    Honestly, I'm still just kind of stunned HOW goofy the Dracthyr look in-game. I feel like we really need a "Male" body-type, and also the ability to wear ACTUAL armor and full transmogs (save for cloaks, I can understand those not being allowed).

    I would recommend just rolling a different race and ignore the Dracthyr altogether. Leave the race to the players who are perfectly okay with how they look.

    Sadly people will just keep going on about it and not get over it,

    Can't say this race can become anything more than an alt, I mean, there is no transmogs to gather for it, so what is the point?

    They do my mate. They look like some skink lizardboys but definitely not dragons.

    It looks pretty much exactly like what I was expecting that others wanted out of the dracthyr, the macho beeftank. Which is to say that it's exactly what I was expecting would be not for me, and what makes me relieved that the current iteration of dracthyr are a bit closer to what I could see myself playing and enjoying.

    What that model definitely does get right for me, though, is the head and face. They're very, perfectly draconic. If dracthyr had a little more options like that, touching more on the draconic portion of them and a little less on the portion of whatever else that makes them up, they'd be absolutely golden, far as I'm concerned.
    It's fucking amazing!

    Honestly, looking at how much customization is going into the "Dragonriding mounts"... I can't but feel like, THOSE should have been the "Dracthyr". Scaled-down in size, obviously, but that honestly just seems SO MUCH MORE exciting.

    Furthermore, there would be absolutely zero question about "why can only Dracthyr be Evokers", because they'd be actual full-blown (albeit smaller) dragons.

    And then just open up with "Visage" form to any race, since you would only really use that form for non-combat functions.

    Wait, this thread is still going on? I thought the fourth body type would be enough as it's already far too muscly for my taste oO.

    Holy Moly ...

    Sadly so, people will think they know better than the official Blizz team.

    My issue is the snouts. I found maybe 3-4 snouts that work for me. The rest are just not draconic enough? More snake or gecko. Their jaws are a bit narrow.

    But you don't have to like every snout? If you already found 3-4, shouldn't that be enough? I actually prefer the snake or gecko looks for them!

    Well cool but they are supposed to be draconic so no idea why not even a majority of them look draconic.

    "Draconic" is too relative a term. What does draconic mean for you all? Genuinely curious.

    It means this



    It also means this



    Look at dragon models in wow. They have underbites, tendrils, crocodile teeth and all that good shit. Fuckthyr don't have even one of those features available.

    I don't really hold the opinion of someone who has been so needlessly caustic as you have in high esteem.

    Your opinion of me doesn't change what draconic means in the context of wow.

    I really just don't understand why they make their bodies SO human-looking. They lack that "Warcraft" style, like something like the Worgen, which are humanoid but still discernibly "not human". Take the head and feet away, though, and the Dracthyr look eerily "human".

    Moreover, I feel like pull yet another race out of thin air just seems unnecessary and unbelievable. The story doesn't even line-up with Neltharion creating them before being corrupted, and then failing OVER AND OVER AGAIN to "merge the powers of the five flights". Everything about the Dracthyr just seems... poorly thought-out.

    But visually, yeah, I feel like they look awful. Now the OPTIONS they have are really impressive; I love the breadth of scale colors they have to choose from, and the variety of "accent" colors and patterns. But just being brutally honest, I think the Dracthyr themselves look like shit, and I find it deeply concerning that Blizzard not only greenlit the design in the first place, but are still marching forward with it, even after what seemed like pretty universal feedback when they were revealed.

    The shame is, I actually think the idea of a "playable Dragon" sounds super fucking cool, and in terms of GAMEPLAY, I actually think they look interesting. But they just look really, really stupid.

    Glad I'm not the only one who felt this way. Initially it felt so bizzare, I thought Blizzard was jumping into that weird 'realistic bodies in gaming' bandwagon that's been plaguing the industry. Warcraft models have always been strongly exaggerated and I really wish for them to stay that way. Fortunately the bigger body sizes that were added in alpha did alleviate the issue somewhat.

    Uh no. If they went that route they’d be the least played class in the game. People talk crap about skinny dragons, but slim races are the top picked races in the game. Meanwhile, big bulky races are the least picked.

    Slim races are not the top picked races in the game; the attractive races are the top picked races in the game. Otherwise, fem orcs and fem trolls would be higher up on population.
