Please fix the pegasus, he looks sad.

No problem with the feet, it's the face that bothers me. Why does it have a beak?

Shorten the snout and round out that beak, and then I think people would buy it. But right now it looks kitten. When he looks at me, I feel like I'm going to have nightmares at night.

    With the new patch, a 2000 gemstore griffon skin came out that is supposed to look like a pegasus. It has horse back legs and a horse 'face' but it came out looking really weird.

    Can you imagine a pegasus sticking to the side of a cliff? lol. Griffon is the most logical choice for the physics. I would have switched to main griffon if they had gotten the skin right.

    Those back hooves are split and look like cow hooves, not horse. Horses have a solid, non split hoof.

    Be careful what you ask for

    I... don't understand what's so bad about this? The face looks a bit goofy, but that is because we have never seen a horse in GW2 at all so having a horse's head on a feathery creature looks super out of place. I like it though.

    I rather choose death.

    Seeing the screenshot now, I feel like it'd fit better as a hippogriff. They wouldn't have to change the facial structure then but still get the mythological creature feel right. The legs of that pegasus look more accurate for a hippogriff too.

    Also, pegasus don't have horns? Or cow feet? Or whatever those front feet are suppose to be? They are literally just horses with wings, that's it.

    Based on the only horses we've ever seen in Tyria the problem with this one is it doesn't have enough horns. Seriously, this is the Necrid hoseman from GW1 which is the only time (visible) horses have appeared in the series: https://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/File:Zombie_Horseman.jpg

    I agree the front legs are a bit weird, but then so is the idea of a horse with wings. Overall I think it looks fine and I'm kind of tempted to get it, or at least try my luck with some free black lion keys.

    Eh, it's not up my ally but I guess I could see why someone might like it. It's good enough "quality" but the design is kinda far out there and I'm dreading seeing these things flying all over Tyria. Nothing like being locked in battle with an epic world boss just to have a bunch of glowing pink and white pegauses mutants come crashing in.

    Depression and anxiety are the worst...

    Wait, is that sarcasm? I think it is. It looks and reads like sarcasm. Is it sarcasm?

    Omg that's great, I've never seen this before. The FMA references to the weapons you can make from it are awesome.

    Well if Dr. Frankenstein had to make a Pegasus from left over parts this is probably the result.

    Has ANYONE at Anet ever seen the Tristar Pictures Logo?!?! That is a Pegasus.

    This is very very poor.

    I was thinking the same thing -- that's some Frankenstein kitten right there! :lol:

    Unlike the Infernal Horror which is Hideous and a Work of ART :sunglasses: which I gladly forked over the 2K gems for, this Franken-beast is, well... just a beast.

    And, I concur, it's going to a far extreme to describe it as any kind of "Pegasus."

    I can see why we do not have horses in the game, they can't model them. That sure is an ugly horse face.

    I also think they missed a chance here by doubling it up as a Unicorn too. They could have made a Majestic (holy) Pegasus mount(without the horn) and a cutesy, rainbowy Unicorn mount, instead of this ugly mash of both. Most Pegasus art I see on Google is without the horn, and pretty much each of them looks hella better then this mount. Another rush job from a company that seems to be scrambling for resources. Pity.

    Anet is in serious trouble, this is very subpar comparing to past 2k gem skins.

    It's a bit short and squat-looking. I would guess that it's a bone-rigging limitation, but they were able to do such a great job with the stag skin on the jackal...

    If they can't lengthen the legs and neck, maybe the proportions would be a bit better without the draping armor and less thiccness on the neck and forelegs.

    That's the main reason why Tyria has no horses, they are butt ugly.

    In the beginning...there was Tarnished Coast...

    This is the kind of mount skin I've wanted for a while. But there's just something off about the whole thing... Can't win'em all.

    Yeah, it is a bit weird. I decided to grab one anyway, and dying it black mitigated some of the uncanny valley problems.

    I'd love to have that hairstyle on charr though.

  • It's not a Pegasus, it's a Alicorn and the poor thing is bored :3:p

  • Funky.4861Funky.4861 Member ✭✭✭

    It looks too rushed to me. An alicorn has the body of a unicorn with the wings of a pegasus, so this should have 4 solid hooves, a horses' body and neck (not that squat thing it has going on) and normal griffon wings as per the rig.

    Something like this:
