    Well Azgalor seems to get a new model despite being just another randomly generated Pit Lord

    He is in command next to Archimonde in RoC campaign's last mission though not a random Pit Lord.

    Hehe, hope Anetheron and Mephistroth will get their unique models too. Mephistroth seems a mischievous creature acting from behind the scenes like Kil'jaeden while Anetheron seems more like a warrior, brutish close combat berserk vampire type.

    Warcraft III Reforged Models - Murlocs - Flesheater, Nightcrawler, Plaguebearer, Warrior, Mutant


    He was in a final mission the big battle of Roc.

    Anybody here willing to speculate on a release date?
    Don't know if it's the right thread.
    Do you think we'll get a precise release date at Blizzcon, or just a month of release?
    What I'm fairly certain is that the Beta will start a week after Blizzcon, and that it will last at least a month, so November release is out of the question.
    I would also look at WoW's patches/content to get a release date.
    That being said everybody agrees that Classic phase 2 will release on November 27th. And WoW Classic is currently Blizzards most popular game. So I wouldn't expect a release at least a month after Classic phase launches, and at least a month before the next phase.
    Also it's certain that BfA 8.3 will release circa January 15th.
    So does anyone think it's realistic to release late December, just before Christmas? Is it to short of a time between the two massive patches?
    What is definitely certain is that they won't release it a month after WoW 8.3 ,that's when they release 8.3 content and Ny'alotha. And after, on February 27th, if they follow the schedule, Classic phase 3.
    So does April seem like the most likely candidate? Or maybe even may with 8.3.5 being a small pre-patch for WoW 9.0 and a good timing a few weeks before Reforged?
    Will Reforged release before Classic's phase 4 circa May 27th? Or after it in late June/early July?
    Thoughts anyone?

    Murloc mutant's sword looks a bit without texture. Is that supposed to be made out of pearls or the interior of shells?

    But I can really say I love the looks of these murloc models. Let's hope their animations are going to stand up to their look and not be too similar between them.
    BlizzCon?
    I'd rather they take their time and make it worth it from all points of view.

    It's obviously not finished texture, or cause of team color. And I'm pretty sure they'll have animations of Murkey from HotS.
    You mean a week after Blizzcon 2020? That looks to far if you ask me, but isn't out of the question.
    A week after Blizzcon 2019 is out of the question, cause there isn't an official Beta yet, and there will be, so it will start a week after Blizzcon 2019.

    Given it was meant to drop this summer and next to no details have been announced since, I'd wager they aim to release it some time next year. Will likely be a panel at BlizzCon.

    That's the point, if he gets his own model because he had a specific role then Rage Winterchill, Ras Splinterspine, Baron Perenolde, Lady Darkscale, Serena Scarscale, Conjuros Rex, Fordred Aran, and the weeaboo Blademasters should have their unique models as well, since they are just as relevant as Azgalor in WC3

    LeystTV, as well as BookofFlames, and Arcane have a bunch of these. It'd be easier just to link up to their YouTube profiles guys, especially BookofFlames has BETA playthroughs... and judging by his last upload of 3Human vs. Orcs... I feel like not just the bugs/models are improving (finally the Human Town Hall no longer starts out building, but also the AI is getting, slightly better)

    The funny thing about the centaurs is that all archers are women, it's known that breasts aren't really helpful for bow shooting but who cares when these models don't even aim correctly.
    They still have to work on the projectile release position.

    Reforged harpy death animation is bugged. Attack is weird if it's ranged because it looks as a melee attack. They didn't keep the up-down flying stand animation. Why are they all standing with their legs crossed?

    Ogres have red bones on decay animation? All ogres are now right handed. Ogres were supposed to be fat and run with their bellies forward. Now they run with their torso leaning forward.

    Doesn't look like the gnoll is placing a bolt on the crossbow anymore. Their walk animations don't have those little jumps anymore. Gnoll Warden's metal ball isn't magical anymore (no FX). They also don't have their black mask anymore.

    Ghosts now attack with their hands. They were supposed to scream like banshees. Let's hope the animation is at least kept for spells. Ghost models are very similar.

    Revenants should look more like their element, fire, lightning etc. Right now, only the frost one stands out. Their "dress" doesn't have team colour anymore.

    New screenshots on official site. Really like the humans and orcs. Not really a fan of the Night Elves and Undead, though the Undead are obviousely unfinished. Undead don't look scary at all. There is something wrong with the Night Elves, have no clue what.
