    is , I'd go play hello kitty adventures online or my little pony .



    Yes there have always been anthropomorphic characters but would you call a furbolg "cute" , what about the cobolds ? the gnolls? the satyrs , worgen or the dryads and the half stags ... They are all high fantasy but they are designed to look badass not fucking barbie doll levels of cute kiddie fantasy.

    How can a grown adult ever try to suggest another one to play these new expansion if when you show them the game they will see you surrounded by that stuff , i mean come on it would be embarassing as fuck


    This



    Is the same as the one above but it's not from damn pixieland and looks like it would eat the one above alive , again high fantasy but not hella gay at least.


    Now go and look at pandaren concept art from blizzard , they look badass not winnie-the-pooh-like as the final product that ended up in game .


    I don't believe in the myth of people younger than 15 playing this mmo today or starting to play it now because of the more light-hearted themes and looks...not in the slightest , so this stuff is targeted to weird grown ups.. and it must come from other weird grown ups working at blizz now
    So, there is a dormant fear.

    Do you have a fear of feeling demasculinized? Sorry, but this is a fantasy game, if you don't take from multiple shelves, it'll go faster down the drain.

    WoW always has. It's not all orcs and swords and edgy buildings and raaaaa typical MMO.

    When has WoW not had a cute element? I mean sure it doesn't have cat girls everywhere but come on. Also, death isn't always dark, brooding and edgy, death is also about rebirth and heaven, neither of which are what you seem to have been expecting a realm of death to be.

    Sigh .. again passive aggressive assumptions , no dummy I don't >>fear<< none of that I just dislike furry related stuff and I hate to see the devs add that to a game I've loved playing for 10+ years now . Shadowlands could have been an awesome dark themed expansion , yet even maldraxxus denizens look friendly goofy pals , after that we have the furries , then the dracula stereotype vampire guys and finally the righteous angels ofc .

    Kyrians could have been interesting but i find funny how something conceptualized like this


    ends up looking like this


    I don't know yet what it is but they certainly look kinda off to me.

    Edit : wait I think i got now what it makes them weird , they look more like humans than the actual warcraft humans just with a blue twist

    Well, the Kyrians WERE meant to look like the Spirit healers. Even so, you'll find that EVERY MMO CREATED would have a problem with you. Either a cute creation, or a more down low design or not all edgy or ferocious.

    It's simply the model quality of today. If these guys had appeared in Vanilla WoW, they'd look similar to owlbeasts:

    The panda... still looks like some fat fuck from kung fu panda...

    The fact that a person with a Brony profile picture is attempting to argue with me that cute can be deadly and intimidating still is the icing on the cake.
    Pandaren are from Warcraft 3. Chen helped found Durotar.

    And I'll argue the profile picture too. This used to be in my sig before they cut the original picture for being too big:

    Gnomes also come to mind. They were always supposed to be small and cute looking, they just upped the polygons. Most of the "cuteness" is the side effect of characters being able to have an expression besides built in stinkface.

    Speaking of Gnomes, Chromie. One of the "sweetest" characters in WoW, part of the game since Vanilla. Another example, Mylune, was introduced in Cata already. Less about looks with these characters, but the way they act.

    This is the true Faction War. Cute Vs. Grimdark WoW influences.

    And just like the in-game one I'm fighting for both sides.

    My fluffy alpaca-loving vulpera would be BFFs with my forsaken DK edgelord, like Pixie and Brutus.

    Why do people always offer the same response when someone points out a trend of something becoming more so?

    "WoW is getting cuter"

    "WoW has always had cuteness though..."

    That's not what he's saying. OP is arguing the level of cuteness has steadily risen and I agree with that.

    Just because WoW always had elements that could be considered cutesy doesn't discount his observation. Over the years those elements have grown large in number and more prominent in visibility.

These're just plush toys based on their appearance, unlike picture in your message. So, I'm looking at this picture and see relevant art, and then I look at picture (on right part) where friend criticized new one... and I completely agree with all that statements. It looks unnatural, emphasized silly. By the way, color scheme for "abomination-like" here is much sane, not so wrong one, like they made for its standard models (since original pale pink, almost yellowish was ideal solution there, but it turned into bright stupid colorful ugliness, although there are much less claims to model itself, still don’t understand why cutting knife couldn't be made more sharp bladed at the end, not hammer-like, and "sticking-out-insides" less fat, it turned out not guts, but some kind of hoses (but this, at least, I can considering kind of sane, acceptable))... so extra "high-quality" details spoiled whole art style of the game.

    ps. *once again starts to wince looking at new gnome picture* just disgusting *spits, gets up and leaves*
