    I'm anxious for the datamining to start so we can start getting a look at the new customization options.

    I really wanna see the Revendreth covenant cosmetics, hope we get some sick ass vampire wings or something, that'd be enough to make them my covenant from that alone lol.

    It's hard to guess what they'll do for some races.

    Trolls are easy, give them a bunch of other tribe options, tattoos/warpaint, etc. Dwarves are similar, Wildhammer was the obvious choice, we might see Frostborn or Earthen as well? Humans are just general expanded options (undead too)

    But what are they going to do for like, Draenei? Man'ari skintones now that the legion has fallen? Would be hype as all hell if they finally let us have access to Broken. Guessing there won't be a ton for Goblins/Worgen/Draenei, probably just expanded base options.

    Gnome's only real place to expand was Mechagnomes, and they exist as an AR now, and it's not like there are other "tribes" of gnomes or they typically use warpaint, etc. (Assuming desert gnomes are too much of a joke to be made into actual options).

    Guessing Pandaren, if they get options, will be expanded faces/hair/etc, and nothing crazy.

    Ah man. The more I think about this, the more I can already see the huge shitstorm brewing when Horde have fel orcs, Taunka/Yaungol, lightforged undead, a bunch of troll tribes, warpaint and tattoos across the board, maybe even high elf options for Belves--and Alliance get human racial options, Wildhammer dwarves, and everyone else is just expanded base options.

    Horse mounts/allied races all over again, you heard it here first.

    Yup. Definitely want to see how far they go and what their limits are with it. Hopefully each race is getting a breadth of options after saying Blood Elves are getting like 40.

    Hell yeah! Reven are the ones I'm most looking out for as well, despite going Kyrian.

    Honestly the covenants feel like they'll have a lot of flavorful things to work towards which is nice.

    Wouldn't expect too much out of customization options. Don't think options like Taunka/Yaungol or Broken will be a thing. Perhaps some more face and eye colour options, more beards, new hairstyles, tattoos and skin colours but that's about it.

    We are so close to an Alpha now, i can feel it in my bones.

    Well either that or my body is starting to go into withdrawal.

    One of the known customizations for Draenei are different tail sizes.... But yeah if other races don't get as varied options there will most likely be a lot of complaints.

    This is the perfect opportunity to get things like Man'ari tones. As far as I'm concerned lore is thrown out the window (it already doesn't make sense a Wildhammer Dwarf is going to have mountain dwarf racials, or that Sand Trolls will have a starting zone meant for jungle trolls, and Dark Troll option existing pretty much kills lore defenses).

    So this could be a good opportunity to continue to break open racial palettes as they've shown with Humans/Dwarves/Trolls/Undead.

    Gnomes could get a few skins akin to Leper looks maybe if people are into that or even more zany hairstyles.

    But yeah I'm very curious what sorts of increased customizations are going to come Alliance side. Horde side it's very easy to go " let's just add more colors of the rainbow for each race!" as they're 'non-human-esque'.

    It's more that previous experience implies that Horde will get loads of requested stuff, like warpaint or red skin orcs and the like, while Alliance might get only a tiny amount of stuff, like the changes to Human facial option and Wildhammer dwarves and nothing else, maybe some new hairstyle for Nelves and things like that, but nothing that has truly been requested, like allowing Nelves to look like Tyrande in the concept art, or giving Velves a lighter skin tone so they look more like High elves. Not to mention allowing Worgen to have other fur colors than just gray.

    I don't think Starting zones will really stop that, one could just say they are X and just ignore the starting zone lore(I mean my character isn't a Stormwindian, he's a Lorderonian.

    If I remember correctly, AR won't get any new customization options. So fair skinned void elves won't happen anyway.

  14. #41574
    Keep in mind that 40 options for a single race isn’t much. It could be 20 for males, 20 for females. So 3 skin colors per sex, 2 tattoo patterns, 5 tattoo colors and that would consume 10 of the 20 options. Throw in hair colors, a couple of hairstyles are voila. 40 new options!

    And who knows, blood elves might have an inordinately high amount of new options. Gnomes could get like 11 options.

    I vaguely remember that only classic races plus Belves and Draenai will get more options, but it's quite possible I'm mixing things up.

    'classic races' means every race that isn't an AR.

    Yea, that's more likely.

    Whatever they said on Blizzcon, it was 5 months ago, a lot could change. Just look at Legion - at reveal we got artifacts, class halls, Demon Hunter, Honor 3.0 + expansion outline. Just 3 months later and we had world quests, mythic+,professions overhaul, legendaries, transmog tab.

    I mean one could always do that (My dwarf shaman isn't bronzebeard he's already Wildhammer). The customization options are just adding justifications for those.

    It still makes no sense in any way that Dark Troll options are being a thing when in BFA we have a confirmed 'last of her kind' Dark Troll in Zuldazar.

    And I am not saying it's a travesty or anything, I love that you will be able to better customize your character and their background.

    All I mean to say is anyone trying to use lore as a reasoning for the added options will be at a loss. These options are lore-agnostic (ie they don't take into account the lore of the race), they're just being added so people have more options to play with.

    That actually puts it into a better perspective holy shit o_O. Sounds less impressive in this context.

    Also did we not already get some datamining that Blood Elf jewelry options exist? So we know at least some of what is coming for them.
