"Bear mount"

I dont wanna sound mean but I think you should take another look at the bear mount. The bear looks weird. I work at a zoo and I know that is not a bear, I have even asked my coworkers and they noticed it too that is not a bear. It looks like its a cross between a wolf and a gorilla with bear skin covering the body. Also the neck is like a giraffe and the head is bigger than the body which makes it so unnatural. Your npc normal bears looks more like a bear.

    the bear mounts are my favorite, ive posted that like 5 times today haha at this point the whole forum must of heard
    but I was wondering what was up with the wild hunt and now the flame atro mount. looks like they have tusks, which is cool and all but your kinda right, not anatomically correct. but as @Nelson_Rebel said this is a world where theres talking cats and lizards, demon like creatures, multiple gods walking among men and elves. the bear butt is the least of my concerns haha

    I noticed something now when i was looking at the Flame Atronach bear mount. its right side looks better then its left side. The head looks smaller and the neck is not so long and its back leg is more filled so its give the big butt. But when i turn it to its left side it looks just weird, I wonder if they align the right side to left side. Like mirrior its right side to the left side then the bear would look better. Im not sure, but i think the textures are in two part and the game puts it together. You can check too right side and the left and compare.

    Unfortunately, it's unavoidable to not encounter apologists in every area of entertainment presently, (i.e. Fanboys) that don't understand the concept of critiques, and the healthy, yea necessary role they play in the artistic process. -Of course the critiques themselves should be valid and unbiased but none the less they are critiques. Critiques push us to make improvements.

    Too many times these fanboys, in their unsophisticated and sycophantic naivety do mutate into full blown trolls
    ..(oxymoronically, a "troll" with a very thin skin. :D A thin skin for what they perceive as "jabs" at their FAVORITE EVER toy.

    Never the less, yes -I agree. The Bear mounts could use a bit of a tweak. Make them a bit more ferocious I suppose.

    -With that I'll also add, we have come a LONG way since the days of Pong and other 8-bit legacies. So I'm willing to cut them a little slack. ESO is one of my most endeared video games.

    i have two major issues with the bear mount:

    1. Everyone of my characters who previews it has their hands lower/higher than the reins, making it look like telekinesis.
    2. The bridle is the worst design in the game, it has no way to grip the bear's head (irl it would just slide off), making it look like magnetism.

    Devs, please fix the hand to rein scaling and make a proper bridle.

    Touchy. :)

    I think they're okay, I'm more fussed about the horses' hind legs to be honest.

    I noticed the weirdly long necks, too. The cats' necks are too long, too.

    I like the bears' faces, though.
    The riding animations are weird. :'(
