While I believe everyone is glad about their customization options, I would like to raise the Nightborne voices once again, the voice that has been ignored by Blizzard ever since the race has been introduced to us. Everyone can agree on the fact that the Nightborne is the hardest allied race to unlock, and yet the limited looking one.
What do I mean by that? Many players who have worked so hard to unlock the Nightborne allied race hoping to get looks like the NPC Nightborne have got disappointed.
However, the look is not the only thing that forces the players to race change, it is the fact that the race has very few customization options over all races of the Azeroth.
Below the link to the graph showing the looks, you can make with the provided customizations.
Meaning there are no differences between players who play a Nightborne.
I am sad seeing, a race which kept people entertained for over 2 patches in Legion, getting treated like this.
Moreover, I agree, I am not here to repeat the same words of saying FIX the race and not providing any suggestions.
I am here to do so, to provide suggestions. As the Shadowland’s main feature is adding more customization options for the player characters I would like these suggestions to be taken into consideration, as many Nightorne players will agree on these.
1. Please give the option of having NPC eyes.
I know it is hard to make one on the playable models, but the recently added human customizations prove it can be done.
Overall model itself is identical to NPC models, but however the eyes are one of the lacking things.
It can be fixed, I know it.
Below, fan made editing:
2. More hairstyles.
Please re-visit NPC Nightbornes, a couple of hairstyles that have not been used.
An example attached below.
3. Arcane/Fellborne options
One of the key features of the race Nightbonre is their connection to the Arcane magic… However, the only representation of the arcane on player models are the arcane tattoos.
Please reconsider adding arcane infused hands as well as the mana infused hair options.
The fell magic has not been used either. Let’s remember, only Nightborne warlocks are the Fellborne Nightbornes.
It would be a great addition for those who play Warlock class especially.
What is needed?
- Skin option with the green shades.
- Fell infused hands.
- Fell tattoos. (Basically the same tattoos we have, but the green coloration)
It would be great if you could include them,as it is done to Mag’har and Highmountain Tauren, each skin/tattoo shows which tribe they belong to, but in case of the Nightborne there are no tribes, there are societies.
Nightborne. (Evolved through Nightwell)
4. Bare feet options.
Please rework or add hide feet/boots options of the Nightborne, the Nightborne does not wear shoes, even the player model NPC you have filled within the Nightborne Nighthold hub do not wear shoes as well, they do wear shoes but with the bare feet just like trolls do.
Note: Zandalari troll skeleton model is a modified version of the NIghelf skeleton, the Nightborne uses the Night Elf skeleton as well, if it was possible to make bare feet for the Zandalari I believe it is possible to do for the Nightborne as well.
5. More skin options.
The Nightborne no longer depend on the Nightwell, nor they live under the arcane shield which blocked them from getting sun and moonlight. Therefore, I believe the Nightborne are ready to get some variety of “natural-looking” skin options.
Perhaps skin tone as Azshara’s.
6.Plate beard options.
If you will look, almost any Nightborne male has a plate chin or so-called “Egyptian beard”. Please separate the chin option from the Heritage armour and add more variety of the chin plates. Please reconsider adding golden versions as well.
I understand, my voice alone will not help me reach the Blizzard, sometimes I feel sad and jealous of the High Elf community and how they fight for their rights, Nightborne of Azeroth Unite and everyone else who is not cold-hearted towards this beautiful race please speak up and support this.
Our voices must be heard.
Glory to Shal’dorei!
