I've been beta testing all day but I have no idea still how I actually earn the beta testing mount. The stream tonight said to check the forums and perhaps I've missed it but I've been looking for an answer to this for about an hour and can't find one.

The ghostly batwinged pegasus they showed was, I think, the tradeskill mount. Look in your journal on the Achievements tab >> Quests >> Terrors of Thalumbra. The "Far Seas Delver" achievement is the one you want for tradeskills: "I must complete all tradeskill quests in Terrors of Thalumbra".

Domino listed the quests in her first post.

The Ghost Pegasus beta reward is for clearing the Heroics.
The Tradeskill reward for beta testing is a 2 hour 25% increase tithe bauble, 1 Infusion that's 100% chance, and something else.

You can see the rewards under their achievements in your journal.

That's not what they said on the Live stream yesterday at all. They said you could earn the mount in a 'variety of ways'. They were all different mounts but had the same appearance. They mentioned 'doing enough quests' in the Tradeskill line, overland quests, doing enough instances.They didn't say anything about having to complete all of the Heroics. So they lied or are you mistaken? I'd really like to know before I waste my time trying to do something. I would hate to do the overland quest chain only to go: "Oh hey. I can't get the mount." Or do the entire tradeskill line up to the Heroics and then go "Oh, I have to do all of the Heroics in order to get the mount."

Better yet: Here is my beta feedback.

Having tradeskillers being required to do the Heroic Dungeons to complete the tradeskill line is not a good idea. They're Tradeskillers because they usually don't LIKE the PvE end game content. So why force them into having to gear up just to be able to craft new things? I was really disheartened last night hearing that Tradeskillers on beta were stuck on waiting for the Heroics to open up so they could finish the lines. I hate doing Heroics, personally. The groups you get just kick you out if you aren't doing raid quality DPS, you never get to finish them. I forsee really upset people when they find out you have to do Heroics to do tradeskills. REALLY. Upset. People.

Does someone have a link to watch a recording of the livestream, or a transcript/pics? I wasn't able to catch it yesterday.

I did find it kind of odd that a weekly TS quest sent people into the Heroic zone, but I guess that is part of the 'if you want to get the most out of the game, you should try everything' idea. there were 2 weeklies, one is pure TS, the other is TS with going into a heroic.

Oh and the spectral horse was only from the Heroics. if you complete the adv sig line, the reward was one of the new serpent mounts. every other beta reward is just potions/tithe coins/etc.

What a Bauble and an infusion for TS testing? really? lol wow sure glad I beta's the TS stuff in prior xpacs and got the mounts. Sure seems like a pitiful reward. imo.

Domino did say the same looking mount would be available for various playstyles as a test reward. I figure if I'm not calling Gninja a fibber for saying 150 was the new guild level, I won't call her one either /giggle. Time will tell. I test cause I wanna test and be a helper-bee, not cause I deem the reward worthy (though having missed AOM I was so hoping for a crafter type mount)

I do it for both! Plus I enjoy the crowds in beta. Can see in the beginning everyone is just wondering and awed by things and then they (we lol) get down to the serious business of gaming! Can learn a lot too about the game and intricacies from discussions in chat... most times. Wink

I think I worded my post poorly, it was never explicitly stated we'd get one for TS, so even if we didn't, she wouldn't be a fibber Wink
And, agreed, I do do it for both, I like rewards Wink Who doesn't Wink
