WoW Shadowlands – First Look At New Customization Coming in 9.1.5

A few days ago, the developers from Blizzard Entertainment have revealed their intentions to bring additional character customization to Lightforged Draenei and Nightborne allied races. The promised options will include new hairstyles, hair colors, facial hair, skin colors, accessories, horns, tail length, tattoos, and more.

Now the team has taken to the official site to share the first glimpse of the new customization. Follow the link to the forum post or check out the screenshots below:

“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, 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.“

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

  • New Travel Forms for Druids
  • New Soulshapes for Night Fae
  • New 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 Toys

The team’s eyes are set on Highmountain Tauren next. Stay tuned to find out more!

Additionally, the team also revealed that patch 9.1.5 will bring the long-awaited option to queue solo for BfA’s Island Expeditions. If you are missing out on mounts, pets and transmog, it is a great opportunity to seek those bits out.

“The time has come, adventure seekers! We hear your requests for private queues in Island Expeditions, and are now assessing the work required to release this functionality in the upcoming 9.1.5 update.

Here’s our current plan: Once 9.1.5 launches, you’d be able to set sail on your expedition alone or with a party of up to three players on these seafaring voyages.”
