Black Qiraji Battle Tank Retirement?

by

Myself and Cablin have been working on getting the Red, Yellow, Blue and Green Qiraji Battle Tanks from Ahn’Qiraj, since it classes as mounts so weblackq can work on getting the Albino Drake. They can only be ridden inside the instance, so you wont ever see them outside unless Blizzard changes that.

Its not that hard to duo, I just keep Lifebloom on him and since he’s an awesome tank anyway, I can usually help with a little DPS.

Anyway.

We knew the Black Qiraji Battle Tank was near impossible, so it doesn’t really bother our mount count that its being taken out. But its still a shame! The Black Tank is a typical ‘oldbie’ status symbol, and now even the most intrepid mount collectors can’t get them;

Going forward, the gates of Ahn’Qiraj will start out open on all new realms that are created. While we recognize that this is a unique event, we feel that the complexity of this event can cause various issues that negatively impacts a player’s game play experience. By automatically opening the gates and allowing immediate access to the Ahn’Qiraj instances, we would like to promote the higher level content that is available as well as ensure a smooth overall experience for players on these new realms.

This means that you can’t participate in the event itself, from which the Battle Tank is a reward. I know a few people who actually attempted to get the mounts by playing a new character on a new realm, so its not unheard of. These bugs are desirable!

The Black Qiraji Battle Tank will no longer be available with this change to the AQ event.

So, there you have it folks. People who have the Black Qiraji Battle Tank? Treat him/her well and keep them polished! (Thank you to Warcraft Mounts for the information!)
