Goblin Hovercraft Mounts in Battle for Azeroth

Recommended Posts

We found four different tints of Goblin Hovercraft mounts in the game files so far. At least one of them (Xiwyllag ATVXiwyllag ATV) will be crafted by Engineers. All tints may eventually be available from Engineering, similar to Jewelcrafting mounts in Mists of Pandaria.

UPDATE: This mount is probably intended for the final boss of THE MOTHERLODE dungeon.

Another cool mount we found is called PH Goblin Head. It has a built-in drill and a machine gun. It's similar to Mimiron's HeadMimiron's Head, but way cooler! We have no idea if it's going to be available to players, but at the moment, it's listed under mounts.

Holy fucking shit. Now I can finally get something that looks remotely similar to Mimiron's Head since motherbitch Yogg Saron refused to give to me all these years. Unless they make the requirement even harder.

...Engineers.  Again.

They virtually get every useful and unique item in this game. 

Youre not serious right? Tailoring: flying carpet, BS: green corehound, JC: Jewled panther mounts (4 in total), alchemist: ALL THE POTIONS just all of them...

 

Long story short eng got shafted for most of this expansion, nearly no ways to make a stable income, almost all the use items didnt even work in the only raid they were tuned for, basically still brought for only the repair bots, and even then most of the raid you can just mount up. Sorry they get to make a new mount, i guess.

Oh I'm quite serious. Mounts are mounts. Even your example from tailoring was all the way back to Wrath, unless you actually USE creeping carpet.  It's not 'just repairs.'  Read more for 'useful and unique.'  "engineers got shafted."  

Remind me again what a BS brings to the table in a raid?

Engineering 'shafted' repeatedly via:

Reaves, Auto hammer, Failure detection pylon, Jeeves, Wormhole Generator, Mailbox, Goblin Jumper Cables, Food dispenser table...

Older patterns all the way back to Major Recombobulator and Deepdive Helmet...

if u want to pull in the old patterns im still going to go with the fact eng got shafted this exp. Useful and unique alchemy still wins, eng got ANOTHER (trying to drive this non-unique thing here) repair bot. failure pylon is the only raid useful thing currently on the table but wont be used much anywhere else and is unreliable due to the placement requirements, where as the food table isnt used bc almost everything out there is better AND isnt on a CD AND is cheaper to make (see fish plate).

BS got a new mount this xpac and eng got what? a robot that again didnt work for the first part of the expansion, lets not even talk about how your couldnt even complete the robot for the first 4 months because of ridiculous farming requirements. The most unique thing eng got this round was the blingtron game, and we got a similar game with JC bejewled.

Long store short, your original post about eng getting everything is just wrong. Nearly every other prof has a stable way to generate income while also being able to add to your characters daily use (usefulness right here). BS and LW are the only competitors this exp for longevity as the crafted gear just falls off too quick. 

I wont deny eng got some "cool" stuff this expac like the bandage gun or the buoy but really, theyre not used, at all. Theyre all gimics because they couldnt think of anything useful to give eng, And I really wish the turret was worth it but again, its just not worth the time or resources. Sadly they also restrict the mech usage to outdoors and gave it such pitiful numbers it wasnt worth more than a quick laugh never to be used again.

As opposed to what Enchanting ALWAYS gets, enchants, and Alchys ALWAYS get, flasks....  Missing your point there.  Reaves isnt JUST a repair bot, it has like 8 different functions.  "I dont like those functions" not withstanding, they're still there.

aaaaand back to mounts.  How are they 'useful and unique' in ANY environment, unless its a repair mount?  You can get around just as good on a Stormwind Gryphon or an Ellwyn Pony as Invincible or some crafted mount. 

That's still not explaining what professions like BS bring to a raid - meaning 'useful.'  Or even unique since it brings literally zero, whether you " like it" or not.

No.  See above.  Your desire to use it doesn't mean it's not available.

Theeeere is the crux.  Youre not talking USEFUL or unique, just sales now.  Eng doesn't get a lot of sellable stuff?  Nuts!  They were selling goblin gliders last xpac like they were going out of style.  'shucks'.  EVEN THAT IS/WAS USEFUL AND UNIQUE. 

Also what does selling have to do with your daily use of your character?  Unless you go AH every day (I never do,) your re-saleable items are a moot point.  Does that mean I get to discount your arugment because I dont find selling stuff to be 'useful or unique?'

'useful' again...  Many of its perks are useful, whether you want to or not is immaterial.  You think they'd make all the mats cheaper for (and buffs as good or better than the rest for) eng also, since you could pick one profession and eliminate many others?  No.  It'd eliminate numerous professions. 

Eng does a great many things marginally well, and has a little bit of utility for MANY things.  Your desire to use it is immaterial, it's still there. 

UNIQUE, for sure.  Useful is debateable, but I can tell you this, the mats 'costing more' are a far sight better than the mailbox I can't make with tailoring, or the Goblin Glider I can't make with Enchanting, or the food table I can't make with Leatherworking, or the reparibot I can't make with JC...

Wondering if it being a hovercraft will it be able to go over water like the waterstrider. If so will might sell pretty nice to people that dont have a strider moun't and dont want to grind the rep for one.

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.
