I hope they give us a new and proper seagull model. I know it won't be a priority or anything, but damn it needs it.
Check out some arty stuff?

Will Olm the Wise and Arcturis get new models as well?

I don't see Olm getting a new model. But that would be kind of neat to see him with one of the new models.

Arcturis though. That is a curious thought. Him with the new bear model IF they fixed the sway back would be pretty sick IMHO. I doubt it but really of anyone who also deserves an update it would be good old Arc. I could live with him having a 70's porn star goatee and popeye arms. :lol:

Those kodo are great. I hope they are tameable.

Honestly I'd love to see a new bear spirit beast rather than replacing Arcturus. That would just piss way too many people off. It would be neat to get another spirit beast that's not spectral, too, like Loque and Gara.

I hope so. I included them because there's now a really good case for a "thunder lizard" type family including kodos, stegodons and mushan. Especially now the kodos look scalier and more like lizards.

They're clearly revamping the kodo mount at the same time, which means they'll have to produce updated skins for all the mount colours, and there are loads more of those than there are wild colours.

Like, of all these:

I really, really hope those mount skins get non-mount versions as well, this time, as there are so many cool ones. All they have to do is publish the skin without the harness pasted on it!

I managed to find the kodo mount model and look at the skins. They've only produced three skins so far, all corresponding to the original mount skins (though one has been given a different colour name to its original). But I'd expect them to produce the rest before they're done.

On the official forums I've posted some feedback and a request that they make non-mount versions of the mount skins while they update them. Hopefully this isn't too hard to do in parallel and would create a much greater variety of wild kodos, and maybe one day tameable ones :)

I still don't get the hate for the bear. The back is awful, but the rest looks pretty fine to me. :s

That poor bear has always deserved better, but this isn't it. :/ Because he's transparent, he looks blockier than any other bear. I think that's one of the reasons I ended up not clicking with him as much in the long term, sigh.

I am however open to him having a whole new bear model though.

And tamable kodo???? Where do I sign up for that petition?? :lol:

Speaking of Arcturis, what about those undead bears in Krasarang, Deepwood Spirits? Did it get a makeover like the other old bear models?

I've looked for the spectral skin, but not seen it. It may be that I have not guessed the file name but i think they just haven't made one (yet).

So these are interesting...

The second one has 'frost' in the name so I'm guessing it has a neat effect on it that doesn't show up well in a still image. I wonder if they're going to consider replacing the old Skoll models with these for the artifact? It's a shame we didn't get a new wolf based on that awesome boss model, but I'd be happier with these than the recycled Northrend worg if that's indeed what this implies, though I guess we'll have to wait and see if those alternate colour versions show up on the Draenor model.

I'm more so interested in this. It looks like it was made with the armor second, meaning that it would have an unarmored model, which would make for a great beast around the Nightborne areas, and a possible tameable spider model.

I've been craving a more realistic type of spider model, so fingers crossed.

The spider mount with the armour removed is perfect as it is. They could easily make it a beast.

I can't see a non-mount version, or any other colours, yet though.
