Mounts: Favorites and TBC's new additions.
Posted 12 September 2006 - 04:28 AM
And for those of you on easy-mode...
I haven't seen models yet (wowwiki discourages Alpha images or something), but I'm imagining Cockatrices will look something like a raptorish Mechanostrider and Elekks will look something like a squashed Kodo with horns. I was pretty sad that we wouldn't have a chance at cat mounts :( At least I don't feel compelled to grind BE quests and give them oodles of potential bandages like I did with my Wolf (<3).
A buddy of mine was talking about the Winterspring mount which only Alliance have access to, but I wasn't terribly impressed. It looks like that big purplish cat that every other Hunter seems to have. I saw an article about a potential raptor you can get in Un'Goro but I didn't see anything about faction, though I'm sure it will need Darkspear rep in addition to w/e(For the Winterspring mount you need Tiger riding skill).
That said, what is your favorite mount and will you try to go for these new additons (Provided you don't roll Draeni/BE)?
... That is if you waste your time/gold on these kinds of things :P What can I say, it keeps the game "fun".

As for me, I've been a big raptor fan since I won my [Swift Razzashi Raptor]. Cats don't interest me much, although the Cat mount from ZG looks pretty swell. If you really want a cat as mount as Horde, run a lot of ZG, but for the record: I have only seen it drop once since ZG came out :)

It looks like it's got kodo length/width, and double the height with giant horns.
There's one on youtube that I clicked on, and got a big red box with the text "This video has been removed at the request of copyright owner Blizzard Entertainment because its content was used without permission"... hahaha.
The only pictures of a cockatrice I could find have the same model as the tallstriders in Darkshore / Auberdine. From what I've read this is just a placeholder though, but you can get an idea of their movement / style from it.

That said, I do like super-shrunken bug mounts if for no other reason than their little legs just churn so fast as to be comical.

(However, my Blood Knight will be riding a Skeletal Warhorse, for sheer style points).

Shit, that's worth grinding another character up to 60 just to be able to haul ass around on an epic version ^_^
That is a really big mount

Found this... it's got A LOT of mobs in here... I'm thinking someone made a private server out of the alpha, spawned a ton of stuff and walked around.
If you want to see the mounts without spoilers to the rest of the mobs... 3:17 has an armored Elekk, 4:23 has an armored griffen, 4:35 has a wyvern that looks like it may be armored, it's hard to tell... there's a definate saddle on it but I haven't played horde enough to tell how much different it is than the current ones... 4:52 is the phoenix thing, and 6:01 is a white griffen.

I was jealous of the alliance Elekk when I saw the concept drawings but wow, talk about a big blundering goofy Dumbo! All I'd do is laugh if I saw one of those things coming my way. That and maybe offer it a circus peanut.
If you google "elekk" you'll find the mount.
I too am extremely fond of alternative mounts. My tauren shaman has had an Orgrimmar wolf for days and I'm about 200g from purchasing the Org wolf for my undead rogue. Easily my most prized possessions.

And neither of the 2 TBC mounts look very impressive to me. =/

So I've now got an epic Raptor, Wolf and Warhorse.
Also got the rep but not the gold to buy a Frostwolf.
And just need another 19k TB rep to get a Kodo.
