This is may be the first time Alliance gets worse mounts than Horde. All the time alliance was more favorite about mounts, access to unique models and even counts. And seeing horde get smth better for the first time feels very good.
While I think its ok to have just horses, there would have been other options for sure.Still I feel it to be a major letdown by blizz, that horde has at least access to some armored wolf, raptor etc. mounts in general. Sure the Alliance has access to them too some times....but there are no Alliance themed updated highpoly armored horses, mechastriders etc.I dont want those overdramatic dark arena things, but whats so hard about a simple lether, plate or chain armor on regular horses?Reskins and at most girlish looking saddles...well thats the reason I rather prefer my classic lowpoly gryphon (that somehow looks better than the blurry skinned cartoonish feather monster which is the updated version)
They should have just reskinned the old horses, because those have perfectly good animations.
