    I fully expect we will get a duplicate of the Dragon Riding mounts that functions like a normal flying mount.

    And NOW they are nerfing Soar to the ground. Seems Bobby saw WoW players were starting to have fun again...

    Fuck ass Blizzard.
    Dragonridign and the Dragonriding mounts are and will only be available in the Dragon Isles. The Soar nerf further affirms this.

    Turning it into normal mount means we can use it elsewhere and in the expansion after Dragonflight, unlike the Dragonriding mounts.

    But honestly, they prolly just removed that stuff because they either want to hide their "surprise 5th dragonflight mount that you can unlock with the campaign that's hidden and not playable on alpha" or simply not needed for the mount (the awesome sitting animation for example, no other mount can do that so there is sadly no reason to have it on the player mount).
    The mount had dragonriding animations.

    They remove every single on of them, and replaced them with normal flying (swimming) animations, turning it into normal mount.

    That appears like such a strange technical limitation when I would assume its just the matter of slapping on a very generic animation to DR mounts.
    Considerign the amount of spaghetti code the game, I have no doubt it is sincerely technically impossible for one mount have two different flight behaviours, even more so if/when normal flying is unlocked for Dragon Isles.

    Honestly, the 5th dragon debacle clearly highlights why datamining is fucking toxic to WoW.

    Alpha is pretty well enjoyed and liked, someone datamines a new dragonriding dragon. People love it, and then it gets removed, despite Blizz never mentioning this dragon or confirming its existence.

    Maybe we need to get rid of datamining if the fanbase acts like this over the smallest things?

    some of my own ideas, basically add deeper customization like the mount is getting.

    More colors, each prime dragonflight color(s) should be represented on both main and secondary and maybe even belly color.

    Anyone hyping themselves up over an unannounced 5th dragonriding dragon when Blizzard hasn't said anything about it (and, like I said, even in news posts about it within the last day or two, still talking about only four) only have themselves to blame for any disappointment.

    And again, I'd expect something in future patches anyway. We've seen there's some patch content in the files already. More dragons seems likely.

    Aka you're just talking out your butt, because you don't actually know anything about any of what you just said.

    The HFC LFR leather set actually looks good, but LFR is too much of a mental and physical pain to do so I never bothered to get it.

    But the thing is, the serpent dragon does exist in the data. There is no need to "confirm its existence" if it's there lol. It's prolly just stuff that's supposed to be hidden though, similiar to the slime kitty this season, or the dark ranger stuff.

    Even the recent bluepost said " throughout your leveling experience, you’ll earn four different Dragon Isles Drakes". That doesn't mean we won't get any further dragonriding mounts via max level content. Actually, the gladiator mount is supposed to be usable for dragonriding aswell so that's already another confirmation that we will get more than these 4. And again, the serpent mount with the same amount of customization as the other ones currently have was already datamined. It exists, it looks good, it's not a placeholder, and we will get it. It's just something that prolly was supposed to be encrypted.

    So a thread with 2 lines now counts as "ideas"? Is this the new mmo champion? "I don't get enough attention people! Please read my thread, I need to post this for validation!"

    Don't worry, they'll still blame Blizzard for it. Headcanon = fact. When Blizzard doesn't work with your headcanon? It's blizzard at fault!

    That's this topic summarized.

    In other news, the velocidrake currently has one more colour tint than the protodrake which gives me hope that we won't be stuck with "just six colours per mount". More variation is always good, imo we should get the same tints that dracthyr currently have for our drakes!

    It's a functional and very beautiful mount that people clearly want, whatever Blizzards intention is with it having people talk about it is the only real way to get them to implement it sooner or later.

    God forbid people might be upset that something that good looking, with that much effort put into it, might get scrapped.

    Aah yes. Data mjning is a conspiracy to get people to talk about it. Thanks for proving my point that headcanon failures will be blamed on Blizzard.

    I don't know where the sudden idea that the mount is scrapped comes from? It was obviously either end game or patch content (and both is currently not available on the alpha). Stop spreading panic and negative mood ffs.

    Or it's nothing. It was a test, did not work, was never meant to be added or seen and you are making mountains out of molehills. Panic? because a mount no one ever promised us or even talked about might not be added if it turns out it cannot work and you just saw it cause you checked datamining? Negative mood? Is negative mood telling people something maybe was not meant to be in game and NOT talking about your fantasies of future content and how everyone who disagrees is bad for it? The cognitive dissonance is too much. Solipsism really is the religion of the internet age.

    Dude, it's an already finished HD mount with lots of dragonriding customizations available and in the database. They are obviously not scrapping it.

    You cannot scrap something that isn't on the table . . .

    It is in the game files and done (so no placeholder stuff) lol. When was the last time they scrapped a mount that wasn't a recolour? WoD? Don't be stupid.

    I don't know what that's supposed to be mean.

    There is a mount in the game files.
    From the looks of it, its on the same lvl of doneness as the other mounts.
    It's not mentioned anywhere officially and they recently removed most of its animation set.
    It looks cool.
    People want it.

    It could be potentially scrapped, how can we communicate to Blizzard that that shouldn't happen? By telling Blizzard that we want it.
    How do we do that? By talking about it.

    How is that conspiratorial?

    ??? They have scrapped entire zones that are in the files with extensive detail. They've had mounts stay in the data for years before they find a use for them.
