Orc Icon (War3) The (Un)official Warlords of Draenor thread V: Patch 6.2 onwards edition

We are up to 902 pages on the other one and Draenor being spelled "Draenour" irks me to no end. As release is quickly approaching this thread will lead from 6.2 onward into actual release. Seemed like a good time to make a new one

Bloodfang Worgen with tattoos and mangier fur.

Like this gentleman right here.

I used to think Night Elf Worgen would work but now I think I wouldn't like it. They need less Night Elf stuff watering them down.

Would be awesome if they let the players roll a night elf worgen (the first worgens are night elves after all) they would get the "worgen ritual". And they could start in Teldrassil instead Gilneas.

That would probably be terrible, actually.

I'd be satisfied with Dark Iron Dwarves, personally.

I feel that races such as Blood Elves and Gnomes are already perfect, and need no variations. I suppose humans and forsaken could have different voice actors for regional dialects.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

If they're going to put in sub-race skins, I just them to make sense in the starting zones they'll have to play through. Really, that narrows it down to orcs and dwarves because the others either lack a logical racial skin or have one but it's a different model.

They'll really care less about it making sense in a starting zone.

Better make sure they make sense 4 years in the past. I honestly can't see any major logic flaws to include the logical ones at this point.

Humans: Different body types, possibly new voices for regional accents.

Undead: Undead elves

Goblins: Hobgoblins, gilblins, both are kind of pushing it, but whatever.

Draenei: Easy, Broken.

Night elves: High elves, make them more like the original high elf model.

Blood elves: Crack elves, fel elves, high elves who join the horde, whatever floats your goat.

Worgen: Night elfey ones with fur patterns maybe? Or how bout they overhaul the female one so it doesn't look like an maniacal furries' jerk off fantasy.

Tauren: Taunka, they are official members of the horde as of Wotlk.

Orcs: Maghar, red orcs and fel orcs if they have the balls. Dragonmaw skins.

Dwarves: Dark iron, wildhammer tattoos, hell even iron dwarf skins could be possible, or earthern.

Gnomes: Leper gnomes, Mechgnomes if they went a little crazy.

Trolls: Other types, obviously.

Pandaren: Different body types, or maybe even Furbolgs
Most of that is ok, but some of them I have a problem with. Fel elves/orcs for the Horde would be out of place even among the general evilness allowed in the Horde, since the fel elves/orcs are literally ones that bathed in/drank gallons of demon blood/energy.
I don't think earthen would join the dwarves. Work with them yes, but the earthen seem very duty bound and would stay with the Titan watchers to help fix the problems there.
The old High elven skin for Night elves so they can have high elves would be too jarring because lorewise there isn't any difference between High and Blood elves other than politics and eye color. They are physically the same. Giving the High elves a different model would anger a hell of a lot of High/Blood elven players.
Pandaren are all fat. That seems to be a racial genetic thing with them.

Would be nice to play as a Frostborn Dwarf.

Maybe with a South Seas expansion pack they could bring some some Goblin sub species from the RPG in the game for instance Spider Eyed Goblins and perhaps some isolated tribe of Island Tauren.

No!.. That thread only needed less than 100 pages until page 1000

As per sub-races and/or else: whatever they can do if that means playable High Elves.

I think that would be fair, I mean why always humans are the "most important thing" in the alliance? We LITERALLY have 2 humans options in the character creation panel (stormwind and gilneas).

I would race change all my "human worgen" to night elf worgen. I'm tired of humans. The "feral stuff" don't fit with them at all (especially the arrogant and luxurious gilneans). After all worgen curse was created by night elves and it comes from their "pack form" Worgens aren't really a race, they're like a druid form, that's why their children will be humans.

Uhm, that's not correct to be honest. Taunka ARE an own model, just like the broken are. And both obviously use the Tauren skeleton. Yeah, I'm a bit pedantic about things like this.

I just disagree with you on so many levels but I don't want to derail the thread about it so I'll leave it at that.

I'd settle for Mag'har, Blackrock/Dragonmaw, and Shattered Hand skins for orcs; Dark Iron, Wildhammer, and Frostborn skins for dwarves. Chaos orcs are feasible, but they toe a line I'll get to in a moment.

But that's because I honestly don't want undead elves as an option for Forsaken undead; not just because I personally disagree with it but because the starting zone takes place during a time at which elven undead would be implausible.

The same problem exists to varying degrees for night elven worgen in the worgen starting zone, gilblins in the goblin starting zone (Hobart created them after Kajaro's eruption), furbolgs on the Wandering Isle, fel orcs in Durotar, Wretched and felblood elves in Quel'Thalas, and leper gnomes (as your irradiated character is cleansed in one of the early quests to avoid this).

Krokul, hobgoblins, taunka, earthen, furbolgs, and mechagnomes, as has been pointed out, are all different models, not just skins. The same problem exists with trolls; a convincing forest troll would require yet another remodel. The Zandalari trolls have had several models, the latest of which is based on the night elf male. Sandfury don't have this problem at all, however.

I'm entirely adverse to letting players be skins that are basically always evil. That means gilblins, Wretched, felblood elves, and fel orcs. Not only are they implausible in the setting, they're not creatures the Horde would accept under any circumstance - not even Garrosh's Horde. Chaos orcs toe this line, as I said, but we've seen them work with the Horde before - and those orcs appear to be in control of themselves.

Night elven worgen could start in Teldrassil like other night elves.

I highly highly highly highly highly highly doubt any race customization will extend beyond textures.

This was another little neat thing I found when going through skyboxes.



Clouds that acted a little bit more cloudlike.
