Patch 4.0.3 - Warning!

"As stated in the Under Dev page (, patch 4.0.3 brings about The Shattering, a cataclysmic event that will forever change the face of Azeroth. As we prepare to raise the level cap and introduce two new races with the Cataclysm expansion, it's important to keep in mind that the game world is going through tremendous changes that will affect the availability of certain rare mounts and items.

Swift Zulian Tiger
Zul'Gurub is changing from a raid to a leveling zone in 4.0.3, and this mount will no longer be obtainable.

Swift Razzashi Raptor
This mount will also no longer be obtainable after the change to Zul'Gurub.

Razzashi Hatchling
With the change to Zul'Gurub this non-combat pet will no longer be obtainable.

Tome of Polymorph: Turtle
This tome will continue to be available through other means.

Crusader's White/Black Warhorse and Swift Alliance Steed/Swift Horde Wolf
As the attempt-based tribute system is being removed from Heroic Trial of the Crusader, the Argent Crusade Tribute Chest will no longer spawn, and these mounts will no longer be obtainable

Reins of the Blue Drake
This mount will once again be available from defeating 10-player Malygos without needing to use the Dungeon Finder. The Reins of the Azure Drake will only be available on 25-player Malygos.

Mimiron's Head
This mount will change to be a very low drop chance when defeating 25-player Yogg'Saron with no Keepers assisting you

This mount will change to be a very low drop chance when defeating Heroic 25-player Lich King

Although we have no current plans to introduce new ways to obtain the Zul'Gurub mounts, pets, and the tribute mounts, they may return should we find a place where they fit in the future."

this is an official statement from blizzard concerning specific vanity items in the upcoming patch 4.0.3.

as you can see, due to zul'gurub being removed as an instance, the razzashi hatchling will also become unavailable once the next patch goes live. when they plan on releasing patch 4.0.3 is still unknown, so there's still time to get your very own zg raptor pet. just be sure to make the most of the time left while you can!

i just wanted to note at the very bottom, though, that the blue DOES mention that if they can and feel like it, they may add some or all of the removed items back into the game. but this is something that i wouldn't count on as a guarantee, and i would most definitely start farming for the razzashi hatchling asap.

we all knew that there was a high probability of this happening, and that it was just a matter of time. i'm glad blizzard at least had the forethought and decency to announce it officially and beforehand though. it will help lessen the blow once the actual date of removal arrives.

so what are you waiting for? go get 'em! :P
