Patch 5.3 PTR - Build 16781
Build 16781 will be deployed to the PTR realms soon.

  • The 200 mount achievement now rewards a red or blue Armored Dragonhawk, based on your faction.
  • Many new item level 516 items with random stats have been added, with the possibility of at least some of them being heroic scenario loot.
  • New Item Level 600 cloaks were added, which are likely related to Wrathion's quest line. There are cloaks for all four of the August Celestials and Wrathion mentions augmenting the power of your cloak after speaking to them.
  • PvP Resilience has been removed from most gear and stats have been rebalanced on other PvP gear.
  • Two new horse like mounts have been added, but only one has a working model.
  • A new PvP tabard and enchants were added.

    errrr what? how many dragonhawks?

    there are currently only 4 dragonhawk mounts.

    1 is TCG and unavailable for the vast majority of players. 1 belongs to the other faction and 1 is horde specific from the sunreavers in the Wotlk Tourny event (alliance get a neat hippogryph)

    You might as well be whining about how many water mounts blizz is throwing us

    ---------- Post added 2013-03-29 at 08:27 AM ----------

    i quite like the dragonhawks, if they were creating a new model people would be bitching about why they were different and why blizz cant be consistent with their creatures (like people did with the sandstone and "of the wind" drakes in cata that were quite different from the usual drakes).

    the different skins are quite nice.

    up to 208 mounts and i get rewarded with another shitty dragonhawk. FUCK YEA! >.>

    @dragonhawks for 200 mounts They're a step up from the kites at 150, but still not something I would want to show off. Blizzard needs to realize that by the time you have 200 mounts, you have a lot of shit that's way cooler than this.

    This. +1

    If you are colecting mounts , when you have 200 , you will have some very rare and beautifull mounts.

    And why would you use an 5 years old lazy ugly reskin ?
    Those 2 dragonhawks are simply useless .
    Basically they won't be used by the mount collectors.

    Blizzard should stop being lazy and actually do a mount these people will use instead one they 100% won't use.

    I see no reason to put in the game a mount very rare and pretty ugly.
    1% will get it , and 1% of those will use it. Wasted development time .

    Blizzard, remember , the people colecting mounts are those that care the most about mounts in your game. And is not a nice thing to just throw them something , anything, without caring.

    So it might be like the TCG loot item Hitching Post for that mount.
    "SteelWarhorseMount" sounds for me like exclusive blacksmithing mount. BS needs some love.

At that time, Mogu were not flesh but stone, just like the statues they animate. Apparently at some point The Master went reallyyyyyyyyy quiet, and the Mogu succombed to the Curse of Flesh, just like dwarves and gnomes. But instead of being a slow process like for dwarves and Gnomes, it happened suddenly, and it leaded to huges inter-Mogu wars between clans, because no one knew how to deal with this.

    Lei Shen seem to have gone at the Nalak'sha Engine (and then became the First Emperor of the Mogu) at that time. This is also why they aren't any female Mogu, apart from the 2 creatons Lei Shen gave to himself. There's no need for them since the Mogu were created from scratch.

    All this to say that, obviously, "The Master" must be a Titan and the Mogu his creations, thus explaining why the Mogu have so many Titan intel in the Throne of Thunder, why they were able to harness the power of the Nalak'sha Engine in the first place and why Lei Shen managed to capture Ra-Den. So actually the "MoguTitan" pic make alot of sense, maybe it's the Titan who modeled the Mogu after his image, or maybe it's a Ra-Den like guardian put in place.
    Interesting theory. Just to elaborate further on it: if you look carefully enough, you can see the face of this "mogu titan" between the clouds depicted in Throne of Thunder's loading screen.

    The dragonhawk looks pretty cool, I don't see what people are complaining about. I wish I had 200 mounts

    PvP Resilience has been removed from most gear and stats have been rebalanced on other PvP gear.
    To all the nerds who attacked me when i said that by removing resilience from gear there will be a raise in the other stats, eat it :P

    You!

    Blacksmithing mount sounds good! 'bout time we got something fancy, indeed, even though I'm not crazy about its looks.
  1. Runeweaver's Avatar
    Wow, that Horse mount looks gorgeous!
    Also really liking those Dragonhawk looks...
  1. Suicune's Avatar
    I'm quite pleased with the Dragonhawks. I have a lot of rare mounts and will definitely be riding this over them for quite a while after I get it the day patch drops. Both are nice, but I'm glad I am Alliance since that is my preferred skin of the two. Lots of fun new things coming with patch, disappointed that tri-spec might not make the cut :/

    Wha...? No, that's Lei Shen. Teeth going up-and-out, helmet with a part in between his eyes and layered, very clearly Lei Shen.

    But yeah, the Mogu-Titan relationship might be the closest Creator-Offspring relationship we've seen... and about time we got to some ACTUAL titan meddling, Ra'den just doesn't cut it anymore after Algalon for me personally.

    On topic; The model could've used some sprucing up, but it's a nice texture and we don't have many dragonhawks yet! Beats our 50 mounts anniversary and the 100 one... albeit a retexture of that one. It is lacking in imagination, that's for sure.

    Anyone else feel that its kinda lame they are giving us an armored dragonhawk for a 200 mount achievement reward? Seriously, they could of done something much better. They already gave us a dragonhawk.

    They are seriously lacking freaking imagination. I think the reward for having 200 mounts should be much more than a stupid armored dragonhawk.

    Item level 600 trifecta cloaks. Mind = blown. Seems that only the heal/tank cloaks will be reforged by players as a result (unless DPS wants to take tanking stats). Or will any of the cloaks be tagged for reforging at all? Hmm...

    I think the person was looking more at how you won't be able to change spec while doing Celestial Challenge. Could be wrong.
