#4418: Ormus looks like Robert Heinlein

So the latest WoW patch went live today, the pre-patch for Warlords of Draenor, and that means all the new character models are up. This includes new faces, which is actually a good thing for the male human toons because they got rid of all the harelip variations. But Blizzard didn't map the new faces to old ones such that Old Face A mapped to New Face A; instead they seem to have made groups which means Old Faces A, B, and C map to New Face A, and so on. Since you can now change your face when you go to a barber shop in the game (Krazzlebolt's Barber Shop and Plastic Surgery!) this means you can pick whatever new face you want, for a price.

There does not seem to be a great deal of variation in faces. The female human faces all have approximately the same eyes, and none of the face textures are as "pretty" as the old models. Ditto for female dwarves.

Anyway, as soon as was feasible I took Ormus to a barber shop and corrected his facial hair, leaving everything else alone.

There are a bunch of new features and the new skill trees (yeah, they changed them again) are going to take some getting used to.

New content goes live in a month. Whee!
