I like that it's not a re-do of an existing mount like the paladin and warlock ones... but it doesn't exactly motivate me to level up my shaman. To be fair, I'm not sure what would have.
now THAT'S a class mount
Initial impression: "WTF is that flaming turd he's flying on?"After familiarizing myself with the quest line I feel slightly better about it... but still a little underwhelmed.
Fire color for elemental shaman...?Makes no sense at all...elemental is more based around the theme of air and wind-stuff...Doomhammer is more based on fire and stuff...What was blizzard thinking to shuffle these around?Elemental artifact is a freaking lightning fist...Enchancement gets doomhammer and a lava formed replica...then why the air elemental for a fire themed spec...Way to go blizzard...hope it gets reversed...Again.
this mount is undoubtedly the coolest one.
wow now i really need to lvl a shaman
I am glad they got creative with this one, but I think this would have been a lot cooler if the shaman were INSIDE the tempest, like the elemental spirit is an extension of their own body. The disc on the back looks kinda weird. i hope they fix it so that you are relatively flat when it is running/flying. As it is it looks silly with the rider sticking off at a forward/side angle. i dont care how grippy your boots are, with the way that thing bucks around, it looks like the rider is about to fall off any time, not like a regal master of the elements.
Did we not perma-kill the Conclave of Wind back in Cata? How the heck are they back?
Pretty awesome looking mount! I'm excited.
while clearly this is one of the most unique and cool mounts they have ever designed, i am still a little disappointed at how they got lazy with the effect, i mean the fire and water ones still have lightning coursing thru them lol, fire should have been more smoky and embers flying, and water dripping with misty spurts flying out, rather then just slap it with with new coat of paint and call it a day. oh well suppose it would be too hard to animate 3 separate visual effects on one model.
Like Wrathion, Thrall doesn't look like he'll be showing up anytime soon which seems to be the trend on this xpac, you're either MIA or KIA
