    Just dropping by to give my two cents on the recent blog post on Dracthyr customization.

    - It's a good start, but it's not enough. They're just adding muscle mass on top of the current frame, which doesn't change the silhouette all that much when viewed from a distance (especially when wearing "armor"). It's a good surface detail, but it's not changing the model in a meaningful way. Their frames remain small with narrow shoulders. This is not bulk.
    - They need to make their heads bigger and lower their necks because quite frankly the tiny-faced lizards look ridiculous. Especially when you use the customization options that increase muscle mass.
    - Giving us pre-designed armor sets that only Dracthyr can wear is still extremely disappointing and I'm not quite sure who's getting excited about this. If you're going to give me a new race, I expect to be able to wear my armor while playing said new race. Worgen can wear armor, so why can't Dracthyr? There's no excuse besides laziness and/or poor direction from the devs.
    - Still waiting on info for more humanoid form options.

    Since this thread is about dracthyr appearance I'll talk about this in here.

    Now that alpha is out and it is possible to see how armor actually looks like, I feel rather disapointed. You can't even mount in dracthyr form.

    The armor you can put on in character creation (and I assume can change in barber) is very limited compared to actual selection of armors. I have seen some screenshots of these character creation armors and only one of them looks good. Basically it seems to me that this single armor is the only good set evokers can wear. That is unless the dragonflight content offers extra armors you can select or wear that looks good. It is still extremely limited.

    Dracthyr looked fine enough and seems fine otherwise, but to basically separate it from the ability to transmog properly seems like big mistake.

    I hope this will be fixed somehow.

    I do hope that they let the tier sets be visible in some way.
    Be it through barber shop options that unlock when you get the gear or through transmog… but I just do hope that’s not the only armor we’ll ever see on our Dracthyr.

    I could see the Visage model getting expanded in the future. Probably a few races at a time over the course of a few expansions.

    You know – now it's struck my fancy – that the Drakthyr could've also been made more interesting if they played up the mutated element of them. A body horror-based race would surely be something new that hasn't really been added since the Forsaken.



    This particular design is fairly hideous, but it's reflective of a race in early development for Cataclysm (note that it could have been this rather ugly and generic thing, but I digress) that probably informed the Drakthyr. I find them to be a much cooler race because it plays up the element that they are an artificial race—they don't need to be ugly, but the artificiality could've been played up—give them an affinity for alchemy, for instance! They are already characterized as "curious", and that could've been played up. In this regard, they wouldn't even need to be strictly deformed, but it could've drawn the artificiality more into play.

    If they were to go for the full body horror idea, like I proposed earlier, that could've also brought into play all sorts of unique abilities that wouldn't even need to be strictly Dragon-focused—alchemical or mutative in nature.

    This is very likely impossible—they're designed like NPC models, I think, so they're likely not even rigged for real armor.

    One thing that I do like about this is it makes races like, say, Nerubians easier to design. While it makes for a disappointing race now, it may open the door for cool and new possibilities.

    They should be changed.
    Actually make a dragonrace and get lost with the whole humanoid form and copy paste other races.

    Base model should be: (an actually dragon human mix)


    And when they transform they should actually become a dragon like:

    But then people would be happy, blizz devs nowdays not interested in that kind of thing, their new thing is "DRAMA" to make people whine,cry, and use Tvatter.

    I don't get it. Why would anyone want a big bulky dragon when they're gonna be healing with their dream powers?

    Honestly, I wouldn't...
    First one doesn't look like a dragon to me. To human like proportions and more of a turtle face.
    Never liked the bottom dragons in WoW. It's why I never use dragon mounts, the animations are wack and fighting as one of those would be kind of meh...

    I completely agree with most of the points here. The current Dracthyr is quite underwhelming and goofy looking. Makes me wonder why they wanted to reinvent the wheel, when updated models of the dragon aspects, which in my opinion look damn near perfection, exist in the game. If you've seen any alpha footage, the 'actual' NPC dracthyrs also look incredible - and when Blizzard didn't want us to use transmog on our playable Dracthyrs, couldn't they just have given us a model closer to that of the NPCs, which actually look more draconic than our toy-store version?

    Ponder, ponder.

    I've been diving into the Dracthyr info since I have a bit of time and I have to echo what a lot of people have been saying: I want bulkier and different body options. Emphasis on options - which other people still apparently are happy to dismiss because having options is a bad thing? I think some of that just comes from a fear that they'll have to see the options used on other people's characters but... I could be wrong, if there's some other reason for opposing options.

    Anyway.

    Yes, I want a bulkier option. I understand people who are tired of and want a not-muscle race option. I’m not, heh. The fact they have given options here, I have to wonder who thought “slightly more slender” and “slightly bulkier” would go over well with the general populous.

    A better philosophy (in my opinion) would have been, “We’re going to give people options, and we know some will want muscle mass and others will want lithe. So let’s give them both, with a spectrum in between.”

    I guarantee you, if they had gone in with and designed around that, you would not hear nearly so many dissenting opinions. Yes, you’d still have the outlier who wants to take it further, and maybe there would still be tweaks to be made, but far more of the player base would have been fine with them, because the majority would have their personal tastes covered.

    The biggest put-down I've heard in response to having bulkier choices was "It doesn't make sense for a caster." And frankly I find that reason very wanting. Whether or not someone primarily uses magic has nothing to do with their personal exercise routine. Not all magic users are necessarily scrawny geeks in the same way that not all gamers hate the gym. If you're going to make a big deal about giving 'body options,' make sure they're actual body options that cover a larger span of your expected demographic's tastes.

    That and... would one really need to list every buff race that can also be casters? What doesn't make sense to me is limiting the options rather than providing more variety for the core and most visible trait that defines a character.

    And I absolutely adore those alternate race visage forms. I am all for those.

    No one wants their heads to look like traditional WoW dragon heads. They are atrocious.

    Left is traditional. Absolutely godawful. Right is modern, and way better, which is why the Dracthyr follow it more closely. Both are warcraft.



    At least play the game before making weird comments about the WarCraft aesthetic, because you just painted yourself as clueless in regards to the WoW aesthetics.
