Just like the other phoenix mounts, it's a reskinned Hippogryph, a model that's almost ten years old now. Nothing to get excited about.If they wanted to go with an Asian phoenix theme, they would have been better off reskinning the new flying serpent.
That Phoenix is awesome and that screenshot with the waterfall is awesome too :) I'm waiting :)
Correct me if I'm wrong but im understanding that:There are 4 different color Pandaren Phoenixes which are purchasable when you hit Exalted with 2 Different factionsPlus, there is the Crimson one from a Dungeon Challenge?I Sure hope this is correct because I really want but im not sure if I can get enough ppl interested on my server to complete a challenge (mine is mostly a pvp server).I do like a lot the idea of dungeon challenges because, lets face it, its way easier to find 4 skilled/interested ppl to complete them than 10 for a raid. I also like the fact that MoP will offer great rewards for much more than just raiding... cause that really limited a lot of game content to the "raiding community". I think great rewards should still be avaliable for raiders, but some other cool content should be given for doing other things too. And raiders shouldn´t complain because, if they can raid... they can do pretty much anything else in the game so...IMO there should be more rewards for PvP fans. Maybe a Meta PvP mount for become an "Xbattleground" Master. More stuff to buy with honor than just PvP gear and profession Mats. Maybe new mounts (the TB ones were an awesome idea) Perhaps a special recolor of an Opposing Faction's Mount, as to say you conquered a particular achievement/feat of strenght over the Horde/Alliance (or bought with a whole bunch of Honor by increasing the cap and making ppl grind it). And also to add more incentives to keep on doing PvP with a character after you've geared it up with the latest BG/Arena armor.
I am liking the new ideas and interior designs of the raids, and the mounts too. From what I have seen the mechanics look good on the boss fight as well
What would happen is Tsulong died in Day phase? gueesing you wipe the raid or something simular?
It's already been stated a couple times, but the phoenix mounts absolutely ARE reskins.It takes all of 5 seconds to look and see that they're the same model as Ashes of Al'ar and the Dark Phoenix mounts. (which appear to be reskins of the hippogryphs anyway, if you take the time to really compare them in model viewer)They're pretty awesome, yes, but they are definitely reskins.
So many people have NO IDEA what a "reskin" or "new model" terms mean.The model file for Ashes of Al'ar is "phoenix.m2"The model file for those Ancestral Phoenixes is "pandarenphoenix.m2"Thus, it's a new model. "Reskin" means "same model, new skin", and as you can see above, it's not the same model, it's not even identical (meshes are actually different. Even the shadow phoenix guild mount wasn't a reskin, even though the meshes there were minimally different (but still). Reskin is, for example, the stone troggs in Deepholm, as they use the same old trogg model with a new stony skin.
when i loged in beta and saw this beauty of mount i was shocked. it is so beautiful only problem is when you start flying his wings starts to flap really fast but damn when mop goes live i will def aim for this mount to have it in my posession again
First thing I will do when i get 90 when MoP goes live it get that mountI mean come on its silver it cant be that hard for silver
The mount looks like the Ashes of Al'ar model. Just with feet and a bigger tail. And a few other minor changes. Other than that, it looks pretty awesome. Raids look quite nice, so I'm looking forward to them. Wish I could get in there and see what it's like with my owns eyes though, regardless of bugs etc.
Oh... thats a pritty bird,lol. But does anyone know if that chines dragon a posible mount to? Or is it a mount for show you can't get? -Edit- Just saw the video, nice boss, I like it. Hope the glitchs are soon fixed. Iv seen some people riding the thing he is in other beta videos and thats what im asking about in my post before edited. Also, sorry about your sad wipe at the end there,lol.
Tsulong is a boss fight in the raid; there are a lot of the new Dragon Serpent mounts available all through out Pandaria, from a few different factions. Ok, thanks so much. :) I'll keep that in mind when trying to get my own when MOP is out.(grr, sorry new. may take bit before i can get my quotes to look right)
Nice phoenix models, but the head indeed does look like a hippogryph =/
omg a pheonix mount in wow...that has legs!
