Will Alliance players ever be able to get their hands on a Wolf mount? :(Hordies can get horse, sabers, and ram mounts. I guess you could count the Mammoths as Elkks...same animation. (Headless Horseman's Mount, Fiery Warsteed, Swift Brewfest Ram, Swift Zulian Panther/Tiger-retired, Elekk-Mammoth, Mechanostrider-Hawkstrider.) I mean the Alliance can get the Swift White Hawkstrider, Swift Razzashi Raptor/Fossilized Raptor (current or retired one), Great Brewfest Kodo/Wooly White Rhino and whatever ones I'm missing. BUT NOT A SINGLE WOLF MOUNT. T_T

Hawkstriders aren't actually reskins of Mechanostriders but rather a... Well, I would say UNIQUE type of mount, but Forest Striders now share the same skeleton and sound . Mechanostriders remain exclusive to Alliance races as Wolf mounts are unique to Horde.If I was a betting man, I'd say that there'll be neutral wolf mounts before there'll be neutral Mechanostriders. Until then, just pester the nearest Worgen for a piggy-back ride.

Actually, Elekks and Mammoths have very different animations! Elekks have a smooth stride, while mammoths have a very bouncy stride due to their shorter hind legs and smaller hind-end overall. It's actually why I have no issues with Mammoths, but I can't STAND riding an Elekk... All you see is alternating flexing elephant butt muscles...

So Elekks are unique to the Alliance. This makes them the equivalent of... Turbo-Trikes.Hmm. The more I look at things, the more I think that the Horde is getting gypped.
