    New Rokhan model speculation



    Obviously this is for WC3 but he should be next in line for a new model in WoW so I wonder if it could look something like this. It's freaking badass.

    Most of the new models in WC3: Reforged are really, really badass. Even more so, there seem to be unique models for characters that are lore characters but never appeared in-game in WC3 or WC3: TFT. I wonder if we will be getting expanded story telling for the main campaigns or even added missions/added story for the main campaigns.

    Hell, even new campaigns altogether?

    Not to get off-topic, because I like Rokhan, but I think some other characters should get unique models before him.

    Who? Most of the main race leaders are done.

    Thrall, Baine, Lor'themar, Gallywix, and Calia all have new models.

    Anduin, Tyrande, Genn and Mekkatorque (His mech) all have new models.

    Maybe Velen needs a new model but he looks good enough for now.

    I think the ones that need models the most right now are Muradin and Rokhan. Both are very old. Like Wrath of the Lich King old.

    Gallywix is, however, no longer a leader. He is replaced by Gazlowe, who doesn't have a unique model. Velen got a new model in Legion, so he's fine.
    It's basically just Rokhan, Gazlowe and the two pandaren leaders - perhaps some of the allied race leaders such as Geya'rah or Moira. But yes, thankfully most leaders have a unique model now.

    Him and Gazlowe while they're at it

    Blizzard hates troll leaders. Im guessing he'll die in 2 expansions and wont get a cinematic nor a model
    This world don't give us nothing. It be our lot to suffer... and our duty to fight back.

    Right. But I wouldn't put Gazlowe, Pandaren or allied races above Rokhan. Darkspear Trolls are one of the OG 4 Horde races. I think Rokhan and the Dwarf leaders need them the most.

    Preferably all 3 Dwarves would get new models but I think Muradin is the priority if they can only have one. Muradin leads the Bronzebeard clan which is the main Dwarven clan in WoW. Moira would be great too but I don't think allied races should be taking priority over the OG races.

    But Thalyssra has generic nightborne model. I think she should get some unique piece of clothing like Elisande's crown.

    No! How dare you!? The only race Blizzard hates is night elves which is why they lost Teldrassil.

    Thalysra does have a unique outfit and a unique staff.

    WCIII:Refoged models look miles better than what we have in WoW. Granted they are smaller as well, so I don't know.

    To be fair, Rokhan's just making sure the Darkspears have a voice at the table; they're very obviously setting him up to eventually become the next Chieftain down the line, but for now he has no desire to step up and become Chieftain.

    Also, I think Rokhan's model in WC3:R is just a slightly-modified Witch Doctor hero unit, like it was back in the original WC3 (telling because both Cairne and Chen had unique models, making Rokhan feel somewhat like a generic fill-in compared to the rest of Rexxar's party).
    @BillTheButcher I recall them mentioning expanding the lore for Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne's campaigns to better-feature characters and factions that were prominent in the Third War in later stories (like the early days of the Scarlet Crusade/the last days of the Lordaeron branches of the Silver Hand) that weren't present in the original campaigns, to make the campaigns fit more in line with the lore as presented in Chronicle. Adding in models for these lore NPCs that weren't originally in WC3 seems to confirm this is still their plan.

    Ideally, we'd get new models for Rokhan, the Three Hammers, Aysa, and Ji all at the same time.

    Also, while we're at it, and sorry for a bit of off-topic, can we finally make Wandering Isle gear transmoggable?!

    Preferably all 3 Dwarves would get new models but I think Muradin is the priority if they can only have one. Muradin leads the Bronzebeard clan which is the main Dwarven clan in WoW. Moira would be great too but I don't think allied races should be taking priority over the OG races.
    Moira is the de facto head of the Council, between being the heir-apparent to the throne, the mother of the next direct heir (in a way, the Council are acting as regents until Dagren II comes of age and officially unites the Dark Iron and Bronzebeard clans into one), she is to date still the officially-crowned queen of Ironforge, and of the Council she's currently the most proactive in the Alliance itself. While Muradin is part of the old guard and certainly deserving of a unique model due to his longtime lore importance, if they had to pick only one it would likely be Moira who got the treatment given where she is in dwarf lore at the moment.
    Be seeing you guys on Bloodsail Buccaneers NA!

    It is generic in Suramar. There are many NPCs with exact same outfit and staff.

    Until you see them placed on a the actual maps of the game and it looks like every Unity asset flip on Steam. I don't know what when wrong in the art direction, but it undermines the work of every artist on the team.

    As for what could it mean for WoW. Nothing, really. Many major character have had shiny new designs in HotS and kept a 10 year old model in WoW. I don't see why it would be any different with Reforged, which has an artstyle even more detached from WoW than HotS.

    Nope, there are some that look similar but none that look the same.

    There are characters with identical models but different colour scheme.
