Recommended Posts

(The above image is not the official mount, just a potentially similar model we found.)

Update: we have official confirmation and a blue posts on the poll end. Unfortunately no mention on the fate of the other 4 contestants just yet.

Blizzard LogoPoll Closing (source)

Thanks to the hundreds of thousands of players around the world who voted in polls over the last two weeks, we now know which of the proposed mounts you most want to ride in 2021. The winner is:

  • The Wandering Ancient

    • A large and leafy mount, the Wandering Ancient invites you to climb aboard and grab ahold of its branches as you embark on a lumbering expedition.

Our designers will now work on bringing this mount to life, so that all players who purchase Shadowlands will receive it.

And again, thank you for voting!

_____________________________________

The polls are closed and the Wandering Ancient has won, as expected, in both the US, EU and China regions! The rest of the pack are also at the same % levels as previously posted in this thread, with another 5,000 players having voted since we checked earlier today. We're definitely getting a big walking tree as the mount, but hopefully we'll also get some of the others through some other means as well!

    We also have the poll results for China, where the Ancient got to 42%:

      Over 250,000 people have voted in the US and EU alone, with the world-wide total being much higher. And, as we've mentioned before, 2nd and 3rd places will probably also matter, as Blizzard will almost certainly make more than just the winner.

       

       

        It's great to see that many people voting, especially in the last day, as it shows how passionate the WoW community can be. You can also see that in the fan art, which you can check out here, and even some potential similar in-game models here.

        My question is: what is the criteria to get the mount? Simply have purchased Shadowlands? Or do we need an active sub too? I've been waiting for the pre-patch to resub, but I've had Shadowlands pre-purchased since it became available.

        Awesome! They could do really cool stuff with this, similar to the Blossoming Ancient pet, it could change colors throughout the seasons, the mount could be a vendor selling fruit that is equivalent to the Mage food, or maybe it will root itself if you AFK on it. I hope they intent to do something special.

        The root could look like the process the ancients had in Warcraft 3. ?

        many cool Ideas Baha but I doubt anything of those will be on it - would be toooo special - despite of that nice ideas but sadly most of those fan concepts looked much more wow to me.

            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

            You can instantly go from Hated to Revered with the Netherwing faction this week and unlock some really cool mounts!
            Sign of the Twisting Nether increases Burning Crusade reputation gains from combat and quests by 50% this week. The buff is beneficial if you're interested in Netherwing mounts. If you played during the Burning Crusade, you probably know how tedious the grind was back then.
            Normally, you would go from Hated to Neutral with the Netherwing faction when you complete the quest line that unlocks the faction.
            With Sign of the Twisting Nether, you will go from Hated straight to Revered! If you haven't done the quest line yet, now's the best time to do so! You can start the quest line at the crystals south of Warden's Cage in Shadowmoon Valley (Outland), where you need to talk to a blood- elf quest-giver (Mordenai) wandering around the crystals. You can find more information here.
            At Exalted with the Netherwind faction, you will receive one Netherwing mount free and can buy the rest for 200 Gold from the vendor. The available mounts are:
            Reins of the Azure Netherwing Drake Reins of the Cobalt Netherwing Drake Reins of the Onyx Netherwing Drake Reins of the Purple Netherwing Drake Reins of the Veridian Netherwing Drake Reins of the Violet Netherwing Drake Here's a screenshot to better illustrate their appearance.
