FOR THE LOVE OF ELUNE, JUST GIVE US THE OPTION TO CHANGE COLORS YOU LAZY BASTARDS!
I'm trying not to whine, because I main a druid and we're already privileged insofar as having instant-cast flight, able to interact with nodes while flying, super-convenience of the dreamway portals to get around the world...But christ almighty, this thing is hideous. I was hoping I might like it more when I actually get to use it and see it from all angles but... nope. Its body is really awkwardly shaped, and more importantly, the way it flies with its head stuck straight up is incredibly unnatural and uncomfortable looking, especially when I'm used to the actually good-looking flight animation on the Sentinel Owl glyph.(Doesn't help that I main a tauren druid, and tauren as always get stuck with the "eh, screw it, just make it brown" colourways.)And yeah, I know I can turn it off, I just want to gripe a little.At least it's not the mage disc, I guess.
I agree with all people saying it sucks we can't have a color switch. We should be able to change the color just like we can with the bear form and cat form by visiting the barber shop.
Same as the npc in Dreagrove. she can be found on the roof by Loganaar.
I'm really torn on this one. This form looks utterly ridiculous and there's only a boring paint job to distinguish races now. I was a cool looking blue bat thing and with this I'm a red derp-owl with an eyebrow crown (or are those owl antlers?) I've switched back, but the utility of an instant cast flying passenger mount is substantial. Why I can't be a slightly larger blue bat that carries people is beyond me.
Thank you, Blizzard, for letting us turn it off.As a Tauren, I had to turn off the chubby owl. The gewgaws and form of the standard flight form make for a much better aesthetic match to the tribal/nomadic Tauren race. To me, it has an aesthetic that aligns pretty strongly only with the Night Elves...chubby Night Elves.
Tyvm for the information!
So totally disappointed with the druid class "mount". Replacing our cool flight form with the owl is so lame, that's not a class mount that's a screw the druids. We were supposed to get a mount. I want the mount, taking away a flight form and replacing it with another is so unfair when everyone else gets a cool mount.
How you can say that, all the other classes get a new mount but druids get nothing but a replacement for a current form. That sucks. And its ugly no matter what color it is.
GD, this form is fugly. I disabled it in less than 5 minutes :(
re blue post: Why would the druid class "mount" not receive the speed boost in flight like the other class mounts on the broken shore?
I hate this mount so much. I love the fact that we can now act as a passenger mount, but they just DEFORMED an owl to make it a rideable creature when it's clearly not meant to be. Honestly, who approved this awful concept?
I think there could be many post like "TOP 10 things I hate about new druid class mount", but I will just point out 2 worst and it's not the appearance, because appearance is personal opinion...1) Missing animations! Like wtf? When I go afk, when I /sit, when I'm picking up a herb or interact with any other objects, this form just freezes in place! Like it's not annoying enough that it flies all the time like some other mounts without walking animation, it just FREEZES in the air, how could this pass any testing? It's so stupid and ugly I can't even describe it...2) You are locked out of it anytime you are in a no fly zone, so often you can't even use this so called awesome class mount we were waiting for so long...Those are my two main reasons I switched back to normal fly form and forgot any class mount exists... The only thing I will miss is probably the ability to carry a passenger, but I can live without that...
FYI! You must have the "Breaching The Tomb" achievement in order to start the quest chain for the class mount.
