Linking the post I originally wrote (it had a bunch of custom links so understandably I couldn’t post as a “new” forum user so had a friend post it):
I wanted to offer a bit of an extension of other things I would like to see and suggestions for character customisation. This won’t really have as many outside links like last time, but more pointing out stuff that I’m observing while scrolling through the PTR options. As before I’m going in order of the races, but there isn’t too much. I thought I might as well also cross-post this into a more publicly accessible area and add a few extras. I know it looks like a lot, but a good chunk of it is modified / duplicating existing stuff that I don’t think would be difficult.
Also please excuse my repetitive writing, I sort of noticed it only after the original was posted. I will try to be better at English.
There’s a few bugs atm so I’m hesitant to make immediate judgment but there’s face options tied to very specific skin options. Like last time I suggested separating out things like the makeup built in to faces, eyebrows, etc. This in particular is also something more personal to me - my main character has medium-dark skin but I can’t choose the face that I want available to the other skin tones.
I know it’s a bit silly to say but it feels weird that I can’t pick the freckle options I want without choosing either the new skin tones or choosing wrinkles built in on old skin tones. That’s particularly the reason I wish more of those options were separate, and I know it’s a lot easier to do than necessarily creating new options.
Lacking blind eye options.
Could probably have beard jewellery specifically similar to night elf vines.
Eye options are forced via scar options. The “double blind eye” options aren’t even selectable. These should really be separate from scar options.
The blindfold option should be available to females as well as the male body tattoos.
The female facial tattoos should be available to males.
Could probably use more face options, there’s not many to begin with.
They lack any blind eye options.
They lack blind eye options and could probably use them.
Could use a more jet-black type of fur colour maybe in opposition to the snowy-white fur. Most of the current “black” furs are more greys.
A bit unrelated and perhaps could be more of a general thing but they should have more recolour options for their heritage armour that for example replace the gold with silver.
I probably forgot in haste, I was more hyper-focused on Dragonmaw because they’re definitely a part of the Horde, but I wanted to mention that Blackrock (Burning Steppes) and the Chaos (Red) orc skins should probably be available. I don’t know the current state of their acceptance though.
*Quick Edit: Somebody brought up Eitrigg being MU Blackrock.
Lacking blind eye options
They had golden eyes in Throne of Thunder but don’t have such now. It might be argued this was a bit of Zul’s influence or something considering he has similar eyes, but nonetheless I think it should be considered.
They also had more lightning-style tattoos, but that could again be Zul’s Throne of Thunder stuff.
Continuing with the old Zandalari, their “skin scales” seem to be optional as well. According to the files, the ones with lightning tattoos replace the skin scales and the file names are called
zandalaritrollmagic...implying a more magical nature to such.
- Demon Hunters should have the ability to choose either the “double blind eye option” and asymmetrical flaming eye option. I know the point of Demon Hunters otherwise is that they don’t have “normal” eyes, so understand that’s not really what I’m asking for.
It’d also be nice to have a Demon Hunter more based upon a red fire theme, including some red fire eyes and the like. Mostly what comes to mind is a more “classic” style Demon Hunter thematically.
- There’s an opportunity to give Death Knights a more thematic eye colour choice between Green and Red and to also give them half-blind or completely blind eye options.
- Separate the face morphs from the face textures.
- Left / Right eyes should be separate for all races - choose 2 different colours, choose any blind eye with coloured eye, and all races should have blind eye options.
This should be the end of this particular post, I might post more but for now this is what came to mind. Thank you again to the devs doing so much hard work
*Quick Edit: Please fix the bug reporter on PTR, there’s a good amount of bugs with textures atm that I want to report ;-; ( ﾉ ﾟｰﾟ)ﾉ THE BUG REPORTER IS FIXED ( ﾉ ﾟｰﾟ)ﾉ PRAISE BE
