You forgot that the female worgen have completely different eyes. In fact, if you look closely? Their iris is copy pasted from the human female. One of the reason they are so glazed looking is because they are a much older and lower resolution.Not to mention the males look like wolves, and the females have the head of toy breeds. And how the female worgen have the biggest breasts (talking about proportion) of any other race in-game. Oh, and the make up. The worgen female has thicker eyeshadow then any other race in-game, on every face. Even human females don't have that much make-up.../sighI tried. I really tried to play on. But somewhere between the half-lidded, make-up ridden eyes and the toy puppy head, and the lack of fiercely glowing eyes, I deleted it with a vengence and rolled male.I play a troll female, I am used to sexual dimorphism. But this? This borders on insulting. It's like she was smacked repeatedly with a 'I'M A GURL!' stick./grumbles/sighsThen again, out of my 3 troll females none of them have the pretty face... so maybe it's just the sheer lack of options we get with the worgen ladies.Goblins ftw, btw./goes back to playing her 4 goblin ladies

I race change my night elf to one, because...well for me its a lesser of two evils. I was a druid, and female night elfs have more cons then good for me. that being said though my biggest problems with the female worgen are 1. EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!2. snarl. though if some day they redo the customization of wow, i would love to be able to...oh...idk pick the ACTUAL worgen eyes? geez sexual whatever aside, there is NO reason for a races eyeballs to be different between genders.

I am with you there. Despite the other problems with the model, I would have rolled a female Worgen if only they'd had the same awesome glowing eyes as the male model. As it stands, the only way I will ever play one is if I roll up another death knight.

You are so right about the eyes. I agree with everything you've said, though. I don't understand why the female worgen has such a distinctly different face shape than the males, either. When you look at a male and female, irl, we look similar, but different. Our faces are very similar, although females are just more feminine. We don't usually have entirely different looking faces, though. The male and female worgen have entirely different eyes. Why? I don't know about you, but I've never walked down the street only to see a guy whose eyes are drastically different than mine. His might be a different color, but his don't glow while mine do or something crazy like that. Why do the male worgens' eyes glow, but not the female's? How does this make the females more feminine? I feel like Blizzard just gave up on the female model. Unless we see changes in a future patch, I really feel like they just gave up or that they're not taking the opinions of the players all that seriously. And, that's pretty frustrating.

I noticed their disproportionate breasts first off, as well. They're the size of her head, bar the muzzle, and I can't imagine that's any less comfortable than the massive crouch that the male trolls suffer.

I just finished the worgen start zone with my new druid. All of my toons are female, I'm not sure why.. I guess I created the first one (a ne druid) as a little avatar of myself, and the trend stayed. I don't like the worgen female model, I didn't like it the first time I saw it. I thought she looked like bambi.. small head, HUGE eyes and lashes. But I chose female because, well.. its something I do. Its kind of growing on me though.Normally I'd be thinking that her armor should cover more (how long did my human priest look like less than priestly in her halter top and red stripper boots), but funny how on a worgen female it looks like they just.. work. Not in a woah sexy kind of way, but more in an oh crap I fursploded through my armor kind of way. I wouldn't say its "awesome" by any stretch, but its.. ok.

I agree with you so frequently, and right now is no different. I was never enthused about the worgen all that much but I hate the execution.Some amount of sexual dimorphism is interesting. I like that some races have more and some have less. That gnomes and goblins are pretty similar, that elves are arguably similar-ish, and that something like the Draenei have a bit more. I don't think it is inherently a bad thing, it just has to be handled well.But the worgen... oof. I saw one drop down into the mount animation today while I was questing, and I just couldn't handle it. It looks awful. I'm so glad to be Horde, so I don't have to deal with that in my raid.

I did exactly the same thing; I rolled a female worgen first, because i generally roll female chars; i have females in every race, but only a couple of males. But after i gained a few levels, logged and played another char. When i went to go back to my worgen lady, i just... stared at her for awhile on the char select screen. i stared... and i realised i just couldn't do it. For me, its how vulpine they are that ruined it the most. I wanted my powerful wolf-woman to... well... look like a wolf. not a grey fox. those eyes are also terribly unsettling though. and i wish if she was going to snarl all the time, she'd put some effort into it.

@Evelinda"and i wish if she was going to snarl all the time, she'd put some effort into it."I gigglesnorted, because I've always thought the female worgen didn't look like she was viciously snarling or even scowling in an aggressive manor. It just looks like she's got something that smells unpleasant smeared under her nose.
