So, one thing always bothered me about WoW. I can't play the character "I" want to play. The customization sucks, compared to games like BDO. So, I decided to go to google and see if that can't be fixed. Its one reason I found WoW so boring after playing BDO, is I can't play the character I imagine in my mind.
So on google. Found a rather niche part of the internet with "adult" WoW mods. But it isn't just "nudity", but tools, advice and guides on how to design your own character. You can change NPCs and all kinds of stuff. Only you can see it however. Of course, unlike Skyrim, you have to design the character with Blender/paint.net/photoshop and its a lot more limited...but...
Its Sylvanas (my favorite character in WoW), but changed to Blood Elf skin with High Elf-like features. That is a character I designed myself to play. Suddenly, finding these tools, WoW has changed from a very meh game, to a game where I can customize my character to look how I want it to.
A HUGE part of any game for me, is to play the character "I" want to play. Not what the game dictates what I can play. I want to play a character from my mind, not from a bunch of cheap ugly parts to choose from.
So, finding out how easy WoW is to mod, has just literally renewed my enjoyment of WoW to even MORE than when I first played at release with vanilla. NOW I can play MY character, not BLIZZARDS character...I can customize my character to look how I imagine, not how blizzard dictates how it should look.
This has been the most game changing thing for WoW for me. Now I can play my character, my OWN character. Not pick from crappy parts that is VERY limited and I can't customize my own. That is really only reason I even liked BDO, is because in BDO if you spend enough time, you can make a character that is in your head and make it in the actual game.http://vendayn.wixsite.com/skyrimvendayn/black-desert-online
you can see there, my Ranger+Witch are very unique compared to many in BDO, but that is what was in my imagination of what I wanted to play in BDO. Sure WoW still is limited by graphics (compared to BDO), but the character in that imgur link is the character "I" want to play. Not a junk character Blizzard made, but my own from my own creation.
I wish more MMOs came out like BDO where you can truly customize your character. But at least WoW is highly moddable, kinda like Skyrim.
