It's always a touchy thing when updating character models because if they change them completely then suddenly people who grew atrached to their character don't recognize them anymore. Blizzard was smart to maintain the current look and merely update the tech behind that look.

 Textures and polygons don't cut it for me. You can only polish turds so much. That's why I LOVE the visual upgrades Riot has been making for the older characters in League of Legends. They go all out with fresh new models, new animations, new audio, new particles, way more impressive than slapping a new texture on.

They're keeping the style the same, but the remodel is generally aiming to be a step up in overall quality to match the content that's been added in the most recent expansions and updates.

 

EDIT: Better expressions/emotes are a thing as well.

Its actually the exact opposite.  Cataclysm proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that old content doesnt mean jackshit to players as a whole.

My first reaction:

The good:

- Improved character models, long overdue.

- Garrisons: looks like "housing" is finally added to WoW, kinda of. And it's open world, not instanced.

The bad:

- More revamping of old content. Not to mention of cheesy the whole thing sounds - travel back in time? Or what? Seriously, that's the most cheesy MMORPG expansion setting ever. Why not something with the emerald dream, something in the present?

- I already disliked the "Outlands" setting, and we get more squid faces from outer space... sigh...

Undecided:

- 7 new zones for 10 more levels... mmhhh... I just hope we won't spend too much time in a single zone, and I also hope there will be several paths to level and not one single linear one like in Pandaria.

 

I will most likely buy this just like I bought all other WoW expansion, but I'm not very impressed so far. That "housing" thing, garrisons, sounds a lot like those Facebook games where you build your own castle, too...

This could be even worse than Cataclysm.

The "boost one character to 90 and play immediately" thing's purpose is pretty obvious by the way.

It's not to attract new players... it's more about getting old players who stopped during Cata or Panda to come back, people who would maybe think twice before resubbing if they had to grind 10+ levels to catch up.

The free boost to 90 is a brilliant way to get people enjoying the new content quickly. I don't think Blizzard is writing off everything that came before it, rather, I think they are looking for a way to get new players engaged faster. The idea of leveling to 90 just to start the new content would be pretty daunting to me, if I were someone who had never payed WoW before, or if I were someone who quit during a previous expansion.

I'm quite content with no new races or classes. I don't think they are really needed at this point.

The Garrison has me more excited than anything else. The NPC followers and Missions sound a lot like the Duty Officer system from STO.

Overall Blizzard is just proving that they are committed to making WoW better and better with each patch and expansion.

Garrisons surpasses houses.

It really is like an extende home base like in WC3, with barracks, towers, mining buildings, tavern, ... and all with interiors and decorations.

It will probably take ages to recruit all these NPC's, spec them, outfit them and sending them on missions like fighting, collecting mats, sending them to do doing dungeons etc...

Quite a huge design addition.

And these missions will be done even while you are logged out...

All this is only possible through seamless phasing of course, so no loading screens.

 

Another good feature: endless open world PvP : like they said: it will be like the original AV but with no end, only several options to conquer side objectives.

Apart from this and HS, this BlizzCon was underwhelming.

Especially when the game they dont play is WoW.


WoD seems like a pretty good expansion so far with a lot of good features. But, then, so was MoP but people on MMORPG.com refused to look past the pandas.

It still looks awfully similar to games like this:

Not automatically a bad thing, more options for what to do in game are always good.

i like the idea to start at level 90; i have no desire to go back to old content and really disliked Pandaria; I guess Blizz heard the fans that wanted something like the Burning Crusade days, which in my opinion was the best expansion ever; I guess those that wanted something more about druids and emerald dream will have to wait..

- Improved character models, long overdue.

These look absolutely fantastic.  They also have the facial expressions that SoE is going for with EQN.  They look goofy in the screenshots but in the actual animation they look pretty damn cool.  Kind of funny, seeing the WoW art videos has increased my hope for EQN's models.

- Garrisons: looks like "housing" is finally added to WoW, kinda of. And it's open world, not instanced.

Im still not sur eon the open world part.  Sounds more like it will be phased, but you will be able to have your friends see it so im kind of intrigued as to how it will work

The bad:

- More revamping of old content. Not to mention of cheesy the whole thing sounds - travel back in time? Or what? Seriously, that's the most cheesy MMORPG expansion setting ever. Why not something with the emerald dream, something in the present?

Blizzard isnt looking at expansions as a separate novel.  Its a chapter in a bigger novel they have planned.  The first few expansions didnt feed off each other, but thats changed.  they have several expansions lined up for things that people want to see and somehow this expansion will be a catalyst.  Hopefully they can speed up the pace of the chapters though.

- I already disliked the "Outlands" setting, and we get more squid faces from outer space... sigh...

I disliked the desolate outland zones, but they are no longer desolate.  Shadowmoon Valley in particular looks great.  I like orcs and Ogres, and hopefully they do a better job with the draenei this time.

Undecided:

- 7 new zones for 10 more levels... mmhhh... I just hope we won't spend too much time in a single zone, and I also hope there will be several paths to level and not one single linear one like in Pandaria.

 As cool of a zone as Jade Forest was, the linearity of it sucked.  The linearity did fade away by the time you reached zones like dread wastes, but I agree with you overall.  Also, I would rather see 12 medium sized zones than 7 large ones.

I will most likely buy this just like I bought all other WoW expansion, but I'm not very impressed so far. That "housing" thing, garrisons, sounds a lot like those Facebook games where you build your own castle, too...

This could be even worse than Cataclysm.

No chance.  Cataclysm was so damn disjointed.  Story line was all over the place with a horrible main villain.  The whole thing made little sense.

anyway, my biggest problem witth their direction is that they want all plagers in THE Max level range, so that they do not need to spend development time on improving older content

they've addressed older content a lot in the past few expansions.  the whole 1-60 experience is different than used to be.  what a closed minded thing to suggest.

very.  but tp suggest that haven't re-vamped older content,  as the guy I quoted suggested,  is a falicey.  they are/have been targeting the 10-18 yr old corwd for a long time now (if not since launch).  we grew older and grew tired of it.  blizzard decided to that their target audience was still the younger crowd.  people need to get over it.

This

I loved when I could scoop up 25 quests, spend time exploring and completing them then turn them all in, a lot less running back and forth. Now it's 1-3 quests at a time; "go do this, come back; go do that, come back" more linear and grindy than ever.
