New mounts for Mists of Pandaria revealed

Blizzard adding "dozens" of new mounts with upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, including cloud serpents, yaks, birds, and flying discs.

by

In addition to introducing the new Pandaria zone and Pandaren race, next month's World of Warcraft expansion Mists of Pandaria will bring "dozens" of new mounts, Blizzard has announced. The developer revealed these today through the World of Warcraft website, detailing a host of animal beasts and vehicles.

Mists of Pandaria brings dragon cloud serpent mounts.

New mounts for Mists of Pandaria include cloud serpents (at right), water striders, flying discs, yaks, and a gun-mounted zeppelin. More details and images of the expansion's mounts are available through the game's website.

Mists of Pandaria is World of Warcraft's fourth expansion, and arrives on September 25. The add-on also bumps the game's level cap to 90 and introduces a new monk class.

I still find it weird that you can't get a copy of GW2 now. I think they are waiting for MOP to launch and it's effect on their pop. It has nothing to do with keeping players happy and lag. It's all about $$ and they don't want 15 servers sitting empty.  I'm placing bets right now that around Sep 23 digital copies of GW2 will become available.

Now let's hope that you don't have to spend months of frenzied grinding to get them or worse, pay for them. :)

This is true, wow is a great game regardless which races/classes they put in. The fact that they still update it and constantly work on new IDEA by adding content is amazing, considering the fact that it has been 8 years released on november 24th =)

 

GW2 is also a great game, but again it was just released and lets see what it will offer us in the next 7 years.

 

Don't hate, just play!!

How many so called "wow killers" are come and gone and failed. I don't see Guild Wars 2 being able to overthrow WoW and become the number one MMO.

Stopped playing WoW since 2007. A good game, but... a "little" too expensive (and time demanding :S)

WOW IS DEAD! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Why not add a leeroy jenkins toon? Or a "who touched the whelps" edition?

A huge reason why I support GW2 over WoW is that ArenaNet WANTS to promote a business model with no subscription fees. I don't see why anyone would want to pay 15$/month to play over having no fees at all. Blizzard is milking all its players and many seem to like it.

 

ArenaNet WANTS to deliver a high quality product and has invested 5 years in making it so. None of this annual business cycle like other mega-grossing franchises such as CoD. Sort of like CD Projekt Red (Witcher 1 & 2) who want to provide DLC-like content for free.

 

I don't see why gamers wouldn't be in favour of such philosophies and instead feel the need to defend companies that charge them a steady stream of money beyond the original purchase price to continue to play.

It would be nice if they concentrated on game content rather than lame gimmicks like these mounts, pokemon and pointless achievements. Instead we're stuck with another microscopic sized 5-level expansion. Three weeks of content to last us two years

Ahh, I  remember those days when WoW was considered the crown jewel of MMO gaming. It's aging, and should probably stop after this expansion. But they were some good years.

 @gameking5000 GW2 really is different.  All the other wow killers were crap.  It's early, but GW2 is certainly living up to the hype right now.  Most fun I've had in a mmo in ages.

 @7_armageddon_7 You will never understand the sheep, many people in real life are similar, they go for expensive stuff when they can have something better for less money (working in megamarket so I am experiencing that everyday)

 @Dudeinator They're not.  They have two more expansions to go, since it's likely they'll stop once the level cap is set to 100.

 @Abysshalolover 9.1 million people.... so yeah, I think it's safe to say that it's still being played.  *eye-roll*

 @buccomatic  Come back to me when GW2 sells tens of millions of copies of GW and has a  user base of 9 million which will get a bump when this expansion comes out.  I've tried GW2, and knew within 10 minutes that the game doesn't hold a candle to WoW.

If you'd read my comment is everything apart whining. I was just explaining that all these stupid things you're posting (you included) are useless, everyone enjoy different games, where is the problem? But you had to post another useless comment like "Cry moar" without adding anything to the discussion but just confirming that you're a 12 years old child or just another idiot, now just choose.

 

And since I don't want to insult a child below 18 years of age, I just let you post more useless comments since it's the best thing that you're able to do.

 

If after reading my previous post all the comes in your mind it's "Cry Moar", well, I don't think you have the IQ to discuss in a mature and civil way.

 

If a game it's really good you don't have to diss another one to make the other look good and awesome. If some people thinks that WoW is good that doesn't mean that Guild Wars 2 is bad, and viceversa.

 

Your attitude it's just childish and stupid, you can insult me as much as you want, but the one making the figure of an idiot it's you, not me. Just grow up.

 @Sky_Stifler  @7_armageddon_7 Or maybe.... this is just hypothetical speaking here...  they still pay for it because they still like the game?

 

I know this is hard for people like you to understand, since you're obviously hellbent on assuming that all WoW players are mindless sheep that flock together from expansion to expansion.

 

My heavy-playing WoW days ended in 2008, and I've moved onto other games myself.  I'm enjoying the crap out of GW2 like many others... and will for a loooong time.  I even bought the collector's edition.  :D

 

But I'm also buying the collector's edition of Mists.  Why?  Because unlike people like you, I play games I enjoy, not games people TELL ME I should enjoy.  It IS entirely possible for someone to have fun with WoW and GW2 simultaneously.

 

But hopefully this works out better than it did when I bought the collector's edition of SWTOR... boy was that a mistake on my part.  :|

 @DragonRift LOL whatever on that not even Close to having 9.1 subs (anymore) if you can prove that. then want to see the results because last time i played servers were empty ( LOW) . yeah at 1 point they had 10 mil subs. doesn't mean they were all active.

 @Barrakas21  @michaelrjohnson 

 

They said the same thing about SWTOR: "nah it's better than WOW just give it some time it's too new they gotta fix some stuff..." and well we know where it went. i'm far from a WOW fanboy and i've tried to find a new MMO but GW2, SWTOR they all were normal and in my opinion not enough to beat WOW, it's more to compete equally

 @michaelrjohnson  its not even been 3 weeks since game is out  tipical fanboy i played wow for 7 years and 1 week of gw and in way it compares with same old warcraft deal with it fanboy theres a ney player in town tell that to all full servers in gw lol 

7_armageddon_7

 @DragonRift  @Sky_Stifler For my part, I understand that WoW is a good game and that people pay because they enjoy it. I just get irked when folks slag GW2 and not realize that this subscription free model is really good for consumers (I know that some can afford 15$/month) and, taking into personal tastes, I do really think that GW2 *cannot* be called a "bad" game where the developer did not put effort, thought and polish into their work, where the developer rushed the game out before it was ready in the name of profits, advocate a pay-to-win mentality, etc, etc.

@Abysshalolover

  No, you don't already "know", because if you did, these articles wouldn't exist.  Again, just about 3 weeks ago, Gamestop themselves even mentioned it.

 

And this is only three of the dozens of other sites talking about it.

 @DragonRift  @Abysshalolover i said prof you have nothing bro because i already know thats why i'm waiting for you to show me :) so prove it to me? waiting..... other then that girl have a great day

 @Abysshalolover Oh gee, I don't know.  IGN, Gamespot and several other sources pointed out their drop to 9.1 million only a couple weeks ago.  At one point they peaked at 12 million in 2009.

 

It also helps when you simply do the research yourself.  But you obviously just want to sit around and troll.  And such a cute cuddly troll you are!  I JUST WANNA HUG AND SQUEEZE YOU!  :D
