One of the most surprising announcements for Shadowlands and World of Warcraft in general was that WoW is going to see added customization options.
If you play a Death Knight, a Blood Elf or a Night Elf in World of Warcraft (and seemingly not a Void Elf or a Nightborne) then you're going to notice a few changes in patch 8.3, specifically to your eyes. As part of the incoming Shadowlands changes that will be made to character customization options for all characters, Blizzard is going to test out some changes to the way that certain eyes glow, and the certain ones in question appear to be DKs, Blood and Night Elves.
At BlizzCon 2019 we got the show-stopping announcement we've been waiting for: World of Warcraft's eighth expansion will be Shadowlands.
BlizzCon had a lot of great surprises, but my favorite announcement wasn't a game, or a feature, or even a release date.
You want more character customization?
The latest Allied Races, Kul Tiran humans and Zandalari trolls, are coming to World of Warcraft in patch 8.1.5, but you won't get them automatically.
Battle for Azeroth will feature at least eight new Allied Races — four of which you have access to as soon as you pre-order the expansion, and another four that will be released during the expansion itself.
Allied Races are one of the most anticipated features of Battle for Azeroth.
I've always liked WoW's character models, but truthfully WoW is really lacking compared to other MMOs.
Intrepid dataminers have discovered a potential new World of Warcraft feature: numerous new playable races, or possible variations on existing playable races. As of patch 7.3, the community has uncovered four additions in the "chrraces" file which includes all of the game's races that can equip armor, playable or otherwise.
