    Vulpera animations

    Would've been nice to have at least some difference between male and female casting/attack animations for vulpera. I know it's using goblin skeleton, but for me animations are a big part of the game for me and to see them just use one animation for both genders feels... lazy

    Congrats, you now understand why they are called allied races and not just brand new races.

    Yeah basically this. They have some neat stuff with their racials, if I was horde I’d play one

    I'll take aesthetics over animation any day.

    I'm sorry but Allied Races are sadly designed as an option of choice to fluff up the other options, they aren't developed as a complete race.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    Are you planning to play both male and females? If not, then why does it matter that they share some animations?

    It's not a huge deal to me but the fact that they will just be using the goblin animations is a bit irritating. Hopefully they'll at least have different dances and other emotes.

    Your argument would make sense if Vulpera were based on another race already in the game.

    Even with Zandalari still being under "Troll" race they still received new animations.

    So did the Vulpera. Stealth, jump, dance, sleep - several animations are different, but similar to how the male Zandalari use the Night Elven skeleton, the vulpera uses the Goblin as a base.

    Only males. Zandalari females use the same animations than standard troll females. Yes, it's lazy.

    Don't try to shoehorn some lore/story points into a technical discussion, it just makes you lose credibility even faster.

    Vulpera got a bunch of new animations over goblins. You just don't like what they didn't change. Boohoo big time.
    Allied races are meant to be "lazy". That's why we got 8 races in one expac. This wouldn't be possible with full blown races.

    But you will disregard any of this anyways and cry about your furries being shit. Oh well.

    Everyone knows the only animation that matters is
    THE
    DANCE

    I take it back, BfA is not the lowest the games lore could have gone, this thread proves that.

    They have unique /sleep and /stand animations. Good enough for me.
    What I expect, not necessarily what I want, to happen within Battle for Azeroth:
    Zekhan to begin his hero's journey - Rexxar will die - Lightforged Forsaken Alliance - Saurfang will die - Vulpera Horde - Old Gods no earlier than final patch - Jaina and Sylvanas are NOT under Old God influence - Thrall will die - Sylvanas will kill Saurfang - Junker Gnomes Alliance - Jaina vs Thrall cinematic - Varian's "kindness" is repaid

    Zandalari no longer use night elf animations. They now use modified troll animations.

    Good!

    The skeleton is still a Night Elven one. Biggest clue? They don't sit like the other Trolls of Azeroth!

    Blood Elves were given to the Horde for no other reason than them needing a pretty race added to their ugly faction. Consider this penance for receiving a race that your faction will never deserve.
