    Doesn't sound very revenue producing.

    Looking at it now, I think that architecture is also familiar. It almost looks like a mix of Bastion and Legion's Broken Isles architecture. The orange-and-ivory look is familiar, but I can't put my finger on it. I am absolutely certain I ahve seen something like that before, down to the orange highlights and even the spines.

    To be fair hybrid specs where sort of an interesting thing. Frostfire spec for mages in early wrath for instance

    It's a good model edit for sure, props to whoever made it, but it's not real. I refuse to believe it.
    Doesn't look any cheaper than any other WoW race to me.

    Racials. Mandatory transformation in combat a la Worgen.

    But why does it use existing skeleton/animation? I thought all new races (not allied races) use unique and new skeleton.

    They are evoking the power of the dragons/dragonflights. I think people read way too hard into the fact that "evocation" is a magey-arcane sort of thing in wow and D&D and forget that "evoke" is just its own word. Most of the Evoker NPCs in the game are evoking strange magic (many of the drust caster NPCs are Evokers). I think they wanted something short and punchy, that was clearly a caster. So they opted not to go the dragon<thing> route and instead establish a new class identity in the vein of mage or warlock.

    That's wholly feasible. I was talking about that as a potential problem with a Drakonid race, so it could be their solution to that.

    It's typical mmo-c circlejerk where no possible middle ground can exist.

    No simple "i don't like it" or "this just isn't my thing" but a whole lot of "this it the worst thing to have ever been created by mankind, it's blasphemy against the gods and i will take it personally"

    That's also fairly curious. I believe someone pointed out they are using the Draenei female animations. It could just be a placeholder, though, like Zandalari using Night Elf animations in early BfA builds before getting their own.

    PTR build just updated.

    https://twitter.com/MrGMYT/status/1516187682497564680

    After a long hiatus a brand new 9.2.5 PTR build has emerged

    I really don't understand the hate. I think they look good. If they are fake, they convinced me more than any fake has done. So that is also fun. Not sure why folks are still playing wow if this doesn't look good to you. It seems to match to me. Maybe we look at different things. But no need for anyone to actually play the race if you don't want to. Always more content than just a new race.

    That is a good point. Maybe it's an early build, or maybe Blizzard decided to put more art assets into the new class?

    It's the Male Incubus I think, if we're getting REALLY specific. Because it has the tail animations too.

    I don't think those are meant to be nipples, I think that's just a texture error of some kind that put that there. If it's covered in scales, I highly doubt it would be meant to have those. It actually does seem easy to imagine those might've been model edits from some Scalie website, though, which actually may explain the very Scalie-esque facial shape.

    Other new races had new rigs (even some of the allied races!). This one is just a demon hunter with scales and the current player models.
    That SCREAMS cheap.
