Will the new character models in World of Warcraft affect the system requirements of the title?

Blizzard is updating the character models in wow to prepare for its forthcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion, but how will the great rise in polygon counts and animation effects influence system requirements? "We don't know yet," "Bashiok" - community manager of World of Warcraft posted in the forum this week.

"We tend not to have updated system requirements/recommendations until most content is in, most big changes and engineering are done, and we're looking like there isn't going to be anything else that would greatly affect performance," Bashiok said.
