Will Blizzard ever give a pet Oondasta or bat flying mounts?

These are very important questions that must be answered. As a pet collector, I think Oondasta is the cutest little (big) dinosaur in all the world, and as an Undead Warrior, I'm tired of dragons and windriders, and argue that if Hippogryphs are available in mass quantities to Alliance (notably Night Elves) that we too should get bats.

And if the issue is that 'bats can't fly during the daytime', well, when you summon the bats during the day, they wear funny, giant bat-sized sunglasses.

There is nothing that prevents bats from flying in daylight. It's just that it doesn't coincide with their sleep schedule.

There's currently four baby raptors in game that look like little Oondastas, minus the weapons on his side. They drop off Dinomancers.

They're saving those for next expansion. Gotta come up with something to keep people coming back

Yes, and Oondasta has a pet version that was cut last second, IIRC because the model wasn't done and the temp model was just scaled-down so had a huge poly count.

Bat mounts will probably be implimented some point in 5.3 or 5.4

Weapons need to stay the same other than bows/xbows/guns. This is to prevent noobs being owned by 85s in tuxedos wielding flowers...like wtf?-Rydethetiger

How would the bat work on the ground? That would look really weird. At least the Hippogryph has legs so it can trot around.

If the Druid flight form is any indication, they'd just fly really low rather than actually walking around.

The same way every other flying mount without legs works? Hover just above the ground.
