The "Peach-Silver" colored Mana Snapper in Netherstorm still seems to use the old model. Not super significant, but Petopia lists it as using the new one with all old models replaced. Just wanted to throw it out there, noticed while hunting for Khorium. Might poke around and see if maybe any others are using the old model since in some ways I honestly prefer it.

I went to check these out because I hadn't paid much attention to the mana serpents since becoming tameable. I wanted to compare models to see if I liked them.

When I got out there, I checked all the Mana Sappers around the zone and they all used the new model. Little did I realize I had signed on to the PTR by accident because I've been spending so much time there. So it looks like on the 7.2 PTR, they are all converted to new model. And the lighting difference between live and PTR is night and day, almost literally.

Sorry, you're right that it hasn't changed quite yet. I'll look at it and see if I can set it differently. If not I may just leave it now as it won't be long before the appearance is correct :)

The lighting/shading on these.

Well, if it's getting changed soon, probably fine to leave it as-is. They're doing that stress test today which might even mean this Tuesday or the next. And yeah, the lighting is really weird on the old ones, but I kinda like the fins/spines on the old ones a little better. They seem much more thin, delicate, natural, whatever.

So it's not just me that's finding the new model effects are coming out way too washed out with this skin? I thought I was being paranoid but it's effectively lost all texture where the fins overlap. Maybe that's why they didn't initially implement it.

I've posted on the 7.2 bug report forum here about the white mana wyrm appearance issue:
https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20753617234#1

It's clearly not right and not just a difference in aesthetics. The brightness is so high you can barely make out the texture.

BTW, I fixed up Petopia so indicate the old model is currently still being used. Thanks for the report :)
