can you fix the weird smoke cloud puff that happens whenever I mount or dismount? Thanks. I know it's a small issue but it's driving me insane!

I don't think thats a bug. its a new 'special effect' to make mounting look cooler. personally bugs me too.

They added the puff effect for when we mounted a while back. What was new for me was the puff when we dismounted.And yes, I would prefer they eliminated both puffs along with the annoying sound.Getting on and off my carpet, the puff completely encloses my gnome-sized body. Rather distracting and loud.

The avalanche enchant effect is a much more serious problem. It's a free headache...

I guess I never noticed the puff while mounting before. I definitely notice it now while dismounting. At first I thought it was because I was using my frost wyrm and my crimson deathcharger. But when I hopped on my turtle and got it I was concerned.

They keep changing the mounting effect. It had a dust cloud, they it didn't have a dust cloud, then it had a different dust cloud, then they removed it. Now it has another dust cloud.

The puff smoke cloud is even more disturbing when you're a Worgen and Running Free (or stop running). What's smoking? Really. I'm just standing here, revving up to run. Why am I on fire? (No, that detailing is just on my tabard, not me, you ditz!)

I've always hated the noise it makes when dismounting, now they added it while mounting. Twice the irritation!Also, the Refreshment Table sound is AWFUL on headphones. Electronic cicadas.

Yeah, I can live with the magical cloud obscuring the mounting process-- I assume it's there so they won't have to actually animate the whole thing. But it's really not necessary when dismounting IMO.And the 'dismount' noise-- was it really necessary to add that during the mounting process too? I'm assuming these are bugs, but not confident that they'll be fixed.TOTALLY agree that these aren't appropriate for Worgen using Running Wild. There's already a full animation for "mounting" and "dismounting". Why the heck have I been eating that I make noises and emit clouds of smoke when I get down on all fours or stand back up?

Seriously: so annoying! That's never happened to me on either mounting or dismounting. But now it also happens sometimes when my rogue goes into stealth! I don't know where they got the idea that getting onto or off a horse or drake should make a cloud of smoke, but it's fairly stupid.

amen and say it again and again and again

The dismount noise always clued me in to when a rogue had just entered the area and to keep aware of an impending gank.Now I hear the noise when mounting and automatically twitch and look for a rogue ...
