Yes, I’m here to tell you definitively what the best mounts in the game are.
The list will be limited to mounts I actually HAVE, which means no Mimiron’s Head, or that sparkly thing that Elegon drops. Which by the way both don’t exist, I am sure of it.
Ashes of Al’ar
It’s AL’ARming (*snort*) how pretty this mount is.
But Lunchi, could you look more enthusiastic?
This shiny, shiny bird drops from Kael’thas Sunstrider in Tempest Keep, and will make you the envy of all your friends. I like it because it makes colours and patterns in the sky as you fly. It’s hypnotic, almost.
*flies into fatigue area*
“but I can see it!”
When this dropped from the Lich King (25hc for those who don’t know) I actually squealed a little. It’s a badass undead horse! He’s also probably glad to be in your possession, considering the Lich King would have rode on him in damn heavy armour, and you weigh a LOT less.
Red Flying Cloud
It’s not necessarily as FANCY as some other mounts, given that it’s a cloud with a disc on top, but it’s the only mount I can think of where you can stand with your weapon out like above, and it looks IMPOSSIBLY AWESOME.
Flametalon of Alysrazor
It doesn’t fly, so I don’t use it much, but it’s still awesome looking. Burning birdy!
When I’m unable to fly, this is one of the mounts I tend to default to.
It’s a fabulous pinky/purpley dragon. What’s not to love?
While I’m a sucker for bright colours, the muted palette of this mount actually makes it my preferred gryphon over any other. Plus, it just looks generally higher-quality than the others. Probably comes from it being a Mists of Pandaria mount, rather than having been in the game for forever and a day.
Volcanic Stone Drake
Again, it’s the colours I like, though this time it’s the striking contrast between the dark colours, and the red that juts out from it that makes this a really eye-catching mount.
I tell you, if THIS was the mount that Slabhide dropped, I might care about him more to farm him. As it stands, this is Best Drake, and Slabhide can go swivel, dammit.
So, what are your favourite mounts? Do you disagree with mine?
Well, you’re wrong. This is, of course, THE OFFICIAL LIST, but you can feel free to be wrong in the comments.
Though if you’re just going to say Mimiron’s Head or the sparkly Elegon constellation mount, I may have to fight you. Put up your dukes.
