Ask and ye shall receive. 🙂

Here’s updated model/Projectile for Kudzu and and footfalls for Kudzu, Dreamer, Frostfang and Bolt. (Bolt was not a noticeable change)

Long time fan – love your site!

Dude your character looks almost exactly like my Thief which I posted on Guru a couple weeks ago O_o. Except the whole having a bunch of legendaries thing.

Predator does not have an improved aura or a y change at all. I was a little worried when I saw it wasn’t mentioned at all in the changes/no changes section a few days ago and I guess it was meant for the latter.

A real shame as I was hoping they’d add in the old engi tool belt effects again as well as add kit attack effects.

Doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t want it. 😛 I think Rodgort as a weapon is perfect, but I would love some bigger footsteps. My character leaves behind such small ones…

I feel like a lot of these didn’t need updates (like the moot or kudzu for example – kudzu’s footsteps were already very large) but other legendaries like Incinerator and Rodgort did.

Kudzus footfall wasnt changed… the model was corrected and arrows a bit more impressive. and Incinerator got larger footfall

As an Engineer for my main, I hate that The Predator was left out. I think that is such an ugly Legendary. I should know!

These aren’t that helpful because you haven’t told us when these pictures were taken: Kraitkin has a day cycle and a night cycle.

I might take some screenshots when I get home, but although they improved upon the actual textures of Kraitkin, they reduced the nighttime glow by a lot — the point where you almost couldn’t differentiate between the day/night Kraitkin anymore. I presume they toned down the glow to show off the new textures, but it’s really disappointing/

They are helpful! It’s clearly day cycle because you can see that the heads are moving. Thank you for posting these, I’ve been having a hard time finding pictures and these are very good.

I’m just disappointed that they didn’t fix Frostfang not having the ice on your arm effect when wielded in your off hand (nor does it leave its swoosh trails when swinging)

Here’s the new Kraitkin, day and night. The eels are now a darker color with a glowing green outline. Also, somewhat disappointingly, the green glow on the night cycle has been toned down significantly. (Compare to how it used to glow:

not sure if this is a concrete change. But there seem to be small blue floating sparkles on nighttime-howler. I don’t remember seeing these pre-patch
