    Seems like a weird mix of a flying reindeer and the ugly twin brother of Discord. :S

    Hideous mount. Wtf is it supposed to be? With these things costing extra money you would think extra effort would be put in to make it look appealing

    edit: Yeah, Quilin is probably more accurate, as this is all supposed to be based more on Chinese culture than Japanese.

    Well.. its not a qilin as the qilin mount already exists in game for everyone that purchases MoP deluxe.

    Meh. I'll stick to my glorious jade Voltron cat or my cloud mount. Wind serpents are gorgeous but they give me a headache with their flying style. I'd definitely take this mount if it was in game or an anniversary gift though.

    WTF is the hunter special effect supposed to be?

    My thoughts exactly! First thing that came to my mind "Is that a flying goat?"

    Wow, that is a ugly mount, a really ugly mount, without texture was better.

    I have no idea what that thing is supposed to be, but it's ugly and since it's a store mount I already don't want it.

    Anyone else completely uninspired to do challenge modes? The gear sets are ugly and transmog only and the mounts are also not appealing.

    OMG that mount is horrible, what's the purpose of that ridiculous smoke? I think was impossible but the design of armors and mounts in this game is becaming worst and worst, why so much colored smoke and lights, is this a circus?

    All the people calling it ugly probably don't even know what it is... It's a qilin, a Chinese dragon-goat giraffe. I for one might buy it because of how authentic Blizzard is keeping the oriental feel of the game.

    EDIT: Here's a link to the Wikipedia article if anyone wants to see what a qilin looks like; you might see them in Chinese restaurants or in the Chinese district in the city if your city has one (i.e. Chinatown in NYC). Aside from the face being more goatish than dragonish, I think they nailed it. The name of the Quilin/Quilen in game right now was probably inspired by qilin, but Blizzard didn't have a place in put in actual qilin, but now they do. The Quilin/Quilen in game are inspired by Shishi, the chinese guardian lions, which you might see, more often than qilin statues, in Chinese restaurants as mentioned above.

    I think it's funny that the windsteed mount look like a Qilin (chinese folklore creature), while the Quilen in WoW look like a chinese lion or foodog... :P

    It could be the only one of its kind, I still think the mount looks completely terrible. Especially for it to be a Blizzard store mount. At least some others such as yourself like it and can appreciate it.
