I was incorrect about the others. Faulty memory and I wasn't comparing at that point. :) But those two have definitely been changed.


Weird, since they both had really good, accurate icons to begin with.


The current Kun-Lai Runt icon on live looks like a bear paw from the druid skill list rather then anything else. :3 The new one is a Kun-Lai yeti face!


My mistake then. I thought it already used the yeti icon.

Also, I hadn't seen this before, but there are icons for two new python colors. I will get all of them, of course, but I'm loving the green one!

The Thunder Crocodile looks more like it's a Dimetradon baby than a Crocolisk one.

Cute as they are, the frog models clip, stretch, and twitch a lot when placed on that old model.
Hopefully there are some future skeleton improvements to come..

Ugh. I actually liked the *old* Ji-Kun Hatchling better than this one. :/ A *lot*. I don't hate this model, I wouldn't mind seeing it on something, but I'm more neutral to it, where the other hatchling I *LOOOOOOOOVED*.

Compare.

I prefer the new one.

If it was a Stunted pet and not a Hatchling, I'd prefer the old one, but it's a hatchling.

I made two short videos for those without the ability to view PTR models...

Funky Frog Jump
Funky Frog Idle

I would've made them into .gifs, but I'm not sure how. I really, really hope that the clipping issues are fixed... it's almost a dealbreaker for me! :(

Quickedit: Wowhead now has the frogs in their modelviewer. Upon checking those, it seems obvious that they're going to be fixed... see for yourself.

If you watch for a while, the frog twitches, sinks back into itself, with its leg entirely entering its stomach, freezes, and then resumes breathing.
:shock:

I liked the old version much better too, even if it did look a little bit more like a teen, but then it's not like everything has to be all hyper "cutsiefied" to make it work as a chick/pup/young version of a beast. Just look at Flayers, Clefthoofs, sporebats, etc.

I guess it could leave the older version open to add as a possible hunter pet? I do really like the model and skin, and it's pretty much a feathery raptor right? :)

That was exactly my thoughts also, but I still think he looks dam spiffy :)

There's also this "Cookbot" pet in the database in the latest patch. I haven't seen any reference to it anywhere yet, but maybe I missed it:

The guy actually stirs his frying pan as he moves. Pretty cool.

I'm pretty sure that's the one they're calling Pierre.

I am surprised to see the Electrofied Crocolisks as wild battle pets. Hmmmm

Leave the new ones the mini pet, and make the old one a tameable, problem solved. :ugeek:

Mumper said on his twitter that we can expect "the green and the blue" frog models for 5.2. That's disappointing that we won't see them all at once, but I guess it's something to look forward to for those interested in the brown and black.

Apparently Mumper also said that the new koi come from fishing around Panderia.

That I wouldn't mind at all.
I still have to sit down and fish for Nat Page's rep. It'll be good to have some extra motivation, as, apparently, I am lacking some :P
