Two new PvP mounts have been seen on the PTR, the Vicious Skeletal Warhorse and the Vicious Warsaber.
Two new mounts have popped up on the PTR, the Vicious Skeletal Warhorse and the Vicious Warsaber. These are to be new faction specific PvP mounts that are sold by Netharian with a Vicious War Saddle; however, at this time it is unclear as to how you will earn the war saddle. Cory Stockton said on twitter, “these are for a wider PvP audience,” while Brian Holinka said, “win 100 3v3 arena games or 40 RBG in a season.”
@Wilhelm116 They are for a wider PVP audience.

@Deontto Win 100 3V3 arena games and 40 RBG in a season

Holinka was later questioned about the two different responses, at which point he said, “They aren’t based on rating which specifically limits the audience to a certain percentage.“
Reins Of The Vicious Warsaber
If you haven’t had a chance to check out MMO-Champion’s video than you can do so here. I’m a huge mount collector, but have never been much of a fan for any of the sabers. This one looks great, though. It is a fairly typical PvP mount with armor plastered to every surface, but I love the way it moves. The walk is quite cat-like, almost like a prowl. It still has a fairly bumpy run, but it looks much better than the previous sabers. It’s more than likely that I still will not use this mount, but it looks great and I want it for my collection.
Vicious Skeletal Warhorse
Again, if you haven’t checked out MMO-Champion’s video for this mount, than do so here. I love the look of this mount, from the purple saddle blanket (that term really doesn’t sound right to me, but I looked it up and apparently that’s correct) right down to the green firey hooves. I’ve grown quite partial to my mounts leaving firey trails behind me, since I acquired the Headless Horseman’s Mount five years ago (cut down on my falling deaths per year by half).
What do you guys think of the look of these two mounts? As well, how do you feel about Holinka’s response to how you will get them?
