Mar 29th 2012 8:43AM I think Night Elves are the -only- Vanilla Alliance race to have animated faces when casting, attacking, getting hit, etc. It's probably because they were the last Alliance race to be developed. Humans, Dwarves, etc's expressions never ever change, even when dead and floating in a friggin' lake!!
I'm not sure about Horde... I think, possibly, the Forsaken may have animated faces. I think, though, Night Elves and Goblins were done dead last, out of all races. It's a shame they didn't go back before Vanilla Launch and spruce up the older models then to match the quality of the Night Elves, they'd have alot less work to do now, that's for sure.
Mar 29th 2012 8:38AM I'd bet $5 easy that they do have one color rope for Alliance and one for the Horde. That may seem unusual for some of you, but stop to remember this is WoW's first Neutral race, so there's likely going to be some things we see that we've never seen before, when it comes to player Races and telling them apart.
I'm still wondering how you're supposed to be able to tell an Alliance Pandaren from a Horde Pandaren... it just seems like BGs will be confusing as hell with this race until you see "red" (if it's red, it's dead) (just, as an example).
Mar 29th 2012 8:36AM Yeah it definitely seems like Dwarves didn't get them because they'd been reserved for the Pandaren all along. Blizzard has all this written out years in advance.
Mar 28th 2012 2:17PM Oh Anne, I love thee.
Now, off to the AH before anyone else reads this article.
Mar 28th 2012 1:30AM That's a good question. Let's ask Chris Metzen. Chris?
Metzen: "A (Pandarian) Wizard Did It!"

He can say what he wants. With the right gear, the right know-how and the proper approach, Warlocks will be tanking plenty of crap in Extreme Soloing of old raids, even more so than they do now.
They may not be able to tank current content as a Queued tank, but this will VASTLY increase what they can do in older content.
Mar 26th 2012 11:52AM Anne, you have a great voice, very given to video, narration or radio.
Secondly. Animated hair. Wait till you see this in Stormwind alongside your 2001 model Human. People will be rioting for new models at that point.
Mar 25th 2012 4:40PM Add me to the list of people who didn't get anyone to come back, even with the Scroll offer. They're just dead set against playing WoW again, though one did concede he liked the Cloud Serpent mount for Pandarens.
Mar 25th 2012 9:29AM Those "new" druid forms are damn nice, isn't they?
Glad I've held out on playing a Druid this long, and a Warlock, too.
