New character models retain the iconic features, but refine them as necessary. The models also have a more consistent style.
Undead have bones sticking out, but they don't look great. The new version refined it. (They unveiled the progress on the Undead Male model)
The team looked at the existing model and decided what they wanted to maintain and what needed to be exaggerated.
They went 956 to 5408 polygons on the Gnomes. 130 to 196 bones. Texture resolution was 2 to 5x higher depending on the area of the body.

Don't worry, they don't like it either lol
Well I was talking about the new model. The shoulder bones look silly. He would not be able to move his arms if they where like that :lol:

I suppose I should've assumed the hair would also be getting an update, but I didn't even think of it! AND GOODNESS ARE THEY LOVELY.

Oh no, I don't want to go to bed in case they reveal Night Elves!

The detail on the Male Undead's face is excellent. The only thing I would hope for is that their posture is a little more upright.

Oh God, the female dwarves and gnomes look amazing! The expressions! No, it's no good, I need to see Night Elves now.

Did they say Blood Elves/Draenei weren't getting new models at all, or just that they'd be later?

Wasn't there a comment that all eight would be done, hopefully as many in time for launch as possible?

Now that I think about it, it does sound like some of them aren't finished yet, so I may as well hit the hay. But still, I want to see more.

Their FAQ on the page for the expansion specifically states Belves and Draenei will also be getting updates uvu My understanding is that they're just going to be the last ones to get them.

That's what I thought too, but then someone said they were confirmed not to have updates so I was just?????

But I keep seeing mentions of them just being late. Hopefully that's the case!

Well the only time I've heard someone say the BE and Spacegoats are not getting updates was on Tumblr and I'd trust the FAQ 100% more then Tumblr :lol:

Anyway I assume they'd be last in the list if they do get an update.

I have nothing useful to add right now. I just wanted somewhere to SCREAM MY DELIGHT because it's late here and no one's awake for me to spaz out about it with. >___< I have been waiting for this day for SO DAMNED LONG. Finally, character model upgrades! I'm specifically waiting to see undead females and, if the rumours are true, blood elf females. I've been wanting to play an undead female again for so long now but couldn't because... their model... ew. D: Also, if the tauren females look any good, I'd be tempted to play one of them too.

Getting bored with Mists of Pandaria quickly made me say I'd never go back to WoW. But depending on how this plays out, it might just bring me back.

No, don't strike this out. They NEED fixing. There's nothing right about them. Hopefully one day they might just go back down their 'furry' route.

Also did not see the undead males until now OMG they look amazing! I hope the females look just as nice!

Wow, I LOVE the face on the undead male! :O
And that last expression on the gnome female is hilarious. :P

They just said that all the old models up to and not including worgen and goblins would be updated, and maybe later the goblins and worgen would be too.

I'll be waiting on the highland, with its wonderful serenity.
Where the stars glow and the brooks flow, that's my way of life.
When the mountains on the highland, and the nature is surrounding me, when the wind blows, that's all I need.

Bare in mind this is all just OPINION, but really, the goblins and worgen don't *need* updating. They're pretty on par right now. But... the worgen females need *changing*. Completely. They were the biggest disappointment in any expansion so far to me, considering they made them look dopey as heck just because people were whining constantly about it. We've had enough punishment now Blizz, now give us proper females please. :/
