New race?

Unread post by rubybeam » Thu Apr 07, 2011 9:41 pm

I was exploring the wonders of modelviewer the other day to come across a fairly interresting little guy
Image

So far there not much about this little guy, he also comes in red and a blue/green colour and what I nodiced was that he had an unusal amount of emotes

Image

you think that blizzard going to make this a playable race one day? or maybe just have your character transform into it for a short amount of time.

All I know is I want to play one >.>

Looks like he uses the worgen skeleton to me, so maybe his emotes are tied to that.

Aye, that's Maloriak. His model also has a bunch of alternative colors, which leads me to believe we'll see more dragonspawn like him.

I also exist on DeviantArt.

Actually, he uses the kobold skeleton. I snagged a screenie of him for Wowhead from the PTR, and watched him wander around for a while.

I agree, I'm pretty sure they just imported the behaviors for the worgen skeleton which is why he has all those (unnecessary) behaviors. While it's possible they may give us a drakonid-type race someday, I really don't think they'll use this one, partially because it already uses the rigging for a player race (all player races use unique rigging, although some NPC races borrow it, as in the Broken using the Tauren rigging), but also.... dear god those wings look stupid, fake, and stuck on. XD I'd like to think a player race would have more elegance.

If we do get drakonids, I expect they'll be a reworking of the drakonids we already have.

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

Theres another dragon model i found on WMV but i cant open it since i am camping Time-Lost and im not sure when the next spawn is but this creature here is the original undead model:

Image

the dragon creature i found on WMV has that same model but its an orange and red drakonid like mob. Never seen em before so i dunno if its in-game or not. I really wish i knew the model name cause i would quickly pop off WoW to open it but i really dont know what alphabetical letter its under :(
