It’s Melbourne Cup day today! I’ve got about 30 minutes then I’m going to go put on a party dress and eat cheese and fruit while I watch the race. So, in the spirit of Melbourne Cup, and horse racing in general, lets talk about World of Wacraft horses. Ok, “mounts”. Whatever. Here are, in my opinion, the three coolest horses in World of Warcraft.
3. Swift Alliance Steed
Isn’t he pretty? I think I could almost look as good as a Paladin riding around on a mount like this. The reason I like Swifty so much is because he looks like your regular Alliance horse, but with lots of shiny bells and whistles. He’s understated. But he’s swift!
2. The Headless Horseman’s Steed
More evil than the meanest Warlock on your server’s mount, and less spiky, this is the only horse in the game that than can fly.
Well I think you can get a Reindeer during the holiday season, but that’s kind of lame. Until they implement unicorn mounts in World of Wacraft, I just don’t think you can beat this guy. I’d have pegged him for the number 1 spot if my roommate didn’t own him. That removes some of the, shall we say, mystique?
If I had this mount, I think I would spend all my time traveling to and from places in Northrend impersonating the Headless Horseman’s evil laugh. AHhahahahahahahaha!
1. The Fiery Warhorse (aka Midnight)
This poor creature has lived (or existed, since he’s undead?) with his master Attumen the Huntsman in an abandoned tower for god knows how long. Take Midnight out on the field and I bet he’d let loose. If he was my horse I’d treat him especially well. And hope that he has forgotten the number of times I went at him with a sword.
I, of course, don’t have any of these horses. I have my old faithful palomino. Now, if only I could come up with a suitable racing name for him…
If these three decided to race, who do you think would win?
