Honeyback Harvester (Bee Mount) is Alliance-Exclusive

Recommended Posts

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).

      Two top Arena World Championship players, including a BlizzCon champion and a 2nd place finisher, received suspensions yesterday, one permanent, as both were found to be using Real Money Trading.
      First off we have Emil "Zeepeye" Ek, who won last year's EU side of the AWC and had previously finished in 2nd place during the 2019 AWC BlizzCon finals, and is now suspended for 6 months. The RMT was related to "coaching", which could be interpreted as boosting by some, and Ek had a lengthy explanation of what happened and why:
      Secondly, a previous 1-year suspension was made permanent, as Martin "Loony" Moazzez (who shared the EU AWC 2020 win with Zeepeye and had previously won BlizzCon 2014) also participated in Real Money Trading and coaching. There's a lot more to his story, as the initial 1-year suspension actually wasn't for RMT but more complicated and, well, worse:

      What would be the worst thing that could happen in the Shadowlands? The Jailer winning and remaking the way death works? Destroying the universe to build a new one? Sylvanas getting redeemed and us having to suffer through her being on our side again? Well, it turns out 9.1 might be bringing something MUCH darker on us than all of that combined.
      Sarazzan made this horrifying discovery when looking at the ending of the 9.1 cinematic, as a certain glowy light at the end of the chains over in Korthia is hinting at... terror:

      Source.
      So get ready for a return to the CHAMPIONizing and WOONZing ways of BfA, as everyone's least favorite Christmas tree ornament might be coming back. When you think about it it makes sense too, as the instant he wasn't needed to save Azeroth anymore some very smart people decided to banish him into the deepest depths of the Shadowlands, but alas the Jailer just hates us SO much that he's bringing him back.
      Here are some of the measured and very accurate comments from the post:
      And just in case you forgot why players are scared to death of him, here are a couple of reminders:

      We have two pretty great videos of Priests taking matters into their own hands, as Leap of Faith "helps" the DPS do the mechanics properly... and sometimes not so much.
      The first clip is a truly amazing example of "healers have to do everything"/babysitting the DPS, as this Priest took control and completed the Lady Inerva mechanic using a puppet:
      However, there's always a flip side to things, as this Priest had the same idea, with a somewhat different outcome on Stole Legion:

      Bellular had the opportunity to interview Steve Danuser and Morgan Day. Interview highlights include deliberate parallels between Anduin, and Arthas, the story of Garrosh, Ner'zhul, and Yrel in Shadowlands, and more. Check out our recap to learn more!
      Interview Highlights
      There are some deliberate parallels between Arthas and Anduin in the new cinematic, but also differences. For a brief moment, Anduin was horrified about what he's done before the Jailer's power of Dominion took hold of him again. That didn't happen with Arthas. It appears we're going to learn more about Ner'zhul in Shadowlands. Garrosh Hellscream also has a small role to play in Patch 9.1. They don't want to reveal any spoilers, though. We will also hear more about Yrel, who wielded the light's power to destroy Mag'har Orcs in the Allied Race unlock scenario.

      We've skipped one week due to BlizzConline, but we're back checking out the most popular DPS specializations for Mythic+ in Shadowlands Season 1!
      DATA RELIABILITY: The data used in this article comes from benched.me. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7 plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather the data.
      This Week's Affixes
      Tyrannical Raging Quaking Prideful Total Runs Recorded
      We've looked at the total runs recorded for each DPS spec during the 10th week of Mythic Season 1. Based on the numbers, we filter out the most popular ranged and melee DPS specializations.

      Most Popular Melee DPS for Mythic+
      Unholy Death Knight remains the most popular melee specialization for Mythic+ with more than 2 million runs accumulated so far in Shadowlands Season 1. Havoc Demon Hunter is second, and in third place, we have Outlaw Rogue (up from 4th position).
      The least popular melee specialization is Survival Hunter. The spec swapped places with Assassination Rogue.
      1st: Unholy Death Knight - 2,097,235 runs 2nd: Havoc Demon Hunter - 1,637,153 runs 3rd: Outlaw Rogue - 1,609,677 runs 4th: Retribution Paladin - 1,567,321 runs 5th: Windwalker Monk - 1,484,006 runs 6th: Arms Warrior - 1,306,343 runs 7th: Fury Warrior - 1,112,379 runs 8th: Subtlety Rogue - 975,157 runs 9th: Enhancement Shaman - 841,074 runs 10th: Feral Druid - 377,938 runs 11th: Frost Death Knight - 346,118 runs 12th: Assassination Rogue - 100,465 runs 13th: Survival Hunter - 98,163 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
      The meta starts kicking in at around +16, where most specs start losing their share of representation to the metaclasses. Some non-meta specs stay stable in mid-range keys and only begin disappearing at higher levels.

      Share of Melee DPS Specs at Each Key Level (Weekly Top 500 Runs)
      To see how the meta changes during the season, we sample the top 50 runs for each dungeon (a total of 6,000 keys) for each week. Next, we count the number of times each spec appears in the weekly top 500 sample.
      The data has a zig-zag quality to it. Spec numbers go up and down each week, which is the Tyrannical/Fortified split effect. On Tyrannical weeks, pushers are likely to bench their meta-class mains and play non-meta alts.

      Most Popular Ranged DPS for Mythic+
      Nobody is going to beat Marksmanship Hunter. The spec has accrued almost 5 million runs in Season 1 so far. Balance Druid is second with over 3.2 million runs. Fire Mage occupies 3rd position.
      The least popular spec is Demonology Warlock, with just +30k runs in 2 weeks.
      1st: Marksmanship Hunter - 4,902,342 runs 2nd: Balance Druid - 3,262,862 runs 3rd: Fire Mage - 3,077,748 runs 4th: Shadow Priest - 1,897,133 runs 5th: Affliction Warlock - 1,434,623 runs 6th: Beast Mastery Hunter - 1,275,258 runs 7th: Frost Mage - 1,120,937 runs 8th: Destruction Warlock - 875,969 runs 9th: Elemental Shaman - 853,552 runs 10th: Arcane Mage - 432,427 runs 11th: Demonology Warlock - 305,421 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
