Citing a “spirit of unity” with World of Warcraft players through a difficult year, Blizzard announced on the site that it is going to be creating a brand-new mount to add to the game when Shadowlands arrives. The best part? Not only will players have a say in what this mount will be but everyone who buys the expansion will get the “sparklepony” (or whatever it is) for free.
There’s currently a poll up offering the five mount ideas (described only with no images or artwork). Players can vote on their favorite concept through September 18th. The options include a flying book, a skittering spider, a curious caterpillar, and a slimy cat.
“Once our artists finish making the mount ready to ride, it will be added to the Mount Collection tab in Q1 2021 for every player with Shadowlands activated on their account,” the studio promised.
Since Blizzard declined to offer any artwork, the community has been busy coming up with visuals of their own for each of these five mounts.
