So someone found on the PTR a bunch of new mounts relating to the Call of the Scarab micro-holiday in Silithus!

No one knows if they will be only usable in the holiday or as full mount yet sadly. I hope they are full mounts!

Seems I'm late to the part but what ever, they need their own thread instead of being shoved into a pet thread.

I saw the post on WoWhead. I can't describe how hard I am crossing my fingers for them to be a permanent mount addition. As someone who went through the soul-murdering experience of getting the archaeology Ultramarine mount and who has been hoping for updates to the silithid models since forever, I need that new black one more than anything.

EDIT: Just noticed the 'Legacy' tag on the black one. Not a fan of that at all. I hope that it means it'll be like some kind of pre-BfA one time available mount and legacy points to it no longer being available after that event passes, not that it's something given out to Scarab Lords 13 or so years after they got their original mount. That would stink.

Giving people a new limited time Black Qiraji Battle Tank mount to pursue would probably be far more intriguing than just randomly giving it to Scarab Lords and telling new players that they're shit out of luck. :P

Edity edit v2:
According to someone in the MMO-Champion thread, there was a claim that Scarab Lords had this automatically added to their mount tab.

If true..

I hope it's a case of people with original get it automatically but everyone else can still get it. But that's still retarded.

They have their legendary mounts as a sign of accomplishment back then. Why get a brand new mount ... ANOTHER mount exclusive to like, 20 people.... now?

The really sucky thing is that Scarab Lord wasn’t even a mark of personal accomplishment. Players required a lot of help to get it and not everyone who helped them get there could get their own before the deadline ended. Basically the efforts of many to elevate a lucky few.

I did do the chain on my own later and really loved it, though. No black silithid at the end but I think it was one of the most fun chains that Blizzard ever produced. It’s a shame it was erased.

Ofc it could also be a case of these are temp mounts only usable during the holiday, so those with the original black ones get a black one to use during the holiday. But that's be even more of a shame. :/

It would be a shame but I get the feeling this might be the case....like the Brooms and the ones that drop in AQ (only usable in AQ) kinda deal.

If it was AQ only I'd be ok with it as it still counts to my mount count XD

Also make brooms mounts already my golly gosh!

And also, there were plenty of people that sold their accounts, as well as people that more or less cheesed it during WoTLK with the new servers that didn't yet automatically have their gates open.

I think it's a waste to just plop it into their laps instead of giving players now a new chance to get a time-limited Black Qiraji tank that the original Scarab Lords are in no way entitled to.

Seems it's confirmed that the blue and red new qiraji mounts will only be mountable during Call of the Scarab.

The black one will probably be given to Scarab Lords automatically.

Meh..

I think they should open up for the option to do the opening of Aq Gates as an optional quest linie you could take. It should give you a reasonable time to get the ressources together and open the Gates your self. It would be a costly and time consuming thing to do but I feel ppl should get the option. Blizzard need to incorperate some sandbox into their game :).

The reason that they don't is because a lot of the pieces of the original questline aren't in game anymore. Azuregos, Stewvul, the Isle of Dread and the Chimaeroks on it, Meridith the Mermaiden, etc.

As I said in the other PTR thread they should at least make the existing bug mounts be zone wide instead of raid restricted as a compromise.

Couldn't they just make it like theramore. . A person you talk to to get "timewarped " into a place where the old zones are?

I think most of the old world was dismantled during Cataclysm, because it wasn't very well put-together to begin with. Zones preCata never really lined up perfectly, etc. So, unlike Theramore, Blasted Lands and Silithus, I don't think it's as simple as allowing access to an old phase. They could still put in the time and add all the quests back in but it would require a fair bit of work. I'd love it if they did it, but I don't expect it's going to happen. I did the quest chain prior to Cata and thought it was fantastic. Epic adventure and some very funny bits.

I guess they could open for it on the classic servers. I heard rumors that classic is going to work like diablo. You have 1 year to get the achivements you want then it resets but allowing your main charecter to keep what you get...rumors have it that each year will have special rewards like outfits etc.

Blizz never said anything about what will be in Classic servers, but I highly doubt they will add rewards that'll be carried over to Live WoW.
