Hyjal Guardian (Reforged)

Submitted by Malmgrev
This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.
I haven't released a skin in quite a while so I think it's about time. This is an elite Druid of the Claw guarding mount hyjal that will be featured in Chapter 1: Descent of the Nightmare Flight for my upcoming custom campaign. The skin is inspired by the Koda Steelclaw Bear Form from World of Warcraft: Legion.

I included 2 MDX models and if you want this as a sperate model, just remove war3mapImported\ from the DDS files but keep it for the MDX models. Should look like this:

war3mapImported\HyjalGuardian.mdx
war3mapImported\HyjalGuardian_portrait.mdx
nightelf_druidoftheclaw_hair_diffuse.dds
nightelf_druidoftheclaw_main_diffuse.dds
nightelf_druidoftheclawbear_hair_diffuse.dds
nightelf_druidoftheclawbear_main_diffuse.dds

The icons should look like this, and you just use the same path in custom when you select the icon.
ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\btnHyjalGuardian.dds
ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\disbtnHyjalGuardian.dds

MDX models:
Hyjal Guardian | HIVE


Edit: I updated the bear main so it looks more like the wow version, but trying to make it even less saturated or light blue didn't look good so sticking with this version. The gif+screenshots are also updated.

    Just a small suggestion. As you've seen the skin doesn't quite correlate to what's displayed ingame, the colours are much more vivid due to Blizzard's recent patch.
    I would suggest to apply a soft discoloration layer to the bear texture (like color or hue white/black something like 20-ish %).
    That is if you want him to look like the WW reference of course =P

    P.S.
    Here's your Wolf Form icon in the druid for pac:

    Yeah it didn't look much like the wow reference even if it was only inspiration, but decided to update it anyway as it looked better. I liked the vivid colors but it just stood out too much so better to tone it down a bit.

    The wolf icon is simply amazing, even better than I imagined. Thank you!!
