it doesnt look like much at first glance but looking closer there's so much going on! New colors, hairstyles, forelocks, horn and tail decorations, necklaces/jewelry, nose piercings...wow. I'm definitely rolling some more highmountains once i can get my hands on these
Are there high mountain weapons? Some races have cultural weapons and it'd be cool if each race had a weapon or two made by themselves or their people. I know nightborne have some, but high mountain tauren weapons, with rocks and carved wood and paint and dangling with feathers and beads, etc, would be really nice.Maybe a quest chain that involves the character back in their roots, building their weapon. It will have more special attachment since we create it by finding the right materials and ornaments for it and then use it. A reddish fur color would be nice, red and dark grey. A snowy white one as well.Drums or a pine flute or a bone/wood horn as an accessory would be nice too, one that hitches to our side.
The paints are too bright and should be earth tones. As they already use natural colors for much of their culture's stuff, please keep with their customs and traditions and resources and use the same colors. As the mulgore tauren use muted colors which are the same tones on their buildings and belongings and decorations as well. The color of the highmountain tauren's face and body paint doesn't match the look and feel of the rest of their buildings, belongings, and decorations. It's almost like a different type of berry/dye. The blue and green are way too vibrant, especially compared to the blue and green of the paint on their architecture. heritage armor, mounts, belongings, etc.The blue body and face paint looks artificial, while the blue of their culture looks more like a flower or water or a bird or berry, it's more natural looking. The green on their heritage armor and cultural items looks like leaves or grass, but the green on their bodies looks like the shocking green from a computer. Same problem with other colors involved. Too bright and fake looking. The body and face paint is not meshing or melding with with their fur as decently as the mulgor tauren's paint is. The high mountain tauren body and face paint looks drawn on with a program, not as integrated into the fur nor textured as it could be, with strands and clumps of fur contoured by the paint (or maybe contours are fine but the brightness/glow of the color makes any detail/texture that should be there, missing, because of the solid, non-natural colors.It seems to me the body and face paint colors were concept that didn't get final shading or values before going live. The colors are very unfitting and vibrant and almost glowing, when as a tauren main, suggest they be brought more in line with their culture's true paint colors.These solid, bright colors might be fine for other races, but our tauren tribes and cousins use earthly tones and natural colors from their home's and surrounding resources. I think the colors should reflect the colors they use among their culture's architecture, clothing, even their mount's body paints are natural earth tones, not these these bright solid colors that don't come from anywhere in their traditions. I suggest fixing the colors to be like the paints on their tents and armor and drums and mounts, more in tune with their people. I'm pretty sure the body and face paint colors were one of the steps along the way while creating the markings, but never got finished to be their normal, natural colors. Went live before being brought in line with the rest of their culture's paint colors. Please fix!Look at the hightmountain tauren racial mount, it's paint colors are prefect shade and hue and tone, as are the heritage armor colors and tent colors and decoration colors. Please use those exact colors for out highmountain tauren body and face paint, not the current glowing, solid, vibrant colors that don't come from anywhere in their culture!https://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/screenshots/normal/680474.jpg
Too little. Too late.
