This week’s Blog Azeroth Shared Topic comes from Dragonray who asks:

What are your top 5 mounts or just the ones you go to all the time because you like the way they ride? What are the ones you really dislike and can never bring yourself to use – does it rub against your collecting nature (if you have one) to buy all the mounts even though you know you will never use them?

Cymre has always loved her Red Flying Cloud as a discipline priest so you’d be hard pressed to see her on anything other than that. It’s so compact I never get stuck in doorways or overshadow quest npcs, etc. and it just looks cool so what else do you need really?

On the other hand, I tend to spend a lot of my time as shadow these days, particularly on the Timeless Isle so her mount has changed a few times recently. I was having a great time in my Sky Golem, Enchanted Fey Dragon (a gift from Cool) and my Winged Guardian from Tome.

Like many, I fell in love with the Enchanted Fey Dragon as soon as I saw it but I still wish you could auto equip a pair of googles (like a spell) whenever you mount her since it almost looks like she’s wearing goggles herself.

More recently, I’ve been riding the Jewelled Onyx Panther - my latest acquisition.

My other toons have their favourites too.

Tallys has been using her Headless Horseman Reins for years but on occasion you’ll see her riding a bear (a gift from Navi).

Astril on the other hand loves her spectral steed and iceberg when she’s spending time on the water.

Of course my Pali engineer loves her Thalassian Charger and Sky Golem…

while my druid remains content with flight form.

One day I’ll even buy that yak I found way back on the beta.
