Oh Unicorn

Oh Unicorn

As we gallop through the cool night desert breeze

A gentle guitar tickles my senses

The destination fades from memory

    upon reading your headline, my immediate impression was that your were using unicorn in place of an unsavory word. 

    oh ****

    oh unicorn

    even though that isn't the case i am going to try it out and see if it catches on :P

    FFARR is beautiful..... with one exception

    Oh Unicorn.

    What the hell happened there?

    The legs... 

    The plastic mane... 

    The horrid plastic tail...

    I think the art team got drunk when they did the unicorn design, there is no other explanation.

     

    I think they got their inspiration from this

    The unicorn in FFXIV does feel very out of place..

    There was an esper in FF6 called 'Unicorn' so technically they aren't completely new to the FF mythos...

    As a unicorn owner myself, I have to say the first time I rode around listening to its music - well, there is no better word to describe it than 'magical'.

    It's not so much the lore, it's the look.

    Nearly everything in FFARR is fluid, dynamic, and organic. Your hair moves in the breeze, your cloak flutters as you walk, your eyes follow whomever your speaking with. Cloth textures look soft, fur looks fuzzy, and the leather looks rugged and worn.

    And then, there's the unicorn. It looks like it's made of shiney plastic, it's mane is stuck up in the air likes the 1980's stuck it's finger in a light socket, and it just kinda sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Ya I was more talking about how it looks ridiculous.

    Everytime I see a Roegadyn riding one it reminds me of the days when my little sister would have my GI Joes ride on the Barbie horses that got their legs cut off in a previous battle with my ninja turtles.

    I just wanted to update:

    I leveled up CNJ for the express purpose of hearing the unicorn music.

    I totally get it now.

    I've found out it gets louder when you move, and quieter when you stop, so I've been running around Shroud using that to add my own dramatic effect to the music (while I cringe at the plastic mane and tail trying to blow in the breeze, but being held back by too much AquaNet).

    That Unicorn is terrible.

    I hate seeing the unicorn mount.  Its looks stupid and out of place in this game.

    I refuse to have one to the point I'd rather run to where I'm going if I didn't have my Choco...

    Did the unicorn quest, never ever used it. Neither have i ever used the stupid clanky robo-choco (magitek armor), this game has some of the ugliest mounts ever, yes even the coeurl... looks like a squashed flipflop sandal and the ahriman.... holy yuck!

     Lol I totally agree.  The Chocobo is the best mount in this game bar none.

    The look of that thing HAS to be intentional given how vastly different it is from everything else.  I don't like it at all, but hey it is what it is.  

    All in favor of a better "unicorn" ala Ixion? :O
