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.

      With a fair amount of game adaptations heading over to Netflix in TV show form, the most recent and significant being the Witcher, Str1der has taken it upon himself to make a trailer for what a World of Warcraft show might look like. With the Warcraft movie not having done so well and having somewhat deviated from the original lore (although, so has the game itself at this point), it would really be a nice thing to see all the ancillary content featured in novels and comics etc. brought together in TV show format.
      The trailer is pretty well put together, however the choice of the song "Human" is clearly Alliance-favoritism and wholly inappropriate, therefore we all need to boycott it!!11 (For those of you that are sensitive to the faction allegiances, well, first of all, what's wrong with you, and second, that was a joke.)
      My personal favorite is when Illidan shows up and the song goes "some people have real problems", which is perhaps one of the most accurate song to scene pairings in the history of trailers.
      So, what do you think of the trailer and the idea of a Netflix WoW show? Should it focus on present day Azeroth and follow the expansions to give us a better understanding of the characters we interact with, or would you prefer it to start from the very beginning and eventually catch up?

      World of Warcraft's third expansion was released on this day 8 years ago.
      Deathwing transformed Azeroth forever as we know it. In Cataclysm, the whole world burned under the shadow of his wings and the expansion went live on December 7, 2010.
      Patch 4.1: Rise of the Zandalari
      The first major content patch of the expansion was released on April 26, 2011 and brought the reopening of Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub. While Amani War Bear was removed from the game, players can still obtain a recolor of the mount (Amani Battle Bear) to this day.
      Patch 4.2: Rage of the Firelands
      The second Cataclysm patch went live on June 28, 2011 and included Firelands, a new raid with Ragnaros as the final boss, a new daily quest hub (Molten Front) and Dungeon Journal. Interesting loot from the Firelands includes Smoldering Egg of Millagazor that has a small chance to drop from Heroic Ragnaros, Flametalon of Alysrazor which drops from Alysrazor and Fandral's Flamescythe from Staghelm that gives Druid cats a fiery appearance.
      Patch 4.3: Hour of Twilight
      The final major content patch went live on November 29, 2011. Three new 5-player dungeons were released (Hour of Twilight, End Time, Well of Eternity). In terms of system updates, Raid Finder, Void Storage and Transmogrification were added to the game. The final raid Dragon Soul featured Deathwing as the final boss. Interesting drops include Reins of the Blazing Drake, Life-Binder's Handmaiden off Deathwing and Experiment 12-B from Ultraxion.
