World of Warcraft: Nightbourne Allied Race Finally Get Those Cool Glowing Hands from Legion
Permalink  
 

World of Warcraft‘s upcoming Patch 9.1.5 for its Shadowlands expansion has been rolling out big announcements on its Public Test Realm, between quality-of-life updates, alt-friendly system updates, and a slew of new character customization options. The latest announcement confirms the nightbourne allied race will have the option to have the translucent glowing hand effect that many of the nightbourne non-player characters had when they were first introduced during the Legion expansion in 2016.To get more news about buy world warcraft items, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

With the release of Shadowlands, World of Warcraft introduced a huge amount of character customization options, from hairstyles, tattoos, and scars to skin colors and ear lengths and shapes. Before this update, most of these customization options were unavailable, and those that were found themselves tied together on a single face option. Players were ecstatic to find that they could further shape their characters into more unique forms, and with better representation.
However, players who play the allied races unlockable character options introduced in Legion and continued in the Battle for Azeroth expansion were largely disappointed. Only a few allied races got customizations, and most, like the nightbourne, got nothing at all. That, on top of the fact that the existing nightbourne character options were lackluster when compared to the magnificent and unique NPC nightbourne models, left a sour taste in their mouths.

To make matters worse, World of Warcraft announced during BlizzConline in February that it had no intention of adding more character customization options for the remainder of the Shadowlands expansion. Players, especially fans of the allied races, were understandably upset by this announcement, but earlier this month, World of Warcraft reversed its statement, announcing that several of the allied races that were previously neglected would be getting some love, with plans to eventually update all of them. For nightbourne players, their characters can finally start taking on some of those awesome, iconic traits that made the Suramar zone and its denizens so memorable.
This announcement was pretty big. Blizzard has a history of being tone-deaf when it comes to player feedback, so this complete reversal based on player feedback is an awesome change of pace. That, in conjunction with implementing several quality-of-life updates players have been asking for since the launch of Shadowlands, could be the start of a positive paradigm shift that World of Warcraft sorely needs in light of recent bad press and hemorrhaging subscription numbers.

Many players cannot help but see a correlation between the sudden change of heart World of Warcraft seems to be experiencing with Patch 9.1.5 and the lawsuits that have been filed against Activision Blizzard–and for good reason. Those on the outside can’t know for sure if there is a direct link between the two events, but it isn’t hard to see a connection between them.

It is possible, of course, that the introduction of these customizations and other changes could be Blizzard’s attempt at turning over a new leaf and trying to listen to its players and developers. If that is the case, then it will need to take this trend and run with it if World of Warcraft and Blizzard plan to regain the good faith of their audience.
