edit: horde is saying they have this issue as well
hmmm I may need to look at my mount. I didn't notice that, but I haven't used it in a while either. If so I would like my money back also.
i don't think the weird silver texture is on horde runesaber, even though it's the exact same mount, i might be wrong.
I, too noticed the difference. Its armor is super shiny now.

I kind of like it, though a version that isn't so shiny would be cool, too.
Wait, I'm confused. Is this the runesaber store mount we're talking about? Is there a difference with it based on faction?

yes the store mount. i don't know if theres a difference, but i seem to recall horde didn't have this problem, maybe my game was glitched? i dunno.
Mines the same way. I hope they fix it soon.
It isn't just Alliance, mine looks like sheet now too. Also, didn't those big gems on the shoulder pieces glow, fade slowly in and out? They don't light up now at all unless you're flying. Or am I remembering that wrong?

Yes, the markings that glowed on the gems on their shoulders and the book are gone! Actually, the violet color is totally gone everywhere.
It's not an Alliance/Horde thing. It's a graphical bug. Check that your graphics drivers are updated.

Well tbh this isn't the first time that this has happened with this mount, so I do know what I'm talking about. But I just logged in and the mount is affected on my account as well, so obviously all the graphical tinkering Blizzard has been doing is screwing with things.
Mine looks like the picture. You need to max your setting to see all the cool shiny stuff?
It's a glitch that seems to come and go, I'm also worried about the wing clipping texture on the left side though I don't know if anyone else is having that problem.
The issue exist on dragonkin armor as well. The spell casters in TBC Timewalking Black Morass had the issue. Someone else in another thread mentioned something about changing your light and/or shadow settings to low may get rid of it. Definitely seems to be a bug. And since this one has real money ramifications(I was going to buy the mount but not with it looking like that!) my guess is they are aware of it and are working on a fix.

Edit - added clarity to which timewalking instance mobs were affected
