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.

      This is a classic in the making. Aside from just going over all the major events/expansions, the video delves deep into the nuances of Horde-Allaince relations throughout the years, portraying the ups and downs of the faction conflict almost perfectly. I can't say enough good things about the in-depth and thoughtful portrayal of WoW's history and Blizzard's thoroughly consistent writing throughout. Enjoy:

      Despite being mid-attack for Horde, the Heroic Darkshore Warfront opened on European realms with the start of Season 4 which was not intended, but Blizzard decided to carry on with it in the region instead of disabling it.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The Heroic Darkshore Warfront opened on European realms with the start of Season 4, despite it being mid-attack for Horde. This was not intended, but we think it's best to carry on with it in that region, since it has now been underway for several hours. Initially, the plan was to enable Heroic Darkshore the next time a certain faction would attack the zone in a given region in Season 4.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The option to queue for Heroic Battle of Darkshore will become available when the next time a certain faction commences an assault on Darkshore in a given region. Regions that are already partway through a Battle of Darkshore attack cycle will be able to access Heroic difficulty the next time Darkshore comes under attack in Season 4. Heroic Darkshore Warfront offers item level 460 loot and you will be able to buy the Sandy Nightsaber with Service Medals once you complete it.

      Since the introduction of the new Auction House in Patch 8.3, we've seen bugs pertaining to delayed Auction House mail. Blizzard posted an update on the matter and it turns out the issue is fixed on Americas realms with the same fix coming to European realms in approximately three hours.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve received confirmation that all of the AH mail that was delayed is now delivered and available on Americas realms.
      The same fix for European realms will take place in about 3 hours.

      Rajani Warserpent is a new mount sold by the Rajani Quartermaster for 1 Pristine Cloud Serpent Scale. Up until now, we didn't know where the scale drops from, but it turns out it's from a Rare Elite called Rei Lun that spawns during Warring Clans Assault on the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
      The Warring Clans will be assaulting the Vale for the next 2 days and 13 hours on US realms, so make sure to follow these steps to get your Rajani Warserpent:
      1. First, go to Vale of Eternal Blossoms and find the entrance to Guo-Lai Halls (22, 24).

      2. Go straight down the hallway until you come across Mogu traps, pass them, go down the stairs and you will find Rei Lun, the Chalcedony Construct who has a chance to drop Pristine Cloud Serpent Scale. The Rare Elite is located at 22, 12.

      3. You don't need to wait for the mob to spawn on your server. Simply, use the Premade Group Finder to search for "Rei Lun" groups, join them, kill the Rare Elite and leave the group.

      As with most Rare Elites, you get one attempt per day on a single character to get Pristine Cloud Serpent Scale that can be exchanged for Rajani Warserpent in Mistfall Village. We tried server hopping and killed Rei Lun for two hours straight, but didn't see the scale drop.
