Currently on the public test realm, World of Warcraft’s patch 6.2 is being put through it’s paces. Thanks to the guys over at wowhead we can see the new mounts that you will be able to add to your collection when the patch goes live.

Currently there are two Gronnling mounts in game, the Sunhide and Gorestrider Gronnlings, and both were only available for completing the Glory of the Draenor Raider achievement. So both of the mounts have been pretty rare up to now. 6.2 will introduce 4 more Gronnlings into the mix. Wild Gladiator’s Felblood Gronnling, Warmongering Gladiator’s Felblood Gronnling and Primal Gladiator’s Felblood Gronnling will all be obtainable through the next PvP season whilst the Coalfist Gronnling will be yours as a reward for a garrison mission.

Your garrison town hall is also going to get a new vendor who will have two more mounts you can pick up. Rocktusk Battleboar is yours for 10,000 gold whilst the Witherhide Cliffstomper is double that at 20,000 gold.

For those of you with a bit extra money, Blizzard have teased the release of the Mystic Runesaber which will be part of the collection of mounts on the in game store. But more will be revealed on May 13th.

But that’s not all, you’ll also be able to get your hands on three mounts that have the chance to drop from three of the elites that you need to slay for the Hellbane achievement. These mounts are the Warsong Direfang, the Armoured Razorback and the Tundra Icehoof.

So that’s a run down of the new mounts in World of Warcraft 6.2, what do you think? Will you be hitting the arenas to get your Gronnlings? Will you be parting with your gold for the garrison mounts? Or will you just not bother at all? Let me know in the comments below!

    The new mounts look awesome 😀 6.2 is looking like a great opportunity to shore up slipping subscription numbers –

    WOW is trying to reclaim some of the glory days of Cataclysm; the problem is that WOW wants to support the casual gamer more than their loyal fanbase . . . Like any business you must cater to your base or you lose track of whom you are serving. About the best thing to happen to WOW lately is finally allowing in game gold to be exchanges for player time and hopefully this will encourage players to return to the game.

      I think WoW is trying to support a wide range of players, not just “the casuals”. It is pretty interesting to watch what is released from this game. I’ve never seen such a big ship spin on a dime before! Blizzard certainly puts forth the effort into supporting their subscribers.

      WoW has dealt with fluctuating subscriber numbers for many years now and Blizzard are a smart company, I have no doubt that the old faithful with find the future of the game just as rewarding as new players. I just can’t wait to get my hands on one of those Gronnlings!

      I’ve just subscribed to your magazine, looking forward to the launch.

    That’s what I really like about the amazing Blizzard cause they really look over there subscribers and provide them with their needs. And by the way the new mount really looks appealing.
