Patch 4.3 Spectral Gryphon and Wyvern Mounts
It looks like we even have a saturday news post this week, hurray! Along with the legendary dagger screenshot released yesterday, it seems that the official korean website released 2 extra screenshots of new spectral flying mounts.

There's no information on where players will be able to get them but it wouldn't be surprising to see them as rewards of the new Darkmoon Faire or any of the new features introduced with Patch 4.3. Thanks to annoyingmoose for his forum post about these mounts.

Well of Eternity - Updated Preview
The Patch 4.3 Dungeons Preview, Part Two: Well of Eternity has been updated with five new screenshots.

    I really hope these are just a first draft mount to test the depth of how they will look in game, because to be honest I would much prefer them to have saddles and reigns and make them look more domesticated then just some lame looking re-skins of wild Gryphons and Wyverns

    If you have time to work on such mounts, I hope someday there will be a warlock / paladin flying mount. *hope*

    Spectral Gryphon looks okay, but I doubt I'll see lots of people riding that ghostly Manticore.

Oh and void storage and gear change too.

    If these people have such a problem (one even mentioned "this piece of shit game") then leave and be done with it.
    Quoting this because logic gets lost easily in MMO Champ news posts.

    Wow, Resto Shaman is sure getting the short end of the stick here.
    Priest & Druid 4pc is a no-thought-required throughput bonus. Paladin's is similar; its flat but on a 1 minute cooldown. Kinda crappy it being tied to a cooldown.

    The resto shaman? Tied to a 2 minute cooldown on an ability that we try to keep in our back pocket for when the shit really hits the fan. 30% haste is nice and all, but its just sad when our 4 pc is so sad.

    I've been healing as a resto shaman since BC and I have to say this looks like the worst bonus ever. I know they wanted to tie this to one of our new cata spells. Fine! <cough>Healing Rain<cough>

    Did you not see all of the artwork from the upcoming dungeons? It is gorgeous.

    Set it on fire and it would sell like hotcakes.

    The Wyvern skin is still ugly as sin.
    Even on fire.

    Nothing well ever be as ugly as the frostwyrm mounts if you ask me, and by saying so I've just rattled the cage, since most people thinks that they are amazing, which I'll never understand, mainly because they look nothing like frostwyrms. It's all subjective.

    Hopefully, Azshara has a unique model, and the Night Elf pictured isn't her or is a placeholder. She deserves to be discernable from the 'rifraff'.

    I don't see why she should stand out that much as to get a whole new model.
    Nice textures and everything like Thrall did but not completely new. That'd stretch it a little too much for a small dungeon boss.
    Considering she was the Queen of the elves and said to be the most beautiful, she needs *something* to not just be 'yet another night elf' in a dungeon that should have a few, at least before they (potentially) turn into satyrs.
    Her current (read: naga) form will definitely be interesting when they reveal it.
