    Looks like they're so unpopular Anet is giving them away 2-for-1!

    (This is actually a bug with the black lion chests, getting one should remove it from the drop table, and yes I've contacted support. The annoying part is I only wanted the whale glider.)

    It would go pretty cool with my Guardian, but I'm not sure about this model.
    How come some skins change the mount aspect entirely, such as the humming bird for skimmer, but this one looks like a wrapped first layer on top of alpha texture?

    Pegasus?
    What pegasus?
    What am I missing?

    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.

    https://i.imgur.com/c8leOGr.png

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

    Someone fixed it https://pasteboard.co/IS7kdvl.jpg

  • That would be so much better. The muzzle needs to be shorter and squatter, head higher and the legs longer like this. ( Doesn't /need/ all hooves to imo. Hippogriff is ok.)

    well if they are making a nice Canthan dragon mount skin for Skyscale, then im fine them doing this for griffin

    So. I heard that there was a new mount skin. I was excited. So I went to take a look, whereupon I had a few thoughts from run through my head. Here are a few:

    "It looks like a unicorn with microcephaly mated with a hippogriff."
    "It looks like someone looked at The Dreamer and said 'You know what would be awesome? This. But worse.'"
    "I feel so terrible for the devs, because somewhere out there a small team is feeling very kitten upon for something they worked very hard on. I think what happened is they worked so hard on the individual bits, that they forgot to step back and look upon the whole before burning it."
    "I can do better than that. Hey, you, pick up a nearby object. Cool, see? I just did better."

    I may be a mean person, but at least I didn't bring this abomination into existence, that's just pure animal cruelty.

    Wow, someone read my mind! Ugh! LOL

    Its a cross between a horse, griffon, cow, unicorn, peacock -- oh my... LOL

  • Najten.2418Najten.2418 Member ✭✭✭

    My question is; Why are we mixing a HIPPOGRYPH with a UNICORN and calling it a PEGASUS? >.<
    Also, the face.. it needs fixing. Serious fixing. Call a plastic surgeon for that poor excuse of a "horse". Also, remove the cloth around the neck and/or make it not use the same dye channel as the glow effects. :anguished:

    I'm not that bothered by horses, but my little girl took one look at it and went 'eww'. If she disapproves, I know it's an ugly nag. Even if I won this from a BLC, I'd not use it.

    I have a feeling that if they had done this gw2-mini-lunar-horse.jpg

    it would have been easier to "hide" the griffon model they can't circumvent. Either you then had a sort or horse disguise by a griffon instead of skritt or actually use the skritt in the design. Add the wings and tail of a griffon in a way that it fits. They could even still have gone with the unicorn horn if they want it that much. But ye the disguise would have hid the whole body shape of the griffon as its simply never going to match a horses. Even the legs in such "costume" wouldn't be such a problem I think.

  • Hadi.6025Hadi.6025 Member ✭✭✭

    Umm ? Hello design team? What are you doing? I was [] <--- THIS close to spending money on this game and buying the Pegasus mountskin because that was something i was waiting for and then you messed it up by putting bird feet on the front of a horse. Why would you do that? Who approved of that ? Like come on.... Just wanted a genuine horse mount and you put duck feet on the thing... come on now....

    Those are sacred feat, may you be swarmed by duckies =) .

  • it kinda feels like one of their artist teams begged to be allowed to make a aligrifficorn, and got permission, BUT....... was only allowed to spend ~5 man-hrs (total) on it ....

    and this was the best they could do with the limited time available.

    Something has been bugging me about this "Pegasus" model and where have I seen one on my computer before, more importantly I was wondering if there was some way that Anet could have found some inspiration when creating their model. This morning I remembered.

    Windows 10 Machine - Press Start > 3D viewer > Click on the 3D library button and voila, there in all its glory top left is something that is listed as a 'Unicorn'. It is without doubt a billion times better.

    Are you able to share the image? On my Windows 10 machine I just get an error page inserted into the library telling me it shut down on the 10th. Now I'm curious what it looked like but have no way to find out.

    I was thinking this could have been their April 1st prank, I think that would have actually caused some laughs (and upset people at first). I hope the sales of this mount will reflect the sentiment of this thread, and that they will get their stuff together again.

  • It was a great looking mount skin, UNTIL you see the feet and other features of the griffin. No wonder most of the conversations in map/say/guild/squad chats was overwhelmingly negative. Get rid of the Griffin aspect and this is a mount skin well worth buying or obtaining

    See folks, thats what happens when you want to create something that everyone knows how it looks like and what its supposted to look like, but instead you persistently want to create something different, to show how distinctive you are.
    Just dont, pegasus is a horse with wings, stay to the pattern, just like BDO, WoW and others. It works, people like it, and noone cries because "ugh, again horse with wings, maybe use your brain and create something new, dont copy already existing things".

    He looks more stoned than sad to me. It's that droopy eyelid that does it.

  • 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.

    This pegasus could! He's got long, touchy feely finger toes! rofl

  • Weren't people also asking for a "horse" mount that looks like the one that's just Skritt in a horse costume? What's under that bulky horse blanket on the neck area? ;)
    But I don't want to pick on this pterippi, it looks like it can actually hear everyone calling it pterrible, the poor thing. It's like the person who to worked on this deliberately crafted that Eeyore look in its eyes just to say "Yeah, I know what you're thinking". :'(

    I dont think they understand any part.

    For me, the "issues" with the skin is actually very simple - it's a matter of proportions. It sits too low with too chubby front legs, which just makes it look weird and reminds me of a potbelly pig. Their concept art looks much more proportional with slimmer front legs and sitting slightly higher.

    That people want it to be a horse is just silly.

    Thanks. :)

    That actually looks weirder to me. It might just be the angle but the legs look too short for the body (especially the back legs) and the wings just look tacked on, which I know is how a pegasus normally looks but I prefer the ones where the wings meld into the body better and/or they include some suggestion of muscles to move them. Of course the GW2 one gets around that by having most of the body hidden so you can't clearly see how the wings connect.

    just being super picky here

    the length of the ear really depends on the breed of horse

    I think BDO's pegasus is pretty spot on, the length of the ear is pretty much identical in length of the top of the head to the top of the eye

    perhaps the right ear is stretched a bit due to artificial wide angle lens distortion

    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.

    It's not supposed to be a normal Pegasus, it's supposed to be the Tyrian version of a Pegasus, which ArenaNet can make look any way they want, and honestly, it's called a Sacred Pegasus Griffon, which means it's a combination of a Pegasus with a Griffon(and a little Unicorn thrown in for good measure), so it looks the way it does because that's the name of it. Had it been just a Pegasus then I would have described the skin as a Sacred Pegasus Skin for Griffon, not thrown in Griffon before the word Skin.

    just looked at the concept art, does it? i think the in-game matches up with the concept art, even the dopiness of the eyes *facepalm*

    at first i thought it was just a bad job by an intern, which i'd be ok with, and i had hoped the rest of the community can also be chillout with, since a more experienced dev can go back and patch things up a bit... but even the concept art is ...... *facepalm* *facepalm* *facepalm*
