I feel your pain, Mr. McCurley. My night elf fire mage, simply by virtue of not being undead, will never be able to sport the badass shade of magenta that night elf DKs can get. And as a mildly psychotic engineer named after the greatest Final Fantasy villain ever, this upsets her. She tends to blow things up when she's upset. She's been upset since day one.^_^As for other hair-related concerns, I'd like a ponytail for male humans that doesn't bounce around like a small child who's eaten too much sugar whenever I run. I'd like the giant troll mohawks to be available to more races. I'd like pseudo-helmets that simply add an effect to your character's hair - the flaming halo from the Fire Festival is nifty, but I'd like my character's hair to actually be on fire; I think we're in the right patch for that sort of thing.Also, I'd like my hunter's pets to have some nifty animations for when they're idle. Cats should lay down next to you, wolves and dogs should sit at your side like the loyal friends they are, and so on. Crocolisks should 'play dead' with that awesome flipped-over animation, because it'd be hilarious to see your pet just flip over and pretend to die because you stood still for too long.

I'd like the loose ponytail for gnomes (which looks fine in the barbershop/standing still, to not make said gnome maiden look like a hunchback while running

I agree wholeheartedly. I'd love for Draenei characters to get a wider variety of colors. I would love the pink that the other races can get on my paladin.

Okay, I'll bite: Who is this "greatest Final Fantasy villain ever?"

Holy cow... I lol'd when I imagined the crocolisk flipping over for no real reason. Thank you for that!

I'm going to have FF3/6 music stuck in my head all day now.Which isn't a bad thing, really.

If your night elf mage (lol) was cool, she would have gotten herself kicked out with all the cool mages a few thousand years ago and would be able to have red hair*. Now she's stuck looking like a packet of grape koolaid and bouncing up and down like a moron.signed,a blood elf mage.*and a reduced lifespan, but let's not quibble over details.

If any other race on Azeroth could sport the trolls' magnificent crest, it would have to be dwarves. Because who wouldn't want to RP a Slayer, am I right? (Yes, Wildhammer tattoos would have to be implemented...)But on a less superficial (and back to original franchise) level, it just makes sense:* both races share a love of hunting (and bonuses with specific ranged weapons)* reunification of tribes / kingdoms has been a big deal for both races this expansion * they obviously get along (as NPCs anyway... Twilight Geolords and Darkmoon Faire and whatnot)* Frostmane trolls do rock the magnificent crest, so dwarf adventurers have been seeing that coif since level 3. * they're both ancient races, territorial, and stubborn. * they both enjoy the company of a good gnome (*cough*)* other good (and not so good) reasons that I haven't thought of yet.

You know what makes me mad?I was questing on my horde character in Stonetalon Mountains yesterday, and the Night Elf mobs there have that sweet magenta hair. I think it was female Darnassian Scout was the mob name?Why can these obviously not-undead NPCs have this, yet my awesome night elf druid can't? So much sadness.

I also feel your pain, sir. While I get it that they fit into the lore, the rather garish anime hair colors for night elves have never been my cup of tea (except for the silver, which almost looks normal). Blood elves can be blondes, brunettes or redheads as they prefer, so who's to say that the barbers of Azeroth haven't discovered magical dyes that can let a paying customer have whatever hair color they want?
