Price: 100.000 Gold
100k is a joke.
So, since they're going to charge for the price of a utility mount, why not have this item ACTUALLY cut up dead taurens into Tri-Tip steaks? If it did that then it might actually be worth such a high cost.
I'm not crazy about it's look...like a cross between a beetle and a snowmobile. It's a
I'll be honest, I think 100k is a little steep, and a couple people have said that is the price of a utility mount in Pandaria (not exactly but almost), HOWEVER with that said I'm just thankful that they added it into the game at all considering they said only one would make it as an in-game mount, yes most of us said that this would happen in some form, but blizzard could have stuck to their guns and said "No! you aren't having it!" so yea
Checking the Beta today showed that the bike and the vendor were removed. It was even removed from the journal. Maybe it's being removed?
Stop whining how 100k is steep and be grateful that Blizzard gave in to alliance whiners and put the bike in the game. Horde bike won.
Watch how this gets downvoted by the said whiners.
This was a very stupid and obsolete contest. Everyone knows there are way more many horde players than alliance. Even the people that work at blizzard are mostly horde. So even if the horde mount was a pogo stick, they wouldve won anyway. This wasnt a contest, this was a slap in the face to the alliance.
in Stormwind's Old Town. He is in the center courtyard near the well. If you use TomTom, the coordinates are 73.2, 59.4. The
costs 100,000 gold. It appears that he is not yet in the live build. He may be moved when and if they put him back in. Still not in the game as of the launch of Warlords.
EDIT: He is back where he is supposed to be.
For who is wondering where you can buy this.....see this NPC:
According to Ian "Red Shirt Guy" Bates, who was talking to Monte Krol at Blizzcon, he claims that Blizzard never liked the design of the Champion's Treadblade, so that can be the reason to why it isnt ingame yet.
Maby they want to redesign it, maby they wont release it at all or maby its just deleayd. :)
We will have to wait and see.
Here is link to the post "Red Shirt Guy" made:
I can't get over the fact how much this bike looks like an armored bug, blech. FOR THE HORDE!
It has been added people!
Paulie and the Champions Treadblade
are now in the live game.
Paulie can be found in Stormwind's Old Town, at coordinates: 73.2, 59.4.
Unfortunately, there seems to be a bug.
The mount does not appear in the mount tab, even if you have bought and learned it.
It has now been fixed! (04.12.14) Enjoy:)
If you are wanting it badly, like myself, I suggest waiting until this issue has been resolved.
I have ticketed the issue and I am currently awaiting a response.
NOTE: /use Champion's Treadblade
. So if you have bought it/will buy it, use this macro for now.
Note 2: It DOES count towards the mount achievements, even though it's not displayed in the mount tab.
It's also worth nothing that the /mountspecial is completely unique. It's a two round doughnut, or circle-drift or whatever you crazy kids call it nowadays.
Ditto on that. Decided to take the plunge and put the money in Paulie's hands, get it in my pack, learn it, and nothing. Maybe they have to custom make it now that we paid/ordered it? LOL
Ticket submitted as well. Gotta love how as you start submitting the ticket it says 24/7 support, someone will be with you in minutes. Then once you submit it....4days, 18hrs is the posted wait time. Really Blizz? All this money coming in and you can't higher some extra help for support? Lots of folks looking to make a little extra for the Holidays. Sigh.....
No mount in the tab showing, learned or unlearned. Though if you look at it to buy it again from the vendor, it does show you know it..
Confirmed work around. The use command is perfect. I keep my favorite mounts on an action bar so I just created a macro for it..
What I did:
Name it what ever you wish (I just hit the space bar once as I do not want a name on the macro).
Put "/use Champion's Treadblade" in the action line.
Then, if you scroll up the icon list from bottom to top, just a bit before 1/3 of the way up the list you will find the actual icon for the Treadblade.
And there we go, would never know anything is wrong! Thanks for the great use command MitriyEversong!
Available since now, price 100k gold, summon only with macro /use Champion's Treadblade
Can't find it? it's a bug you need 2 put it on your action bar then click and learn it or use command /use CHAMPION'S TREADBLADE in a macro
I'm just bummed that the Horde mount was only available during a certain timeframe. I was unfortunately an a break from WoW during that time, so I missed out. Makes my various Pandaren sad pandas :)
Didn't see it mentioned yet, but for those wondering if there's an achievement tied to getting it -- there is not.
For 100K, you would think an achievement would unlock with it as well like the "Get to the Choppa!" achievement for the other craftable bikes. The Horde Warlord bike got an achievement (which I can understand since it was the winner of the Azeroth Choppers contest).
Like the Warlord bike, it does have that bad-ass idle chopper noise and gives the sound of shifting gears as your riding it unlike the craftable bikes. Also, you can hear the sound of a lion roar when you mount it. Not sure if the horde counterpart does that (can't remember at the time of typing this).
But definitely buyer-beware for those on the fence about buying it. No extra frills included (no achievement, no extra seat for 2nd person). Just a 100,000g mount.
Yeah, I bought it. I know the 100k is a slap in the face to Alliance... but I don't care.
I am ALLIANCE.
And I will show it off every way I can!
This was a pure fight and you allys lost.FOR THE HORDE!
But from your point of view think of it this way. 100k for a decent looking mount.
Bought mine and it's not showing up in my mount journal. It says I know it if I mouse over it from the vendor or click the name in chat, but I don't seem to actually have it. Has this happened with anybody else?
There was a bug causing some players to not see the Champion's Treadblade in their mount journal. This has now been resolved, as confirmed my BlizzardCS's comment on 12/5/14. If you still have issues, please see BlizzardCS's comment or use the macro below (English client):
#showtooltip Champion's Treadblade
/cast Champion's Treadblade
Description in the mount journal:
-"Forged by human, gnome and dwarf, this armored masterpiece is designed to slice a tauren into a tri-tip dinner with a flick of the handlebars."
Also note, this mount is a single player mount. However, it does have custom animations and a sweet mountspecial. For the mountspecial the bike does a 360 degree turn around a pivot point in left front corner of the bike. Perfect for intimidating tiny critters. And other small creatures.
Champion's Treadblade: (1-seat)
-Source: Sold for 100,000 gold from
in Old Town Stormwind City (
Horde Verison: (1-seat)
-Source: Azeroth Choppers promotion prior to Warlords launch
Engineering WotLK Bikes: (2 seats)
To put the 100,000 gold cost for the treadblade in perspective:
-If you made a level 1 male human warrior and sold all gear to a vendor, you will receive 9 copper. This means you would have to create and strip (and trade 9 copper to a friend) 111,111,112 level 1 male warriors to buy this bike. If it took you ~1 minute per a character then it would take approximately 211.4 YEARS to buy this mount. You might want to start farming soon...
(If I got something wrong, let me know and I'll fix it.)
Nobody thought to put a 'Bought from' tab I noticed. Where's the vendor that has this?
To further add to the badass factor of this mount, it's engine starts up with what sounds like a lions roar.
Update: This issue is now resolved. Please, restart the game client and the Battle.net Desktop App to make Champion's Treadblade appear in your mount journal.
There is currently a bug causing this mount not to appear in the mount journal. We’re working on resolving this issue as quickly as possible but in the meantime you can create this macro as a temporary workaround:
#showtooltip Champion's Treadblade
/cast Champion's Treadblade
PLEASE NOTE: The name of the mount must be in the language of the game client you are using. Change the language of this page in the top-right corner to the language of your game and check the official ‘blue’ comment there for the appropriate macro.
As of 12/2/2014 the bike is now available live
it cost 100,000 gold and is awesome as can be.
I play alliance and voted for Horde because this bike looks like garbage. I watched the series and they were trying to capture the alliance feel, but this is just swords and metal.
Wow, alliance bike actually looks pretty stupid, but still way better than the horde bike, and they get theirs for free? This is already world of hordecraft, but this is some stupid BS.
Just a kind heads-up so you don't do what I did. The keys to the mount are "Bind on Pickup", so don't buy it on your level 1 banker. You need lvl 40 to use it... Reading tooltips is hard sometimes. "smashes head into keyboard"
Yay! A kind GM moved the keys to my main so I could learn it there instead. Didn't expect that, actually, so I started leveling my bank-alt. Got to lvl 30 before they had time to reply...
A little video that shows where to buy it:
Just bought this beautiful piece of alliance engineering, and I must say I'm rather satisfied, totally worth the g's I spent on it, still had 12K left after I bought it, so I'm not completely broke :D
I wish they would have made it just a teeny more realistic. Same with the horde bike. Sure the tank treads look hard and rugged, but it would only go like, 5 mph in real life? And the Alliance bike is worse, both front and back have that dumb tread. And yes it does make it look like a snowmobeetle! lol
As my screenshot shows, gnomes stands on this bike.
And you thought
My thinking on the whole choppergate thing has changed as of late. At first I was rather upset the horde got handed a free bike, but then I realized that maybe they got shafted in a way. You see, the horde chopper is so common that literally everyone has it, so it really means NOTHING to own one. However, the alliance chopper is going to be very rare due to it's price point. So really, horde got a free bike that is worthless since everyone has it anyway, and alliance got a collectors item that has to be earned. I think I'd rather have a bike that people will actually notice than one nobody will, even if I have to work for it.
I was actually reluctant to buy this mount, but I decided to spend most of my time farming gold. Was able to make the 40k+ I needed for the purchase in about 2 months. I am actually very happy with the purchase.
It might not be as representative of the Faction as the Horde Bike, but I still like this one better because I love tank treads and TBH the Horde's is a Trike, not a chopper. The sound is great and love the new chopper mount position for the characters.
I know 100k gold is a lot of work but this is a definite eye opener and something you wont see on every corner. If you don't like it that's fine, but I you have the gold and crave it, is definitely recommended.
It took me ages to save up 40,000G for a vial of the sands, how the hell do they expect anyone to pay 100K? I hope they lower the price cause I am not paying that much.
Say what you will but I actually like this mount more than horde version.
It looks great with any race unlike horde trike which is too small and looks silly from the back
It's especially great for pandaren - in fact to me it's the only mount male pandaren looks good on...
Oh and the price is fine I think - it was easy to make a couple hundred thousand gold before I got too bored to keep doing it. Basically I leveled 7 tank alts to 100 and farmed savage bloods with all of them to keep all their barns fully work loaded. That yielded about 10k per day which is just about 2 weeks for 100k target. Right now though with much lower prices it's not worth the time I guess.
Just bought this tonight. So far I have 2 "tricks" I like to do. One is to use a left keyboard turn during the mount special, which makes it spin faster, the other is a wheelie where you pop aspect of the fox+ mount and then deepstone oil in midair. You will land and be froozen but have the front of the bike in the air.
Paulie does not seem to be associated with Stormwind, so there is no reputation discount for Stormwind rep when buying this bike.
After much testing, I can confirm this item DOES NOT actually slice a tauren into a tri-tip dinner. I still need
So agreed this is a totally & utterly ridiculous amount of gold to spend on 1 mount (which doesn't offer any other benefits besides transport alone).
Having bought mine.. would I do it again ? * In a heart beat *.
At the end of the day it's all about fun... and this really is great fun.
Driving around like an idiot with a huge grin says it all.
One bonus to point out. If you have the mark of warsong enchantment on your weapons (in belt scabbards), then it the flame effect comes through the back of the bike - making it look like the engine has flames coming out of it... nice.
Terrible use of gold.
Phenomenal investment in fun.
warning if you buy this mount and mount it people well assume you are rich and ask you for money
Yep, I'll never be able to afford this...ah well
This mount is worth every penny, it makes everyone mad at me. But I think it's because they're jealous.
For those few people who don't know what the deal is with this mount or how/why it came to be in the game...
Little explanation for the name of the NPC that sells it:
(from memory, might not be 100% accurate)
Prior to the release of the Warlords of Draenor expansion pack, Blizzard approached Paul Teutul Jr., known from TV's American Chopper where he worked with his dad, before branching off and starting his own motorcycle shop.
Blizzard wanted Paul and his team to create motorcycles in the style of the main Warcraft factions and they made it into a little contest. The builders were divided into two teams, who listened to Blizzard's wishes and familiarised themselves with World of Warcraft before getting to work. The result was two awesome fantasy themed motorcycles, and they were unveiled at a special event where the guys from Blizzard tallied the votes made by players from all around the world, and revealed that eventually, the majority of players found the Horde bike the best one.
That motorcycle was added to the game and called the Warlord's Deathwheel, given free to Horde players. I believe there was a single requirement, perhaps either having cast a vote or just being active at the time.
The Alliance bike was also added because obviously people felt it was unfair to deny approximately half the playerbase an equally cool bike, but since it did lose the contest, it was thrown into the game and is now being sold at a high price.
This is fairly obvious but I'll just point it out: owners of the
not acquire a free Champion's Treadblade
. Unlike certain mounts like the Kor'kron Annihilator and the Golden King.
Allowing for that would be ridiculous in a bunch of ways.
Opinion: As a Horde player who is very happy with the Warlord's Deathwheel, I have to say that this bike also looks excellent. The price in my opinion is far too high and shouldn't have been more than a couple of thousand of gold pieces, so as to make the price more of a formality for the "losers" of the contest.
The argument about which side really lost is rather silly. Both motorcycles look great in their respective themes. The Horde players got theirs for free, the Alliance players didn't. Sure, there are some players who don't care what something looks like, only if it's unique/rare. But just because you feel that the Alliance motorcycle is therefor better than the Horde one, doesn't actually make it so, since this is 100% opinion. I'm sure that they differ only in appearance, not performance. And different players care about different things. Many players just want to collect cool looking mounts, and since this is one of them, they will not be happy with the 100k gold price tag.
I plan on adding this to my collection somewhere in the future, I might even try to purchase this before I get the
(which costs 120k), since there are other, cheaper yaks available and it's really just a glorified Traveler's Tundra Mammoth. Personally, and I'm sure many out there will feel the same, I don't care how many other players own the mount. There are plenty of items in the game (weapons, mounts, pets) that I enjoy equally, and not all of them are expensive vendor items or rare drops. They're fun to use, nice to look at and that's what matters to me.
In the end, we're all winners!
For the Horde AND the Alliance, anyone?
(or its previous incarnations) as of Feb 12, 2016, but you may need to log completely out of your account and back in to see your mount total change reflected. I don't know if my total not incrementing originally was because that particular achievement is wonky or if it's some interaction with already having the free Horde version, but both reloading my UI and relogging/swapping characters didn't move me from 294 to 295, but logging completely out (to the login screen) and back in again worked.
Had a chat with two GMs over the last couple of days about wheter or not this mount can be purchased on alliance and count towards the horde version of the lord of reins achievement IF you do not already own the horde version of this mount. The answer i got, was "it likely won't count", which i felt was a horrible answer from a blizzard GM. I wrote in my review that i was not happy with the answer i had been given, and another GM contacted me the day after saying that they do infact have no idea wheter or this is the case or not, and that i could always take the risk and test it out for myself.
So has anyone tested this?
if you're wondering whether or not this counts towards your mount total as some people have asked earlier, the answer is yes, but only if your highest character mount count is on alliance.
the way the achievement works is it counts the highest amount of usable mounts you have
on any one character
. however, when you press shift+P, that shows the amount of mounts you have
on your account
. the achievement tracks the highest amount of mounts that any one of your characters
can actually use
what this means is, let's say you have 297 (usable) mounts on your mage. then, you get one more mount and learn it on that character. your total character mounts will then rise to 298. however, if you log off of your mage and log onto a paladin, you will suddenly get the achievement for 300 mounts. this is because paladins, warlocks and death knights have extra mounts that count towards the achievement
only if they are usable
. since these class mounts aren't usable on other characters, they don't count for those characters.
what this means concerning the bikes is that alliance and horde characters will have
a different number of usable mounts
. if you have more faction-specific mounts for alliance then horde, then yes this mount will count. however, if (for example) you have every racial mount for each faction but several argent tournament mounts as well as the bike on your horde, buying this mount will do absolutely nothing for your mount progress.
Is there a reputation discount? Like if you're exalted with Stormwind, does it cost less like 75k instead?
For those saying that it is unfair to have this mount cost so much when the Horde version was free.... let us think about a few things here.
It was brought about by a special promotion in which they made a few things stipulations/results of this promo clear.
1. The Bikes would be voted on.
2. The winning bike would be created in game and given for free for a certain time.
3. At no time did they state that the Alliance bike would ever be created or offered, but due to the fact that they actually do listen to gamer feedback, they decided to put it in.
So, then let us think about rarity, availability, fairness here.
Horde- Free, but for a limited time. All they had to do was log in during the Promo period between 24th of July and the 30th of September 2014. Even with this, according to Wowhead, only 47% of profiles have the mount,
Alliance- Created due to player requests. Then comes the question of how can they make this mount feel just as rare or special as the one from the promo? Answer, higher cost. Possibly quest line but either would have caused a bit of discontent and the claim that it is not "fair". (Not much in life is "fair" really...) With the high cost, less will buy it due to being unable to afford it or justification of spending. According to Wowhead, only 6% of profiles have it making it the rarer and more special/unique of the two.
So while yeah, the horde version was free, the Alliance version is still obtainable in the game if you have the gold. Horde side, if you did not log in, you cannot get it at all.
He is in an alley across from the "Pig and Whistle Tavern" in Old town(Stormwind). Will post /way once I go back there.
They should just make a Horde version of the Champion's Treadblade, same model, but with new coloring. Perhaps a Forsaken themed one called "Defiled Treadblade? This way Horde players can still have a Chopper. I know, most people will probably hate this idea. But if I'm paying 100k for a Mount I should be able to use it on my Alliance and Horde characters.
WARNING! This is NOT a flying mount!
In the end...looks like the Alliance got that last laugh! LOL!
Wylyth on 2020/03/24 (Patch 8.3.0)
New Alliance players can still get the Champion's Treadblade, but new Horde players can't get the Warlord's Deathwheel.
There's a goblin who sells a trike, just to the right of the embassy, same area as the goblin auctioneer and battle pet trainers. Sells a plain trike for low-level riders and the trike EXTREME for faster riders.
Just as land-bound as this one.
Just in case this wasn't obvious to anyone else, buying the Champion's Treadblade on an Alliance character DOES NOT award the Warlord's Deathwheel on Horde characters.
August 2022 - Happily paid my 100K to be a biker "b", must not be as severe as it was back in 2014.... inflation has us all desensitized ;)
