Idk why anybody says it's a store mount when the text insinuates it will be for RAF. But then again, people assume everything will be put in stores whenever a mount is previewed. All i know is that it's mount icon was datamined in wowhead a long time ago as "[PH] the Equinator"
Also, I still think Blizzard is right in no flying. I've played ebnough woW to trust their design choices, and they made a SHIT TON of content that involves exploration and timeless isle-type stuff. It'd all be undermined if we just flew over it so one patch without flying isnt a big deal, they just want us to actually play this content they worked so hard on. They already said flying mounts will double as ground mounts. It's not like flight is going away forever. We also get to do a questline instead of paying for it, so that'll be interesting as long as it's as engaging as the Rogue Legendary of Cata and not Wrathion's Grind-A-Thon
P.S. Those swords look nice. Not spectacular, but not exactly bland imo. Although looks are subjective, and not everything needs to look super awesome. I'm sure there's a neat concept behind the design choice for each WoD weapon.
