I’ve just posted a long-delayed update to Warcraft Mounts. A huge, huge thanks to everyone who wrote to ask me if there was a problem and what you could do to help. I really appreciate your thoughts and I’m sorry I couldn’t respond to all of you.
So, what was updated tonight?
- You should be able to make goblin and worgen characters. (I could have sworn I did that before, but I only added them in one of the two places they need to be.)
- I added the Patch 4.2 mounts.
- The Cataclysm page now has a listing for mounts added in Patch 4.2 and Patch 4.3, although the Patch 4.3 mounts aren’t up yet.
- You can now search for only mounts that fly or swim, and the search results tell you at a glance what the mount can do.
- I fixed the image of the poor Winged Guardian but I still can’t get a decent pic of the Flameward Hippogryph.
- I went through all 300+ mounts in the database and updated costs, speeds, and methods of obtaining the mounts. (This was the biggie!)
Some of this work required rewriting bits of the database. Plus I am absolutely certain that I made some mistakes with the corrections. So please, please let me know about anything that looks wonky or information I got wrong.
I have a list of other things I need to do soon as well:
- Add the Patch 4.3 mounts. These should be up tonight.
- Add something about the 310% flight speed – or at least some way to handle the scaling of speeds more elegantly. Hmm …
- Add the data for faction switch conversions. First step is getting it displayed; second step is doing the conversion automatically for site accounts.
- Noting which mounts can be in the Satchel of Exotic Mysteries and putting a list of those somewhere useful.
There’s more, of course – there is always more! – but I think those are the immediate tasks.
Thank you all for being so patient with me!
