    I apologize for my english not my first language

    The Hippogryph is just another reskin. The faerie dragon i'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's from the 10 year anniversary. They're just giving night elves some love mountwise anyway!

    Emerald Hippogryph was just confirmed to be a new Recruit-a-Friend reward.

    Friends In Places Even Higher Than That (New) Obtain an Emerald Hippogryph mount through the Recruit-a-Friend program. Account Wide.

    Not even just, that was like an hour ago.

    It means nothing, it's just a fancy mount with a model you don't see players riding that often (flight paths aside) to give to recruiters as part of the new RAF2.0.
    Permanently unsubscribed as of 03/10/2014.

    Been a fun run guys, but the game's officially moved into the "Milk the Playerbase" phase. And I for one don't intend to stick around as the cost of expansions go up, content in them goes down, and raids become further and further apart.

    To be honest. I wouldn't be surprised if the Faerie Dragon was the 10th anniversary mount.
    The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was... inconsolable.

    It's a fair assumption that Faerie Dragon be the 10th anniversary mount.

    But 10th anniversary is 13 months from present. I think blizzard can cook something else. It's not something of high priority as for now.

    I'm just gonna say what everyone either a) expecting to hear in this thread or b) is thinking.

    Emerald Dream Confirmed.

    I can see what you see not - vision milky then eyes rot. When you turn, they will be gone - whispering their hidden song...

    Maybe the next expansion is about the Emerald dream - both mounts would fit.

    Exactly. Anyone who calls it a reskin is just.. ha-ha-ha.

    But it's recyling of old content and just a reskin deluxe.

    Same model, same skeleton, other skin -> reskin
    Example:
    vs.

    Same model with some extra polygon details, same skeleton, other skin -> reskin deluxe
    Examples:



    New model, same skeleton, other skin -> low efford new
    Example:
    vs.

    Different Model, different skeleton, different skin -> really new
    Examples:

    (with WotlK)

    It'd be cool if that mount was from the 10th anniversary. Celebrate 10 years of World of Wacraft and 20 of the Warcraft franchise in style by giving us a mount instead of the ol' celebration package.

    What you call a 'reskin deluxe' is a remodel. And what you call a reskin is a recolor.


    Recolor = same skeleton, same model, even the same textures but just a palette swap.
    Reskin = same skeleton, same model, but different textures. Say, an eye has a different shape.
    Remodel = silhouette change. Different beak, different wings, added 3D feathers (like the Hippogryph)
    Completely new = built from the ground up. Skeleton, model, texture, everything. Building new models becomes redundant after some time, because there is no use in giving, say, a cat and a tiger a hugely different and unique skeleton because their posture is mostly the same.

    Remodel = different skeleton, and those examples have the same skeleton so it's a reskin.
