Continuing the trend of updating creature animations and not saying a word, Blizz has put out the new crab run animation! It's much tider than the older version, with the crab keeping its claws tucked close to its body (carapace?) as it runs. Less vertical bobbing as well, and it gives the crustacean a nice weight!

Either the new animation isn't showing for me or I don't have a very clear memory of the original run. I can't see much of a difference. :lol:

It's not a huge change! I just noticed it because I'm partial to Ghostcrawler and my main complaint about him was that he had a tendancy to wildly wave his big claw as he was running. Well, time to get him out of the stables! :D

The spiky crabs have/had a different run than the old ones. The spiked ones look like someone put them on vibrate when moving at a run. I'm hoping this won't look that way, because they are ridiculous looking running alongside a mount. The old ones have/had a nice, fluid run. Sort of like the Draenor boars vs the old boars

Yeah that's understandable! :) I can't remember the last time I used a crab pet myself so I wouldn't have taken much notice I don't think. It's just a shame that as soon as a new animation is added it overwrites the old ones on the site so I can't compare them and pick out what's different. I'm glad it looks better though, I'll definitely take your guys word for it.
