I do hope horde have access to at least ONE horse. Maybe for killing a major alliance figure during a quest/campaign or something. Likewise for Alliance, some access to a ptera/raptor, just ofc not as many colors/options available to them.

Or just allow some to be cross faction but require a horde/alliance to just obtain, like the ashran talbuks.

The Pterrodax will be obtainable by both sides since they are the new Netherwing/Cloud Serpents. I haven't seen much in the way of raptors mounts.

I mean we don't know that yet, unless they've confirmed it somewhere. It could be a horde only faction.

A list of factions was posted and the Pterrodax faction was listed as a neutral one.

Hey guys, lurking around again! =)

First off I'm finally hyped about BFA and the only reason for it is the amazing new datamined models for old as well as entirely new creatures!=)

Okay I read a couple of you guys talking about a faction list, listing which faction are tied with either ally or horde or both. Would one of you guys please be so kind to link it to me as I'm running into dead ends while attempting to find it on my own. =/

second off: I love the new horses I think their models and highres skins are awesome... I just have one "but". Am I the only one feeling a bit sad that we go away from having a handful of horse model varieties to only now getting one bulky drafthorse? I'm not a diehard horse girl but I really love them still and I feel a bit sad that we lose a sleeker more build for speed model to a drafty. That said blizz; you're complete forgiven if you bother to make a norwegian fjordhorse coloration. you already have the model and color mostly down, just add the black stribe in the mane and give it a real horse tail! =D

I believe I found the list on Scrolls of Lore. I'll check around and, when I find it, I'll link it here :)

I second the fjord horse. Or other primitive horse breeds.

Thanks for having a look into it Valnaaros. =)

Yeah generally some more stocky primitive and smaller horse breeds would fit in rather well with kul'tiras in my eyes, just an opinion though!=)

Every time I see the Blood Troll Beasts the more I'm reminded about Squigs. Not a bad thing Squigs are awesome or "Da bestest" if you want to talk like a Greenskin.

This is as much as I could find concerning the new reps. They have a list of datamined rep factions, as well as discussion about data strings that say something about how we have to raise Pterrodax hatchlings for the Pterrodax Training rep :)

On one hand, love the new horse models. On the other, please let at least let one be non-faction specific. XD

I hope the dino taming is not locked to horde. Because all my friends are on Alliance.

Speaking of mounts.

Is this not the perfect expansion to add t-rex mounts?

@Tomb I'm fairly certain they will be for both factions. Going by datamined info, they will probably be like the Cloud Serpents.

@Tarain You bet! Happy to help :)

The CE mounts and pet are now unlocked in the journals! Pre orders being made available today is very likely :D

As a primarily Alliance player, that Ravasaur makes me so jealous, haha.

Well if you have a Belf Paladin then technically you have access to 8 horses with the class mount as horde :lol:

But yeah I get what you mean. I love horses even though most find them boring.
