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.

Unknown Recolor

Unknown Recolor



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.

    everyone pays the same so they should have access to the same content, companions and mounts because if they do not then there is a chance that they will cancel their subscription

    There are mounts for winning 150 rBG, already getting it when the patch comes out, but will there be mounts as rewards for the 300 wins achievement?

    yes, they are very time consuming to make and make a whole range of animations for, then polish them, then fit the model onto it, check the clipping of the model when doing tha animations, then add the skin/pallet, etc.
    making a good model take alot of going back again and again and again and again and again....

    NOW HIRING: Cataclysm team expansion.

    Need to have good Microsoft paint skills (recolouring stuff we already made).
    Also need to be creative (we need thoughts on how we can use what we already have and how we can modify it to 'new' stuff, without doing too much as I am tired and really cbf - (diablo is coming out soon)).

    wow you can really see how terrible that Glad Mount is, the Armor pieces have higher resolution and most likely polygons then the dragon itself...just wow

    So the Flameward Hippogryph is a reward for just completing all the firelands quests? How hard is it to do that, ive not been on PTR.

    takes 4 days to get into the firelands daily area, you need 20 marks.
    that s all i remember.
    then theres the 2 factions and 3 end on the line hubs that you have to unlock.

    true, but the armour sets always look well clunky on humans, and now they get to ride around on those horses.... to look dumb, alongside the worgens prancing about on all fours.

    AJ has known about these reskins for a while now. (glad you're just now noticing) Thread here:

    arenajunkies.com/topic/199203-images-of-gladiator-mount-confirmed/

    Best post of the thread here, showing just how lazy Blizzard truly is being by giving blatant reskins to the top 0.5% of arena players, something that definitely deserves better than the treatment that's been given lately:

    arenajunkies.com/topic/199203-images-of-gladiator-mount-confirmed/page__view__findpost__p__3265284

    There's a follow-up post on the next page. Gladiators will just have to suck it up, as usual.

    P.S. "10 minutes in photoshop"

    Last time I checked, this is all content that is available to everyone. The issue is how much effort are you willing to put in, and that is not an availability issue, it's a personal choice of time dedication. How much time do you want to invest in becoming a good player, minmaxing your character and forming a welloiled machine with others of this mindset to achieve the things that don't just drop out of the Furbolg's ass.

    The choice is yours to go for it or not. If you choose not to, well, you will not own the mount, simple

    I love Alliance War Steed and Horde War Wolf

    Ground mount are still important since some people are living in RBGs and arenas

    I plan on playing MLS, Shatterplay, or Shadowplay S10... With two casters that both have the staff. I'm going to pick up PvE'ers and teach them how to play. Should be fun.
