    What body type will you choose when theyre inevitably added?

    Blizz said theyre going all out with the Dracthyr in a similar way that Pandaren were the next step up above the other races until they were updated. Implying that old races are going to get more customization, and body types are presumably one of those options. I'm asssuming theyre only going to do simple scaling like the Dracthyr got, but obviously cooler stuff like hunched troll women and hell, even skeletal undead are actual possibilities now.

    But what body type would you be most excited about? Alpha-styled skinny Blood Elves? Orc women that look like a proper Hulk? Thicc Draenei women? Skinny humans? Fat goblins?

    We'll have to see what their efforts bare out; making 'additional body shapes' isn't exactly as simple as one might think, especially with Blizzard adding more and more armor pieces that have additional 3D components.

    In short, if you "bulk up" (or slim down) characters the 2-dimensional textures (the "skin," if you will) will either have to be stretched or compressed, or be given an entirely new set of skinned textures, to apply to the new body shapes. Moreover, each body variant will have to be checked that the 3D components being added don't clip; a belt with additional pieces that fit fine on the standard human model might not fit on the bulkier human, or might float awkwardly on the skinny human.

    They still haven't made good on giving every race heritage armor. Hell, they still haven't given hunters quivers. So mark me as skeptical for now.

    How about just giving almost all races the option for three?

    Skinny, Normal, Chubby/fat.

    My main is a Human Paladin and he will keep his current heroic proportions because he is a character that is constantly in melee while wearing heavy armor so it very much makes sense?

    I would like to see more chubby/plump/obese/thicc models. And they should just look plump/obese/chubby/thicc and not like super bulky mascular. Some skinny models would also be great. It just looks stupid when u play an human/orc warlock and look like someome who is spending his whole time in the gym.

    I doubt that is coming anywhere in the next 5 years.

    Any additions to the character customization seem to be more work for them than a complete expansion for some reason.

    If this will ever come i want a skinny orc. Like Guldan in his lore video.
    Also skinny human. Without the undead hunchback.
    A fat draenei male/female would also be fun. Like a lazy priest who uses levitation to get something from the kitchen.
    Skinny anything really. Doesn't make sense for me that a dwarf priest is STACKED like a motherf'ing tauren warrior.

    Yeah, that should come with passive ability to die of heart attack during any point of the game. Even walking.

    Yeah, or maybe a chubby Goblin to look like Galliwyx, or a chubby Nightborne like that one Hearthstone character?

    Can we get tall humans a la vrykul?
    You know, anything resembling how i actually look since even drag queens get representation nowadays.

    Always funny how people try to gloss over that sorta discrimination when literally nothing is built to proper size apart from the stuff for mr. most mediocre medium mcstandardguy.
    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Furthermore, I consider that Carthage Slam must be destroyed.

    There are many asking for the body type of the HS character, and a few for Gallywix's, heh. As for human male, they already have one.

    I find the word "inevitably" amusing.

    Your passive-aggressive body shaming is disgusting and not funny at all.
