Screenshots of the Week: Mounts!

A week or so ago I realized that I was at 97 of 100 mounts for the Mountain o' Mounts achievement. Of course I had to start farming to get up to 100. It was a bit daunting at first, but with the help of my guildies, left over justice points and just plain boredom, I ended up getting the last three mounts I needed in no time!

First, the guild randomly decided to do heroic 10 man ICC. I love doing the old raids--especially in Wrath which was my favorite xpack until a few months ago ;)  Not only did I get to hang out with my amazing guildies, I also got a pretty sweet looking dead dragon mount. The Bloodbathed Frostbrood Vanquisher is the award for doing all the heroic 10 man achievements in Icecrown Citadel. With strategy and a handful of 90's it was relatively easy. We had also started this a few months back so some of us were already more than half way done.


I adore the cloud with this mount, and its size. Other than that the disc looks like a sewer cap
Then I started working towards my Red Flying Cloud. It requires exalted with the Lorewalkers, but don't fret because it is a painless rep "grind." As long as you are level 90, have MoP flying and some time--you can grind this out in about two hours. I found a really amazing guide on where exactly each of the artifacts are that you have to find in order to get exalted with the Lorewalkers. After finding all the items you will get quest items in the mail from Lorewalker Cho that you need to turn into him. Then bang! you're exalted with the Lorewalkers.

With my left over justice points on Xaela I decided to turn my JP into Honor and pick up the Black War Raptor from Raider Bork, the War Mount Quartermaster in Orgrimmar.

You get the Red Dragonhawk for completing Mountain o' Mounts on the horde side, or the Blue Dragonhawk when completed on the Alliance side.

 My friend and I have been working daily on our Cloud Serpent rep so we could get our cloud serpent mounts and so he could get the patterns for the jeweled panthers. These mounts are so cute. Once he got revered with the Order of the Cloud Serpent I started farming materials for the Sapphire Panther. There is also a red one, a jade one and a yellow one. Pretty they are, but also very expensive. Each takes 20 of their respective blue quality gem (so River's heart for Sapphire), an Orb of Mystery (18k gold with guild discount), four living steel, and two Serpent's eyes. This wasn't as much of a headache to get though for me because I had already saved up half the gold and I have two alchemists to transmute the living steel and the River's Hearts.

This was a fun post to put together, I love my mounts almost as much as my companion pets ;)
What is your favorite mount?

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
