My Goblin Had A Facelift!

Posted 25/9/2019

When I first heard about the Goblin model update, like those before, I was a little wary. I have gotten used to my little Goblins as they were. Having one of thier features changed and usually that feature is tied to another, would I loose my characters as I had been used to them?

Coming up to this patch week, I was already in my low blood week (due to my chemo cancer treatment), then had gotten a throat infection, then a cold, mouth ulcers etc. Tuesday morning (yesterday) I had decided enough was enough and had decided to take the rest of this week off to recover before picking my chemo up on Friday. I had not played in the prior two or three weeks due to me updating my websites after the Tsohost disaster.

Today is actually 8.2.5 patch day in the EU as I am writing this and it seems was a massive patch, all the cinematics etc. Last night I logged in to grab a few screenshots of some transmogs I was going to blog about, and decided to catch a screenshot of my goblins before the update went live. unfortunately I did not check them properly so looking at them this morning, most were ok though one looks asleep!

This morning I logged in to grab a screenshot of my new goblins and check out this new class colour labels and Horde and Alliance markers on the character screen. All my alliance characters are on one server, and I play Horde over three other severs. No mixing on same server! But I do have the double agent achievement.

I was pleasantly surprised overall with the changes to both the character select screen and to my goblins.

So here are my goblins before and after, with my thoughts.

So, starting with my hunter Izzybits. I am kinda happy with her, she looks "happier" but to me, she also looks a tiny bit cross-eyed? When I get in game, I will have a good look at her, maybe even visit the barber!

Paxi, well she does look fab. I think I am happy with her right now.

As for my goblin demonology warlocks, first is Gidget. Totally happy with her. Everything still matches.

Gedgette? She I think does need a visit to the barber, she really DOES look cross eyed! Then just maybe a visit to my yak transmoger.

Finally Fiz, who was most definitely asleep when I took the screenshot. But I can see it doesn't feel right now. I think she will be most definitely visiting both the barber and transmog yak! I think she needs a total overhaul!

Update - I updated Fiz, image below.

On the whole I think the changes are good. It is also a good excuse to give them a bit of an updated look where needed (Fiz!). Maybe then I will do a Goblin transmog blog, what do you think?
