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.

Dark Legacy Comics #290, with an extra comic from Nerfnow.com this week!

    so what´s the difference between this drake and any other gladiator drake? there wasn´t a single unique one between them they´ve just put armor on already existing drakes which matched the current theme(nether,frostbrood...).
    do you complain because it´s cool to complain about reskins nowadays or can you tell me the difference?(rhetorical question, there is none)

    Also reskining is simpler and cheaper.

    On the plus side, at least they aren't the ugly Wind Drakes :P
    I miss the days when an armoured version of a (now not so) 'rare' mount was awesome... The original 2 gladiator Netherdrakes were the shizz

    I still find the alliance war steed to be cooler looking then the horde one mainly cus of the lack of alliance race heads on it..... where the steed has the undead, troll and orc heads at the back of it.
