World of Warcraft-players have chosen their free Shadowlands pet

World of Warcraft-players were given the opportunity to pick a new free mount which would come in Shadowlands. After two weeks and many votes, players have chosen the Wandering Ancient as the new mount.

Blizzard gave players five options: Wandering Ancient, Soaring Spelltome, Nerubian Swarmer, Curious Caterpillar, and Gooey Slimesaber. Eventually the Wandering Ancient won the competition after more than 160.000 fans chose for their favorite. The Wandering Ancient managed to get 87.000 of the total votes.

“After two weeks and with hundreds of thousands of players internationally casting their votes, the popular vote for the mount you want to ride is: The Wandering Ancient!” Blizzard says on its site. “Our designers will now work on bringing this mount to life, and we’ll provide more information to share with you closer to its release.”

Players will receive the mount somewhere in Q1 2021 if the choose to buy Shadowlands.
