Hunter Issues - Wolfhawks and Feathermanes

7.3 PTR Bug Report
A couple of recent hunter related issues I wanted to bring to the devs' attention since they seem to persist into this new PTR.

1) Wolfhawk mounts are currently broken - their models became glitched somehow and now their right wings are distorted, don't fold correctly, and have the shoulder armor twisted to the wrong side. Their teeth are also stretched out and distorted in the hovering idle animation.

2) Feathermane pets after taming seem to be bugged. Their idle animations are going off *constantly*, and in particular the tamed Lalathin hippogryph has roaring sounds accompanying this which makes it very difficult to play alongside!

Thanks for your time. :)
Number 1 is on purpose. I believe it was designed like that because of some conflict with the animations and model. Not sure, but I know the unevenness is on purpose.

Do you have a source for this? I have a really hard time believing that this extreme wing twisting is intentional.

I'll see if I can't grab a screenshot in a bit.

Edit: urf... forgot to get one, but Veph has it covered.
Yeah I don't remember them ever saying it was intentional. It looks BAD.
Sorry, but I highly doubt the wolfhawk distortions are intentional. The right wing is certainly broken. It clips terribly, bends in the wrong places, and is no longer animated correctly. I've provided some screenshots, though it's even easier to tell in-game while it's in motion.

Note how the wing feathers are sticking out away from the body on one side, rather than being tucked in like they used to be:

And in flight, notice how the feathers are bent down incorrectly, and the shoulder armor really illustrates how that entire arm must be twisted:

And one more, though this one is harder to see in a still image. The fangs break and stretch when idling and when the wolfhawk roars/opens its mouth. Notice how the shape stretches and distorts compared to the usual shape:

This is currently happening on live, it's not a PTR only thing.

7.2.5 somehow severely rotated the wolfhawk's right shoulder, causing massssssive distortion of the wing. It was fine in 7.2.

And the idle animation never stops for the pet version. It's rather annoying.
Pleaaaase fix the idle animation and noisy green hippogryph (Lalathin). ;__;
Yes the idle animation is still constant. Also the mount has other issues, the fangs when it does a mount special become distorted
Took me a long time trying to tame Lalathin solo today. I finally joined a group doing WQ only and got him/her - OMG I was thrilled. Imagine how bad I felt when my raid wanted to kick me for the incessant distracting and constant noise Lalathin makes. I turn the pet sound off and I can't hear it but other people can so it doesn't help. I have the corrupted hippogryph mount and a nice mog set - so disappointed. Hope Dev's can correct it soon or I'm stabling it. :(
