New mounts in 5.3

Unread post by Wain » Tue May 21, 2013 10:04 pm

We haven't got Warcraft Mounts updated quite yet, so here's a quick run-down on what's new for mounts in 5.3:

EDIT: Warcraft Mounts is now updated!

As of patch day, we only know of three obtainable mounts, two of which overlap:


The Armored Blue Dragonhawk and Armored Red Dragonhawk are the Alliance and Horde equivalents for obtaining the achievement Mount Parade/Mount Parade, for having 200 mounts on any single toon. Being sombre colours, they may not stand out quite as much as the original Blue Dragonhawk, but both are quite pretty and detailed:

The Brawler's Burly Mushan Beast is the second mushan mount available to players, and may be purchased once you reach Rank 10 with the Brawler's Guild.

Coming soon, there's the Hearthsteed, which is believed to come from taking part in the beta testing of Blizzard's new Hearthstone card game. However final details have not been released yet. Also not revealed is the colour of the mount, hence no image yet. There are blue and red versions in the database.


This patch we're also anticipating the release of the colour-changing Enchanted Fey Dragon and the savage Armored Bloodwing mounts. There's been a lot of speculation as to what their sources might be, but nothing has been revealed yet. When I was shopping at the Blizzard Store recently, a bug string popped up at one point that contained the text "armoredbloodwing", so they're presumably considering making it a Store mount.

I'd buy that dragon if it's a store mount. I'll never see the other ones.

Crap! No! I have no idea why it says that. We actually have no idea if there's a faction basis or not!

I'll try to get it fixed asap :)

I'm telling you, at least the bat is from the BlizzStore 100%. A guy in the know confirmed it on another forum.

Mania fixed it, so it should no longer say Horde-only. Thanks for finding that. :) It was a bug with mounts that had no faction set at all.

I don't recall him saying anything about the fey dragon, though it might be store too. No date either.

He's not my friend most definitely. He's a major d-bag, happens to know stuff that often has been confirmed later, probably some insider sources. He's Leviathon on Scrolls of Lore, check it out. I don't like him, but I gotta give him credit for what he knew.
