Blizzard’s work on cleansing up World of Warcraft within the wake of historic allegations of harassment on the firm proceed, with the most recent spherical concentrating on a sequence of suggestive jokes and flirts which are being eliminated as a part of replace 9.1.5.
As detailed by Wowhead, there are a lot of adjustments, a few of them leaving characters with as few as two traces of dialogue to cycle by. And whereas some are clearly the results of combing again by the archives and eradicating content material that, within the wake of Blizzard’s present disaster, is clearly inappropriate, different cuts are merely right down to the truth that it’s now 2021 and a few of these items is both horribly dated or just unhealthy.
Some examples of jokes which are being eliminated are:
Draenei Male: If you possibly can get your palms on my household jewels I’d be deeply appreciative.
Goblin Female: I’m a contemporary goblin girl. Independent? I nonetheless let males do good issues to me. But I finished giving them any credit score.
Orc Female: What’s estrogen? Can you eat it?
Tauren Male: Homogenized? No means, I like the women.
Meanwhile listed below are among the flirts being lower:
Blood Elf Demon Hunter Male: Are you certain you’re not part-demon? I discover myself desirous to stalk you.
Blood Elf Female: Normally, I solely experience on epic mounts… But, let’s speak.
Dwarf Male: You look fairly, I like your hair, right here’s a drink… Are you prepared now?
Goblin Male: I obtained what you want. *sound of zipper*
Highmountain Tauren Female: Are you watching my rack?
Nightborn Male: Mmmm, I wanna faucet that ley line.
Orc Male: Um… You appear like a woman.
Troll Female: When enraged, and in warmth, a feminine troll can mate over 80 occasions in a single night time. Be you ready?
Like I stated, whereas a few of these are being taken out of the sport for apparent causes, lots of them merely suck, and Blizzard should determine hey, since we’re trawling by the archives anyway, might as properly do some cleansing whereas we’re in right here. There’s an extended listing of the adjustments over at Wowhead when you actually really feel like letting out an extended, unhappy groan at how far we’ve all come since 2004.
