Blizzard recently confirmed that they’re working on giving us male/female versions of the Warlock pets.
I’m happy to share we actually do have plans for offering players a choice between male and female versions of all warlock demons. This is a task already in our system, though I don’t have a time frame for you at the moment. Other art tasks could always take precedence, but we’re committed to making this happen.
I don’t really have much of an opinion on it, but I have to admit that a male Incubus (female version of Succubus) would be a lot of fun. Especially to get to use Seduction on all of the homophobes that piped up on the forums about it. (Seriously, I had no idea there were that many!)
It’s quite amazing to see the response of some of the community. Some people even said that they would throw up all over their keyboard if they were seduces by a male demon. Seriously? It’s a game, and you don’t see any women running around screaming because they get seduced by the Succubus.
Anyway, I decided to make my own suggestion to Blizzard about what the new male/female forms for demons should be. If I was better at Photoshop it’d look better, but sadly this is the best I can do. Originals are included for reference. (Click for larger picture.)
I would like to petition Blizzard to use Vin Diesel as the model for the Incubus – and his voice. It would be awesome, don’t you think? Vin Diesel is a geek deep inside, and has even admitted to playing WoW. I bet he’d be up for it!
What are your ideas for the male/female demons?
