Pandaren Mount – My 2 Copper

This will be short and simple.

I think the Pandaren Mount should be a small 2 wheeled cart pulled by a donkey/mule and on the cart is a large keg of brew and the Pandaren or any of the other races ride on top of the brew keg.

I contacted a friend that is an artist and got them to sketch up the image below.

So this post got a little messed up, not sure why it lost many of the edits I made, I think some of the Jetpack features were acting up.  Anyway the change of a Donkey/Mule to the Ram/Yak like creature from the starting zone above was suggested by Ginny and I thought was a better idea since it seems like it will be a creature found in Pandaria or at least the Pandaren start zone.

Additionally I think even if this was not the Pandaren mount it would be cool as a special mount, maybe even a new Brewfest mount that is bought with tokens, Not the Random Drop PoS system we have now for Brewfest mounts.  The cool think would be that the Beast of Burden changes based upon race of the character riding it.  It would be replaced with the racial mount of the character.  Even cooler would be to make it a special 2 part mount that you select which mount you already own pulls the Keg.


Updates after WoW Insider linkage, the artist Ginny wanted to update the design a bit with these 2 pictures. These are thumbnails linking to her picture postings of them.

Also either there will be a Yak mount of some kind in MoP or we are getting Pony Trolled ala GC via this one tweet.
