The Winged Guardian

The Winged Guardian serves both as a flying and a ground mount depending on the terrain. When you take to the skies astride a blazing, eagle-winged lion, your comrades will know you mean business. Serious business. The majestic Winged Guardian is a titan creation from Uldum that was designed to protect Azeroth’s most ancient secrets.[1] This Guardian of the Titans will carry you across Azeroth as fast as your riding skill will take you.

Sources[]

The mount was available from the Battle.net Shop or the In-Game Store for $25 or €25. It was released on 31 May 2011.[1]

It is no longer available for purchase since 2 January 2023 as the mount will be available from the Trading Post system in due time.[2]

  • Players who purchase it receive a code similar to that of the loot cards. When you enter the code in your account all characters are mailed a copy of this pet, as well as any future characters you create.[3]
  • When performing a mountspecial, this monster will let forth a gutteral growl and spread its flaming wings.
  • When it runs, it uses the gait of a gryphon and a sabrecat.
  • This mount is also the only mount to emit a ghostly roar when its owner summons it. Although it possesses that roar, the Spectral Tiger is also able to roar like a ghostly lion.
  • When it runs, walks or flies, it leaves behind a trail of flames from its wings. In addition, its mane, wing feathers, tail tuft and paws are covered in a small, but thick flame. If you look closely, you can see that its mane is tied into braids.
