Anasterian replacing the Archmage hero (I'm guessing) in the Path of the Damned is so awesome. I'm loving them fixing these sensible continuity errors, or things that were sort of half-assed due to production constraints.

I don't know how I feel about the overall art style. Some of the models work for me. But a lot of the cinematic-based characters just almost literally look like the cinematic takes. (Archimonde & Mannoroth for example)

But there's something kind of limited about it. They're going for more realistic proportions but that's... weird.
The problem is that the armor is absurd and the buildings have Fisher Price proportions. It makes the characters’ realistic proportions look utterly incongruous. Our minds can subconsciously tell when things are off about human bodies.

I feel the artstyle is going to be as divisive as the original one was. Except this time, only between established fans. Back then, it was mostly divisive between those who'd become fans and those who wouldn't, although you had some Warcraft II fans who seriously disliked it.

I have only found one reforged model that I don't really like. The Shrine of Azshara, which previously features a couatl (probably), now features a winged cobra. I just find is a bit weird having all this cobra imagery in naga structures - is it a cobra wild god? Some kind of naga mutation we've never seen?

It just seems weird to me, we've literally never seen cobras in proximity to naga.

I kind of wished the Shrine of Azshara had been completely remodeled to feature one of those classical statues of Azshara instead.
Daelin was right.

Uhm, aren't Couatls winged cobras?

To me these look like they're meant to represent the same animal.

Okay, so actuuuaallly, I think maybe they're replacing the granite golems with Anasterian and some other High Elf heroes.

I still really wish they'd up the difficulty on RoC's hard mode. It's... so easy. And the item tables.

I wonder how they're going to simulate Quel'danas too.

The fuck is that supposed to be? That's not how wildkins look. That's awful. It screams "edge" and "cool" and "animayz". I don't like it.
My love for you is like a truck, berserker.
Would you like some making fuck, berserker?
