    Patch 4.2: New PvP Mounts for Rated Battlegrounds

    Patch 4.2: New PvP Mounts for Rated Battlegrounds
    For more information on Patch 4.2 mounts, check out our preview.



    Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    In order to best accommodate players under the unique play style of Rated Battlegrounds, we’ll be offering all-new PvP ground mounts -- the Vicious War Wolf (Horde) or Vicious War Steed (Alliance) -- in a unique way. If you want to sit your knickers on these sweet new rides come patch 4.2, Rage of the Firelands, you must earn achievements for winning either 75, 150, or 300 Rated Battlegrounds.

    One account-bound mount will be awarded for each of these achievements earned, so if you win 300 Rated Battlegrounds with a character, you’ll be afforded the opportunity to give that character and two of your alts each a wolf or steed. Since these mounts are tied to each achievement and not to your placement on the competitive ladder, they will be awarded instantly rather than at the end of each season as with Arena mounts. Your Rated Battleground wins tracked for these achievements are cumulative and are not reset with each season, so you can work toward the reward at your own pace.


    For those of you storming the front lines, protecting vital tactical positions, and keeping your teammates alive in Rated Battlegrounds, we wish you the best of luck in obtaining awards that befit your show of valor!

    It's mounts like that, that give me hope the new characters textures will be great. When/if they do them that is.

    I find it odd how the Horde mount has skulls on it, while the Alliance one has severed troll, orc and undead heads on it... I thought the Horde were the savage ones... You sick Alliance bastards. =P

    I am actually quite disappointed with the Alliance mounts comparatively. The wolves look so much better, they look nice and brand new, meanwhile the horses look like the same thing again. Don't get me wrong though, they still look good, I just think the Horde came out ahead again this time with the monts. The horses need to be bulked up a lot and made fuller, their size is otherwise quite wimpy, especially on larger classes, so anything above Humans.

    I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure this is subject to Faction conversion. Considering the Horde and Alliance symbols and all.
    -Retribution, the path of the protector or mender brought to it's natural conclusion; destroying evil before the weak need to be shielded from it, and before it can wound the innocent.

    you must earn achievements for winning either 75, 150, or 300 Rated Battlegrounds.
    Epic fail, every single person that can faceroll to 1500 in rated bgs will have one of these. What's the point? Ugh, another dumb change that makes Rated BGs a complete joke. Why didn't they at least put a rating requirement on them like the weapons. 2200, 2400, SOMETHING. There is no accomplishment in this game. It's just a fucking joke.

    Rated BGs never took any skill...it's just a huge cluster f*ck with more balancing issues than Arenas has.
