A vicious raptor for a vicious Troll - a match made in heaven.
Swift Raptor TCG.jpg

Raptor mounts are almost exclusively Horde only mounts.

The ferocity of Kalimdor’s raptors has enthralled the Darkspear trolls ever since their arrival on the Echo Isles years ago. The tribe considers a raptor to be the purest embodiment of the hunter’s essence, and as such, a tamed reptilian is prized as a mount. Skilled Darkspear riders have even been known to channel their raptors’ savagery to suit their will. Possession of these predators is also one of the most auspicious signs of status among trolls; many have died trying to subdue these swift and deadly raptors, and to control one indicates great station.[2]

Faction mounts: Apprentice

These mounts give a 60% speed increase on land. You can purchase these mounts from Zjolnir <Raptor Handler> in Sen'jin Village in Durotar so long as your character has riding skill of 75 (obtainable at level 20). If you are playing as any race other than a Troll, you will also need to have Exalted reputation with the Darkspear Trolls.

Faction mounts: Journeyman

These mounts give a 100% speed increase on land. You can purchase these mounts from Zjolnir <Raptor Handler> so long as your character has riding skill of 150 (obtainable at level 40), and are restricted similarly to the apprentice mounts above.
