    Draenei model speculation

    anyone else curious to see what they do with the draenei?

    I for one am curious to see if they come out more exotic looking, like the original design they were forced to scrap for time. Or if they will retain the pretty blood elf face. (females)


    As well as the obvious, the tails, will they be able to make them as long as they should be and not weird little limp stubs (both male and female) Perhaps they will also have the ability to make them move sometimes, like any tail on an animal does. Add a little more immersion to the character

    I'm a Horde player, but very excited to see what they do with the draenei, same goes for Bloodelfs.

    what's this exotic look you're talking about (original design??)?

    None of my characters are draenei (anymore, racechanged my Paladin because I realized it was a stupid idea since I play PvP), but I'm still excited to see the new models, they're cool

    Well the overall difference between draenei and eredar is very small.

    Ever notice how male eredar and male draenei look mostly the same. Yet female eredar and female draenei are so drastically different?

    the female was slapped together as I understand. They should look a little more like the males, that Slavic style. As well, their tails are supposed to be much longer. As they are for balance.

    there is even a new artwork of a new major character draenei who looks more like the original concept art.

    I hope they look like those twins that Kirk was in bed with in Star Trek: Into Darkness.

    Sorry, probably Japanese in a past life lol.

    Unfortunately, they've already stated they're not making any drastic changes to the models, just more polys for the most part.

    So I doubt we'll see real tails, the Draenei female face MIGHT be less cutesy since that's a major part of adding polys is structuring the face... But the important parts, like making male Draenei not refrigerators in comparison to the female is not likely to happen.

    Been contemplating swapping from human to draenei for a while, but haven't cause:
    1. I love EMFH in PvE FAAAAR too much.
    2. (More recently) The new human female models are purdy.

    If dranaei get a bit more Yrel treatment in game, and the racials are better balanced, I might still go Draenei in WoD.

    I hope they make the males thinner, and that females get the same shoulder treatment that the female orcs got and a straightened back. The way their backs are atm is just stupid.
    Zul Farrak, Zul Gurub, Zul Aman, Gundrak, Zul Gurub (again), Zul Aman (again), Kun Lai Summit, Mogu'Shan Vaults, Isle of Giants, Isle of Thunder and Throne of Thunder was merely a setback, mon! Ya ain't be seeing tha last of Zul and tha Zandalari!

    Yrel's artwork looks badass as fuck, I doubt that she'll be that cool ingame though

    My lvl 2 Sham is Draenei F, but anyway I would like to see the change
    I think it will be similar to Draenei F appeared at WoD cinematic

    Oh and by the way, I think it will be highly possible that they might give us female goat with armor on and claim that it is actually Draenei F for April Fool's Day joke

    that's really how they should look. It's unfortunate they are so afraid of pissing people off they won't take the models to a better place. like Yrel

    I would laugh at this. And an actual cow for Tauren, wolf for Worgen, and say they're adding a new tree form which is just a stick.

    I like the big ol' fat dancing tree.

    Also if they make a new tree before a new boomkin druids might riot

    Unfortunately that's just how WoW has been. They're so afraid of making people upset that they won't make majorly needed quality of life changes for fear of more sub losses.

    I would love to see all the models get a major overhaul. I'd love to see some heavy customization added to the game. (I played a Wildstar beta this past weekend, and the customization was limited, but still LEAPS and BOUNDS ahead of WoW.) Unfortunately, I know nothing like that is likely to happen for a loooooong time with WoW.

    And give us the poly count for how they got their models to look so photo realistic.

    Honestly, I think it depends on what desinger is working on them. Seeing as Chris told us they aren't done as a team, but more separate.

    The undead really really do look like an overhaul. the females even more so then the males. the detail in the undead so far vastly outweigh the rest. Imo

    I would like to know who worked on them, because so far the undead look the best, look at the undead female update, next to the human female update.
