When World of Warcraft: Shadowlands launched, there was with a buffet of character customization choices for people, night time elves, orcs, and undead. Nevertheless, a couple of of the races — particularly the sport’s Allied Races, which don’t have their very own beginning zone and may solely be unlocked in the long run sport — fell slightly brief. Blizzard said that they’d not be revisiting the difficulty throughout Shadowlands, but it surely seems to be like that’s about to vary. On Thursday, a group supervisor shared the next data on the official Blizzard boards.
Our characters in sport are a digital illustration of who we’re in Azeroth and having extra character customization choices to design our characters helps us really feel nearer to them. Shadowlands introduced an entire array of latest customization choices to the participant races in World of Warcraft, however there have been a couple of of the Allied Races that didn’t get as a lot consideration as the remaining.
Again at BlizzConline in February, we said that we had no plans so as to add further customization choices till after Shadowlands, however after listening to the passionate suggestions across the difficulty, we seemed into whether or not we may implement extra choices sooner. We’re happy to announce that 9.1.5 will introduce new character customization choices for Nightborne and Lightforged Draenei which embrace: new hair kinds, hair colours, facial hair, pores and skin colours, equipment, horns, tail size, tattoos, and extra!
Along with new customization choices for Lightforged Draenei and Nightborne, 9.1.5 can even introduce different cosmetics reminiscent of:
Ear Dimension choices for Void Elves
New Journey Kinds for Druids
New Soulshapes for Evening Fae
New Crittershapes to unlock: Soulshape into an lovable squirrel or different small critters. Be aware: As a consequence of their tiny appearances, they’re solely usable in rested areas.
Choice to Soulshape and Crittershape into randomly collected appearances.
We’ll be persevering with to develop our character customization sooner or later, with our sights set on Highmountain Tauren subsequent.
That is welcome information for role-players and Legion followers, each of whom have been disillusioned with missing customization choices. The Nightborne have been some extent of competition for World of Warcraft followers since they had been added on the finish of Legion and starting of Battle for Azeroth, as they solely had a scant handful of faces, hairstyles, and hair colours. It seems to be as if gamers will have the ability to combine issues up slightly extra, which is nice for such a preferred race.
It stays to be seen when Patch 9.1.5 might be launched, or what different content material it consists of. Many followers are stepping away from World of Warcraft solely, nonetheless.
