Please tell me that's a place holder and they're not actually gonna recolor Yogg-Saron.Did they not learn their lesson from Sand Marrowgar?
Well I’m happy to see that the Night elves won’t be fully wiped out in BfA! But something more Highborneish would have been good to!
Like many other posters, I prefer the older darkhound. As someone mentioned, the old darkhounds had an eldritch, hellhound, zombie look to them. Cheshire from American McGee's Alice comes to mind. These new models don't capture the spirit of Tirisfal Glades or undeath. It feels like they held back on the vicious aspect and came up with a Pokemon instead.The new models are welcomed, but it'd be nice if a few beasties kept the old models for hunters.
That Hippogryph is awesome <3
Finally, new flying faction mounts! For the Alliance!
that night elf hippogryph. it makes me so unbelievably happy.I don't need anything else.
I am in love with this new Night Elf Hippogryph.
Hmmm. The herald of N'Zoth creates projections of C'Thun, Yogg-Saron, and Il'gynoth. Perhaps Il'gynoth had more connection to the old gods than previously thought. Perhaps it was the final remains of Y'Shaarj, who was previously thought to have been obliterated but managed to leave a remnant in the Emerald Dream, and upon the corruption of the Emerald Dream it grew more powerful. It has been snuffed out again but was not entirely destroyed so it is possible that Y'Shaarj is not as utterly destroyed as we thought. Of course C'Thun and Yogg-Saron were slain but since they were not utterly destroyed like Y'Shaarg there resurrection is not only possible but also highly likely. Especially given all of Yogg-Saron's whispers lately.
Ooo that hippogryph *drools*
I gotta have those Dark Iron and hippogryph mounts!
My hunter's primary pet is the blue runed darkhound, so I'm pretty damn excited to see him updated with this model ~
The new Darkhound models look so good, they're an extremely faithful revamp to the originals and I wish I could compliment the artist personally because there have been some creatures that have not stayed so true to the original. I love these new versions! <3My one problem with them has nothing to do with the texture or model itself, but rather the skeleton - it seems that darkhounds will be using the coyote rig now, which is a real shame because the original darkhound animation (shared with the skeleton hounds) is quite unique and wasn't used on many creatures in the game. It has walk and run animations that are full of character, plus an idle 'hop' that always made them seem a bit more like playful puppies. I'm also speaking as a hunter who loves to tame these guys so it's a bit personal for me.I can see why they might want the mount to use the coyote skeleton since it's more suitable, but I sincerely hope they'll consider keeping the wild mobs on the original rig.
Is there any way to see the old/current models of a given NPC in the model viewer? Both Wowhead and WowDB have BfA models loading even on non-BfA pages, which makes them rather useless for attempting to compare things. Had to dig up an updated copy of model viewer to get the animations I wanted to compare...
