No True Worgen Racial Mounts

Blizzard has announced officially that Worgen will not get racial mounts, and instead will have Running Wild as their mount substitute. 

Running Wild is indeed the new racial "mount" for worgen. Functionally the ability works exactly like a mount. This does mean the worgen are not bringing faction mounts to the table which other Alliance races can access. This is also of course very different from the original Plainsrunning implemented for taurens. We have no plans to try and bring that ability back in any form.

Ultimately, we feel Running Wild fits very well with the nature of the worgen race. Rather than getting a physical mount, they get down and sprint on all fours. When you’re playing a worgen, it just feels awesome. :) (source)


This is fine, except that now Alliance players are short mounts for mount-based achievements, giving Horde players an advantage there. For example, Leading the Cavalry will be harder for Alliance players. We’ll see how this pans out.
