Soooo, i have an Undead Demonology Warlock, and i'm a girl. Probably just me being a girl... however i don't understand why the Metamorphosis is a giant, bulky man demon. i mean... come on, if i wanted a man demon i'd be a guy. but i'm a girl anndd i'm not particularly fond of this guy demon. it seems sexist. the Metamorphosis for girl Demonology Warlocks should be a girl demon. does anyone else agree? or is it just me?

@ Nephe: this is the warlock forum, now wander back to the Mage forums and QQ some more about the state of arc and multi-dotting.

Yes, and the thread was moved here from the Customer Support Forum after the post was made.

This has been talked about a bajillion times since Metamorphosis first came to us, so no, unlike Tigger, you're not the only one.

Devs have talked about a female demon form, but it's fairly low on their list of priorities. Just to put that into perspective, it took 8 years to get green fire.

I agree there should be one but the absence of such is hardly sexist. They just re-used a model they had sitting around and gussied it up a little. Blizzard might get around to making a female version but they're probably all doing dailies for mogu runes of disappointment.

If you look at ancient cultural lore from all around the world, most demos that are aggressive are always male. Female demons like succubus, nymphs, and the like use cunning and decit to ensare thier victims

In game, you are "hulking out" with a power surge to cause great amounts of damage. To me, making the demon male is appropriate maily because of the action that is doing(major DPS). If the Metamorphosis mechanic was different and was used in another fashion other than DPS, then I can see it being female. Thats my opinion though not necessarily correct.

Do demons even have gender? In mythology, demons generally don't have a gender at all. Even the succubus merely *gives the illusion* of being an attractive woman to ensnare people. But it's just that, illusion.

Yes, demons have a gender. Trust me, I married one.

I know some holy priest who can't stand becoming a female in ''spirit of redemption'' form.

I think it's awesome, a girl demon wouldn't look right and doesn't really fit into the lore.

This, also. Meta form seems neutral and genderless.

You don't become a man, it's not like you grow a !@#$%.

It is a gain and bulky thing because you are adding a significant amount of muscle to your form.

This has been brought up before, and after some looking, I was able to find a thread where this was linked:

I dislike it as well.
I have the same issue on this Shaman too, Ascendance turns me into a beefcake grey-skinned man with a very goofy hat, when we should turn into genderless elementals.

I'd love to see a muscly female demon form for Metamorphasis, but Blizzard will make it skinny and sexy so it won't be ideal. Still, it's better then what it is now.

I would absolutely love my Demonology form to look like this...

Minus the thick Borderlands-esque black borders and shading. :)

A female Demon Form Makes sense, but it's just down to developer time investment and priority. I think We've all learned by now that even the revamped class models are taking a gargantuan effort from the devs, and a sub-form for a single class is probably the lowest thing on their priority list : (

So, what is going blizzard to do?

priority list? they should have hundreds of designers to make every of our petitions.....
