    It seems like every race is getting about 3 new skins and we've seen that for all of them. I'm pretty much convinced that in terms of skins for orcs what we've seen is all we're getting.
    Me not that kind of Orc!

    Of course they are. This build dropped in a nice chunk of new customizations for several races (goblins, gnomes and dwarves) - just because we've seen more of the progress on humans, doesn't mean the progress on other races isn't there.

    Worgen and Tauren would like a word with you.

    Seems one of the biggest hurdles is there are two groups of orcs that are playable:

    1) Green skin OG orcs
    2) Mag'har Orcs

    Most variant orc skins wouldn't fit in with OG orcs just because they wouldn't be green. Most other skin variants wouldn't fit with Mag'har because of the whole Mag'har meaning un-corrupted.

    We all know, if Blizzard wants to do something, they will asspull and do it (Void Elves and Tauren Paladins for example).

    I could see the Mag'har wanting to align all of their orc clans, or atleast be allies. The shattered hand, the dragonmaw, those red guys in Outland, all of the different "corrupted" orc clans that we have defeated in the past, take whatever remains of them, "redeem" them (however Blizzard wants to do that) and then you can play whatever Orc variant you want and it would still technically be "Mag'har".

    I've always wanted Fel orcs to be playable, but I don't think they were included in the model update. Last time I ran Shattered Halls, I seem to remember them still looking like PS1 orcs.

    To be, Fel Orcs only make sense to add, if they make them be the Orc version of Demon Hunters. That training and tattoos could be a perfect tool for letting them tame their demonic rage, and make them viable for players. As well as for giving Demon Hunters to more races.

    In my ideal scenario, at some point we return to the Black Temple, to find that Akama has been using his former master's techniques to help Fel Orcs and Eredar find a new path. Giving us Eredar and Fel Orcs as new Demon Hunter options.

    But then you're stuck using a 1 handed weapon(2h titans grip) and a blade fist.

    I'd settle for that awesome Shattered Hand look.

    Totally this. They appear to be reading, since they have even asked for MORE feedback about customization options just a couple of weeks ago! (on EU forum at least)
