Return to the 2003 Blizzard WOW information station decade ago – part2

six racesSix races
In the first “World of Warcraft”, only six players can be optional races. Union had human, night Elf and dwarf; the tribe and orcs, tauren and souls.
The models and textures of the various ethnic have little distinction with later, but still retain many traces of “Warcraft III” style.
The shape of the human (especially the ratio of hair and upper and the lower body) may make today’s players stunned.
night elvesNight elves
The first night elves were taller and slender than now, and even a bit weak. But we did not find any sex shadow of the shape of the female night elf before.
Dwarf Uncle modeling has no big changes in the later, but the dwarves aunt has large changes, waist becomes a slender, and also has kindly expression.
We can find particularly significant “Warcraft II” shadow from orcs, it is extremely stupid and brutish, there is no trace of “humanity” in the whole body from top to bottom. Later Orc retains masculine characteristics, but add into a little “wisdom” element. People can feel that they are also the feelings of the race.
In six races, the only change is the Tauren, from the very beginning to the present, this model has never had a change. And to some extent, can think Tauren is a one-time design of the most successful race.
Early souls, the height is even shorter than now, even more than short, and the proportion of the various parts is disorder, but the basic cast action is moulded. From this chart, we can see the hero: Shadowfang Keep had some strange monster in the original design. These translucent creatures never appeared in later versions.
Six career
In early “World of Warcraft” only had six professions, hunter, warlock, druid, warrior, mage, and shaman. Talent system at this time has not even designed.
The optional race of early hunters had night elves, dwarves, orcs and tauren. Main skills are pet-related. The three core skills are divided into: beast track, and appease the beast and tame beast. From here, we can be considered in the subsequent three-line talent. Beastmaster lasted the hunters early design ideas.
