    Should Gilneans get a unique Human look?

    Since the Worgens have yet to get a full model update, I was wondering what people thought about having them getting a unique look to their human forms.

    Nothing as drastic as the Kul Tiran look, but maybe something like a scruffier looking human that would look like they would turn into a Werewolf, or even something more posh and noble looking that would befit Genn Greymane's official concept art or Heroes of the Storm look (which i think isn't well represented in WoW). Something like Jekyll and Hyde options, a very Victorian looking human with monocle options.



    This means we could get a female Gilnean look too, maybe females with sharper features and more pointy noses. Just some subtle distinctive features but all using the same Human rigs.

    I mean it would be great if they ended up making their human forms look a bit more rougher and weathered and give them some messy/tangled hair options to fit with how the curse has affected them + the harsher environment of Gilneas but I doubt Blizzard is going to invest time in giving that sort of cosmetic variation to one singular race especially when players are so rarely in that form and don't say in it for a long time as is.
    There's this horrible realisation that BfA could all just be a fever dream caused by Argus cleaving us.
    Daily reminder that Steam has never had a monopoly on PC Gaming, don't mistake age and popularity for domination.

    I don 't see why not

    Perhaps some different physical customizable features that are only unique to them ( like certain facial hair(s), hair styles , skin color ) but the human model should remain

    Since you 'll be in Worgen form 95% of the time anyway , why not ?

    Would be lovely but not really much needed, they already have a unique look. I mean, they transform into damn Worgen.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    I'd love a more human looking Worgen form instead.

    I think they should keep the same base model, but just add unique rugged faces and hairstyles.

    Waste of development time and energy. How often you turn into human form with worgen? I think last time I used that was in cataclysm, lol.

    I think doing so would probably go against Blizz's general philosophy for model updates which is to make the new models look as true to their previous iteration as possible. I doubt anyone would be opposed to simply adding new hair/skin options, but making new, non-standard human models for Worgen is probably not on the table, which is understandable. I'm more realistically hoping for Worgen/Goblin heritage armor to come with their updates.

    They should get victorian hairstyles. I think they should just copy mechagnomes in that matter.

    Worgen have less hairstyles/beards than standard humans. They can fill this gap with new victorian stuff.

    There is market for these changes so I don't see any waste.

    They could easily reskin them with pointed ears similar to how Greymane looks in HotS

    Maybe even yellow or red eyes

    I like that idea. I don't think they need to be totally different in their build. That's a waste of resources in my opinion, but some different options for face and hairstyles seems like it would be a fair trade. Maybe some access to more Victorian clothing.

    Well isn't that the point of any character's visuals?

    I mean I main a Druid but I still don't want a derpy armor tier sets just because I'm in bear form 90% of the time in dungeons.

    Back in Cata, some of the more acceptable Worgen Female customizations ended up with horrible Human face counterparts. I don't know if the Human customization is now unbound from the Worgen choices, but man some of the combos were terrible.

    What market? 3 people on mmo-champ forums? No one ever uses gilnean human form in game, they would better use that developement time to add more hairstyles and customisation to the actualy worgen form.

    Druids are different example. Resto use normal model all the time and many boomkins use glyph of stars, plus it has to look good because its gear, people gonna farm it for transmog or other shit. I mean if we gonna update human models, let ir be regular humans first, they still look like ape-man with cone beards and box hairs.

    In general updated humans could have many features that worgen humans could use aswell, so would be win-win situation.

    I'd rather resources go into class development than a form no one will use

    I wouldn't mind more hairstyles at least, but would be cool if their faces were more grizzled and refined. Would make me stay out of worgen form more often.

    They should let you play as a Gilnean. Worgen are lame but Gilneans look and sound cool.

    They should at least let you customize both shapes separately.

    Do you mean new class art? Because this suggestion doesn't involve any class designers to implement, only art. We've already see the new Worgen models shown at Blizzcon, so I'm only suggesting updated human heads or hairstyles to go along with, given that they have the time and budget for it.

    If you're talking about class development as in game design, I'm not sure this is taking any resources away from that at all.
