6 New Character Slots & Customization Options in Battle for Azeroth

Recommended Posts

vg0x46y.jpg

All players will get six additional characters slots per server to create room for Allied races and more customization options are coming for Orcs and possibly Trolls!

Allied Races [More Info]

Six allied races will be available in Battle for Azeroth. All players will be given six additional character slots per server, so there's no need to delete existing characters!

Character Customization

The Barber Shop will soon be updated with additional customization options for Orcs and possibly Trolls. In the new expansion, we'll be able to choose between a hunched or an upright character. If you wonder how an upright Orc will look like, check out Thrall's model below.

Note that the new Zandalari Trolls are standing straight.

Blizzard agreed that current customization options feel lackluster and they are working on improvements.

Goblins & Worgen Skins

The team is working on new skins for both races, but they won't be ready for Patch 8.0. Worgen will also be given more facial features to make them look fierce.

unless you're at...or approaching...the 50 characters overall limit. Which should also be raised. It's been thirteen years. A lot of alts can be created in that length of time.

The chiropractor is too afraid to touch undead lest they break them even more.

lol. Speaking of that, I really hope they give us some sort of customisation option to remove the bones poking through (like the Chinese client).

Blizz can have the time they need for the worgen skins, I just wished they added the non hunch version (straight as they are when dancing) in the patch..

Would be really nice if we could have more customizations for all the races. Like more beard variations for Dwarves, because why the fuck not? Or even being able to have characters at different heights, because it is really weird how everyone has the very same height.

Would be cool if we had different skins for the different Orc clans. Would love to have the Dragonmaw appearance.

So i have a theory: if Blizz says they are planning on releasing more Allied Races as they drop patches, I'm guessing that the Horde will reach out to the WOD Draenor Orcs and that they will provide the skins that we've been wanting all these years. Like each skin option, instead of shades, would be the skin color of the various clans.

(Realistically-speaking tho, tbh I'll just be filling the extra 12 slots with more Worgen.)

really? that ugly dogs? why?

ok, i'm going to give you some credit, they are better than humans (smell a little worse, but isn't THAT bad).  I love dogs, but thats why I have pets. 

I'm just kidding ofc, i don't want to hurn anyone feelings. But, I still thing that, have all chars from the same race is a boring decition.

I agree with the idea to implant draenor 's orcs models, that will be so cool if Blizzard make them.

For the Forsakens, I imagine that they can introduce dark rangers elves and humans skins like Venonara and Nathanos to change to the classicals skins of undeads.

The same could be said about someone who doesn't particularly like anything and just has a little bit of everything.

(Also I can tell you have never smelled some of those humans... whew)

Lore-wise this is the gnome you play as when you pick Gnome warrior.

      DesMephisto is back (or, more accurately, he never left, as he constantly strives to improve his leveling speeds), and he's gotten his speed record for 10-50 Shadowlands leveling significantly down from his last attempt! 3 hours and 56 minutes (or 3 h 37 min, if you remove the "screwing around" parts) is all it took to get to the equivalent of today's level 120, using Chromie time in Warlords of Draenor, beating the previous best we reported by over an hour and a half.

      Now, it's important to mention that Blizzard have stated in interviews that the current XP rates and leveling speeds on Alpha aren't final and are very rough at the moment, but it's till great to see players going for these speed records nonetheless.
      And here's the last minute or so of the leveling process, and you can check out the whole thing below as well:


      You can also check out our recent interview with the man himself, where he goes into all the many recent achievements he's had, from the 46 max level warriors, to the speed leveling, Autism charity, Guinness World Record and more.

      Method ran Ny'alotha on Heroic difficulty with a raid comprised of 29 Mages and one Demon Hunter, and while they downed all the bosses including N'Zoth, the clear highlight is Dresta'gath that has been defeated in just 22 seconds.
      You can watch the Pyroblast shower and Dresta'gath's decreasing health bar in the following video:

      3D Artist Dronmo has created a jungle in Unreal Engine 4 inspired by Stranglethorn Vale.
      Here's a comparison of the Stranglethorn Vale in World of Warcraft and the recreated version of the zone in Unreal Engine 4 taken from ArtStation.

      Here's another comparison of the zone.

      The artist teamed up with his friend, a guitar virtuoso, who produced ambient relaxing music for the video.
