Tyrael's Charger Mysteriously Disappearing from Players 11 Years After Promotion Ended

Recommended Posts

Tyrael's Charger, the Annual Pass promotion mount from 2011, is mysteriously disappearing from the players' inventories 11 years after the promotion ended.

Tyrael's Charger Tyrael's Charger was a 2011 promotion mount rewarded to players who subscribed to World of Warcraft for one year. Back then, the eligible account also received a free copy of Diablo 3. The mount has since been removed from the game and is unobtainable in NA and EU regions.

According to a report, a player had their Tyrael's Charger Tyrael's Charger mount removed quite recently after sending in a ticket. They got dismounted in Orgrimmar and no longer have the mount. 

Apparently, the mount's icon won't appear on the action bar unless you previously owned the mount.

Other reports claim their mount was completely taken out of the mount book sometime after Cataclysm/Pandaria.

Bumbletowne said the same thing happened with their Spirit of Competition battle pet back in 2008.

Some were able to get the mount back after it was removed in Cataclysm.

While Blizzard hasn't provided an official statement on the issue, the community came up with their own theories about the removal.

Do you think the mount was removed from those who failed to finish their year-long subscription? Do you own the Tyrael's Charger mount? Let us know in the comments!

I can confirm that I still have my Charger. I finished out the year for the pass. The mount has never disappeared from my journal, yet.

I do think its possible that the mount and D3 were removed from people who cancelled their sub before the year was up. If I recall, the Annual Pass was something you committed to but did not prevent people from unsubbing. I can not recall if you get a warning that you would lose the benefits if you did. I do recall them announcing that 1 million accounts had signed up for the Annual Pass.

I finished my year long pass as well and still have my mount in my inventory. I've not had an issue with mounting on it from my action bar and it's never vanish it's a very loyal companion 🙂

You never know, they might be doing a Bungie....and releasing it via the ingame store, but want people to pay for it, despite getting it via an annual pass.....Bungie is known to remove items from the collections and even the item itself from the slot......some companies can be so disgusting.

I had the mount I messaged a GM and asked them about switching my pre order of diablo 3 to the deluxe edition and if this would this effect my mount at all, he said it wouldn't. After a year my mount disappeared, I then opened a ticket and explained the situation. The GM  replied and give me the mount back, after about another 6 months it disappeared again, so I opened up another ticket and then was told I didn't complete a full year of payments, didn't think this was possible as I was playing wow the whole time, I was guttered about the mount but didn't bother opening up another ticket.

I did the sub at the time.  Also became an enthusiastic forever-Diablo-III player anytime the world is so awful I just plain need to smash some zombies and show the Butcher he can't beat me.

I was just on Tyrael's charger earlier this week, while taking a Broken Isles flightpath from Dalaran, which selects from among your Favorite mounts.

I like having different mounts for different characters, it lets me show attitude.  

What I wonder though;  is this the same bug that at random times "loses" the purchased transmog sets from the store?  They come back, none the worse for wear, on characters where I left things alone, but my Pandaren got annoyed and put on the cosmetic pantsuit's actual extra copy**, so her clothes would stop reverting.

** if you get a cosmetic when you already have got its Appearance collected, the extra is still in your bags, and still an item of its type.

I'm on the same boat. Ever since I read the post about Tyrael's Charger disappearing, I've checked mine and it's still there.

      If you change your Loot Specialization, Zereth Mortis World and Daily Quests can offer different weapons as rewards.
      The game will offer you different rewards from World and Daily Quests on live servers when you switch your Loot Specialization. Here is a short video demonstration video:

      You can utilize Loot Specialization switching to collect transmogs or weapons for your off-spec.

      Note that this only works in Zereth Mortis and it takes approximately 10 seconds for the rewards to change.

      Update: it seems there's only half a mystery here, as I actually just didn't spot the Path of Frost icon, which led to the death. Apologies there. GY port is still a bug though!
      It seems someone's been pouring concrete around Stormwind's oceans, as JuliusLeNightmare faced off against some water and lost, only to be teleported to a very far away graveyard.
      Now while the teleport to the Tirisfal graveyard and the weird invasion of the zone near Stormwind is a well-known phenomenon/spatial anomaly, the transformation of the water into concrete is slightly weirder! Forsaken conspiracy/concrete pouring or weird bug? You decide!

      We've seen many WoW-related Minecraft builds over the years, and this is one of the better ones, as it takes the Alliance capital and transforms it extremely well. After 200 hours of work, @Yunatahel finally finished up and shared the project with the world, so let's take a look!
      Warning: potentially loud twitter video sound.
      Even the official WoW twitter account commented!

      You can also check out a different take on Stormwind (and Orgrimmar) here, and a recent Silvermoon rebuild here.

      After today's reveal of the Priest Dragonflight talent tree, Blizzard went into a little more detail for one particular Shadow talent, as it was a little unclear what it did. Here's the basic tooltip we got today, which will be updated.

      "Idol of Y'Shaarj: Shadowfiend causes you to gain a benefit based on your target's current emotional state."
      Idol of Y'Shsarj (Source)
      Idol of Y’Shaarj will receive a new tooltip as we get closer to Dragonflight. In the meantime though, here’s a breakdown of what it currently does:
      If your target is…
      Above 80% health? → Pride
      You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage while Shadowfiend is active. Enraged? → Anger
      Purges the enraged effect and increases your Haste while Shadowfiend is active. Stunned? → Despair
      You generate Insanity while Shadowfiend is active. Feared? → Fear
      You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage and do not break fear effects while Shadowfiend is active. No conditions met? → Violence
      Duration of Shadowfiend is increased. The priority order is:
      Anger/Despair/Fear → Pride → Violence
      As with everything in the talent tree, these effects are subject to change. I hope this clears up some confusion. We’ll continue monitoring the community’s feedback and we look forward to sharing more Dragonflight details in the future!
