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.

    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
    They DO have access to the same content, companions, and mounts. If they want to obtain these items there is nothing stopping them from doing so.

    After reading these reactions...


    WTF blizzard!? This isn't even a CONTENT PATCH! Stop giving us rehashed old shit, omg! Money hungry bastards! You can totally tell that Deathwing's human form uses the human skeleton and walk animations as a base!
    ^ What I expect to hear when the Deathwing raid comes out.

    Alliance mount looks awesome with those heads. Much better than Horde ones imo.

    Are you also complaining that every human being has practically the same skeleton?

    I'm looking forward to getting that Flameward Hippogryph. I'm glad to see I can get a fiery hippogryph without buying TCG cards. I'm disappointed in the Gladiator mount. I'll stick with my unarmored version of the Twilight Drake, thanks. I'm not impressed with the fire hawks, and I like the Fiery Raven Lord mount. It's unfortunate only 1% of the playerbase will ever see it.

    Its weird how they award pathetic re-skins to the only part of the game that requires skill while the bpring monotone
    scripted doable-in-the-dark PVE-fights gets an awesome new mount.

    Way to fail yet again blizzard. subscription will not be renewed.

    I laugh hard at the glad mount.
    Btw ,I don't care about PvP,for me blizzard can delete pvp from the game,for sure WoW will be a better game without it.

    I wonder how the PVE monkeys would like to get the same exact mount every raid tier with a different color. I wonder how they would like every tier gear to be the exact same with a slightly different color and a few spikes put onto the gear. You monkey retards would be bitching up a storm. God knows all you sheep care about is a DPS meter. Take a seat.

    Shame that those firehawks are only given to no-life losers.

    Dunno what are you moaning about, that armour plating on the drake looks pretty awesome.

    Maybe that green firehawk will drop from that new firehawk rare Andrazor in Hyjal? *crosses fingers* =)
