Owl Moon Priestess Reforged

Submitted by Retera
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
While brainstorming a possible entry to the current Reforged Don't Refund Techtree Contest that is going on right now, I thought it would be fun to create a model for one of my possible ideas of making a Reforged version of the Night Elf Moon Priestess riding on an owl.

The legend goes that in 2001 when Blizzard was originally developing the Night Elves, they had planned for the Priestess of the Moon hero (then called Moon Priestess) to be riding on an owl. There were even leaked photos of the owl rider model, but Blizzard never released it outside their 2001-2002 offices.

So, this is a custom Reforged model made with inspiration from that.
Here's a video of me flying a hero around with this model (sorry the music is quiet):



Edit: I removed a part of the harness that was clipping the rider's body.

A wonderful recreation of a wc3beta model into reforged. Works in-game and performs well. Good job.

    Well done!

    I made a Tyrande version with green hair instead of blue. To import the model properly, just remove war3mapImported\ from the dds file but not the mdx file when you import the files.

    Retera.
    How amazing this's held, in addition to rescuing a part of the story, it's a good alternative model for anyone who wants to add a flying Hero.
