looks better minus the weird tail.
I believe if you can believe out of nothing an explosion (big bang) happened then how far fetched can god be?

Much much better. The tail is weird because Alar's tail is like that too... when the phoenix models fly the tail tip kind of uselessly waves down towards the body.

awsome =) its looking great. I was kinda disapointed when i first saw the mount- kinda just looked like a mutant star poney robbed of its starts... or a radioactive cloud with wings... I am quite happy with how its turning out now ^.^

Aw, I'll miss the old one. New one's not bad, but I suspect I'm one of maybe five people worldwide who like the current live version of the dark phoenix better ;P

I don't think the current one looks horrible, at least on my hunter. But on my druid, who wears a robe, it looks horrible.

Err... I hate to evidently be the only person in the world who doesn't know this, but: what the heck is the difference between old/new dark phoenix?

Old phoenix is basically just a purple mist in the shape of a phoenix. The new one is an actual body of a Phoenix, like A'lar. :)

Also, when you hoover your curser over the mount, it becomes white and burns your eyes out of their sockets! >.<

Oh! Huh, ok, I see it now. Thanks!

I think I like it not having a definite body better, definitely DON'T like it lighting up like a supernova when targeted, and 99.99% still don't care because, well, it has no bearing on my corner of existence. But now I know. Whee!

Finally is looking more like a dark phoenix and no a translucent phoenix (and looking more like the icon!)
