    Yet you typed this;

    This doesn't do any justice to powerful almighty Dragons of Azeroth. Nothing so far make sense, and since developers are trans people, this is just that, plain attempt to desensitize Wow's playerbase.
    You seriously think any of that tripe you posted is a real issue?

    Is Samwise even part of WoW team these days?

    There is no surprise that a professional of his level understands how artstyle works.
    Good to know. The man gets it.

    Real issues like having a trans person as part of their design team?

    Pretty sure you're the one casting the line here.

    Well to be fair I don't think they were going for a pure dragon design with these guys. But they were trying to mimic Maloriak since he is one of them, I think. If that's the case then they did pretty well. I still prefer something a little beefier though but it's hard to judge their scale, no pun intended, to the rest of the world from what I have seen.

    The last project I remember him having worked more extensively on was Heroes of the Storm back in the day. He's still at the company last I checked. If he was a part of the WoW team I doubt he would have let these designs go through.

    Maloriak is a human fused with dragonspawn. Soythyr is a chihuahua fused with spider lizard.

    Sad news for WoW. Things won't get better until artist follow the og style instead of twisting it.

    I chose indifferent. In theory, both are cool ideas, but what we've been shown for Dracthyr looks nothing like I would picture a draconic race, and Evoker is seriously missing the mark not having a tank spec. Having said all that I haven't been subbed for a year or so and I don't exactly plan on subbing in the future. If they give me closed beta or free week of playtime or w/e, I might take a trip down memory lane and try out new stuff as well, but otherwise I've moved on.

    Blizzard dropped the ball IMHO for a race that could be both factions. We already have demon hunters too that are tied to only two races. Less choice lowers player agency and choice which is always a bad thing.

    We don't know enough of them atm for me to properly judge them. What we have seen sofar appearance wise looked pretty lame though.

    We get it, you can't get your rocks off to a dragon unless it's a mountain of muscles...doesn't mean everyone is like you, I'm sure there is plenty of what you're looking for on rule 34

    I would feel a lot better about the race even if they just went the easy route and added an option to bulk them up a little like this.



    Because the designs they’ve shown don’t do a good job presenting a “perfect draconic humanoid soldier” as they’re described to be.

    But Thunderbrush’s edits would be ideal as an option in my mind, and I’d see most Dracthyr players picking something like that.

    This comment speaks more about you than me. Disgusting.

    For now, I'm not a big fan of drakthyrs dragon form appearance but I don't care about them not showing transmog. The human visage is quite nice and the class is interesting, I'm eagerly waiting for more in-depth information about them
