As long as Night Elf women become better looking, and more bouncy. They seem really stiff when they do that bounce thing.


They need to remove the bounce entirely.


I can't possibly understand why. Night Elf women are supposed to be cute, aren't they?

Because Night Elf women are supposed to be ferocius, not be eyecandy.

No. No they're not.

They're supposed to be semi-feral.

So that's why they added a couple of cute anime hairstyles back in Cata.

I don't know about you but anime scares me.

all I can think about is that one comic from The Punchline is Machismo where the guy says "that's a fully grown woman pulling off pigtails. Her craziness is off the charts."
I don't mind the bounce only because I like to think of night elves as always ready to move or spring into action but maybe just not so often. It's hard to look serious when you're doing that all the time.

I still prefer it to the belf "I hate being here" idle animation.
I really hope they touch up the draenei models a little bit. I know BC races aren't necessarily a priority at the moment but... I love my draenei :<

But the -angst-!

At least the scowl has a bit of expression to it.

Spacegoat + blood elf models do still have a few issues. Hands, for one. You guys have hooves so at least you don't need to see the bad foot work (dohoho).

But think of the poor humans and night elves!

-Aspects talk about the Well, GOEL GOEL makes them forget about it.-
It-its not like I want my eternity back anyway, b-baka!

Watching a draenei mount a horse is painful to watch, not to mention makes their backs curve ridiculously forward.
I'd prefer a more angular, feral look to them though. The bounce is obvious it's appealing to a sexual view, not a woodland elf appearance. I'd prefer a longer nose, angular features, a bit more solid, fangs, claws, messier hair (leaves, debris) options. That's what I want.

I wasn't going to mention the rather... interesting take on the body shape, just the obviously ugly areas.

We all know there wont be any new models
Brack: Yeah. Every BlizzCon, someone will ask in our open Q&A about what’s the plan for that. That’s something we definitely want to do. Talking about it being a balancing act… I feel like changing players’ characters and how that works is very fundamental. It’s very core. It’s very dangerous. It’s very scary. My favorite story about this is, we had a… The human female. This is years and years ago, in the Burning Crusade days. We released a patch, and there was something different with the human female character model in the patch. The forums were on fire. “Oh my God! It looks so terrible! It looks awful!”

We looked back in the changelog because we didn’t even know what’s going on. What happened was, a tech artist had gone through and he had fixed the right eyelid blinking. The right eyelid would blink, and the lid would invert whenever it blinked. He changed it. He moved one vertice up just a little bit, so now it’s blinking right. Great. Fixed. Move on to the next thing. He didn’t think anything of it.

You’d look at the forums and you’d think we killed a baby. “Oh my God, they changed everything!” No, really, we changed one vertice that you probably can’t even notice. But it’s amazing how people gravitated on to that. Because that’s their character.

RPS: Yeah. It’s really fascinating. People spend thousands of hours with these characters, soaking up every last detail.

Brack: And it is them, in some regard, right? There’s definitely a kind of personification that happens for a lot of players. To change who they are is pretty serious. That is definitely something we want to do. It has all those challenges. It has all those problems. But it’s definitely something we want to do. You look at the pandaren, or even a goblin, and you compare them to the human, which is I think the first character that we ever made in the game, or the tauren… It’s pretty sad.

And then Burning Crusade, we’ve talked about that as well. There was a while where Burning Crusade was the best thing we’d ever done. Now it’s the worst thing we’ve ever done, because everything else has raised the level, with Cataclysm. It’s definitely on the list of things we’d like to do, but we haven’t talked about doing it quite yet.


Quote is from RockPaperShotgun's interview with WoW's production director J. Allen Brack. Thought it was pertinent to the whole WoW character model discussion. It also raises a good point on how attached we are - I remember folks flipping out about the ever so slight change to human females.

As long as they just tweak up the polygon count for blood elves Ill be happy.

And give female blood elves an actual /salute, and make our weapons bigger. Female humans are the same size as female blood elves and yet there weapons are huge -.-
