Your spell power is now equal to 50% of your attack power, and you no longer benefit from other sources of spell power. Grants 6% of your maximum mana every 2 sec.

Talents
  • Burst of Speed - On live, you can't use BoS to clear snares if Sprint is active. We're fixing that but ensuring the speed boosts don't stack. The ability to clear snares while Sprint was active was broken about one month ago in a hotfix. (Source)

    I wonder if that mount is connected to Hearthstone

    That horse mount continues to look hideous.

    Hopefully we're edging nearer to a WoD Beta, however.

    Too bad Blizzard didn't put matching pieces to the mog helms in the store or in game, Hood of Hungering Darkness + matching set would look great with the new mount.

    The pony is likely an RAF mount, but we dunno about the silithid.

    My best guess is that the horse will be RAF and the other one will be store looking at the comments blizzard made regarding them when they released the pictures of them

    They just added the Fey Dragon and Iron Skyreaver. Adding more now would be pretty insulting, especially because we're being given little to no signs of the expansion being developed at this point.

    Those are some nice store mounts.

    Remember just because the Bug mounts shows up, don't mean will get it anything soon. Remember the Fey Dragon & Storm Crow they appeared during 5.2 ptr than how long it toke before we were able to get the Fey Dragon. Storm Crow who knows when we will get it or if it still exists.

    Wonderful, I wait to see all the store mount defenders come out now, when WoD clearly isn't as important as making that ravager

    Hopefully one is a reward for a virtual Blizzcon ticket, the other RaF or store.

    Can't be rare drops in-game can they, not with level 20 requirement? All rare drops I've seen are 85 or 90.

    Childish reaction. Why does one have to exclude the other? I dare say they'll earn more cash from WoD release than store mounts at that, if you need the usual greed argument.

    One mount model using an already existing skeleton is peanuts compared to an expansion. It won't affect progress, so stop the sensationalism.

    I got my hopes up seeing the title "new mounts" but alas once again reskins, does no one else get sick of seeing the same mounts over and over again just with new skins...........i mean i know its probably a lot of time to make completely new mounts and all but something new and different would be nice, look at tera onlines mounts for instance. I would really really love the idea of a horse drawn cart mount that holds 4 people or something or maybe a different type of animal altogether isntead of reskinned horse or reskinned dragon or reskinned protodrake over and over again.
