    Seriously agreed. They do this with every single species...can't be assed to make female versions. I mean, look at taunka. Males and females, but males look unique and females are white tauren. Who's surprised anymore?

    Alright, I'll give you the Jinyu(even then, they have male bodies) but how about the Yaunka and Mogu? And who knows! Fem Mogu would prolly look really cool C:

    Ugh I know D: I would have loved to see fem Djinn, "Dragonmen"(Maloriak), Tol'vir, furbolg, wolvar etc etc. I could go on and on. It prolly takes too many resources to make both but gosh durnit I'd like to see what the designers could come up with.

    For Yaunka, I don't remember seeing female Taunka. Could be wrong being all Alliance over here. Seen a female Ogre? They are hanging out with the female Mogu. A lot of NPC races don't have both sex models. I suppose it wastes art assets to give them both sexes considering it'd only be an aesthetic effect.

    Other way around. Racial mount is the Yaks - the Cloud Serpents are basically the Pandarian equivalent to the Wintersaber grind.

    I hope they stop calling it serpents. They are clearly modeled after chinese zodiac dragons. Its like calling lions cats.

    Is there a quote from the Devs confirming this to be the case? I like both mounts I just must've misread the quote. Having said that, I FREAKIN CALLED IT. I remember telling my guildies and RL friends that a Yak would be perfect. We don't have any bull-like mounts in the game and it fits the MoP theme. Can't wait to say I told you so

    Wrong. You get one netherdrake for free when you reach exalted rep, and there's an NPC back on the nether... whatever faction it is place that sells the others for (if I remember right) 200 gold.

    Yep: Drake Dealer Hurlunk is the NPC's name.

    I believe he is wrong, the Pandaren have been talked about to get a turtle land mount, and I think one of these serpents (this may be incorrect but Pandaren may not need the dailies don't judge me!).
    I think they also said anyone could get these but it would have 20 days of dailies just like the wintersaber nowadays.
    http://www.wowdb.com/items/82765-dragon-turtle-egg may be the land mount I talked about. I remember them saying someone about it just before beta in one of the interviews.

    Yeah yeah yeah, a Komodo Dragon is a lizard, a Kiwi is a bird. It's just a name, not an encyclopedical entry. Have a cup of tea and loosen those pants bit.
    Btw those mounts look SICK! Finally something I'm more than moderately excited about!
