Patch 4.2 Mounts Preview
We now have a decent amount of information on Patch 4.2 and I can start building nice recap/previews, let's start with mounts!

PvP Mounts - Twilight Drake PvP Mounts
Gladiators get a brand new mount next season! As far as datamining goes the color of the new Vicious Gladiator's Twilight Drake seems to be that one.

PvP Mounts - Epic Wolf and Horse PvP Mounts
Two new awesome PvP mounts have been added, the Horde War Wolf and the Alliance War Steed are rewards of the Veteran of the Horde II and Veteran of the Alliance II achievements. There's also a couple of recolors but as far as I know only the first 2 pictures below are used.





PvE Mounts - Fire Hawks
3 different Fire Hawks are currently in the game files but only 2 seem to be implemented/have a known drop location.







PvE Mount - Fire "Raven God" / Flametalon of Alysrazor
The Fire "Raven God" model is the Flametalon mount from Flametalon of Alysrazor. The mount isn't listed as a loot from Alysrazor in the Encounter Journal for the moment but it's very likely that it will drop from this boss, let's just wait and see if there's an official confirmation in an upcoming PTR build.



PvE Mount - Flameward Hippogryph
The Flameward Hippogryph is a reward of the The Molten Front Offensive, you can get this achievement by completing all the questlines of the new Firelands daily quests area.

    really sick of the cool mounts being purely rare raid based mounts.. if you're not the raid leader / guild leader / or girlfriend of .. then the only hope is offering obscene amounts of money to be the first to get it. So dumb.

    The PvP horde wolf is probably the best looking ground mount in the game. The horse, on the other hand, looks like a table.

    Nerfnow tells it like it was. People tend to forget....

    Yeah..mount looks very obviously re-assembled. Final model?

    you don't seem to grasp the difference between models and skins.
    skeleton= the basic frame works of a moving digital object.
    models= the visual item that goes over the skeleton.
    skin= the visual texture of the model.
    palette= the hues of the skin and portions of the skin.

    what your asking for isn't a new model, cause we got alot of those recently actually.
    your asking for a new skeleton and animation pack, something that takes a considerable amount of time to get to the polished point we see for them in WoW.

    Ok fair enough, i meant Skeleton. Are they that expensive/time consuming/difficult to do? Or are Blizzard just that lazy?

    yah i agree, they should just be handed out like candy so none of them are unique at all, why should people have anything unique in the game, after all we all pay 15$ a month !
