That Mecha Parrot seems great ! But is that just glitchy mecha spiders ?
Ohhh that Mech Parrot mount looks nice! Like matching the pet too.
Spiders aren't new, they were released in Legion.
Aye.. Parrots are adorable!
that's cool, but where would they come from? glory of the <insert name of the 2nd raid here>?
Gnomeregan Pet Battle dungeon, maybe?
200 % that parrots are going to be sold by dollars in in-game shop
Hope the parrot mount is a engineer recipe.
So they giving us robot parrot mounts before they let us have Highmountain eagles? What in the actual ass?
Ah great. I was hoping that mechanical spider pet from the Gnomeregan pet dungeon was just a placeholder. They were just using a red tarantula model. Seems they'll actually be small versions of the hunter pet. Good change.Also awesome on that mechanical parrot pet/mount combo. Hopefully there'll be a Hunter Pet version too at some point.
my gnome outlaw rogue needs that mecha parrot mount NOW
Blizzard sometimes make variations of models in slightly lower quality for pets. This could be lower poly count (basically 3D resolution), fewer or different animations fitting for a battle pet, and removal of unnecessary geosets. Other issues include things that simply don't scale very well, like certain animated textures and particles. Imagine if the spiders actually just became one big puff of smoke, because the exhaust didn't scale all the way down.Previous examples are Runeforged Servitor, Boneshard and Blightbreath, each having a dedicated "pet model".
