    Cool Invent a Mount!

    What type of mount would you like to see in WoW?


    My idea:

    Kron, the Bested Ogre-Chief

    Location:
    Rare loot from an ogre boss in Highmaul.

    Type:
    Land.

    Description:
    An ogre which carries you around in its arms. You essentially run around as the ogre while mounted.

    Notable features:
    The ogre has a large backpack on its back, giving you some extra storage.

    Notable animations:
    Will sometimes burp or try to eat you while standing still.
    Your character will look silly in the ogre's powerful grip as it charges ahead through the landscape; limp as a dead fish.

    "Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.

    "What do you mean?" he said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"

    "All of them at once," said Bilbo.

    Mine are rather uninspired. I'd want a flying Mekgineer's Chopper (enchanted, or some contrived rocket system attachment) or an updated reskin of the (Gnomish) flying machine, maybe a Dwarven version!

    Description: A minecart retrofitted with glider wings and boosters. Like the Sky Golem for herbalists, you can mine in this without dismounting.
    Notable: Sparks fly from the backwheels whenever you turn left or right.

    [Pandaren Hot-Air Balloon]
    Type: Air
    Crafted by: Leatherworkers. Requires a 100% drop from Cinderfall; [Cinderfall's Everburning Core], to keep the balloon inflated with hot air.

    Great ideas! I like this one in particular. Isn't it odd that we didn't get this mount in MoP?

    So how would it float quickly across the sky? A rocket attached to it?

    A devilsaur mount.

    Drops from where? I dunno, maybe any of the two devilsaur raid bosses we've had.

    What is it? A friggin' Devilsaur.

    It's been too long in waiting!

    The same way your turtle mounts move quickly across the ground, I guess.
    Maybe some animated wispy gusts of wind gliding past the balloon when moving, to indicate powerful currents.

    Yeah, could play with the themes of "Mists" from Pandaria.

    Do want. I just hate the fact that they have to shrink all cool big creatures down by so much when a player gets them. I get why they have to, but it's a shame.

    They could make it roughly the size of a mammoth. That'd be decently "large" in my book.

    I really dislike how small they made the skyscreamer. It should have been at LEAST as big as a proto drake

    A dragon mount that doesen't use either the Proto Drake, or the regular drake animations.

    OT: I'd live a caravan type mount, like the one players ride in the Eastern Plaguelands, that'd be kinda cool, I think. Perhaps a mount that works like a stall setting up my own business instead of posting it on the auction house is much more fun

    Spider mount, or at least something Nerubian looking. Until then I am happy with my Ultramarine Battle tank.

    an upgrade item to our mounts that puts us on roman style chariots and them as the "mount" its attached to.

    the main problem over why this (and caravan etc type mounts) isnt done is that it looks ridiculous on uneven ground and cliffs/edges.

    otherwise having Nespirah's giant Kin as a mount will suffice.

    why stand ontop of mailbox's when you can stand ontop of an entire city?

    I've seen video about mount from some WoW-Clone a couple of years ago where they had really amazing stuff.
    One mount was a kind of hovering throne, that one looked really impressive.

    Other than that, I'd take a spiked chariot.

    Gnomes would be a good idea, too:

    Spiderstyle mount.
    Eagle mount
    Ysera is green, and her skin glitters with countless emeralds for scales. Her physical form is ghostly, ethereal, like watching a living dream or vision. The Emerald Dream is a place where all living beings dream when sleeping. It is a place of where sentient beings have dreams of hope, and faith for a better tomorrow. Her eyes are always closed, although you can see her pupils move constantly below her eyelids as if watching many dreams at once.
