Wow armory not updating 2016
Because Warlords of Draenor takes players back to the homeland of the orcs—one of Wo W's original playable races—it felt like a great time to update not just the orcs, but other playable races that could use a refresh.We know that many of you already strongly identify with the look of your current character, so we’re dedicating a lot of time and resources to make sure these updates capture each race’s iconic identity and personality.It was initially planned to update the models over the full course of the expansion, with races being updated one at a time.However, the developers were able to complete their work more quickly than expected, enabling them to implement updated models for almost all pre-Cataclysm races prior to the expansion's launch, After having been available on the expansion's alpha and beta servers, as well as later the PTR realm, the finished models were finally implemented in the live game in Patch 6.0.2, October 14 2014.It was not until many months after the revamp was announced that it was revealed in alpha screenshots that an option existed to use the old models instead of the new ones, allowing players some recourse if they found the new models to be entirely unpalatable.
was an overhaul and upgrading of the player character models, the first wave of which was implemented in Patch 6.0.2.
Bringing the original models up to par with the newer models is something that we are giving some thought.
Nothing has been set in stone yet, but even though it is fairly safe to say that we won't see any changes done to the proportions of the original models, it is a possibility that the detail levels will be improved with additional polygons and such over time...
To a lesser extent, the updating of player models is an ongoing one.
Patch 6.1.0 brought further adjustments to those new models already implemented, including significant changes to faces, such as adjusting facial 'bones' to re-sculpt faces, and reducing the substantial bags under the female gnome's eyes.
