    Sadly our Wyvern is not yet ready to appear in public. While the Wyvern is based on our dragon it has a different head and some different textures and the polish/rigging/animation on those are taking longer than we anticipated. This means they won't be making R57 unfortunately unless we can get them in a patch. However they will definitely be in for R58 as the data is all setup and just waiting on the art.

    Here's a shot from a couple of weeks ago before we started the polish pass:

    Wow, that's a lil bigger than I was expecting them to be. Will they be scaled down a bit or will they stay that size?

    That seems HUGE! Any idea how it will look when running through sewers or zones like the rise with tight corridors @DarkStarr ?

    I think a hydra has even more heads and 4 legs. Wyvern has 2 legs :).

    Nice! OK, back to training Pets again, especially after they have been buffed a bit for R57 :)

    I still think dragons as pets is a really bad idea.

    @DarkStarr Since we won't be getting the Wyvern can you at least tell us where to find the Obsidian Destroyer bear? About 10 of us searched just about every zone yesterday looking for the bear and couldn't find one.

    Yup!!

    Thanks for the taming love @DarkStarr any hints to taming requirement and summoning requirement? Is this same level as the destroyer or higher, since we have another delay spare us more pain n suffering by answering these ;).

    Hopefuly its hard to tame and hard to controll, would be sweet if your summoning was near the min req it might actually turn on you.

    @DarkStarr I certainly hope they will be scaled down significantly.
    In UO, it was truly awful fighting in a group with 3 Tamers with White Wyrms or Dragons, because you couldn't see anything, except big-caboosed Pets!

    I know the Tamers feel peeved when they tame animals & they scale down, but compared to the avatars in your picture, this thing is HUMONGOUS!
    Maybe scale back the Original Size Wyvern, rather than the Tamed one?

    It is pretty big, on one hand its gonna look cool as hell but in a small confined area party's are gonna be smothered.

    Im 50/50 on the size, people gonna love this as a side note!

    Do you actually need that many summons if you are in a group though?

    Maybe they can only be called in outdoor scenes... That would be different!

    After looking at the Wyvern....

    You take your sweet time getting it implemented, that thing looks absolutely amazing! We can definitely wait a month for it to arrive!
