I have a list!• Better, more realistic textures across the board.• An update to the general quality of the model, meaning more polygons. Ever looked at a tauren's fingers? They look like blocky sausages.• More expressive animation. Goblins and Pandaren have great facial expressions that actually change to reflect whatever emote they're doing. Compare this to many of the older races that look the same no matter what. Also, everyone should be able to blink.• Better general and combat animations for many of the races. Female tauren and female trolls have clumsy looking melee animations, and female tauren casting animations are boring as hell. I should probably just start a subsection for female tauren changes. ;) A lot of the jump animations irritate me, with flailing, clumsy looking arms (again, tauren, but also orcs, and trolls. Probably some alliance side, but I play mostly horde). Some attack animations are GREAT. I love the way nelf females and forsaken females look during melee combat. I would like for all races to have similar levels are fluid movement while attacking. • More face options. Female tauren and female trolls have like...four each. FOUR!• More hairstyle options. If I want a more punk looking blood elf (I do, btw) or a tauren with a mohawk, or a belf guy with short hair (and not the current one that's available because that looks awful) please let me have one.I have some specific thoughts for tauren, particularly the females, since that is my main.• Please get rid of that horrible squashed spider on the forehead and offer some real bangs. I can't stand how that thing looks, and I usually try to cover it up with a helm, which is also a challenge because most helms look absurd on a tauren. • Along those lines, I would love it if helms that look like hoods actually looked like...hoods on my druid, instead of her having her head crammed into a tiny bag.• I don't feel like the run animation for either sex works very well. Tauren are gigantic, and I really wish the male run conveyed more of a sense of weight to it. Female run is just clumsy. I get that their gigantic cow people, but our characters are also adventurers who spend their lives running all over the world, combatting evil. They could look a little more fluid doing it.• I mentioned more face options, and I'll say it again here. • While we're at it, I would adore a new character voice for female tauren. ;)Mostly I think the older races need some polish so they don't look so clumsy. If their models had the level of detail and articulation that the new ones have, it would help tremendously.

Agreed on the short hair thing.I want practical, decent looking short hair. Not having to look like Goku four episodes into the battle with Frieza.
