Legion - Arcane Hippogryph Mount
Legion adds a new hippogryph mount that goes nicely with Brightpaw and the Mystic Runesaber mount. There is no spell, item, or source yet, so we can't be sure if you will be able to obtain this mount.





Legion - Fel Core Hound Mount
The only existing Core Hound mount was a reward from the WoW 10th Anniversary celebration, but Legion adds a new Fel Core Hound. There is no spell, item, or source yet, so we can't be sure if you will be able to obtain this mount.

.Feedback received, they will be account wide xmogs in Legion, should feel rare and special. (Muffinus)
No changes planned for this event? Gone through 7 characters and have neither, and never got Flames from Rag :-(
We will continue to monitor the feedback (Muffinus)

PvP
what's the purpose of making people start over with prestige levels? Why not just continue gaining xp/prest after 50?
We want the decision to Prestige to be optional, but not trivial. If everyone does it, it's not nearly as "Prestigious." (WarcraftDevs)

Stay true to the idea of a tank being hit; make Taunt give penalties for not hitting tank, such as reduced damage dealt.
We don't think the fantasy of "I get hit" works well in PvP. Prefer to work on the "I'm on the front line" fantasy instead. (WarcraftDevs)

Curious how you landed on 0.1%/ilvl. What was the target goal? Is 0.2% or 0.5%/ilvl too much?
It's based on the full spectrum of item levels in the tier. (WarcraftDevs)

Looks fun!Will stat nullification(reallocation) activate upon entering pvp combat in open world or only in instance pvp?
Only in instanced PvP. (WarcraftDevs)

Transmogrification
Will Winter's Grasp and Flames of Ragnaros be xmogable enchants in Legion if you have them?
Yep! (WarcraftDevs)

Garrisons
Anything that can be passed on about the 'Garrison Resources' that MMO-champion brought up?
What's been datamined for Class Order Missions is very early dev. Expect quite a few changes between Garrisons and Order Halls. (WarcraftDevs)

Are bodyguards going to be in Legion? Please tell me Illona is a follower, somehow, some way! I would follow HER if I could!!!
Some followers will have the ability to be bodyguards, but it may function differently to what you're used to in WoD. (WarcraftDevs)

Ghostcrawler Tweets
Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

1) Game budgets are 1000x what they were in the NES days, so it's a big risk to have players not like your game. (OccupyGStreet)
2) Many games are so story based that devs and players want you to reach the end of the story. (OccupyGStreet)
3) The devs forget that getting better at something and finally mastering it is immensely satisfying. (OccupyGStreet)

    I could see the core hound being a meta mount for 5 mans or the first tier.
  1. Baneleaf's Avatar
    I predict those to be store mounts since we already got the collectors edition mounts.

    Fel Core Hound? Maybe from the Pre-Expansion event.

    It's like they didn't have the issue of Illona's speech thingy didn't take up the whole screen.

    From Greymane video;

    "Featuring Warcrafts, Worgen Greymane."

    Quality, Curse.

    I love that Fel Core Hound.... It looks way better than mine!

    Wait, Greymane is coming out this week? That can't be right, considering Lunara came out last week.

    He was added to the game, but isn't enabled yet:

    With Greymane's data being available in the most recent datamined patch, we would like to remind viewers that his release date on files is on January 12th 2016

    We fell for that one in WoD.

    I don't love new mounts, neither reusing of old models but there weren't many types of core hound yet so why not. Just hippogryphs we had plenty of already so nothing exciting about them.
  1. Arvandor's Avatar
    oh new mounts!

    not more happy to see new mounts..

    i will see really new infos.. an example.. when will we see infos for the new mog system with the new rules?

    THIS is the most important new thing in legion!

    Actually there are none such hippogryphs (with updated graphics) available to all players in game save for the Emerald Hippogryph one which you can get only via the recruit-a-friend and let's be honest...I've seen one maybe two people on my server with that mount. So the argument you make for the core hound is valid for this mount as well...if not more.

    Ehm, GC never worked for mmo-champion. He worked for Blizzard, the makers of one of the games mmo-champion covers.
