Aftermath: Throne of the Tides is the upcoming expansion set for the World of WarCraft Trading Card Game, and is expected to hit hobby store shelves sometime in October, 2011.
Throne of the Tides will feature 3 new loot cards from the WoW TCG, including the rare Wasteland Tallstrider Mount. No information has been given on the look of the Wasteland Tallstrider mount, but it will be the first Tallstrider mount ever available to WoW players.
An interesting note about Tallstrider mounts…
They have been in the game data for years, but were never actually introduced. It's likely that they were intended to be an available mount type for horde characters, but for some reason, ending up getting scrapped. One theory is that Tallstriders were perhaps going to be added as the Tauren mount, only to be later replaced by the larger and more practical Kodo. It's also possible that maybe Tallstriders were the early concept for Blood Elf mounts.
Regardless… they'll at least be one Tallstrider mount available in-game, come October of this year. 🙂
As for the other two loot cards in Throne of the Tides… no info has been given about them, but it's likely that the common one will be a companion pet of some sort.
