    Anyone want completely revamp of Belf and Draenei male models?

    Seriously look at them, Belf is the only "Good looking" male race in wow, sadly they are just too feminine, look at their beards, the way they sit, the way they walk, no only that but why does they have their mouth open while they sit in chairs and ride mounts? Their two handed combat animation is a bit ackward too, it looks like they can't lift their sword properly.

    Now draenei male, I think they can look pretty good but the problem is... HAVE YOU SEEN THEIR FACES? Ugly, and the ENORMOUS size of their chest. Their sitting animation (Chair) Is also a bit ackward and their arms are too thick. Anyone else?

    is just downright strange. (Also, what's a feminine beard look like? You meet that many women with goatees?)

    So you just made a thread to pick on things people have picked on a thousand times?

    I'll never understand why a goatee in Azeroth is somehow not manly enough. Maybe it's one case where we really should apply real world standards of letting it be acceptable. If we did the reverse every rocker boy and average guy with a goatee would never hear the end of it from other more unkempt men.

    Sit? Everyone sits a bit weird, they aren't real.
    Walk? What's wrong with their walk... They walk with an attitude, not even flamboyantly or anything.
    Open mouth.. I dunno.. that could change, but I guess even Azeroth has it's mouth breathers. (Granted I love the bandana style masks to I tend to forget about it.)
    Rogue, so can't comment there on the weapons complaint. His Mutilate is hot though, thank you.

    Draenei, may as well not even complain, their proportions will no doubt be staying what they are. And the faces... they're aliens, what do you expect. Also if you had to sit with a big tail you'd do it oddly, too.

    They should get a makeover like everyone else is, but if you're expecting extreme changes, well good luck.

    Yes. In fact, Draenei are being worked on right now, prior to some vanilla races.

    I wouldn't mind making BElves a little more masculine, but not too much - there are lots of brutal races already. I mean a little more power to their moves, a little less flamboyance, not beards or anything.

    Draenei look unappealing imo - I don't usually play female caracters, but in case of Draenei I had to choose female for my low-lvl Shaman alt. I'm not sure how Draenei males could be fixed - large upper body and small hooves are intentional design features. Their faces are ok I guess when compared to body stature.

    Yea Draenei males need some attention.

    Smaller torso/arms and more proportional to legs. Longer thinner tail with a skeleton and animations.

    How is a beard feminine? o.o

    Only change id like to see to Belf male is the way Shoulders sit. Face-side they angle out as well as sit 'off' of the shoulder. Look at current DK Tier on a Belf Male. Maybe if they drew the shoulders closer inwards to hide our actual shoulders. And their lips. Theres one animation where they look half-Joker half-lip less. Other than that, their body size and style is enough of a call back to WC2 Elves.

    Draenei id like to look a little more like their concept art. To me, the size of their chest to leg ration is out of proportion. Friends dont let friends skip leg day.

    I don't want Belf revamps period. Part of the reason I was so excited for character model updates was that it might encourage people who only play the "good looking" races like OP to see an updated Orc and think "Hey, not so ugly! I might try that"

    It would have gone a long way in fixing the massive disparity of players that roll Humans and Blood Elves compared to the other races of their factions, but oh well.

    I think OP wants peach skinned draenei and blue skinned belves.

    I agree with this guy (?). The scewed shoulder thing bugs me to no end...
    that and the fact that shoulder gear floats half-a-foot from the body.

    And for Draenei, at least give the option for super long tails and rugged
    horns.

    Nope, I don't agree. Male belfs and draenei are currently my two favourite male models in game, and not just because they comparatively look less crap than the vanilla ones.

    Also, how can you say that a beard looks feminine?

  13. #13
    I don't want them really, time and time again Blizzard have said the art team is where most of the delays happen.

    I would much rather they spent time doing content so we don't have year long raids again thanks.

    I don't like the way the blood elf male's butt flattens and crinkles at the bottom when they sit.

    I've probably said too much...

    To all the people complaining about feminine beards.. You do know homosexual males exist, right? A homosexual (obviously being homosexual is not a requirement, for those of you bound to get stuck up on this bit) male can be almost every bit of feminine as a woman can (except for the obvious bits). "Feminine" is a more politically correct way of saying "gay" in this case, and not a single one of you can claim to not have at least heard of Blood Elf males looking "gay" - you know exactly what the OP means.

    Regardless, as others have said, races are unlikely to change particularily. Even though I'd love for Draenei males to be playable, I'm sadly doubting that'll happen.
    I'm not a native English speaker, and yet, I don't suck at English. The argument "English is not my mother tongue" doesn't actually give you an excuse to do so.

    They should remove male belfs and draenai. From experience the worst kind of players play those two race genders since they appeal to kids so much. Also pandarians and gnomes. I hate all 4 of those races.

    And undead, and human males with manga hair, and Retribution paladins. Fuck them seriously.

    Honestly we should just go ahead and remove every race except bald Human males and Human females.

    Mega lies. To the tenth power.


    On topic, think Draenei Males and Females could use a bit of a touch-up. Make the males look less boxy and fridge-like, and make the females look more in-line with the males, or vice-versa.

    But I kinda doubt that'll be the case.

    Blood elf models are that of actual real life fit men if you would bother to look at pictures. They are not too overly feminine except some jokes they have, but that's not related to model at all. They walk normally and honestly I don't see your issue here.

    As for draenei males, it's not the size of the chest that's the problem, but how they walk. Their model is ok, their walking animation makes you feel like you're playing a baloon with legs...
