Armored Frostwyrm Mounts (Possible Spoilers)
The latest PTR build added a new type of mount to the game, the Armored Frostwyrm Mounts.

Warning, Speculation here. Nothing is confirmed (Also, quests spoilers)
We don't really have any details on these mounts for the moment, but after some digging in the game files and on PTR servers it seems that one of these mounts is already active under the name of Armored Frostbrood Vanquisher (MOUNT) (BLUE).
Two spells are also named after this mount : Frostbrood Vanquisher and Frostbrood Vanquisher Flight.
The only Vanquishers we know are the Wyrmrest Vanquisher used in the Wyrmrest Temple daily quests. The existing Frostbrood Vanquisher spells aren't really proper mount spells and at this point nothing says that we will be able to learn them like normal mounts, even if it wouldn't be very surprising to see a new set of flying mount as a reward for Glory of the Icecrown Raider (25 player) (Objectives and rewards are obviously placeholders at this point)
Things get interesting when you look at quests introduced with this build especially one of them ...
Respite for a Tormented Soul
Deliver Sindragosa's Essence to Wyrmrest Temple in Dragonblight.
Take this Life Crystal, and have your companions take one as well. It contains potent energies from the verdant Dragonshrine in Dragonblight, and it was my own secret to resisting the dark magics of this place for so long. When you face Sindragosa, battle her until she is weakened, and then have your companions use these Crystals to coax out the essence that is dormant within her. If you then defeat her, you should be able to recover it and return it to Wyrmrest Temple in Dragonblight.
I'm not going to jump to conclusions here, but it looks like the latest build added a way to control Frostbrood wyrms and a quest to preserve Sindragosa's Essence at the same time? I'm also pretty sure that the Icecrown Citadel doesn't have an elevator with a "Frozen Throne" button.
We'll probably learn more about this in the next builds, stay tuned and keep in mind that at this point it's just speculation.
