DK eye effects and why we haven’t seen them ingame before. A brief history.
WoW’s game engine is named Azeroth. Azeroth is old, has been somewhat neglected due to RL budget issues and company politics but changes are on the way.
These changes showed up in updated sections of the game, hence the alliance getting new mounts in the form of updated horses. This was misunderstood and caused some complaints but the reality is, alliance received updated mounts first.
Then there’s the AR’s which, on the surface appeared to be a somewhat relaxed way (read lazy if you prefer) of providing additional content, especially when some of the ARs appeared to be just reskins of existing races however it appears to be an attempt at giving more choices to the players.
More model updated/upgraded choices.
So then they change up the eyeballs of all avatars and it appears that the DK’s get vapour aka gas coming from their eyes and this seems new but it’s not.
DK’s have always farted from their eyes, it’s just that we didn’t see it before because Azeroth is old and had been somewhat neglected but then some angry guy came along, gave Azeroth an enema in the form of a giant sword and now, Az feels better and is finally getting a little love in the form of some updates and now, we can suddenly see that our beloved goth DKs have always been farting from their eye sockets.
Is this the lore? No. I pulled this out my butt and it was funnier when it was in my head but this is a potential reason that we can now see DK eye vapour as they are filled with power and that tends to seep, hence the eyes.
If you read this, I apologize. Have a g’day.
