But you could make the Emerald Knight ride something else, couldn't you? The models aren't made yet, are they?


Indeed. It'll need to be discussed with the game's designer though. Don't want to ruin his carefully thought-out line-up ideas

So what would you see the Emerald Knight ride, then?
It cannot be a flying creature, because it would change the role of the unit too much.

AFAIK Emerald Knight is not a rider. But that would be a cool idea (although not with that lynx though. I hate his creepy human face )

I don't care about the lynx but that rider looks awesome. Please keep that style!

EDIT:

UNICORN! Or at the very worst, deer

Than maybe if models aren't final yet make Emerald Knight mount Unicorns?

Lose ye not Faith! Vote Unicorns!

But seriously, only if we don't get Unicorns. And even then it's not what I'd prefer. Only the purest of Heroes should be allowed onto a Unicorn's back. And there are not hundreds of purest of Heroes.
No there are plenty of other beast that Elves can ride that aren't Unicorns.

Damn, there goes my idea of Giant Owls.
Uh, Stags; Moose; Owlbears;This Thing; Giant Badgers/Martens; Demigryphs;
That's about what I can come up with without much research.

Have to say though, I think anything carnivorish is unsuitable for sylvan mount. It needs to be a herbivore.

Is that final?


As far as I can tell, pretty much, yes.
I think at some point we ruled out any sort of feline rider in Sylvan because it would be too much like WarCraft.


Oh it is a pity no feline...
A white tiger Rider would have been awesome man!

Because a Python is totally not a carnivore.

But I agree that mounting him on the Doe might not be a bad idea of the Balanced line-up wins. If the Strength line-up wins, he should probably remain footed to not conflict with Unicorns.

I must say I'd prefer them riding Pegasuses or Stags. :/

eww at that Lynx Rider model for Emerald Knights.



Is there any insiders here? If that's the model of Emerald Knights, I'll campaign hard for Sylvan's Fury to win.

No, it is not... are you reading the thread before asking questions?

And Marzhin is someone working in Ubi I think.

Meh, I lost all interest in this unit after I learned that it will not ride a lynx, and is not even mounted at all. [sarcasm]Elf in armour - wow, that's interesting[/sarcasm]

How would that be a problem ? I believe we are still in early phase and such changes still can be made ?
Thank you so much sharing infos on this forum btw

I think that best mount is indeed the white lynx (or some sort of feline). Maybe its head can be redesigned a bit. I definitely have no issue with the fact the WoW or even some other games have had the same concept. It's quite fitting.

Alternatively, but not as good of an option, would be a stag. Maybe even a white wolf? The unicorn is too pure of a creature and can be mounted only be few chosen (i.e the heroes of the faction).
