Is this necessarily a problem?

Polygon is reporting that selfie portraits have recently become available in the WoW PTR.

Oh, I get where this is interesting, but I'm wondering the why of it all. Outside of the occasional up close pic here and there, WoW is more about clothing, art, and other items than up close facial shots.

From Polygon. I find it... interesting... that Blizz
came up with this AFTER the Blood Elf rework.

But I can see where this becomes a target of the late night talk show circuit: "As if we aren't narcissistic enough as a society that we have to take selfies in our video games...."

Oh well.


  1. I saw this on Facebook last night. All I could do was shake my head. I haven't checked out my blood elf on the PTR yet, but the one in that selfie is...well...fugly.

    1. I think this is one of those items that might be popular for all of 5 minutes and then goes away.

  2. If you can take one in cat form I might use it, otherwise nope. None of my characters has a "selfie" personality. Odd how they're so much like me :)
