    Well, they did just randomly stop adding them for some reason as the expansion started.

    Probably not going to happen, but I would love if you got more options for different sets of voicelines and such. And while humans didn't get nothing in SL, I do still hold out hope for the KT and lanky version to be available to both regular and KT humans in addition to the aforementioned swappable voicelines.while i am not hugely into RP, I would love if my character could have the Kul Tiran voicelines he is supposed to have without needing to swap the entire character to KT as well.

    It could be pretty interesting to have the Shadowlands representatives be war hawks, because they need more souls and anima for their "homelands".

    There are some pretty big ID jumps in the character customization database tables that imply there's likely a lot of customization not currently released that was worked on before/at the same time as the customization for 9.1.5/9.2.0, so we might be seeing some of that in 10.0.
    Did anything change with those in 9.2.5? I thought for sure we'd get more AR stuff there but maybe they are waiting to reveal it before putting it on PTR.

    Is Ardenweald the zone with the least amount of souls from previous Azeroth adventurers we know of? I kind of remember least notable ones from there.

    Could be related to Elune saying she sent the Nelf souls to her sister, meaning she can usually take the souls for herself and they don't go to the shadowlands

    Hopium overdrive for Ogres, even if they use the Kul Tiran skeletons.

    Please

    And is that boobplate on the top middle? There's our female. Notice too how she(?) doesn't have beard tentacles like the others.

    Given the implication that the Whisps are dead Night Elves...

    I think it's mostly because a lot of them turn into animals so we can't confirm if they are Azeroth races or not.

    Technically the least amount is from Bastion because we only meet Uther and that Highmountain warbrave.

    Hell, I'd be fine if they use that skeleton if it means looking closer to Rexxar, who uses it as well, since I don't know if they'll drop actual Mok'nathal. He still is one of the best looking named characters out there.

    As it is, the male Kul Tiran animations are exceptional minus their dance - the big problem is that 95% of the armor in the game ends up a stretched and warbled texture thanks to it meeting their belly. WoW armor just wasn't made for that kind of geometry.

    It would mean they would be an Allied Race if they use the existing model rig, which I hope not. A brand new race with new starting zone would be cool and refreshing.
    Love the female version (It's from Official Hearthstone). I can imagine so many cool customization options!

    If it uses different animations from Kul Tiran, has a starting zone, has a bazillion customizations etc I don't think anyone will call it an AR. Just means that the starting template for their body was Kul Tiran/Rexxar.

    Cool to see an official female Drakonid as I think that puts them ahead of Dragonmen and Dragonkin, neither of which have women in game or in HS AFAIK. The same applies to many many requested races (even Sethrak/Jinyu unfortunately lack a female model despite there being women in Vol'dun/Nazjatar).

    Nope, no customization changes whatsoever in 9.2.5.

    I agree! But I don't think it's necessary, Ogres use the same animations as moonkins so they don't even have to create them from scratch.

    Yeah, especially with wisps being a thing she definitely can directly influence the cycle to some capacity.

    Perhaps Teldrassils massive influx of souls was just too many for her handle and she couldn't keep them from crossing the veil, so she (tried to) send them to Ardenweald instead.

    Ogres in Exiles Reach, which is supposed to be Evergreen, use the WoD model and rig. I can't see those models being changed if they were included in the first round of post-BFA evergreen content for WoW.

    Hope this is because they are hiding them and not because we have to wait a year for them.

    She makes it pretty clear that she was deliberately sending them to Ardenweald and didn't have to because her sister asked for aid. She just had no idea what was actually happening in the Shadowlands, so it went awry.

    I think thats the case and it shouldn't be suprising. Ardenweald is mostly reserved for nature spirits, gods and halfgods that get reborn and return to their world eventually. People like the nightelfs that are very nature alligned should end up there as well, but the most people we meet are the neither of them.
    We meet a lof of loa for example.

    I don't know if elune can bypass the arbiter or if she knew the nightelfs would end up in ardenweald naturally. The ysera cinematic gives me personally the impression she can send souls directly to ardenweald but who knows...

    9.1 makes it pretty clear she can bypass the Arbiter due to her link with the Winter Queen: after that quest, Primus confirms the two sisters connect the "Lifelands" and the Shadowlands in a special way.

    If Arbiter was awake they likely would've gone to Ardenweald as natural spirits go there anyway. If Arbiter was asleep they would've went to the Maw. We don't know how Wisps work (not even the Brokers do) so unsure as to what would've happened if Elune made them into wisps into of sending them to SL... but to her it was more important to send them to help Ardenweald than it was to rezz them back into being ghost orb warriors. (Even though some of them do that in the Battle for Teldrassil)
