Or what if they're adding these as alternatives for deathknights. ? But they may be faction specific because . . .well, come on., blue and red only? sounds an awful lot like the war mammoth mounts. And you forget about warlock's specific mounts! Can't forget us!

If I remember correctly, there are not one but TWO Warlock-style mount variants available through drops (counting the seasonal Hallow's Eve mount from the Headless Horseman). Which lines up with the availability of tigers, raptors, kodos, rams, and the Baron's mount for the Undead horses (though his is ALSO slightly model-changed).

@onetruepigThe only thing those mounts really have in common with Dreadsteeds are the flaming hooves, but otherwise they stand apart.That said, it would be cool if they tossed in some alternatives for Warlocks -- Death Knights may be getting new choices sometime soon, and Paladins already have three different epic mount styles, including the Blood Elf mount and the Alliance mount. It remains to be seen if Tauren Paladins will use Blood Elf mounts or not, though...

If dwarves and draeneis can ride the human horse mount, it would make sense that they'd give tauren paladins the same thing as blood elves. But considering the tauren's size they might not... though if they don't, I'd like to see paladin mounts at least change for the race that rides them. As in give a paladin draenei a holy elephant instead, dwarf a holy ram, blood elves, a holy chocobo...etc.

I would be so sad to see the Blood Knight mount change. I feel its really iconic for the Blood Knight theme- that they're stealing from the light, stealing from the traditions of the humans, forcing things to their will. This involves adopting other human traditions, including proper horses. I wouldn't be so bothered if Tauren were special and got their own mount. Their order is a late order of paladins, after all. They figured things out for themselves. They broke the code of sun magic, and they should be able to figure out holy Kodo or whatever. The three Alliance races with paladins seem to share an order, while I'm certain Tauren and Blood Elves have a totally different philosophy towards... well, everything, except perhaps the Alliance.
