    Race Flying mounts...

    Just curious does anyone know why blizzard didn't implement race flying mount's? I mean it seems like it would make sense since each race has there own land mounts why not flying mounts?

    Because there's basically no lore specific flying mount for a lot of races.
    We got:
    Orcs - wyvern
    Gnomes - Gryphon
    Blood elf - dragonhawk
    Night Elf - hypogryph
    Trolls - bats
    ~gnomes - helicopter

    Nothing for :
    Humans
    Worgens
    Drannei
    Undead
    Taurens
    Goblins

    What? Completely wrong its the Dwarves that uses Gryphons not Gnomes, all Dwarves in Twilight Highlands will go to war with you Also Undead are the ones using Bats not Trolls.

    Trolls use bats too. It's their druid form, their village's flight master mount...
    And it looks like he meant to say dwarves have gryphons, but wrote gnomes instead.

    goblins and gnomes use mechanical flying machines, planes, choppers, ect
    humans typically use gryphons due to their relationship with dwarves thats probably why
    undead and trolls both use bats
    blood elves use dragonhawks
    nightelves use hippogryphs
    worgens would also use gryphons
    orcs use wyverns
    trolls also use wind serpents

    tauren are typically grazing hunters and nomads so never really had a need for flying and draenei dont need flying mounts when they have spaceships

    dwarves also sometimes use planes

    Well Wyverns can be called to both Orcs and Tauren's mount. As it was in wc3, the tauren recommended freeing them from the harpies and such. True they were not riding them in wc3, but they knew of them, and suggesting to use them.

    But straight race

    Gnomes: Gnomish Flying Machine
    High/Blood: Dragonhawks
    Dwarves: Gryphons
    Trolls: Bats
    Night Elves: Hypogryphs
    Orcs: Wyverns
    Forsakened: Vampiric Bats
    Tauren: Wyverns
    Humans: Gryphons (diplomacy)
    Goblins: Zepplins
    Pandaren: Kites and windserprents (chinese dragon thingy)
    worgen: gryphons probably since they were apart of the second war.
    Draenai: Hypogryphs (on azeroth) thanks to the night elves, otherwise space ships

    If we're going to be really specific here, UD use Gargoyles, not bats. WoW is the first game in which the UD used Bats. In WCIII there was only the Batrider unit which was an Orc unit that had a troll on a bat. UD use Gargoyles and Frost Wyrms.

    Why is there no "Demonhunter" hero class yet? He was only the coolest hero in WC3. Get busy Blizzard.

    Undead - Risen gryphon (zombie gryphon, similar to the DK griffon but more fleshy/decayed.
    Orc - Wyvern
    Troll - Bat
    Blood Elf - Dragon hawk
    Goblin - Jet pack (they're just crazy enough to strap a rocket to their back)
    Tauren - Giant eagle (going with the plains theme and whatnot, nothing else really suits them)

    Dwarf - Gryphon
    Human - Pegasus (maybe? if dwarves are claiming the gryphons)
    Gnome - Helicopter backpack
    Night elf - Hippogryph
    Draenei - Nether rays
    Worgen - ?

    Panda - kites

    Worgen should get Flying Wild.

    Trolls were the ones using bats in the RTS games.

    I hated that sound. So. Much. Though I loved when they did that and my Crypt Fiends pulled them down first <3

    I think having ground mounts is enough for the races.

    Worgen will grow wings out of their backs so that they can fly.

    What would the Tauren racial flying mount be? The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy?
