    This is a very interesting and unique model. Two alternate morphs, a wide variety of anims, etc. But I think it's a bit too dead in its color scheme and texture definition in comparison to other wc3 models (even if you used in-game textures). Maybe having used more intensely folded fabric/leather and maybe a rope, a pouch, something more would break the dead spirit of the model. Good textures to achieve that are the Witch Doctor, or Medivh, among others. (Note that I don't mean adding colors necessarily, it's about definition - lines, contours, details. The gray-brown scheme isn't an issue. If the texture choice and wrap is improved, I'll instantly raise the model rating to the well-deserved 5/5)
    The animation work is fantastic, though. Great job at doing 37 animations, you might have broken the record. :p ..and it isn't just about quantity, but about quality as well. The functional aspects are all met.

    Before anyone asks, yes, he is shooting fire from his feet.

    Wow, a really good model, and TC as well. The name Direfury and quality are often used together for a reason and you always fail to disappoint. It also seems really versatile as I could also imagine it as a Goblin mage, or Dwarven mage or a Human mage if it was scaled in a certain way.

    wow. everything in this model is great, the usage of textures like the boots icon is really clever and considering how small icon textures are, you pulled it off really well. lots of animations and variety, model is really versatile, great mesh, i like those little details like the spell scrolls on his belt. i for one think the fire on his feet is really neat (that rhymed, i should be a rapper) incorporating one of the elements that he utilizes which is fire.

    all in all, great model. looks like my entropic mage is in for a fine bloody duel against your arcanist :D

    Echoing all of the above. Fantastically-detailed model, and quite a creative twist, using the Gold/Lumber animations like that to incorporate two morphs into one model. Sick.

    Personally, while I'm always a fan of your SFX & particularly the runic-discs texture, I have to admit you keep using it for model after model; no issue generally, but it kinda becomes staid if it shows up over & over again in a custom mod, IMO.

    Also, as a thought, Gnomes tend (to me) to be typically twitchy & jumpy, rather than calculating and deliberate.

    Really? That sounds more like a Goblin, to me. Spastic little creatures.

    Also, I wasn't exactly trying to give the Arcanist that kind of 'cold, calculating' feel, but more of a... 'flowing with raw power' kind of feel. Like with his Walk Fast, as an example; it seems like he's coming after you, not towards you.

    I agree, but I guess I see Goblins and Gnomes as two sides of the same coin. Both are twitchy mad scientists, IMO. Meh.

    Honestly, those kinda go hand-in-hand for me. Though to be fair, I wouldn't know how to extricate one from the other either (i.e. how to make it feel "super-powerful" and "twitchy mad scientist"). I wonder if WoW has anything like that?...

    I do like that Walk Fast; as rare as it is to be used, I love the idea of "rocket-shoes" across the ground. : )

    I wouldn't call this a gnome if I were you. It looks (almost) like Vivi from Final Fantasy IX.
    5/5 [if only I could vote a director's cut ^^]
