    Orcs should have more iconic ground mounts as well to be honest. I want a wild hog. Something you can ride and eat!

    I speculate that Giant Boars would be Ogre's mount. That or a spider, or a devilsaur. or a corehound!

    Why does there need to be an equivalent to everything and everyone else, whether it be class, race, faction, etc.?

    Well, like you mentioned already yourself...

    What would we get:

    Humans - ???
    Dwarfs - Gryphon
    Gnomes - Copters
    Night Elfs - Owls
    Draenei - ???
    Worgen - ???


    Orcs - Wyvern

    Tauren - ???
    Blood Elfs - Dragonhawk
    Undead - Bat
    Goblin - Rocket

    Pandaren - Kite

    It's not an equivalent. It's just that human, the main force of the Alliance, is piggy back riding on Wildhammer's mount.

    It's not that.... It is, because Dwarfs excelled in the skills of taming the animals to the point of using them as flying mounts. Hence why the Flight masters are usually also Dwarfs.

    I would love to see Undead riding Gargoyles or actually made skeletal Gryphon to be Undead's mount since bats belong to the Troll. Tauren should ride Windserpent. And don't forget Terrorwings! Terrorwing can be something for Trolls to ride. Draenei should use a space pod or nether ray. I would love to see Worgen to ride on something cursed as well.

    troll is bat, tauren is wyvern. the tauren knew the wyvern for much longer than the orcs, and they consider them sacred. I'd say it's the orcs that lack a cultural flying mount of their own, so they started using the wyverns of the tauren, just like humans ride gryphons.

    trolls and the undead choose the bat as their mounts in a parallel fashion, not related to each other.

    I'm pretty sure Humans and Dwarves share their mount (Gryphon) just like Orcs and Tauren do (Wyvern). So the iconic flying mount for Humans is actually Gryphon, just how it is in-game.

    Exactly my point.

    Actually Orcs once enslaved Dragons; The Dragonmaw clan. And coming from Outland, they might one time used Nether Ray or maybe even Sporebat :P

    Exactly my point.
    If you play wc3, the Tauren didn't use Wyvern. Wyverns made kind of a pact with Orcs after a campaign where Orcs saved Wyverns. Hence if you play wc3, the Windriders are orcs.

    The sentient Wyverns of Kalimdor were eager to ally themselves with the Shamanistic Horde. Impressed by the Orcs' commitment to honor and victory, the Wyverns allowed the Orcs to ride them into combat against those who would disturb the tranquility of Kalimdor and its denizens



    MORE!

    When Thrall first arrived on Kalimdore Cairne suggested enlisting the aid of the wyverns who dwelt nearby. Upon reaching their nesting grounds, the two leaders discovered that a band of harpies had captured and enslaved the wyverns. Encountering fierce local resistance, a force led by Thrall and Cairne fought their way to they harpies' lair and slaughtered the vile bird-women, freeing the wyverns.[2] The sentient wyverns of Kalimdor were eager to ally themselves with the shamanistic horde. Impressed by the orcs' commitment to honor and victory, the wyverns allowed the orcs to ride them into combat against those who would disturb the tranquility of Kalimdor and its denizens. The wyverns, who share a common ancestry with both dragons and gryphons, use their powerful claws and razor-like fangs against both airborne attackers and ground troops, while their riders may hurl envenomed spears at the enemy.

    Humans are boring, and that's why they shouldn't have any special mount.

    had to edit my post. since I accidentally named goblins twice.
    I stuck with the bats for Undead, since those are the zone mounts there. Bats imo fit their theme better than the troll theme. You find them in caves and catacombs, and that applies to the Undead better I think. Terrorwing, yeah, that's a choice. Trolls love prehistoric animals. The Isle of giants has flyers. Let's use those...
    Skeletal Gryphon. That's essentially the Death Knight Flyer.
    Wind Serpents for Tauren, okay makes sense, they are home in the Barrens.
    Now we still need mounts for Humans, Draenei and Worgen. The corresponding starter zones have very little to offer.
    Nothing for Worgen and Humans, Moth's for Draenei

    I think dinos would suit trolls better, seeing the Zandalari are using pterrorwing mounts in the Isle of Thunder. Undead can keep the smelly bats.

    Draenei are from the Outland and I actually love to see some sort of Naaru powered vehicle for Draenei. Holy Magic Hovercraft or something.

    agreed..... The bats have nothing to do with trolls.. They just used them for the bat being a horde trait, and not a troll trait, when they added the troll druids. Alliance has the Eagle shape, Horde has the Bat shape.

    Eagles could be used as Human flyers though.

    Humans get a helm that allows them to fly thanks to the power of their own self entitlement.
    The common man is like a worm in the gut of a corpse, trapped inside a prison of cold flesh, helpless and uncaring, unaware even of the inevitability of its own doom.
