General customization suggestions thread

Alright, so this is going to be a general customization suggestion thread, where were going to have suggestions for any race here we desire. However before i give them myself, in the interest of fairness here, i would not be making void elf suggestions*. I’ve already made them on the other thread. By no means, i’m not saying you are disallowed to.

Speaking of, if you're wondering why i'm making another thread on this but for all races, then click here.

The premise of the void elf thread of mine is to give both what they want, by giving void elf void customizations, given that Blizzard is ready and listening to us, making all the wonderful changes in 9.1.5 and how we got two more hair colors for Void elf. And unlike in my typical fashion, i just kept it short and to the point there. It’s to suggest blizzard an idea and as a secondary, unite those involved who would i thought would at least get behind or be okay with.

While i like the high elf customizations and both give is good, i won’t blame the people who were disillusioned by the culture war (if you will) with the void elves and voiced their opinions concisely on that thread. I just thought it would be better to get the problem fixed rather then leave it be, But for the thread’s premises alone, it’s focused on having civility to a fault where it doesn’t consider the reasons or the very existence of spite involved, despite being the secondary idea behind it. And this is on me here. It’s not like others where they suggest removing stuff or simply being a jerk to those who support high elf customization, but it does missed the mark on what i set it up to do.

So for the sake of this thread, consider it a revision for focusing on a better way of going about getting customization options in a matter that is considerably more fair for everybody since it’s now not limited by a race.

Also, on that asterisk* where i said i’m not going to mention void elves… that line specifically was written before i’ve went into so much detail on the suggestions i wanted for the other races. And then the thought occurred to me way too late that i’ve barely given what i exactly want for void elves other then just saying “Voidy options” which even that is particularly vague. So that’s another miss on my part of that thread. :dizzy_face:

So for that thread, i will have to update to specify what i want for them. Not tonight though because long threads like these just make me wish for a point to edit system. :sob:

So here we go! Starting with my suggestions. I have more in mind, but these are just a start.

Also update, i had to update the list. If you see any :white_check_mark: on there, that means it’s already in there.

All Races:
  • Different body parts for differing levels of weights, not just your average Skinny, Fat, Muscular, and any of the variation here, but separated for Torso, Legs and Arms. So if you want a puff chest but skinny arms and fat legs, there ya go!
  • Black, Gray, and White Hair colors. Should honestly be a standard for all if you ask me.
  • 5 o’clock, peach fuzz and stubble facial hair. Or painted on if you will. Sometimes you just want to look like it’s been 2 days since you’ve shaved.
  • Long beards, speaking of.
  • Differentiating scales between 95% and 105%.
  • Elder mode, where you get elderish complexion and hair texture. (the off toggle will be the normal mode you’re used too)

Zandalari trolls:
  • Same suggestions said about trolls apply to here, but reworked to fit the theme with Zandalari trolls here, and instead of only blood trolls.
  • Gold teeth, jaws, chin, ear and eyes. And i don’t mean gold colored, i mean literal gold. Like literally replacing a jaw with a golden jaw.

Those are my suggestions, so let’s hear yours. :smiley:

Making the Frostwolf ensemble cosmetic armor not tied to only leather wearers. And the same with all the cosmetic pieces tied to the garrisons.

Void elf weapons that were datamined

heritage weapons.

Personally, I think all ranks should get customization options.

Better butts for male night elves! Or gnome druids and gnome DH so I don’t have to be a night elf in the first place!

All races:

  • Skirts, kilts, and shorts. Right now casters have to choose between a nun’s habit or a pole dancing outfit. Some in-between choices would be great. In-game shorts are either knee length or bikinis, with little compromise.
  • Make glasses like shirts rather than head armour. There’s a lot of headgear that would go well with glasses (and admittedly some that would look ridiculous).
  • Eye colour matches for different specs. Example: Death Knights get Blue/Red/Green for Frost/Blood/Unholy.

Edit, added because of another thread got me thinking:

  • Customizable personalities by being able to select different voices, dances, and gestures.

I made a thread like this some time ago (after 9.0 launch). Here’s my hopes back then. Some are being fulfilled in 9.1.5!

Gender locking jewelry still baffles me.

I would still like scars and tattoos being more available to other races.

And I wish male blood elves got those chains that were seen in the alpha for Shadowlands. If you already had a bunch of elves as concubines then why back out with these? Let me live my himbo fantasy Blizz.

Also stuff like torn / ripped ears would be neat with any race. We’re all fighting ALL THE TIME. A bit of body damage would be neat

Heck you could even sell voice options on the shop since it would take a decent chunk of change to get a voice actor to do that many voice lines

I just saw the legion timewalking weapons that are very nightborne centric, i would love to see them expand that to the other allied races. i wanna be able to mog weapons that dont just look close to right for the heritage armor but look like they are part of the set.

Make glasses a jewelry option so they don’t take up the head slot. The glasses would go great with some of the hats.

Good suggestions.

My biggest one is high mountain tauren should at least match the customization options of normal tauren. It’s crazy how little they have. The most limited race in the game by far.

Are Nightborne good now? I was just on the PTR 9.1.5 and they do have a more closed eye option, but I’m unsure if it’s the same as the NPCs from Suramar or not.

Haven’t checked in game yet.

I think, i might’ve forgotten. :man_shrugging:

Mount Equipment:

  • Glyph of wishful thinking - Non-flying winged mounts such as Hawkstriders and Mechanostriders can glide slightly when jumping and take 25% less fall damage.
  • Glyph of Immovable Object - Repair/Vendor mount can be summoned in a non-riding area of a dungeon but cannot be ridden.
  • Glyph of Gratitude - Vendor mounts get a 1% speed buff for every other person who repairs, transmogs, or makes an AH transaction. Stacks up to ten times, lasts 3hrs of game time.

Every race should have access to scars and thematically-appropriate tattoos (or visually equivalent markings for the furred races), as separate options independent of other features, and with separate options for facial and body scars and markings. The ability to have bare-chested transmog makes a lot more visual real estate available for character customization than there used to be, and I want to be able to have my characters’ looks reflect their combat experience.

I’d like to see more two-toned hairstyles as a general rule, I think they’re neat.

I would like player death knights to have access to red eyes, since we already have prominent death knight NPCs who don’t have the classic glowing blue eyes. I would also like to see the existing death-knight-specific skin textures adapted to more hues, both to fit allied races and to match some of the recently added skin tones, as well as a couple new death-knight-specific skin textures to give some more variety to the more dead-looking options. In addition to general face and body scarring options that I would like to be available to everyone, specific death scar options that are visually different from other scarring for death knights (and maybe Forsaken?) might be interesting. There’s also the (admittedly highly unlikely) possibility of specific tattoos for death knights, ala Koltira in the original starting zone, assuming that his tattoos are something he has thanks to the Scourge and not something he had when he was alive.
