    Would Blizzard mind if we, as impatient fans, already now transfer the resources we have to our favorite maps? :)

    Still don't like the style of models Blizzard has chosen in Reforge...

    Also, talking about Stiven's Twitter - there are also spell effects for Divine Shield, Blizzard, Flamestrike.

    And an album with Pandas - here.

    And some HD in-game screenshots by TOM_RUS:

    Also, Marting Benjamins is a well know WoW dataming tools developer and during my time following him, all the leaks he has posted were 100% legit, so personally I believe that the two models he's revealed are not fake :) @deepstrasz

    I really wouldn't recommend trying. From what the dataminer say, even just "finding your way" into the client and posting models online might get you in trouble. Besides, if you think about it - it's reasonable to assume that Blizzard wouldn't be happy about people porting one of Reforged selling points into classic W3 as this could hurt their sales.

    I think it will be the case with Reforged too, just not while they are still set on selling as many copies as possible. Once the game is out and most people who wanted to buy it will give Blizzard their money and there won't be a huge risk on losing out on sales, Blizzard will hopefully allow people to port stuff.

    Generally you should NOT do this until the game releases because it's the courteous thing to do. Blizzard already gives a lot of leeway to letting people rip/port models across games.

    That's not to say that you can't mess around with them (like you want to make model edits or something), just don't go tossing them around willy nilly.

    That's just the regular Dog critter. They look like thin wolves in War3.

    Gameplay screnshots don't look as bad as I thought they would, but still, the buildings look weird and out of place without their bases.

    Here are some random screenshot I took. A couple are from custom maps, but be aware it's an early beta build and it might look or work differently on release.

    It looks awful, IMO. This whole reforged version looks way over the top, as if it was one of those ugly HD mods.

    All I wanted was to have polished models, like the ones from Starcraft II. (WC units in Starcraft)

    The thing I hate the most about the new models are their proportions. There is a reason they weren't as high. Now they just look out of place.

    Even Starcraft 2, a much older game looks way, way better.

    As much as I appreciate seeing these and enjoying them, I feel like it's a kick in the balls for the people making Reforged, getting exposed like this. So I don't fully support this, but also it won't stop me from purchasing Reforged anyway, it's more of a self-spoil kind of thing.

    To be fair to the data miners, it's been a while since last we got any info about Reforged, and we're all hyped as ever.

    Edit: I hope they make UI setting ingame, for no ladder gameplay. I rather liked the minimalistic new take on it.

    The human buildings look off. As if they don't have a foundation and are floating.

    I'm loving most stuff. Chen and Grom look fantastic.

    Yeah, it looks too modern.

    Again armour on frostwolves but at least on Drek'Thar's is somewhat OK, it's a skull with feathers.
    Why do chaos orcs look so brown like the WoW original pre-Mannoroth orcs?
    I think they should leave Rokkhan like this because it's awesome and make the melee shadow hunter have no mask and work more on the aerodynamic of the weapon.
    Samuro looks more like a Blademaster than the melee Blademaster, yeah.
    OK, Thrall's wolf has to get that armour off. It's superfluous. It works better on horses because they have different movement than wolves.
    What about the model for Senjin?
    Shouldn't Muradin or the Mountain King have blonde hair? It's too brownish.
    They actually made Sylvanas (both undead and alive) more naked like in WoW (=/=BfA)...
    Poor Uther's right shoulder's gonna create balance issues especially with that hammer also in the right hand for the most part. His energy will run out quickly in battle.

    The Naga Sea Witch looks too thin and the tail too wide. Doesn't make the same, nice impression the original made. The Reforged one looks more like the siren/summoner.
