    Nightborne heritage armor doesn't look good with that kilt...doesn't look good at all.

    The loading looks like something out of Warcraft Travelers or whatever it's called. Not a good look for a war heavy game.

    I REALLY love the Highmountain music. It seems so subdued in the zone itself but listening to it removed from the game really makes it sound rather epic. Probably one of my faourtie tracks of Legion.

    I was mildly interested in Velfs, this music they have is slowly changing that. Really loving the music they seem to have.

    I guess they won't change that loading screen since they haven't changed those terrible new character-portraits in the race selection menu.

    I haven't read any good feedback about those, still they add them to the game.

    Raptor Strike (New) Raptor Strike deals 40% increased damage. Hunter - Survival Spec."

    Thats something I don't get lol I rly rly like the survival spec, just tried bm and was bursting out in laughter.. anyway, will survival get a nerf? or is it a buff?

    Agree, that loading screen looks merely like concept art.

    Void Elf themes are terrific. Loving the woodwind and Diablo-esque guitar.

    Wonder how much more evidence it's gonna take for the naysayers to realize that those 4 Allied Races are coming in 7.3.5...

    Random buffs to warlock you say?

    Is that loading screen legit? Looks fan-made
    I believe it wasn't the first time, the garrison loading screens had a different style.

    That's exactly the point. You might not like it, but that's purely down to a stylistic choice. The execution of that style is fine, I've not seen any reasonable criticism to suggest otherwise. By no reasonable artistic analysis is it 'high-school quality'.

    The green and red text is the wrong way around. It's a buff. And a big buff for BM...

    Probably a pre-purchase being made available officially stating such.

    Some people are just hard to convince.

    that loading screen art is awful, low quality and does not fit the art style of WoW, too lighthearted

    Some of the BfA screenshots, especially in Kul'Tiras zones, look Wind Waker-ish as well. Maybe a subtle shift in art style?

    haha, I had the same reaction!

    That loading screen art looks awful in comparison to the past. I don't know what's up with the latest art reveals, including the Chronicles v3 art, but it looks cartoonish and completely out of place. In this particular loading screen the dwarf is barely reckognizable too(looks like a humanoid fox with braids?) and the worgen looks like a human with a wolf mask.

    Seems like the art department has seen a huge drop in quality lately. Hope they get to changing things for the better in there and I'm still hopeful they'll change this artwork alltogether, including the Chronicles v3 one.

    The dwarf looks like some type of humanoid furry with braids(I literally thought it is a vulpera or something and had to pause for a second and think about what the hell is depicted). The worgen doesn't represent the worgen model at all and looks like a human dressed as a werewolf for Halloween. I've got no idea what the last two Alliance soldiers are and which race they belong to, but I can only guess it is a human and a draenei or two humans.

    The tauren looks like a sad, tootless grinning dingo.

    I love this loadingscreen. I think its an refreshing take on the warcraft art. Iam not sure how i will feel about it after seeing it in every BG, but for now i love it
