"There will be five different designs for each of these forms for the Horde and Alliance. Night elves can choose to change their cat and bear look at any time by visiting the barber shop and changing their character's hair color, while tauren will be able to change which look they use by switching skin tones in the barber shop -- a new feature for tauren in the next major content patch. Given that there are more hair colors and skin tones than unique form looks, some colors and tones will overlap with these new textures. The hair and skin colors chosen will, in most cases, correspond with the color seen in the look of each form. Some similar colors that may share a particular cat texture will not necessarily share the same bear texture. "
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
Okay, analysis time. I'm not happy that this isn't tied to gear directly. I'd really like to have the skin modify with gear on some level. I'd also like it not to be tied to the skin tone of the tauren; what if I like one bear but hate the cat?
But it's SO much better, I don't really mind. The black one looks damn good.
Can't wait to see what they did with the Tauren cat.
