Personally, I think they look great - I especially love the noses on the new cats (both Tauren and Elf).
Meanwhile, a friend is spamming me in IMs about how much he hates them because they look like My Little Pony cats. I'm giggling.
I love the white kitty, and I already loved the white elf bear. So Kiiva will be "safe", she won't have to change her identity to get the feral forms that I like. Unlike Keeva. While I do understand the "logic" that we should have similar colouring in all of our forms (because it "makes sense"), I still hope they don't force us to have to change our character's appearance to get feral forms that we find appealing.
Broken record mode on: Keeva has been Keeva for 2 years. Some people might see it as no big deal to head to the barber shop and ask politely for an entirely different skin colour - but I don't want to do that. I want to keep Keeva's identity. But the feral forms that correspond to her white skin tone are the ones I particularly dislike. A lot.
Here's hoping they rethink it. Allowing us to choose would not hurt anyone - if you want a white bear and a matching white cat to go with your white hair, you could choose that - but if I hate the white bear and just want to be brown, with a black cat, then I could choose that too.
I'm getting tired of the "but it makes SENSE, durrr!" argument - does it make sense that a hairdresser could change my skin?
Having 3 forms that match in some way is good, I definitely agree. But being forced to have two forms that you hate, OR change the fundamental appearance of your character (which I and many other people have become attached to and consider part of that character's identity) .... that's pretty disappointing.
You've done an AWESOME job so far - but let us choose, Blizzard!
