The human male faces... Please, the human male faces...Oh lord, the sheer horror!!!

Yes I was thinking the same thing for the female human faces and their awful Lego hair ; )

Try it out, make a human male, zoom in on his face, scream "DURRRRRRR" and see how well it fits. Then notice that half those faces actually fit. Then cry.

Humans, definitely. Also, gnomes should be brought up to competitive polygon counts with their goblin rivals.

I say every pre-BC character model. I could live with every other model in the game remaining the way, and fewer new creatures if that's the kind of time crunch it took. We're more concerned with how our player-characters look than the stuff we're killing. Once it's dead we just move on and leave the corpse to disappear...we've been staring at our faces (which, due to age, can now be classified as "derpy derp") for years, and will likely continue to do so. They are in DESPERATE need of an upgrade.

*remaining the way [it is]

Most definatly! Female Dwarf faces PLEASE! It is hell playing one until you can loot yourself a full helmet that covers the face. Having to stay off the main road and not levelling during peak server hours, constantly strafing through high traffic areas so no one can see it.Consumables can only get you so far and grouping up is out of the question, God forbid someone see's that portrait.

While we are changing the faces could we maybe make it so that not every single NPC is white? That always bugged me.

Mike: Every PRE-WRATH character model you mean? The TBC races aren't that shiny looking anymore either, of course they're somewhat more defined than the vanilla races but all playable character models should be brought up to snuff to the level of Worgen/druid forms.I'm secretly hoping the last surprise we'll get before cata hits is that all races WILL get a facelift either by the time Cata launches or during the run of Cata. Because after seeing Varian and the Vrykul models, It'd be criminal not to do that in due time - moreover it'd be pretty criminal to leave the human model the same with the Gilneans, seeing as the human model is just... Just.. And the Worgen model is goddamn sexy in comparison with detail and roundness. And considering we've gotten Lady Sylvanas a new, proper look after years of being a smelly Nelf placeholder, It's sweetly whispering to me that TBC races will get some love too.Maybe I'm just naive though. But I'll keep my fingers crossed that Blizzard will drop the hammer on these news upon Cataclysm release.

I'd like to put in my vote for this as well.Humans by far need an upgrade, they are so ugly. Their faces are horrible and their body builds are bad and over exaggerated. The vrykul are so great looking, humans should look more like them.All the other characters need to be smoothed out as well. I'm tired of my Night elf having blocks in her hair. I wish she looked more like Lurielle, the elf/deer frost nymph in Howling Fjord.
