    Which is also the 5th boss in the raid.
    Does this mean we don't actually kill Galakras?

    But Al'ar is a phoenix hence why it's called "Ashes of Al'ar"!

    Doesn't matter. Do want! Even though i hate proto drakes. *+1 mount list*

    Seems that way. Jaina says "The proto-drake has fallen" and Lor'themar says "Down goes the Dragon".

    My guess is it just falls down at the end of the fight and is weakened enough to be subdued.

    Well Mimiron is more a mechanical unit than something else. At least for me. Btw. time to farm Yogg 25 - 0 solo as a Mage!

    You smashed Mimiron's thing into 3 pieces, and took his head. Any damage done can also simply be repaired, as it was a machine to begin with. As mentioned Phoenixes are reborn from their ashes, and you took Al'ar's ashes from Kael'thas.

    But most other mounts you don't take, just you take their children/other mounts. Like when you took down the Twilight Drakes and Ultraxion, you took another Twilight Harbinger after you had killed the master. Or the frost drake you took after you beat Sindragosa and the Lich King.

    And taken for your own I guess wonder what happens to its old master in the raid?

    Well. Atleast it's better than a different colored Albino Drake.

    Spiffy, but I'm more curious as to the war wolf that is rewarded for defeating Garrosh on normal prior to next raid tier.

    This will be the second wolf mount that Alliance can get in 5.4, the other being the wolf that spawns on Darkmoon Island (can drop a mount, battle pet and fist weapon transmog).

    But who cares about this mount when you have this achievement?

    I'm not trying to be an ass at all but this is basically done for EVERY raid "achievement" mount besides the Black/Plagued Proto and the rare drop ones (Flametalon, B12 Experiment, Ashes of Alar and so on). I also don't think the "nerfs" reallly matter when you can go back to this content at 90 and do them to get the mount. I am kinda thinking it's something you just have to except by now

    Probably there will be a few of those as always story wise so we get a mail with it + saying there are remains from the Siege and we earned it.

    How about you be quiet for a moment, read up on a few things, learn to see the bigger picture and THEN come back to this thread? Hm?

    Look at it, it's just not a reskin - look at the armor for example.

    Update! Looks like this will be the first Glory of the raider achieve that will -not- require heroic mode kills at all.

    I'm not sure how much sense mounts need to make in lore, I mean, even if we don't kill Galakras, you're going to have a hard time selling me how it suddenly split into 25 versions of itself.

    Huh, interesting - not sure how I feel about the meta achievement not only not requiring heroic kills, but also not requiring even normal ones, flexiraid being enough - I mean, I can see why, it's promoting blizzards new pet project, but part of it rubs me the wrong way, and this is from someone who hasn't got either of the other 2 meta mounts this expansion, so it's not really about wanting to be a special snowflake before anyone ties throwing out that tired old drivel.

    Curious as to what the Garrosh mount will be though, they'll have a hard time topping Invincible, Mimiron's head and Ragnaros' Firehawk - has anything interesting been datamined that it could be?

    Garrosh won't drop the Fey Dragon, it makes zero sense.

    As for completing Glory in Flex mode, not sure that is the right direction to go in, the single achievements maybe but removing the heroic kills is a bad move imo.
