Have you had that moment where you realise you won't even use it? But you still want it?

Man, I'd use the shit out of it. LOL. Except in areas where you can fly. Too bad I never got the "flying Anzu" that was a bonus from the WoD Collector Edition.

I wish Blizzard would add the Raven Lord mount in HotS, at least. That way I could get it from shards rather than RNG.

      Ny'alotha Allseer is a N'Zoth-themed mount added to the game in Patch 8.3. It is rewarded from a quest and could very well be the end-of-expansion reward for everyone, who defeats N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty before the next expansion, similar to Legion's Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal.

      The mount shares animations with The Hivemind.

      Here's a preview of Leather sets that will drop in Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid in Visions of N'Zoth.
      Currently, there's some clipping going on with the belt which will be hopefully fixed in future builds.

      Last week, Blizzard added Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren along with encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine to the game. In this week's PTR build, four Death Knight Swords have been added.
      If Allied Races and the Pandaren will indeed be able to become Death Knights in Patch 8.3, it would make perfect sense to revamp the starting zone, because the current one is outdated now that Bolvar is the Lich King.
      Blizzard added four Ebon Blade swords to the game on 8.3 PTR that will likely be rewarded to new Death Knights created in Visions of N'Zoth as part of the overhauled starting experience.

      There's more class changes coming to the PTR and Visions of N'zoth, as Discipline Priests' Schism will only increase damage done from Priest effects only. For other class changes, featuring more Priest tweaks, as well as Druid, Mage, Monk, Paladin and Warlock entries, check out our initial coverage of patch 8.3.
      Disc Priest (source)
      I’ve added the following new fix to the notes in the OP:
      Priest
      Discipline Schism now increases damage done from Priest spells and abilities only. Developers’ notes: This is intended to be consistent with other class cooldowns. Other Patch 8.3 Content:
