I think they should get the option to have a racial mount, AND this. Just like tauren should be able to ride kodos or do plainsrunning again (activated, natch)So can they "mount" in human form? :O That would be something to see!!!

Wild guess here: worgens will have to be in human form to mount up horses, camels, proto-drakes etc.I like this idea too if it is their racial mount, better than the idea of them somehow riding around boars or helboars as some people think.

@followthategg - There was concept art at BlizzCon last year with a strange boar-like beast labeled as the Worgen mount. That's where people were getting that idea.

Yeah, and it was uuuuuugly. I'm kinda glad to see this, and kinda not - as former humans, it makes sense that the Gilneans wouldn't be riding about on their own unique animals. But on the other hand not getting a racial mount is kinda sucky.

That's a Shire Horse I've linked for the Gilnean picture, by the way.I mean, look at Tauren Sunwalkers getting super shiny kodos. The blood elf pally mount versus the Alliance pally mount. Gilneans could have a type of horse and still have a unique and special looking mount.

I'd really love it if they had the option Matthew describes. I'm thrilled for all the folks out there who were really craving something like this and it's not that I don't like the idea, because it's definitely cool. But, I was really really looking forward to getting a more savage looking group of mounts for the Alliance. And, now I'm a little worried that the cool boar mount that we saw a sneak peak of at Blizzcon, won't make it into the game. I'm happy and sad at the same time, it's bittersweet for me, right now. I was really looking forward to seven or eight new mounts for the Alliance. But, I guess it's still possible they'll implement new ones, to keep the number balanced between the factions.

@Snuzzle While not usually in favor of 'moar horsies' I would LOVE a Gilnean clydesdale

For those checking about the number of mounts on Horde vs. Alliance, as far as I can tell, goblins only bring in two new mounts for thier faction, the standard and elite motortrikes.
