Blizzard's development team now presents the first images with the new character customizations for patch 9.1.5 after the official announcement. You can see a male Lightforged Draenei and a female Nightborn. On the official World of Warcraft forums, Community Manager Linxy posted the following message:

Thank you for all of your enthusiasm and suggestions so far! It's been a pleasure for the team to read how passionate you are about the looks of your in-game characters.

We wanted to share a handful of the customization options you'll be able to choose for male Lightforged Draenei and female Nightborne, some of which have been requests from the community.

There will also be new jewelry options (such as golden horn trim) and fancy hairstyles. Fans of the classic Nightborn will also be amazed. Female elves will be able to select new facial features with almond eyes, making them more like the popular Nightborn from Suramar. You can then complete your new look with golden jewelry and arcane tattoos.

A breath of fresh air for Horde and Alliance! Allied races are undoubtedly one of the highlights of WoW: Legion and Battle for Azeroth. We were so happy about the mystical Nightborn, the gloomy Void Elves or the brave Lightforged Draenei. The only drawback to the new playable races, however, was the lack of character customization options. Well, the developers had put a lot of time and work into the character customization of the classic races a while ago, but we would have liked to see a few visual treats for the allied races in Shadowlands.

Good News for Nightborn and Lightforged DraeneiAt

BlizzCon 2020, the WoW developers announced that there would be no new customization options for Ally Races in Shadowlands


However, a message recently popped up on the official forums explaining that, based on player feedback, they do plan to design new character customization options for Allied Races. First up are the Nightborn and the Lightforged Draenei.


official message from Community Manager Linsy


Greetings everyone :)

Our characters in game are a virtual representation of who we are in Azeroth and having more character customization options to design our characters helps us feel closer to them


Shadowlands brought a whole array of new customization options to the player races in World of Warcraft (buy now 14,99 € ), but there were a few of the Allied Races that didn't get as much attention as the rest


Back at BlizzConline in February, we stated that we had no plans to add additional customization options until after Shadowlands, but after hearing the passionate feedback around the issue, we looked into whether we could implement more options sooner. We're pleased to announce that 9.1.5 will introduce new character customization options for Nightborne and Lightforged Draenei which include: new hair styles, hair colors, facial hair, skin colors, accessories, horns, tail length, tattoos, and more!

In addition to new customization options for Lightforged Draenei and Nightborne, 9.1.5 will also introduce other cosmetics such as:

  • Ear Size options for Void ElvesNew
  • Travel Forms for DruidsNew
  • Soulshapes for Night FaeNew
    • Crittershapes to unlock: Soulshape into an adorable squirrel or other small critters
    • Note: Due to their tiny appearances, they are only usable in rested areas.
    • Option to Soulshape and Crittershape into randomly collected appearances.
  • New ToysWe

'll be continuing to expand our character customization in the future, with our sights set on Highmountain Tauren next.

Stay tuned for more information.

WoW Fan Shows How Easy It


fancy new customization options for allied races isn't the world. WoW fan Shalashaska

, for example, proves that it is easy. On his YouTube channel, he shows us how easy it is to create new design options from existing game elements. Shalashaska took several hairstyles, facial features and accessories of the elves from Suramar and projected them onto a character of the Nightborn - and lo and behold: Apart from a few graphical problems with clipping, almost all elements can be adopted without any problems.
