Okay, looked it up and did the math on the newer additions. Discounting the 3 that just got major overhauls, the Allied Races in customization are (from Lowest to Highest)
Fun Fact, Nightborne were the only race with less than the Dark Iron. So I’m not sure why they skipped the Dark Iron for Lightforged and Highmountain.
- Dark Iron Female (110,880)
- Vulpera Male (186,264)
- Vulpera Female (248,832)
- Dark Iron Male (483,840)
- Kul Tiran Male (762,048)
- Kul Tiran Female (2,593,080)
- Void Elf Female (6,082,560)
- Zandalari Male (9,144,576)
- Void Elf Male (11,501,568)
- Mag’Har Female (14,1000,480)
- High Elf Female (15,966,720)
- Zandalari Female (20,321,280)
- Mechagnome Female (22,014,720)
- High Elf Male (33,546,240)
- Mechagnome Male (102,736,360)
- Mag’har Male (265,420,800)
If we discount the “toggles” that most people don’t seem to count as customization, AKA Tentacle Toggle and Mag’Har Back Toggle, you divide Void Elf by 6 and Mag’har by 2. This still places Mag’har as the most options, but Void Elves plummet to 6th and 7th lowest.
Also Fun Fact: Worgen of both Genders, Pandaren of Both Genders, Forsaken of Both Genders, Gnomes of Both Genders, and Blood Elf Males all have less options than at least one of these races on this list.
I had to keep Void and Normal separate on Void Elf because the faces are actually locked to specific skin colors, so it’s not as simple as just multiplying the options together like most races. It has nothing to do with me trying to make them look like they have less. In this specific situation, the Void and Normal customizations are quite literally separate until Blizzard removes that restriction.
This is also why the Human Combinations in the spreadsheet from a couple years ago is inaccurate, they just multiplied all the numbers together even though a lot of faces are restricted to certain skin colors and made it seem like humans had way more combinations than they do. An accurate spreadsheet would have included the customizations for the 3 types of humans they added.
To make it easier to read, I just called the normal skin color High Elf, even though I personally don’t like that term. They’re quite literally just Blood Elves with void elf hairstyles and less options lol. But it seemed better than putting “Blood Elf Colored” Void Elf and “Void Elf Colored” Void Elf lol.
Also to note, a lot of these choices aren’t really noticeable. For instance, most of the Dark Iron skin tones are the same, the Void Elves have 5 shades of blue for eyes, out of 8 options, the vulpera nose options are barely noticeable, etc. They took the lazy way out with Allied Race choices.
This should give you an idea of why a lot of people who didn’t want High Elves aren’t a fan of them being added. It makes Void Elves look like they had more effort put into them than there was, as the vast majority oif their customization was just copy/pasted from Blood Elf. It also shows you that Void Elves were amongst the bottom before they added said copy/pasted stuff and the tentacle toggle lol.
In short, I’d personally like to see Dark Iron, Vulpera, and either Void Elf (focusing on VOID OPTIONS) or Kul Tiran get the next customization overhaul.
