Oooh, why did you suggest that? Now I'll forever pine for what could have been!

Sorry, I'm totally obsessed with hexed beasts :) I hope more of them become tameable in 8.1, although I'm pretty pessimistic about that happening.

Seeing as the Order of Embers is against the Drust and their magic, they probably wouldn't have ridden a hexed horse. I think a horse adorned with the colors of their order, a small perch for falcons, and perhaps severed witch head trophies, would be a rather fitting mount for them.

I'd love to have a chair that scoots around as a mount!

Siggy under construction!

New Nightsaber mount in today's build. Looks to be using the vanilla Worg skeleton.

I don't think it's meant or actually on a Worg skeleton. I think it's like some of the other models Wowhead datamined and it just seems to be a "stiff paper doll" until it's updated. The same thing happened with that Blood Elf NPC not to long ago (Lorethemar? I think)

Very likely will use the same cat skeleton like the other feline mounts. My guess is personally it'll be akin to either the Vicious Black War Tiger or that Flamesaber mount.

Also looks like Horde will get it (or at least some sort of Nightsaber), since some of the database items also say "Captured Kaldorei Nightsaber" and it currently 'teaches' this mount. But of course, subject to change too lol for all I know it could be placeholder. Esp since even in 3D model viewer on mmo champ links to a different model xD who knows?

But on the subject, I LOVE this mount. Can't wait to get my hands on it <3 well I can't wait for any of the new Nightsaber, but that armor is superb.

The nightsaber will be all out of whack until the skeleton is working right.

I've updated the WCM 8.1 page with all the new details, including the toad mounts (it looks like they might be coming, finally!), the new kodo colour, the nightsaber and chimaera sources, and the new bareback bear: https://www.warcraftmounts.com/patch81.php

Curious where that info is from. As far as I could tell that model wasn't actually active yet.

Wowhead has it listed as such. Further, there is a Horde version of the mount, too. It is similar to that horse in Arathi that both factions can get.

Ahh. If it's the one I'm thinking of (the Kaldorei Nightsaber, with two mount items) then its appearance is (currently) that of the new black nightsaber, not the armoured one. The cat it drops from actually has a Broken Isles nightsaber appearance but hopefully they'll fix that.

Ah, I see. Might not be fully implemented then.
