Mount Collecting: The Completionist Guide

Obviously everyone is aware of the new mount achievement that awards a Jade Pandaren Kite String for 150x mounts.

Well, I spent over 40x hours putting together a guide that lists all 350+ mounts available in the game. For those interested, feel free to browse: http://www.wowhead.com/guide=1358/mount-collecting-the-completionist-guide

The guide will help you better move up the Mount Ranks on: http://www.guildox.com/go/g.asp?a=19&r=&w=&n=

Enjoy!

Very nice guide. Haven't really been that interested in mounts. I'll most certainly use your guide... when I finally start. :P

I didn't see the Huojin or Tushui factions? Not sure if I just missed them.

Sadly guildox ranks don't mean crap anymore with the armory data showing horde/alliance/class mounts all on the one character :(

But nice guide.

Well, guildox spurred me making the guide. I was at 200x mounts on ally, noticed guildox had ppl listed at 300+ and was bewildered. After figuring out what the armory is doing now, I've been in a mad dash lvling a char on the opposite faction to buffer numbers.

Actually, it's the whole reason I made this guide--it was a pain trying to figure out what I still need to get on my other toon.

This.

Account-Wide stuff is nice and all but when it comes to competition it should have been restricted to the most amount of mounts you can use on a single toon disclosing class-specific.
It's pretty stupid to see people topping on server rankings when they don't actually have any rare mounts or mounts that take effort to get.

Sadly as much as i wish this were true, just look at the facts.....they were an expac late on a 150 mount achievement showing the amount of !@#$s they give for mount collectors.....something that i honestly would not doubt took a dev atmost 30mins to repaint the kite and be done with it and another 10mins maybe to add an achievement.

Asking for something that takes some amount of time or effort to do though especially with it being website based? forget it.

Yeah given Blizzards track record in relation to armory bugs i tend to agree with you however i still plan to focus on my actual mount collection and not concerning myself with bloating my list as much as i can to return to being highly ranked on guildox again.

I hope that at some point in time soon either Blizzard fixes our mount tab or guildox starts pulling its mount data from our stats page so we have accurate ranks again, until then its kinda like trying to rank WOL with some crazy dps bug like the pally one in DS.

The whole argument for account wide anything has always been that individual toons do not matter and that everything is based around the player. I never really liked this argument (and really didn't and still don't like account wide anything) but by the logic of it the total for any kind of ranking should include everything on the account whether or not a particular toon can use it.

well, I'm in the "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em" mentality.

A few weeks ago I was right at 200mounts on my account which coincided with my alliance totals. I'm now at 282 :)

300.. here we come!

I think you missed a couple in the world events section (swift springstrider and swift lovebird). Someone also commented that you missed the tribute to insanity mounts, in the unavailable section, but I didn't check to see if they were correct or not. Just letting you know :)

Just a question since we all seem so knowledgeable here, what does the 150 mount achievement go off of? Max mounts on one toon, or overall account wide? My armory page says I have 163 and in game my character shows 143. Should I have the achievement due to the account wide total of 163?

Goes off of what your statistics show(single character), the armory is currently a piece of crap as all it does is inflates fansites like guildox by showing account wide(ally and horde).
