Here's how to get your free World of Warcraft epic mount Hearthsteed

Free mount Hearthsteed glows blue, requires three Hearthstone wins with latest patch installed.

Following the official release of Hearthstone last night, Blizzard is giving away a free epic mount to World of Warcraft owners if they play enough of its new collectible card battler.

Hearthsteed looks like a magical Pegasus, with a nifty blue glowing effect. Dataminers had previously found a red glowing version of the mount in a WoW patch, which was presumed to be the Horde version of Hearthsteed, although this is not the case at present--you'll only get a glowing blue version right now.

To obtain the mount, you'll need to win three games against real, human opponents in Hearthstone's Play or Arena modes. Not too tricky… but it does mean you'll have to play enough Hearthstone to get a basic understanding of the game.

If you've been playing Hearthstone already, you'll need to get three more wins to be eligible. You'll know you've got it when you see the Mount Up! award (pictured right).

Obtaining Hearthsteed will also give any of your World of Warcraft characters the "Hearthstoned" achievement.

Blizzard also recently announced that players will be able to upgrade one World of Warcraft character to level 90 by preordering upcoming expansion World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.

I hate these cross game rewards. I play WoW but I'd never play this, Diablo or Starcraft.

what up guys, i just played hearthstone and just got my 3 Ws after many losses, and i was notified of my new mount right after it.

here's how you can get it: after you've defeated the 5 trials when you came in. it'll take you to a casual or rank mode screen which is an option you have to choose. so win one of those bracket 3x and shabam! you will be notify of your new mount...p.s. keep checking your quest log, it'll tell you how many wins you've gotten so far. make sure you got that 3W's top left hand corner for total of wins. Good luck and happy hunting....

<< LINK REMOVED >> There's a couple of ways. You can be a complete asshat and just wait for the last second to end your turn, some people concede as they do not want to wait around. Or you can just try your luck. I'm not that good at this card game, but I managed 3 wins (and 10 losses) in about 1 hour.

You must win 3 matches AFTER beta, it does not count beta wins; and it glows blue regardless of faction as there is no red version

Seems to be slightly bugged at the moment. The mount for Horde isn't red, but blue. I'm sure it'll be fixed shortly, though.


Or maybe they're saving the red version for the Shop. Let's hope not!

What if I already won 3 matches against human opponents before this thing started. Do I get the mount or do I have to win another 3 matches for the mount to be in my account?

<< LINK REMOVED >> I wondered about this too. I had to win another 3 games (not in a row, thankfully). It then gives you the popup that you have won the mount.
