    No albinos with "black" genes I guess.
    I found the decision pretty lame too, and I'm incredibly disappointed with only specific "black or asian faces" (Idk what to call it) having scars.
    They better add that as a new feature in the future.

    They should have added different skin tones yes, but not towards introducing black humans into wow, that was completely out of control and will only have bad consequences. It is racist as it considers them more important than other races.

    Let wow be wow... Not Earth.
    Not only that, but orcs were always supposed to be the "black people" of WoW.

    No, you're talking about culture, not appearance. This shit is completely separated in a universe without our planet's history, stop it.

    Let's keep this confined to the game system and not real-world racial or identity politics, this is the only warning this thread will receive in this vein.

    It's a bit of a bummer. That being said, some of the comments on this thread are hilarious.

    If you reply to me with a full essay I'm probably not going to bother reading it, sorry.

    Yeah I have no clue why scars weren't a separate layer at least. It's really annoying how certain features are all tied to certain skin tones etc - I thought the whole point of the revamp was to get away from that kind of crap?

    Also pretty sure the white faces not being able to have scars IS a bug, so the idea that this is finished seems a bit dubious.
    No, they are just locked to specific faces which happen to be asian or black faces. Each 'ethnicity' gets 12 faces. Seems to be working as intended.

    I mean it is another layer for Night Elves. But most of the human options are unfinished anyways. Just compare the new male haircuts to the older ones. The new ones don't even have a hairline texture. They look like wigs.

    And don't even get me started on DK faces. They literally changed all of them.

    I thought orcs were supposed to be 1945 germans, with all the superior race stuff

    I am offended that they haven't got a skin tone to represent people with jaundice.

    They should lock Tauren to Native Americans players only

    They should lock Trolls to Jamaican players only

    They should lock Pandas to Asian players only

    See where this is going? Assigning certain features to certain 'ethnicities' is such a bullshit move. Diversity for diversity sake is a terrible idea when they only want you to have the diversity they approve

    Yeah, I logged in today on my female human, tried my new options at the barber shop and left looking the same. I had no new options besides eye colors and some very 2004 looking hair styles. Like cmon Blizz. Is making faces for every skin color really that hard? And do our new hair styles HAVE to look like they have been imported from Sims 1? It's 2020. Round hair should be common by now.

    Face shape was one thing, but no scars? That is pretty silly. I get some, like how my goblin having separate earring/ear options only goes so far since the earrings are made to fit a certain ear shape.

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

    Weirdly enough, all three face shape options are available on any face.

    I found a face and hair I really love for my worgen's human form. Jewelry that was pretty cool. I don't see a problem with the ethnic options and there's plenty of customization now. Maybe you're looking at it with a narrow mind?

    Wanting to make white characters with black features is such a funny thing to complain about.

    Hahahahaha

    I find it weird and inconsistent that some races have a special scar-option and others have it baked into the faces..
