Dear blizz, please make the wyvern model not look worse than the WC3 ones before you make more wyvern mounts.

Yep. Was about to say, not even making them spectral can make a windrider look good.

I imagine it being transparent will be ok for shadow priests

WoW wyverns look as bad as old tauren cat form to me. Since I don't have one of the store mounts, my toons either get a profession that has a mount or eagerly look forward to getting welfare drakes from Culling of Stratholme.

and it's not only that they look absolutely horrible, it's how they run on the ground that disturbs me profoundly. I bought the Sparkle Pony when it came out just so me alts didn't have to fly on that thing. I hope they get an overhaul someday, maybe look like the windrider pet. There's a reason tauren where laughed at before cat forms where changed D:

"WoW wyverns look as bad as old tauren cat form to me."Tauren cat model was pretty much same model without wings..or wyrven was cat model with wings. Same thing in any case..Also to nitpick. These are not spectral. Spectral is when they are blue like made out of glass. Spectral wolf and Spectral tigers are see-thro-blue with shiny stuff. These are essentially using GHOST effect not spectral one.I dont really take these seriously but what I hate about these is that they are first of all armorless. Armorless wyrven looks horrible. Secondly they are pretty much same models with slapped premade old "ghost effect" on whatever 3D program they use. But then again, "just another mount". I dont see many people using these however. They are just +1 to collections like gilnean mounts =/ just data on the list..

Tref, that is exactly why I bought the sparkle poney too. I didn't have 5k gold to shell out for all my alts to ride around on a non awful looking mount.

I play alliance and I think the wyvern looks pretty cool. The spectral one looks pretty amazing and so does the gryphon. They probably reskinned the winged guardian as it has wyvern and gryphon characteristics. Hoping 4.3 comes out before Blizzcon but realistically, probably looking at mid Nov. or early Dec.

@Ice"Well, that's like your opinion, man." I didn't know there was a magistrate on "spectral". To me spectral means, "Ghostlike" or see thru. Those appear to be both. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/spectralBut don't believe me.
