When the next WoW expansion Shadowlands is released in a few months and we take our first steps into the Shadowlands, not only new enemies and challenges await us, but also plenty of new mounts. We now have more information about the mounts you can get in Ardenwald: The current build of the Shadowlands beta has added some additional information about the new mounts, including source information and description texts. We summarize this information for you (via Wowhead).

A note beforehand: The translation of the description comes from us - the actual text may differ in the release version of Shadowlands.
