Patch 7.3: Antoran Charhound & Antoran Gloomhound

Recommended Posts

eFkywaQ.jpg

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.

      Sinrunner Reins is a new and probably secret mount that you can obtain in Shadowlands.
      We currently do not know what happened to good Old Blanchy after it died back in Westfall, but the mount has a Venthyr hue to it, so we speculate that its soul ended up in Revendreth for some reason.
      Sinrunner Reins teaches you Sinrunner Blanchy, so we know for sure it is the same horse we previously encoutered, but what sins did Blanchy commit remains to be seen.
      Other datamined spells and items tied to the mount and the NPC that you need to interact with to get it are:
      Blanket for Blanchy (DNT) requires Comfortable Saddle Blanket "A soft and comfortable blanket for regulating body temperature." Blanchy Horseshoes (DNT) > Requires 4 Sturdy Horseshoes "Protective footwear for horse-like creatures." Groomed Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Grooming Brush "A circular motion with the stiff bristled brush removes and soothes itches." Watered Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Bucket of Clean Water "Guaranteed to quench the greatest thirst." Apples for Blanchy (DNT) indicates that you will need three Dredhollow Apple to create Sinrunner Reins, which seems to be the final step in getting the mount.
      Based on the number of items you must acquire, we think the mount will be tied to some secret, where you must brush the horse, provide it with a blanket, clean water, and so on.
      Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      Some rumors were circulating about the removal of Herald of the Titans in Shadowlands after the level squish. Luckily, we're able to confirm the achievement is there, but the requirements were squished down too.
      If you want to get the Herald of Titans achievement in Shadowlands before the squish on live servers, you must be at level 80 and have nobody in the raid wear items higher than item level 100. With the Shadowlands level squish, you will need to defeat Algalon at level 30 wearing items no higher than item level 35.
      Herald of the Titans in Visions of N'Zoth Herald of the Titans in the Shadowlands Pre-Patch Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 80 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 100. Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 30 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 35.

      Niya, one of the Soulbinds available to members of the Night Fae Covenant, comes with an interesting Soulbind trait that mimics the Shadowmeld Night Elf racial.
      If you decide to join the Night Fae Covenant, you will gain access to the Soulshape Signature Ability, which increases your Movement Speed by 50% and teleports you 15 yards forward on a short cooldown.
      Niya, one of the Night Fae Soulbinds, comes with the Sylvari Mantle that conceals you when Soulshape ends until you move, so it acts pretty much like the Shadowmeld, the Night Elf racial.
      Other Soulbind traits that you can get through Niya include:
      Row 1: Stay on the Move (on the same row with Sylvari Mantle) Row 4: Niya's Tools: Burrs // Niya's Tools: Poison // Niya's Tools: Herbs Row 7: Care Package // Swift Patrol Row 8: Grove Invigoration Note that you can only pick one Soulbind trait per row.
      Here's Niya's full Soulbind Path.
