Ogres or Orcs?

    Just curious if anyone else is seeing the latest November in-game character designs and thinking Ogres are looking too ORCish? They are similar looking in a way, but ogres should be thicker, wider, taller and uglier (if that's possible lol). The taller aspect I could forgive seeing as it's a line-of-sight issue in an MMO, especially in tight corridors, hence why shrink potions were a big help in EQ.

    When my friend saw the ogres for the first time in the latest picture he thought they where Orcs.

    I love the ogre art myself though I think they did a fantastic job, I think the chain mail we see on the Ogre is covering his bulk up a bit.

    The terms of ogres and orcs are both up to pretty wide interpretation. Both terms have taken many very different forms across multiple fandoms. I personally didn't immediately make a connection to orcs, but I could see where they are similar to orcs in some games. I guess it just depends on what you're used to. I think the ogres look great.
