I'd love for Blizzard to remove the spine showing through cloaks on Undead models. Maybe make it optional somehow. It just never made any sense to me. I guess you could argue why the spine shows through a chest, but a cloak should absolutely cover it up. It's one of the reasons I never show a cloak on my undead characters. The feet and hands are far too spiky too. Fingers and toes come to an exaggerated point and it looks like I have claws instead. As a general thing I'd like to see for character models, it would be for mail and plate to look like it is on top of characters and not part of their skin. I'm not sure how to articulate this, but shoulder pieces sit on top of a character whereas a chest piece will merge with them and expand and contract as they breath. I've always found that to be irritating. One could make the argument that cloth and leather would do that, but mail and plate shouldn't.

I'd play an Undead if they fixed that. I'm sure it's a consequence of the model (at the time) and it wasn't intentional, they just didn't know how to fix it until China forced them to.Mail and Plate do indeed need to lose the "painted-on" look alot of it has. It's very noticable on larger player models, like the Tauren, or player models with oddly-shaped limbs (like the worgen or draenei).
