I think blizz did this one wrong, hear me out... it would of been way cooler if you got specific underwater mounts like the flying mounts. Imagine riding underwater on a whale or SHARK, how bad @$$ would that of been. WAY COOLER to be mounted on a shark. A SHARK BEST IDEA EVER. Blizz needs to give me a job. Its the little details that make all the difference.

Wait until Maelstrom is released.

Well, I think there are two issues here. (1) There really isn't much to do underwater. There are a few limited quests and so on but the underwater environment is very limited in terms of action. So it seems a lot of work to create water mounts that would rarely be used. (2) What would this do to Druid Aquatic form....it seems that is one of the few advantages to being a Druid and now that ability would be diminished.

@Daniel -I don't know, though. I don't really think it would be too diminished. I mean, you'd still have your own water form. That's something that other classes couldn't purchase for any price or with any reputation. It's something that would still be unique to the druid class and much cheaper than say purchasing an aquatic mount. So, I don't know.

I don't think anyone should be able to get flying mounts, because it would diminish the druid flight form... oh, wait a minute....Much like when flying mounts were introduced in BC along with content that required one, I'm guessing that Blizzard will introduce new underwater content to go along with the underwater mounts

Please don't take offense, but I need to say this - you're thinking of "would've" - a contraction of the two words "would have", not "would of". Also, "that have", not "that of".Ahem. Sorry...[closet grammar nazi]Okay, now then - a whale or shark mount would be epic, but impractical, I feel. It would only be usable in deep water so there would be little need for it except, perhaps, in Northrend? How many quests involve being in/crossing larger bodies of water there? I don't yet have the expansion, so I can't add to this train of thought. If there quite a few, then it would be practical for a water mount in Northrend, perhaps, but impractical anywhere else (unless you want to have races to see who can get the fatigue bar first around Booty Bay).

KeyraMy comment about the specific underwater mount is just a cool idea, but totally useless for most of the time. but still cool. Than again Fairy did say to wait until Maelstrom. Where it would be cool, and practical. If most zones or some are all underwater. So you would need a mount for underwater, but than this creates the problem of underwater breathing. Druids will cry out for joy their underwater form is no longer useless. Hunter's aspect of the fish trainable at level 81. Engineers could make belt clips that allow for underwater breathing that every lvl 80 to 90 would need. Making engineering viable again.

an underwater mount may be completely useless, but who cares as long as its cool? there is tons of useless stuff in wow, and people love it. pets, shirts, tabards, toys, fireworks, etc, etc. i would certainly enjoy just taking a cruise on a giant underwater shark or mana eel. thumbs up from me on the water mount idea, blizzard. on a side note, canoes and sailboats would be awesome, too. or maybe a submarine for engineers?
