Please revert Horse Mount animation changes

The change in movement of the rider on some mounts is the result of a bug introduced with 4.1.

It will be fixed in a future patch.


Oh, no. So we're stuck with this for... what weeks? Months?

Do we know which mounts are affected? I know the horses of all types are. What about the cats? Gods, now I'm going to grinding rep on toons that I never planned on just to get rid of the broken animations.

And yes, I'm going to be snarky and say a very sarcastic "thanks" to the person who was supposed to QA that section of the patch code, and clearly failed to do his job. Bravo, whoever you are.


Months.

Start enjoying your other mounts I guess.

/sigh

I'm just not seeing it. (But then, I love Talbuks...)

Glad it will be fixed, I guess?

I log in today and notice that some of my favorite mounts (Forsaken Warhorses, Argent Warhorse, etc) now run identical to the way Talbuk's run. This running animation isn't natural and is the sole reason I never ride the Talbuk mounts.

Will this also address the animations that were broken way back in 3.0? For a more elaborate post on what was broken...

Edit: Also, will the issues to Invincible be fixed? And fixed without causing more?

An issue is an issue. They all need fixed.

I'm always amazed at bugs that affect objects or actions that, at least on the surface, have nothing to do with implemented changes. Do you know what I mean? What did the patch change that resulted in bugged mount animation?

You can't fly in any PVP area. (Tol Barad, BG's, Arenas). For some of us that mainly PVP this is ugly as crap to stare at.

Boy, I sure am glad all of my alts start at level 60 now. I'd hate to have to level them for forty levels with this stupid animation while riding.

I miss noises that horses and undead mounts made specially when harrashing other places if you did it right it goes over over. :)

Aww, I like the new animation better. It's much more realistic than the totally smooth unnatural ride of before.

I also like the Talbuks but only the ones without armor. Head armor on Talbuks, Cats, Elekks, and especially the perforated wok on the Amani bear, all look ridiculous.

While you're at it, give all the horses the old Deathcharger animations. Those were seriously the best horse animations in the game - the ridiculous floppy-assed ones we have now just aren't cutting it.

At least give the Deathchargers their animations back. :( My Crimson Deathcharger hasn't been the same since 4.0.

Thanks for letting us know.

Don't shoot the messenger, guys. It's not like he can control when it's fixed.

On a similar matter, I got my hands on a Swift Spectral Tiger a few weeks back and was highly disappointed when I mounted up on my kilt wearing Shaman. The kilt basically goes right through the mount rather than sit on top of it. This obviously wouldnt be noticable on normal "solid" mounts, however it is clearly visible since this mount is translucent. I really hope this is a bug and not intended design for one of the rarest mounts in game.

... Why not a hotfix?


This, and with a new patch means even MORE bugs... I'm aware that bugs can and DO happen with anything, technology-wise, but I do think you should at least take a lot more time testing a patch before it's released. Everything just seems so rushed together, and on my server's trade chat, there's a lot more people complaining about this new patch than there are people that actually sell stuff there.
