Not the Best Way to Get Yourself Noticed...

We All Want to Stand Out

When immersed in a massively multi-player game such as World of Warcraft, gamers naturally want to have a sense of individuality. Being able to customize one's character and stand out as unique is important. But in a game with a player base of over 8 million monthly subscribers, getting yourself noticed is no small feat.

Of course, you could always spend your time in-game dancing naked outside of your faction auction house. However, that isn't actually as much fun as it might sound.

The most common ways that players draw attention to themselves is by visually customizing their characters through gear transmogrification, vanity pets, and the mounts that they ride.

The World of Warcraft Trading Card Game adds an added dimension to in-game personalization with the addition of rare loot cards that contain codes that are redeemable for exclusive mounts, battle pets, or novelty items.

Please Note: Since Blizzard announced in 2013 that it will no longer produce its trading card game, loot card prices can only be expected to rise in cost as they increase in scarcity.

Redeeming a Code for a Feldrake Mount

How Loot Codes Work

To obtain a TCG item from its loot code, you first must go to WoW's Promotion Page, choose the realm on which you wish to redeem the item, and enter in the 25-digit code from the card. This will then give you another code that you will use in-game. Now start up WoW, travel to Booty Bay, give Landro Longshot that second code, and voila! Your new item will appear in your bag.

TCG Mounts

Top Ten TCG Mounts

With more than 340 mounts in the game and more always being added, finding the mount that is perfect for you can be a daunting task. To aid you in your search, this article will examine the coolest of the cool: the ten most awe-inspiring of the ultra-rare TCG mounts.

The following mounts are sure to draw envious attention from your fellow gamers.

Savage Raptor Mount

10. Savage Raptor

The Savage Raptor is obtained from the Savage Raptor card in the War of the Elements TCG expansion.

This level 20 mount automatically adjusts speed to your highest land riding skill. It is probably most desirable to those who play Alliance characters since they have fewer raptor mounts available to them. Its skin is based on King Mosh in Un'Goro Crater. In this respect, it was unique. However, patch 5.2 introduced the Red Primal Raptor, an identical mount with a slightly different colored saddle.

The chance of obtaining this card is 1/264 booster packs, and it currently retails for around $125.

Wooly White Rhino Mount

9. Wooly White Rhino

The Wooly White Rhino is obtained from the Wooly White Rhino card in the Icecrown TCG expansion.

This is an extremely eye-catching mount since it is the only rhino mount that exists in the game.

The chance of obtaining this card is 1/264 booster packs and, according to wowtcgloot.com, it currently sells for about $150.


Mottled Drake Flying Mount

8. Mottled Drake

The Mottled Drake is obtained from the Mottled Drake card in the Worldbreaker TCG expansion.

This handsome drake is a level 60 flying mount that adjusts its speed to your highest flying riding skill.

The chance of obtaining a Mottled Drake card is 1/264 booster packs and it currently sells for approximately $170.

Magic Rooster Mount

7. Magic Rooster

Magic Rooster Egg is obtained from the El Pollo Grande card in the Fields of Honor TCG expansion.

This delightfully absurd level 40 land mount crows and scratches like a real-life rooster and adjusts its speed to your highest land riding skill.

The chance of obtaining an El Pollo Grande card is 1/264 booster packs and, according to wowtcgloot.com, it currently sells for around $180.

Amani Dragonhawk Mount

6. Amani Dragonhawk

The Amani Dragonhawk is obtained from the Amani Dragonhawk card in the Twilight of the Dragons TCG expansion.

This is a beautiful, vibrantly colored level 60 flying dragonhawk mount. Since fewer dragonhawk mounts are available to Allaince players, this mount is likely to be particularly desirable to them.

The chance of obtaining an Amani Dragonhawk is 1/264 booster packs, and it is currently selling for around $160.

Blazing Hippogryph Mount

5. Blazing Hippogryph

The Blazing Hippogryph mount is obtained from the Blazing Hippogryph card in the Wrathgate TCG expansion.

This stunning level 60 flying hippogryph mount's tail feathers and hooves dance with flames. After this loot card was released, another fiery hippogryph was later introduced -- the Flameward Hippogryph (released in patch 4.1). However, although both are on fire, the two mounts do have different fire patterns and color schemes.

The chance of obtaining a Blazing Hippogryph card is 1/264, and it currently sells for around $175.

Feldrake Flying Mount

4. Feldrake

The Feldrake is obtainable from the Feldrake card in the War of the Ancients TCG expansion.

This gorgeous drake mount has a green glowing glyph above its head and claws that trail green vapor and embers when it moves. The Feldrake is a level 20 mount that adjusts speed to your character's highest riding skill. It is the only dragon mount that can be used as a land mount at level 20.

The chance of obtaining a Feldrake card is 1/264 booster packs and, according to wowtcgloot.com, it currently sells for about $185.

Corrupted Hippogryph Mount

3. Corrupted Hippogryph

The Corrupted Hippogryph mount is obtained from the Corrupted Hippogryph card in the Crown of Heavens TCG expansion.

This cool-looking level 60 hippogryph mount is green with ominous glowing eyes and automatically adjusts its speed to your highest riding skill.

The chance of obtaining a Corrupted Hippogryph is 1/264 booster packs, and it is currently selling for about $140.

Spectral Tiger Mount

2. Spectral Tiger

The Spectral Tiger card is the only loot card that awards two mounts. Reigns of the Spectral Tiger and Reigns of the Swift Spectral Tiger are both awarded when a player redeems a Spectral Tiger card from the Fires of Outland TCG expansion.

The Reigns of the Spectral Tiger produces a level 20 (rare quality) mount; Reigns of the Swift Spectral Tiger produces the level 40 (epic quality) version which has extra armor on its legs and tail. Both the rare and epic version automatically adjust speed to your highest land riding skill and can be learned by same character.

The Spectral Tiger is the rarest of all loot cards, and it produces the most highly sought-after, prestigious, and expensive mount in all of World of Warcraft. The chance of obtaining a Spectral Tiger card is 1/484 booster packs, and it has been known to sell from anywhere between $550 to $1000.

So, why isn't the Spectral Tiger only number two? It's purely a matter of personal tastes, but I would argue that since it has been around for a long time now, it lacks a certain element of surprise. On my server, I have seen it a number of times over the years. This isn't yet the case, however, for number one...


Ghastly Charger Mount

1. Ghastly Charger

Released in February of 2013, The Ghastly Charger is the newest TCG mount, and it is bad-ass. Ghastly Charger's Skull is obtained from the Ghostly Charger card in the Betrayal of the Guardian TCG expansion.

This level 20 spectral skeletal horse emits violet-colored vapor from its mane and hooves. It is usable as both a land and flying mount, adjusting to your highest riding skill.

The chance of obtaining a Ghostly Charger card is 1/264 booster packs and, according to wowtcgloot.com, it is currently selling for around $185.

        Blizzard has just announced that it will be discontinuing its trading card game. This means that redeemable loot cards are likely to skyrocket in price. If you are interested in picking any TCG loot cards up for in-game items, you should probably grab them soon. :(
