Male night elf faces

Oh my god THANK YOU

Edit:
Well…


It looks like we’re just subbing out the scowl for 3 faces and not getting “3 new ones.”
Shame. I was hopeful for the wrong reasons.

Thank you! Although I don’t think it will entirely fix the male nelf face problem since those 3 faces are still wrinkly. I hope we can get some more handsome/younger options in the future :smiley:

Can we please also take a look at the shoulder armor placement for Male Night Elves while we’re at it? The anchor point for both shoulders are not in the same place symmetrically and the left shoulder (right facing the front of the character) is tilted more downward to the side and makes transmogging shoulders a nightmare as anything slightly larger or poking out are very visibly unsymmetrical.

Thank you.

Especially for not removing the faces but instead adding ones without the scowls.

Thank you so much.

Always happy to see more options.

My first, and continued, character is a Night Elf. Back in Vanilla, I picked a specific face because that face reflected a degree of, not simplicity, but a minimalist mindset. The character was always meant to be more about what must be done and she didn’t care how she looked. That face came with a smile though, that didn’t reflect my character’s somberness. But it was the best compromise of the options available, so up until WoD, Ata had, what I called “Joker face.”

When WoD happened, and we got the new character updates, I found that that smiling face didn’t work anymore, and I was glad that Blizzard put face optimizations in the game. Because it turns out the next face on the list, one that was too much “done up” for my tastes then, now reflects the somberness and sorrow that defines my character now.

I guess the point is that now that the faces have rigging, Blizzard shouldn’t be afraid of what the resting faces look like. The player will find a model that works for them.

There it is! Personally I think the “M-Shaped” unnatural mouth was always odd and just needed to be fixed, but I actually GREATLY appreciate the principle that you guys are “adding instead of replacing.” Very excited to see what they look like!

Yes, please!! I was so happy they did it with Nightborne and now I can use my favorite hairstyle without clashing my transmog colors.

Good change, default face expressions should always be it’s own option for all races. I want my characters to be perpetually grumpy or mad.

Nice response! Great! Fantastic. Love it!

Oh yay! I’m very pleased with this, I know they’re 10000 years old but the “young” faces are my favorite for sure.

What a joke Blizzard has become fixing night elf faces while so many bugs are still rampant and the mage tower is still for the 1%.

Honestly, I kinda love that look. Too bad it’s just not recreatable in game. The face shape is all wrong and instead of making the guys look tough, it just makes them look old.

My Demon Hunter does use this face, though, which I find works pretty well for him:
