God yes, Blizzard, please update the character models. Human and orc models are starting to look like the sprites from FF7.Vanilla models were dated an expansion ago.

Also you know things are bad when FFXI has better character models than WoW--- and you can run FFXI on a PS2.Upgrades please.

THIS. Seriously, switching between my Blood Elves and my Trolls it's...super obvious which model was designed when. And with Goblins coming the discrepancy will be even worse if they don't address it. Besides, I just can't see Blizzard putting all this amazing work into revamping the old world and sticking those old, dated vanilla models in them. It'd be like sticking the old 8-track player from your '76 Deuce into a brand new Lotus.(Speaking of Square, as an aside, it's pretty goddamned sad that every time I see your handle my brain leaps immediately to Vagrant Story rather than the original spoony Bard. XD)

lol I remember leaving FFXI for WoW and thinking how I was taking a hit on how things looked. FFXI looked very pretty for the time and WoW more cartoon-like.It's been a few years now and it's quite sad to say that even wrath doesn't seem on par with the PS2 based game.For the love of WoW, Blizzard please, give WoW a overhaul and let my monster of PC do more then purr when I play.Oh and for all those trolls out there /comfort, I know your pain, my wife complains about the feet whenever she plays her troll.

You know, I used to play FFXI as well, and I think WoW looks infinitely better. FFXI may have better models, but its art direction is generic at best, and the armor designs are atrocious. There are some bad ones in wow, but I have one word: subligar. Zodiac subligar on men in particular.WoW gives a feeling of whimsy and fantasy that FFXI just doesn't match, and has a far superior art direction. However, I'm not saying this excuses Blizzard from upgrading its models. Rather, how amazing would WoW look by todays standards? Likely never to happen, but the models? They could at least be on BC standards...
