    Obtained Winterspring Frostsaber without being exalted?

    Hello. As the title states, I today discovered that I have somehow obtained a Winterspring Frostsaber without being exalted with the Wintersaber Trainers. I am in fact neutral.

    I discovered this when browsing through my achievements, and I noticed that amongst the 5 most recent achievements was "Winterspring Frostsaber" obtained 2nd of December 2012.

    Does anyone have a good explanation for this?

    Did you recently race change or realm change?

    Sometimes they mess up the conversion.

    If you have Venomhide Ravasaur on a horde character, it gets converted to the Winterspring Frostsaber when you play an alliance character.

    I had a related experience with achievements yesterday. I received the 9k point achievement with only 8925 total points.

    Nope, nothing of this.

    Yes, I suspected this as well. I play my ally toons all the time, and yesterday I logged onto a druid I hardly ever use that has the Venomhide Raptor. It's not the first time I log him though, but perhaps for a few weeks, so the change has to be quite recent?
    Anyway, thanks for clearing up.

    Likely related to this bug from a few days ago. Alts started picking up achievements from other characters on the Battle.Net account.

    doesn't it change the faction as well though? so she/he would still be exalted

    Kind of what I was thinking.

    A lot of horde only mounts got made to transfer to alliance recently and vice versa. Though IDK how many, what I would like to see is this go into place for the tourny mounts, I certiantly don't want to lose them when I change.

    For instance, I have 60 mounts on an alliance char and 120 on my horde. No idea why this is. If i have a sunreaver, I should have the silver covenant equivalent.
    It was never Hardcore Vs Casual. It was Socialites Vs. Solo players

    I have quite a few mounts that got converted with 5.1. Spectral Wolf -> Horse, all of my Horde mammoths (glad I didn't end up buying the Tundra one on Alliance), Spectral Wyvern -> Gryphon, Venomhide Ravasaur -> Frostsaber, Sunreaver Dragonhawk -> Silver Covenant Hippogryph (this is the only Tournament mount I have that got converted. I don't have the Sunreaver ground mount though, no idea if it does).

    Sad that the Black War PVP mounts and other Tournament mounts didn't make it.
