Sylvanas now has a quiver, referencing both her Ranger background and the
dropped from her Sanctum of Domination raid encounter, which allows Hunters to trigger shots of Withering Fire. Interestingly, the quiver only appears to be present in her normal model, and
not her Banshee form
, also used in her raid encounter.
Tyrande's model changes are much less obvious, with only some minor contrast changes around her eyes, lips, and armor. While not very noticeable, it seems similar to the numerous tonal changes Sylvanas' model underwent during the initial Shadowlands alpha, with Art Director Ely Cannon mentioning how the
art team made subtle shifts
to the color of her armor and skin tones. In game, the changes to are much more noticeable, with a pronounced glow in her eyes.
The thing that becomes difficult, is that with her, the armor tone was very close to her skin tone. So one of the things we had to do was make subtle changes to the color of the armor and her skin so they had enough contrast against each other, while still fitting into her traditional color and value space. An obvious solution would have been to start changing her skin color, making it more pink or more purple, but that would go against her nature as the undead creature that she is. We have to be conscious and careful of making those choices. These characters belong to everyone and we want to make sure that we're making good choices for the whole of the community that loves and celebrates Warcraft. Sylvanas is one of the most favorite, most iconic characters of all time, loved or hated. We have to be very cautious that we're doing the right thing by Sylvanas and make sure that she looks the same while telling the next part of her story.
