    Question Pterrordax Mounts raid only?

    Hey guys, I just saw a note about the Pterrordax mount saying it was a Glory of the Raider mount so I'm a bit worried as an RPer and only LFR raider whether we'd get a version or not....Would love it on my troll!

    Unless they decide to add one as a drop from... something, I'm pretty sure that this one mount will be the only pterrordax mount around. If firelands and DS are anything to go by, the meta mounts have a monopoly on their model, unless they also share it with a drop from the raid. This is compounded, at least so far, by the fact that there's only one Pterrordax icon, and one pterrordax mount item, who's color is not indicated by the name.

    Which is a crying shame, they have so many cool colors for them... sad to waste them all by making only one of them a mount.

    Hey, GC stalks around here, right? Make one of the pterrordax mounts the 200 mount achievement pretty please!

    Well, it says armored for the raid achievement, so maybe there'll be unarmored ones available otherwise.

    Do we know what mount the new faction/s offer?

    I am sure the Blizzard store will have some form of one in the next few months.

    Those are still absent from what I can tell... The only "unaccounted for" mounts that exist as actual items (to my knowledge) so far are the various devilsaur reskins of the raptors (one of which will come from the bone harvesting,) the new waterstrider colors, the spectral skeletal steed, and the bat... Neither the spectral skeletal steed nor the bat strike me as either Kirin Tor or Sunreaver faction rewards... though the bat could be a new shado-pan rep mount, I suppose.

    (also perhaps relevant, they added an icon for a "white" cloud serpent as well)

    I suppose it's worth mentioning that the dinosaurs and pterrodax don't really fit with the Kirin tor/sunreavers either, but... come on, they're dinosaurs/prehistoric reptiles... They're automatically relevant to everything.

    The water striders would "fit" with the new grind factions simply because they're the sort of banal mounts that usually get dumped on them... but plain and simple, if the water striders are the only new mounts I can potentially get my hands on... I will be angry.

    As for the pterrordax, and indeed new mounts in general, what I dislike is that they create so many of these awesome skins for the mounts, but don't use them... then people complain that the reward feels "diluted" because they see so many people on "their" mount. I think blizzard has the right idea when they do the cloud serpent/netherwing/talbuk/nether ray thing... they have a model (mostly) unique to the rep or what have you, but they have multiple skins available so they you don't see everyone chugging around on the same one.

    I agree with you; it's nicer to have several colours for these different mounts rather than the one colour mount, it allows us more customisation and for RPers an extra level of uniqueness.

    Still I'll be gutted if the new rep mounts are water striders :/

    Somehow I think they might just be adding the new water striders to Angler's rep, or making them fishable. They don't really gel with the Isle of Thunder theme.

    No the others are from the Kirin Tor & Sun Reaver Questline on the Isle of Thunder. We get it at the end I bet it works like the Green Proto Drake & the Oracles

    The spectral undead horse is accounted for via the TCG. Makes me sad, was devilishly looking forward to doing whatever I could to get that... I have neither 200$ nor 300k gold. *sobs in a corner*

    Proofies: This

    More OT, I hope there's other ways to get one. I'd be fine letting glory acheiv have a super amrored one but let us peons have a naked one. My fear is both the Pterrordax and the bat will be locked behind something really hard for most people to do/stupid luck.

    Won't be blizz store, 2 blizz store mounts in one expansion? Sparkle horse = Wotlk, Afro lion = Cata, Banana dragon = end of cata, goatdragon horse = MoP. So I think it won't be a blizz store mount so soon.

    You just said there were 2 from Cata, why wouldn't another one from MOP make sense?

    Because they have just added a new one, i don't think they'll add another until the end of MoP or so.

    Oh, I meant more-so I hope the mount at the end of the questline for the two new factions is the Pterodactyl.

    Even if there ended up being no alternative version available, the meta mount will not get removed and there will likely be many runs for it in the next expansion. It would just take bit longer for you to obtain the mount.

    Would absolutely love it if they brought back mounts that could only be earned through raiding.
