One of the first things to notice is that we’ll only be using two JC slots now instead of three: Here’s an example: Delicate Serpent’s Eye which you’ll be able to cut once you reach 550 skill level.

The BIG thing I’ll be looking forward to are the panther mounts you’ll be able to make at max level; namely the Sunstone Panther, Jade Panther, Ruby Panther and the Sapphire Panther which combine into one very cool Jeweled Onyx Panther flying mount who’s been likened to Voltron. Good news for non-JCs is that they are BoE. I know Coolidge is already in line for the green one :)

The main thing that concerns me at the moment is the price for each one. On the other hand, you won’t see too many of them around so that’s definitely a perk, at least for a while.

This is what they look like at the moment, so far they’ve already had a re-skin.

All the recipes can be purchased from the Order of the Cloud Serpent Quartermaster once you’re exalted with the faction.

So who’s looking to make one or more come Mists? I know I plan to make the set.

There are also two pet designs available from the Treasures of the Vale or the Ancient Guo-Lai Cache (both from doing Golden Lotus dailies).
