Blood elf change

Nethaera from Blizzard:

As many players have noticed, we have made a slight change to the male Blood Elf character models. In response to concerns that the Blood Elf male appeared to be too feminine, and after reviewing the model from a visual and conceptual standpoint, the decision was made to increase the body mass to give them a more substantial, masculine feel. It was also important that as members of the Horde that the Blood Elves gave the impression of strength and a more menacing presence.

Please be aware that all beta content is still subject to testing and can change at any time.

Thanks

Keep in mind, we do plan to push a content patch prior to release, which could occupy your holiday time quite well.

Oh, you know, just a few small things such as a brand new honor system, as well as new talents and abilities along with dozens of other changes and improvements.

Eyonix on why they are patching these in wrote:
Remember, we were planning on patching in many things along with the release of the Burning Crusade so that those who chose not to purchase the expansion could still enjoy many new features.

With the delay of the game, we'll be patching prior to its release.

Rating system!

We've implemented a rating system for our guides. Now you can rate guides on a scale from 1 to 10. The result will appear either in teasers on the front page or when you view a guide on the very bottom of it. This is also the place where you can vote from.

The best guides (with the highest rating) will be shown on the right side block below 'Highest Rated Nodes'.
