Since the release of Wrath of the Lich King Classic expansion, players can clearly feel that a lot of new elements have unknowingly been added to World of Warcraft and permeated every aspect of the game. Compared with before, developers only upgrade functions or fix bugs in the game, but now they pay more attention to the enrichment and innovation of content.
A number of new mounts have been added to the WotLK Classic, which was just released not long ago. A mount is one of the most common elements in MMORPGs and a very important means of transportation in the game. After many updates, the types of mounts have also become diversified. Players can not only use creatures, similar to pets that can be directly ridden to act as mounts. Objects that have no living features can also be used. Examples include modern mechanical vehicles resembling motorcycles or mysterious objects like flying carpets. In short, the types of mounts can be very strange.
Some of the mount types mentioned above can be bought with a certain amount of WOTLK Classic Gold only, and some will only be unlocked if you meet the requirements. The mount we are going to introduce today is quite special. Because you can’t simply buy it or get it by earning rewards, you have to make it yourself. This mount is the Wrath of the Lich King Classic’s Mechano-Hog mount, which is odd-looking and looks like a modern motorcycle.
The Mechano-Hog mount is a ground mount. With this mount, you can not only ride at 100% speed but also ride on a sidecar and transport allies with other riders. The Mechano-Hog mount is a Horde-exclusive mount. Since engineering skills are not required to use it with this mount, you can either have Northrend Engineers craft it for you or craft it yourself.
If you’re going to make your own, here are what you need to do.
- Your Engineering level must reach the highest level, which is 450
- You need to increase the favorability of Horde Expedition to you, and the favorability must reach Exalted
Only then can you get the recipe for making the mount from their quartermasters. In the end, all you have to do is collect the materials that appear on the schematic and craft the mount.
After that, you need to quickly level up your Northrend Engineering to level 75 with gold.
Please note: If you don’t have enough WOTLK Gold, you can go to IGGM.com to get it. Free guides about WOTLK Classic are also available there for your reference.
At the same time, you can also increase Horde Expedition’s favorability to you and reach Exalted. Only then will you get the recipe for the Mechano-Hog mount from them. One thing you need to be aware of here, as you continue to level up and gain Horde Expedition favorability, you may have already met the requirements to unlock Mekgineer’s Chopper. This is also a mount and is the Alliance variation of the Mechano-Hog. The achievement “Get to the Choppal” can also be unlocked if you acquire this mount.
If you meet the above requirements, the next thing you need to do is to collect the following materials. It is important to note that most materials are difficult to obtain.
- 2 Arctic Fur
- 1 Elementium-Plated Exhaust Pipe
- 8 Goblin-Machined Piston
- 40 Handful of Cobalt Bolts
- 1 Salvaged Iron Golem Parts
- 12 Titansteel Bar
There are also materials such as the Salvaged Iron Golem Parts, Goblin-Machined Piston, and Elementium-Plated Exhaust Pipe materials, which are very readily available.
You can take two approaches.
- Pay vendors WoW Gold WOTLK to buy these materials directly
- Salvage these materials from the Mechanical bosses of Ulduar
Whatever method you take, you can start crafting your Mechano-Hog mount as long as you gather all the materials mentioned above and level up your Northrend Engineering to level 450.
Fortunately, you can actually get the mount through other channels. You can choose to buy at the auction house or directly from the Engineer player. Of course, if you have a particularly generous Engineer friend, you can even get one for free!
