90AV Marks under the patch 2.0 system
You're lucky if you got this before the recent 2.0 patch, because like Crydel said this mount now costs 90 marks from Alterac Valley, which could be spent on Epic PvP gear under the new system.
I noticed what seemed to be a human rider. Can an alliance character get one of these?
maybe it was just someone who recently ate a savory deviate delight
This mount is "better" than the other PvP mounts because it doesn't have any cooldown timer. However, the 3sec cooldown that the other mounts have is hardly noticeable.
I have gathered around 550g and paid for the skill, and was left nearly dry.
Seeing as I never liked the 100% speed kodos in the first place, I took a weekend
and got the 50 marks. This wolf is very fast not to mention it looks awesome!
Check the screenshot :))
But where to get it??
I dont know what PvP mount I want.... I think it comes down to either this, or the Black War Raptor....
Hey, proportionally does a troll look too big on this mount like the brewfest ram?
Before any stupid comments pop up here, this mount is HORDE ONLY, even though the tooltip doesn't say anything.
Back in the day, AV was THE faction to grind rep with, and this mount was THE mount to have. Many good items came from AV rep and are still fondly remembered today (The Unstoppable Force, anyone?), and due to the low price and pure awesomeness of these mounts, people would often not buy their faction epic mount and instead just go straight for this. It was definitely very cool for those who had one back then.
Unfortunately the value is a bit diminished now. All it requires is 50 AV marks, which can be obtained casually in a few days. Still one of the coolest looking mounts in the game though, IMO.
My only complaint is the way Orcs look on wolves, even though it is their racial mount. It looks as if the poor thing's legs are about to give way!
Mount easy to be obtained 50xmarks
I wish they could have another optional look, simaller to the lvl 30 mounts.
Only attainable if you are eligible to do AV, to point out the obvious.
Requires riding (150)
It is a very popular mount. Very nice, basically a white version of the orc wolfs.
As of patch 3.02 this item no longer summons the mount. Instead it teaches you how to summon it. Smart move of Blizzard making the mount mechanic more fair allowing all players to save a bag slot, and not only Paladins and Warlocks. Note that the mana cost of Paladin's and Warlock's mount summon has been removed as well.
I prefered the look of the unarmored wolf mount before 1.6. I think, although the frostwolf howler looks amazing, the helm on it makes the head look too small.
Only complaint I have is that all the wolves look like they have a bad limp.
Four trolls eh? Good man/woman
better looking than the
in my opinion
andrevus, i think ur prolly an oober noob
allys get the stormpike battlecharger
well they dont get it, but they could if they would ever win an AV for once
well i just got this, first AV mount i ever decided to get
only one worth getting
i originally played alliance
and could never find a well looking mount that was easily obtain(not drops)
and so when i played horde i had to have it, my mount is the frostwolf howler and my hunter pet is a "black war wolf" or the wolf from hellfire ramparts
As of 3.1, the animations for the Horde wolf mounts have been VASTLY improved. There's no more stick-up-the-butt syndrome - the run cycle now looks graceful. Also the body doesn't dip so low as to clip some of the larger races' feet. The /mountspecial has been changed slightly too, to look less like a playful puppy's bow and more fierce.
I finally got this about 3 weeks ago Its not that hard to save up 50AV marks... it just depends on how the battle plays out. my battlegroup is Rampage and i got the marks for it no prob in the 61-70 bracket. its a good mount to have after u just spent 500+G for journeyman riding it doesnt cost any gold only ur time in AV. Great first epic mount if dont have G to pay for faction epic.
Good for Death Knights - you start with Journeyman riding, you start at about the right level to be the top of your level bracket, and you start with a mount that makes the most unpleasant noise on earth, so i'd be surprised if AV wasn't full of Dks grinding.
This thing looks awesome on ud's, got it on my 80 dk, don't using it much though, got it at 64, and now
is the new deal!
If you ask me, compared to the allience Battle ram that they get, we seriuosly get the good end of the stick, this mount looks freaken awesome...just 20 more marks to get and its mine :P sigh, but loosing in AV and only getting 1 mark per bg going to take long :/ need to win a few more.
As of patch 3.2.0 i have been farming av for exp on my 74 (now 76) Deathknight alt.
Getting around about 100k exp per bg and leaving questing zones unfinished.
Marks piling up in the currency tab
Lots of honour so i can have atleast 1 pvp item when i hit 80.
Much better than grinding on mobs due to not having the feeling of deja vous.
The point of this post is that a lot of people know how much exp av is giving as of 3.2
Frostwolf howlers are about to become very common as a lot of people are gradually turning to av for leveling due to reasons above.
this item is really the only viable item to blow marks on.
Is there an alliance equivalent to this?
i got my frost wolf howler :D
One can only hope with the new patch removing the achievements you get via rep with the Battleground factions will not remove this mount. More info as the patch goes live!
Rumors say this mount will go away in the expansion, best get it before that happends! This is to make the mount more exclusive for the older players. This is only a rumord heard on MMO-Champion forums, but I'm getting it on all my chars before it's to late. Better safe than sorry!
If battle ground marks are going away in the next patch? What happens to the price of this item?
Yay, we don't have to /facepalm through 50 BG's anymore!
OK, so it's 3.3.3 now, I've got 50K honor points to spend... where in the
do you buy this,
As a side-note. This is the mount that Thrall rides.
You can see it in the "Battle for the Undercity".
An addendum to the note above. The REASON Thrall rides this mount, is that the Frostwolf clan were the clan that took him in after his escape from Durnholde, their shamans taught him what he knows, and he gained a wolf familiar, Snowsong.
"Behold, the fearsome howler of the Frostwolf clan. His eyes... His eyes are glowing with the most vicious light of
that even the
bold dwarves of Stormpike would wet their pants."
Seriously, why does it have to be pink? Nothing in the Frostwolf clan is pink, Thrall is not pink, Drekthar is not pink. So... why the pink eyes?
Of course, back in vanilla no one cared about the pink eyes. This was because the number of mounts to choose from was very VERY limited and no one was as critical as they are today. Just gathering 1000 gold at level 60 to get ANY epic mount at that time was a task that took many months of daily grinding and typically only high end raid guilds were able to accomplish.
This mount was available by grinding your AV faction to exalted and putting down only 640 gold. Of course the discount was nice but back in those days it still took months to get this because of battleground pops (although on some more active servers it could be done in under a month provided you did all the AV quests and had lots of time to spare.) There was no cross battlegroup randoms and the AV Q often went for 6+ hours before finally popping. After the pop, the game could last over 24 hours (rare) but regardless of how long it went, you weren't able to get fast faction like you can today.. not by a long shot.
Of all my mounts, I still use this one as my main to remember the days when I still logged into the game with that original excitement... an excitement that has long since disappeared.
Feast of Strength... anyone?:(
Frostwolf Howler - The only mount for any self-respecting shaman (If you Role-play from the Frostwolf Clan) ;D
Simple easy mount to get if you farm bg's and rbg's.
Made an account just to post this, for those of you trying to find this mount in 4.3 You need to go to alterac mountains and find Jorek Ironside the frostwolf supply officer. He is located north of Tarren Mill. Hope this helped someone, took me forever to remember where these guys were.
As of patch 5.0.4, the Frostwolf Howler's pink eyes have been replaced with a nice shade of blue.
So for all of you who have been holding out on buying this wonderful mount because of the pink eyes, you can now have your howler with manly wolf eyes. Congratulations!
Somehow i got this achieve, yet i completely missed getting the howler itself, im lost :S.
: Logged on one day, and miraculously had the howler as well! i did get the Alliance version many many years ago, for the longest time i had the achieve for the howler (assuming that it just renamed itself from the achieve with the ally ram) without actually having the howler, now i have both :D.
In 5.1 I automatically got this mount on my Horde characters. I have only purchased the
, which is the equivalent Alliance AV ram mount from the Stormpike quartermaster.
Hooray for Blizzard giving us the opposite-faction mount for a time-consuming achievement!
I noticed that his eyes are once again pink, after having been changed to green at some point in MoP. Not sure what's going on at Blizz HQ that they keep changing something so minor.
I love this mount.. it costs 2000 honour, no reputation required, and is bought in the Frostwolf Village, Alterac Valley. It is nicely close to the ground; it's nice to go first person mode.
Hi guys 1st post here!
I think they change the icon of the mount, no one noticed.
There are six mounts you can buy, for
no rep required
On the Horde side the vendors are:
Black War Wolf
Black War Raptor
Black War Kodo
Red Skeletal Warhorse
On the Alliance side the vendors are:
Stormpike Battle Charger
Black War Steed
Black War Tiger
Black War Elekk
Black War Ram
Since wowhead hasn't updated this at their end yet, this also costs 15
Mark of Honor
, like rest of the honor mounts in Orgrimmar.
Also with the legion prepatch, the NPC that sells this,
will not appear until stage 3 of the invasion. (Will not be at his spot during stage 1 and 2)
You can't currently buy this from
, as he's replaced by
(even though the 15th Anniversary event is over); however, you can still buy it from
inside the Alterac Valley battleground.
As of today (25.03.21), you can buy the mount from the vendor again.
He is located at 58 / 33, in Hillsbrad Foothills.
Last post said you couldn't, so this might be to good use for someone.
