THAT IS SO COOL! I think it would be way better if they didn't have a mount anyways.

Very cool indeed. Love the idea of worgen running on all 4.However it seems a bit strange and unfair after Blizzard spent so much time creating new mounts so that both factions had the same ammount of mounts only to remove the balance suddenly.Wasnt there a cool mount artwork for the worgen?Oh well. my main already has 110 mounts. Should have enough for any new mount achievement that blizzard decides to add when I get the Cataclysm mounts and my worgen will have a cool way of walking around.The time to "mount up" should be smaller than normal mounts though as compensation.

Could be the Racial is just the level 20 version, and there will be several awesome flavors of Epic Worgen Mounts (and if all mounts will scale to max training and location, then players can still opt to use Pawsrunning over a mount anyway).

I think this is cool too! But if Worgen ever do get mounts, it should be Evil black sheep! With glowy red eyes and a pair of horns and all that good stuff.Note: I really am serious. Also, I don't have a wow account, I don't plan on getting one till the expansion comes out, so if someone could go and recommend my Black Sheep mount idea in the suggestion forum, it would be greatly apprieciated!

Uh whut...As a long-time playing Tauren and Plains Running advocate ( 5+ YEARS and I guess a bit longer it seems) ... I am a tad ...annoyed.*Steamy fizzle cloud above head*

I say it's lame as all hell. Not only does it reek of taking the cheap way out rather than designing a new model, it screws alliance mount collectors royally. Unless we're able to summon up worgen to ride on if we hit exalted Gilneas rep.

I just want to say this: To me, at least, Running Wild makes a lot more "sense" than Plainsrunning did both lore-wise and mechanics-wise, and any argument of "then just give Tauren Plainsrunning with the same mechanics as Running Wild" ignores half of the problem. Now, I'm a lore buff but by no means an expert, so there is some lore for Tauren Plainsrunners, but outside of mechanics-centered NPCs there for teaching players the ability, I don't see any that would make me conclude Tauren are known for running as fast or with the endurance of, say, a horse... and they certainly don't look the part!

I suppose you figure a bison is "fat" so it wouldn't be able to run long distances or jump more than 20 feet forward from a dead stop either?Seriously. Our culture and their focus on looks. *storms off in a nerdrage*

Thats it Im definitly rolling a worgen.

@Bueas : I couldn't disagree more, but that's neither here nor there

@thebitterfig Running Wild is indeed the new racial "mount" for worgen. Functionally the ability works exactly like a mount. This does mean the worgen are not bringing faction mounts to the table which other Alliance races can access. This is also of course very different from the original Plainsrunning implemented for taurens. We have no plans to try and bring that ability back in any form. Ultimately, we feel Running Wild fits very well with the nature of the worgen race. Rather than getting a physical mount, they get down and sprint on all fours. When you're playing a worgen, it just feels awesome. :) [ Post edited by Zarhym ]note the second sentence and quit your whining before you even know all the facts

@ TharveyyorkshirePerhaps it is you who should take note of the key word in the second sentence:"This does mean the worgen are NOT bringing faction mounts to the table..."Before criticizing somebody else's comment, be sure you have your own facts straight.

Oh yeah, because when I talked about "lore" what I really meant was "looks." It had nothing to do with the whole "tauren at best SPRINT relatively short distances" thing from the games and lore vs wolves' long-distance-running thing. You whining at *me* about the culture is pretty... ironic, I guess.
