Just posted my support on there. Hopefully Blizz will take notice of this thread and we'll see results within a few builds or so :)

Don't forget to add praise for anything you think they did really well. I mentioned the tarantulas because they stood out as popular in the survey here.

Thanks :)

Thanks for getting this started Wain, I really hope we can get their attention with this. :) I encourage anyone here who has alpha access to post their support as well, even if you only want to say a few words. The more people giving polite feedback the better! Liking the posts is also helpful, anything we can do to show that there's enough of a community that cares about this.

I think they are tweaking some of the colors. The blue crab for instance used to be a deeper blue, like the pic we have here. But now its lighter (and I have checked it in various zones with various lighting)

The red crab variant is also a lighter shade. I'll tame one in a moment and post a pic.

Edit: Sorry Val, I just saw your post!

Another example, its pink. The wowhead 3d viewer still has the redder version of the HD crab.

Karkins diamond skin and the truesilver crab seem to be unchanged (at least I can't detect any shade change)

looks like we are getting updated demon dogs!

i completely forgot about these guys but now that i think about it they really did need an update. I actually really like how the red one turned out- and that was my least favorite old model.
i hope they update the rune hounds too.

I feel like the lighting seems off in the alpha right now..? Everything has that sort of foggy, washed out look. I can't tell if it's the models themselves or just some strange lighting.

It's hard to say, Veph. When I first found these particular crabs, I thought that it was just the lighting in the area, so I thought nothing of it. But I found red crabs in another well-lit area and they had the same shading. But you're right, they do look a bit foggy, so it's hard to say whether it is really intentional or not.

Those dark hounds are on a whole different skeleton/animation rig aren't they? I like the update, but didn't realize they were moved to the wolf. I don't know how I feel about that. Maybe they did that since its becoming a mount.

Yeah, they're on the coyote skeleton now. It could be due to the new mount that Blizz is adding (the Darkhound mount) or the old Darkhound skeleton didn't mesh well with the new texture and so they put it on the coyote skeleton.

bear model has changed! the front is now noticeably higher so they don't appear to be sticking their big bear butts out anymore!

Oh interesting...

I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, I suspect it might still be a work in progress (the run/walk animations look a bit awkward), but I'm intrigued.

EDIT: As a note, the classic bear models are unaffected by this model change, they still have the old posture.

EDIT 2: the new animations are up on wowhead's model viewer (I just picked a random bear) http://bfa.wowhead.com/npc=26482/arctic ... iewer:10+0

Oh wow- I love it! I can definitely see how the run animation is a little awkward, but I admit, I never liked the old bear stance and I really love how hulking and menacing this change makes them. Especially the walk animation, which, with their paws thrown out to the sides like that, really carries some powerful weight.

The new darkhound replacement is up on Petopia now. I really like it. :)

The mane is a little larger than the old one - probably that part of it is based on the hyena model, but I think it looks really nice and the colours are for the most part really close. The "white" is the least similar and I'd get it if someone with that colour wasn't so happy with the replacement, but the rest are really good.

The colours are here:

Very interesting to see the new model on the bears - I do like that they look more powerful and imposing than before and seem to make like actual bears. I will say that the head looks like it's hanging a little low in comparison now, but seeing as they're not done and it's only a minor detail, it's not a make-or-break thing. The running animation looks.. majestic. Kind of like they're skipping around rather than running, but there we go :lol:

Also super pumped for the new darkhounds. It's a shame to see the old skeleton go but I don't mind the coyote one that much, and I'll definitely see about taming one of those guys when the time comes :)

I really really really really like the new darkhounds, they look stunning! My favorite is the sickly green one :D
