I actually don't mind a couple of the character models in Luclin. I like the Ogre and high elf models, for instance. Gnomes were fine too (didn't really look that much different, just better res).

The original character models are timeless. They have that retro charm but for their time they were actually fairly well detailed.

Luclin models were a total mistake and only get worse as time goes by imho.

Gnome troll and ogre luclin models were the absolute worst imo

Not only do they look bad themselves but they totally changed the design and feel of those races from the originals that people had chosen and played on for years

I hated even seeing my gnome in raid pics posted by guildies back in the day

Yeah absolutely. I turn them on for a bit, then off. They've stayed off a good while now.

It sad Takp doesn't. I struggle with players being magically walled off and I find the lack of PVP really isolating. It's also frustrating when I come across some cupcakes with tunnel vision. I will probably end up back on red 1.0 after I have exhausted the lower level quests. If we don't have a red 2.0 by then. I'm taking my time and learning how to do more than just nuke stuff for once.

I disagree. Of all the models that were updated, trolls were the best. They truly resembled the haggard military agents of Fear and Hate! I especially like the sideways slouch they had.

The new models didn't bother me compared to my computer, which hated the resources they took up.
