    Well, I think Orcs will have some customization options but overall they will all look quite similar to Garrosh still. That's just a result of the facial animations.

    And I agree on the Vol'jin model. It made sense to let Garrosh be the blueprint for the new Orc player model since a lot of detail and facial animations went into it. But Vol'jin's model doesn't seem as advanced as Thrall's or Garrosh'. So while I believe he'll be the inspiration for it, I don't think the new Troll player models will look completely the same. And you're right, they might tweak Vol'jin a bit more while they're at it.

    We were told by a blue they look nothing like the Thunder patch trolls and are a big improvement. Those are just model updates.

    One of these days I will level him up enough to get Rend's Doomsaw, so close, already level 50, after I made him 5 years ago lulz.

    It kicks much ass, well done.

    No, if anything is bullshit it's an unreasonable attitude like that. They go far out their way in the game embellishing things all over the place, that's part of what made WOW so different compared to other MMOs. They do it based on what is currently in their tunnel vision, because Blizzard tends to work on what inspires them, while they have a massive list of features they would like to get around to doing. This attitude that they rehash everything and take short cuts everywhere and put the least effort possible is just silly if you really take a look at all the embellishing they've done that you didn't care about personally.

    That depends on your own personal value of the project, and I'm personally getting really weary of people who don't care about these things acting like they are the model for the average player. But that's extrinsic incentives bias for you.

    Because it's not an analogous comparison at all. But our species struggles with something known as context when it comes to just about everything I guess.

    True. The hand painted textures are so lovely.

    Take heart, Chris Robinson has said a few things on twitter about new beard and hairstyles based specifically on the iconic concept art seen at the Sons of the Storm. You just might have your wish come true.

    Ner'zhul has a tattoo, not a mask. Like Chapel from the comic book Spawn and Youngblood.

    Leper gnomes don't make sense because they're zombies. But any race with free will could make sense. In the Lore you will find unique individuals from anywhere as part of the Alliance and Horde. Just as you see every single race in the game in certain NPC factions as cultists or pirates.

    I normally hate Draenei, but if I had the option to be either of their broken 'mutated' models, I'd certainly roll one.

    Trolls have the absolute most options in the game, but unfortunately the Horde is comprised of only one type of Troll.
    If an orc blademaster can journey to Outland to make himself a Chaos Orc to kill Chen, then we have precedent. Racial profiling from social norms is all well and good, but we have free will, and we should be able to make use of the rich lore of this game if we understand it, and those who don't,... who cares? Your knowledge of the lore should let you come up with your own explaination for seeing them in Orgrimmar. We should not be limited so much by social norms if the options are beings perfectly capable of free will.

    It makes sense for class restrictions, preserving the feel of the universe is important. But many of these weirder options have precedent and only make the world more interesting.

    I was talking about the minigun orc's mask, which has obviously been inspired by Ner'zhul. Though looking back on my post, I can understand how my wording seemed to imply Ner'zhul had a mask as well. I apologize.

    Also, here is a Human Paladin mockup done by a Wildstar artist, for World of Warcraft.

    I will as soon as new models are released! And if they don't in the next week or so I guess I'll make some male Wildhammers and Leper Gnomes or put the female undead new model on the right skeleton or something.

    Wildstar just looks so good it brings a tear to my eye, like the Iron Giant meets Pixar. Only WOW did that for me before, looking forward to Wildstar a lot.

    I thought you probably knew but just in case I wanted to point out the distinction. Having an any excuse to talk about WOW for me is fun.

    I would love a Half-Elf sub-race for humans. Something in the vain of Kalecgos's(spelling?) Half-Elf form. For now I am waiting for the male Draenei remodeled... models.

    Wow, they look really cool! I'd love to see most of these ingame, except maybe for fel orcs. Not that I dislike the design, it's just the idea of individuals that are currently under demonic influence within the current horde that feels off. But anyway, that's for anyther topic.
    PvE:er to the bone. Plays a druid. Also plays DotA and a whole bunch of other stuff. Listens to mostly everything.

    The Horde Portal-Sentries at the Dark Portal are all fel orcs.

    Have to disagree, black tauren = awesome. My tauren is colored specifically to have the black tauren cat druid - I'd love to have that grimtotem skin in caster form.


    Also, have to agree with others, blizzard with all it's resources, it's absolutely inexcusable that the game doesn't have more options. If the new models ship with only the basic previous coloration options, I'm going to be really disappointed.

    These really are terrific, though I do have to say Dark Iron dwarves aren't quite as cool without bright red beards.
