Mounts

Glacial Tidestorm

Though she commands a variety of magical powers, Jaina has always been most proficient at summoning powerful elementals of water and ice.

  • Source: Jaina Proudmoore (Mythic)
  • Zone: Battle of Dazar'alor

The mount currently has the same model like the Shaman Class Order Hall mount from Legion. Hopefully, i's just a placeholder.

Siltwing Albatross

One of the rarest of birds seen on the islands of the Great Sea, and a prized possession amongst traders, if they can capture it.

  • Vendor: Captain Klarisa // Captain Zentaga (Dubloon Traders)
  • Zone: Tiragarde Sound // Zuldazar
  • Cost: 1,000 Seafarer's Dubloons

I had hoped the mech parrot would be a drop or something purchasable with gold, but when there's a matching pet, it's a store mount. A very beautiful and awesome one, though most likely a store mount regardless.

As for other things, it's interesting to see Ashvale and Sylvanas scheme. Could be interesting.

And the new heirlooms looks interesting. Especially the cloak, depending on whatever or not you're a levelling tank.

      Allied Races and the Pandaren will be finally able to become Death Knights in the near future, as Blizzard added creature textures together with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Darion Mograine in 8.3 Build 32151.
      It seems Bolvar is going to forge a new line of Death Knights in Patch 8.3. Death Knight textures for all Allied Races (Including Lightforged Draenei) have been added to the game along with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Highlord Darion Mograine, who's likely going to narrate the new Death Knight intro. There's also an encrypted map of an area, which is likely the one of Icecrown Citadel.

      Datamined Pandaren Male Death Knight Texture
      It seems there's going to be a brand new Death Knight intro, but at this time, we don't know if the Allied Races are going to start at level 20 or 55 and how that's going to affect Heritage Armor acquisition.

      In this week's 8.3 Build 32151, Wrathion's Legendary Cloak has been renamed and updated to have a higher base item level.
      Experimental Blacktalon Shroud is now called Ashjra'kamas, Shrould of Resolve and the base item level is up to 445.
      The cloak's effect (Blacktalon's Experimental Protection) reduces the Sanity loss from all sources by a percentage, which is mandatory for completing Horrific Visions, as your Sanity bar depletes and the reduction allows you to stay there longer and earn better rewards. You'll upgrade the item level of the cloak with Horrific Cores up to a maximum item level of 475 at Rank 15.
      Rank Item Level Reduces Sanity by % 1 445 5% 2 445 8% 3 445 10% 4 445 13% 5 455 25% 6 455 28% 7 455 30% 8 455 33% 9 455 35% 10 465 50% 11 465 53% 12 465 55% 13 465 58% 14 465 60% 15 475 75% You can check out our initial preview of the cloak here and we've updated the article to include the latest changes.

      At Ranks 5 and 10, the cloak gets an enhanced appearance that is added to your transmog tab.
