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).

      Shadowlands Profession journals are BoE and can be bought and sold on the Auction House.
      Shadowlands comes with profession journals that can be used once a week to increase your skill by 5 points. The good news is the books are BoE and can be traded on the Auction House.
      The following journals that increase your skill exist in Shadowlands. Archaeology is not included because it has been discontinued in the new expansion.
      Alchemist's Journal Blacksmith's Journal Cook's Journal Enchanter's Journal Engineer's Journal Fisherman's Journal Florist's Journal Jeweler's Journal Leatherworker's Journal Miner's Journal Scribe's Journal Skinner's Journal Tailor's Journal

      Regardless of when it hits, what we've started calling Schrodinger's pre-patch will be the shortest in WoW's history. Battle for Azeroth has held that honor up until a short while ago, but even if we see the patch arrive next week, it will still only last for 3 weeks aka 21 days, compared to BfA's 4 weeks/30 days. Perhaps it makes sense that the longest expansion in WoW history is followed by the shortest pre-patch, but with 9.0.1 bringing so much content with it, it is a shame it turned out this way.
      Expansion Pre-Patch Release Date Expansion Release Date Pre-Patch Duration (Days) The Burning Crusade December 5, 2006 January 16, 2007 42 Wrath of the Lich King October 14, 2008 November 13, 2008 30
      Cataclysm October 12, 2010 December 7, 2010 56 Mists of Pandaria August 28, 2012 September 25, 2012 28 Warlords of Draenor October 14, 2014 November 13, 2014 30 Legion July 19, 2016 August 30, 2016 42 Battle for Azeroth July 17, 2018 August 14, 2018 28 Shadowlands ??? October 27, 2020 ??? We can also compare Battle for Azeroth's pre-patch and Shadowlands' in terms of major features, to see what players could do in the respective pre-patches:
      BfA:
      3-week long story campaign Stat squish Class changes (incorporating artifact traits into the baseline and more) PvP talent changes Profession changes, First Aid removed War Mode Legacy loot mode Small number of character customization options (BE eyes, Orc posture) Shadowlands:
      Scourge invasion event 2-week long story campaign Level squish Class changes New player experience (Exile's Reach) Chromie Time leveling Newcomer chat and guides Allied Races no longer require exalted Many new cosmetic options Character creation screen updated Heirlooms changed Barber shop gender change Legion Artifact transmog non-spec specific Aside from the world quests and other event-related activities, the main draw of the the Shadowlands pre-patch is the leveling, as it's significantly faster than it's been so far (even with the currently active XP buff taken into consideration), and many players are eager to get some characters ready for the expansion launch.
      We're still hoping for the Shadowlands pre-patch to hit next week, putting it at 3 weeks duration, but we've already started preparing for the worst, aka a 2-week run time, which we recently discussed.

      An overview of all Covenant Armor Sets coming in the Shadowlands.
      Blizzard added set bonuses to Covenant Armor Sets in the latest Beta Build 36086.
      All four Covenant sets share the same 3-piece bonus that focuses on out-of-combat regeneration.
      The 5 and 8-piece bonuses focus on Covenant Signature Abilities.

Necrolord Covenant Set Bonuses
      Soul Replenishment (3-piece): Increases your out-of-combat regeneration in outdoor Shadowland zones. While in your Covenant's realm, the regeneration amount is increased. Flesh Infusion (5-piece): While Fleshcraft is active your Primary Stat is increased by 100.

      Soulshape, the Night Fae Covenant Signature Ability, currently behaves inconsistently, and the design intention for it is to work similarly to a Shaman's Ghost Wolf or a Druid's Travel Form when it comes to other abilities canceling the form.
      (Source)
      We’ve seen some questions recently about inconsistencies with abilities that cancel Soulshape and abilities that are usable during Soulshape without canceling it. This is a work in progress.
      The design intention here is that Soulshape should behave similarly to a Shaman’s Ghost Wolf or a Druid’s Travel Form – all activated abilities should cancel Soulshape, with a few exceptions. When work is complete, Shaman or Druid abilities that do not already cancel Ghost Wolf / Travel Form should not cancel Soulshape. Another example to follow is Glide for Demon Hunters.
      As of this latest build of the Shadowlands Beta, Death Knight, Demon Hunter, and Druid abilities are set up appropriately, with the exception of some PvP talents. We’ll make this behavior consistent across the remaining classes in future builds.
      I noticed that Howling Blast did not cancel Soulshape.
      This is a bug that we’re fixing as soon as possible.
      Also a bug: Death Knights might see a strange error message (“Must be in Undead”) if you try to cast abilities in Soulshape right now. We’ll get that fixed.

      Blizzard made some changes to the item level of Soulbind Conduits in the most recent Shadowlands Beta build, and it seems they won't be hard-capped at Rank 5, as we first thought.
      The item level of Soulbind Conduits increases by 13 with each rank.
      Conduit Rank Beta Build 35978 (Old) Beta Build 36086 (New) 1 155 145 2 165 158 3 180 171 4 195 184 5 210 200 6 300 213 7 300 226 8 300 239 9 300 252 10 300 265 11 300 278 12 300 291 13 300 304 14 300 317 15 300 330 It seems the item level of Conduits will be tied to raid difficulties and Mythic Keystone levels. You will also be able to add Conduits to your collection and upgrade existing ones by purchasing  Manifest Aethershunt, a consumable item from Ve'nari in the Maw.
