World-Wide Shadowlands Mount Poll Stats (US, EU, China): We Have a Winner + Art

Recommended Posts

51869-choose-the-next-shadowlands-mount.
 

We're just about one day away from the closing of the poll for the new Shadowlands mount players will receive for free and the results are looking pretty definitive! We already took a look at the stats for the US servers a few days ago and now we're going global, with today's numbers for the EU, China and updated US ones as well! A whole lot of people voted globally, with just under 93,000 for the EU, and over 150,000 for the US (we don't have the totals for China as their poll site is different).

The poll will be closed tomorrow, September 18th, at 3PM PDT, 22:00 CEST.

It seems inevitable we're going to be getting a Wandering Ancient, unless a whole lot of players jump into the poll in the next 24 hours and boost the numbers for the second ranking Curious Caterpillar or perhaps the Soaring Spelltome. While both US and EU have the Ancient as No.1, the difference between it and second place isn't as big as it is in China, where it has a whopping 42%, more than doubling the numbers of the next two (Caterpillar and Spelltome) at 19% each.

We still don't know what exactly will happen with the other 4 mounts that aren't chosen, but it's actually pretty likely that Blizzard make more than just the winner, so 2nd and 3rd places might matter a whole lot, as they might be the difference between getting the mount in-game or not! And so if you really want one of the others to make it into the game, go and get as many people as you can to vote for them in your region until tomorrow!

And in closing, let's take a look at some of the fan art based on the mounts, starting with our apparent winner:

And then it's on to the probable 2nd place finisher (but that placement is very much up in the air), the Curious Caterpillar:

And finally, for everyone that feels sad that we're only getting one of these awesome mounts, here's winterhail's awesome take on all 5 mounts in one!

Ok, so that "finally" wasn't really final, as now that we pretty much know we're getting the Wandering Ancient, it's time for Game Director Ion Hazzikostas to share his thoughts on it as well:

For me, it’s the Spelltome. We’ve got nothing like it as a mount in the game. All the others, while cool in their own ways, all have mounts that are at least a little bit like them in the game.

Besides, my Vulpera mage would look awesome soaring around on a spell book!

They should make the winner mount for free and the remaining four ones available for purchase? It'd be a pity if many players are p*ssed because their mount didn't make it.

Exactly, Spelltome was my mount of choice. Even as a "platform" mount, similar to some that we've got already, it seemed like a good idea.

With how many fanarts are there, I think some people are setting themselves up for disappointment when actual mount is going to look nothing like this.

Presumably it'll look pretty good though. The store mounts usually do.

They'll definitely use the rest for something at some point.

      You'll have to be a bit more careful with your Torghast runs (at least as much as you can when it comes to disconnects etc. (take not of your router reset times!). Blizzard GMs have confirmed that Soul Ash, the currency necessary for legendaries, will NOT be sent to you in the mail if you don't loot it.
      Players have been having various issues which prevented them from looting Soul Ash, and after ticketing the issue, GMs had this to say:
      It may be the case that GMs are simply swamped right now and can't take deeper looks into the specific runs (as it shouldn't be too complicated to see what a player has cleared and how much Soul Ash they actually looted), so maybe this will change in the future in terms of GMs helping out with tickets, but what's for sure is that Soul Ash will not be normally mailed to you if you don't loot it!

      Oribos is about to get a lot more crowded!

      We’re working on a hotfix that will end the separation between War Mode and non-War Mode players in Oribos.
      After realm restarts, whenever they next occur, you should no longer need to change your War Mode status to see other players who are in the opposite mode in Oribos.

      Well, it seems the Covenants are very set in their ways and even after a fix was found for players that switched early and ran into issues, it just did not go through on live servers. Game Director Ion Hazzikostas has replied on the matter on twitter, and it seems they're trying to figure out why the fix isn't quite working out on live:
      There are many more comments on the issues in the twitter thread so check that out as well, but let's hope those eager switchers won't be locked out of much more of their week and a fix for the fix will be found soon!

      Blizzard is collecting feedback about the endgame zone through an NPC in Shadowlands.
      You will meet Ve'rayn in Oribos during the Ve'nari intro questline. The mob asks you a question about the Maw, specifically, if you find it challenging to survive amidst the oppressive and unceasing horrors within the Maw, probably referring to the Eye of the Jailer mechanic.

      The Shadowlands are truly beautiful and the skyboxes are a big part of that. Luckily for us, we can take one of them with us wherever we go! Well, for 10 minutes anyway. During one of the treasure hunts in Ardenweald, you can get the  Moonsight buff that changes the skybox of any zone you're in, including old-world ones! You'll also snag yourself the weird/interesting Wildseed Cradle mount along the way.

      The mount itself is one of the easiest ones to obtain, as you just need to collect a few tools, and you can see their locations here (or just get the HandyNotes: Shadowlands addon).
