OH YAY!More skins for hunter pets, CHECK. Any new skins for druids, in development.Real AoE threat for all hunter tenacity pets, CHECK. A real AoE threat for druids, "swipe is working as intended."I know BM hunters got screwed recently, but seriously, enough is enough. Can we work on the bears that matter before we give the hunter bears all the love?On a hunter positive note...With all the ships that are constantly traveling from Northrend to the eastern kingdoms and Kalmidor, wouldn't it be nice if some rare pets were to find their way to certain areas of the old world for people to kill for an achievement or train? I mean who doens't want 37 lvl 80 hunters riding across the barrens looking for a rhino with a special skin that was somehow transported when it was very young and then introduced back into the wild to be raised by kodos?

Worry not: this is a cheap ass model they threw together in twelve seconds as a way of throwing a bone to Hunters who don't want to farm the other spirit beast. No work actually went into this model.

Have you SEEN the tauren cat? This thing is a Sistine Chapel ceiling painting compared to that horrendous thing.

Granted, it DOES manage to look better than Tauren cat form. A low bar, to be sure, but one it passes.But Raze's point was that this can't have taken TOO much development time away from more important things, since it's using a model and skin that are already in the game. Which is also true.Though I'm sure that doesn't mean most Tauren druids wouldn't be quite happy to have this kind of "cheap-ass model" in place of what they have today. :P I presume Blizz's logic is that they ARE working on improved druid forms, and therefore they feel it makes little sense to give druids a throwaway model change in the meantime when they're just going to replace it with something way more awesome anyway.
