Inclusivity Updates in Dragonflight - Body Type Names, New Pronouns and Voice Options
Dragonflight Alpha brings several new inclusivity updates and character customization changes to World of Warcraft.


Body Type Names
The body type names "Male" and "Female" have been renamed to "Body 1" and "Body 2" in Dragonflight Alpha. This can be seen in both the character creation screen and at the barbershop in-game.




New Pronouns
Datamining hints that players will be able to customize their character's pronouns, although the feature is not available for testing in the first Dragonflight Alpha Build. Current pronoun options include He/Him, She/Her and They/Them.



Voice Options and Inclusivity
In the Developer Interview with Ion Hazzikostas it was revealed that voice options will be coming in Dragonflight.

  • Players will be able to choose the body type and voice independently of each other.
  • The team is proud of the customization options for the Dracthyr race, there are a quadrillion of combinations possible.
  • The game should be as inclusive as possible, so players can customize and express themselves like they want to.

    I don't really care about the change because it has no affect on me whatsoever. But was anyone really asking for this? Just curious why this change is needed in a game that has been around since 2004. Just a question not trying to offend anyone.

    Is see the rampant mental illness is finally reaching wow full stop... Pathetic and a shame...
    And the hypocrisy and irony of some of these arguments are truly hilarious and the mental gymnastics to reach it is just sad...

    Because called LGBT people groomer is very old and tired hate speech, and it's especially rich coming from the rightwingers who protect and elect actual groomers.

    The average American obese body is already represented in the game as the Kul-Tiran. All they need to do is rename it to Body 5 then.

    Why is this hate and racism against white men ok but pointing your the entitlement and questioning why your feelings are somehow worth more than others is an automatic ban?

    Why is the previously masculine model designated as body1? Does that means the other body type is only secondary? Fucking sexist pigs.

But we've clearly passed the point where we should have stopped, but let's keep going and see what happens!
    mmm, being tolerant to intolerant people rarely, if ever works out the way you think or hope...
    What baffles me the most is how the same moment loves to defend islam, a religion and group of people who literally kills any of them on sight simply for existing but they still defend them while simultaneously call all white men the bane and root of all evil...... Its lunacy...

    idk, maybe it's not bannable if it's true?

    They are pandering to the lowest denominator REALLY hard with this shit, but honestly, who cares?
    Nothing really changes, besides giving the people that want this the option to actually take advantage of it.
    Getting riled up over this feels a bit silly in my book! :P

    Honest question, why is anyone's feelings more important than others? The emotions either side feel is exactly the same?

    Why are the feelings of real people more valid than basement dwelling incel school shooting internet toughguys?

    Not sure really, you've made a very pertinent point we should certainly discuss further.

    And it just gets even worse the second you realize the US is not the entire world and also a shocker, all of us didn't even have black slaves... My own country? We had white slaves, which we also treated pretty good...

    But this is a decision and label you've made to somehow excuse the exact behavior you call out?
    Why do you act the exact same but think you're better?

Then there's "bring your child to a drag show" and "show you child kink" beliefs. I'm gay and I know this is horrific and wrong. It's frankly degenerate and I would never been in the same building as a 4 years old and kinksters or 90% nude drag queens dancing provocatively. Because I'm not a nonce and I don't want to go to jail.

    I don't own an AR-15. A gentlemen wields a blade.
    MAPs are not a tool of the left, they're 4chan kids taking advantage of pro-LGBT people trying to push and split the agenda. Show me numbers on how many people have been sexually assaulted at drag shows, I'm sure I can find the number of Catholic priests that do the same, or even just right wing politicians. And stop being condescending, you fucking prick.

    This would be like me saying "Why are the feelings of real people more valid than grooming pedohiples?

    Don't you see how stupid this becomes?
