Minions design shouldve been Undead and Calcium

I'm too biased about the details. Too much demonic flesh monster types instead zombified creatures. Maybe as switchable design between Flesh and Undead?

    I wish you could customize your minions with different aesthetics, just like rangers can customize their pets :I.

    they shoulda been humanoid. instead we have these weirdo thingies that don't look like anything recognizable.

    They're pretty much skinless versions of creatures found in Tyria; Blood Fiend is a wind rider, Bone minions/Jagged Horros/Shambling Horrors are various sizes of skritt I believe, Bone Fiend is a devourer, and Flesh Golem...ye not sure on Flesh Golem. But then again, necromantic golems are typically constructed from different corpses.

    I always thought of the golem as based on destroyer trolls/axe weilding destroyers (same thing referred to as both, but mostly destroyer troll). Though it has a horn, so maybe it gets a unicorn ummmm bone? because its special and elite :p

    XD not defending them at all, just saying what they are. I am all in for minion redesign. Heck I'll take GW1 minions over GW2 minions in terms of looks even though they don't look like any creature we see.

    Don't judge by looks.

    That said they've been like that since GW1, if you play it from start you can think some lore reasons why they're like that.

    They are specifically made undead creations, not typically of a single creature.

    The only two that could perhap be a singular creature is the flesh wurm (undead wurm), and the bone fiend, which could (in theory) be a devourer. It's much more likely a creation shaped like a devourer though, as devourers are insects and don't have bones :P.
