OK, so I’ve copied a few of my characters over to the beta and I have to say – they are unrecognisable with their updated models. Even though it was a good way to test the Garrison when my Horde one had stalled, I came face-to-face with someone who didn’t look that impressed and I can’t say I blame her.
After all, this is how she’s looked since 2006.
About a week ago, I copied my hunter over but I can’t get over her radical changes. I mean, the Artcraft posts are one thing but when it comes to your own character, it becomes very personal, especially when you’ve played her since the beginning.
This made me quite nervous about my beloved race but after the female Draenei was revealed, I felt rather relieved. I can only hope we’ll get something similar for the Blood Elves and from Bashiok’s comment on the forums several days ago, I’m feeling hopeful.
It is a shock, and in pretty much every case I had liked the artcraft artwork but on seeing MY characters changed was not too happy. It’s like my husband came home one day and had plastic surgery done at work … and not in a good way, lol.
I know, it really is! :P
