Many MMORPGs have a large number of animators, 3D modellers, artists and designers. World of Warcraft certainly isn’t an exception. But with the huge amount of content that is added with each expansion or major update of the game, certain elements may be overlooked. Cosmetic glyphs are one such element. WoW Warlocks have plenty of these, which range from demon makeovers to spell recolours, but for many players, it’s not enough. Reddit user Fishbones06 clearly shares the community’s disappointment with this state of affairs, as they’ve designed a batch of 12 new cosmetic glyphs for Warlocks to spruce up their pets with.
Readers with good memories may recall Fishbones’ Murloc themed ghoul glyphs, but this time the theming is more of a troll job – literally. The Zandalari trolls inspired the first set. They added gold armour to the Felhunter, Succubus and Voidwalkers and turned your imp into a living, breathing idol. A frequent player in Azeroth’s history is the powerful Zandalari Empire. A tribe which values knowledge, history and magic above all else, the Zandalari have clashed with player characters in numerous places, from Zul’drak in Northrend to the Isle of Thunder in Pandaria. These glyphs were made for Zandalari Warlocks by becoming an Allies Race in Battle for Azeroth.
The Blood Trolls inspired the second set. It adds bones, nails, and a crimson scheme to all four demons. The Succubus becomes a blood-soaked harpy and the imp is transformed into an animated voodoo doll. Blood Trolls are cannibalistic tribe that practice blood magic and eat their enemies to increase their strength. They represented a major threat during Battle for Azeroth, as the Blood God G’huun occupied the titan sanctum of Uldir.
