Horde wind riders have a voice!

Unread post by Skyshot » Thu Mar 24, 2011 9:47 pm

No clue if this is a repost or not but I figured I should share. I was mounted on my flyer while waiting on a zep last night on the PTR and did /mountspecial on a whim just to watch my wind rider make the roaring motion.
What I didn't expect was the soft rumbling growl/purr that came out of my wind rider's mouth. It would seem the long time silent horde wind rider has had a sound added to it! :D

(Not sure if the alliance gryphons have a mount special motion/sound.)

Currently, afaik, Alliance gryphons (even the fancy white one) don't do anything with /mountspecial. It'd be nice if we got something though.

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

They have had voices to their animations but ive found it hard to hear, its like a gutteral purr/roar or something (been a long time since ive heard it)

I wish they had a texture revamp...they are really a cool mount but with a really outdated graphic, sad!

yea a tooon of us would love to see new wyverns and i at least-- probably a lot of you guys too, maybe.. would love to see gryphons redone. And of course have gryphons given a voice. I like the wyverns voice, so many loud obnoxious mounts nowadays

They finally gave the gyphons a mountspecial too!

They now rear up like the hippogryph but not near as much. And they are still silent.
