    All this time and you still didn't realize that when you put an armor on you are largely just putting a new skin over the character model? You are not alone in this, since many repeat this argument. Large parts of your "armor" are just a new texture applied to your old 3d body...

    New models in nothing developers can brag about in a game that has 12 mil players and monthly subscriptions that bring in a ton of cash.

    I see a lot of people saying that the new models might come at the cost of "actual content".
    Even if this would be true (which it probably isn't), in my opinion, it still would be perfectly fine.

    PvEers etc. should and will get their content. But Blizzard shouldn't only cater to those people, but also to RPers etc. for which good looking models ARE very important.

    Who is 'we'?

    Many players have wished for updated models, to make the game more pleasing on the eye.

    Some people do more in the game than playing arena/raiding heroic content...

    After all, is this game not an RPG?

    it is true that new models are just a graphical update...same as if they were introducing new content: new grass model.
    BUT... its a lot of work and fans will love it coz we more atracked to our models then to the grass...so its enough big change.
    I wouldent say that its a smaller adding then the new race for example

    I don't give a rats ass about PvP, do I give Blizzard flak for including new Battlegrounds, Arena's or PvP sets? Or for changing PvE to accomodate PvP balance? No, because I'm not a spoiled 12 year old that thinks the world revolves around me, try to realize that many people play WoW for completely different reasons than you and that this is a change that many people have been asking for for many years, instead try being happy that you will get improved animations and the fact that Blizzard is giving a large portion of the playerbase what they want.

    I don't know about you guys. But I'm happy that my orc won't stare into the abyss anymore with those red eyes of his. Bugs and all the stuff won't enter his mouth anymore. And he won't look like a kid with down syndrome (not trying to offense the poor kids that have this syndrome)

    Well you obviously don't appreciate the art of the game. When I create a character, I take my time. I go through all of the choices and find the ones best suited for me. I love the idea of re-vamping old models but retaining the "soul" of the old models. I appreciate the art that goes into any game, whether it be the characters or the environment.

    This pretty much, and also, I prefer to play without my cape/helm on, so I prefer updated faces/hair/animations, they should also update old critters (BUNNIES) and mounts.

    Obviously NOTHING in WoW can be generalized with "we". It is not even like "we" love to be able to fly. Somebody will always hate something and consider it "the worst idea evah". So you can look forward to a thread titled "Character model updates - worst idea ever" one day.

    I still see your point, yes - we cover characters in armor and zoom out. But that is not the end of it. There is RP armor and the odd sad person will wear the most "sexy" armor possible. But the update also extends to NPC and by the X-pac after the next, even armor could get an upgrade pass (to a certain extend)

    Makes everything fit better together - Panadaren and the current armor tiers are already more detailed, boss models and faction leaders already have nicer models.

    Character models are part of an ongoing and slow visual upgrade for everything IMHO

    I don't care about pets, PvP, 5 mans and achievements, but I know some people enjoy them and I am not trying to get them removed just because I don't see their point.

    I want to know when they'll let us vary the body shape/height of our characters. So that all humans/orcs/trolls/dwarfs etc. don't look identical when armoured up.

    Obviously many people care about graphics, why else would game studios devote entire departments to making art for the game?
    why else are we not still playing with PS1/N64 like graphics?
    A lot of the extra power the Xbox one and PS4 have over the 360 and PS3 is used to power more polygons on screen and more particles being emitted.

    WoW is a 10 year old game, the models are very outdated.
    Only because of the artstyle I can still stand looking at the model but everyone who even bothers to look close to their own character sees the flaws and jaggedness.
    some of the races I can't stand to play because the animations are so incredibly stiff (Troll and Orc female) and some look like they were never finished (Tauren female)

    Would I quit if they didn't update the models? No as long as the game is fun I don't mind it looking dated but I am damn glad they do update them because I do like looking at nice graphics.
    I think updating the models was necessary to bring WoW into the future.
    Look at Druids, I wonder how many Druids want to go back to the old Bear and Cat forms.

    I agree with you to a point OP, we usually just look at our characters up close when we're standing still not doing much. Overall it wouldn't really matter to me if we got new models or not. But it is refreshing to see something new

    I do the same thing, when creating a character,a nd totally agree with retaining the "soul" of the old models. I often look at my character when I'm standing still and admire my xmog or the savage orc features. But once raiding or bgs happen most of that goes away, except animations. So I would agree with Op on that point.

    Because the older races look outdated compared to the pandaren and other newer races. Even a jinyu looks better then my orc shaman

    Character customization is as much part of the game as actual features are. It's no coincidence that most RPGs allow you to customize your character, starting on body features and ending on the name. This model update has been requested for quite a long time, and they are finally delivering it. Slowly, but surely. Perhaps it wasn't exactly "needed", but it sure is welcome by most of us.

    Also, anyone who says the new versions barely look different (or worse) than the old ones is being downright dishonest, or fishing for reactions. I think it's difficult to argue that the old ones have anything at all that looks better.
