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

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.

      War corrupted these once-proud creatures. The susurration of their wings now whispers omens of imminent demise.

      Sulfur Hound's Leash
      The Black Empire subjugated these humbled and hateful hounds. Utterly obedient, they still serve the strong.
