MMO Champion has datamined the Death Knight Tier 13 base model. Was it worth the wait? (huge version here).
Given how long we waited for this – its good. Not fantastic, not game changing, but certainly a good model set. It is hard to know how this will look on the various character models, as that often makes or breaks the sets too. But yup, good stuff. I’ll be after the set for both the dps and model reasons.
A huge thank you to mmo-champion for mining this, its been too long a wait. Continue reading
Seems a big ask, but I’d be keen to see what could be done to make the druid forms more mutable. The idea (which has been blundered around the forums for years) would be so that the armour and weapon selections that are made are somehow reflected on the models.
At the moment some of the models have small items of jewelry but nothing that would distinguish one cat from another. Could the models be altered to change to show a shoulder, helm, and cloak affect?
This would not have to mean adding a skullcap to a cat (because that could look darn silly), but instead we could see changes to the models to reflect the gear – akin to seeing a naked bear turning into an armoured war bear. Boomkin and Tree forms could still show cloaks, and maybe shoulders, and cats and bears could easily show different collars, etc.
It would have also been an alternate solution to the tree form being removed; if the tree would actually be somewhat customised.
Now this is a helm that fits the style of Wrath of the Lich King. Awesome.
News just in – WoWHead Blog has a post with some new armor models.
Link has all the nice models by category. There will be some new visual reasons to attack the content after all.
And wowhead has that cool 3d viewer, so you can really see the detail.
WoW Head guys have built a Profiler that does everything an Armoury tool should, and includes a 3d model of your character. Its worth a look as it gives you a great summary of the character.
Its a damn fine tool. By way of (selfish) exmple here is Mortigen my Death Knight.
I like a good transformation, and Brewfest allows you to take on the form of a Dark Iron Dwarf.
I went with the guildies to BRD to kill the Boss. Continue reading
