The customization options are amazing. I can’t help but feel as though the blood elves and night elves might be pushing a political agenda too far. And frankly look a bit horrifying in some cases and out of place in others (Especially the caucasian skin tone for Night Elves [Skin tone similar to that of a long time addict] and the afro-american skin tone for blood elves [Looks out of place, and does not do justice to African lineage seeing as the blood elves features are heavily inspired by caucasion/asian aestetic].
It’s understandable that Blizzard attempts to represent different ethnic groups in a game played and enjoyed by millions of different people around the world.
And as much as Blood-Elves and Night-Elves are the closest a non-human would come to physically resemble an actual human reforging their identity in such a hastened, arbitrary and politically influenced way does not do those two races justice.
Implementing concepts in such a lazy way as a quick paint job is dissapointing considering, the opportunities shown through variety in the new allied races.
Latin American, African, European/North American, Asian culture all have a such a variety in different variety in humanoid creatures in their mythos, and would-rather reforge the current races rather than implement new ones is a waste in my opinion.
Apologies for bringing politics to the forums.
This being said the overall look of the rest of the new aesthetical changes look amazing!
