MMO-Champion - Worgen Mounts
Update - You might want to check this out.

Running Wild - No Worgen Mounts
This is now official, Worgens won't get their own mounts, they will get a mount racial spell instead.
  • Running Wild - Drop to all fours to run as fast as a wild animal.

This is also of course very different from the original Plainsrunning implemented for taurens. We have no plans to try and bring that ability back in any form.

Ultimately, we feel Running Wild fits very well with the nature of the worgen race. Rather than getting a physical mount, they get down and sprint on all fours. When you're playing a worgen, it just feels awesome.

    After seeing how alchemists will be able to transform into a mount through getting the recipe via discovery. Perhaps the Gilnean Quartermaster can probably sell vials that allows other Alliance's to turn into a Worgen. >.< I wonder if Blizz had thought of this or whatever.

    FFFUUUU!!!!
    That's what I was thinking. So using Blizzard's logic, Worgen are too beastly to have their own mounts yet they are able to ride other mounts. Makes no sense. Now we get a race with two running spells. One lets you run fast, the other lets you run really really fast.

    The current beta build with the worgen holding a human 'puppet' is particularly amusing. Vid on YouTube by totalbiscuit.

    Question: Why are the Worgen slowly getting uglier, I mean I might not speak for all of us but i think they are starting to look like rats. I recently had the model viewer and decided to plan out how my character would look. I went with the female worgen and she looked great. Now Im not sure if its worth considering remaking her. She looks like she has rabies and bulging eyes now.
