Dammit... they keep making the Forsaken NPCs look so good while our characters look like *filtered*.

It's the aesthetic of their old race that makes them look so good. You can clearly see that he was a human, that Sylvanas was an Elf, etc. It'd be awesome if the Forsaken had the option to pick the race they "were" and have certain defining parts of them that'd show it off.

If I had even the slightest chance to make my Undead character similar to that of an Undead Bloodelf Ranger with Red Eyes I would def. race change a few alts.

I honestly expect at least a portion of that to be implemented what with the whole 'she raise errrrybody' attitue she has.

      Blizzard have posted the known issues list today and updated it just now with some mining issues, so let's take a look! 
      Known Issues (Source)
      Classes
      Demon Hunter
      Shattered Restoration does not increase the healing of Soul Fragments from Shattered Souls, and does not update the tooltip values of Shattered Souls. Infernal Armor thorns damage tooltip value does not update with second rank with talent point unallocated. Vengeance Fodder to the Flame Condemned Demon does not die with one Throw Glaive. Druid
      Feral Freedom of the Herd (PvP) tooltip mentions incorrect cooldown reduction. Evoker
      Casting an empower spell when the Thundering affix buffs are applied causes the cast bar to desync. Hunter
      Call of the Wild summoned pets temporarily prevent the use of Mend Pet. Serrated Shots does not increase damage from Hit the Mark. Animal Companion reduces the damage done by Call of the Wild. Wind Arrow is doubly affected by Mastery: Sniper Training. Sentinel Owl highlight will display as a loot beam animation if Outline Mode is disabled. Quick Shot will not proc if your weapon is transmogrified to a different weapon type. Paladin
      Protection Shining Light secondary proc does not appear on Personal Resource UI. Rogue
      Dungeon and Raid enemies are immune to Distract. Shaman
      Lightning, Earth, and Water Shields’ auras disappear upon entering an instance or logging out. Dragonriding
      Renewed Proto-Drake and Highland Drake UI will break when previewing other drakes with the Storm-Eater and Crimson Gladiator Skin on. Dungeons and Raids
      Ruby Life Pools Kyrakka has no aggro table until it has fully landed at 50% health. If Kyrakka is defeated before Erkhart, the Flaming Embers pools of area denial do not harm players. Scholomance Warriors’ Charge ability can cause a disconnect or death. Temple of the Jade Serpent Warriors’ Charge ability can cause a disconnect or death. Items
      Kharnalex, The First Light displays ‘Adventurer’ as an eligible class. Player Characters
      The Leather Renown transmog set is available to everyone. Pandaren may display pink, un-textured hair in the transmog window for backpacks. There are unobtainable appearances in two Dracthyr Battlegear transmog Sets, preventing completion of the sets. Player versus Player
      Players are unable to earn Vicious Saddles during Dragonflight Season 1. Enigma Crucible and Empyrean Domain are unavailable. Nokhudon Proving Grounds Ground-targeted abilities (such as Ring of Frost or Rain of Fire) that are cast on the ramps located in the arena can be difficult to see. Professions
      Crafting Orders that have expired or are canceled will display an ‘Order Complete!’ text at the top right of the window despite the order not being fulfilled. Mining The Titan-Touched sub-path for the Master of the Elements Specialization tree is incorrectly showing the description for the 40 point capper as the unlock point capper and vice versa. The intended effect is that unlocking Titan Touched provides a short term player buff when you mine the node, and the Titan-Touched 40 point capper unlocks the ability to return to portals created by Overloading Titan-Touched nodes. Quests
      On “The Other Side”, one character opening the vault does so for other characters. In the Darkshore Warfront, Maiev Shadowsong will reset after casting “Mass Vengeance”. In the Destruction Warlock Mage Tower, Jormog the Behemoth and its abilities are invisible, and Tugar Bloodtotem can appear to be a female human. Ohn’ahrahn Plains Initiate Zorig does not appear for turn in of “Desecrator Annihilator” or “Reagents of De-Necromancy”. On “Maruukai”, carts are sinking into ground on the uneven terrain. On “Proto Problems”, Hypoxicron is landing mid-air. Ronsak the Decimator does not create a bonus objective/quest. Scaleseeker Mezeri does not create a bonus quest. Eaglemaster Niraak does not create a bonus quest. Windseeker Avash does not create a bonus quest. “The Nokhud Offensive: Founders Keepers” is missing quest loot. Thaldraszus On “The Once and Future Team”, abandoning the Quest after defeating the Colossal Causality changes the number of the Timewalker Wardens that approach. On “Banquet Battle” interacting with tables causes unexpected camera behavior. Resetting the “Ancient Protector” Bonus Objective encounter will cause the Ancient Protector to be untargetable. The Forbidden Reach “Final Order” displays empty quest text at turn-in while in-progress. User Interface
      On the character select screen, characters cannot be moved via drag-and-drop. The UI can only display four rewards for Major Factions - Renown Rewards. Press-and-Hold can have a casting delay compared to repeatedly pressing the key. In Ohn’ahran Plains, area texts on the Map are in incorrect locations. Map and minimap icons may disappear while in Valdrakken. For those just returning or who otherwise need to be caught up we have guides for both new and returning players.
      As with any update, it is important to make sure that if you use addons that they have been updated.

      According to player reports, the Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder is still required to fly in Kul Tiras and Zandalar on live servers.
      Battle for Azeroth is two expansions old with the launch of Dragonflight and when Shadowlands was released, Blizzard made Warlords of Draenor flying available to everyone with the Pathfinder still rewarding the mount.
      However, now that Dragonflight is live, this does not seem to be the case.
      The achievement still requires BfA flyting and the  Wonderwing 2.0 mount.

      Blizzard has posted an update on the Dragonflight performance issues, clarifying that operations and server engineering teams have been working around the clock to fix them since the expansion launched.
      (Source)
      Since the launch of Dragon Isles content, our live operations and server engineering teams have been working non-stop to address several unexpected performance issues. Some of these were fixed with realm restarts that took place earlier today in all regions, and other performance issues are still being worked on.
      This is a top priority, and we expect to deploy additional fixes over the next day.
      Thank you for your patience.

      Players have spotted three familiar faces in Ohn'ahran Plains on live servers!
      While the three NPCs are named "Unknown", they look like Malfurion, Tyrande, and Ysera.

      During Dragonflight testing, we've datamined some interesting dialogue between all three. You can read it below. It contains spoilers.
      We currently do not know when the questline will be enabled on live servers, but it appears to be encrypted for now.

      It's been a while since the WoW community was this much in agreement over a new piece of content, but Dragonflight seems to have brought an instant classic to the quest archives, with one of the simplest ones ever.
      There are dozens and dozens of reddit and forum posts talking about how much this one quest affected them and how good it was - and all it is is a dragon with a dwarf visage talking! And it's got the perfect name too: Stay a While.
      This small quest where you don't fight, explore or collect is one of my favourite quests in all of WoW. Dragonflight so far feels super refreshing and grounded. I came here to fly dragons not cry ;-; [SPOILER] I love these types of side quests... Please keep it coming! /cry I just got some dust in my eyes... from you know... the dragonriding... "Stay a While" one of the best quests That lonely Dwarf... I was not prepared! The Vritistraz “Quest”. There are many more posts about it, mostly crying-related as well.
      Not since the Runas the Shamed questline has the community been this much in awe of the story side of WoW, and it's a beautiful thing to see, especially since it's such a powerful way to show how important the actual world is to Warcraft, as the view itself is half the quest.
      Here's the full quest if you want to check it out, but if you're playing Dragonflight, you should really wait and get there yourself to experience it properly.
