    Uh... guys.
    Native Americans were actually white people from Jerusalem. I thought this was common knowledge?

    And what "old human" textures were mentioned? Did Humans use to look better than before?

    Also, moar spoiler on Deadmines, don't read if you don't like spoilahs
    Vancleef's Daughter is end boss, two headed ogre mage and Admiral worgen guy are all new bosses, probably replacing Vancleef, Ogre bruiser guy and Smite, respectively.

    Oh, is this where the Marx references come in? I remember that all of Westfall basically leads to VC, but I never bother to really read quest text, even now. >_>

    What you don't realize is, The Horde is where the Alliance puts all the freaks and the drug addicts.
    Ugly Orcs, Rotting Undead, Hideous Trolls, Two-Legged Cattle.

    They used to be cool with Blood Elves, til they started snorting lines of mana dust off the asses of Night Elf hookers. You just can't trust a magic addict with your Night Elf Hookers. Something had to be done.

    In the 1800's, a lot of people believed that Native Americans were descended from the '10 lost tribes of Israel'. I believe (but am too lazy to wikipedia it) that this theory was founded by or publicized by Spencer, one of the leading figures of the early eugenics movement.

    Mormons believe something even stranger, something about native americans being the survivors of a giant evil empire that wiped out the first kingdom of god, or something like that.

    Also, why aren't the people who want to play "pretty" male characters being accommodated? Heck, even the belf males got beefed up during the beta, before they were (ever-so-slightly) sleeker and thinner.

    Trolls aren't pretty. That's pretty much the classic definition of a troll, some kind of hideous monster that lives under a bridge somewhere where it can leech free wireless internet access. Okay, maybe that last part isn't part of the classic definition of troll, but still. They aint pretty, son.

    There's no race like that on Alliance, which is traditionally the pretty faction. Where all the pretty boys gone? Customization and such should be pretty important in an MMO, and that is an area where I've always felt that WoW fails miserably at.

    I would posit that the number of women who want to be hideous monsters mass murdering the countryside is drastically lower than the number of women who want to play sexy characters... mass murdering the countryside. Add in the number of male players who also like playing as sexy characters mass murdering the countryside and it becomes pretty clear, from a maximizing profit standpoint, which group to cater to.

    I'm more curious why they don't do both though.I presume it has something to do with like, having to do a whole new set of armor textures for, say, hunchbacked female trolls or flat chested tauren women, but I am no graphics designer.

    This phenomenon isn't limited to mmo's either. Me and my friends are still wtfing over why wotc decided that reptiles, plants and psychic rocks needed breasts, but so it goes. I guess to put it another way, This is a game, and people play it to enjoy themselves. If most of the female fanbase wouldn't want to play ugly characters, then why make all troll females ugly? For the sake of lore and logic? Fuck that noise I say, realism should always take a back seat to fun.

    It's different in WoW. Trolls are Blue Voodoo-loving Jamaicans with tusks.

    And some people want to play a pretty blue jamaican.
    Also, why aren't the people who want to play "pretty" male characters being accommodated? Heck, even the belf males got beefed up during the beta, before they were (ever-so-slightly) sleeker and thinner.

    Night Elves, remember?

    And yeah, sometimes their are distinctions between sides. Shit, some people said BEs were brought in to give the Horde a "pretty" race.


    I don't get what's so hard to understand here. People like to play pretty characters sometimes. And they ESPECIALLY like to play pretty characters when they play female characters.

    The #1 complaint about the old school Troll or Tauren designs was that they weren't pretty.

    Night elf male physiques are fucking goofy and gross. Their bodies are slender, legs are close together and waist really small, but then all of a sudden at the torso they bloom out to each side while still remaining slender. And then they crane their neck forward.

    Remember when mage t8 was pants instead of a robe? People as a general rule hated it, and even if they didn't, their guildmates(ME) made fun of how stupid they looked all the time. Robes are about the best they can do for casters. The differentiating factors are the helms/shoulders. Warlock T10 is amazing looking, and it's a robe.

    Has there been any word on how they're handling flying in the old world in relation to the new areas + Draenei/Belf starting area?

    I really hope they are all put on the same server so you can just fly into them without having to go through a stupid loading screen. It really wouldn't be all that hard to keep the tiny fraction of players who didn't buy the expansions out (if you even wanted to bother), any of the following would work:
    *Phasing makes all the land entrances unavailable (ie. That fallen tree is once again blocking the path from EPL to Ghostlands if you don't have tBC, any caves leading to Hyjal are sealed if you don't have Cata, etc.) and gaining access to Old World flying requires the expansion.
    *Apply the "No Man's Land" debuff that is currently in Hyjal to the expansion zones and have it only trigger for people present that don't have the expansion.
    *Let them in, but all quest givers and vendors and such have a flag set so that they'll only talk to the people who have the expansion.
    *Just flat out put up invisible walls for the expansionless. They certainly didn't mind putting that invisible wall around Black Temple for no good reason.

    Basically I just want to be able to freely fly around the Eastern Kingdoms without having to run into dumb loading screens because Blizzard is afraid that the very small amount of people who don't buy the expansion might get to see a portion of what that expansion offers.

    Night elf male physiques are fucking goofy and gross. Their bodies are slender, legs are close together and waist really small, but then all of a sudden at the torso they bloom out to each side while still remaining slender. And then they crane their neck forward.

    This was why I never rolled NE male. They looked gangly and an odd comparison to the female model and the other males available in the game. Never liked how they looked, even in combat when they get their battle stance on and stretch themselves out.

    Because its dumb?

    I've never really understood what people see in stripper armor.

    Robes robes robes robes robes OKAY WE GET IT. How about some creativity? It doesn't have to show skin.

    Remember when mage t8 was pants instead of a robe? People as a general rule hated it, and even if they didn't, their guildmates(ME) made fun of how stupid they looked all the time. Robes are about the best they can do for casters. The differentiating factors are the helms/shoulders. Warlock T10 is amazing looking, and it's a robe.

    I wish Blizzard would realize they can play around with alpha channels for robes and make a robe that goes down to, like, the knees or something, or has cut-out designs in it, or anything. It can still be a robe, but just show off your pants or something.
