Ever since 8.0 hit, I've noticed that something was off with the Draenor raptor model. It never truly clicked with me until recently, when I finally obtained the Skullripper mount and realized just how out of place it looks while riding it. Simply put, the raptors seem to be "flat" with no shading effects present.

At the moment, this could be due to one of three things: Either the model itself has erroneously lost its shading effects, has a glowmap on its entire body instead of just its eyes (I tried to see if that raptor model is affected by darker skyboxes, such as Tyrande's End Time area, but that boss hasn't been available to me the past couple days), or it's simply a clientside graphical bug.

Has anyone else noticed this, or is it just me?

I also noticed how out of place they look, the only colors that are fine is the Gon color and the shaman raptor skins as well, they should rework the lighting and shade on the models, even the vicious war raptor doesn’t have the effect either
