The animation itself might be high quality, but the animations themselves leave a lot to be desired, IMO. The emotes just seem like they're completely lacking in personality compared to female Goblins, they feel like generic attempts at badassery. Only the roar really seemed cool to me. Their normal run just seems like a cleaned up version of the clunky female Tauren run that's prevented me from getting a druid past level 5 all these years, and Running Wild looks awkward with weapons equipped (though it does look a lot better with them off). The casting animations just brought to mind that famous film scene where the guy flails showing off with the scimitar and Indy pulls out a gun and shoots him. And not in the good way. While I think it's an improvement from the male casting animations, I don't think that's saying a whole lot.I was going to roll a Worgen just to experience the starting zone, but I don't know if I'm even bothering that much now. I guess I'm in the minority on this one but I'm really disappointed in how they've turned out. I hope the Alliance folks who actually have to stare at these models like them; personally, I'm just that more thrilled we got Goblins.
