I think it's time for some Immatree.
In Rift I can ride a mount right away at level 1. Why not in WoW?
Honestly, I wouldn't be very surprised to see Blizzard give mounts to level 1 players some day. They might just make all toons have the basic riding skill and give everyone free basic mounts, or they might create a new lower-level riding skill. Every other game on the planet seems to want people to be able to mount up right away (no doubt so you can have "kewl" mounts without working for them, like you did in that "old" game WoW).
I honestly don't like it. Maybe I'm just an old fart, but back in the day, you used to have to work to get a mount. And damnit, I like that.
I know its a longshot but seeing zg and za come back, it might be possible to see a new troll raid?
Blizzard has dropped some hints lately that there is more to come. I wouldn't rule it out for the future. Zarhym said recently:
I'm just wondering if this isn't a little soon to be pushing out a new raid tier. Have all that many guilds cleared the current tier? I consider my raiding guild to be about average and we're roughly halfway through the current content.
It's a good thing to wonder, but fear not, the PTR is just that -- a test realm. This patch won't make it to the live realms for a few months.
