    I wouldn't mind it, either - it's a pretty janky model today.

    They can definitely update the model if they're of a mind to, but it likely won't happen until Kalecgos actually figures into the story in a larger role.

    Kalecgos does not really have a unique model. His model is a standard Stormwind human model. The only thing unique about his model is the 3d elements of his outfit, his blue hair (which is a standard human player hairstyle option), and his face texture which has not weathered the years well and could really do with an up res.

    There is no unique Half-Elf model in the game yet but I do hope Blizzard adds one someday. Right now of the three Half-Elves we have in game, two use the Human model (Alodi and Kalec) and one uses the Blood Elf model (Arator). It would be nice for them all to get a uniquely Half-Elven model that is a true amalgamation of human and Thalassian elf aesthetics.

    I want to see Arator and Vereesa models updated at least. Vereesa should get the pink eyes, and Arator should get the short ears.
    Whatever...

    While I am happy that my High Elves will be able to look closer to how I envision them, I truly hope this serves to move Void Elf and High Elf lore forward, maybe as an united entity instead as two separate groups of thalassian exiles.

    Void Elves, when first introduced at Blizzcon '17, had so much potential in my mind to be the new path of High Elves in the alliance; indeed, with Alleria's journey in Argus, it felt like the perfect set up for the new chapter for High Elves. Instead, we got a previously unmentioned group of Blood Elven exiles. It was pretty frustrating to see such a good opportunity, wasted.

    So I really, really hope this is the first step of a new route for the Void Elves and High Elves as one political entity, closer to what the Void Elves should have been since the beginning.

    I was in a bad mood and I'm surprised I didn't get reprimanded for my hostile reply. Deleting it now
    The Alliance gets the Horde's most popular race. The Horde should get the Alliance's most popular race in return. Alteraci Humans for the Horde!

    I make Warcraft 3 Reforged HD custom models and I'm also an HD model reviewer.

    Oh indeed!

    I have a weird question now tho; are the VE and BE models going to be merged? I don't think so tbh and I do believe they are just going to share textures, but would be interesting to see all that could be done in terms of NPC's if their models were merged.

    Kalecgos' model doesn't actually share the same wireframe ID as the standard Human model - while the rig may well be based on it, it didn't update alongside the Human models in WoD and has remained the same since it was first shown in TBC (in Magister's Terrace). At the time of TBC it was pretty advanced, but it's become degraded a great deal since the WoD model upgrades.

    It was an interesting question imo, because there is a truth in it.

    Funny how 3 people said exactly the same thing.

    This. The next request should be about lore.

    Unfortunately, Shadowlands is shaping up to be pretty thin on Azerothian/mortal lore.

    Maybe we can get something from the Shadows Rising book, but I won't hold my breath. The Alliance feels tackled on that plot and I think we will just get Alleria/Sylvanas exposition, with very little done for the void/high elves.
    Whatever...

    No merge as far as we know. Only textures shared between them. But I think the ear options will be implemented for void elves, as it's pretty simple to do so.

    I wonder if Blizzard will also add high-elf eyes like Vereesa's.

    Confirmation that Void Elves with the human range skins will have their OG underwear back! So it's clear these previews are rough showcases without finalized designs.

    Yeah. And just like you, none of them are "required" to stay in this thread. You can all move on. You always could, but you opted to shackle yourself here. You got the key, man. You always had it. Just unlock your own shackles and move on.

    I concede that his model is not identical to the player Human model then, but I stand by the fact that it appears nearly identical in appearance to a standard human with no real indication of elven ancestry. Would I be correct in assuming Alodi's model is the standard human wireframe since it was added more recently?

    I'd argue Blood Elves are more High Elven than Void Elves - given what happened to the Void Elves. Technically they're both high elves, sure, but I can asure you that Blizzard will never have a Blood Elf or Void Elf NPC say they are a "High Elf".

    The important detail for void elf women, will they have red nail polish with fair skin?

    Blood Elves just became Pandaren.
