My main hunter is LW so that's cool. I like the tan wolf a ton, it just sucks that it's LW-/required/ not just LW to make.

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

The Heavenly Jade Cloud Serpent was deleted from the database entire in this new build. It had actually been there a very long time, but after a recent minor data change people started to notice it and comment. I guess that drew it to the attention of someone, who "cleaned it up". At least that answers our question about whether it really is becoming available.

I would be kinda surprised if it did become available, seeing as it looks exactly like Yu'lon.

Not surprising to me, but it is a shame to lose a lovely variation. Alas!

:(

Blizzard once again crushing my dreams. Was really hoping that'd be the MoP timewalking reward. I don't see why it looking like Yulon would be so bad; it's an old expansion and while she is a god, we've had other mounts like the Handmaiden that may not have the exact same model, but have the likeness of an important aspect/character.

If it's ever made available, I agree with earlier posters who suggested it should be a Monk class flying mount. :)

Prestige mounts will be from level 3 prestige, which I know is discouraging for those who don't like to pvp. However, pvp gear isn't going to be as unbalanced, meaning hard core pvpers aren't going to massively outgear you if you only pvp occasionally. There will also be world pvp quests, and in the past those have included quests that were practically pve, and the pvp part of it could include being sneaky enough not to get caught.

Or, worse case scenario, you might end up hiring someone to help with pvp, just like a pvper might hire a carry through some pve content.

The good news, for minipet collectors, is the prestige minipet will come at prestige level 1.

Thanks Xota. At least earning the Prestige 1 pet will also get you on the way towards the mount :)

And yeah, there are a bunch of world pvp quests that can involve very little actual pvp, just NPCs. One is actually quite fun, where you defeat wildlife and turn them into mounts with their own special abilities. Of course these quests still flag you, so if members of the opposite faction are present then you may end up in pvp anyway. But at least there are options other than the traditional methods.

My greatest concern is that the Prestige rewards are so rigid. I had originally thought that for every rank you earned you got to choose something from the reward selection, but instead they've set specific rewards to specific levels. So when they introduce another courser mount later, could it end up being the rank 9 or 10 reward or something? If so, what a nightmare for collectors. :/

A few mounts are going away, or are becoming more difficult to obtain after the pre-expansion patch today:

Full list here: http://warcraftmounts.com/
  • The Challenger's War Yeti will be permanently unobtainable, as Warlords Challenge Modes are being removed.
  • The Brawler's Burly Mushan Beast is going away temporarily, as the Brawler's Guild is going to be on hiatus. At this stage we have no idea when it will return. Maybe during Legion, maybe later.
  • The Dread Raven isn't being removed, but will become harder to obtain because the Warlords digital deluxe bundle is being pulled from the shop today. After today your only recourse will be to track down a full, unused Warlords CE, which will probably be expensive.

Unless Blizz has changed their plans, the Brawler's Guild will be going away for all of Legion. Will be revamped for the following xpac.

Honor is going away. The "Black War" mounts will require a new currency after the pre-Expansion patch. So if you already have the Honor you need to use it up immediately!!

Has anyone seen a source for the Long-Forgotten Hippogryph? It's in the mount list, but it's...deliberately being obscure, I think. Only a zone (Azsuna) is listed, and the flavor text: "You are the only one that remembered." All I can find are Wowhead links to an item, and a (potentially rare) NPC.

http://www.wowhead.com/item=138258/rein ... hippogryph
http://www.wowhead.com/npc=108366/long- ... hippogryph

I've been waiting for THAT variant of the hippogryph mount since it was datamined for 2.3. I'd given up on it ever being added...

My guess was a new Timewalking, but it could well be some rare placed item in the old world zones, like that murloc pet!

According to the mount guide, its Azsuna. Theres a trigger spell for it too that is called "Summon Long-Forgotten Hippogryph": http://www.wowhead.com/spell=215345/sum ... hippogryph

My guess is in Azsuna, there is something that triggers the NPC, which drops the mount. I have scoured items and objects and quests that could be used to trigger and nothing jumped out at me. Theres a place in Azsuna thats a really obscure path up a high mountain and its full of other Hippogryphs. I have a feeling it has something to do with that, two places in particular. You've actually reminded me to open a thread about my suspicions, so I'll do that.

I've spent a lot of time going through the database and checking this place out but found nothing.
