Theory: The Mechanowolf is blue because Alliance and Cobra is red because Horde.

You could be right with the colour theory. I mean, it’s still just luck that there was a red and a blue unused skin in an appropriate family, but maybe that’s what guided their choices.

Btw, I assume Mechagnomes will be able to tame mechanicals without training it, but I haven’t confirmed that yet.

At least the Alliance got a good race. Poor Horde got creepy little furry goblins that exist purely on memes and one director's weird interests. Boomer Mechagnomes get awesome racials, a crazy cool mount, and decent heritage armor, not to mention the extremely lewd sexual innuendos they have with their flirts. On the other hand, Vulpera have only one good racial, the rare drop hyena mount with an ugly canopy, boring heritage armor that looks like quest gear (real shame, could've been neat desert gear instead), and they do that stupid dance from WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY. You can tell they put way more effort into making Mechagnomes fun while they just threw Vulpera together to appease a tiny group. The only flaw with Mechagnomes is that they're not actual Mechagnomes, but manlet and womanlet cyborgs.

Also, I can't get enough of that Mirror Image racial. It's so ridiculously useful on a Hunter or Warrior.

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
Oh wait...you can't!

Just cause you don't like the vulpera doesn't mean many others, myself included, aren't super hyped for them. I don't care for the mechagnomes but you don't see me going on a rude tirade about how "bad" they are, cause they're not they just aren't my cup of tea.

It's funny because there's more of a consensus that Vulpera are a better race than Mechagnomes other than if we're talking racials (which might be nerfed before they hit live, mind you)

Three new mounts; a white-brown Cloud Serpent (for those of us that didn't pvp our butts off in the past), blue version of Ji-Kun to match the tameable blue version, and another recolor of the amazing nightsaber remodel. Not so keen on the nightsaber's color, but oh man I want that cloud serpent.

Please for the love of God, Blizzard, take this opportunity to add in a Qiraji Battle Tank mount or an Aqir creature based on that model/structure.

I wish they'd stop using that new Nightsaber model.
Or at least NOT use it when they update the old NE mounts.
It's face is wrong and it really bugs me LOL

Siggy under construction!
