JF Asked When we Want More Customization

I’m probably a bit biased stating this, but it still has some truth to it: The most popular races that have been neglected customization-wise should be focused on 1st, followed by the less popular races.

So by order of popularity and lacking customization:


Worgen: They need more hairstyles, facial expressions, and tails.
Void elves: They need a lot of hairstyles, as well as tattoos, voidy hair effects, jewellery, voidy skin tones etc. There’re threads up listing everything that’s requested.
Dark Iron Dwarves: They probably have the least customization out of all races atm. They need skin colours, hair colours, hairstyles, and jewellery.
Kul’Tirans: They should share all human skin tones, should get more hairstyles, and more faces. They should also be able to be Paladins.


Zandalari Trolls: They need aztec style gold jewellery, more tusks options, more skin colours, hairstyles, faces etc
Blood elves: As they’re the most popular and have been making requests for several years now, they’re making it to the list. They want tattoos and face runes, scars, red eyes, and undead skin tones. There’re Megathreads up listing their requests.
Nightborne: They badly need some lighter skin tones, more youthful, non-wrinkly faces, and more prominent tattoos.
Vulpera: Need more fur patterns, facial expressions and more snouts.

Pandaren: They need lots of jewellery, facial expression options, hair colours etc.

Honorable mentions: Draenei have no eye colours…neither do LFD.

I didn’t plan to list all races but damn, that’s 9 races in dire need of stuff right there.

I would like to make it clear that I am a huge fan of more customization. Basically the customization and allied races were the announcements that sold me on preordering the last couple of expansion.

With that said I don’t want more right away. I think that they have concentrated too much on customization and tried to push out a lot of what we had too quickly to make things seem “even” and with that we got sloppy allied races, clipping hair through the back of heads, and even with their efforts to give everybody something… lackluster new customization for many of the races.

And it’s not about what we didn’t get. It’s about the quality of what we did get that disappoints. The more and more and more they are trying to do then the less appealing it looks at the end.

I’m glad they are focusing on this one race to be perfectly honest. I hope they turn out good.

And if they do then maybe they can add some more customization for our other races later on. And for the love of everything maybe it could be added as a nice surprise in a small patch somewhere or just a random insert instead of blown up into a main feature of an expansion. So ridiculous to expect so little from them. I don’t understand why they can’t just add one nice new hairstyle to one race at one point and then a cool tattoo for another a little bit later…:slightly_smiling_face:

You make some great points there. The only thing I’ll have to disagree with is this:

Apparently they have already been customizing the new race so much, that it has 30 hair colours and 5 separate pages of customization (some of our current races barely have 1 page).

Now, let’s see what we were given in the last 2 expacs prior to SL:

BFA: 6 Allied races
Legion: A class, and 4 Allied races

Going by the let down that was Shadowlands with its limited customization additions, no races, no classes and all other issues, we were given the impression that Dragonflight would have to literally fly right?

So, if they were to get even remotely close to Legion standards, then no, a single Allied race will not suffice. So ideally we should see either an extra allied race added in 10.0 and a lot more customization, or no new AR in 10.0 but a ton of new customization and new race/ class combos.

Considering a nexus modder with the dev tools could probably do it in a couple days I say next patch every race should have more.

But you know blizzard needs to make a huge deal out of stuff like this and threaten a raid tier or something.

If that’s the case then why make everyone wait for so many years just for customizations? I think it may be more related to the creation of new assets such as hairstyles, jewellery, tattoos etc…at least that’s what I’d like to believe but if you know better please enlighten me as it’s a matter greatly discussed about

Firmly believe they genuinely don’t read the forums at all or any other sites and places despite the claims that they do.

Other than player housing, more customization options for all races in the game is the #1 requested thing, how dense are they?

Edit: How many megathreads are there for more options for nearly every race? Megathreads that have outlined so many options for literal years at this point, basically since before alpha with SL maybe even some long before SL was even announced! It’s like they choose to not see it or something I swear.

How many fan edit videos and private servers like Epsilon exist that give 100 times more options than the live game. It’s a disgrace really.


Exactly, and then Jeremy Feasel just publicly goes ‘‘the community can tell us when they want more customizations’’ we’ve been requesting them for like the last 2+ years what do you meaaan loool. Now! Give’em now or ASAP.


Literally the last 2 years, maybe even longer at this point because why wouldn’t people want more options like this? Lmao.

And don’t even get me started on the humans! The males need so so soooo much work it’s not even funny! They’ve been the same beefy disproportionate bodies with bad hair polygons since Vanilla! So almost 20 years on a subscription based game with bad character models…!

Say Hello to ESO, GW2, and FF14. They pretty much are still doing Character Customization Options more than WoW is doing.

Sorry but Void Elves have gotten more attention than all the other races combined.

They can get to the back of the line.

I feel the Pandaren got the shortest end of the stick. They were the newest model when we got updated models eight years ago… right yeah but they also are 10 years old now. An entire decade and they got some very lame additions. Three skin colors, a tail, and three haircuts which are just awful. Male got their hair features detached from their faces. 10 years and that is all they’ve received. Not even heirloom armor either.

False I’m afraid. Pandaren have: 17 skin colours, 21 ‘‘faces’’ (more like fur patterns), 22 hairstyles, 7 mustaches, 20 beards, and 11 eye colours. So it’s not as bad as people like to make it seem. They do certainly need more stuff (they have 0 jewellery) but are by no means bottom of the line.

Void elves are very popular among the Alliance. They only have 10 hairstyles and are now behind Nightborne, LFD and HMT. I’m not putting them at the very end of the line just cause they got some re-colours. They have almost as much customization as Mechagnomes. And if I were in the devs place I’d give customization to Kul’Tirans and Mechagnomes last. They’re by far the least played and least popular races. They’re also quite recent coming out in BFA.

Raising my hand for UPRIGHT UNDEAD!!!

I don’t necessarily feel like I need a bunch of “NEW” options, so much as I’d like to see them continue to refine the options that already exist.

Male Human hair-styles, for example, be lookin’ ROUGH. Those “hairline” textures are just awful. It’s clear when they added the new “ethnic” options for the Human, THOSE options are just worlds higher quality.

Or the Male Nightborne; honetly, they STILL look pretty rough. Their basic standing animation looks like they’re “leaning backwards” (especially in the Dressing Room preview), or adding the proper “glow” effect for their hands (don’t remove the current one, though; I kind of like it too, just very different). And younger, more attractive Face options.

Of course, new options are GREAT! Just not something I’d consider a necessity.

It’s not demanding. We pay a box price and a subscription fee. WoW is woefully behind other games in terms of customization, and the devs need to get on it.


Alliance gets chest sliders.
Horde gets glute sliders.

And suddenly the faction populations are balanced again.


There should be some character customization options that come with every patch IMO.

There’s no way to lose with that.

Darn straight. That way they don’t need to feel overwhelmed with requests. But first they need to get over the mentality of trying to release everything in one go, not having the time and resources to do so, and then disappointing people because not everyone got things. But if they keep working on it (instead of putting all their eggs in Drakthyr) they’ll eventually get there and every race will feel wholesome and updated.
