As someone who is very picky about what races I play because of their animation sets, it bothers me on some level that I can’t swap from the Human model to an Elf model. We have examples of Dragons who can assume either form and, if I’m not mistaken, both. So why not allow us to? Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m fully aware that combat will be done in your Dragon form, and I have no qualms with how that looks. The level of customization for a Dracthyr is impressive already, and I even have the benefit of having my signature colors availible. But that does kind of come at the cost of the ability to mog most armor pieces onto your dragon body and with Mail armor having, at least in my opinion, very little to offer for satisfying transmog appearances. So, would it be too much to request an extra switch, to toggle between an Elf or Human model? Please?
Also, as a side note, I would like to make a distinction: The model itself looks nice. The Dracthyr add just enough to the normal human model to make it look good… until you start moving. But I can’t stand to look at those animations any longer than I have to.
Edit: I would like to make a counter-argument in advance, as I can see someone potentially raising the point that it’s done this way to improve distinction between Alliance and Horde Dracthyr; Their dragon forms don’t necessarily differentiate either, as far as I can tell. And we also have Void Elves and Blood Elves, both running around as “High Elves” with the classic pale skin and lightly-colored eyes.
