    Netherrays are already a obtanaible as mounts and the Orcs already have a racial mount, the Trolls learned to use the Skyscreamer as mounts as shown in MoP but only the Zandalari trolls, also the main troll mounts are the Bats, and the Carrionbirds have nothing to do with Worgens, it would be even easier to put a giant Raven as the worgen mount (Gilneas have a lot of ravens not Carrion Birds, also the Carrion Birds are often used by the Twillight Hammer as mounts)

    You're right about Mammoths, i don't know why i added them in the list, well... i got the mounts so much time ago that i forgot about that, and yes i know the Imperial Quilen from MoP collectors and i pointed it out in the text above the image, but i wanted a normal Quilen (a ground mount) and not a F-ugly Flying Quilen mount

    I don't see what the problem is. A lot of races share iconic flying mounts.

    Human & Dwarves - Gryphons
    Night Elves - Hippogryphs
    Gnomes & Dwarves - Gyrocopters

    Orcs & Tauren - Wyverns
    Trolls & Forsaken - Bats
    Blood Elves - Dragonhawks

    Here a really small list of mechanical objects that should be mounts:

    Gnomish Planes: Why don't we have these as mounts?!


    Hot Air Balloon: there are 2 differents models, the Goblin Balloon and the Pandaren (the picture is the pandaren model)


    Hotrod: A quest mount in the goblin starting zone, it even have a radio!


    Mechano-Tank: Used by many Gnomes and Leaper Gnomes as mounts, we have a flying robot with claws and lasers as mount, a robotic birds as mounts..., so you can give us a robo-spider with lasers as mount!

    Huh? Who cares for race-specific mounts, the first drake you get and puff griffon will never see light again

    A lot of people do not like boring Drake mounts. Do you know what's more boring than human in a fantasy setting? Dragons.

    Just throw some poor creature into your piss/poop canal in SW.....I'm sure when you pull it out it will be an "iconic" Alliance mount.

    Owls were never intended for use as a mount by the Night Elves, they served as scouts and companions to huntresses and still do. hippogryphs are a Night Elven aspect, not human.
    If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

    Turns out when you're allied with Red Dragons, they tend to get pissy if you force them into servitude. Who knew? :/

    You should check out old Blizzard News prior the launch of WC3; Reign of Chaos, a lot of things get unreleased; Owl-riding Priestess of the Moon, Anti-Paladin, mountless Death Knight, Crusader hero, Ranger hero class with Swift aura, Far Seer has spells that change own units into spirit wolves, etc.

    In the alpha-build of Warcraft III, Priestesses of the Moon rode giant owls into battle[4]. Flying heroes were later removed from the game, and the Priestess was instead given a white saber cat.

    You do know that he is talking about NEWER lore so that humans can get their own flying mount, just like prior to MOP, they were nothing about the Mogu, Hozen etc. He is not referring to Orc's.

    Do people even read before quotng? He was referring that Blizzard should continue to expand the lore for humans as they did with the Orcs.

    Ok... flying horse. With the lion symbol stamped on it's butt like a My Little Pony.

    It's not going to be "iconic" if you just shoehorn it in for the sake of having a race-specific mount.

    Gryphons are fine, and iconic.

    For dwarves. This thread is about human's. And the op clearly stated about exploring lore so that means not shoehorning anything.
