World
of Warcraft players are
as varied as they come. No two are exactly alike coming from different
backgrounds, religions, and countries. However, despite these
differences there is one fact that you will find binds most WoW players
together; we like to ride in style. To achieve this some of us go to
great measures, seeking out those that we personally feel are the best
looking, the rarest, and sure to turn more than a few heads.

With the Cataclysm expansion
winding down and players finding themselves with some extra time on
their hands now is the perfect time to add some amazing new WoW mounts
to your collection. Not sure where to get started with all the mount
choices out there? Check out my own personal top 10 favorite WoW mounts
below where you may find something to peak your fancy.

Mounts

Journeyman (150) Riding Skill Archaeology Ground
Only

If you love visiting those
amazing dinosaur exhibits in the museum and have always dreamed about
that set of bones coming alive then this is the perfect mount for you.
Coming straight out of a Flintstones cartoon (minus some fleshy bits)
this mount is exclusive to those players dedicated enough to take up
Archaeology. To obtain this WoW mount Archaeologists must first get the
project to pop up (a random event) and then obtain 100 rare fossil
fragments which can be quite a task. The good news is that since there
appears to be no minimum Archaeology level needed for this WoW mount,
even low level Archaeologists can get lucky and have the project to
create this WoW mount to pop up. So get out there and as a certain set
of song lyrics instruct; open the door, get on the floor....everybody
ride the dinosaur!

Apprentice (75) Riding Skill Arthas
the Lich King

Heroic Icecrown Citadel Ground
Only

If there ever was a mount
worthy of Arthas, one of the ultimate World of Warcraft bad guys of all
time, this would be it. An undead, yet not skeletal horse, this WoW
mount seems to breathe evil from its nostrils and its mere presence
will surely inspire awe in all who see it. Closly resembling the Death
Knight class mount (which I’ve always been very fond of) this
WoW mount can only be obtained by a raid who takes on and defeats the
Lich King. The catch here is that there must be a player in your raid
wearing Shadowmourne making this mount doubly appealing since you will
get to witness firsthand the end to one of the most epic quest lines
currently in game. After the Lich King is dead your raid will get an
Unsealed Chest. You will be asked to return this chest to Darion
Mograine who will open it and give you the items inside to return to
their respective owners to get your rewards, one of which is this
mount.

Apprentice (75) Riding Skill Guild
Reputation Ground
Only

As you can see this mount is a
giant badass scorpion ready to rumble with anyone who crosses its path.
Thats right ladies and gentleman you read correctly. Giant. Badass.
Scorpion. This mount is so cool that even the Fonze would be jealous.
How can you get this WoW mount for your personal collection you ask?
While its not as difficult as some of the other rare mounts out there,
it still takes some doing to make this WoW mount your own. This mount
can be purchased from your guild vendor only after your guild has
reached level 25 and you have reached Exalted status with your guild.
Sorry Alliance, this is a Horde only mount, however the Alliance
version (Golden King) is *almost* just as cool. So get out there and
get grinding, but remember, once you make this mount your own
don’t lean back as it could prove
deadly.

Artisan (300) Riding Skill Madness
of Deathwing

Heroic Dragon Soul Ground

Flying

I can’t
be the only
World of Warcraft player who has dreamed about mounting up on
Alexstrasza and taking to the skies right? Right?! If you share this
dream with me, now the dream can finally come true if you have the
skill and ambition to take on the challenge to obtain this WoW mount.
Introduced in Patch 4.3, this mount as mentioned previously,
looks much
like Alexstraza in dragon form from her twisted horns to her purple
coloring which makes this WoW mount far more appealing than any other
dragon mount currently in game.. To obtain this mount players must take
on the ultimate challenge 10 or 25 player Deathwing...in heroic mode.
The good news is that like many of the other heroic mount drops this
WoW mount has a 100% drop rate. The bad news? Only one player in your
raid can win this WoW mount so cross your fingers while rolling and
hope for the best.

Apprentice (75) Riding Skill Arthas
the Lich King

Heroic 25 Icecrown Citadel Ground

Flying

Wondering how two Lich King
based mounts ended up in my top five? The truth is, the Lich King just
drops some excellent looking mounts. This winged horse is decked out in
full battle gear complete with skulls and appears to be the resurrected
form of Arthas’s beloved mount Invincible.. With all the
holes in his wings, one mihgt wonder how this horse manages to fly. I
figure, much like Chuck Norris, this WoW mount flies on sheer
awesomeness alone. To make this mount your own you must head into the
depths of Icecrown Citadel and take on the Lich King in 25-player
heroic mode. The mount has a 100% drop rate, but only 1 in your raid
will be able to call it their own so be sure you bring along your lucky
dice or a set of very good friends.

That concludes my list of my
top five WoW mounts. What are some of
you own personal favorite in game WoW mounts? Share them with us in the
