Now i know that there are countless threads on improving the graphics, and i know that a complete overhaul would require a complete rewrite of the game.

So, what i suggest is only improving character textures, which is quite possible to do judging from the hd environmental textures. A bit higher resolution textures and adding some normal and specular maps to a character would improve them immensely, especially the armor and clothing, dragonborn's scales, warforged's metal sheen etc.. Of course, i understand that drawing so many textures would take a while but it seems quite feasable and would improve how characters look quite a bit. Unless, the engine is limited in adding normals and speculars to characters and armor, in which case feel free to ignore my suggestion.

Sev already mentioned that something like this is on the table. Not sure WHEN, but it's something they plan to work on.
