Patch 3.3 PTR: Invincible

You know how like Michael Bay wanted Transformers to be a story about a boy and his car? Or how John Carpenter made a film about one teen's dangerous obsession with a murderous car? Well, the World of Warcraft version is about to come to life -- or unlife -- when patch 3.3 finally goes up. MMO Champion has uncovered model files for Invincible, the Lich King's personal steed. As the datamining suggests -- "Invincible - Summons and dismisses the flying undead horse Invincible. This mount changes depending on your Riding skill and location." -- players might actually have a shot at obtaining what is, in my humble opinion, the most badass pixel-by-pixel mount in the game. Ever.

The horse has some serious lore to it, too. As many players have already discovered, Invincible has an unearthed grave in the game located near the Balnir Farmstead in Tirisfal Glades.

The tombstone reads:



INVINCIBLE
Beloved steed of Prince Arthas Menethil
Loyal and great of heart in life, may you find peace in death.
Pure streams and green pastures, devoted friend.


Yeah. The horse was so badass even in life that Arthas, as soon as he murders his own father, goes straight out to his old horse's grave and raises it up to be his undead steed. I mean, it probably seemed like the perfect way to celebrate offing his old man. The horse is filled with so much badassery that the armor on one hoof has more detail than all of Thrall's level 30 greens.

In fact, the horse was destined to be badass from birth, as it was, according to Christie Golden, "born on (a) bitter winter day." Of course, that could also mean it was destined to die from pneumonia, but no, this horse is so totally badass that its name is a freaking adjective. Every player with a death knight should now probably curl up in a fetal position and dream tearful dreams of riding around in a flying mount made of pure badassery.

If you'll excuse me, I need to lie down and weep for a bit.



Patch 3.3 is the last major patch of Wrath of the Lich King. With the new Icecrown Citadel 5-man dungeons and 10/25-man raid arriving soon, patch 3.3 will deal the final blow to the Arthas. WoW.com's Guide to Patch 3.3 will keep you updated with all the latest patch news.
