...is it so hard to make a cone in 3D modelers?  (spoilers: It's not)

Why does the horn have to look so ridiculous?    The way it's shown, it'd act like a hook, IE an Azerothian Unicorn would be able to use it as a weapon once, and then it'd be stuck with a corpse on it's head, blocks its vision and use of the horn, etc (if it wasn't too heavy to lift for that matter).

I'm sorry, I wasn't aware unicorn physiology was the vital subject upon which this world of magic, demons and fantasy was built upon.

Also, you do realize we have moose, elk, deer and so on with curved and hooked horns in real life? Much like your hypothetical example, your argument doesn't really hold much weight...

You DO realize that Unicorns don't REALLY exist right?? So what basis do you have to base your theory that their horns MUST be cylindrical?? Not to mention, since when does anything in WoW make sense or is anatomically correct? it's called a FANTASY for a reason...So,going by your "theory", those giant demons in legion with blade style horns on their heads should just have the corpses of our fallen brethren stuck to their faces as well...

Now now, remember what Blizzard said: World of Warcraft doesn't have unicorns.

According to the zoo in Suramar they are called monohorns!

As for the horn and antler matter, many types of elk and deer has horns unsuited for fighting. It does happen that during mating season competing males do get stuck to another, and thus both die of dehydration/starvation.

Perhaps now you understand why we never see them IRL. Evolution caused them to go extinct.

D.E.H.T.A. is just preventing their extinction.

 

Only YOU can prevent magical forest felfires!

I would say, their horns act like bee stings. They use it as a weapon to badly injure their enemy (thats what the hookform is for) and then loose the horn and die in vain. (Or become a normal horse in the process :'o)

Or the other option is, using it as a distraction like the tails of geckos. They can loose their tails that still move when cut, as a distraction to flee and regrow the tail later. Those unicorns can maybe loose the horn and its a magical glowy distraction for attackers, and regrow the horn later.

Uni-bee or Uni-gecko. Who won? Who's next? You deciiiide!

Maybe the unicorn horns were the PITA that the achievement D.E.H.T.A.'s Little P.I.T.A was talking about!

      Here come this week's first hotfixes, with the already announced Legion legacy loot rules along with some more visual tweaks to dungeons, specifically Ashvane Warden in Tol Dagor.
      March 31 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Ashvane Warden The ground visual for Lockdown should remain visible when Projected Textures is disabled in the System Settings menu. Ashvane Warden The ground visual for Lockdown should remain visible when Projected Textures is disabled in the System Settings menu. Items and Rewards
      Legion Raids and Dungeons [With regional restarts] Legacy loot rules are now in place for Legion raids and dungeons. Developers’ note: Standard encounters drop an amount of loot scaled by the amount of players in the raid, which results in fewer pieces for players who defeated encounters in small groups or as a solo player. In Legacy loot rules, raid and dungeon encounters will drop a fixed quantity of class-agnostic loot, regardless of the group size.

      This week's bonus event revolves around world quests making it the ideal time to farm reputation and unlocking Allied Races.
      The Sign of the Emissary buff increases the amount of reputation gained from World Quests by 50%, and all Allied Races require exalted with their respective factions to become unlocked. Completing 20 world quests rewards 1,000 War Resources. Check out our Mechagnomes and Vulpera guides to learn more about how to unlock the latest Allied Races.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Chart a course across Kul Tiras and Zandalar for this week’s Bonus Event – World Quests.
      THIS WEEK
      All week, open your map (default hotkey-"m") and select any of the Kul Tiras or Zandalar regions to view the World Quests available to you. To find out more about each World quest, simply hover your mouse over a World Quest on the map to see what tasks are needed to complete it, the rewards you’ll receive, and the time remaining that the quest is available to you.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Toopa in Boralus or Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar has a quest for you—The World Awaits. You can also start the quest from within the Adventure Guide (Shift-J). Quest requirement: Complete 20 World Quests in Kul Tiras, Zandalar, Mechagon, or Nazjatar Reward: 1,000 War Resources Passive buff: +50% to Reputation gains from World Quests If you’ve been looking to impress some emissaries, this is the week to do it!
      EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

      If you're making use of the XP buff leveling new characters and you're tired of the Warlords of Draenor intro questline, which involves Khadgar, there's a workaround at level 90 to skip it and here's how.
      Note that the Warlords of Draenor intro rewards a fair amount of XP these days, and you are sacrificing it to save time with the skip.
      At level 90, you must head to Khadgar and complete the intro prologue to Draenor. While the intro gives you a fair amount of Experience with the double XP buff, chances are you could have grown tired of completing it over and over on multiple characters.
      We recommend using the skip ideally if you have:
      Unlocked Draenor Pathfinder (flying in Draenor), because you will end up in Gorgrond and it will take you some time to head back to your Garrison to start questing; Inflatable Mount Shoes on a mount for water walking in case you have no flying unlocked, which makes it less painful reaching locations and unlocking your Garrison. At level 90, take the portal from Stormwind/Orgrimmar to Jade Forest and head to the Timeless Isle in Pandaria (see map below for exact location). There, you will find an underwater cave with chairs. Sit on them and click the campfire to teleport to Gorgrond.

      From there, you can head to Iron Docks if you have a flying mount, and the flight master will take you to your Garrison even though they (the flight masters) aren't marked on the map.

      We have some more art-related content, but this time around it's not just fans painting their favorite characters, but actually transforming WoW into a painting - and without using any mod! Now, there's plenty of mods already out there that you can use to change the game's aesthetics, but with Blizzard's recent tightening of EULA enforcement, it could possibly be risky using some of them (although they've been mostly safe to use so far).
      This one requires an Nvdia card and is much, much easier than putting a mod in, you just need the Geforce app and to click a few things, and your game could be looking like this (just click on the image and the video will play):
      As noted by the poster, kathrad_, this also messes with the UI, so you're either going to have to just use it to marvel at the visuals around the world, or be really good with your spec rotation, as you won't really be seeing much of the UI. Also, perhaps don't go raiding or doing high M+ keys, as ground effects and similar probably won't be as noticeable.
      Interestingly, there are plenty of people in the reddit thread that actually didn't note the difference in the look of the game, saying that the above just looks like regular Darnassus! I guess it's been on fire for so long people have a very painterly memory of the once Night Elf capital.
      If you have some great mods that alter the game's look, share em below and let's see just how much WoW can be changed.
