Rants/Raves/Thoughts On 5.2 Tameables

Unread post by Kurasu » Thu Jan 03, 2013 8:42 pm

Just putting this out there before poor Kalli's thread gets any more cluttered up! Keep your comments and such to here if at all possible, and leave her thread primarily for general information, please. :) It will make it easier for people keeping track!

As with the other one, no. I'm not some 'comment-cop' who hates seeing people gab and rattle. In fact, that's why I want to give it a thread to go to: so it's easier to find all the chatter, too!

I am a major fan of dinosaurs, loved them since I was little. That being said, T-rex and Trike are probably the most famous in terms of popular Dinosaur culture (before Spino came in) and having them both as pets to battle alongside me? it's a dream come true.

Two things have been on my mind though.

first off, we all know trolls have some sort of bond with animals, sure. But all I know is the trolls having a good bond with Raptors. I was never aware they had close connections with many other types of dinosaur. That being said, they seem to be the prime military force for trolls. Obviously we'll have a troll or two with mastery over them. (Hello ZA bosses)

The second thing is, this entire concept has me very surprised. I mean, I didn't exactly dig in to the Pandaria lore scrolls and all that, but where did it mention any sort of clue Dinosaurs existed nearby? Though I remember the whole "lost world covered in mists" excuse with certain dino films. ( so for the people complaining about the asian theme. We haz dinosaurs. So deal with it)
That being said, I'm very excited for what they do with this.

Have I said dinosaur too much? think I need another couch to pass out on.

I don't like the non-organic Triceratops models. And I'm not liking the big nostrils on the new Devilsaurs.

I'm extremely hyped for all the new "dinosaur" models we are getting this patch! Always been a huge dinosaur fan as well as a devilsaur fan so all this content tickles my fancy! :D

Here's to hoping that the new blue devilsaur is a tameable beast! I've always secretly wished there was a blue devilsaur as blue is my favourite colour and devilsaur my favourite hunter beast in game. (I never properly bonded with any of the current devilsaurs regardless the fact that I really want to, but the colours just didn't click with me personally.)

The colours for the Dire Horns (so far) are amazing as well. I'll have the most lovely horrible time deciding which I'll pick.

So excited! A patch full of trolls and dinosaurs, my two favourite things in WoW! Arghdkfhgjghsdf! :D

I am excited about the direhorns. I actually can not think of anything that I do not like about them except that I wish there was a grey organic skin.

The new devilsaurs though... there is just something about the shape of that head that reminds me of an arabian horse. No offense to arabian horses but... I much prefer the head shape of the old model to this one. That said, I will most likely be taming a brown one for my Greymon.

Haha, yeah I'm with you on the snout shape. It looks broken to me, or like they ran into a wall nose first. I love the new scale details and the bodies in general, but I'm not a fan of the heads at all on the new devilsaurs. I much prefer the Vanilla ones.

I'm still really glad to see them added though. :)


I've got my eye on the red dire horn, but I'd be happy with any of the colours, their models are amazing and I adore them.

Azurelith I think got my thought on the new model right...I don't like them much either, head-wise. I also don't like how the mouth is shape, it's jaw, to me, looks weaker than the older ones.

The dire horns tho, look awesome. The organic ones are really nice, not a big fan of the stone ones tho. The thing that throws me off is them not being exotic. They scream exotic to me, so it'll just seems weird seeing non-BMs with them. My biggest complaint about them tho, is that they're too small when tamed. They look tiny next to a human, I'm worried about how tiny they will be next to my male draenei.

I love the new Direhorns, but am on the fence about the devilsuars......and then there's that horrible porcupine.... It needs to not exist or at least have the decency to wear a bag over its head. Sooo creepy. I'm hoping the flying raptors...or whatever they are will be tameable. So cool looking.

I actually like this because Arabian's are my favorite breed of horse. I was wondering why these models appealed so much more to me than the older ones. Thanks for helping that thought process along! :lol:

I'm very very excited indeed, though I have to admit I too am on the fence about the devilsaurs. Their arms look funny to me, I'll have to see them in-game. I'm also hoping they have shiny scales like the vanilla ones, because that shine has always really appealed to me and I'd hate it if these ones had dull scales.

Totally hate the porcupine but oh well, I've never like "transparent blue with glitter" spirit beasts. xD

*crosses fingers* please increase dire horn size please increase dire horn size please increase dire horn size...

The thing that bothers me most with the new devilsaurs is their tongue. XD It really irks me how thin it gets toward the back, like it's just barely hanging on there. :P But other than that it's pretty cool. The face is a tad odd but I'm gad these guys are here. The devilsaur family needed more variation and it got it! :D And hey, I'll definitely tame a few on some characters. ^^

Yeah, that bothers me too, Mia. It's a shame, but I doubt it'll get changed.



Anyone else hoping that next big build brings more animal models? I am actually surprised that Blizzard hasn't used this opportunity to make a new snake model yet.

But man, it really would be cool if there were a few more dinosaur models. I've seen something about compies?


But I still hope the pterodactyls will be tameable. They're just way too awesome and the one issue with them can be fixed easily. (implementing an ability that allows you to switch your pet between a flying and walking animation with no other difference than that.)

I would like both to be tameable, but I was talking about the new 5.2 ones. The old ones are called Pterrordaxes while the new ones are apparently just called Pterodactyls. Plus, the latter is the only one with a flying and ground animation while the former has only the flying animation. x) (bat skeleton)

I would kill for the new Zandalari pterodactyls to be tameable, they're the most gorgeous models I've seen in ages. I wouldn't care if they were stuck in a permanently flying status like a bat. Hell, I'd even take them grounded. I just want one.

In some walkthrough of the island, I saw two things:


1) Armored Devilsaurs that aren't bosses.

and

2) Trolls on Razzashi Raptor Mounts.



Needless to say; GIEF.

Plsplspls Mistah Blizzard.

Yupppppp.

I'm damned lucky I'm not a huge fan of the olive or I'd be in trouble. For a minute there, I had thought I was anyway.

Of course, I haven't seen it in person....
