    Default Gorgeous new Unicron Mount!

    My first response was, "YAY - a Unicorn!!!" I was soooo Excited that is until I landed of Rift-Gate and got a very good look at the new Rift Unicorn Mount from the Unicronalia Event:

    http://riftgrate.com/2014/05/20/20th-may-pts-update/comment-page-1/


    This mount is hideous. Unicorns and their relatives the Equine are laughing hysterically everywhere!

    Trion you FAIL!

    Unicorns are meant to be Gorgeous, Flashy, Shimmering, White Ethereal Beauties, running Gracefully through Wooded Meadows with long flowing manes and tails.

    This mount, this "Unicorn" mount is sooooo ...Not - instead it is merely a re-skinned, re-issued old low level nag, painted white with a thing out of it's head and a fugly saddle. *big sigh* why a saddle?

    *Oh btw Trion you do know that graphically moving hair was developed many years ago?*

    It's bad enough we have these so very mediocre character models... you know the ones where every elf looks exactly like every other elf... I see myself a hundred times an hour while playing this game... anyway, you would think that Trion might deliver a nicely NEW created (Meshed & Textured) Gorgeous Unicorn Mount - so inspiring that it is genuinely exciting to do the quests and events.

    Pretty much as expected. I would have preferred it whiter.

    Lol. I think most of us have a similar idea what a Unicorn ought to look like, and that's not it. I can't believe Trion couldn't come up with a new model for that. Not sure why they even bothered with this. At the very least, they should have removed the saddle.

    I think the graphic is fantastic! I hope I am able to acquire either of the Unicorn mounts during the promo; it is only natural that the original Pink Unicorn(tm) ride a fellow refugee... hahaha!

    Unicorns are, in reality, just pack animals. Their myth of magic came from the druids that tended the forests they lived in, but once that magical influence is gone they're basically horses. Just because they happened to evolve a horn for protection doesn't mean they're special. You don't see me calling rhinos magical.

    I'm happy with how it looks. I won't try to convince you, but I think it fits.

    Removing the tack may have been a good move, but other than that, I think it's fine. Here we have a Unicorn (see, I even know how to spell it!) as often depicted-- a white horse with a horn.

    You might want to re-word that.

    I clicked on this thread expecting something very different, and significantly larger.

    Shameful really.

    Really, really disappointing.

    Take a quick look at a unicorn in another game (Tera) and how beautiful and unique it could look...




    And I guess this will be walking a thin line (really laughable if it gets me another forum ban) but I await you know who to come in from the dev team to cry poor over the dev time and resources...

    lol at that unicorn mount.

    now this below is a unicorn mount, classy.




    dont care if it was a reskin, it could've been re skinned and exaggerated the old model a bit better.
    At least gave it a proper unicorn main.



    ill still go for it though as i'm a mount horder.

    It literally looks like the starter mounts in Freemarch and Silverwood with a horn super glued onto its head.

    you would of thought if you was doing a theme based event and getting people all hyped, you would of put effort into it.
