Mounts and Items Removed in 4.0.3

Swift Zulian Tiger
Zul'Gurub is changing from a raid to a leveling zone in 4.0.3, and this mount will no longer be obtainable.

Swift Razzashi Raptor
This mount will also no longer be obtainable after the change to Zul'Gurub.

Razzashi Hatchling
With the change to Zul'Gurub this non-combat pet will no longer be obtainable.

Tome of Polymorph: Turtle Mage
This tome will continue to be available through other means.

Crusader's White/Black Warhorse and Swift Alliance Steed/Swift Horde Wolf
As the attempt-based tribute system is being removed from Heroic Trial of the Crusader, the Argent Crusade Tribute Chest will no longer spawn, and these mounts will no longer be obtainable

Reins of the Blue Drake
This mount will once again be available from defeating 10-player Malygos without needing to use the Dungeon Finder. The Reins of the Azure Drake will only be available on 25-player Malygos.

Mimiron's Head
This mount will change to be a very low drop chance when defeating 25-player Yogg'Saron with no Keepers assisting you

This mount will change to be a very low drop chance when defeating Heroic 25-player Lich King

Although we have no current plans to introduce new ways to obtain the Zul'Gurub mounts, pets, and the tribute mounts, they may return should we find a place where they fit in the future.

Tier 11 Models - Death Knight
The Tier 11 model for the Death Knight is now available.

TiVo Alert: Cataclysm TV Spot Debuts 10/17
Now I guess that explains why the files are encrypted.

    DK Tier 11 is by far the coolest looking set yet.

    Oh look, an excuse to watch football. How're the Vikings doing this season? Is Moss sticking around or was that just a one-week thing?

    edit: also, kinda surprised about the Razzashi Hatchling pet.... I figured that there'd be other raptors put into the leveling area that lowbies could kill, and they'd have the low droprate chance of the pet. But removal altogether? Makes me glad I managed to get a hold of the one I got.

    Oh god i'm glad i got the Zulian Tiger already.

    Don't tell me they are STILL keeping the stupid Rusted/Ironbound drakes, along with the ICC ones (I forget the names). Unless I missed it in another post, these need to be removed.

    Very nice looking set. The Helm looks a little weird, but you can always turn that off.

    And MrKnubbles, the Mage set beats this one, hands down.

    These new tier sets look awesome! Except maybe the warlock one :x

    Makes sense to change the droprate. Will be like the Ashes of Alar then.

    Otherwise we would see every noob and his mother with mimirons head etc.

    So, about the only interesting thing at Blizzcon, the first look at Cataclysm's cinematic, is being aired before Blizzcon. Why the hell am I going?

    A "The commercial will feature the first look at cinematic footage from Cataclysm" isn't the whole Cinematic now, is it?
