Details of Shadowlands, the next World of Warcraft expansion, have continued to slowly accumulate. Blizzard Watch and Wowhead, among others, have kept track of new character customization info.
Here is an incomplete list as a note to self:
- Blood Elf
- Human (Blizzard Watch), Human (Wowhead)
- Night Elf (Blizzard Watch), Night Elf (Wowhead)
- Pandaren (Blizzard Watch), Pandaren (Wowhead)
- Void Elf
- Worgen (Blizzard Watch), Worgen (Wowhead)
New options include new skin or fur tones (inclding black skin—finally!) and hair styles, makeup for human women, heterochromia (eyes of different colors), body tats or paint, cataracts, facial scars or markings, vines with leaves (Elven hair), some ear or tail size options, and the separation of beard and moustache sliders.
Not all options will be available to all races / classes, which might be annoying, but I understand the need for limiting options.
There’ll also be new special armor depending on which covenant you choose.
We still don’t know all of the, er, detailed details, and of course these customizations may change or simply never be available in the finished game. But what we do know is already enough for me to realize I’ll be spending quite a bit of time in the barber shop after Shadowlands drops! LOL!
