Need info on a mount i saw!

I was in Dread waste and seen a mount similar to the Mamouth with the Repair and the supplies guy, but this one had a Arcane reforger, void storage, and a transmgopgh guy on it. Was i seeing things? Does this mount exist?

It does exist, I forget the name, but I think it's from the same vendor that sells the Yak mounts, and it costs something on the order of 100k gold.

Yup 10% discount from exalted or being a goblin = 108K the cheapest.. I don't hink I have that kind of gold all my 11 toons combined..

These maybe bought by Guild/Raid leaders for easy repairs/reforge just outside the raid, instead of going to the reforgers..

From what I read, no discounts for Goblins.
You do get a guild discount, but that's about it. I guess the general idea is that these are guild/group mounts.

I did a little reading and yes, it has reforge on it, and something else. I can't remember.
For 120k gold, it should have all the bling, as well.

I'm not going to lie, that was not very helpful...

Description from WoWpedia:

Reins of the Grand Expedition Yak is a mount similar to the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth, containing a repair vendor and an arcane reforger.
The vendor is somewhat less useful than the one on the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth (TTM). Whereas the GEY vendor sells a small selection of Pandaria level food and drink; the TTM vendors sell Lich King level food as well as a limited selection of trade skill materials and tools, plus [Tome of the Clear Mind].

So, reforging, vendor, repair, and basic food and drink. Bust out the mammoth for retalenting and reglyphing.

The NPCs it carries are:

Cousin Slowhands: repairs, reagents, and level 90 Pandaria food. (The Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth still carries unupdated Lich King food.)
Mystic Birdhat: reforge

This mount is account-wide across factions, from personal experience.

Which is why no goblin discount.

Just the facts:

- 120.000g (108.000g with guild perk, Goblin Racial does NOT apply)
- accountwide (both factions)
- two NPCs: One reforger, one vendor/repair guy who btw offers Tome of the clear mind (and the alternatives for lower levels)
- sold by Uncle Bigpocket who probably lives up to the name
- no quests needed, just pure cash


looks like people will go online to buy wow gold, and the GMs will busy trying to catch them.
I've seen 5 of these guys so far. They might have been the same one, I didn't really pay attention to the rider.

One of my guildies just bought it earlier this week. She said it was 120k. Its mount prices like those that make vial of the sands look like a blue light special.

I bought it the second day of the expac. Lol. I was lvl 88. It costs exactly 106k gold bc of the guild perk. No need to be a goblin or exalted or anything else thta was mentioned above. 106k gold if you are in a lvl 25 guild. It is very useful. It has a reforger and repair on it. I use it all the time. IMO it was worth it bc i can use it on all lof my alts. Even my lvl 20 panda! I remember using it as soon as I hit lvl 20 in WSG and every was like "wtf is that?". Lol. Like I said it is very useful to use on alts esp while leveling. Everytime you get a new upgrade you can reforge right there on the spot to however you see fit.

I believe that would make you a Fire/Water bender. The Arcane doesn't really factor into the 4 elements model of the Universe.

Ya I guess arcane would be fire, but what of Time?

I don't think time can be manipulated in the 4-elements model. I don't think I'd lump in Arcane with fire. Dissimilar energies (hence the 2 distinct in-game specs).

Ya, but mages are better at fire, as shown by arcane as in the avatar world lightning bending was the highest form of fire bending.
