Professional Mount Opinionator: Izax

Hey,

So the mount and title for killing Izax before Patch 5.9 was finally released, you can see it here. First off, it's not that bad and clearly inspired by Izax with some cool details like the blue shield and blue particle effects which are similar to the Omnicannon. But after that, it just feels like someone either rescaled the back piece incorrectly or simply though "yea huge backpacks are cool", and judging from the reaction from the raiding community, that seems to an opinion shared by few.

The mount has quite a few similarities with Wings of the Architect, the most popular mount amongst the endgame raiding community and a mount that costs a lot of credits if you wish to buy it from a raiding team (which thousands of players have done, further illustrating a jackpot by the creator). However, one of the key points of the wings is the back piece which connects the "wings" with the player's body, (see picture here). The Wings of the Architect simply "blends" in with the player's body in a very effective way that makes the wings augment the outfit/character instead of dominating the appearance, which is the case of the Wings of the Dragon.

With less than two weeks to 5.9, I doubt Bioware will have time to reconfigure the mount a lot, but I hope that at least minor adjustments are made to the mount to ensure that some of these key issues are fixed.

That mount is disgusting, please fix it, make it smaller, put it lower and add a tail or something.

The only similiarity to Wings of the Architect is the name, Wings of the Cockroach.

this and make the tail or something swoop over the head of the character wearing the mount kind of like wings of a but the tail can just be a remodeled izax tail. right now that mount looks goofy silly and ridiculous.

if you play a merc or trooper i guess this mount as it is is nice but for other toons it is silly.
