Another tameable raptor mount

Unread post by Wain » Mon Jul 02, 2012 11:14 am

Thanks to Noah (I believe) there's now a second raptor mount that is tameable: the Drakkari Raptor Mount in Drak'Tharon Keep.

Unlike the Pandaria one, this one is low on the bling, as it uses the primitive-looking basic riding raptor model. But it has that really awesome (and a little creepy) iguana face.

It only comes in one colour, orange with indigo stripes, but it's quite lovely. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a matching mount available :(

Image


If only they'd made a non-saddle version of that model. Ah well :)

One of the old school raptor mounts was that color. Also now I'm getting a raptor just because of this color/model, hope they make more of them.

Sadly I think this is currently the only other free-standing raptor mount that isn't friendly or some sort of mount vendor decoration. So if they add more it'll probably have to be by adding new NPCS :/

BTW, in case anyone's wondering... no, the Amani Bears are still not tameable. Nor is Azurebeak (aggro Hawkstrider in Netherstorm).

I'd totally tame this model, but I never did understand why a hunter would send an encumbered (by the saddle) pet into battle.

I almost teared up. I really almost did. I've been going in and out of Drak Tharon Keep since Wrath because I always wanted that raptor.

I hope we do not lose the opportunity to tame that one, because that is by far the one raptor pet I would never get rid of. I love orange, and that one has the shade in the best possible way.

Nice, this is the only mount model that I'd be tempted to tame. I love the non-epic models...just wish we could get a nonsaddle/bridle.

I am very happy that these riding raptor mounts are tamable, these models are the raptor models that i LOVE, dotn get me wrong, I really like the other raptor models, but the ones with the horns and the feathers, are just pure win!

Agreeing with Makoes, I love these models of raptors the most...if they introduced some without the saddles and bridles, that'd be so awesome. I love their iguana heads!

...I think I need to take a look at this, man. If I like it enough maybe I can tell myself the saddle and bridle are just a war harness. >.>

Now if only we can get a wild venomhide mount model thrown into the game as a killable mob and flip the tame switch to on....

*Pterodactyl scream* Ff. Words! Cannot describe my joy!

These raptors! I love them! Happiness. Happiness everywhere.

Whoever caused this is getting my eternal, unending love.

The fact that an originally untameable saddled raptor became tameable? Means to me that yes, these are probably *meant* to be tamed. That makes me happy! :D
