That minimap upgrade is nice. I wonder how relevant it will be compared to how useful it would've been in Warlords though.
I use the addon sexymaps just because I like the option on what Icons are on the map and having the ability to increase the size of the map. I do not have the best sight and the little map in the corner of the screen was sometimes hard to see. With the option of increasing the size to were I am not leaning in to focuse my eyes it helps. So unless this feature is included as a option I think I will be sticking with Sexymaps. As far as Face/Off I did not like the fact that people in the make up world would not instantly recognize WOW characters. Over 10 years of nothing but beautifully created cinematic and model designs.
This seasons Face Off has sucked so for but this ep is gonna ROCK!
I hope this model is available for players! For us of those who prefer the wild and untamed look (no armor/saddle etc) this is awesome! IMO (in general) I think Blizz has done a better job with the animation of the cat mounts over all others. The body does seem a bit long and the head could use a little tweaking, but it could be the most awesome cat mount ever!
