Note that some elements are still placeholder (including the UI), but we're still interested in any early feedback you have on this feature. We'll be rolling out additional pieces of Azerite Armor for testing as the Alpha continues.

    Wonder if this build fixes some of the issues that were around in the last one.

    What the fuck are those mounts and also voice chat.

    Edit: Oh well they just updated the models.
    Do you guys think they working on racial flying mounts or sumthing? I mean, Teldrassil and Undercity going down - Forsaken Bat and Nelf hippogriff coming up?
    Maybe that bad flammy doggie can sprout wings, like the hearthsteed or the Suramar kitty cats mounts for example.

    And it looks like an updated model for the original Hippogryph mount instead of the new ones they use. Thats nice I always prefered the original armoured ones over the newer ones.

    That other one looks like it has Dark Iron Dwarf armour but I thought they were getting that mini one-headed corehound mount?

    Did they change the Dark Iron mount or is that something else?

    It's obviously DI themed, so IDK. Gotta say it looks pretty amazing and I actually liked the other one.

    Azerite traits are still shit ...
  1. Meat Rubbing Specialist's Avatar
    Looks like they changed the DI mount.

    Azerite is looking great though. It's like a bunch of both Artifact Major Traits and Tier Bonuses. Look forward to more coming out and to see if different Raid tiers will add Azerite Perks that are different to change things up.

    I'm going to assume that the darkhound mount is the new Dark Iron racial mount since the small, single-headed core hound mount was so widely reviled by so many people. I honestly think it's pretty damn cool design, all things said; definitely makes me want to race change even more. Plus, it makes a lot more sense than the previous one, given the fact that the Dark Iron actively raise darkhounds, whereas they were only geographically adjacent to Molten Core and never actually used its native beasts as mounts or pets.

    well, blizzard went full lazy with those Old God Projections

    Not sure I like seeing yet ANOTHER model fall victim to the tired old Wolf animation and posture... Darkhounds (rune dogs) atm, have unique animations. Those models look like they'll just use the wolf/hyena animations...

    Projections of known Old gods looking exactly as what they're supposed to be in an Alpha absolutely crammed with new/updated models = lazy.

    Does this mean anyone can get that mount by just doing an achievement? Seems to me it should be a rare drop. Not that I won’t be doing that the first chance I get lol

    That Dark Iron theme mount is probably the Dark Irons racial vicious saddle mount.
