On a another note, I understand the convenience, but why do they always use human male models? I mean, human males don't even need, say, a shaman or druid set, so why "fit" them for it, you know?Then again, if it was any other race people would be like: "They used Tauren for druid model not NE!" and they look so different, I understand the problem there...anyway lets us return to/drool

Well, I believe there's a lot of evidence to back up the idea that white males are the default for just about everything conceivable and that any application that needs an icon that represents "person" it will use something that looks white and male. I guess this is just taking that one step further- that in a world of other races, the default is still the white human male. I mean, they could come up with a set- male orcs are the default DKs, female night elves the default Druids... they could even use the armory data they must have to find the most common gender/race combination for that class to actually give a majority the idea what their character would look like.

Mage looks like a Blue Jawa to me.

Totally agree. I might actually have to learn to PvP so I can get this stuff.What do you know, a helm I might not hide!

Eddy,While designing armor sets, it's actually good if they use the same model to test them on. That way they can ensure that the armor sets are unique in and of themselves, not just based on the likely model that will be wearing them. Assumably, this is a good way to show off that variety to us as well...
