    Gnomes... Gnomes are the one that could come out horribly disfigured.
    It's like crossing an intersection. There's shit going on all over the place and you don't panic and act like an idiot then do you?

    I think the most problematic one will be humans because we're humans and know how one should look like. Even if they take a more comical approach it's hard to hit the right spot. The human from the MoP intro looks very good but I doubt that the new model will be close to that. When Garrosh is an indicator for the new Orcs they won't look like the ones from the various intros and even when looking at the Pandaren they don't look like Chen from the intro. He's looking a little bit more slim and taller compared to the in-game model.

    But in my opinion a new character model is only half the rent. Why do Sylvanas, Garrosh, Vol'jin or the Trolls from ToT look so good? Not only because of the new character model but also because they have real 3D armor to a degree. Just look at the female Troll from ToT. Character model is still the same just with better texture and 3D model chest armor and pants.

    I really hope that Blizzard will make better armor in the next expansion. Helmets, shoulders and belts are looking good but especially chest armor and pants doesn't look good.

    To be honest I think they're all going to look fantastic seeing as how their modelling ability has improved so much. Even the look of monsters/mobs that we don't care about all that much while we're fighting them in MoP have ended up looking awesome and leagues ahead of previous expansions.

    My main worries are however:

    - Taking away the muscular, strong physique of Night Elf women in favour of sexing them up. They can still look attractive but don't turn them into barbie dolls. There are Blood Elves for that.

    - That they don't fix particular issues from old models. Like Human females having giant, over sized weapons that are comically bigger than ones Human males have and couldn't possibly carry.

    - That older armour in the game won't look as good on the re-done models.

    - That models they don't think they can do much with will only get high rez textures and slightly more polygons rather than a full make over (eg. Forsaken)

    - That they'll not support the new models with more variety options. Hair, skin colours/types, faces etc...

    Are you for real? They're not even the slightest bit chubby.

    Amen to that sir,NO more skinny bit**es like Belf and Draenei I'm sick of it, we have enough of these two, don't screw up those "healthy" women.
    Only reason i play Nelf hunter is because I like her running and shooting even if I suck at playing hunter

    Rerolling male troll if they make them look like the zandalari.

    Undead male. I think its a both a sensitive model and one that is played by perhaps the biggest douchebags which will whine endlessly. A screw up of the undead model will destroy the forums, imo.

    I am worried that new orcs won't have a hunch.

    we can only wait and see, I just hope that they put the human females on a bit of diet when the new models come out.

    These are allll of my fears exactly. Keep this post handy when an official thread shows up. I'm afraid females will get sexed up like the sylvannas and tyrande models. and how the female pandas look, all with one face. I really don't want to look like :3 all the time.

    I think Sigma's referring to the giant hips that human females have. Seriously, those things are abnormal.

    The exact model may not be what players are getting, but I bet the skeleton and animations are. Blizzard would not devote the time needed to give it a full range of emotes just for a one-off boss model that will never use them.

    Yup, that's my main concern. Night elves looking like blood elves, and dwarf females turned into cutesy clone-faces like the pandaren.

    They cant do any wrong than the current human models, so any improvements is an improvement to me, unless they give humans horse heads or something

    indeed, currently hips, and rest of the human females are out of proportion.

    So, when you ask me "Which new model do you think could come out wrong?" my response is "the models of the new armors and weapons" no doubt ¬¬
    I agree, all of the new models look great...except for Azshara/Tyrande, due to reasons below :P Good sign imo though regarding the new models we have seen, even if they are going to be using new skeletons/etc and not simply reskins like the npcs have (except for Garrosh).

    Ysera would be a good model for night elves, and Alexstraza for blood elves (even though their models are virtually the same and Ysera is using a blood elf reskin along with Alexstraza), because it solves the issue of people complaining about wanting to play a blood elf on Alliance side (although some people legitimately want high elves as a playable race, some people just want to be able to play a blood elf on Alli side, and admit it) by keeping the models nearly virtually identical save perhaps for height and some other race-specific features like tattoos, skin color, etc.

    Night elves are athletic looking, which is fine, but something feels off about the Tyrande/Azshara models we saw in Well of Eternity last expansion...Azshara was supposed to be this drop-dead beauty to rival all beauties in Azeroth, but her model didn't really reflect that. I think Night Elves should end up looking like something between the current night elf model and the current blood elf model--slightly more feminine but not quite as small and delicate looking as blood elves, still graceful looking and powerful.

    I'm interested in seeing what Blizzard will do w/gnomes and forsaken. I love the male gnome model w/the white beard, but female gnomes never really looked "right" to me and therefore never bothered playing one. Forsaken...I have a feeling that model will end up looking very different from what we see in game currently.

    I'm a bit afraid for new fem Draenei models. hope they won't take their sexappeal

    The undead are pretty tricky.

    They need a lot of customization options to be interesting (the bones should be optional, for starters), they are supposed to be ugly and, at the same time, they must look appealing.
    English is not my first language, feel free to correct any mistake I may make.

    No, she wouldn't. She doesn't look anything like a night elf.

    I'd be interested in finding out what irl gender these players are regarding female characters looking "too sexy" or whatever because personally, as a female player, I actually like the way Sylvanas/Tyrande/Alexstraza look. Wow is pretty tame in the sex appeal department, and I would prefer to have somewhat attractive looking character options rather than having a choice between playing a female human with hips that are 200% the size of her legs or an overweight pandaren/female dwarf. :P

    No, she wouldn't. She doesn't look anything like a night elf.
    That's fine by me. I like the current night elf model, but I also like the Ysera model better in a lot of ways.
