    New Shaman ghost wolf model -- thoughts??

    For those of you who haven't seen it and it also shows it with "Arctic Wolf" glyph:











    I like the new model, but it seems a little small in scale to me. Thoughts???

    Here is an image for those of you who can't pull up the video:

    I recently remade my shaman (deleted a fusty old dwarf after he cast stoneform atop mount Neverest and stayed stone (I logged out real quick)) created a Draenei to be more feisty, and now he's gonna look like a fierce wolf, as opposed to one that's a bit brainless!
    This model seems to have a spark of intelligence the old didn't, more Keen Hunter of the Night, less Brainless Coyote.
    Yay!

    I go against the trend and say I totally didn't need this graphic overhaul

    We also get a new Ghost Wolf specific glyph. Gain 60% additional movement speed while being out of combat and in ghost wolf form. Diasbled in arenas & bgs.

    I used Ghost Wolf a lot, even for minor distances; especially during leveling this will come handy.

    I'm outraged they spent time changing this model when the resources could have been better used on a new store mount.

    I second this emotion. No more Shaman stuff, and more store stuff for everyone!

    Seriously though, nice model. Like it much more than the old one.

    It looks much smaller than the current one, but the current spectral glyphed one is ridiculously large. Is the new model too small?

    Indeed, they should make more pets/mounts on the Blizzard store. Who cares about free stuff? Seriously?

    ... I might actually want to level my shaman next, didn't touch him since the ending of WotLK :P

    I like it.

    Feels bigger than the old one which I still like a lot more, but you can't say no to updated textures... at least it's not a Worg (ugh), I guess?

    Meanwhile in Moonkin land....


    I really hope they update their model too, it's way overdue.

    I remember hearing them say that since you currently have the Glyph of Stars that the Moonkin model update isn't on the horizon anytime soon.

    I love that they updated ghost wolf form, but I don't think they spent extra time making ghost wolf form it looks like they are just using the new creature wolf form but made it ghostly.
    Now my shaman wont look like a mangy mutt any more

    The only reason shamans got this is because wolves in general got a new model so might as well extend it to shaman form. When moonkins get an update as NPCs the form naturally gets one with it. Meanwhile Glyph of Stars allows you to use the new player models which are better looking anyway

    It's a ghost. It's a wolf. It has higher fidelity. It does what it says on the tin.
