A preview of new hyena mounts in Battle for Azeroth.

Our preview of mounts in Battle for Azeroth continues with hyenas. The new expansion adds really interesting mounts to the game. So far, we looked at frogs, vulturesproto-drakes and basilisks. Four tints of the hyena mounts are currently available in the Alpha, with no source indicated yet.

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the movement animation, similar to all of those Acid-DemonDog mounts from argus.. Overall the model is pretty nice though!

I like them, and I hope hyenas as hunter pets get similar updates, but the clipping and animations.. eeeh, I want to like it, but just quite can't see myself using them.

I feel like they need to stop giving creatures these tiny midsections. It just doesn't work, look how the feet all just go through eachother when they run.

When are they gonna make some animations so your toon isn't glued to the saddle and rocking back and forth. At the very least, they could try to make the saddles stationary during running and flying animations so we don't look like we are on one of those playground metal spring rocking toys.

it's almost as if the expansion were still in alpha.

(and yes, I know that we had plenty of mounts that arrived on live servers broken...)

I like how you invalidate your own statement with your second!

The midsection and hindquarter is so tiny it just kind of looks like a head on two legs. The hind legs go way too far under it's belly, if they fix that it'd actually look kind of like a Hyena and it would probably solve SOME the VERY bad clipping.

      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?

      "A true union of minds."

      As with every major content update, it's time for new secrets! According to the latest tweet by Muffinus, this appears to be the most elaborate puzzle ever, as the image depicts Celestalon who is responsible for the Endless Halls puzzle.
      Placeholder for tweet 1071167789354774528 Currently, we don't know how the mount works but there's an interesting spell "Joined Hivemind" related to it that suggests multiple passengers and each passenger increases its mounted speed by 10%.

      Hi everyone. You might want to know that although there are already many Discord servers out there related to classic wow, there is a more local one specifically for Europe, with already nearly 400 members. Feel free to join fellow european classic lovers and vanilla old-timers while waiting for summer!  (https://discord.gg/SdVt9zN)

      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.
