This is not the right place to enter the contest. Follow the link above.Does anyone think that flying mounts are getting a little bit too large?

Well, I won't ride anything bigger than a gryphon, and I prefer mounts that don't move drastically up and down and don't blow smoke right at eye level (it irritates my eyes for some reason).If only they would make a gyrocopter engineer mount without the exhaust, that would be perfect.

Yes and no. The size of, say, a proto-drake mount is annoying at times, as I feel the need to zoom out when I mount up, and back in when I dismount (they're just so big and flappy). That being said, many races -- especially tauren, male dranaei, and even trolls -- just look weird on smaller mounts. A tauren on a hippogryph looks comically too large for his mount, since the 'gryph does scale up enough to look much bigger than his rider. So yes, some mounts are annoyingly big, but at the same time, smaller mounts do not scale up enough for larger character models.
I want my flying mammoth, darnit.

One of my favorite mounts of all time is the ICC Frostwyrm, and that's one of the biggest.I think the trouble with the new Gift Shop dragon is simply the shiny. It burns the eyes!

But larger toons look silly on anything smaller than a dragon. My draenei all look ridiculous on gryphons.

@PazazuCool name. I actually think proto's are the smaller drakes. I would say the drakes of the west wind (and model type) is the largest right now. The new heart of the aspects mount seems large as well.
