It's happening, there's no way the old races can do any kung-fu moves, and they all get to be monks next x-pac. So be ready, it's comming!!!!!!!


You maybe on to something here, you have a good point.
It's not like they said they were not going to do something, then do it, ie. (flying in Azeroth, remember that?)

Interesting theory, and they mentioned the pandaren having far more animation bones than the old races, too...

Hrm, I can only hope you're right.

I'm fine with it. I think Dwarves already look pretty cool, but I definitely wouldn't mind a more polygons.
From a modeling perspective, the higher polygon count would definitely help. The textures would have to be improved, though. Low res textures on a high poly model look awkward.

Give people the option to choose old or new models.

WOW PROBLEM SOLVED! DERP
This assumes that both models would be radically different. That's a whole other topic altogether.

I'm tired of seeing my spine sticking through my cloak for some ungodly reason, and all my epic armor looking like I just crawled out of Deathknell. >..>

It wont ever change, though.
I seriously hope they do update the vanilla models. I really can't bring myself to play any races from vanilla anymore, they just look like crap. D8 So blocky and low-res.

Does this include the 'new' races? Most specifically, redoing female worgen?


Not only this, but also Humans and Orcs specifically need major revamps.

Humans look like the Southpark equivalent of candians; flapping open jaws with now teeth.

It's like being attached to old socks. It's nostalgia and fond memories. Yet you don't need to keep those old socks to retain those feelings and memories. Once you get rid of the socks and put on new ones you realize what you were missing. The new socks in no way shape or form take away from the old socks.


Old socks are gross...just like old character models! Fix please!

Updates to the old race models should be done ASAP. It should be at the top of Blizz's "to do" list. Now that I've seen Thralls new model, I can only imagine how awesome the new models would look like.

1.- watch the Pandaren monk gameplay video.
2.- Imagine a Tauren or undead doing those moves
3.- realize that Blizzard has to redo all skeletons for vanilla races or this ain't gonna work at all
4.- be happy for new models!! <3

I'm fairly certain humans could use an update. Also, BEs look downright wussy compared to their tree-hugging, NE counterparts.

This is what I am saying, we are the playerbase we make the game world come alive, we are the ones you should be more concerned about how we look. Not some npc people see off and on, but the players that look at each other on a constant basis. Without us there is no wow, and looking like a blob pixelated mess is not going to keep going over well, esp when you have shown us what the world of warcraft can look like.

All the wonderful models you put in for npcs that have no feelings or care about what they look like, and you constantly deny the playerbase..that actually cares that they look bad ..the same treatment as you give the npcs.

No more excuses, there are no excuses for the 8 year long old model types that should have been updated in TBC cata at the latest. Dont let this issue die folks, blizz makes a wonderful game, but the player characters need to come up to par with the rest of the environment.
