WoW Shadowlands: New class animations in character creation

While many systems in WoW have been improved and modernized over the years, the character creation has remained at the level of WoW Classic and has not seemed up to date for a long time. In the upcoming expansion Shadowlands, the developers are finally taking care of this feature and bringing it up to date. This includes not only that you will get more possibilities to customize your character, but also a new and modern interface. In addition, we will no longer be presented with boring and barely equipped level 1 heroes, but rather fighting machines armed to the teeth

In the latest patch, which also reflects the first state of the soon to be launched beta, the developers have now also implemented combat animations


Each class, once you select it in the creation, performs one or more animations that are representative and typical of the chosen class. For example, the warrior jumps around, druids turn into cats, mages throw ice and fire around, and monks roll around uncontrollably. This should give players a much better sense of what to expect when choosing one class or another when creating a new one. In the following video, we have clicked through all the animations with different races for you.

Of course, this feature is rather small and will hardly make anyone go into jubilation. But together with the new tutorial Exil's Reach it's another step in the right direction to make WoW (buy now 14,99 € ) clearer and more interesting for beginners.
How do you like the animations - appropriate or should the developers have used others?
