Indeed they can :) My argument is that I prefer the current style body shape much more than the alpha one. The physiology terms were just for describing the differences, not to imply they had to stick to human ideals :)

I hope they take a look at Spiritbinder's tweaks. At first I was afraid their necks were melting and Draenei would turn into Blemmyes.

Considering that the alpha male draenei is SO different from the live one, I get the feeling that that model is even more alpha than the others and that all those things will be fixed. If not, my little baby monk may have to get rerolled (and he's only my second male character ever, so that would be very very sad haha)

Meanwhile, when I was playing with MMOC's modelviewer last night, the hairstyle that came up for female NE was the sort of "loose/low braid/ponytail" one they inherited from female dwarves (that you may recall I recoiled in horror from seeing. or you may not because I can't remember if I was actually being active here when they showed it off, haha).

ImageImage

It looks SO much better, though it's still got a long way to go (and I think they would benefit from either creating a custom texture to get that loose braid feeling, or just giving up on it being a braid and just having it be a looose/low ponytail sans braid). I hope the one that's still on the WoD page on the blizzard site gets updated as well :|

No kidding, I keep going back to mmo-champ and wowhead just to look at their expressions and gOSH I can't get enough of them all. *_* So excited to see even more (female tauren is going to blow me away at the rate this is all going like goodbye friends there I go off to the twisting nether)

I hope that one day we can change the beefiness of our characters. I love the male draenei's legs and tail but I can never get over his chest.
It would be nice to have a thinner model for casters. Something like this.

No no no no no.

That...that thing is ugly. D: A million times no. That looks like a teen with a big head or a human trying to cosplay a draenei. Draenei men also have broad shoulders. That edit removed it and now it looks all wrong. My fiance plays a male draenei and he didn't like the edit either. He said arms are too long, head is too big, and the shoulders lost their broadness. He likes what Blizz did with them. Blizz fixed the shoulders with them so shoulder plates aren't hovering and they're gonna hopefully fix the females too.

@Wain - I know but I was just pointing it out due to the images of humans popping up in the comparison, which doesn't hold much value with an alien race. The mass effect series has lots of alien races and they've all got different physiologies.

There's one problem with the new Draenei males that I haven't seen mentioned here but have seen elsewhere. It's how the shoulders sit. Basically, the majestic broad shoulders got shrunk, at least as how the shoulderplates sit on them. Much less impressive. They did float some before, but they went too far with it.

I hated that they floated. I'm glad they fixed that. I don't considering floating to be majestic.

Yeah, but now they look like someone pushed them into the neck, and the angle they sit at changed.

Look at this pic.. somewhere in the middle might be good, but not as far as they went.

Whoa yeah...crunched in.

Anyone else a lil bugged by the way the hooves look? Such an abrupt stop...no feathering...I keep hoping they'll add feathers to the hooves.

Arghhh I really hope they add the feathering back. I find the smooth skin look to be really... uncomfortable. x.x

And huh! The shoulders are kind of crunched. I highly, highly suspect that's a product of early models, though, because they haven't shown any intention to change that kind of thing.

(also I would KILL for thinner, less bulky draenei. Like what Azure posted but with thinner legs, too. Something a little more than their faction leader! ..who I cannot remember the name of.)

Lupis, I think you mean Velen. He's thin because he's old. You do tend to lose muscle when you age. XD

Mm, male draenei have always been too top heavy for my tastes. I'd absolutely love a slimmer version, then I might actually try to play one, but currently they're one of my least favourite models. The revamp just seems to have amplified the top heavy look where I was hoping they might have adjusted it a bit. Ah well, I'll just continue not having any male draenei. :)

I'm eager to see trolls and blood elves now, I don't care which gender, as they're the only two races we've seen nothing of so far! I'm really excited about female tauren too though, I have a feeling I might finally be able to roll one after their revamp!

The one thing I DO really like about the male draenei is they finally FINALLY FINALLYYYYYOMFG fixed their hoof colors so they match like the females' do.

I absolutely love the green skintone but it looked so freakish with purple hooves I never took it. It will be a joy to have a green draenei with green hooves at long long last.

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

It's probably more work than they're willing to take on right now, given how hard it is just to get new overall looks for all the races, but your idea has a lot of merit. Bulkier builds of races for warrior/paladin classes, thinner builds for caster classes, hunters/shaman/monks somewhere in between. It's a rather interesting idea :)
