Visual glitch[broken mount models]
Hey guys i would like to start off by saying this is my first post on Ownedcore
Now with that out of the way lest move on to the fun
While out farming rares i occasionally come across cool little vanity items such as Mr. Smite's Brass Compass but a while back i came across an Aqua Jewel and was playing with some of my mounts and found that some of my mounts models mess up while in the aqua jewel form. I began testing it out with some of my other mounts and came across the same effect and thought i would share.
[If you just want me to get to the point read below]
Items needed:Aqua Jewel, Mounts to play around with the effect with.
this is how the effect normally alters models
this is how the aqua jewel affects the Celestial Steed(first mount i tried)
as you can see the legs and wings are missing from the model
another example of messed up models(my drake of the west wind)
The cooldown on the Aqua jewel is only an hour though the effect only lasts 10 minutes so it give you enough time to confuse people in your main city
Hope you enjoyed the post, feel free to reply with other mounts it works with (i have only tried Celestial steed, Drake of the west wind, and black drake with succession
Just to share for those who dont know, the aqua jewel drops off of Sahn Tidehunter whos location of which can be found in Shrine of seven stars, with a more specific location on wowhead or other sites

Curious to see what it looks like though -- have you confirmed other people see the graphics glitch?
yes i have had friends come look at it and have even said it looks like that, i took those pictures on high graphics settings and have seen it on low, it all looks like that.

I wonder what spectral tiger would look like.
I suppose you could class it as a glitch but it's nothing you would not expect on mounts that have lighting effects or transparent based parts on them like the HH or DK horse legs, there are a few things like DK horse tail doesn't show while its active and parts certain parts of body that have been designed in a certain way to the others.
For the most part its just the paler or more transparent mounts that can appear almost invisible or harder to see parts of the model.
It in itself is a very nice item as i love making my fireblood firehawk into a spectral version but many know about it and its very often killed or camped on busy or even not busy realms.
P.S you can use it to get some very wierd colors, With my warrior if i use it i also use it with a size pot and the mr smite item then if you pop avatar it changes into a strange black/green color which for example changes the firehawks into strange colors the purple one looks like a huge black crown and the orange one is a strange pale green.
Added rep for trying to contribute regardless of if people deem it right to be in exploits.
