A first look at upcoming Antoran mounts from the new raid.

Two new Antoran hounds were added in Patch 7.3 and they're sharing models with the Hounds of Sargeras boss encounter in Antorus the Burning Throne raid.

Description

Sargeras' own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow and flame.

Antoran CharhoundAntoran Charhound looks like Shatug and Antoran GloomhoundAntoran Gloomhound looks like Fharg.

The mounts (or at least one of them) might have a low drop chance from Sargeras's dogs encounter in Antorus, just like Abyss WormAbyss Worm from Mistress Sass'zine.

They might be slightly unoriginal, but damn are they cool looking. They are cool enough to make me scream if I ever got one.

This right here will be the thought process of most - seeing it around while someone else rides it? Hey, it's kinda cool, bit recycled looking... When it drops for you? O.M.G.

I'm hoping these two mounts will be the heroic/mythic drops from the final raid boss of Legion. Not that wonky looking reskinned griffin.

+1 to this. The other mount looks fine, but it's a proper reskin. This at least has some kind of creativity put onto it too :p

It is a neat mount yes, I just wish they would stop making such cool stuff and then locking it behind content that only a small percent of the population are able to do with a elite guild at there back, or a drop rate so low only 1 in a thousand people ever see it in there lifetime. I had to accept long ago that there was a large portion of this game I will never get to experience due to lack of Luck, time, patience, or enough friends to actually accomplish it :(

They have to do this though. There is already barely any incentive to hardcore raid anymore (perfectly exemplified by the huge number of guilds that are just disappearing) and they already removed Realm First titles and rewards, so they need to reward them cosmetically somehow. Locking the mounts behind Mythic content is the only way to do that.

There needs to be some things that are only for hardcore raiders or that portion of the game will just die.

While I agree people who put extra effort into doing the harder stuff should be rewarded for there effort, I still wish they would better reward us casual players  with good stuff too considering we play the game way more and longer then people who only get on a few times a week to just raid or pvp with there guild.

I don't think rewarding casual players because they play way more makes sense - casual means you don't play as much or put as much time/effort into it? Also, remember that just getting on a few times a week to raid could mean 10+ hours played, not including the time they would put in around raiding as well. Guilds that down KJ/Argus Mythic most likely won't be those casual guilds. It will be ones where each member puts time in to ensure they earn that kill/reward.

I sorry, guess my idea of casual player is someone who plays the regular game , quests, and goofs off here and there but plays 8 or more hours each day.

To play 8 or more hours each day, you surely would be putting time into raids and aiming to get the rewards? If you spend that long playing the game but refuse to participate in Mythic raiding, then you shouldn't receive the rewards. By choosing not to participate, it's your choice not to get them. It's a slightly different story if you are someone that is completely capable and really wants to, but can only play 1 hour per week.

      There's been some changes to the way Blizzard handle PvP disqualifications, specifically those from end of season rewards. Players that have been disqualified from receiving these rewards will also be unable to queue for rated matches in the same season. More details below:
      Season Disqualification (source)
      As part of our continued efforts to combat cheating and unfair play in World of Warcraft, we’ve recently made a change to our policies regarding PvP disqualifications.

      As of the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch, any player who is found to have engaged in unfair practices that result in their disqualification from end-of-season PvP rewards will also have their ability to queue for rated PvP matches immediately revoked. This restriction will continue through the remainder of the season in which they were disqualified, which includes the current “Post-Season” available until Battle for Azeroth launches.

      This change is intended to minimize the impact that disqualified players have on those who are playing legitimately while the PvP season continues, and is just one aspect of our ongoing commitment to upholding the competitive integrity of World of Warcraft PvP.

      We have the trifecta of hotfixes in three days, with today's bringing even more class tweaks, the cap for gold transfers upped to 1 million gold, enemy HP significantly reduced in EN, ToV, Nighthold and ToS, as well as the now standard quest, profession and dungeon bug fixes.
      July 20 (source)
      Classes
      Monk The Earth and Fire clone from Storm, Earth, and Fire should correctly mimic Rushing Jade Wind, regardless of the player’s target. Paladin Protection Fixed a bug preventing the Light’s Vanguard Battleplate 4-piece bonus from activating and deactivating as intended. Fixed an issue where Consecration occasionally failed to provide its self-buff. Rogue Assassination Fixed a bug where Blindside was not learnable until level 40. Warlock Demonology The Command Demon version of Spell Lock can no longer be cast without a target. Demonic Calling can now correctly be activated by casting Demonbolt.  
      Character Services
      Characters at level 110 and above may now move up to 1,000,000 gold when performing a Character Transfer.  
      Creatures and NPCs
      Fixed a visual bug that caused some characters to lose the tops of their heads.  
       Dungeons and Raids
      The health and damage of all enemies in Emerald Nightmare, Trial of Valor, The Nighthold, and Tomb of Sargeras has been significantly reduced. The experience awarded on completion of a random dungeon has been increased. Antorus, the Burning Throne Fixed a bug preventing Death's Advance from functioning correctly in certain encounter situations, such as Aggramar’s Flame Rend. Eye of Azshara Damage dealt by Lightning Strike, Warlord Parjesh’s Crashing Wave, and Quicksand have been significantly reduced. The Nexus Chaotic Energy Bursts from Chaotic Rifts no longer inflict excessive damage. Obsidian Sanctum Sartharion’s Large Satchel of Spoils should again contain loot. Return to Karazhan Mana Confluences’ Ablative Shield should no longer absorb an excessive amount of damage. Utgarde Keep Dragonflayer Runecaster’s Bolthorn's Rune of Flame now deals less damage. Items
      Darkmoon Deck: Promises no longer reduces some non-mana resources. Fixed a bug that prevented banners from granting expected honor, experience, and reputation bonuses. Fishing Chair and Nat's Fishing Chair have been temporarily converted into objects that are not chairs, while a bug with their functionality is fixed. They will return to their former function in a future patch.  
      Player versus Player
      Adjusted PvP scaling to reduce the difference in power and damage between players of different item levels at level 110. Fixed a bug preventing some players from obtaining Honorable Medallion while PvP-enabled.  
      Professions
      Fishing Fixed a bug that caused the wrong sound when casting.  
      Quests
      Fixed a bug with the reputation bonus on completion of "Death to Agogridon". If you previously completed the quest, speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive your reward. The talking quest NPC should no longer appear for players who are nearby, but are not the Hunter on “Never Hunt Alone”. Players should again be able to complete “All Charged Up”. Fixed a bug with the conversation required for “Secrets of Wrymskull Uncovered”, allowing completion of “The Echo of Ymiron”. Low-level players are now able to do appropriate damage to the  Devilsaur Queen during "The Ballad of Maximillian”. “Pitching In” can again be completed. World
      It is again possible to earn credit toward "Field Photographer" when using the S.E.L.F.I.E. cam anywhere within the Path of Uther. Alliance characters can again complete "Uther's Blessing" by approaching Uther's statue. Previous 8.0.1 hotfixes:

      You can reach Exalted with the Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Patch 8.0.1. A bug prevented players that have already completed the questline to get reputation boost. Luckily, this has been fixed by Blizzard in North America and a hotfix will be up soon in Europe as well. The fix requires a server restart.
      Both reputations count toward the 100 Exalted Reputations achievement that rewards "the Esteemed" title and a mount (Pureheart Courser). You can find more details about how to start the questline here. If you completed Death to Agogridon before the pre-patch, speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive the reputation boost.

      Players continue to discover hidden perks of the 8.0 pre-patch. Redditor fgmenth noticed that it's possible to reach Exalted reputation standing with the Gelkis and Magram Clan Centaurs in Desolace.
      Update: A hotfix went live that allows players to directly talk to Marnum Marshweaver in Desolace after having completed Death to Agogridon. Check out this post for more details.

      The cool thing is that you only need to complete a couple of quests to get to Exalted and both factions count toward the new 100 Exalted Reputations that rewards "the Esteemed" title and the Pureheart Courser mount.

      Quest Chain
      Maraudine Prisoner Manifest is needed to start the quest chain and the item drops from Maraudine Maulers in Desolace. You need to complete some quests in order for it to drop, more details can be found here. Completing the final quest will give you enough reputation with both factions to instantly reach Exalted.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas answered your Battle for Azeroth questions today. Check out our roundup of the latest Live Developer Q&A!
      Q&A Highlights
      NA servers are briefly down for maintenance. Ion apologizes for 8.0.1, it was not the smoothest of pre-patch launches. "Players deserve better." They're working to bring Communities back. They completely overhauled the squish mechanism this time around so that they can bring down numbers with the press of a button instead of just scaling everything down manually. There are many issues with scaling, leading to mobs one-shotting you and various other bugs. The team's working around the clock to fix bugs and appreciate constructive feedback! When they fix a single bug, it can affect content that's several expansions old. If you earned Mage Tower appearances on one character, you'll be able to equip it on a second character of the same Class. No intent whatsoever to nerf Dungeon experience. The "weekly reward" is a visual bug. Warlock caster / idle animations are still in the works. Legacy Loot System won't apply to Legion raids in Battle for Azeroth at level 120. Personal Loot will be used for that, but if you're soloing Legion raid content, you'll receive loot as if you were in a 10-player group. The system was always intended for content 11+ levels higher. Mythic mounts should be tradable with Personal Loot. Azerite Armor is untradable in Battle for Azeroth. A piece of Azerite shoulders that's being looked at by multiple Classes has a different set of Azerite traits for each of them and they don't want you to give it to the Class that has the best traits on it. There shouldn't be a single best comp for all affixes. Mythic+ Seasons affect end-game rewards, so they want to align them with new raid tiers and PvP Seasons. In Battle for Azeroth, there will be Seasonal affixes activating at Keystone level 10. The first Seasonal affix will retire with the release of a new raid tier when they'll introduce a new one. Do we need a squish in every other expansion? Power progression is important for the game and there are too many tiers of progression and the high item level is what it takes for rewards to feel consistently rewarding. In BfA, players will begin to reach 10K DPS (as in Wrath). They didn't intend to increase the difficulty of Legacy content and old raids. Blizzard standardized camera anchor points for all Classes. When you start scrolling, you'll notice that the camera points to a point just above your head. No more claustrophobic camera snapping for Gnomes and Goblins! No plans to update traits on Underlight Angler for BfA. It's tied to Legion. Artifacts will override what you wear in your off-hand. They want to develop more customization options though. Azerite traits will have more depth throughout BfA. The vast majority of traits we've seen so far include less complex traits on leveling gear and feel lackluster. It's possible that a Mage Tower type of solo content will return in Battle for Azeroth. VoD
