Unearned opposite faction mounts?

I just want to get a little perspective from other people before reporting a bug. I have the spectral wolf, requiring exalted with Hellscream's Reach, and a couple of Sunreaver mounts. I have never worked toward these mounts - my main is Alliance. Neither of my level 85+ horde characters is exalted with Hellscream's Reach. I'm fairly positive that these three mounts, and who knows how many others, were not earned on this account. I have never done any faction changes to any of my characters. (I am not missing any mounts.)

Anyone else experience anything similar?

Can you actually use them, or are they just showing up in your journal?

Do you obtain the alliance equivalents in the normal way? Maybe this is related to the change that gave us cross-faction motorcycles and mammoths. And possibly even intentional. It's not obviously wrong that putting in the work to get one faction's version shouldn't give you access to the other faction's version.

I do have the armored blue wind rider and sunreaver dragonhawk and hawkstrider. I never purchased them, but I did purchase the Alliance equivalents.

I can use the mounts. And while anything is *possible*, I'm going to hold out hope that the dev team hasn't turned mount-earning into a complete farce, and report this as a bug.

As far as i know AT and HR mounts do get converted to the ally/horde equivalent if you have an opposite faction toon since my rouge has them and i've never really done much on her.

Why those mounts convert over even if you haven't done the AT on a certain faction idk when the core home faction mounts don't even convert.

All this does is give you the opposite-faction equivalent of the mounts you already earned, something that already happened pre-Mists when you transferred factions.

Its been a farce ever since the armory counted opposite faction mounts. It needs to be fixed, then this whole opposite faction stuff wouldnt matter. Not to mention you dont get them all either.

Im missing PVP mounts, AT mounts (Even though I did have them) on the horde side.Its stupid. Get one mount, and your total count goes up by 2.
