Welcome back to the Battle for Azeroth datamine-palooza, for another round of sneaks peeks at what’s coming in the next WoW expansion. Up next? A multi-seat flying mount that seems unlike anything else we’ve seen in the game so far.
Here’s everything you need to know about Battle for Azeroth’s Allied Races.
The Hivemind is a new multi-seat flying mount with some very interesting abilities. The more players who join the Hivemind, the faster its movement speed goes, stacking as more players link up. Some players are speculating that this may let a massive group of players transform and fly together as a single unit, but it seems more likely that it’s simply a unique form of multi-passenger mount, but either way it’s quite a unique take on the idea.
Details on the “Joined Hivemind” effect also explain how those movement boosts work. Every new person who joins the mount adds 10% to its speed, and the buff keeps stacking. Possibly indefinitely, though more likely the boosts will be limited by however many “seats” are in the Hivemind.
