    If there are any serious design issues, feel free to point them out.

    If you are going to make some comment about how you don't like the cape, or the mask, on a cosmetic level, keep in mind, that is personal preference, and this is my model. You are given full permission to edit whatever you please, so I would suggest doing that.

    When it comes to personal preference, I submit my vision of a character or archetype.

    Good to see these released :)

    As I was mentioning earlier, it's quite fluent in mesh terms and the animations are laid down.

    The Spell Channel one being my favorite <3

    The armor is awesome ;)

    But the blue section in the inner cape has me curious is a problem with the mdlvis or was intended, because in the texture that part is white.

    Hmm, there's nothing overtly Elfish about it, which would be my only criticism but based on your opening post I understand that, and, I think it's quite good because I was looking for a Human-ish mage model with this exact look so it adds to flexibility than detract from theme but some people might've wanted him looking a bit more pointy-eared.

    During spell channel, you can sort of see under his shoulderpad. This shouldn't really be noticible in game and it really isn't that big of a deal, but I just wanted to say the only thing I noticed that may be fixable.
    I also don't know if this was apart of your design, and if it was just stay true to what you like Direfury :)

    I deliberately hid any trace of Elven ears behind the face-guard. To pass the mage off as a blonde Human, all you need to is resize the eyebrows.

    Any chance you'll make Kael'thas?

    No. I deliberately made this Blood Mage as different from Kael as I could, rather than making the mistake that I did with my generic(NotIllidanInAnyWayShapeOrForm) Demon Hunter.

    However, it wouldn't be hard to edit a version of this model into Kael'Thas, so post a thread on the Requests section if you want.

    If I add ReplaceableColorId and set the filter mode to add alpha, would it give the armor team color?

    It would tint the armor to fit your desired color, not just the black parts. You would need to re-wrap the armor to a fitting texture.

    Ooh... You are just moving too fast for me, man.

    I like this. I like this because it's a nice re-interpretation of the Blood Mage, but done in a way that belies/enables him to be another race (i.e. Human). I like the effects, the animations are pretty solid as usual... He's pretty blocky/sturdy, but meh.

    I think my only complaint would be the abruptness of the fall for his Death, and the fact that his cape looks to be made of lead during Walk (i.e. doesn't move around very much, especially compared to the in-game Blood Mage).

    Still, noice work.

    It doesn't have elvish ear or it will be great.

    His head should be different.
