I'm not saying silhouettes are really NEEDED or that I'm in favor of them, but I think all these people saying they never look at silhouettes to figure out class/race are sort of missing the point of the silhouette. You're not supposed to have to actually stop and look to see what class or race the other person is. The entire point of a silhouette is so that once you see the person, you automatically know, "Hey, this is an orc so I should kill him, and he's a DK so that will affect my strategy." I think silhouettes are very effective in that regard, as evidenced by the fact that a lot of people don't even realize they serve a purpose. It's not supposed to be something you think about.Now, if silhouettes go away will that be terrible? Probably not, but it will definitely change the feel of WoW.
