We really need a chariot mount. I'm surprised we haven't seen anything similar yet.Granted, none of the factions are romanesque in their culture (includes playable character factions and other factions), but I could totally see a blood elf chariot, pulled by giant mana wyrms.

There isn't anything romanesque, but come Cataclysm and we'll have an egyptian themed locale. And Egyptians used chariots too... I'm just saying :)But the meme "Do Want!" doesn't even begin to cover how badly I desire to ride on such a mount as was described }:D

Oh yeah, I forgot about Uldum. Perhaps there will be a special faction where you can grind for a chariot, driven by sphinxes with wings or something.

What about a multipassanger carriage , flying ofcourse, that would be pulled by several hyppogryphs? Now THAT would be pure awsome!

Chariots aren't remotely "Romanesque". Every military power in antiquity used chariots as prior to the spread of the stirrup (out of asia in the 5-7th century AD) that was the only militarily effective way to use horses.You can ride a horse without a stirrup but it is nearly impossible to fight from the back of a horse without them*. Prior to the stirrup cavalry were either bowmen or really just used for shock value.* Without stirrups you stay on the horse by either holding the saddle with a hand or using your legs to grasp the horses chest. Neither of which is conducive to swinging a sword around or using a lance.

I have to say I think chariots are unlikely; and I personally hope they don't happen. They'd be too large. Mammoths are already too large, and a chariot would have to be even larger in terms of its ground area (although it need not be so tall).

^ the stirrup was not necisarry, mongols and such nations never used the things, and undoubtably some of the best horsemen in the world. however the chariot was widely used by most races across europe and asia in battle, hence why chariot+rogue driver+hunter should be implimented now!! noone cna drive like a rogue!ps ignore spelling, dyslexic in disguise =)
