Wowpedia talk:List of unique character icons

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Requests

"I" icon Requests for new icons or propose changes to existing icons should be placed here.

Due to the overwhelming creation of random character icons, only ones that meet a certain criteria should be created from now on. Ask yourself the following first...

  • Is the character a boss?
  • Is he or she a major character in lore?
  • Is the character using a completely unique model? (not just hairstyle or eye color)
  • Will the icon be used on more than a couple of articles?

If the answer to all these questions is no, then the request is an automatic removal.

Addendum: Don't request icons of characters that have not gone live yet. They will be made in due time.

Leader Icons

I made icons for the most unique and/or memorable characters on (and some off) the list. These include Shandris, Vol'jin, Gazlowe, Gallywix, Nazgrel, Geyah, Leoroxx, Aethas, Emeriss, Lethon, Ysondre, Erudax and undead Nefarian and Onyxia.

The others I don't think deserve their own icon. I notice the list was mostly made of faction leaders, but just because you're the nominal leader of an ingame faction doesn't mean you're a significant character in lore. Roanauk Icemist might have been an exception, but taunka are incredibly difficult to make icons of because their heads are so huge - you either have to zoom in and obliterate their outline or zoom out and blur their face and neither way looks very good. Also, the leader of the Reliquary looks exactly like Halduron Brightwing so use his icon if needed. --Varghedin (talk) 12:52, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

I putted everyone on the list because they had normal race icons on the faction leaders list where almost everybody else had custom icons, in the horde list, 5 icons are not unique in the alliance list 2 are not unique--Ashbear160 (talk) 13:28, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Yeah but this isn't about fairness toward or against Horde/Alliance, it's about the significance of each person suggested. We can't give unique icons to any old NPC because then it would never stop. We have to be a little picky about who we choose to make a unique icon for otherwise the whole thing will just become completely inflated and the special honor it is to receive a unique icon will vanish. --Varghedin (talk) 14:01, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Well i suggested these because there kinda is a need to be different from the icons because the same icons will appear below on th list, so meh--Ashbear160 (talk) 14:24, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
It's perfectly alright to have the icons repeating in a list of NPCs. --Varghedin (talk) 18:33, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
I think faction leaders are important enough to have their own icons, you might not want to do it but at least leave them there for someone that does...--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:51, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
They are back on the list, but you're right on roanuk as a taunka is head is too big to be indistinguishable from others.--Ashbear160 (talk) 14:02, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
well i can note a few differences:

-Zaela: unique one sided shoulder and hair -Tael'an: has a monocle -Tharg: is grey/Blue -Vellog: he's not bald

the last two okay not so different but the first two are different enough--Ashbear160 (talk) 18:07, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Putress: TBC or WotLK

I think Putress is WotLK. Why?

Same reason Blood Elves and High Elves are TBC.

Putress appears in an event of TBC, but he was implemented for WotLK and currently can only be seen at WotLK content.

So I think he should be WotLK.

If you want to put it TBC, then change Varian to vanilla. After all, he was at Alcaz.

--Lon-ami (talk) 17:19, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

If you're still on the idea of "interacting" then no, Varian remains WotLK, as he gave no "buble speech" and no quest while he was in Alcaz, unlinke Putress.
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 08:50, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
He was at Stormwind, too. During the event. Like Putress.
--Lon-ami (talk) 09:28, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
Well yes for that, but not Vanilla has you said first :) He's like putress.
Or we can put The Burning CrusadeWrath of the Lich King for those characters who made their first appearance in the pre-wotlk event.
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 09:31, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
So, why is Varian WotLK when you can interact with him in vanilla? (He's at Stormwind)
And why is Putress TBC when you need WotLK to interact with him? (He's no longer at Shattrath)
I would leave they tagged with the expansion when they appeared. 3.0.2 is part of WotLK, as the 3 indicates. It's the most simple and the best option in my opinion. Else, we would have problems with characters like Nazgrel, who was at Grommash Hold and now is at Thrallmar. And same with the blood elves.
--Lon-ami (talk) 09:40, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
I would have to agree with Lonus-Amicus here. Both Putress and Varian are heavily tied up to the WoTLK expansion, and the only argument for tagging them as BC is that they appeared in the pre-WotLK event, which had all to do with the story WotLK and nothing to do with that of BC. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 08:58, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, that's it! But I'll wait for A'noob to reply before changing anything.
Anyway, Varghedin, I'm looking forward the new icons of Ulduar :P.
--Lon-ami (talk) 10:02, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
It's a frakkin' trap! *shoot himself*
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 10:21, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Thorim, Hodir, Freya icons

hey think you could make an icon for Thorim, Hodir, Freya since they got unique models in Ulduar and being lore characters.--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 18:46, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Patience, patch 3.0 not live yet. Until it doesn't go live, I doubt Varghedin will create them.
Just wait ;).
--Lon-ami (talk) 18:57, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Pretty sure he got all of those ready already xD
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 19:05, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Since their models aren't in the game files yet, I'd be limited to making icons off posted screenshots (I'm not a raider so I won't be taking any myself). What I could do is make preliminary icons and then update them after the patch if needed. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 09:40, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Great work, as always ;).
--Lon-ami (talk) 14:23, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Damn nice job man, I love your work. Where did you find an image of Alaglon the Observer? If you dont mind me asking:D--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 22:17, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

I basically googled his name. The image is from MMO-Champion. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 22:52, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

cool, now i noticed you put him on the Major Characters page. I did some research on this guy so i'm just saying now that yes hes a yellow, but can you please explain how he goes in the category of Vrykul? I mean i'm fine with it being there I just dont understand why you put it there. Like I said, i'm completely fine with it but it would be nice to know.--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 01:25, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Honestly, I had no idea where to put him since he's basically a unique model, and I don't know what the game files call it. However, he has the physical body shape of a male vrykul, even though his essence seems to be made of starstuff. So he could be a "Star vrykul" or a "Constellation" or something else. I don't even know if he's classified as humanoid. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 06:37, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
I think he can be classified with the other watchers. After all, they all are titan constructs. Anyway, he's pretty big, too. So giant, then.
--Lon-ami (talk) 07:58, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Nerzul, Gul'dan

Hellscream-warcraftiii-cinematic.jpg
Guldan.jpg
NerzhulWoW.jpg

think you could make icons for Guldan and Nerzhul? Nerzhul has a unquie model because of the skull on his face and gul'dan has a unquie armor set, including helm. If you could make them that would be awesome, they have Wow images but i assume you already know:D --IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 00:16, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

also you could put them under BC since they were both in the Black Temple trailer and Gul'dan was ingame as a vision--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 00:49, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, I made them. The Zer'zhul one looks ok but in the Gul'dan one is kind of hard to tell what's going on. I guess I'll upload them and see how they are received. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 14:53, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Update: I changed it to the old Metzen artwork that I colored. The screenshot was really hard to decipher with the hood and the mouthpiece hiding the face. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 15:23, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

sweet, can you do one for Grom Hellscream too? And maybe if possible give Thrall a unquie one as well? --IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 19:28, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Ulduar Trailer, Thralls face looks more unquie here i guess

could you possible make a Garrosh Hellscream icon as well. I mean in-game hes face looks the same but his face is completely different in the Ulduar.I hope i'm not being too demanding i just love your work soooo much and its fantastic!--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 19:49, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

I made Grom, Thrall, Garrosh, Jaina and Rhonin, the four latter ones from the Ulduar trailer caps. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 08:13, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

awesome!!, if you dont mind could you make an icon for Tyrande Whisperwind, Uther the Lightbringer,Kargath Bladefist,Vereesa Windrunner, and Arthas Menethil(Death Knight)? I say these guys deserve there own icons. --IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 12:04, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Alright, they've been added, along with Aegwynn, Broll, Malfurion and Valeera. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 14:17, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

oh i almost forgot, could you make a Broxigar icon? if you could then i'm good:D You might as well add the rest of the Son of Lothar, Danath Trollbane, Kurdan Wildhammer. i guess you should add Varok Saurfang and Saurfang the younger as well. I dont know who else would deserve there own unquie icon, Cairne Bloodhoof maybe? --IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 17:05, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

i'm not sure if you can do Alleria Windrunner but if you can that would be cool.--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 23:53, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Danath, Alleria, Turalyon, Kurdran, Saurfang I and II, and Cairne were done. Brox doesn't have any usable art, sorry. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 09:01, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

what about the one from the cover of Demon Soul? His head is fully visiable. Also probalby should make a Krasus Icon too, the one from gthe cover of NotD maybe since some hes got some features of High Elf Blood Elf and Human(I dont want to argue about that ok). I'm just making suggestions.

Brox.jpg

hey A'noob, i know you check this page alot, you got any suggestions for icons?--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 14:28, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Are you stalking me ? xD
How about Broxigar (from WoA), Krasus (from NotD), Maybye Magni, Azshara, maybye a more personal Sargeras and Elune.
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 15:05, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

LOL, no, on your user page theres a link to this page lol, so i assume you check this out alot. And to add on we might as well have icons for Muridin and Brann right.--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 15:21, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

you could also do a sylvanas icon when shes alive. Maybe a Darion and Tirion icon too.--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 17:08, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Sylvanashelf.jpg
Is there even a picture (a good picture) of undead Darion?--TheUltimate (talk) 18:06, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

ok never mind about Darion, Rehgar Earthfury instead i guess lol Cant wait to see the new icons:D--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 18:10, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

are you currently working on the icons now? the suspense is killing me xD and i think Kilrogg Deadeye deserves his own icon.--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 00:10, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

all the suggestions posted are a little hard to read i guess so i'll just list them, the ones that havent been made into icons

  • Broxigar (from WoA)
  • Krasus (from NotD)
  • Brann Bronzebeard
  • Muridin Bronzebeard
  • Magni Bronzebread
  • Elune
  • Sylvanas Windrunner (Alive/High Elf)
  • Tirion Fordring
  • Darion Mograine
  • Rehgar Earthfury
  • Kilrogg Deadeye

some new suggestions-

  • Cho'gall
  • Kel'Thuzad
  • Blackhand
  • Llane Wrynn I
  • Mannoroth
  • Azgalor

If you could get at least a few of these done today that would be awesome, or at least give me i notice that your working on them. Your work on these icons is great and i love seeing new ones. Respond please:D--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 21:01, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Relax, Maelstrong... I have a life outside of wowwiki too, no matter if my contribution record says otherwise ;). I did do a bunch of icons this morning and posted them on the project page. The ones that made it on are Sylvanas (high elf), Tirion, Darion, Magni, Brann, Muradin, Cho'gall, Llane, Blackhand, Rehgar and Krasus. The other ones didn't have any art that could be made into icons, either because they're black/white, too heavily shadowed, at weird angles, too detailed, too little detailed, and so on. Believe me, I tried it for all of them but in order to get a nice icon the pic needs to be evenly lit and preferably have a 3-dimensional pixel range, otherwise the icon ends up indecipherable. I'd rather have the characters have a proper (but not unique) race icon than some unique pixel blob that looks like a cross between a shrub and plane crash. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 09:29, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

sorry about that, i got a little carried away:) anyways is it cool if i still make suggestions? just make only a few sugeestions each day, and i can make sure first that they have what you described. i dont know when your gonna anwser but just in case i'll make some suggestions now.

  • Bolvar Fordragon
  • Iridi
  • Fandral Staghelm
  • Hamuul Runetotem
  • Vindicator Maraad
  • Nobundo
  • Zuluhed the Whacked
  • Dentarg
  • Rend Blackhand

that should be good on suggestions for now. Again sorry about me being carried away and impatient--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 19:48, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

i was gonna suggest Dath'Remar Sunstrider but.... could you use his only image so that way people will stop using both high elf and Highborne icons for him?--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 19:58, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Dath'Remar.jpg

A'noob you got any suggestions for Varghedin?--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 20:47, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

For a better reading, just add your suggestions to the new top page list, and we will strike (or simply remove) them when they're done :)
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 09:55, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

good idea:D--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 10:07, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Hamuul, Iridi, Nobundo, Bolvar, Fandral, Dath'Remar, Rend and Zuluhed were doable. Dentarg didn't work (two heads in one box is hard to pull off), and Vindicator Maraad is just an action figure. Does he really deserve an icon? ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 17:04, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

i acciently put Maraad in and forgot to remove it when i was removing guys like Rokhan(Troll), and the high priestess of the Aldor. I only suggested him at first because he was gonna be a major character in the #21 comic and he already had a model in Wow. But your right he doesnt deserve his own icon. Dentarg i thought would work since you used the Cho'gall icon from WC2. It looked like it would but oh well, i only suggested him because he seemed like a popular character but since the revolt against making new icons is up i guess a Dentarg icon would be necessary--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 19:51, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

I suggest Illidan Stormrage be added as well. IconSmall Wolvar.gifBig, furry, and insane (Have a conversation with the homocidal furry!) (Come and stalk me! ...No, wait, please don't.) 01:18, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

umm yea, check the Demon area, please dont move Illidans icon to elves.--Icon Azgalor.jpgMaelstrong 01:30, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Oh, lol. Ya, didn't see him there >_< /facepalm

Well, since I feel like I should actually be contributing something, why not Eitrigg? IconSmall Wolvar.gifBig, furry, and insane (Have a conversation with the homocidal furry!) (Come and stalk me! ...No, wait, please don't.) 01:35, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

i just made a King Terenas icon, you wanna add it to the list?--Icon Azgalor.jpgMaelstrong 01:48, 16 May 2009 (UTC) Icon Terenas.jpg<-------------------------------- Eitrigg right here Icon Eitrigg.jpg<----------- not a very good one but its my own custom made one, if you want an icon from Vaghedin your gonna have to wait a bit.--Icon Azgalor.jpgMaelstrong 01:56, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Do we really need this?

Seriously, I think we're having an overdose of icons. it's good to have icons of concrete WoW models, but this is too much. For god's sake.

I'd rather focus on race icons than in character icons but, well, I'm no one to decide.

--Lon-ami (talk) 18:40, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

I think the same, although all the icons are very cool, there are many characters who didn't really need it. Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 19:09, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
I also think we should cool it off. We don't need an icon for every minor character that's featured in a Warcraft story, since they are quite limited in where they can be used in wowwiki. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 19:20, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, they're only used at lists of characters, just to depict the race of each one.
To depict the race, we have the race icons, so no need of more.
I'd just limit it to WoW custom models, and remove those based on any other type of images.
After all, we should follow the latest update to the media, and that's WoW.
--Lon-ami (talk) 19:24, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

thats fine with cooling it off, but i dont think its necessary to remove the icons that Varghedin worked on, plus A'noobs been puting the new icons in like the Books, Manga, Novels Comics, ect. sections . Removing the ones that are based on any other types of images is tottally unnecessary. Whats done is done. Besides, i ran out of suggestions. What we got now is good enough i agree.

Overall very nice job on the icons, and i'll be done with the suggestions, but really Varghedin, you rock. I got a little addicted and you didnt get upset with me when i overdid it. Your Awesome:D--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 19:40, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

I almost forgot!, A'noobs awesome for putting the Unique Icons in the right spots: Novels, Books, Comic, Manga, Media, ect. --IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 20:20, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Would this work? the head is clearly visable

for a last requested icon could you make a Orgrim icon using this image? I believe Orgrim Doomhammer deserves his own icon. I know you said you couldnt make a Orgrim Doomerhammer icon because there was no using Artwork, but would this work? if you can make it i'm asking this as a final requested icon.--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 20:41, 15 May 2009 (UTC) i tryed making my own icon.

Icon i made

so i'm guessing you can make it into an icon:D I dont have Photoshop so i could only make it 35x36 to make it.--IconSmall DrakonidBlue.gifMaelstrong 21:55, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

I made it a 18x18 gif, is it good enough ? (paint powaa!)

Icon Azgalor.jpg we could use this for Azgalor icon, though it needs some editing. with a little work it will become my new icon sig:D--Maelstrong 22:55, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
ta da!--Icon Azgalor.jpgMaelstrong 00:56, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
That Azgalor icon underlines what I said earlier... to me that doesn't look like a pit lord, it looks like someone stepped on a grape. If I squint my eyes and tilt my head and put my nose on the screen, I can kind of see what it is, but only because I tried to make an icon of that pic earlier and it didn't work. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 08:07, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
I vote for using only WoW models for icons, or else, everything will go mad. I, myself, don't recognize most of the icons, icons that are supposed to depict the race/type of the character/creature.
--Lon-ami (talk) 09:32, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Ahhhh what's that supposed-azgalor-thing ? ^^ just let Varghedin do what he masters, I think you shoul remain the suggesting boy Mael (no offense xD).
I am agaisnt the use of wow model onyl for icons :) For example, Terenas is not in game but he as quite an imposing face in the W3 cinematic.
Keep up the good work Varghedin!
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 10:15, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

thats just gonna be part of my sig:D, i made it myself since my old one was causing problems. I have to admit, my icons suck, i dont even know how to get that blakc background, i'm guessing it has something to do with wowmodelviewer but thats another story. Anyways, since King Ymrion got moved to undead and now the Human/Orc icon balance is lost, so we need one more humanh icon it looks like. Might as well make it Terenas lol.--Icon Azgalor.jpgMaelstrong 11:23, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

What about people who only appeared in WC-WC3? What do we do about them!?

P.S: Most of the characters here who appear in WoW use their WoW models in their icons anyways. IconSmall Wolvar.gifBig, furry, and insane (Have a conversation with the homocidal furry!) (Come and stalk me! ...No, wait, please don't.) 14:01, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

I suggest that characters that have a wow Model should always stick to that. IF a character is deemed necessary to have one and doesn't have a WoW model, go with WCIII and then go to artwork.Lego3400 (talk) 23:48, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

ok i know my icon sucks, why not just make a Brutallus icon since he has a Unquie model. This is just a suggestion, Same with th four loas of Zul'Aman,Halazzi,Nalorakk, Jan'alai, Akil'zon those could work as icons. Like I said, suggestions no need to make anymore icons, just do what you think is right Varghedin. Your the man--Icon Azgalor.jpgMaelstrong 00:12, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

I've tried to make some Scarlet Monastery guys, but I can't get a clear image once it's done, MS Paint definitly suxx!
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 11:26, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

just use there wow model then:D--Icon Azgalor.jpgMaelstrong 15:35, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Warcraft 3 icons

MuradinWow.jpg

ok everytime i see Murdins icon i dont think of murudin, i think of a mountain king. Could it be possible to change the icon so to what he looks like in WoW? same thing with Carine Bloodhoof, hes got a Wow model, lol, why not use that for the icon instead of the Tauren Chieftain icon? I'm not trying to be rude or anything but i think this needs to be fixed because i dont think giving a tauren chieftain icon and saying its carnie is unqiue, same as Muradin. Anyone agree?--Icon Azgalor.jpgMaelstrong 16:40, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Disagree.
In popular culture, Muradin and Cairne are both THE MOUNTAIN KING and THE TAUREN CHIEFTAIN.
Their icons clearly allow a swift "identification".
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 17:02, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
Disagree with disagree. Those models aren't unique for them. WoW's are.--Lon-ami (talk) 19:16, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
When you see the icons of Cairne and Muradin, you don't recognise them? when you see Cairne's icon, you think it's Baine? When you see Muradin's you think its a random moutain king?
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 19:23, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

well for people who play battle.net, like myself, are gonna be seeing a random mountain king and tauren chieftain everytime they see those icons. It would look 10x better if there icons were changed to there wow models, maybe the same with Sylvanas's high elf icon should be changed to her high elf(living) model.--Icon Azgalor.jpgMaelstrong 22:50, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Truth. Also, there are other named mountain kings at W3, so better the WoW ones.--Lon-ami (talk) 10:49, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

You could try using wowmodelviewer instead, for better quality.
Hell, Varghedin, you should write a tutorial to make those awesome icons you make! So we can reach your quality :(.

As you said, we were on a pretty strict time regimen, and did not have time to sightsee beyond the Guggeheim museum. I liked the building itself a lot, but most of the art inside was kind of meh. I ended up taking only pictures of the architecture XD. The city itself was cool, much bigger than I thought and not as close to the sea as I thought. I really liked the view we got as we approached the city from the south. You live in one of those tall red houses? Anyway, shouldnt spam this talk page with personal stuff too much but it was fun to be there :) ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 00:36, November 1, 2009 (UTC)
Red houses... depends on angle, but I think you could have been mostly right. Take this angle: from Guggenheim towards Spider statue. If you were referring to those red houses, yeah, I have a small "warehouse" there, but my house is a bit downer, like at the opposite side of that high-zone. Awesome you were around, anyway :P. And yeah, (agree with the art thing. You should have seen it when they brought the Aztec-Mayan exhibition :).
As for the icons (speaks about icons just to say something about the main topic xD) I'd wait a bit more, since I suspect we'll be having the patch release soon. That, or you could download the PTR and watch the models, or try to get the icons from pictures around the net.
Anyway: how did the contest end? :P--Lon-ami (talk) 18:07, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
Girl choir from Latvia won because the Dutch girls who got the most points were disqualified for being composed entirely of professional singers. We came in at 5th place.

NYI

Shouldn't we let the NYI tags for the dead characters? Uther was dead but appeared in CoT, Terenas is to appear in IC.

IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 10:12, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

I don't think it's appropriate to have a Not Yet In-game tag for deceased characters because we can't expect every dead character to show up in-game. If they do, they can receive a wotlk-inline or similar, but I don't think we should have a tag on them as if we're expecting them to show up unless we have accurate information they will. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 12:07, November 4, 2009 (UTC)
I wouldn't even bother putting a tag for if they are deceased or not, just the expansion their model corresponds to.--Lon-ami (talk) 15:49, November 4, 2009 (UTC)
That was a way to split clearly the following categories of characters:
  • Deceased but never in-game
  • Deceased but vanilla wow
Because now, without the NYI, we a beginer cannot see the difference between those two cats.

Antonidas using Khadgar icon

Is there any reason for this? I remember it was already reverted, and I saw it being put back to this again. As far as I know, Antonidas doesn't look like Khadgar, so having them share the icon is pretty pointless.--Lon-ami (talk) 20:47, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

Well Khadgar's model in WoW (and so his icon) is a transposition of the War3 Archmage in WoW, and Antonidas had the Archmage skin.
So using IconSmall Khadgar.gif for any War3 archmage is (imo) pretty relevant.
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 20:50, December 13, 2009 (UTC)
That was my thought also. Of course Antonidas and Khadgar don't look the same, but the Khadgar icon is a better approximation than the generic blonde human male icon. ---- Varghedin.jpg Varghedin  talk / contribs 23:07, December 13, 2009 (UTC)
I don't feel right using "approximates". Unique icons are unique for something. I'd leave him with the human male icon. The best solution, anyway, is to create a new icon for him, using W3 archmage or his monument at Dalaran. N'Nanz already reverted A'noob's changes.--Lon-ami (talk) 13:09, December 17, 2009 (UTC)
Antonidas is a male human so when a icon is needed for him the generic human male template must be used. Otherwise Drek'thar icon should be used for any old white haired orc, velen's one for every old draenei. A unique icon is made to represent the character for what it's intented. --N'Nanz (talk) 16:15, December 17, 2009 (UTC)
Drek'thar and Velen have none to do here.
Like I said before, Khadgar's model in WoW (and so his icon) is a transposition of the War3 Archmage in WoW, and Antonidas had the Archmage skin.
Anyway Antonidas ended up in the suggestion section.

Unique model and big list

To Ashbear.

A "unique model" means a skin that is not a recolored version of another (morogrim for exemple). Gear (weapons and armors) do not account for uniqueness.

IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 16:49, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

And by the way, I don't believe we need a unique icon for every single instance boss that is not even 0.0001% important in the whole story (Drakkari Colossus, Grandmaster Vorpil, Solarian, Shazrah, and friends).
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 16:53, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Shazrah, atramedes, anubarak, grand vizier, ahnraphet,garfrost has a unique model, morogrim is the only with that skin such as the conclave of wind,hexlord, fathom lord void reaver, auraya,devorer of souls, and i'm not doing every instance boss, just the ones that i see that are unique and that would be noticable on the icon, and the noticeable helms does make it different enough, to be noticeable.--Ashbear160 (talk) 18:00, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
I thought this was originally meant for character that are really important, and ideally that we have some images of them to have something to make icon of, like Tyrande. For example, Galen Trollbane. First of all, he uses ordinary forsaken model, then, he is not really important and we have only in-game model to make icon of. If he used something unique, like Illidan, I would agree that he deserve his own icon. However, when I saw that he received his own icon, along with dozens other meaningless characters, I was strongly disappointed and even disgusted. That's the way I see it. Neutralion (talk) 18:28, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
I've checked each model/skin to see if it was unique and/or story relevant.--Ashbear160 (talk) 19:19, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
I have the feeling the suggestion list as well as the list itself is getting filed with "meaning less dudes".

Humanoids
  • Jorin Deadeye - brown male orc, not unique
  • Zaela Leader - black female orc, not unique
  • Tae'thelan Bloodwatcher - male blood elf, not unique
  • High Astromancer Solarian - her helm makes her unique? Don't care about gear they wear. female blood elf, NOT unique.
  • Hex Lord Malacrass - male forest troll, not important character, but an unique look.
  • Grandmaster Vorpil - male orc, cultist look. Could justify new icon.
  • Fathom-Lord Karathress - male naga, naga have 5 skin colors - can't make a skin color for all of them, not really an important character
  • Hogger - standard gnoll
Dragonkin
  • Atramedes - Unique
Eternal
  • Sseratus - serpent, not unique
  • Rhunok - bear, not unique
  • Akali - rhino, not unique
  • Shadra - spider, not unique just bigger
  • Zanza the Restless - could justify new icon
  • Oacha'noa - kraken, not unique
  • Cenarius - has very little difference to the current icon, from a face perspective
  • Aku'mai - hydra, not unique
  • Gahz'rilla - hydra, not unique
Giant
  • Morogrim Tidewalker - sea giant, not important character, but might justify new icon
Titanic Watcher
  • Anraphet - Justifies new icon
  • Auriaya - female titan, not unique
Demon
  • Mother Shahraz - shivarra, unique, could justify new icon
  • Void Reaver - fel reaver, different color, not unique
Elemental
  • Grand Vizier Ertan - air elemental, unique model, could justify new icon, but not an important character
  • Anshal - djinni, not unique
  • Rohash - djinni, not unique
  • Nezir - djinni, not unique
Mechanical
  • Drakkari Colossus - drakkari golem, not unqiue
Undead
  • Devourer of Souls - not unique
  • Anub'arak - unique look, might justify new icon
  • Eydis Darkbane - val'kyr, not unique
  • Fjola Lightbane - val'kyr, not unique
  • Forgemaster Garfrost - flesh giant, different colors, not important character
  • Scourgelord Tyrannus - could justify new icon, since Falric and Marwyn got one

That's cheating...
Humanoids
  • Jorin Deadeye - Leader Icon Needed, has a visible eyepatch
  • Zaela Leader - Leader icon needed, unique haircut
  • Tae'thelan Bloodwatcher - Removed, Leader icon no longer needed, has a monocl
  • High Astromancer Solarian - Removed
  • Hex Lord Malacrass - unique skin and facial markings(also teeth but i'm not sure), important role in zul'aman is leeching the loas(also the only boss of that instance with a unique icon)
  • Fathom-Lord Karathress - is him the only one with this skin, i didn't find anybody else with his skin
  • Hogger - isn't his model different now?
Eternal
  • Sseratus - Deity Icon needed, and relevant to the Zul'drak plot
  • Rhunok - Above
  • Akali - Above
  • Shadra - Above, but change change zul'drak plot with hinterland, zul'gurub plot and mentioned by zen'traba in her story
  • Oacha'noa - Above but important to tuskar plot
  • Cenarius - misses black hair and big horns
  • Aku'mai - Pet of the old gods i only put these 2 hydras due to relevance to the old god plot
  • Gahz'rilla - above
Titanic Watcher
  • Auriaya - Is there a titan model with golden skin as far as i know she's unique
Demon
  • Void Reaver - unique colour? isn't that unique enough?
Elemental
  • Anshal - Unique skin(nobody else uses this skin, all other djinns uses siamat skin) and member of the conclave of the wind which are the rulers of skywall below al'akir
  • Rohash - see above
  • Nezir - see above
Mechanical
  • Drakkari Colossus - Removed
Undead
  • Devourer of Souls - Unique it's already on the list but uses the model of the reliquary of souls
  • Eydis Darkbane - removed
  • Fjola Lightbane - removed
  • Forgemaster Garfrost - Removed, added to creature icon(i found that there are creatures with it)

--Ashbear160 (talk) 00:50, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

OK, I guess that I also have something to say about this. Those who are important only in certain plots are not important enough. See, for example, Oacha'noa. Yeah, she is pretty important for tuskarrs, but players get to her for about two minutes of life of their character, and then we never see her again. From Humanoids, I would remove all but Hogger. Hogger is there just for his pure awesomeness. But seriously, unique hairstyle? Eyepatch? If my character would get an eyepatch, would you insist on making icon for it? As A'noob said, forget about gear. Malacrass have unique model, but not important role. Just unique skins are not important if model is the same. Mother Shahraz could have it, but Forgemaster really doesn't deserve it, not speaking about fact that it is ABSOLUTELY the same model tuat uses every one flesh giant. Those two hydras are really not important, and they use regular hydra models.

So at the end, I would leave only Hogger and Shahraz there. I was really angry when I saw that Ptah receives his own icon, while his model was same as Marrowgar. And also, I guess that Scourgelord Tyrannus really doesn't deserve it - Marwyn and Falric were important in lore, he is not. I guess that's all from me. Neutralion (talk) 07:46, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

I just want to say that due to the overflow of requests on this page I'm pretty much giving up on even trying to keep up with the list, so I'm not really paying attention any more. That is all. --Varghedin (talk) 08:58, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
Ok sorry to have annoyed you varghedin
Neutralion in Zaaela and Jorin cases they are leaders of orc clans, Malacrass his important in zul'aman, he is the one that made the other four bosses and empowered Zul'jin, i removed the forgemaster already, and the hydras depends don't you consider pets of the old gods relevant when the old gods are the main background enemies of the cataclysm, Oachanoa is there because she's a deity, and i'm going to need it in the near future, ill probably end up removing hogger since he dosn't show anything different--Ashbear160 (talk) 12:42, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

I know lore of all these characters very well, thank you! I doesn't matter if they are pets of Old gods or gardeners in Stormwind, they just don't deserve their icon. Malacrass is really not so important - we cannot make icons for every boss that have some lore behind him. Jorin and Zaela: And what now? This is about their importance, not about fact that they lead clans. And for Oacha'noa, it's the same case, but please tell me what you will need her icon for. Neutralion (talk) 13:24, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

The other troll bosses of zul'aman got their own icon because they were unique, hex lord malacrass is also unique ad even more relevant to the zul'aman story than them, and the only one without a icon, and as some of you may know i hate exceptions/double standards, and isn't the fact that they lead clans important?, i removed archeron a velog because they don't really have any difference with the race icons but these two have visible differences but whatever, about the deities i'm going to make a deity or redesign all the deities page, i'm just trying to get my mind behind how--Ashbear160 (talk) 13:49, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
I agree to the fact about importance of those four ascendants, but Malacrass can still use forest troll icon because he is forest troll, while the other four are unique in true meaning of word. Oacha'noa? I don't know. It could be teoretically done off her TCG card, but I still do not see much point in it. For Zaela and Jorin, yeah, it would make them important if we didn't get to kill Jorin just when he first see him and problem ends, while Zaela is leader for about month and neither of them made any other appereances. Neutralion (talk) 14:49, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
Jorin isn't killed at least his article doesn't say he's killed, him and zaela are there because there needs leaders icons to distinguish from the race and they are different enough to be noticable, Malacrass is far more important to the plot and has a unique model that's noticeable in the icon, Oachanoa her model is the same as the card, the card just makes it look closer.--Ashbear160 (talk) 19:46, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, mistaken him for Grillok Darkeye. But still, they are not important and they don't deserve it. No, they don't need them. It seems like ignorant and pathetic attempt to make them look important. Not every leader need it. Neutralion (talk) 20:02, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Need as in needed for the horde page infobox--Ashbear160 (talk) 20:18, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
No, they do not. There is nothing baring them from using normal icons and instead have them using unique icons like they deserved it. Neutralion (talk) 20:39, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
Fine these two can go off the list, they wouldn't show much on the icons anyway, if i knew how to make these icons i would make them myself but as far as i'm aware there no sort of tutorial for these things(Right? or could someone explain to me how to do these icons?)
But unless you give a good counter argument for the others they are staying on the list, because there are already others on the list that follow the same rules, ill just follow coobra more arguments more closely--Ashbear160 (talk) 15:17, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
OK, leave them here, we'll see how long they will stay there. Just to remind you, unique model doesn't mean unique ehmvoidreaverehmauriaya skin. Neutralion (talk) 19:07, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 20:51, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
nope all of them as marked as doomlords--Ashbear160 (talk) 21:24, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
I jsut wanted to comment that Erudax and Vezax are the only known representatives of that particular model, and they're both named and have different skins from each other. That's why I ended up making the Erudax icon. This is different from, say, Auriaya the Loreless because there are numerous representatives of the female titan model. --Varghedin (talk) 16:08, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
And that would be same reason for the bone wraiths, Marrowgar and Ptah, for whoever brought that up. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 20:41, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
What about the doomlords? also auraya has more lore than erudax, besides there are like 7 guys with unique skins(that nobody else uses except for those that are already on the list)Auraya, Morogrimm, Void Reaver, and the 3 guys of the conclave of wind(Like Lethon, Emeriss) also the devourer of souls applies to that rule.--Ashbear160 (talk) 21:33, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Wrong, Auraya is used by all Maiden of.. Myzrael and co. Morogrim is used by every Sea giant, Void reaver by every fel reaver, the conclave of wind is used by evey Djinn in-game.
Only the devourer of souls would be ok because he is like vezax/erudax and ptah/marrowgar the only one along with the reliquary of souls.
For all other, another color of the same skin is not an acceptable suggestion imo.
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 20:29, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes i meant the skin was not used by anyone else in the game, and at least i think the conclave of the wind are important storywise...--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:32, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

M'uru

Mu'ru is unique i checked it has a unique model in the wowmodelviewer —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ashbear160 (talk · contr).

Having a specifically named model and being unique are two different things. M'uru is a naaru and naaru have an icon, the void god has an icon. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 22:12, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
It was more of his Dark Naaru model, not the Void God model, nor the normal Naaru model with Purple skin, unless you prefer if i put it in the race as Dark Naaru icon, either way works.--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:22, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
The "Dark Naaru" thing and their cycle of life is still speculation
Use Naaru icon for all naaru either black or green
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 22:35, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Then it's a Mu'ru icon, he's pretty important in the storyline and has a unique model that looks distinct from other naaru's--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:46, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
He lacks a glow... it's the exact same model. And besides... doesn't he become "reborn" at the end to be of pure light. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 22:51, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Not it's not, i checked wmv, his model is called muru, he is a unique model like varimathras, brutalus ad archimonde are a unique model, and he kinda dies to reignite the sunwell.--Ashbear160 (talk) 23:35, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
I actually attempted to make a M'uru icon and it didn't work. He's way too dark so he disappears against the background. Just FYI. --Varghedin (talk) 09:29, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

C'thun Icon

I changed the icon of c'thun to the one of the giant eye because as far as i know only c'thun uses that model to represent himself and the other model is already used to represent ancient and powerful evil in outlands and yogg-saron influence in icecrown.--Ashbear160 (talk) 17:47, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

The giant eye is used quite a bit... wheres as C'thun true form is only really used twice so far, and one was just for a short quest. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 19:14, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
It is? i never seen it used outside C'thun, i was going to use C'thun tre form as a generic old god race icon(since it hints as that) and the giant eye as cthun icon, but i'll check where the model of the giant eye is used first.--Ashbear160 (talk) 19:16, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
According to wowhead the only thing that uses that eye model is two things, the Eye of C'Thun the first phase of the C'thun boss fight, and The Master's Eye which is C'thun talking to the Twin Emperors, before their fight, the skin is even called the EyeofKathunePurple, so o i haven't found anything else that uses that model that isn't C'thun.--Ashbear160 (talk) 19:21, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
Maybe that particular model of a giant eye... but then there's the blue version heavily used during Wrath, and in Cata the purple version is used as the eyes of the ancient underwater creature (though not as clickable npcs). And The Ocular uses the purple version with a blue shield. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 19:25, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
I don't remember any blue version in wrath... and i don't think as part of other models count...
The point is that C'thun would be better represented by his eye that his is own unique model(since nobody else uses it), than a generic old god model that was first used by him but now it's used to represent old god or their influence in general(in the water of that quarry in ice crown and the summoned old god)--Ashbear160 (talk) 19:31, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
Eye of Acherus. But anyway... the eye shouldn't really represent him as both models are named as his eyes "The Master's Eye" and "Eye of C'thun". It would be like using a Female Vrykul to represent Yogg-saron for example. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 19:35, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
I still prefer eye, maybe we could do it like we do the dragonkin, put their true form and then their favoured form.--Ashbear160 (talk) 19:39, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
I changed it so it works like the dragonkin section--Ashbear160 (talk) 19:43, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
I hope you have no problems with that.--Ashbear160 (talk) 19:49, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Unique

Following the removal of Magmaw, I feel we need do discuss and settle, once and for all, were is the "unique limit". Here is a, possibly not full, list of icons used for multiple characters because they share the same model in-game.

  • IconSmall SpiritLeopard.gif - 2 named
  • IconSmall TurtleAncient.gif - 3 named
  • IconSmall VoidGod.gif - 1 named 1 mob
  • IconSmall Annihilan.gif - 2 named
  • IconSmall Doomlord.gif - 4 named
  • {{RaceIcon|Varimathras}} - 2 named
  • {{RaceIcon|Nathrezim}} - 2 named
  • IconSmall Drakeadon.gif - 1 named 2 mobs
  • IconSmall Dragonman.gif - 4 named 1-2 mobs
  • IconSmall ProtoBlue.gif - few named few mobs
  • IconSmall ProtoPlated.gif - 1 named 1 mob
  • IconSmall AirPrince.gif - 3 named
  • IconSmall LavaWorm.gif - 1 named 1 mob
  • IconSmall Hakkar.gif - 2 named
  • IconSmall DireOrc.gif - 2 named
  • IconSmall Arugal.gif - 2 named
  • IconSmall Mechagnome.gif - few named few mobs
  • IconSmall DarkRider.gif - 1 named 1 mob
  • IconSmall Reliquary.gif - 2 named
  • IconSmall Emberwyrm.gif - 1 named 1 mob
  • IconSmall FrostWyrm.gif - 1 named 1 mob
  • IconSmall Frostbrood.gif - few named few mobs
  • IconSmall Vashj'irAncient.gif - 2 named
  • IconSmall QirajiEmperor.gif - 2 named

So, the point is, what you be the limit for an icon to be in this list? One use of the model? Two? Tree? Another criteria?

Go ahead, it's brainstorming time!

IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 07:43, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

My personal criteria is if all the mobs using the icon are named ones they stay (example turtle acient icon is only used by named characters Tor-Tun, Ghamoo-Ra, Tortolla), if there is one generic named mob (Mirmiron, Enslaved Mechagnome), the icons are removed, however if they part of a group or important characters in specific storyline could be exceptions (mirmiron is part of a group the ulduar watchers).
The only exception i'm interested in keeping are titanic watchers and tameable spirit beasts, in keeping on this list as a group.
So my list of removals would be:
  • 16px - NO - personalized icon, noone else uses this icon
  • IconSmall SpiritLeopard.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall TurtleAncient.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall Annihilan.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall Doomlord.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • {{RaceIcon|Varimathras}} - NO - named mobs only
  • {{RaceIcon|Nathrezim}} - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall Reliquary.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall QirajiEmperor.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall Arugal.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall AirPrince.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall Vashj'irAncient.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall Hakkar.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall DireOrc.gif - NO - named mobs only
  • IconSmall DarkRider.gif - DUNNO - unique as far as i know
  • IconSmall Dragonman.gif - DUNNO - Maloriak uses unique model according to wowhead
  • IconSmall VoidGod.gif - DUNNO - Mu'ru is important character and boss in sunwell plateau and relevant to blood elf plot
  • IconSmall ProtoBlue.gif - DUNNO - Veranus/Razorscale is important character and boss in ulduar
  • IconSmall ProtoPlated.gif - DUNNO - Veranus/Razorscale is important character and boss in ulduar
  • IconSmall Mechagnome.gif - DUNNO - Mirmiron is important character and boss in ulduar
  • IconSmall FrostWyrm.gif - DUNNO - Sapphiron is important character trough arthas storyline and boss in Naxxramas
  • IconSmall Frostbrood.gif - DUNNO - Sindragosa is important character trough arthas storyline and boss in Icecrown Citadel
  • IconSmall Emberwyrm.gif - DUNNO - Nightbane is a boss of Karazhan
  • IconSmall Drakeadon.gif - YES - generic mobs in cataclysm instance
  • IconSmall LavaWorm.gif - YES - generic mobs in 4.2
--Ashbear160 (talk) 13:40, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Blah, blah, blah... not certainly sure what are you guys talking about, but I would like to point out one thing. Why in the hell Erudax has unique icon and do not use sake as Vezax? He is uniquely colored, but he is the same race and same model. I think that they should me definitely merged. Just my bit. Neutralion (talk) 16:52, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Got a bit clearer on who has names and who is mobs, because wowhead is not to be fully trusted: sometimes it compares model and color (DragonManBodyRed) and sometimes only model (DragonManBody)
I would tend to say like you:
  • if the icon is only used by named we keep it
  • if the icon is used by at least one non-named mob, we remove it, unless the character is really important lorewise
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 16:57, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
  • IconSmall DarkRider.gif - Not unique. There are several mobs in Shadowmoon Valley with this model.
  • IconSmall ProtoBlue.gif - Not unique. It's just a blue proto-drake, and there are tons of those.
  • IconSmall Mechagnome.gif - Not unique. Mimiron may be important, but he shares his model with every other mechagnome in the game.
  • IconSmall FrostWyrm.gif/IconSmall Frostbrood.gif - Not unique. There are far too many mobs using both these models, and neither Sapphiron nor Sindragosa are critically important.
  • IconSmall Emberwyrm.gif - Not unique anymore, with Wrath introducing Magmawyrms and Emberwyrms.
-- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 17:34, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Being a list of unique icons, it should be just that... if the icon is on the creature icon list, then it really shouldn't appear here as well. Though I would compromise with allowing icons appearing on both pages if the icon is only used for named mobs (and not generic mobs). Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 18:11, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
So everything i marked as yes and dunno should be removed, and i don't want Vezax and Erudax fused just because when we have already have the image and they each use unique skins.
The only problem i see is Razorscale which has the same model as the Proto-behemoth, and i don't know if that's just name that halfus gave his pet or a generic mob name.
What should we rename Attumen Icon? i know they are a type of undead, and the name Dark Rider has come up, but i'm not sure.--Ashbear160 (talk) 20:07, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Is the proto-behemoth a plated drake? I thought it was a red one. But then, I'm not usually watching it too closely. As for the Attumen one, dark rider seems fine to me. The mobs in Shadowmoon are called Riders of Karabor. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 20:37, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
I checked using wowhead same model list and it says that razorscale and proto-behemoth are the same, i did the same with attumen and the dark rider of archerus came up and another named mob.--Ashbear160 (talk) 20:45, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Of course it's the same model. All proto-drakes use the same model. Keep in mind, Wowhead can be very inconsistent in whether or not it counts a different skin as the same model. However, it did have a very clear screenshot, which was enough to tell me that it's either using the Rusted Proto-Drake skin or a new one, but definitely NOT the Ironbound skin that Razorscale uses. Mount aside, that one is still unique. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 20:50, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Yeah now i noticed that it uses the rusted skin, well the Proto-Behemoth should be on this list too then since it's the only one that uses that skin and he's unique.
Okay removed Chromaggus, Magmaw, Sindragosa, Saphiron, Nightbane, Attumen and Entropious--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:00, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
I care nothing for icons, but regarding the Proto-Behemoth, is the Plated proto-drake page wrong? Also, I believe Attumen's model is used for a type of death knight. I'm not sure "Dark Rider" is a thing on its own.--SWM2448 22:04, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
I still have doubts over maloriak, mirmiron, Veranus / razorscale stay because one is unique and other is the same character, added proto-behemoth.--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:07, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
The Proto-Behemoth is a rusted Protodrake, which the skin name is razorscale_warm same for rusted protodrakes.--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:07, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Alysrazor uses the skin of Armored Fire Hawk like Trained Fire Hawk an NPC. He's out!
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 14:21, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
When that happens remember to transfer the icon to the list of race icons, if there is none.--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:41, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
Just to say two more things: Maloriak model is unique, although that is not noticeable in the icon (he has metal wings and alchemy gear around his belt) but he should stay removed, and i think we should leave Veranus in since he's the same character as razorzscale.--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:48, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
The icon for Alysrazor, was specifically made for Alysrazor, all other firehawks can use the standard icon made for them. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 03:57, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
Alysrazor has the same skin as a NPC, so he falls under the category of icons that would be removed because they represent at least one non-named mob.
Ain't it?
IconSmall Hamuul.gif Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 09:33, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
While normally I'd say yes, it's more unique than a racial icon. And if we allow this icon to be used for any firehawks due to having armor on them, then that just opens the flood gates to having icons for any creature that has armor on as well. I noticed when you removed it from here, ashbear quickly put it on the creature list and gave it it's own entry. I really don't want to see 1 creature getting 2 entries like that. So I'd say IconSmall FireHawk.gif on the creature list and IconSmall Alysrazor.gif on the unique list. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony!

Armoured fire elementals are mostly unique mobs each having their own name Volcanus, Ragepyre and Heatflayer, with the first being the "Eight" boss of the firelands during the Dragonwrath questchain, the only mob(that i know) that is not unique is Ancient Fire Lord(in fact all of them are called firelords so they might be the neutral heroes from warcraft 3, with the owl scouts appearing in this patch too) which is a unique quest mob from dailies that's said to be of high rank in the firelands what do you think of this situation same as alysrazor or not?--Ashbear160 (talk) 21:31, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Like you just said... armored fire elementals, and haven't we said we're not going to continue making icons for creatures for different skins and/or because they're wearing armor. These mobs are not special, they are not bosses.
Here's the list of fire elementals (that I've seen) that use armor: Ancient Firelord, Blazefury (fire elemental), Flashfire, Hatespark, Heatflayer, Kar the Everburning, Ragepyre, Singeslayer, and Volcanus. Possibly more. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 21:40, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
If it matters, I believe it's just a reskin of the armored voidwalker model. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 21:43, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
I think it's that too but i think all of them carry the title of Firelord, with the owl scouts appearing in this patch too makes me think they are these guys Firelord (Warcraft III)--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:05, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
The new firelords are just a reskin of the void lord model, but it is meant to invoke the armor of the firelord hero.--SWM2448 22:20, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Yeah most probably trought there are so many named that is not worth making unique icons, and it's also not worth making a creature icon over it so i'll just drop it.--Ashbear160 (talk) 22:52, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Illidan has an icon, Pero'than is a satyr, and Ultraxion is a twilight dragon. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 19:10, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Illidan model is a new younger version of him without horns or glowy eyes.
Ultraxion skin is glowly so it counts as unique.
Pero'than seems to have a new model with higher poly, facial markings and a new type of beard.
Whetever we count them as unique or not should only be discussed when the PTR is out. for now it's just a initial list on what seems to be and what doesn't seem to be unique.

Should Modera and Ansirem have their own icons? Currently half of the known members of the council have icons while the other doesn't? What do you think?--Ashbear160 (talk) 00:25, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Not important enough... plus one of them isn't even in the game anymore. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 00:49, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
Meh i would think Modera was important since she is one of the leaders of Dalaran and as some exposition in WOTLK and Lor'themar story but if you say no i can accept that :P--Ashbear160 (talk) 02:54, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Tae'thelan Bloodwatcher

I'd like to request an icon for Tae'thelan Bloodwatcher. He's a leader of a blood elven faction and he seems to be very powerful. Besides he has a monocle, and this site needs more of those.

Alizabal's icon is Shahraz's

This is absurd, why use Shahraz's icon twice and call it unique?--KIROCHI) 08:06, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Thalyssra and Mayla

I'd like to suggest a unique icon for Thalyssra and Malya Highmountain SargerasDoomhammer (talk) 01:46, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Overused?

We really need a specific icon for every NPC that has a name? I can understand the ones who are *important* leaders (Thoras Trollbane), unique models (Yazma) or well-known one (Nazgrim and Taylor).

But... Who is Captain Nials? cant we use the HumanFemale icon? Or cant we use a Broken2Male icon for Hatuun? Just my thoughts xD --Kandooww ^^ (talk) 08:18, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

I think the reason it was suggested was because of the Warfront in Arathi Highlands.(They might have a bigger part coming) Shammiesgun (talk) 08:38, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, this is completely overkill. Plus many icons are created but only a few of them are actually updated through the wiki, leaving most of your new icons unused. There's no point continuing at this fast rate. Don't get me wrong it's pretty cool to have icons for void form Alleria, Jarod Shadowsong, Halford Wyrmbane, Lorna Crowley, NPCs with specific features, but people like Hammond Clay, Captain Nials and Radulf are useless. Xporc (talk) 10:53, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
I change my mind. I agree with you. Better only specific npcs, or at least the ones that are quite important in the lore. --Ryon21 (talk) 17:26, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

I hate adding written "rules" to these requests, but I'm not spending hours of my free time cleaning all those up again. Going forward I'm going to be more heavy with the delete and revert buttons.

Why was Umbric's icon deleted? As a co-racial leader he should naturally be guaranteed his own. --ShadowShade81413 (talk) 22:08, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
Go see the versions File:IconSmall_Umbric.gif. Shamm's icon didn't even look like the guy, so it was changed back to IconSmall VoidElf Male.gif which looked 95% more like him. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 01:52, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
Yea, a lot of these icons are not needed. But for the ones that meet the criteria, they look stretched and should be fixed. — Surafbrov T / C / P 18:15, 6 February 2018 (UTC)
It does need to be refined, but the standard Void elf doesn't look like Umbric at all because it's too pale. Didn't the one you deleted look different? --ShadowShade81413 (talk) 16:44, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
I one I deleted was the one sham uploaded, the stretched out blue face. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 01:03, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Honestly, Umbric does deserve a icon (he's like a "Lord" for the Void Elves as it might seem) but a proper one that looks like him. That one and multiple others just seemed too stretched out. — Surafbrov T / C / P 01:37, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Just like Xporc said above, some people like Hammond Clay don't really take a "major" role in the game really don't need their own icon, especially if they don't have a unique model. — Surafbrov T / C / P 01:40, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

we had that discussion only a month ago, do we need it yet again? é_è Xporc (talk) 10:56, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Expansion use

I'm confused on how the expansions are used; is it when they first appeared or when the model was added? Because I'm in question with all three models with Jaina followed by the Vanilla icon. — Surafbrov T / C / P 15:03, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Supposed to for when the model was added.Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 02:33, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
I made some changes to follow this. Although I listed Jaina's as just model updates, I'm sure they are for something else like Cenarius has a nightmare version. — Surafbrov T / C / P 04:30, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Moving some to race icons page ?

Many models have been re-used for several characters like Void revenants. Should we move these icons to the "race icons" or keep them on this page ? Klakmuf 20:42, 03 March 2018

Depends. What is your opinion? Xporc (talk) 10:56, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
We should keep models used only by NPCs with a name of course, and those who use this model only for 2 or 3 pnjs, beyond we place them in the "race icons" page. What do you think ? Klakmuf 14:31, 4 March 2018
You mean like IconSmall Reliquary.gif? --Kandooww ^^ (talk) 14:15, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
Yes but for example : 16px, there to many npcs using this model so we could move it to "race icons" (Keep the "Erudax" icon, I think I can change into Khit'ix, look at this) Klakmuf 15:39, 04 March 2018
Sounds good to me. Xporc (talk) 15:33, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
