It should come with a custom sound pack: Classic Betty.

Or at least a warhorn. Enemy Mech--Destroyed.

hmm… kinda underwhelming.
The bolt-ons in the Stryker Pack were really nice because they added something to the mechs look itself. I can't really get excited about the little guys all over my mech. I'd never use these bolt-ons.
The camo could be interesting in a different color scheme I guess, but it can't hold a candle to the Grand Dragon's pattern.

Pass for me (unless the DW gets some major updates to mobility and the camo is actually a sort of glow in the dark effect. that would be rad.)

Checked out the variants on Sarna, ECM for a Timby is going to be extremely popular.

Dire Wolf is inconsistent to the Sarna loadout though (probably as a result of fixed equipment in the mech that functions as a nerf). From what I see in the model, it has two PPCs and three laser mounts. Sarna build is two ATM 6's, four med pulse, two PPCs, ECM, jump jets (probably four), and an SSRM4 launcher along with ECM. Are we going to get some changes to the Dire Whale to address this or not?

It's all there in the specs below. The art will come.

While I REALLY appreciate the Timber slots which is even useable with So8 both feel sliiiightly P2W if you ask me.
Compared to the mediocre IS heavies, these two really bring something new to the battlefield.
Timber with ECM will be powerfull and Dire with ECM and one JJ in CT even more.

WOW some one remembers NETMECH, ok i ran a mech like that, but LRM 15s and no MGs or small laser, but sadly in Mech Online---- your better off with the large lasers and 3 med lasers and your skill in jump jetting, on the timber.
and then hunting lights, providing you have a high speed computer and are a good shoot, if only we could use a joystick, in this game---- the 3 weapon system would rock, but sadly its does not work

Just bought Pre-Order for Warden Booster Pack!

Thank you for putting this out before the MW5 rollout deadline;
understand how tight manpower must be at times like these!

And thank you MWO/PGI for trusting Cauldron/Gulag;
here's to hoping that things would go smoothly for both mobility and quirk rollout!

Sweet, picked it up.

I thought the Elementals were kind of a cool touch. Also liked the nod to the old MW2 style.

Why is there .5 tons of SSRM ammo in the DWF? It doesn't have SSRMs. Otherwise I'm super excited about this.

I'll wait for the set of 8 quirks on the timber. If good will get the pack, if not will pass. The ECM torso will come out eventually anyways. The dire wolf ECM CT is nice but the mech itself is highly situational.

I agree with this statement. What would really be cool is if PGI got Carole Ruggier to reprise her role for a Classic Betty Warhorn. Now that would be sick!

EDIT: Now I know that it is wishful thinking since we already have the Mechwarrior 2 Voice Pack Mod, but a man can dream.
