    Default Please re-do the new mounts. They look lame.

    They dont look "spectral" or ghostlike at all.

    Looks like you basically took the old mounts and passed them through an old b/w copier or newspaper printer.

    Please re-do.

    They're the exact same style as the Spectral Horse. If you don't like it, don't get it.

    i like them but i agree that they look bad

    its like they only removed the textures and colors and thats it

    they should have somekinde of effect on them and make them slightly Transparent like a ghost or something.

    The spectral horse got away with this because we are familiar with ghostlike horses in mythology like the headless horsemen.

    But a spectral Spider? Raptor?

    All it did was emphasize how bad the texturing the spectral horse is.

    As for not getting it...I wont. It's ugly.

    I like how you can see the sinew and muscle, they look a bit rotted and don't have a skin covering anymore.

    just like the spectral horses they look quite good on the very high graphics settings and have a ghosty foggy effect but on lower graphics settings they are just black and white and look kinda meh.

    think I will get the ash strider

    Actually, the spectral sinewy Najmok looks a hell of a lot more interesting than the regular unarmoured Najmoks. I've got my eye on a few of those. The other 3, less so.

    Never cared for the spectral mount... it looks too solid to be "spectral". I didn't like the other mounts at all to begin with (except for the Chocobo), and I sure don't like these versions.

    Gotta love the "I don't like this personally so the game designers need to cater the content to my liking" mentality.

    I think they look neat. The Najmok is especially kinda creepy. I was however expecting mounts with crazy mathosian looking armor and a purple aura since they were described as "Deathtouched". But, as others stated, you don't HAVE to get these mounts - and there are enough to choose from in the game at the moment that you aren't in any way stuck with these choices in the first place.

    I second that, they look really bad. {Should have made a black cat mount for example, since it's pumpkin season.)

    But these are all the "old" mounts just with a worse look/texture.

    The distinct lack of spectral Yarnosaurs makes me sad.

    Why Trion, why? Do you enjoy making me cry myself to sleep?

    I don't like the new mounts.

    On Low Quality Renderer they don't really look that great.

    It was probably something easy they could throw together as developers so they could spend more time on the expansion. I'd much rather have them blow us away with the expansion than have a new world event mount.

    I'd be surprised if anything looked good on the LQR.

    Tell that to the tailless Landslide complainers.

    I think it looked fine without the tail. it's stance is more gorilla-like, so I didint see a need for the tail.

    Buttocks FTW!!!

    As for "catering to my liking"...if they like my sub money, they will listen.

    It all comes down to keeping the customer happy. A lot of you fanbois seem to forget that because you have become no-life slaves to the game.
