http://www.wowwiki.com/Talk:Draenei#Dranei_Facial_.22Tendrils.22"Tendrils" are common to many plant species, but are not found in mammalian species nor aquatic forms of life."Barbels" are common to some aquatic species, but are associated with the sense of taste and are not nearly as long as those of the facial appendages common to Draenei, nor have these ever been associated in Draenei as being associated with any of the five senses.They have NEVER been associated, lore-wise or in-game except by players, as "tendrils" and have ALWAYS been referred to merely as "facial appendages".And JUST IN CASE this isn't enough, consider:Watch The Burning Crusade trailer. Watch RIGHT WHEN THE DRAENEI PALADIN LIFTS THE EFFECTS OF THE GLYPH UPON HIMSELF!That's right...THEY ARE MOVING! It's not merely flopping around because of HIS movements - they're moving in many different directions when the glyph's effects take hold.So no, they aren't "tendrils". Yes, they can move. They may not be as articulate as tentacles from what we know...but we don't know exactly what they are or what they're used for now, do we? Why? Because that's never been discussed by Blizzard.Just doing my civic duty.

I can't say I've ever spent a long time thinking on them....but I still found that highly informative and interesting, and I wouldn't have thought to re-watch the BC trailer for them. Being way too focussed on tiny details at times... Thank you for taking the time to put out the information. :)

This... would be one of the reasons we casually omit them on our characters. Another would be to let them be more cross-genre and versatile.
