    What if I told you it was a new model?

    It uses the same animation rig as other mounts, which is NOT something that's new. The Nether Drakes all used the original dragon animation rig from vanilla WoW. Dragonhawks and Nether rays share the same animation rig. Ashes of Al'ar uses the same old Gryphon animation rig from vanilla WoW.

    You want me to continue?

    As someone who this is her first "horse with wings" mount, I adore it, and it looks sick with my priest's Shadowform. While I'd like to see more skeletons for different mounts rather than protodrake everything, I don't think we have much room to complain for a -free- mount promoting a game that is free to download and earn it. They didn't have to give us a hearthsteed.

    From context it is apparent he was referring to the fact that you don't have to pay any additional money to access the mount. Your analysis of the definition of digital ownership is sorta off point.

    Nice flamebait. Reusing a skeleton=/ Reusing models.

    reading the ToS again is fun sometimes. That's the best part about the micro transactions in this sub game. Pay extra for virtual goods you don't own that you are already paying monthly to access.

    It's not the same model. It's the same skeleton. Big difference.

    If you actually used your eyes, you'd see that this mount, although using the same skeleton, actually has a unique run animation. Unique sounds, a slightly different and BIGGER body and the wings are different as well from the other horses using the Hippogryph skeleton (Invincible, Celestial, Tyrael's Charger and now Hearthsteed). The head is also unique, the other horses of the same skeleton share the Invincible type of head.

    I wish the other horses had the same animations as the Hearthsteed, since the other ones run like hippogryphs and their front legs becoming way too short as they run.

    It's a nice, basically free gift from a free game. It landed me at 240 mounts, so I'm happy as a clam with it. It also looks very nice with a shadow priest.

    Ah, the kind of people who go "God is fucking lazy..every bird flies like a bird"

    We have drakes..so..they fly like drakes. We have birds, so they fly like birds. Then we have horses with wings and bats. Flying snakes. A kite. A hover disk. A sky golem. Rockets. Panthers that fly.

    Oh i shut up, I am a white knight and fanboi.

    It is not the best looking mount, but it is ok, and its free. Not sure why people are complaining.

    It's not free. Your 15 bucks a month is paying for it.
    Demand quality for your purchase.

    It's not semantics. New model is new. The skeleton will always be the same because creating new skeletons isn't something you can just do quickly. Really the complaint is dumb. You don't have to like the mount but at least know your stuff first and you godwinned the thread(Thanks) to.

    I agree. All this reskinning is lazy. The only totally new mount models for all of MOP have been the water striders, cloud serpents and store bought. Everything else is a modified older skeleton.

    Actually, those wings came first with the Winged Guardian and Obsidian Nightwing (the slimmer, longer ones). If you look at the body of the Hearthsteed next to Invincible, you can see differences in the shape of it. Hearthsteed doesn't have armor, so they've compensated that by making it "bulkier" looking.

    Overall, I think it looks rather nice. My mage won't be using another mount for a loooong time (matching armor).

    It's not fucking reskinned. They reused the skeleton yes but not reskinned.
