Update 3/9: The Wandering Ancient is slowly being rolled out to players on live servers for Patch 9.0.5. If you haven't gotten your Wandering Ancient yet, you just have to be patient!
Wandering Ancient Delivery Slightly Delayed
How do you get the Wandering Ancient mount?
John Hight: That's a great question! So, little background: Last year, when we were finishing up Shadowlands, our Art team were ahead of schedule and we decided it would be awesome to give a gift back to all our players and build a mount for them. And so, the Art team put together some cool ideas, brainstormed some things they wanted, and we literally put it to a vote, and let our community decide what they would like us to make for them. The winner was, the Wandering Ancient!
So the requirement for the Wandering Ancient really is, you gotta have Shadowlands! We will have the Wandering Ancient in the 9.0.5 patch update, and that will be next month! I won't tell you the exact date, but you can probably guess it is pretty close, but we want to make sure the patch is ready to put it out.
We're really excited for you to be able to ride it around, it is a really awesome mount.
