The skytongue mounts as well as WOW Classic TBC Gold kara mounts were also available. Each had distinct designs, with the exception of the kara mount, which was simply the horse with fangs.

Ok look I feel you. For real I get it. The TBC reps also feel important. Once you've done that you'll be rewarded with all the heroes you'll ever need. Do it again and you'll find some truly amazing items that aren't changed for a while.

Just as. When you get the Frenzied Feltalon, it feels as if it's a bit boring even if it's a alteration of two mounts you already have. A simple change in color doesn't make up the enormous difference in difficulty. Also, since there are so many colors for some mounts, they appear to mix and you don't have to worry whether it's the incredibly difficult one or the freebie. Because when their association is so close the worth of the crazy mount actually diminishes because the freebie's worth can't increase, even if the freebie looks like a rare mount.

Recolours are available through other ways. Then there are all the drake mounts from WotLK and buy WOW TBC Classic Gold Cata which are just recolours of rare spawn drops/reputation/achievement rewards.
