    They decided that Cata Garrosh isn't good enough in today's standarts even for a raid boss... Pretty safe to assume that BC races will get their turn.

    the BE and Dranei are better then the Vanilla ones, but so much worse then the newer goblin/worgen and pandaren.

    skipping them over when the new models come would be an huge mistake. so i expect them to be redone also.

    I don't think they're going to, but I would like to see it.

    Blizzard said it in blue.

    Facts :

    -They are not as oudated as the classic ones
    -They are dated compared to the Worgen / Goblin / Pandaren
    -Blood elf females + Draenei females share the same faces ,with the draenei having a stretched version
    -BLizz have said they wish to bring the models to a "pandaren quality" in terms of animations ,textures etc. BE + Draenei are clearly not at that level.
    -Not really sure about the Draenei but the Blood Elves is umh , second played race in the game ? Not sure it would be a good move to not update them also.

    What are your thoughts ? Will these 2 be updated or will they be skipped ?

    My opinion : They will be updated also.
    It would be the best and especially the only way to stop the fire. What fire you ask? Hooo boy. Once the belf and draenei players see the detail and 2014 quality on the vanilla models, if they don't get that treatment as well, there's going to be rioting in the streets(forums).

    So yes, they will get updated as well. Otherwise blizzard HQ will burn to the ground.
    Having feminists design female characters for your game is like asking the Klan to design black characters for your game. At best, you will get mediocrity, at worst downright ugly characters.

    Yes. They are a lot less detailed than pandas. But more than the rest, so they don't need that major updates.

    Blood Elf and Draenei models must be updated also, is pure logic...

    And what's more, if Blizzard update the models of the blood elves, they should create own models for the high elves (different animations, different figure, different voices) for not rely on placeholders once and for all (as everything related with the quel'dorei ingame are currently mere placeholders).

    Blizzard better update the Belves and Draenei too. I am tired of my Belf's hair going through his freaky pecs.

    They need to be a straight copy to be any realistic.

    Hope they don't update Blood Elf and Draenei, they're far from outdated.

    No. Just different phrases, but keep the same voices and everything.

    I think they will be, but they'll be lower priority than the rest.

    On the other hand, a lot of people play blood elves so the demand for updated blood elf models should conceivably be higher than, say, trolls.

    Implying that Blizzard acknowledges the existence of draenei. Leaving draenei out of things seems to be the standard.

    Given they bundle BC races with the Vanilla races now, I think they fully intend to.
    You're not to think you are anything special. You're not to think you are as good as we are. You're not to think you are smarter than we are. You're not to convince yourself that you are better than we are. You're not to think you know more than we do. You're not to think you are more important than we are. You're not to think you are good at anything. You're not to laugh at us. You're not to think anyone cares about you. You're not to think you can teach us anything.

    Actually, they bundle all the races with Classic now. All BC/Wrath content is included with Classic, as are all the playable races.

    Currently, the only thing you don't have access to when buying the base game is the Monk class, the Archaeology profession, the Flight Master's License (old world flying), and the level 80+ content.

    Doubtful they'll be done right away. And I'm glad for that.

    I actually think BElf and Draenei have the best animations of all the races. Both male and female.

    I expect they'll be updated, just as a last priority. Hell, one could even argue that worgen/goblin could use some touching up compared to the Pandaren and impending new races. I'd like to think that's why Blizzard "let" the female worgen be such a failure of a model, because they knew they were planning to redo it in a few years anyway.

    I'd like to, but I don't.
