Prestigious Royal Courser

#1 Unread post by Krysteena » Thu Sep 28, 2017 9:10 am

On Antorus, while hopping about for the WQs, I noticed someone on what looked like the Prestigious Royal Courser, which essentially looks like the Lucid Nightmare with armour.

However I've done some research, and from what I can see, you can't actually get that mount. I don't know, though, if the sites I'm looking at are just out of date, and it is possible to get? From what I can tell, both the Royal and Midnight courses haven't been added yet, but I have definitely seen someone on the Royal one. Can you actually get the royal variant in-game? I'm presuming you can, but I can't find any links as to how.

If I had to guess, it would be a prestige rank 21 reward, but, again, I can't find any links that go past prestige 18 :')

I assume you mean this one?

That has me intrigued!

As far as I'm aware it hasn't been added yet. There are more ranks coming but last time I checked they were only up on the PTR and it wasn't obvious what the rewards would be.

Is it possible it was of the other colors, but affected by auras or lighting? Maybe not, but I had to ask :) Otherwise I'm really curious where they got it. If you see it again, please see if you can get their name and realm so we can check their Armory :)

Yeah, that one! I only really noticed because I was on my Lucid Nightmare and noticed that the other looked just like it, but with armour. I didn't have time to grab any names or anything, but I can definitely keep an eye out to see if I spot them again :)

The only other one I can think it would have been would be the azure one, and it was something funky with the lighting. Again, I'll keep an eye out for the player. They were a Tauren, but that's basically all I can remember. It was a case of 'oh, pretty mount' and it wasn't till they were gone I realised what mount it looked like :lol:

My first thought was that it could be a lighting issue. Some areas do end up giving you a sort of puple-ish color. The area around the rare that spawns east of the Shattered Fields teleport in Krokuun, for example, gives my characters a purplish hue, similar to the one you get fighting the sisters in ToS.

More ranks? Nice.

I'm so close to my rank 8. I think that's the Prestigious Ivory Courser?

Prestige rank 8 + 50 levels is the Ivory, yeah :)

And I'm pretty sure it wasn't a lighting thing bc the Lucid Nightmare looked exactly the same as it always did, and the mount generally was exactly like the LN beneath it. If it was a lighting thing, then even if they were two different colours, they wouldn't (?) have looked exactly the same. I am yet to see it come up again, though. Unless it is a reward for 21 ranks, but, considering I'm not even at the Bronze one yet, I can't check :lol:

I don't have an active wow sub currently and even so I don't pvp. However, I searched for Prestigious Royal Courser and ended up at this post on the EU forums. From what I'm reading it's a prestige reward. https://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/top ... 900#post-1. He has some screenshot proof in the post itself including one of him riding on the mount. I even checked his armory and he shows as having collected it there too.

Great work! Thank you :)

I've updated it to reflect the new info.
