    makes new grphon and wyrvern models... no news on character models.

    I mean hell, if the new race models look half as good as those updates I think everyone will be impressed.

    looks like the gryphons are using a different skeleton.
  1. Faroth's Avatar
    Love the model updates. Can't wait for the player models to start getting updated and perhaps some of the old models for mounts too.

    I'd love to see the new Pandaria cat models available for older cat colorations (with long saber fangs and claws) like the nightsabers in Teldrassil, Moonstalkers in Darkshore, and panthers in STV.

    don't like the healing sphere change, do like the power strikes change...I'll take it.

    Aimed shot being castable while moving?

    Rerolling MM. This is going to be awesome.
  1. Krekko's Avatar
    A mix of on topic/off topic, I'd love to see them update the older Lion models to the new cat models!

    So as a caster I may actually get to get a cast off vs a warrior.

    Man, even updated, Wyverns look like crap.
  1. uriahworld's Avatar
    Man.. that Exalted change.. 70 is hard to achieve, not impossible. But 60 to easy I'd leave it at 65 if they must nerf any.
  1. betaboxguugi's Avatar
