One of the reasons wow needs a serious graphical overhaul. Some of the animations are seriously outdated. We have better collision detection these days and some character models are in serious need of a major overhaul, Humans being the prime example here. It still looks like they crapped their pants when they run.- So yeah, updated animations, such as riding on a horse... it just looks wooden, certain spell casting animations, running animations etc. - Updated character models and an option to acually model a model. Some characters only have like three options for a category... you can't adjust the parameters either. Aion does a good job of customization, which I find lacking in WoW. It really should be a broader aspect. We're very limited, in my opinion.Anyway, Humans particularly look bad. Bad model, bad animations. Trolls have very few options to change looks as well. Vanilla WoW models need updates, desperately. - Also, updated collision detection. Swords going throug capes, tabards tucked in, haircuts cut off when wearing helmets. I can understand some collisions failures, but it is like they're not even trying.I am not saying WoW should look like Aion, or FF XIV, but the game is several years old now. An upgraded graphical system would be nice for Vanilla WoW. Sure, WotLK upgraded spell animations and NPC models quite a lot, as well as having great design overall, but the humans still looked poor. Riding a horse still looked wooden and swords still sliced through capes like it was butter. WoW needs a major graphical overhaul in terms of character design, customization, animation and collision detection. Seriously, WoW is almost 6 years old.
