Anyone else remember those concept art boars that they showed us a long time ago for Gilnean mounts? Not too overwhelmed by these mounts as they're saddle-less reskins, but I prefer in-game horses without the saddle anyway.Not out of game horses. Chafing. Poor Worgen.

Don't forget, they have fur. They should be okay.

Out of game horses are fun to ride bareback! Provided you either use a blanket or don't mind horse hair in your crotch...

They really ought to just give them shire horses (bigger, bulkier, stockier horses). They'd fit with the Gilnean theme and fit the fact that large worgen need sturdier horses. But no. Sigh. Reskins it is.

The Deep Boars from the concept art? Honestly, I was never sure why the hell that was supposed to be a worgen-appropriate mount anyway. I mean, these Gilneans are all standing around, riding horses when they mount up to go run their dailies or whatever, and the. . . suddenly. . . they get turned into worgen, the earth splits open, and vicious, slobbering BOARS FROM HELL spew out of a crack in the ground. So, Greymane and friends are standing around, seeing this, and they say, "Hey, we have all these horses, but now that we turn into puppy-men all the time, we should be riding THOSE THINGS!!!" Ummmm. . . ok. . . why?Really, I think that's why Blizz ended up going with Running Wild as the Worgen "mount," so Worgen players would have something unique to get them around, since. . . wait for it. . . the traditional Gilnean mount WAS A HORSE! :-pLighten up, people! :-) In any case, when the worgen saw the Deep Boars Blizz had ready for them, they probably ended up thinking "All-Bacon Lunch!" instead of "Mount," so Blizz had to come up with Plan B.

The boar was hideous. Given the Gilnean's and their former nobility it would not have made much sense from a lore aspect for them to ride something such as that. A lot of people, mount collectors in particular, like mounts without armor. It's probably long overdue. Now if they can just "accidentally" take out the sniffing noise we would be all set.

@SnuzzleTotally Agree. Why not a Clydesdale at least. If the picture in the article is the mount, then the worst part is that I don't think these are reskins. I think these are the horses from the WoW TCG item http://www.wowhead.com/item=69215/war-party-hitching-post . I hope I'm wrong.

Is it too much to ask for them to give the ponies a friggin top hat?!
