One thing I’ve chosen to do with regard to leveling my toons is to pick a ground only mount for them to use during their leveling process in Pandaland. The combo ground/flying mounts I will have plenty of time to play around with at 90 but the ground only mounts often get lost in the shuffle once you hit max level.
My main, Askevar, rode her Rivendare’s charger all around Pandaland while leveling. And that will now be her mount in ground mount only areas… should there be any :P And my feral druid who is now level 87 is riding the Raven Lord. It’s been such a long time since I’ve properly enjoyed some of these mounts.
So the ground mount riding sucks for alts, but might as well make the best of it since it’s going to be that way.
