- World of Warcraft confirms exclusive skill-based items like the Kor’kron War Wolf won’t be available in the Trading Post.
- Achievements like Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge, which require challenging feats, gave incredible rewards to players.
- While these prestige items won’t come back via the Trading Post, there is still a possibility for other time-limited collectibles to appear there.
World of Warcraft recently confirmed the Kor’kron War Wolf, and other similar exclusive items, won’t be coming to the Trading Post. While it didn’t say they would never make a comeback, World of Warcraft players can at least expect these skill-based items to never appear in the Trading Post.
Some achievements in World of Warcraft require players to accomplish challenging feats in a limited amount of time, such as Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge, both of which are earned by beating raids on Heroic and Mythic difficulty while they are endgame content. These achievements often give incredible rewards to those able to complete them. Recently, the Kor’kron War Wolf – the Ahead of the Curve mount from Siege of Orgrimmar – received a Trader’s Tender cost on the Public Test Realm, leading many fans to suspect World of Warcraft might add the prestige mount to the Trading Post in the future.
World of Warcraft Fans Find Shadowlands Secret Hidden for Two Years
As World of Warcraft begins wrapping up Dragonflight, a group of players discover a secret hidden back in Shadowlands for two years.
Now, World of Warcraft has come forward to dispel this particular rumor. According to a forum post by WoW community manager Kaivax, Blizzard has no plans to release mounts or other rewards from skill-based feats via the Trading Post, including Ahead of the Curve, Cutting Edge, or Gladiator PvP achievements. This means the Kor’kron War Wolf’s Trader’s Tender cost was an accident, or some other fluke of the PTR.
AotC Mounts Won’t Come to the WoW Trading Post
Though Blizzard confirmed prestige rewards would not be coming back via the Trading Post, it did not say the items wouldn’t ever appear elsewhere. Additionally, while it said skill-based collectibles would not come back to the Trading Post, it gave no such confirmation about other time-limited prestige items. Players have discovered Trader’s Tender costs on items like Ichabod, the pet from a past Twitch Support a Streamer drive, and the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur – a WoW gold sink reward more valuable than the one added in Love is in the Air – so fans could possibly still see these collectibles appear on the Trading Post instead.
While some fans who earned these exclusive items back when they were current content dislike the idea, the majority of players would love to see a new way to get them in modern WoW. The Siege of Orgrimmar raid in World of Warcraft is over 10 years old, meaning many fans who are playing the game weren’t around to get mounts like the Kor’kron War Wolf. Players will have to wait and see if World of Warcraft ever revives these prestige items, or if they remain exclusive indefinitely.
In the meantime, players have a chance to get a different limited-time item for free. From now through February 27, fans can get Cap’n Crackers, a cash shop pet that was removed from the store late last year, via a February’s Prime Gaming World of Warcraft reward.
