This one appears to actually have a ground animation unlike the cenarion hippogryph.
The big question is, does it have a walking/running animation?
*Give me a bit and I should get the answer...
IT WALKS !
When the tooltip says thing's like "Epic" or any variation thereof, then Colorblind Mode is enabled.
Can't you read the first comment?
Because at this point in time the cenarian Hippogryph does NOT have a walking/running animation. Just because the "showcase model" is standing doesn't mean that the functional one WILL be. Since the first poster posted the "showcase model" and not the functional one you don't know for sure if it walks. You would assume that if this one walks it's cousin, the cenarian Hippogryph would be able to as well.
: This Hippogryph
DOES NOT WALK!
It does however, land (like the druid flight form).
Update: It seems that of 3.3, the Hippogryphs can walk and run. Considering they were added to the game over a year ago back in 2.3, it's about damn time....

I'm really worried, all these walls of text that I attempt to read and none of them really tell me anything that I need to know... downrate this comment if you must be please answer my bold question when I ask... as I know this will probably be available for a limited time.
Can you have a life, and still get this?
Or, are you going to have to deticate hours and hours out of EVERY DAY that this Argent thing is going on to get all the mounts and special items?
Since when did the humans use hippogryphs?
Incorrect, GM sade:
The Argent Hippogryph was always the brown and white one, even on the PTR. I do happen to know a few fansites mistakenly posted a screenshot of the Silver Covenant hippogryph (which is situated by the Sunreaver Dragonhawk) when speaking about the Argent Hippogryph, and that may be where your expectations came from, but this was not some bait-and-switch change we did.
So this screen shot is incorrect, the mount is white and brown.
Comment taken from
using the "blue-tracker", ironic both links to same site.
If you scroll down you'll allso see a vidoe link with the correct mount, on wowhead that is.
I'd ask where is the wind-rider wyvern mount equivalent, but then I remembered they're hideous and no one wants one.
There is NO information on how fast it goes? Does it have a flight speed of 280% or 310%?
can someone confirm if u get 10 more seals for becoming a champion for another racial faction after ur own?
if so this will reduce the amount of grinding days to 40 days, alot better then 50
no you don't get another 10 seals after becoming a champion of another faction other than your own. you only get 10 from the first time you become a champion.
how long untill this gets removed like the nax protodrakes?
There are no plans to remove the mount. If anything, it will be even easier to obtain in the future, as Blizzard has stated there will be more quests to earn Champion's Seals as the Argent Tournament progresses.
30 Days to get the
105 Days to get the
(additional 2000g for recently added ones)
50 Days to get the
40 Days to get the
15 Days to get the
Since you get 10 Seals on the first day through a regular Quest... that leaves you with...
to get all of the Items. Have fun.
This price was changed to 150
in the 3.1.2 patch.
Also note that hippogryph still not walk or even stand. Using /mountspecial causes the mount to rear its head in the air and open its beak.
It does NOT have an ground animation, like the npc one
This mount is off GCD.
Keep in mind, Blizz stated that the reason they reduced this to 150 Seals is to keep it in line with future rewards. This was my cue NOT to buy this mount and just sit on my Seals. I want to see the mount(s) that Blizz thinks
worth 250 Seals.
I don't know if it's really worth getting this mount as a Tauren. Horse-based mounts tend to look a bit stupid with male Taurens, so I doubt this is any good for the looks if you're playing a male Tauren.
WOW. Even though the argent tourney protectors can sit on these mounts with a ground animation, you can't. You are in the perpetual fly animation. Why the heck hasn't been fixed? I thought we had the same problem with the other hippogryph.
what do you mean it can land but can't walk? does it like stand but when moved it flies?
This mount doesn't walk because it's too busy thinking it's better than all the other mounts because only Champions are allowed to ride it.
As proof, my friend's Hippogryph committed suicide when a guy on
Deadly Gladiator's Frostwyrm
rode by it.
looks like this mount.
does anyone know if this mount glides at all like the drakes or constantly flaps its wings
Kind of disappointed in this. Looks way too much like the
Swift Red Gryphon
. Hope they add some variety. Till then I will be holding on to my seals.
With the next patch Alliance will be able to purchase a new flying mount and I believe that the blue and white hippogryph will be the new mount. Horde will get the hawkstrider. Horde wins.
it does not have a ground animation, and i ahve not once seen it land, it just like, floats really close to the ground like the cenarion one, in fact, its exactly like the cenarion on, just white instead of black
since u get 15 champions seals the first day u become a champion, 10 for becoming a champion, and 5 from the dailies on ur first day, and 15 more days of dailies, it will only take u 16 days to get it, if u get it u buy it as ur first thing, and do buy anything else before it
if u do buy stuff before it, it will take u 30 days to get
DO NOT BUY THIS MOUNT! Next patch, Horde gets a DRAGONHAWK flying mount for only 150 champion seals!
Go ahead and buy it. You guys get another hippogryph. Also 150 champion seals.

Horde wins =D
well now there are champion seals on Trial of Champion heroic bosses and someone confirm if there are also on Crusader/Grand Crusader (it would make sense if there were)
This useless thing won't land but at least it made me learn how to bind a dismount macro to a key.
This mount, and other hippogryphs alike will get ground animations next patch.
They'll be able to land, walk and even run on the ground in 3.3
Got 150 seals today (finally omg...) This or
When I entered a random dungeon finder group while on the Argent Hippogryph, I returned on a Cenarion War instead. This has happened more than once for me.
Unsure if this only happens if you have the Cenarion War (which I do).
This mount now has a walking, and standing animation.
As of patch 4.2, this and all other hippogryphs are able to swim underwater, and are usable in dungeons, and I assume, battlegrounds.
The Blazing and Flameward Hippogryph should be linked to this mount but it isnt. Shame wowhead didnt update its links (same as model as)
This mount is not removed from your mount collection if you move realms, in case you were wondering.
a question, downrate this, I don't care.
With account-wide mounts coming in the future, and this one being more tied to opening up specific quests than an actual
, will this one be account-wide? I've heard mixed answers on various faction mounts, and a resounding 'no' on the PVP ones.
For what it's worth, I went ahead and bought it, so when MoP drops, I'll edit a note in here if I can find out quickly enough.
SO, now that the pre-patch has dropped, I can confirm that this fella here is one of the faction-blind account-wide mounts. Meaning that if you buy him, he goes to *all* of your characters, regardless of which side of the faction lines they stand.
People evaluate things in days spent grinding, but it is actually days of doing pleasant repeatable activities ;-)
This is one of the sexiest Hippogryphs in game
They really need to update the graphics on this mount. The wings are really pixelated.
You can technically get this in 15-16 hours. You are capped on account to do 10 dungeons in an hour, hence the 15 hours if you do 10 within each "lockout" period. If you do trial of the champion on normal you get 1 seal per completion. It takes maybe 5 minutes at most to do the run. when you enter you need a lance from the wall - be mindful if you still have one in your bank you wont be able to pick one up! hop on a horse and run to the dude in the middle - start without the pageantry's and then jump off your horse. you can then aoe down the mobs that spawn instead of jousting them (which takes a lot longer). Then just go through the phases, you're going to 1 shot everything anyway. You don't even need to finish the aspirant stuff really. just go in the dungeon. done. I think a dungeon run is quicker than a daily anyway to be honest.
