    You are right, the reward being a kite is actually speculation based on the datamined Kite mount that is limited to alliance only.

    That there is going to be a reward, though, there is no doubt.

    Also, 200 mount achievement would be nice, as would a 250 mount achieve. 300? Thats a bit of a strectch, Im pretty sure there arent even 300 mounts thats actually been in the game. Including datamined, yes, theres 300, but currently, theres around 283 mounts in the game itself, 30-40 arent obtainable.

    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    Just hit over 200, had over 150 since like forever, would be nice for them to have 150 and 200 implemented when 200 is still relatively difficult to get.

    About time! 3 mounts of to get this achieve, so pretty sure i will instantly get this when the patch drops

    I just recently hit 150, and I'm severely disappointed with this awful reward. I'm sorry, I was expecting something nice, like pet collectors get. But nope. Not for us. (Not to say I don't collect pets as well, but yeah. Just frustrated that we get a KITE. A KITE. Seriously.)
    Honestly I agree they're way, way late on this. I would hope a 200 and 250 come much sooner than this bloody thing came.

    I had 152 mounts before MoP launch and I didn't even have the Netherwing mounts, I definitely think they should add a 200 mount achievement while they're at it, getting 150 mounts is pretty easy these days tbh.

    You're griping about a recolor when practically every dragon mount in the game is a "recolor?" I know that there is a difference between "reskin" and "recolor" but lets be honest here, it could be damned near the same thing.

    But to each their own though I suppose, as I don't really collect things.

    I'm pretty close to 150 mounts, but this is kind of a lack-luster reward...

    I was okay with the Red Dragonhawk, mainly because I play a Blood Elf and absolutely love using it. But a kite? Uhm, I'll pass.

    Remember that the Kite can be a placeholder. Nothing is official yet.

    While on the mount topic. I bought Travelers tundra mamoth, Told barad ground mount etc just before mop. Then i faction changed. Is there a way to get them back? I sure as hell wont buy them again.

    Changing back.

    That adds up to 272.

    Or do the cross-faction mounts that you cant access count?
    Cross faction counts for the overall total, yes. My friend who plays mainly Horde created an alliance toon after the patch and bought the mounts and got the 100 mount achieve from doing it that way.

    Wow, they could've done a nice mount like Heavenly Jade serpent, but no we get some sticks and cloth. Thanks blizz.

    i dont like recolors but rather give me nice recolor of the most basic drake than the fucking lame kite which i will never use

    Reskin and recolor are the same thing... a remodel would be giving an old skeleton a new model.

    Seeing as I'm 95% sure that this "jade kite" is going to be the new mount achievement reward, I'm none too happy about it. And no, I DON'T care that it's (likely) a recolor, and I wouldn't care if it's a remodel. I DO care about the very simple fact that it's a KITE. Maybe some people genuinely like the idea of a kite, but I can't help but feel that it's a pretty darn lame reward. There are many, MANY other suitable models that I feel would have made a better mount. Heavenly jade cloud serpent? Infinite drake? Devilsaur? That moose we were promised? I would have taken those, no questions asked. But I can't help but feel that a kite is a very, very underwhelming reward.

    It would be nice if they added in a 200 mount achieve while they are at it. I am sitting at 195 mounts at the moment, and i am still missing most of the MOP ones. Guess we will have to wait another few years for that one.

    I actually really like the dragonhawks. If I didn't feel obligated to use rare mounts like ashes all the time, I would definitely be riding dragonhawks.

    Well the achievement shows a cloud serpent guys so we don't know yet
