            Art is great but there are minor flaws like:
            armor clipping on characters, character animations, old textures, Mounts etc
            and you copy recolour a lot

              Thank you for your work.

              Please take back control over Blizzard from the power-hungry marketing/businesspeople.
              At most those people should be advisors. When they run the company, they wither it down from the inside.

                  I have been playing this game since the Burning Crusade and BFA is hands down the best looking World of Warcraft Expansion.

                        This is the reason why so many of us bought the psychical CE of WoW; for the artbook which contained so many of these pieces. It's no secret that a lot of us love the art team and what pieces they craft and justify the additional cost of buying the CE to have the artbook to enjoy. How disappointing it was to receive that CE and find the artbook missing. Please don't let history repeat itself next xpac!

                          New things are always very cool and all.. but the elephant in the room...
                          Would you PLEASE do something about the horrible mouth movement of speaking characters in the in-game cinematics?
                          Instead of just flapping their jaws and wiggling mouthcorners around as if they have a speech dissability, please make it look like they actually articulate well..
                          Thanks <3

                                    It almost makes me angry that the art team does such stellar work and then the game systems come along and taint the entire experience of the game. Seems like such a slap in the face to the art team

                                      Hoping that someone pay attention to late date comments. Guys I want to make you 2 questions. First of all, this questions are more related to the content we have in-game than to the pre-state of creating art designs. So first question:
                                      How possible would be to add animations for characters, like guards stands, even new postures that would change the way your character walks, stands and runs? 
                                      My second question it's more related to art and design. So how possible it's in a future to get gear that's only for NPC's (Warfront Troops with the recolor from the Season 1 Arena's Plate set) like weapons, sets, or pieces of existing and obtainable gear, but on another color?

                                          Beautiful artwork, terrible 'everyond deserves epics' gameplay. Move the artists to reforged or classic please.

                                              The only saving grace of Activision Blizzard at this point, are the extremely talented people in the Art Team.

Ian says a lot of words but doesn't actually say much, and some of the words he uses are pure insider terminology, and don't mean anything for us viewers. Thanks for helping him out Kenny and making this a more enjoyable experience. :)

I don't want to play Classic to be able to enjoy a solid baseline game experience through old rehashed content.
