I'll just speak to the female draenei since that's what I play and have the most opinion on. Aside from just more polygons and higher-res textures, which are a given, I have a few things I'd like changed.First, I want a better posture. It looks really uncomfortable for them to be puffing out their chests as far as they can all the time; I'd just like my character to just stand straight for once and relax. Also, can she please stop glancing around constantly? She seems so paranoid. I'd like the frequency of those animations turned down a lot.The second thing is cloaks. I'm glad we can turn off capes, because they all look so stupid on draenei, especially the men. The cape just floats there above the tail, sticking out at a bizarre angle. Totally unnatural, totally stupid. I want the capes to flow straight down the back like they do for all the other races. Should be easier to do with a better posture, too. A tauren's tail doesn't get in the way of his cape, and neither should a draenei's.Thirdly, I'd like the eat/drink animation and the Map animation to get fixed. Draenei knock back drinks (and loaves of bread) so far, they almost bend over backwards. When I click to eat a feast, she sits down at the same time, which looks like it should make her fall over. The Map animation looks great when standing, but when mounted up, my character leans back really far with the map in her outstretched hands; it's ridiculous.Beyond that, I'd always appreciate more horn styles and hair styles, especially the kind of hair that animates. And in general, I hope one day that armor becomes more than just a texture. I know it's a tall order for the art team, but in a perfect world, the armor I wear would not be skin-tight, and would have more to it and actually change my silhouette like shoulder pieces, helms, and now belts do. Also, we've got dresses, but no skirts. And what about those lower-half capes that go from the hip down to the knee, but only in the back? I saw a few pieces of armor in TOR that did that and I really like it. Anyway, that's all. I'm not even talking about the character models anymore, so I'll stop.
