    We should only have one race while we're at it, because who cares what their character looks like, amirite?

    If this game didn't have some focus on how you look, the game wouldn't have so many features that focused solely on aesthetics. The game is 9 years old and won't stay in the competition if it still looks like year one Runescape. Wood carving faces covered in flashy armor with tentacles, Christmas lights and Garrosh's left nut hanging off of them look pretty goofy.

    I don't get all the excitement either. I'm never that zoomed in for any length of time and the majority of the time my toons are covered up with armor.

    So for me, I don't give a rats a$$ about them.

    However, In saying that, I have no problem with it.

    I agree, in part, that after some time, we will get used to the models and in game and stop caring. However, every time I look at the current models in game, they scream "outdated" so it is needed, especially for potential new players.

    That doesn't make any sense. Tmog is popular because the ARMOR is what you see for the vast majority of people, not hands and faces. Yes, a lot of people opt to have the helmet hidden but unless you're Rping or zoomed in for some reason it's still an indistinct blur. And after the first month or two the new look will be familiar and old hat anyway(after 9 years playing, the physical appearance of any of my toons is one of the last things I worry about). Big brouhaha over nothing imo.

    I play with the camera not too far from the character themselves Also unless it is a circlet or something I play with my helm and cloak hidden. And I care a hella lot more about how my character looks than raiding for some temporary purples.

    It's also nice to finally see some updates. Was getting tired of the Nintendo 64 look.

    Looking at the human female update on the front page makes me think these updated character models are much ado about nothing. They barely look different to me. What a waste of time and resources. This is going to turn out worse than he cataclysm revamp.

    While I like the updates thus far, not sure I'll see much of my own character's faces that often and I'll be zoomed out so um... yeah. I rarely notice animations differences, either.

    Not likely, they have a dedicated art team doing the models. Unfortunately, that also means they're taking forever to accomplish a single race/gender. Assuming Blizzard's CEO went completely insane and said they wouldn't released WoD until the models are finished and if they keep at this pace it'll be 2015 before the next expansion is released.

    Enjoyed Draenor questing. If you ignore the end of Nagrand, it's almost as good as 5.0.

    Something that some of you don't realise is that the new models will affect NPCs...so yeah, it's a big thing, we will see every single NPC that uses the character models updated, imagine every single orc from SoO updated for example.

    Character models will likely have a pretty big impact on how armor is rendered on our characters. So yes, you probably will notice a difference.

    Also, new animations, rigging, etc. And maybe human females will have normal sized weapons.

    And while I'm here and thinking about it, as someone who mains an orc, I like what I see. Now I just need to see the troll models so I can have an idea of how awesome my DK will look.

    Except for pretty much every single NPC you interact with looking better because of this. Not to mention the difference in animations and the way that armor will look on top of the new models. Oh, I don't wear helmets either so I can look at my character's face... maybe I just think tusks are cute though.

    You all go on about npcs. I barely look at them. It's still a waste of time. One of the dumbest things blizzard has ever put resources into.

    It's a waste of time for you, then. Thankfully you're not everyone.

    You know, the last 3 letters of the word MMORPG?

    Same here, except instead of tusks, it's my mohawk and braided goatee.

    Because it isn't just about the model itself, but how the armour sits on the model, the animations, the movements and the general feel of the game overall. It's ~10 years old the models, they need updating.

    Again, look at the front page, they BARELY look different. It's a waste of time at the expense of real content. It's not worth it. It's cataclysm all over again.

    Becuase someone that might be intrested in the game might look at the game and say ''wtf these characters look like they are from 2003''?. It can atract or retain people.

    And most importantly, the game doesn't look awful to today's standards.
