Out of the rain at last! Though it certainly was a good addition to the great murloc battle, it’s been more of an obstacle for pretty much everything else. Moving out of Darkshore into Ashenvale adds further to the effect since unlike Darkshore, Ashenvale is quite vibrant.
This page touches something that I found happened almost automatically back in the old Misadventures incarnation of Beyond the Tree – while I’d originally intended Tiny to be the one pulling the strings with her vocal mannerisms, it really ended up being Hani who decided where they went most of the time since she was the one most knowledgeble about the world, the one with the most good intentions and finally the one who actually did the walking. While this is generally the accepted state, the duo does pull some siblingesque bickering from time to time for sheer amusement.
Those with a sharp eye might notice that Hani looks a little different from earlier – her skeleton has been adjusted to make the shoulder joints hopefully less eager to completely deform and the polygon count in her fingers have all but trippled to prevent some deformation there aswell. Due to the actual model being changed, I also had to redo all the morph targets responsible for her facial expressions, so there might be some slight differences. Tiny will get the same upgrade too soon enough.
