    I love the bug with the Model Viewer if you view a mount in it first, then close the model viewer and view something else (non-mount). (View the Emerald Hippogryph > close model viewer > view Bernard). You're able to use the dropdown menu for "Rider Model" and click the button that says "View on mount". Unless the bug in question also upscales the models to be appropriate to rider models, then Bernard is going to be a HUGE battle pet. I think it'd make for a fucking awesome mount, though, aside from the slight clipping issue of the kegs on his sides / the legs of the riders.

    It was a blue tweet a few days ago also I think.

    You think... and you don't have a link to the blue post...

    All this RAF stuff makes me depressed since my country doesn't allow these things.

    Yeah, everybody knew that that Hippogryph will be for RAF/from store. It wasn't proto-drake reskin, only those are obtainable in-game.

    Have been tempted to RAF with myself at times... Too bad it's not available in Denmark, unless that changes in the near future... *shrug* Whatever, I'll get my 200th mount in the next expansion I bet.

    Any chance that, in this PTR build, that the NPC who gives out Raid/Valor/Conquest gear for gold will be up? I'd like to test out a Prot Pally tank that I'm leveling on Live. See what it's like playing a max-level high-geared one.

    He should be on the PTR already. There's the Grevious Flaskataur who gives out the PVP gear right in the shrine and I think the Raid one is over in Townlong Steppes, I know he's somewhere because on the PTR I gave my premade T16 gear.

    Ghost Gryphon is SoR not RaF. It's RaF getting the update in 5.4.1, not SoR. SoR just had a somewhat recent update, they won't be touching it for a little while now.

    Guess I am doing RaF again! And I have a mighty need for that St. Bernard pet, wow.

    Learn your fucking terminology. It's not a reskin - reskin just means that the texture has been changed. Ie. a standard blue drake could be said to be a reskin of a standard red drake etc etc.

    This is a new model. If anything in the shape of the model changes, then it's a new model. And this is quite different in shape in various areas to the regular hippogryphs.

    I can't stand it when people just scream "reskin" without having a bloody clue what they're talking about.
