Senior 3D Artist Tamara Bakhlycheva recently shared her impressive artwork of High Inquisitor Sally Whitmane on Artstation.

Sally Whitemane is the latest Warcraft Hero to join the Nexus and she should be up on PTR next week. In the meantime, let's take a look at the awesome work of the Blizzard Art Team!

It's not about how much skin that is exposed, but about the way it is exposed. I agree with Teufel's sentiment in that Whitemane definately can use a more modest skin - a fully robed witch, anyone? Might definately be more appealing to some people to have a no-nonsense skin with pretty much zero sex appeal.

90% of the girls walk in bikini like dresses in town? I doubt it.

I agree with you. But I was referring to his "slut" exaggeration 😉

I think your understanding of "bikini" word is wrong. Here, I googled it for you. If this is the same for you as skin we are talking about then I have nothing else to say :]

Fair enough 🙂

While I agree with you on what you said to SleepySheepy, don't you think it's actually flat out worse than a bikini? It is a crossover between an evil witch and the common depiction of a dominatrix...

You do know this is how the character allways looked like in the original dungeon in WoW?:

old model

 

google high inquisitor whitemane images you will find art and cosplay depicting her like this. 

They stayed true to her depiction in the game. I reckon if they changed her you would have more people raging about it.

That's why I said she needs a skin with pants, I didn't mean she needs those by default. Goddamit, look at Alexstraza, her WoW in-game model has bikini on, yet her HotS models doesn't. I don't see any complaints, and IMO Alex's HotS model is something done right in a lot of ways.

Whitemane is a leader of the zealous inquisition-like organization, and the Scarlet Order is depicted as perverted virtue,s rather than outright having all the vices in the world. There is zero reason for her to be dressing like a whore, other than oversexualization by the designers for whoever is into that kind of stuff, completely killing the immersion.

I'm of mixed opinions of the "sexualization" here myself, but nevermind your condescending, sexist interpretation of women's attire - the "immersion" argument is 100% a moot point for a game in which Blizzard characters from all their big franchises cross over to kill each other in cosplay and pajamas.

What does that matter? Where has it been confirmed that the Scarlet Crusade(or any other "religious" organization in the Warcraft universe for that matter) share the same values as a real life zealous religious organization? They clearly don't. Whitemane isn't the only "higher up" priest character wearing this type of attire. There's also Argent Confessor Paletress, and there's probably more of them. It doesn't seem so out of place in this world.

Really? First of all as darkinchworm stated complaining about immersion in HotS is downright ridiculous and if we're talking about Warcraft i have to say that it is almost just as ridiculous that with all the absolutely out of this world absurd nonsense we encounter in Warcraft, the thing that breaks your immersion is the exposed thighs of a couple of characters. Come on now.

That's her outfit in WoW...

People hated the changes to Alexstraza's model. Using her as an example is a poor choice. They wanted her to look like the character they knew, not the placating revision we received.

Registered to point out that the first guy who started slut-shaming also has an avatar of a guy doing black face so I think that speaks for itself.

A woman designed this character model and it's based off of the same model used in WoW.

Forigve me, please, I'll make sure to ask your permission next time I'll want to use a photo of myself somewhere. Also, I suggest turning on whatever color-blind mode you should be using since it isn't even close to being black.

Really? Well, then, narrow-mindness of those 'people' is out of question if they want another default blood elf in bikini and call it 'a character'. Thanks for clearing that up.

I agree, but more due to her realistic hips and legs compared to the model she has in WoW.

"People" also went utter apeshit over Sylvanas putting on a breastplate when she got a new model in Legion, it hardly means they are right.

Wow, her butt.

It is nice... but not as nice as Alextrazsa or Tyrande who are the best bodies in the game by far. (I mean those hips on Alex... whoo! ❤️)

 It's about as nice most of the other girls. It's just more exposed 😉 (Although one or two of the Star Princess Li-Ming's skirts are really sheer and you can see her panties and cheeks really well if you spin her around and look. 😄 )

This is a good point. Also notice he's only ever made 5 posts, and 3 of them are in this thread. So I think he's trying to push people's buttons with his comments. And seeing as so many people have responded to him and he's basically stolen away the focus of the original post, I'd say mission accomplished on his part.

Although to play devil's advocate for him, his avatar image does look a bit more like a thief with his face painted black to keep him disguised better in the dark. Cause the lips aren't painted up pink and exaggerated like in most blackface. He's just grinning a big teethy grin with some pearly whites. And the hat and jacket look more like a burglar then some doing 'blackface'

Tyrande now has a breezy loincloth friend! With that length, we might be able to wrap it over her shoulder if you turn her model fast enough.

I'd say it's a little thing designers did, wider hips is in many cultures signify a woman that's good at carrying children. Since Alexstrazsa considers herself to be a 'mother' and a caretaker of all things living, that's a really subtle and clever change in her design.

Oh now this I most definitely agree with! ❤️ Alex is the (D)MILF of my heart. Please Alex, take care with me ❤️, I'm fragile 😥. But I'll forgive you if you break me some while you're at it 😉😄❤️

Look, I'd be fine if it was just exposed thighs. But come on, am I only one not blind enough to see that's not 'just' thighs?
This might as well be that new underwear model where it basically covers "private triangle". (yes, that exists).

And before someone says "Why are you afraid of revealing body?", let's go the other and give every single female character as much exposure as we can. See how it diminishes value of every character, especially those where it fits them? (Alexstrasza).

And good job to Blizzard and model creator, they really struck a perfect place where half of community defends it, other doesn't.
It's like a well hidden clickbait title.

No point in me posting here again, like I said, I'd have preffered if they gave her model that's same as art for teaser.
Less exposed, yet more attractive, at least from my perspective.

      Mastery Rings are a new feature that was added to the game in the latest balance update. They are the successor to legacy Mastery Skins that existed back then. When you reach level 15 and 25 with a certain Hero, you will be able to purchase these augmented rings for 5,000 Gold each.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re adding a new feature to Heroes of the Storm that will allow you to charge into battle with an extra bit of flair: introducing Mastery Rings!
      Reaching level 15 with a hero you own will unlock the ability to use gold to purchase a Mastery Ring for that hero, which will be displayed in game as an extra adornment of your hero’s regular selection circle. Additionally, when you reach level 25 with that hero you can then purchase an even more distinct Mastery Ring with gold.
      FAQ
      Q: Can I get Mastery Rings for more than one hero?
      A: You can get Mastery Rings for as many heroes as you like, given than you’ve reached at least level 15 with those heroes.
      Q: Do I purchase these rings for each Hero separately?
      A: Yes. These rings signify experience playing individual heroes and let other players know that you know how to play your chosen hero, so Mastery Rings are hero-specific.
      Q: When will Mastery Rings become available?
      A: Mastery Rings are live now!

      The latest balance patch comes with new augmented Hero Rings, purchasable for 5,000 gold each, which are equivalent to the old Mastery Skins, Hero updates, and more.
      Patch Highlights
      General
      After completing the Scarlet Heist Questline, a set of 3 new dailies will become available. To show off your individual Heroes mastery, Blizzard has implemented augmented Hero Rings for any Hero over the levels of 15 (Level 1) and 25 (Level 2) which can be purchased for 5,000 gold each. Hero Changes
      Diablo's base health has been increased and the Mana cost of Apocalypse has been reduced. Artanis' Purifier Beam speed has been increased. Some of Rexxar's talents (Easy Prey, Flare, Hunter-Gatherer) have been nerfed. Varian's Twin Blades have been nerfed and his Taunt has been buffed to incentivize Varian players to try tanking for their teams more often. Ana has been slightly buffed and they removed the awkwardness of the way Vampiric Rounds asked players to constantly target swap after 5 Shrike stacks. Deckard Cain's potions now display their impact location before they land and the radius of Fortitude of the Faithful has increased. Li Li's Hindering Winds and Surging Winds talents swapped positions. Lt. Morales has a new Medi-Drone talent which gives her limited multi-target healing. Malfurion's Entangling Roots & Innervate have been buffed. Whitemane has some new baseline mechanics. Clemency and Inquisition now remove 1 stack of Desperation, Zeal can be activated to increase Spell Power by 25% and reduce Armor by 25 for 5 seconds on a 60 second cooldown. Saintly Greatstaff has a new functionality, and Whitemane has a new talent at level 20 which can be used to grant a target ally a permanent Zeal. Qhira's Finishing Touch has been buffed to help equalize the level 1 talent tier. Junkrat's base health and regeneration have been increased and we have some follow-up changes to even out his talents (see below for details). Li Ming received survivability buffs (Health + regen). Astral Presence was removed and the functionality implemented into Force Armor. Blizzard (Source)
      Heroes of the Storm has just been updated with Hero balance changes and bug fixes! Read on for details.
      General
      The Scarlet Heist: Daily Quests Mobsters are back! After completing the Scarlet Heist quest line, a set of three new daily special event quests will be available. Using a Special Event dialog, you can choose one of those three quests and complete it for a Scarlet Heist Chest reward, once a day, until the event ends on December 3rd, 2019, PST. New Feature: Hero Mastery Rings A lot of you may remember the old 'Mastery Skins' and we are excited to bring back another way for players to show off their mastery of individual Heroes. With today's patch, players will be able to spend 5,000 gold to purchase augmented Hero Rings for any Hero over the levels of 15 (Level 1) and 25 (Level 2). These Mastery Rings are permanent when purchased and will be placed over the top of the normal Hero Ring, becoming visible to all players while in a match. We are extremely excited to know what you think about these and appreciate hearing any feedback you have on them! Heroes
