    Correct. Your point?

    Minus the animation/rigging, the model part takes the most time. It's not like it's just a different coloured battle tank, it's a totally new model with a totally new texture.

    Your tone almost implies it's lazy, or uninspired, when in reality the majority of new mounts like this reuse older skeletons. Firehawks, Pterrorwings, Drakes of the Wind, Fey Dragon...the list goes on.

    His tone does not imply it, he and a lot of us see this as lazy and uninspired. This is a Quiraji mount with a hydra front and a sting at the back. The animation takes more time than the model itself for mounts. That's why blizz reuses so much. I remember in BC when I realised Wyverns use the same animation as cats for running I was like wow, this is not the Blizzard I know here we are now 7 yrs later pushing this concept even more. If you're gonna make a model that isn't new with re-used parts for the animation just give it in game for moderate work. Make the truly unique mounts be acquirable via hard work in game.

    The Blizzard in your mind never existed. In fact, there is not a single game company ever that will make a completely new skeleton for a creature that is supposed to move and behave in similar ways as an already existing creature. The fact that they didn't make a new skeleton for the Ravager isn't lazy. It's responsible. When you are developing a game like WoW, you can't afford to waste resources like that.


    They have done the second-most extensive and intensive thing besides making a whole new skeleton, model and texture. Which is grabbing an existing skeleton, adding new animations, modifying existing ones to be smoother, and making a new model and textures.


    So don't bash them like you do.

    If you don't like my opinion that's too bad. I'd rather have 10 uniquely different mounts than the 200+ we're getting that are recolors, re-used old models, re-used old skeletons and animations.

    The blizzard I'm talking about existed. Each time they put out a game before WoW it had uniqueness down to the unit level

    No. You're literally delusional. It never existed. Blizzard reused skeletons then (a whole lot, too), and it does so now. In fact, they're putting more work into mounts than they used to in the past few years. If you hadn't noticed yet, the majority of the animations on the ravager mount are modified to be smoother and more up-to-date (which was a lot of work), and then it also has quite a few unique animations altogether.


    And "it's my opinion" isn't some infallible defense from scrutiny. It may be your opinion, but I'm allowed to tell you your opinion is stupid if it's literally from a position of ignorance and bias. "My opinion!" doesn't make your posts some criticism-free zone.


    If you don't like that. That's too bad!

    so how can blizz say its on ptr when its out on asian realms already, asia again gets treated better than us
    Asian realms are different in alot of ways
    Same with the fact they have 3 or 4 days lockouts.
    Apart from that, Asian realms have that for months already.

    Its a good change imo, instead of a flat 20% nerf.

    It is currently buyable in the In Game Store on the beta servers. Should come into the Store Sometime after WoD launch or even before it. Better have those dollars ready.

    Man thats really dissapointing. I guess I'l wait for the next awesome in-game mount, Store mounts just removes the sense of reward.
