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.

Images taken from our 7.3 boss models thread

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.

      We have some raid fixes today, with Opulence and Rastakhan getting a bit easier, with Jaina getting Chilling Touch nerfed, but also no longer affected by Da Voodo Shuffle. There's also some Druid PvP fixes, mostly focused on Resto and more.
      February 20 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar’alor Opulence Unleashed Rage (opal gem buff) and Earthen Roots (emerald gem buff) now also increase damage dealt by pets. King Rastakhan Fixed a bug that caused the encounter to unintentionally reset after resurrecting a player who died in the Death Realm. Lady Jaina Proudmoore Chilling Touch duration reduced by 20%. Chilling Touch is no longer affected by Da Voodoo Shuffle. Fixed a bug that caused Freezing Blood to be sometimes applied to players who correctly had allies nearby, on Mythic Difficulty. Items
      Fixed a bug that caused Enveloping Protection to be removed early when a target was hit with an attack that would fully absorb the shield. Player versus Player
      Druid Resolved an issue that caused Thorns to deal damage when the target is struck by unintended spells such as Eye for an Eye, Frost Fever, or Virulent Plague. Restoration Fixed a bug that caused Soul of the Forest to increase the healing of Germination applied by Nourish without being consumed. Fixed a bug that allowed Nourish to apply two copies of Lifebloom to a target. Quests
      Flushed out a bug that prevented players from always being properly credited for objectives on "Flush Them Out". Previous hotfixes.

      In order to address a bug that caused Open Palm Strikes to stop proccing because the main Fists of Fury target has died, the spell is going to be changed in an upcoming Patch 8.1.5 build to pick a new primary target, similar to how Demon Hunter's Eye Beam works, meaning it will pick the closest thing to you unless you already have a different target.
      Blizzard (Source)
      In the next PTR build*, we’re looking to test this change:
      Now, If your primary target of Fists of Fury is dead or despawns, a new primary target will be picked for the purposes of dealing bonus damage to the primary target. It will pick the closest thing to you, unless you already have something else targeted that’s going to be hit by the damage spell. So this is similar to how Eye Beam picks a target. It should also address Open Palm Strikes (Azerite Trait) sometimes stopping proccing because your main Fists of Fury target has died.
      *This should be soon, but it may be in the public build following the very next one.

      While this may only affect a very small portion of players, we have some blue posts dealing with faction changing and unlocking the new 8.1.5 Allied Races.
      If you're planning to switch factions and wonder how that's going to affect unlocking Kul Tiran Humans and Zandalari Trolls, keep in mind that:
      Reputations will switch over, meaning if you're Exalted  with Proudmoore Admiralty, your reputation standing with The Zandalari Empire should be Exalted after the transfer as well (needs confirmation). The same goes for 7th Legion/Honorbound. You will be automatically Exalted, although you will have to complete the whole War Campaign on the new faction again. A Nation United an Zandalar Forever! achievements do not transfer and you must complete your faction's entire story to get the achievement. Find out more about the upcoming Allied Races in our Patch 8.1.5 content hub.
      Blizzard (Source)
      I’ve completed all the above on my only 120 character. If I was to faction change to alliance now, would I still be able to unlock Zandalari, or do I need to wait till the unlock quest chain is live before faction changing?
      Sorry for the delay, but I got some details related to characters that swap factions and these requirements! If you do a faction change your reputations will switch over but quest completion does not, so if you want to qualify to unlock the kul tiran/zandalari you will need to do the main storyline for that continent and faction.
      Note that for the War Campaign aspect, if you got to exalted with 7th Legion/Honorbound then you can just do all the chapters without any delays to gain more reputation.

      The Zandalari Troll racial ability Embrace of the Loa requires the character to make an offering near a shrine within Dazar'alor to gain one of its passive effects. Talking to guards in Dazar'alor will mark the shrine location on the map and the effect can be reset every 5 days.
      One of the Zandalari racials is really unique and requires player interaction. You're going to find 6 shrines in Dazar'alor and making an offering near a shrine will activate one passive effect for your character which can be changed every 5 days.
      Embrace of the Loa - Choose your Loa by making an offering at Loa Shrines around the world. Each Loa offers unique powers. Guards in Dazar'alor will tell you where Shrines can be found.
      Check out our Patch 8.1.5 content hub to learn more about Zandalari Trolls!

      ILLIDAN AWAITS
      Head to Outland to face Illidan and his cohorts once more in The Black Temple!
      The Black Temple raid is available throughout the Burning Crusade Timewalking event. The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal-level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder. To take on this challenge, you’ll need to get your guild or a group of friends together, or head to Group Finder > Premade Groups. The raid scales for your group size (between 10 — 30 players) and your level and gear will be scaled back to match the raid’s challenges.
      Want to relive the time you first defeated Teron Gorefiend? Face (face, face) the Reliquary of Souls once more? Witness the showdown between Maiev and Illidan before the final fight? Now’s your chance. Inside you can earn transmog sets, the pets you need for Raiding With Leashes III, a Music Roll: The Burning Legion, and gear drops. And for Demon Hunters, there’s the enticing possibility of obtaining the legendary Warglaives of Azzinoth. Are you, this time, prepared?
      DUNGEONS IN THE BURNING CRUSADE TIMEWALKING
      All week, open Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and then select Dungeon Finder and Timewalking in the Type dropdown. When you hit ‘Find Group’, you’ll be matched up with other players and sent to one of the following Heroic dungeons:
      The Arcatraz The Black Morass Magister’s Terrace Mana-Tombs Shattered Halls The Slave Pens Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your natural level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through The Slave Pens, you’ll earn reputation with the Cenarion Expedition, which could open access to purchasing the Cenarion War Hippogryph mount.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar or Chronicler Toopa in Boralus has a quest for you has a quest for you. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal. Quest requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons. Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Battle of Dazar'alor. EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.
