Heart of the Aspects
Just like its pet counterpart, the drop location of the Heart of the Aspects is unknown, but it looks pretty awesome. It is most likely linked to the Chromatic Champion achievement in higher difficulties of the Madness of Deathwing encounter.

Raid Mounts - Reins of the Blazing Drake / Life-Binder's Handmaiden
Life-Binder's Handmaiden drops from Madness of Deathwing (last encounter of the Dragon Soul raid) in Heroic Mode. People defeating Madness of Deathwing in normal mode will be rewarded with Reins of the Blazing Drake.

Darkmoon Faire Mounts - Dancing Bear and Swift Forest Strider
Two mounts are available at the Darkmoon Faire for 180 x Darkmoon Prize Ticket, the Darkmoon Dancing Bear and the Swift Forest Strider.

Worgen Racial Mounts
Worgens finally get their racial mounts, the Swift Mountain Horse and Mountain Horse! Other races can also buy them if they're Exalted with Gilneas, the vendor can be found in Darnassus and as far as I know only two colors are available: Brown for the Mountain Horse, Black for the Swift Mountain Horse.

Gladiators of the Arena Season 10 will be rewarded with a shiny Ruthless Gladiator's Twilight Drake.

WoW TCG - Swift Shorestrider, Corrupted Hippogryph, White Riding Camel
