Race Change?

Is it worth it for a race change to a belf? I got a little bit bored, and some forumites suggest that I maybe bored of the human warrior animation. I also personally felt bored about it, and thinking on a race change. The only race I think I'm liking now are belves, but is it worth it to change both the race and faction? I am quite attached to my guild, and I quite like the look of SW, with its beautiful nature and scenery. People also often like to tease about male belfs. Would all of them be worth it for the nice looking battle animation and look of belfs? And would I have to pay twice, changing the race and faction for my char.? And how would I know how I'll look like as a blood elf? (Like if I will prefer the appearance selection or not) Thx alot! :D

A faction change comes with a race change. Race change is for when you want to stay with the same faction but a different race (Human to Dwarf for example).

The male human warrior animations are probably the most generic and bland of all the combat animations in the game. Even the human female animations for the warrior have a slight flourish to them that the male ones don't have.

Not sure, as I've never done a race/faction change myself. And don't worry about the jokes and what-not. It's just because the male blood-elves are more of a stereotypical fantasy elf/fay character than any of the other elf types in WoW (ie, NOT He-Man macho).

If you're really liking the humans and the alliance side, perhaps you could do the appearance change and switch your character to a female human?

In-game character gender is not really an indicator of player gender as many players have characters of both genders, and a lot of guys are female-character heavy (with the logic that if they're going to spend a lot of time staring at a rear-end, it might as well be female).

I paid to faction change my shaman from a troll to a dwarf a while back. Basically when you first log in after the faction change goes through you get sent to a screen like the character creation screen where you recustomize your character as the new race. You get the choose all the visual customization options for the race-changed character the same as you would if you were making a new toon from scratch.

Another option is to just go make one and play it for a few levels.

As far as being bored, do you have any alts?

So play a human. Some people like them, others don't. I'm in the group that thinks they look horrendously ugly, personally, but that's why I don't play them :P

This. You have up to 50 character slots. Make some new characters in the race/class combinations you've been thinking about and try them out. You'll see most of their animations in the first 5 levels.
