    Draenei - not so much.

    They changed her outfit to a boring ass burqa to avert that pesky male gaze and get those sweet ESG bucks from Blackrock and Vanguard.

    Like said by many before, troll needs the scarf redone. Otherwise its fine imo.

    Draenei female should be more like the artwork that inspired it and the helmet looks abit weird i think.

    I was actually expecting these two:



    But Instead we got a weird looking transmog that doesn't even feel like their racial. Can you guys please, beg Blizzard to NOT release this heritage and rework it?. I mean, if no one helps, they will keep this as our favorite race (I like both races) with such an ugly heritage.

    They just made it the same as the man's outfit? Like, the helmet and shoulders are bad, yeah, but its clearly based on the other side of the concept art

    They've been standardising the two to wear the same thing recently anyway, its why you can have a KT male wear a bikini or put some shorts on your orc lady

    My issue with the Draenei heritage armor is not the design, but the coloring and texturing. It is too oversaturated and looks like it's from a cartoon game like Wildstar, not from Warcraft.

    I think design is all over the place. They tried to cram too many things at once and and it doesn't look imo cohesive.But alas the patch goes live at may 16, so I highly doubt they'd do anything of essence.
    Ironically troll heritage got bigger response as everyone is pointing out that headpiece is ridiculous. So I hope against all hope that they will address at least that thing.
    But I'm not holding my breath.

    Drenei heritage armor is just a damn shame. There are green sets that are more aesthetically thought out. It looks AI generated. Troll one is fine. Troll armor is not supposed to be ornate.

    ...man, that Draney set is a shame tho

    2006 concept art not thought out enough?

    The new heritage armor does not catch the epicness of 2006 concept art whatsoever.

    The quests were really good lore-wise n stuff...but my god how insulting with all the emotions in the Draenei quests bringing everyone together n you are handed shitty green xmog sets...

    I see some say "I like 'em!" but you are ignoring that other races had more effort and thought put into theirs.

    I'll say even first tier sets for next expansion look off...only the Arathi ones do look really good...

    Looking back at the other sets, if the draenei set looks like green gear, then the lightforged looks like blue gear...its so forgettable you probably don't remember what it looks like, or if someone is using it, you wouldn't identify it as heritage armor but assume its some blue drop..

    The races that got good sets are







    This shouldn't be on my list, but my god those shoulders are really really good (I think its the back? So u can combine that with 'other' shoulders to get different effects that nobody else can, very unique)...on the other hand the Tauren set is really good but the shoulders are too small n look wimpy..


    The best by far, it is flawless in every part and detail


    - - - Updated - - -

    the blue-geared lightforged ones. Admit you forgot what it looked like!


    tauren, that eagle shoulderpad should be a lot bigger, feathers larger too..


    As for orcs n humans, i guess they are ok, look like glorified guards...

    The worgen, well, they have a nice hat!

    Sorry, but the Draenei set is amazing! And it looks even better in game than it did in screenshots. Perhaps that's because the blue/purple version looks better than the purple/red version. The shoulders and gauntlets that weren't even in the concept art are easily the coolest parts of the set too!

    I don't get the hate for it. I think some people just like to shit on things to shit on things. You do know that the Draenei =/= The Army of the Light, right? If you wanted the paladin Draenei aesthetic, go roll a Lightforged.

    The blizzard devs of 2024 would never show a naked belly on a female character, i am still surprised that people dont understand what kind of people are now making wow they are totally different from the people that made those art styles from TBC era.

    Because slut-mogs are stupid? And especially on something like heritage armor.

    Are you saying that the female on concept art looked slutty?

    And devs at the times are releasing revealing armor sets like bloodhunter one.
    And tauren in their heritage armor for trousers literally just wear underwear.

    Do you think the Void Elf and Nightborne heritage armors are stupid?

    They look really generic. Not awful, but not very interesting or elaborate.

    Anything that has too much skin showing in something that is supposed to resemble armor is stupid, especially if it is female only. Its just dumb.

    The entire Male character looks strong and imposing and is wearing what is looking like plate armor while the female character is going into battle in a bikini is very much 2007.

    Its slut-mog, correct me if im wrong, but i thought that was what skimpy revealing female body armor was referred to in this game. Refer to my answer above to what i think of it.

    However, its a bit different if its unisex and especially with races such as Tauren that have lore reasons for not needing that much armor.

    Well the Void Elf Heritage armor isn't that so... Also notice how the males ain't wearing a bra like they are for the TWW Warlock set.



    This has more style than most armor sets in game.

    LOL this is one the funniest attempted-and-failed insults I've ever read.

    A cartoon game like WildStar? My man, WoW is a "cartoon game". It got zinged for it extensively before launch and even after it came out. Pretending it isn't is just ridiculous shenanigans. Also, WoW is absolutely as saturated as WildStar ever was. The main artistic difference between the too is that WoW is less HORNY than WildStar, because my god WildStar was pretty horny.

    Sure they will, just not ONLY on a female character:

    https://www.wowhead.com/news/updated...ow-with-339909

    Plus pretty much all Demon Hunter armour. Or a number of cosmetic sets, like Bloodhunter.

    There are two differences, then from now, I think they were 100% done by before Cataclysm:

    1) Hugely sexualized armour - this was basically Vanilla-only, as anyone attempting to slutmog knows. It didn't even make it into TBC. Bloodhunter is the closest, but it's a very specific look and the same on both genders (also still less sexualized than say, the Cenarion Thicket Leg plates).

    2) Armour which showed significantly more skin on female characters than males. I can think of a handful of plate pieces in WotLK like that, but I can't think of anything after that. There might be examples, but not many, I suspect.

    As for the general complaint, I think 95% of people complaining haven't actually got the armour in-game or looked at it in-game. The Draenei stuff actually looks pretty awesome in-game because of the way it glows, and it also mogs really well with a lot of other gear.

    Even in 2007, we actually thought it was very 1987, because that was the last time most fantasy art thought that was a cool approach. If you look at Western MMORPGs prior to WoW most of them don't have "chainmail bikini"-type armour. And WoW ditched them immediately - they didn't make it to TBC. TBC and WotLK had some slightly more revealing armour for female characters, but none of the "ass out" or extremely revealing armour of Vanilla. It was more along crop-top/athletic-wear lines.

    It 100% is what people call that, including the people who do it lol. Anyone trying to call you out on using the term is either trolling, because they know what you meant and that you used it right, or is themselves pretty ignorant.
