    If it was like that, I'd hope for it to be possible to toggle on/off... I love my bird form, and it's my fav "mount" of all time. It's advantages are unmatched by anything. I am a sucker for smaller size mounts.
    I hope so!

    That would be nice, although it looks too similar to other mounts in game to really be all that unique. We'll see though, can't really tell much about animations, etc from a photo (unless there's some video somewhere that I haven't seen yet).

    Or if you can't be bothered with that, here's some GIFs with the animations. I disabled the particle effects since they're somewhat buggy and excessive in model viewer.

    Idle:

    Oh, and a closeup on the saddle:

    They're reusing the skeleton, that's nothing new, but you can clearly see that it is a mount.

    It's even named "stormcrowmount" in the gamefiles.

    Yep, idk who said it was a pet, definitely looks like a mount.

    Although I still think it would have made a cool looking battle pet

    This screenshot suggests the spell has been in live for a long time, and so that the existence of the spell being on PTR is not related to the datamined mount. It doesn't confirm or deny the possibility though. Nothing is sure, only speculations.

    Its still a mount.

    It's the druid fly form model, it has a sit, cause people can mount the druid in new form. Storm Crows is no where near related with anything in this expansion, and has nothing related with any profession. So, we will have 2 options.

    1- Druid Questline - Type Storm crow in wowhead, EVERYTHING the has stormcrow is druid related. The druid will shapeshift into the "mount"
    2- Blizzard Store mount - mehh, another cool mount that everyone will had cause they pay 20 dollars on it.

    Put this in blizzard store will be a shame.

    I know it's druid related, I even have a druid, I'm really not that retarded.. I'm just saying that it's clearly a mount. It could be a fancy new flight form skin similar to the new travel form, but one that other people can mount (just like that travel form glyph!).
    Honestly, it's all just guess work at this mount. We have no definite source, but anyone saying that it is a pet is just down right wrong or outright confirming that it's anything is wrong.

    This doesn't even look like the Phoenix mounts or the Firehawks and uses the DRUID FLIGHT FORM skeleton/models.

    People keep saying its been datamined as 'mount' but you do realize that the Flight Forms are technically mounts, right? Our flight forms have saddles too, you know.
    I'm voting for Druid quest chain. We need something new. :P That is way too small for someone to be riding on (picture someone riding on a druid's bird form).

    Think you are also forgetting that the so-called saddle on this new 'mount' is identical to all of the flight form saddles already in game (Nelf, Worgen and Tauren epic flight forms have them!). So merely the fact that people think SADDLE = MOUNT is stupid. Its the Flight Form model ... why would they reskin it for a mount?

    Well, coming from a druid. I will tell you right now it's using the skeleton of the druid forms.

    It could be a mount, it's probably a new bird form quest line.

    We don't know until it's announced.

    Dragon hawk MOUNTS have no saddles at all.

    Blizzard does not give a crap about Legs clipping, hands not reaching the "reins" if there even are any. Ever seen the Kor'Kron scorpion mount or the Amber scorpion mount? everything clips and floats because its a preexisting skeleton and model that was never intended as a mount. Blizzard made it a mount anyway. I see no reason why they would not do the same thing with the druid flight form skeleton.

    As pointed out a few times, it called "stormcrowmount" in the game files. They list things as mounts when they are mounts. Imagine that.
    3 hints to surviving MMO-C forums:
    1.) If you have an opinion, someone will say that it is wrong
    2.) If you have a source, there will be people who refuse to believe it
    3.) If you use logic, it will be largely ignored
