Well, not never
- I liked it in the Burning Crusade beta
, before they decided to beef up the males because they were too skinny. Now that we know we're not going to get
an updated blood elf model before Warlords, I have to say that I just plain don't like the model as it currently exists. The female model is... adequate, I guess. But the male I just find awful, ungainly, overly muscular and not very elven
. Blood elves are supposed to be an inversion of the classical high elf trope (heck, they actually are
high elves, basically, just renamed) and so I find the current model wholly unsatisfactory.
I guess what I'm saying is, blood elves are terrible. What's sad is, there are
good looking blood elves in game and many of them use a standard model. I don't know why I think Lor'themar looks okay, but every time I roll a blood elf I just want to slap my own character.
Just awful. Awful. I feel bad for you who've chosen to play one. Hopefully they'll get their model update soon. Ugh. Awful awful. I hate the blood elf model.
