New Warcraft Icons Added to Battle.net Launcher
2018/02/20 at 11:40 PM
The Battle.net Launcher recently updated with WoW-specific icons for your profile. Previously, you could select some WoW-themed characters but the art originated from other Blizzard games like
Heroes of the Storm
This was first noticed in a
Reddit thread today
by ChakraaThePanda and later confirmed by a Blizzard game designer:
Reddit thread from a few days ago
may have reminded Blizzard to add the icons:
I can't be the only one who thinks it's kinda odd that Destiny 2 and Starcraft get a ton of profile picture options for Battle.net while World of Warcraft has none? Like I get that there's Hearthstone, but I just kinda feel left out as a Monk. Maybe adding in all the class icons? Or all the races? At least a Horde/Alliance.
To display one of these icons, click on your name at the top-right of the Battle.net launcher, select "View Profile" from the menu, and then click on the edit pencil by your existing avatar.
What do you think of the new icons? Will you be changing your profile pic to any of these?

id rather have my own option for my own photo not a pre existing character hero x.x
They cropped a few photos and BAM!, now you have avatars... Seriously, can we have better looking and various avatars?
I, alone, I'm sick of those Cataclysm-like photos.
Yup. This was a 30 minute hack job by an intern when they realized their most profitable game had almost no avatars.
It really is too bad they couldn't at least try -- class icons, faction crests, or even armory integration so you can use your character's mug shot.
That said, looking through the full list of avatars, the other games aren't much better off. It probably just isn't a feature Blizz really cares about so it hasn't gotten any priority.
