“Will be no reason for one to create one except to play paladin or demon Hunter”
Yeah I somehow doubt all of the non DH and pala Belf players gonna reroll velf over this just so they can use a voidy appearence “sometimes” whilst chucking the superior playerbase volume of the horde.
Seriously get a grip.
If the NB customisations look anything close to the stuff in that video that went around by a custom artist (slanted eyed, jewellery colours, glowing hands etc) then THAT will make a difference because I will tell you now that there a truck of people who would play nightborne if they looked remotely close to their original selves as opposed to the abominations we got.
If they end up looking like their OG selves, that’s it, I’m Nightborne. It’s the main reason I don’t play them. I tried but their models are so ghastly but they’re the horde race I’m interested in.
Poxy “pseudo Belf” options aren’t going to make people sack off the playerbase advantages of the horde just so they can “be blue” if they like (they’d be velf already if that were the case) but genuinely decent redo of nightborne will tempt some over to horde from alliance I’ll bet you that.
Nightborne were hugely anticipated when announced and alliance felt sore that they didn’t get them, and the travesty of their model was a huge hit for many, I think you underestimate that. If blizzard do this properly, it will be a huge draw for horde for people who don’t mind the arcane elf thing but don’t want to be another blonde pale elf.
