The Night of the Wilds

I completely forgot about the class mounts during my little break. So guess my surprise when I received a new class quest today, directing me to my order hall!

Back at Trueshot Lodge was a letter from Odyn:

“The Night of the Wilds is upon us.
Tonight, we will feast in the honour of the beasts of legend.
And they will rise once more in the Fields of the Eternal Hunt.
One among us will set out into the fields to put their spirits to rest once more.
My herald awaits you, hunter, if you will join us.”

A Val’kyr waited for me outside the order hall, ready to take meΒ to the Fields of the Eternal Hunt.

Once I had arrived, everyone gathered around the fire for a great feast. Odyn explained that it was the Night of the Wilds, when the spirits of legendary beasts would rise once more. One hunter would be chosen to put them to rest again, and tonight I had been given the honour.

I was then sent off into the night to track down the legendary beasts…

Once their spirits had been put back to rest a strange creature appeared… Odyn explained that it was Haukenulfir, the legendary wolfhawk. She used to roam the world back when it was new, but hasn’t been seen for thousands of years. Until now.

Intrigued by my kinship with animals, Haukenulfir wanted to test my strength to see if I was a worthy companion. And after proving myself worthy to her, her spirit became bound to mine!

Another loyal animal has joined my little group, and Chalgrima and Hati have a new friend to play with!

Have you got your class mount yet? Do you like it?

  1. Oh, I adore this mount so much; it is my favorite of all the class mounts.

    I’m not fond of my class form, for various reasons; its another form instead of a mount (so it overrides the flight form), the colours are based on race, it has no running or interacting emotes, and it cant be used in no-flying zones. It seems so unfinished. But, oh well πŸ™‚ At least I could revert it back to the original flight form instead.

    The Hunter mount is so amazing. A very well executed model that looks good in the air and on the ground, I think.

    Congratulations and thank you for the wonderful post; nice to hear and see a little about how you got it πŸ™‚

    1. It’s my favourite too, understated but powerful which really suits the hunter class fantasy. Such a shame about the druid class form 😦 But at least you’ve got plenty of other nice druid forms to make up for it, like the orca and stag!

      1. Yep, totally! Orca all the way πŸ˜€ Wonder how long it would take me to level a Hunter though and do all the requirements for that mount..Oh I like it so much.

    1. It was a nice little scenario! I enjoyed that I had to use hunter tracking too. It was such an essential part of playing a hunter in early WoW, but I haven’t really used tracking for years now.
