If we talk about all new World of Warcraft Shadowlands mounts list, most likely you won’t need to train Artisan ranks for mounts anymore as they might be removed by the developers.
Back in the day, using this artisan training, you could fly a mount at 280% speed. This was kind of an intermediate point between the Expert speed (which had 100-120% of flying speed) and the Master speed (310-330% respectively).
In order to train Artisan, players had to pay 5000 gold, and this is quite expensive for many of them. Besides that, Artisan training is required if you need to receive the flying speed of Master.
So, the decision of the developers to remove this stage is a pretty good idea. Players can get rid of the need to complete numerous mount training, and also save a bundle. Anyway, without this stage, leveling still remains exciting and interesting.
For a long time, WoW Shadowlands Mounts have been considered as one of the most valuable prizes in WoW game for a reason. Obtaining at least one of them required from a player not only good playing skills but also significant time costs.
It was not only the WoW game that developed over time with the implementation of the new classes or some changes in the available classes but also the tastes of the players changed regarding their favorite classes.
We used to think that the player who had got Warcraft SL mounts should be considered as the most prestigious one because this was the best example of his gaming experience and skills for playing this character.
