Vicious saddles have been removed from game

Not sure if this has been reported elsewhere but Vicious saddles have been removed from the game. This means you can only get ONE mount per season and that mount is set. (reddit thread contains the GM confirmation that they are gone)

https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/ ... ng-updates

https://www.reddit.com/r/wow/comments/9 ... h=6258b59f

So if you aren't into the Clefthoof for Horde or Hippo for Alliance best to wait till the one you want comes around.

The good news is pvp mounts are now account wide and can be grinded through 2v2 now as well. So the grind is easier but the reward might be meh depending on your taste. Not sure how great this change is but there you go ;)

Oof, now I'm really relieved I got my Forsaken Warhorse a few years back. x_x I had been contemplating doing the grind again for the Hawkstrider, but I procrastinated too long I suppose. This is kind of a crappy thing to do without warning though (as far as I can tell?). The saddles were nice for having a choice, if I had known they were going to be retiring them I might have put more effort into another. I hope they keep cycling the old mounts back.

Yeah from what I understand no warning at all. I would hope they would cycle through them all eventually since removing things entirely from the game hasn't gone down well in the past but if you wanted say your horse and it was last in the cycle you could be waiting many seasons for it :?

Thanks for letting us know!

I tweeted here: https://twitter.com/WarcraftMounts/stat ... 8584076288

Hopefully they'll respond :) Feel free to chime in or support it - maybe they're more likely to respond if it gets player attention. Thanks :)

They should at least let you choose your mount.

Why do they keep making such poor decisions? I can't see any benefit to this

They didn't bother replying. This makes me think it is intended. They like to make unpopular decisions without announcement and then not answer any questions. They did the same with Brawler's mounts.
