    I think many NPCs/mounts need AT LEAST new skin/paint coating. Could use same old crappy model but new skin would make a huge difference.

    I dont see them update the old models.
    Why would you remake the old model? You'd have to remove the old model to update it to the new model.
    And while you do so, you would make some people unhappy. You just could add the new models as new mounts & making both group of people happy.
    Probably not all people, since some people always have to fcking complain, but you get the point.

    Do you think that the new updated character models will look out of place on the older mounts? Though I don't see it happening, personally I think it would be the icing on the cake if Blizzard released racial mount visuals updates along with the character updates in WoD.

    I understand that these things take man hours, which is why I don't see it happening anytime soon. But what do you guys think?
    I think the older model mounts def need some love. The newer mounts are very well done, but it makes a majority of the older mounts look lacking. I don't expect it to be one of their top priorities but I could see it done eventually.

    Honestly? New ones should be added. Also if you ask me, one remake should be done. The Wotlk drakes look stupid because we sit on their neck. We really should sit behind their wings, on their backs, like with cataclysm drakes. (And I mean the start of wotlk drakes, not the Ulduar ones, Proto-Drakes). Rusted Proto-Drake is still my favourite mount!

    Would be nice if the undead horse mounts actually opened their jaws completely instead of being fused at the teeth. Looks so weird!The lower jab bends in such a weird way if you do /mountspecial.

    That depends on how much you care about actual lore and the race you're playing. Why get a bunch of random high quality weird animals instead of what this game was intended to be. Warcraft. Seeing worgs, raptors, riding rams, mechano striders, night sabers, kodo, horses, skeletal warhorses, all with the model fidelity and animations of today would be awesome to bring Warcraft to life more so. It's a crime the new night elf racial mount is only available via PVP, because lore fans are notorious for being huge pvp nuts,...

    Since when should complaining stop something from happening, considering nothing in this game will ever be free from complaining?

    I would love to see a human horse puts it's head down like my hippogryph when galloping.

    Another cool option I could see adopted/assimilated from Wildstar is the temporary /sprint move mechanic they have, like you see in shooters. You can haul ass for 5-10 seconds. Giving mounts a gallop and a canter animation, players with their normal run and a different haul ass animation than the rogue sprint,... I'm going into some dangerous places for these here parts. I'd better put on my helmet.

    just add new models of the existing mounts and keep the old ones
    You kill or you die. Or you die and you kill.
    Tell them only that the Lich King is dead and that World of Warcraft died with him.
