There should be a slime saber hunter pet, if they’re adding the mount, might as well have a wild version in the maldraxxus slime pools along with the slime giants, would be a cool cat for everyone, but best for forsaken

Jelly cat sounds amazing, but we have a ton of sabers.

Image

Nerubian swarmer ... if it was just a nerubian, sure. But swarmer is just going to be a blood tick reskin. Which granted is cool and all but not that unique; plus any scourge related stuff in future could easily give us one.

Image

Give me this instead :(

Image

Tome could be cool. Definitely unique. Obviously a surfing mount like rugs.

Image

Caterpillar... they could do something super creative with it but still not super excited by one, since we're already getting a ton of bug-mounts in SL. And nothing can top the moths.

Image

Image

Then ancient.. We don't have anything like it yet, not even close. Nothing very leafy or tree-like. So I went with ancient.

Totally get the argument for ancients being a new model, I just can't imagine the mount being anything but huge and clunky. x.x Not really into huge, clunky mounts, so slimecat got my vote!

None of them really seem all that awesome to me. Voted for the book, the others just seemed too potentially bulky and I'm just not into slimes or bugs.

I was going Swarmer (not a lot of work needed their!) but then I saw OOZE KITTY!

Sorry... that's my vote.

Can't believe the pet community isn't even excited about the slime cat possibility, when the existence of the bigger slime saber model would open the door for...TAMEABLE SLIME CATS

Still hoping the loser mounts get made eventually just aren't the free mount tbh

Likewise. We have a ton of them, and I am sure that Blizz will add the rest of the mounts over time, it is just that they won’t be for free or necessarily easy to obtain.

I would rather us be given something unique than something we already have many versions of.

I don't think they'd reskin a blood tick for that type of nerubian, the bloodtick itself is uses the rigging of the nerubian flier. They'd probably just use the nerubian swarmer rigging if not the same model plus some tacking.

The swarmer model would work well. I'd assumed it was the flying one, and so would look too much like the blood tick, but if it was the ground one it wouldn't be bad at all.

I guess the point is moot, though. The tree is going to win. Unless through some miracle they announce they're making all of them anyway. :)

This rider pose would be better than surfing:

I hope the other eventually make it, I didn't quite reach brontosaurus money, so I have some to spare. And the runners up here have potential to be cooler than the alliance motorcycle was.

Nerubian is behind! If you haven't voted for it yet, do so, and get 34753 of your friends to vote for it too.

Wandering Ancient was far enough ahead today, that I voted for the caterpillar instead--it's neck and neck with the slime cat!
