When Blizzard showed us the new female tauren model I must admit, I had reservations! Though the model looks amazing, detailed expressions and more fitting underwear (tribal look!).
The hands and fingers do look a lot better! But I feel like I've got a male tauren's face! I do really like the angry faces! And I now am a very muscular female.
I think my main anxiety is that it is no longer the same face that I've gotten used to for almost 10 years. I think if I didn't play a tauren, I would like the models more. I think it's like the undead models, and the night elf ones, oh and that gorgeous human male - as someone who doesn't play those races, I think they're amazing! But because I have that special personal relationship with my tauren, I don't feel like I'll be looking at the same tauren when the model changes! Yes I know that I could just not turn on the new changes but then I'll miss out on all the other new models. The other thing is that I know I'm not the only one - when Sev saw the new orc male models he too felt a bit of dismay because it wasn't the same face - and Tome of the Ancient too when she saw Sasche's new face! But the change is coming, no matter what I do, so I guess I'll just have to get used to it, like we get used to every other new thing with each patch and expansion.
