JF Asked When we Want More Customization

No you didn’t. Anyone can play it. You choose not to.

Anyone can start the new race/class combo. You choose not to.

If this fit the expansion … they would … like you see … everything it’s possible :laughing:

I agree, honestly.

It’s not a flex at all considering 90%+ of the playerbase will never main an evoker in any serious capacity. Pair that with the fact that Dracthyr are locked SOLELY to evoker and it seems like a lot of wasted effort.

Maybe it’ll pay off once they open up Dracthyr to additional classes, but they really ought to improve the customization options of the current races too for folks that prefer those.


WoW is miles ahead in “competitive gameplay” is more disingenuous than anything I’ve written. Games don’t have to be the best in competitive gameplay to be fun, and WoW is not miles ahead in gameplay of games like FFXIV, Lost Ark, or GW2. It’s entirely preference which game you enjoy, but every other game has better character customization than WoW, and doesn’t sacrifice content for it.

Giving a handful of options to a handful of races and none to others with absolutely no indication of when or if this would ever happen again? I’d like to see where people were complaining and criticizing the new options, and I’m not surprised people were complaining and criticizing that it took so long and that we don’t get enough updates.

Character customization in an RPG is a dud is such a bad opinion I can’t really even say anything about it, if that’s your opinion fine, but that’s kind of ridiculous. It was never meant to be a gold sink and it shouldn’t be, and in a game where your entire interaction with the game is through your avatar, I don’t think an argument can be made that it’s a dud.

Blizzard can and should put their resources into something like player housing and more customization. This isn’t some indie company with 2 developers in a garage, this is a AAA studio with one of the largest games to ever exist, and they’ve gone on record about how it’s less and less difficult for them to make these sort of changes as time goes on, “resources” isn’t a valid excuse.


way i see it, this new race will be a testing bed for new customization ideas that can then be put on other races in future content patches.

i see no reason to be upset that this new race gets more customization options then the rest, as long as the new idea’s the team uses on them (if they work out) get put onto the other races.

i myself am more excited on the charge mechanic being implamented into other classes.

(Sorry, I can’t actually quote directly. But I wanted to bring those in the CC talking about customization in on this.)

Figured it’d be fruitful for the discussion to bleed into that thread along with customization as it’s incredibly relevant.

My opinion on this matter: The more customization for races already in place sooner, the better. I’m assuming no more is coming for 9.2.5, which is a shame, but it’d be nice to see requests taken seriously for the upcoming expansion.


from what I see it will only do as In Shadowlands and BfA more than the Tier in raids.

In the dungeons we will continue with a simple type of armor customization like in Shadowlands soul merchant set in Oribos seen in all the dungeons of that expansion due to the company’s laziness.

Which, the only thing I wish apart from the Gray and white transmog, would be that if I could customize with low level armor according to your class (sorry clothe class) so a class like Warrior, Hunter or Rogue could use any armor depending on their class without having to change that armor or lower the level not indicated to your class.

That’s like I said in characters for the Rogues like Vaalera Sanguinar, Moroes and Vanessa Vancleef use clothes armor, while the leather ones can only transmogrify but we can’t make them available according to our class like clothes.

Thing that for now until I have a better armor costume designer, I opt for this option to be able to use this system to transmog these armors.


Yeah. Right now is the answer.

If that’s the player housing expansion we may not get customizations then. But that’s if they’re listening to the feedback.

For the record I’d like to see another wave of customizations in 9.2.5. The more you keep at it the quicker people’s demands will be met.

For how much Blizz used customizations as a selling point in Shadowlands, they really dropped the ball by abandoning it. Dropped the ball twice by not even mentioning another wave during DF, two years later.

Tell me you’re a WoW dev that doesn’t listen without telling me you’re a WoW dev that doesn’t listen.

Seriously, how can they even ask this? People have been clamoring for more stuff for existing races.
Heritage sets, hairstyles, etc., etc…
Somehow losing more faith in Blizz despite having none at all lately.


I’d feel bad except they should’ve had the foresight to see that void elves were stupid. It’s like having your horde playerbase ask for ogres and getting elves and pandas instea…oh wait.

Damn straight. Have they not noticed the elf megathreads that are about? The worgen tails thread? The people asking for beards?? There’s this funny guy who keeps making threads asking for wizard beards


This is one thing that’s really irked me this expansion, they made such a big deal about it as something they’d do and would continue working on in shadowlands and then dropped some pretty ok stuff for a handful of races, pat themselves on the back and said “Alright we did it guys, we won customization!”

Like, this should always be an ongoing thing. Dracthyr are getting like 30 haircolors and 2 tone hair, are any of the rest of us going to be able to have that? Why is that not something that’s a priority to ship with, I would LOVE to have some of those hairstyles and colors.


Yes! Preach! And they haven’t even got to how many hairstyles they’re making for the Drakthyr either.

So many ideas on internet

They didn’t even give us all the customization options they showed off at Blizzcon 2019. They never implemented the dark brown eyes or the eye shape options for Humans and there’s also a tattoo/warpaint color option they didn’t implement for Trolls. There’s no indication that the missing customization options will ever get added, either.


True, there were definitely some cool eye shapes and face shapes that really helped the human model in particular look distinctive.

And the fact that they’ve said that they are rigging things in ways that make this easier to do, it’s insane to me that some races have 5-10 hair colors to choose from.

I’m not asking for sliders on everything, but a real color pallet for hair and some new styles would go a long way. Hell NPCs have some amazing hair, why can’t we get some of that?


bottom line for me is other mmos absolutely dunk on wow when it comes to character customization, and considering wow’s popularity/prevalance that shouldn’t be the case at all


Vanilla Tauren still only have 4 face choices for females and 5 for males.

Only 4 face options.
1, 2, 3, 4 <–that’s all, folks!
In 2022.
