In-game images of the new Wasteland Tallstrider mount have been elusive, but I did manage to spot a pic of the loot card today on eBay. If the artwork is any indication, it looks like this new mount is going to be an ivory colored tallstrider, similar to the tallstriders found in Mulgore and the Northern Barrens.
I also saw another image which a seller posted on ebay that depicted the mount as looking like a Lost Torranche — the purple and green tallstriders found on Sorrow Wing Point, in Terrokar Forest.
To me, that would obviously be a more exciting option – albeit a little flamboyant. However, considering the Wasteland Tallstrider loot card is showing an ivory tallstrider skin, I'm thinking that's what it will probably be. So far, all of the mount loot cards that have been released all have artwork representative of what the mount actually looks like in-game.
Either way, it's going to be an awesome mount, and the very first tallstrider mount available in World of Warcraft.
At any rate, we'll know the actual model of the Wasteland Tallstrider pretty soon. Throne of the Tides is set to hit stores on October 11th. In the meantime, I'll be sure to post any pics or video of this exciting new ground mount from the WoW TCG.
The Wasteland Tallstrider is a rare loot card, found in approximately 1 in 242 booster packs of Throne of the Tides.
Sellers are already posting pre-orders on ebay, so grab one up now if you want to be among the first to show off this unique new mount. Average price is under $200 as of right now, which is relatively cheap for mount loot.
