What strange new things have you learned from WoW’s updated character customizations?
The Human women of Azeroth yawn a lot.
So yeah, we’ve had character creation options for the Shadowlands pre-patch for a few days now as I write this, and I’ve been tinkering around pretty seriously. My Night Elf I had a real idea for, but other characters like my Human Warrior, it’s just been constant nonstop experimentation, and I’m finding things that I didn’t know. For example, the aforementioned Human yawning. Why are they yawning so much? Is it that boring to be a Human? I’ve been a Human all of my life and I’d not noticed how soul crushingly tedious it apparently is to be one, but I can’t argue with the results — the constant yawns are pretty unambiguous. These are some tired people, these Humans.
I’ve been playing around with the wide/narrow options for Human faces, and I have to say I hope we get even more options for faces and scars, but I’m enjoying what we did get quite a lot. It’s pretty significant, and when I was at BlizzCon 2019 watching this all happen, I wasn’t aware of just how much I’d enjoy the system. I knew I’d like it, but going through all the various hair and skin color options was a lot more than I expected it to be.
It makes me want to start playing my Tauren again because I want to start playing around with all that. Or maybe even an Orc — an Orc with all the new options would be a lot of fun to work on, and I’d figure out what they do. But I find myself amazed at things like the Human yawn — such a little thing and something I’d never noticed in all my years playing World of Warcraft.
So what about y’all? What have you noticed while playing with the new customization options? That weird thing Night Elves do where they look around constant? The Troll stand? What have you just not noticed thanks to the new options?
