Agreed. I wouldn't mind if they switched them around.

That is the Horde one, yes? Glad they updated it. Though not unique, at least they get an armored mount like the Alliance does (the nightsaber).
No, it's an Island Expeditions mount. The Horde one remains a basic bat mount, which is ok on its own but looks a bit cheesy next to the fancy Alliance armoured cat.
I think the Horde will survive. The Alliance survived 3 horses for their rep mounts, after all.

Kunchong for hunter pets!

There's literally only 3 or 4 bat mounts. And one of them uses a greater bat model (Undercity Bat).

Compared to 50+ Horses.

Horde will survive.

They could of at least put armour on it. It's a bit shitty.

That's how Alliance felt regarding the horses.

They could have used the one unused armoured bat mount, I guess:

It has a night blighted green colour.

That certainly fits the undead theme more. I will admit the Rubyshell Krolusk looks way better then the Azureshell Krolusk. Colour theory wise the brown of the riding gear contrasts nicely with the orangey red while the Azureshell uses the same blue on the Krolusk and parts of the riding gear and it blends in and it's an odd choice.

Is that crab a mount? If so that's the best thing ever.

Yep! Notice that the saddle is on sideways. That is because the crab runs sideways :)

Best mount ever. Blizz should stop because they are not going to be able to top that.

Bruce and the Crab are nice. Rest are lackluster in my opinion. The Iron Horde wolf is WAY past due though, as ugly as it is. Absolutely no acceptable reason for that to have taken so long to be available, but compared to that ugly elekk, I guess they needed something to look worthwhile.

Real talk though; I want that crab skin as a pet. Like, right now.

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
Oh wait...you can't!

Name the game these characters are from, and I'll be amazed.

If you pre-order the remaster of Warcraft 3 you get a meat wagon mount.

I love the hippocampus! And it's very cool that idea was one of the winners of our mount contest last year - posted by Niabi! :) I wonder if any of other ideas will make it in... swan paddle boat maybe? :D

Note, there's currently a bundle with WC3 and a Blizzcon virtual ticket. BUT if you already have a virtual ticket it detects this and subtracts it from the price of the bundle when you go to purchase.
