Honeyback Harvester (Bee Mount) is Alliance-Exclusive

Recommended Posts

38361-battle-for-azeroth-pre-patch-notes

Horde players won't be able to use the 8.2.5 Bee mount, and it appears the mount is intended to be used by Alliance only.

Signs of the Bee mount are dating back to last year's BlizzCon when Blizzard teased it. Players have been hard at work since the release of Patch 8.2 searching for the mount but to no avail. In the first 8.2.5 PTR build, we learned that the Bee mount is indeed coming and based on recent Mount Journal entries, it appears that it's not going to work like Kua'fon's HarnessKua'fon's Harness, where both factions can use the mount. PH Bee MountHoneyback Harvester is exclusive to the Alliance faction, and Horde players won't be able to mount it.

In Patch 8.2.5, Alliance players will earn reputation with a new faction, and at Exalted, they will be able to get the Honeyback Harvester mount.

There are all kinds of mounts in the game that are faction specific. Having the honeybee as one of them is nothing new! Just look at all the new mounts that you could buy from the factions in BFA. They are faction specific!

This crap right here is why nobody takes Icy Veins seriously and why 100x more people post on WoWHead. Moderators need to actually moderate their content and not let people like this exist on the site spreading hate and negativity.

I've only seen it happen only a few times, it's rather calm here. MMO-Champion is where things are really bad, that's why there is no point in commenting there, as sensible posts get quickly buried under tons of nonsense and shitposting. Simply more people are visiting MMO-Champion and WoWhead, as these are better known sites, with WoWhead basically having monopoly on what they are doing without any competition.

I don't see any problem with this mount, as it kinda serves as counterpart to Kua'fon.

Yeah Alliance always gets the short end of the stick . Blizzard's biggest cry baby casuals are alliance , was no surprise here. All in fairness though they did have to pay for the faction motorcycle since they lost the contest so it's only fair that the stuck up salty babies that are out numbered 10/1 that they finally get to ride in all it's glory the CHEERIO BEE. Just wait Blizz will give Horde a superior mount that rivals even the Alliance themselves.

Oh give me a break, you’re acting like the spoiled brats you are in the horde. Clearly alliance is getting a really bad time in the general experience of the game, 3 horse mounts while horde get 3 unique ones for the BFA faction reps. The outnumbering is a legit issue in warmode for the alliance, and by the way you’re acting, you haven’t even seen what it’s  like on the other side.

 The mythic raiding scene is so one sided it’s a huge joke, elitist attraction to racials for the tiny boost in dps is awful; and the popularity because of it has had everyone roll horde for either that or blood elves. the lack of high elves after alliance has asked for them for so long is another spot to the face. These are all legit complains. But you guys on horde just say suck it up, “alliance aren’t allowed to complain” but horde can freely complain for finally not getting something: after Ion has spoiled y’all so much in story and items. 

Just look at what you typed, people are so blind to the horde just because of two things, blood elf’s and racials, take those away and the horde is nothing.

It's just a mount I'm sure sometime in the future Blizzard will use the same skeleton to create a similar set of mounts.  The Alliance get the Bee mount via a chain quest while the Horde get a choice of Pterrodax or Direhorn via chain quest this expansion.  It's the same concept when the Winterspring Saber and the Venomhide Raptor back in the day where each Faction had their own set of tasks to perform to achieve them.

As far as Warmode I instantly took it off once 8.2.5 hit the servers due to problems of sharding and severe imbalance for both sides.  I was either going to have a quick 30 minutes doing dailies or a horrid 2-3 hrs getting camped non stop when I have other better things to do in the game.

Dunno, but you're always targetting the poster personally instead of being constructive to the discussion.

What is wrong with you as a human?

 

Anyway, faction-only mounts increase my feel of immersion. With all the toys and cross-faction mounts it is almost mandatory to have name-tags enabled, as it can be really hard to tell friend from foe. Personally none of my characters will be using the Bee mount, but I'm happy for those who have been waiting for this. I had 1 horde character in Vanilla. Abandoned it and only used it for Season 1 arena. Alliance is my home. I am specially making a goblin, just so I can use the 333333g Toad mount, as it won't suit any of my regular characters. Not telling Horde should make a new character, but it's a viable alternative.

You know nothing about me. And the fact that you insult people over the internet only makes you a weak child.

And ironically in your reply it is you who is jumping to assumption about someone's character and then insulting them.

Simply hillarious.Oh let me  guess whats next, you are gonna report me like the last person that pointed out your flaws?

Just asking out of quriosity. Are you ok? It's ok to cheer for your faction, but at this point I'm wondering who hurt you so badly that you have to act like this. Take care and be safe.

My brother-in-law is a beekeper IRL and he plays horde. But he's probably the only kind of person who may ever have a problem with this decision. I don't see how anyone else's roleplaying fantasy can include mounting a ...bee.

The point being that the Horde WON the motorcycle mount. Did the alliance do something to win the bee? Nope. That would make it seem more like, “everyone gets a trophy!” It wouldn’t matter who wins or loses. There would be no point to the contest then.

As a Goblin Rogue, I'm glad they are giving this *filtered* to the Alliance as an exclusive; I hope they give more cutsie BS to Alliance Only.  Stuff like this makes it much harder for the player base to cry about Horde Favoritism.

Give them an Alliance Only cutsie happy fun time Bee Helmet Transmog too.

I hope you are trolling, otherwise that's weird coming from someone playing a cartoony race used mostly as a comic relief. You find giant insects to be cute? Ok...

You are right. When I see A mightly paladin charging forth on his small bee mount the first thought that comes to mind is  badass.

Goblins run the criminal underworld of Azeroth.  I play a Rogue... the Thief Class... that seems pretty on the nose.

Also, all of the Warcraft Graphics are cartoony; I'm not sure what game you've been playing.

That's the point, and goblins especially, since they usually act as a "funny race". Criminal underground? There are groups like Syndicate, Blackwater Raiders, various other criminal organisations and pirates, none of them are Goblin-specific. Bilgewater Cartel is a trade organisation, albeit often not playing fair, like most Goblins, but they are not running any underworld (and don't have to, since Gallywix profits from being in the Horde).

      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?

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.

      Blizzard is working on some hotfixes for Queen Azshara that will go live with maintenance in each region. The final boss of The Eternal Palace will be nerfed soon so that more guilds can fill the Mythic Hall of Fame one week ahead of Classic launch.
      The faction imbalance is quite strong with this one because only 5 Alliance guilds have defeated Mythic Azshara so far. On the Horde side of things, we've got 30 guilds that downed the final boss. Hopefully, more Alliance guilds will down her after the nerfs, so that cross-realm raiding will be enabled soon.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re working on the following hotfixes today. We intend to apply to these changes to the Queen Azshara encounter with weekly maintenance in each region:
      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. Arcane Wards now energize slightly slower for smaller raid sizes on Normal and Heroic difficulties. Fixed an issue that allowed Arcane Vulnerability to apply when the victim wasn’t in line of sight of Queen Azshara. We’ll update this post if there are any further changes, and when the hotfixes go live.
