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.

    It makes a bit more sense with agile wolves though.

    Also apparently it's gonna take me 40 hours to download part 2...i assume this is most likely due to blizzards download servers getting slammed.

    Wow, and here I was thinking I couldn't possibly be MORE excited for Worgen!

    This implies that the Horde get more Mounts total - and therefore will get the 150-Mounts-Achievement much faster *cry*

    Little saddened that I won't get a new racial mount to add to my collection. Hopefully they even up the horde -> alliance racial mount numbers. And no, I'm not talking about dropped mount fairness so don't bother with that argument. Unless they make the trikes goblin only, then I hope Ally get an equivalent addition to the mounts

    I think the backround downloader has a speed limit because well, it's a BACKROUND downloader, not supposed to be fast... I guess. Since mine is going equally slow. lol
    This makes me grr. ;D

    Nice, I'm pretty sure blizz will compensate for the alliance in some for a special mount for them.

    They're getting faction mounts, but they're getting a very unique type of mount as well.

    Hey mods: What does my opinion have to do with whining? I haven't been crying about it, just think they should get mounts to.

    Others have said worse then I have, yet I seen no edits to their comments. Worgen need mounts, that's something many of us look forward to gaining rep then buying their mount to haul around and show it off. This way none of us will be able to do that.
