it sure looks like it
i hope at least it will inspire blizzard to make it into the live game

my nightborne warrior, which is loyal to saurfang and the horde is now wet dreaming about the theme in that twitter video xD

honestly day by day i feel like they should add community workshop to the customization stuff, the highest rating and popular artworks would make it to the game
valve did it with TF2 and it worked for them, honestly kind of win-win situation

Aside from giving NB new faces, hairs, etc. I think they should be adding some entirely new categories of options so we can actually aproximate the NPC aesthetic.

For instance what would it take to go from the horrible image on the right to the image on the left? (Sorry, the idiotic forum policy isn’t letting me link the images properly, so links have been spaced between “htt” and “ps”)

Well first, much of the NB aesthetic shows a lot of skin. Yes, we can hide our chest pieces to have a go at this, but that’s not a solution on its own. The image on the left has an assortment of metal decorations that we cannot replicate. As such, I would suggest a “body jewelry” option so we can add these metal things to our chars. They should disappear when wearing a chest piece, similar to how hair disappears when wearing most helmets. I would also add a color option so we can have gold and silver versions. It’s probably less in the realm of possibility, but similar options for the shoulders, wrists, and ankles would be nice.

Next is the head, which is also heavily decorated: there’s the floating crown and the metal beard. I think both of these should be seperate options: “headwear” and “beard”, both with gold and silver color toggles. The ear sheaths we already have should also receive a gold/silver toggle.

Last regarding the image above: we should get some additional heritage armor versions, similar to what the blood elves got. The pants should also be available as a kilt. That way we can hide our chest (as decribed above), but still have the lower half of the robe. Especially on males the shoulders should be less clunky (this actually goes for all shoulders on the male model). It takes away from the slim aesthetic that usually defines the NB.

While I have already argued for more faces in general, I do believe the males got the absolute worst deal: they look like they’ve just been released from the geriatric ward of a Suramar hospital. They’re old, wrinkly, permanently scowling, and just plain -ugly-. Please, please, PLEASE make some younger face options. This is perfectly feasible while sticking to the NB aesthetic: just go for somewhat angular, but smooth faces. Also not every male needs a hook nose as if they’re a blue, Suramari Snape. Here are some artworks that should show you what I am talking about:

The problem with the Nightborne male faces is that they are not the same as the NPC.

I mean, female Nightborne for example, look identical to NPC, with an exception of the Slanted eyes.

However, the males, have a round face, meanwhile, the NPC have more sharp and narrow faces.

The roundness is definetly an issue. Making them more angular would be a great first step. But, there’s more wrong with them than just that I would say. The permanent scowl and the wrinkles really aren’t doing them any favours. The hook nose isn’t necessarily bad, but I don’t think it should be the only option.

giving a slanted eye option somehow changes a bit, however.

But plate beard being attacked to the chest makes me nuts.
