    I think they were trying to go for something like this but missed the mark.

    Ok, so maybe the OP was someone who knew that this was going to be released and tried to gin up interest by posting on the forums. Then, we got ... whatever that thing is.

    Or, it's another example of needing to be careful what you wish for.

    i hope ppl heard me now when i post against "water themed expansion", housing and another foruns "unicorns".

    main pvp: Khel the Undead(power reaper).

    I find it interesting that the tank-raptor and that mess of a "demon" bunny are considered cool and totally acceptable and this is what people object to.

    20 years ago that would have been me too. I wouldn't have dared express the slightest interest in anything "cute" or silly but the more creepy and disturbing you could make it the better. I'm not actually sure when I stopped caring and settled on just liking 'weird' things of all stripes, I don't think I really noticed until GW2 came out and I realised I absolutely would use a bow which shoots unicorns because it's so rediculous.

    You got your wish. Congrats. It looks terrible, but at least you are happy I take it. ;)

    I actually like both. Didn't end up getting the armoured raptor because I had so many other skins I already liked, but it did have a good Iron Legion theme going.
    This winged unicorn chimaera needs a facelift and a less airborne tail but aside from that I actually like it.

    "Cute" is fine. "Silly" is fine. "Ridiculous" is fine (I have 2x Dreamers and love my Rainbow Unicorn finisher). This is just hideous.

    So you are the one to blame... jk
    I just feel bad for whoever designed and modeled this. So many poor choices resulting in this uncanny valley frankenstein.
    There have been plenty of mount skins that havent been my personal taste but at least for the 2000 gem skins there has been a lot of care put into the animations, design, texture, etc.
    That something like this could be approved and released makes me concerned about future content quality control.

    Agreed. It's atrocious. :|

    People complained about both of those mounts as well, but not anywhere near this scale because...they werent nearly as terrible. This one is just bad. Not even bad, its just hideous. Not in a quirky way, not in an "omg it looks too dark and evil" way...its just plain fugly. I know some people will defend to the death ANYTHING anet does or puts out, and I understand maybe some people like it for some reason, and to each their own. But no...to most of us, seeing this brings the reaction of "oh my lord what the heck is that, what have they done, kill it with fire".

    Its atrocious, and NOT in any kind of quirky way.

    You obviously don’t appreciate the awesome sense of humor Anet has lol

    Yeah, our beloved skyscale really dodged a bullet there. Back to the drawing board, Anet!

  • It's getting some traction since I shared it to Facebook. Everybody agrees that it's hilarious.

    Maybe you need to keep this mount skin for the next tier?

    Are you peeps not paying attention to the OPs request from back in Nov???

    "Next I would like a Unicorn/Pegasus hybrid for a Skyscale Mount skin."

    So some dev(s) must have seen this thread and thought it would be fun to make something like it. The devs are allowed to be silly and goofy. And its not like anyone is forced to buy it... Geez...

    Nobody is happy it exists either, even the mount doesn't seem happy with its existence. When OP made the post I'm sure he didn't have something so horrendous in mind.

    The mount looks a bit like someone put wings, feathers, weird legs and a new horn on Charlie the Unicorn...first Candy Mountain and all the madness, now this. Can't blame him for looking so annoyed at the situation.

    This is what you get when the original staff leaves the game. Everything that's holy will become gemstore fodder

    Assuming the "demon bunny" is the Infernal Horror Springer, I agree with you. I don't see why there would be a problem with the Dreadnought Raptor though - it even has some surprisingly plausible lore behind that closely matches what real life humans did with horses.

    With this pegasus thing, I think you've misunderstood the objections though - I haven't seen anyone saying it looks too cute or too silly. I think the problem is that it isn't sufficiently horselike to match people's expectations of what a unicorn pegasus should look like.

    I like some of the Unique mount skins like the Humming Bird for Skimmer and the Deer for Jackal.

    Next I would like a Unicorn/Pegasus hybrid for a Skyscale Mount skin.
    not sure if some special effects could also be a thing. Maybe since there is already a fire effect skyscale. But a Running on a beam of light animation, when flying, for this would seal the deal for me.

    I like unique ones too. I can't stand any recolor skins of the pugfaced default no matter how shiny the rest of the skin is designed. That goes for griffon too. Pugface? Nope.

    I like my horsie face pegasus griffon, even with its Gorilla Feather arms and webbed front feet.

    The fact that many don't like it means my choice will stay unique so I'm more likely to sport it.

    I have only seen one other person with it while playing alongside me.

    As a side note, I can dive more accurately because of the pegasus slender head.

    So it wasn't stated and you want us to go on your assumption. Got it. :p

    Seems kinda silly for them to invest time into a "joke mount" when they can invest it into something that the vast majority does not think looks like an abomination, like a GOOD LOOKING pegasus, or good looking mount in general...which would make them much more money. But yes, to each their own.

    Alternatively, if they had wanted to make more money off this, could have released it on April 1st. I don't think people would have cared so much then.

    A bunch of us already figured out where the idea came from, it’s pretty obvious so get on board. You don’t need the devs to make a blog post clarifying it.

    It’s not like you’re limited to this one skin... you’ll get more, so don’t buy it if you have issues. Your problem solved.

    Your neighbours paint their houses bright pink. Fill the gardens with the ugliest pride-parade assessments you can find, and will be hosting my little pony festivals every weekend.
    But it's not a problem? Rights? Since you don't live in those houses, right?

    Briefly put, just like SAB, not only can 'not partake', it's noisy aesthetics will still ruin your experience.
    And if that was only it, but no. It's also a problem.
    The core staff made horses and unicorns a thing of myth and legend. They only existed in paintings to enhance the glory of the humans presented in.
    But now you can buy one and parade it in reality.
