Alright the worgen look like puppy faces now - so soft and fluffy 🙂 But the eyes are neat, at least on the male model. They completely forgot the female worgen ones. They still have human eyes. As for the Goblins - I don't play one so I don't know every option there is/was, but they seem pretty much unchanged to me... not that I care; don't like them at all.

This is sad. I hoped that they would totally rework female worgens so they would look like wolves and not just hilarious puppies. Now this is even more... puppy.

The changes are ok for the Male Worgen but for the Female models I would prefer a whole new rework from the ground up including the worgen voice acting.  First time I ever played a female worgen in MoP the sound/voice reminded me of a raccoon stuck in a garbage disposal.  After that never really played Alliance again.

6/6 comments for Worgens.

You can really tell which race gets played the least.  

I dont know how much actually even changed with goblins because ive honestly played heavily with 1 person who rolled goblin.  1.

Um.. the female worgen faces look even worse then the tauren faces back when they changed those from looking mean and threatening to something you point and laugh at and say "durp-e-chu!" So... how do I feel about the changes made to worgens? The guys look better imo but the females.. well, lets just all agree now we finally get to see how everyone that works for design department in WoW REALLY feels about us females (and female gamers) and it's not good.

People who main Goblins should be happy, like all 10 of them. It's easy to forget they exist, somewhere within crowds of Blood Elf demon hunters and paladins.

Worgen aren't that bad, but their popularity went down. They still lack better customisation options, they look basically the same. Weird they didn't at least get more colors and shades of fur. That would have been the easiest thing to do.

Blizz just can't get the beast races right lol.  They have zero imagination when it comes to them so they end up have trash mob levels of customization.  Oh noes, it's the (insert color) furry run! 

As for female worgen, well, at least they don't have chihuahua faces now... so that's something I guess.  That said they're still as bland as ever.  Literally the same face with different fur patterns, which really coulda been tied to skin color or just an extra feature altogether.  And hairstyle... ugh, please blizz, moving a few twigs around does NOT make for a new hairstyle.  Panda's may have their own issues but, at least hairstyles isn't one of them.

That aside, the goblins look higher quality so that's nice.  But, there's something not quite right about them imo.  It's been a while since I've played mine but, I'm rather sure all those faces are basically the same face but, slightly altered.  Which is really just... well kinda typical with current blizz so I shouldn't be surprised.  It's basically the same thing they've done to all races for the most part when they upgraded the models.  They look nicer but, alot of the "uniqueness" of many faces are scrapped.

TLDR:  I'd say I was disappointed but, I'm honestly not even surprised.

Worgen should have never been a race. I was baffled that it wasn't developed as a class. I guess they didn't want to overshadow Feral, but it still doesn't make sense when I see werewolves running around in robes or swinging 2 handers.

True, as worgen are not a species, but a bunch of cursed humans from Gilneas. There are also few remaining night elven worgen in the lore, for some reason that curse/form so far only worked on two races.

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.

      Blizzard is working on some hotfixes for Queen Azshara that will go live with maintenance in each region. The final boss of The Eternal Palace will be nerfed soon so that more guilds can fill the Mythic Hall of Fame one week ahead of Classic launch.
      The faction imbalance is quite strong with this one because only 5 Alliance guilds have defeated Mythic Azshara so far. On the Horde side of things, we've got 30 guilds that downed the final boss. Hopefully, more Alliance guilds will down her after the nerfs, so that cross-realm raiding will be enabled soon.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re working on the following hotfixes today. We intend to apply to these changes to the Queen Azshara encounter with weekly maintenance in each region:
      When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Arcane Wards now energize slightly slower for smaller raid sizes on Normal and Heroic difficulties. Fixed an issue that allowed Arcane Vulnerability to apply when the victim wasn’t in line of sight of Queen Azshara. We’ll update this post if there are any further changes, and when the hotfixes go live.
