Stepford Paladin

January 24, 2009

Hello. This is my Stepford Pally. She has no inner feeling, emotion or consciousness. She will raise her mace up high and smite you without a thought going through her pretty little head. 

This really creeps me out. It makes me want to say, “This is my pally. There are many like her, but this one is mine.”

Why does she not have any change in her facial features? Is this only the old races? My Draenei and my Blood Elves look fierce in combat – you can tell they’re hitting things and causing damage (or taking damage, as the case may be) but you cannot tell on my Human.

    If you’d like a technical answer: yes, it’s the old races. Humans, in particular, don’t have many facial animations at all, which leads me to believe they may have been one of the first races modeled for WoW. Hey, even the night elves have various expressions compared to the dead-faced humans.Human fighting: o.oHuman cheering: o.oHuman getting hit: o.oHuman player watching avatar facial expressions: O.o

    You could have picked one that looked fierce all the time, like some of the Tauren or Undead…or a few uglier humans…

    […] look like a warrior – she didn’t look like she would smash faces in. Not because her face didn’t have expression, but because she looked so darn cute! Is this the face of someone who would bash your head […]

    […] brought a post from BBBB to my Stepford Paladin post, encouraging his readers to “wang my server”.  You should have seen my face […]
