Revision of Mountain o' Mounts from Wed, 2009-09-23 19:42

eric's picture

World of Warcraft offers a variety of mounts for the different races of Azeroth. Humans, for example, generally ride horses, and Orcs tend to favor their trusted wolf mounts. A mount is a special type of permanent pet that a player can own. Using one requires the riding talent, and with extensive training, riding specialists will be able to use mounts not generally available to their particular race.

More than mere status symbols, mounts allow players to travel over land more quickly than on foot. When a player is mounted, he or she has full control over the mount. To avoid exploiting monsters, players cannot attack while mounted. Also, monsters are unable to attack mounts. Instead, when a player is mounted, all attacks and damage are directed at the player and not at the mount. If a player dies while on a mount, the mount will "unsummon" and be available for "resummoning" once the player reenters the world of the living.

@ Silvann and Jiyambi - I think I got the time in the weekend to create the reward list along with a table of content, it's clearly needed alot.

@ Shinke - I've written a guide for the Black Knight quest chain, check it out: Eric's guide to the Black knight quest chain

Awesome guide. A rewards

Awesome guide. A rewards section would be nice, as I'm interested in the Argent Hippogryph mount. Is that the guide I should follow to get that mount? Any idea on how long would take me? WoWhead's comments seem to give different answers...

It depends on what point you

It depends on what point you are at in the tournament progression. If you already are exalted with your faction, you can get a total of 10 marks a day (I think). If you aren't exalted, or don't run HToC, or don't do TFA due to not finding a group, you get less. This is probably why you've seen different answers for it.

To Eric - a rewards section would definitely be nice, and as this user points out, perhaps a note at the top of each section of progression through the tournament as to how many marks/day you can earn.

Eric, another awesome

Eric, another awesome guide.

One thing I noticed, however, your achievement links go to wow-pro.com, not wowhead like they should. And also on the map you have the TotC 10/25 entrance in the wrong spot.

Other than that, I can't wait to use this guide for my daily grind!

Thanks for the nice feedback, I changed the URL Smiling

*facepalm*, I was thinking of Trial of the Grand Crusader, probably because I've never been in any of them, thank you for noticing.

Noticed another 'thing.'

Noticed another 'thing.' Before you can accept and do the Chillmaw quest, you must do the Black Knight quest chain. I noticed this as I started the daily grind section and couldn't pick it up.

Looks awesome, Eric! A few

Looks awesome, Eric!

A few things I noticed. First, I suggest you include the three daily quests that become available once you reach exalted with Sunreavers/Silver Covenant. I also suggest you include the Black Knight quest chain eventually - yeah it just gives Argent Crusade rep, but it's part of the Tournament story and it seems like it should be included.

Second, the note for the "Among the Champions" vs. the "Battle for the Citadel" - you note that Among the Champions is hard, but Battle for the Citadel is just as hard and harder because there are other mobs all around that can agro. The notes I'm referring to are in the final section, the "Daily Grind".

Anyway, overall great job as usual!

EDIT: A list of items available (why you'd bother even grinding this), Achievements available, and possibly a table of contents would also be very nice additions.

Thanks for the kind words,

Thanks for the kind words, the guide was released a bit in a hurry, so I'll be adding a few things when I got the time, so far I have added an achievement section, more to come Smiling
