Tyranda,


Yes, good, show them why this is a bad idea.

I do hope we'll hear something solid soon, since I'm sure most people will agree that the older character models in particular look very dated and out of place when combined with some of the newer environments and character models.

The blue posts and tweets suggest that this is still actively in the works. Unlike Dance Studio, this feature isn't being ignored on the forums at least.

I'm very much waiting for the new models. :) Would love to see a good looking female tauren.

Of course not, give something what us RPers like? Pfah! What a joke.

Transmogrification?


Is good. Could be better. How am I (as an exmple) supposed to complete my alts DS set if I can't enter LFR ;). When do we get to add THAT difficulty to the raid settings?

Transmog could also do with expansion...right now its cryinh out for a dye option so we can change colors.

But yes...I am looking forward to the new models. I had predicted them for next XPac....and I still might be right. ;)

But - I would also like to see the Dance Studio brought in. It would be a neat way to assign different animations to players abilities in addtion to allowing them to swap dances.

That was very handy for role-players, though at the same time it didn't really account for the simple fact that a lot of awesome 'racial' gear cannot be transmogrified at all. An excellent example of this would be the white quality 'blood elf' set available from the very first vendor you encounter in Sunstrider Isle. It's not overly flashy and yet carries the theme and 'uniform' of the race exceptionally well, especially when combined with a Silvermoon tabard.

It's not only RPers who would like to see updated models and who love to transmog stuff.

RPers got everything they need -> Their imagination

While I concur that having an active imagination is the key ingredient to RP, certain things ingame simply stand apart too consistently to truly ignore. Low-polygon models surrounded by beautifully made high-polygon ones, being one such thing.

While not really an RP tool specifically, I agree that it has made certain things easier and more visually pleasing.

As for the whole "RPers never get anything" approach, I personally have found too many nooks and crannies with no NPC's - making them perfect for RP on just about every scale - to agree with it. It might not always be a game-feature as such, but there are an increasing number of objects and places in WoW that I personally feel were meant for exploration and RP.

it could come in next patch, it could come in next expansion or it may never come.

*giggle*, the left or right foot on Blood Elf females still makes a 360 turn when they do a certain move in dancing... :3

And female Draenei go all stiff and weird in their upper body when looking around.

Wanna bet though that we'll see an entirely new cast of disgruntled players once we DO get these new models? "I loved my old female human with bad animations, you've taken away the SOUL of WoW!!!" and the likes of that.

Let us transmogrify to other armour/weapon types and we'll talk. ;3

Naw I think we get more than enough cool RP stuff already though. Pandaria has by far the most fantastic and RP-friendly environments I've ever seen in WoW, plus all of the neat cosmetic thingimajigs.
I still want an item that lets me be a mantid though. o.o

ok guys, but you said that something will be ready for the release of the MOP, we are 3 months after and what?

AND WHAT?

Still no new orc, still no new human.... NO NEW MODELS OF CHARS (EXCL PANDAS).

Its sad really.

You showing us new models of wyverns, but You not updating old ones... its kinda joke from your side.


But you do not care about the new models. In fact I am willing to bet you are happy that there is no news about it. You only wanted to see something that you can complain about.....

When the new character models are ready, we will get them. Until then enjoy the game for what it is...hell, if you want you can start practising your post about how much you hate the new models and either want old ones back or insist Blizzard should have spent more time on them!

Whilst I must admit I do love this feature more than almost any other added to WoW in it's history this is soooooo last expac and fails the "what have you done for me lately" litmus test. :)

I know new character models aren't going to be a cash cow or anything, but there is no denying they could be the killer change of MoP. Shame to postpone them.

It seems they are giving us updated versions of the gryphon and manticore (called wyvern ingame) models in patch 5.1, quite possibly to test the waters in terms of player reactions before they release any news on how the new player models will look.

And I've heard about people complaining over those models already, saying how they like the old models better, even with the low polygon ratio and comparatively stiff animations.

It people get so upset over the mounts, imagine the storm of biological waste the new player models will stir up.
And they're not even changing the old models for the gryphon and manticore. They're just adding them in addition to the old models.

I can see why Blizzard is taking their time with the new player models.
Even if I badly want them too. ;)

I would probably moan if my character models were changed. I like my characters how they are. So yeah, if they did change the models, it would be nice if it was optional, then I could decide if I like the new ones better or not.
