Cloud Serpent Mount

Postby Mozen » Sat Mar 24, 2012 4:07 am

Here's some reactions from players in one of the biggest WOW related forums in Taiwan.

  • Like I thought, Eastern and Western aestheticism differs wildly (/stare)
  • Mushu from Mulan plus Dojo from Xiaolin Showdown would turn out like this
  • Why does he keep breathing mist...
  • Legs are too long, but then Blizzard do have to accommodate for landing
  • Why don't they just use the dragon from Dragon Ball
  • Head and neck looks like a seahorse, the rest like a mal-nutritious raptor...
  • What's with the breathing XDDDD
  • They should really read up on Dragon Ball
  • This is a seahorse
  • What a heavy smoker
  • I don't know where to start picking...
  • Model's right, animation's a fail.
  • Where did this seahorse come from...
  • ...looks eel...
  • I think the biggest failure is the tail swinging sideways...swinging vertically would be better
  • Cool! But the rear leg should be further back
  • It's an eel...
  • I think it looks real cool.....but the tail should really swing vertically. XD
  • For foreigners this already exceeds full marks
  • Vertical swing should make it right +1
  • He's got a running nose
  • Great!XD
  • Well at least they didn't really model it after the history books
  • It looks like it feeds on cockroaches
  • Animation fail
  • Cloudy running nose serpent
  • How about the designers read up on Dragon Ball?
  • It makes me want to bring out the incense
  • At least it's not too bad
  • There is the theory that dragons come from snakes so they show the same movements XDDD
  • Am I the only one who thinks it's not bad?XD
  • Dragon: "I got a cold"
  • I can imagine the mount sickness you get from this
  • Looks like he got scoliosis from the back
  • It's not bad, but hopefully Blizzard work on it more
  • It's a snake, a snake with a dragon's head
  • The tail is really weird+1...should move vertically+1
  • It's an eel with a cold, look at that inflamed throat
  • Does it run on steam power?
  • What's with that extra skin at the throat?
  • Texture looks like a carp, model's ok, but as soon as it moves it's weird.
  • Plus one for seahorse XDDD
  • Ah...he keeps exhaling, I keep wanting to inhale for him ~"~

Basically the tail moving sideways is a real joke, they obviously have no "real" Chinese in their team. The fact that it keeps breathing steam is a little funny but not that significant. The fact that Blizzard love to add extra room at the throat of whatever dragon they design is also a big minus.

I like the blue and black ones the best, and it took me until the yellow one to realize that's the saddle on it's back and not some weird placeholder rider...

Ah...he keeps exhaling, I keep wanting to inhale for him ~"~

Yeah, but I didn't pay much attention to the saddle. I'm a little worried about the larger races on that saddle, though.

PS: In Chinese philosophy, colors can be associated with the elements, and often dragons are associated with the basic elements according to their color.

Element of Wood - Green (Green/Blue)
Element of Fire - Red (Pink, Purple)
Element of Earth - Yellow (Orange, Brown)
Element of Metal - White (Gold, Silver)
Element of Water - Black (Blue)

I like the black one only, it reminds me of the ink paintings we have around the house when I was a kid.

man, I thought the camel riding animation would make my toon nauseous.

These are like the vomit comet of mounts :P

(I agree with the 'awesome model, fail animation' and leg comments)

Yeah, these might be inducing some motion sickness.

Overall, I think the models are great, but they do need to inhale, and the smoke seems a bit thick.

I liked it. :p I'm actually kind of excited now to get one. Though I started the raptor on 4 toons and never made it past 5 teeth. It will probably be different though, to do the quests, in the place I'm currently questing and hanging, as opposed to having to go back to un'goro. I want a red one I think.
