As we go into the final week of pre-patch events, it is worth noting that the http://www.wowhead.com/item=163127/smoldering-reins-of-the-teldrassil-hippogryph and http://www.wowhead.com/item=163128/war-torn-reins-of-the-undercity-plaguebat will be made unobtainable on the release of Battle for Azeroth.

Blizzard has changed how Class Trials work, preventing them from looting some specific rare mounts. Previously, class trials were used to check several different realms for rare mounts, often to share or speed up the camping process, which is no longer possible for some.

The following mounts cannot be looted on trial characters:

  • Aeonaxx
  • Time-Lost Proto Drake
  • Poseidus
  • Huolon

The following mounts can be looted on trial characters:

  • Draenor Rares such as Poundfist and Pathrunner
  • Warbringers
  • Grey Riding Camel
  • Alani
  • Garrison Bosses
  • Long Forgotten Hippogryph

https://www.wowhead.com/item=121815/voidtalon-of-the-dark-star is yet to be confirmed as being lootable or not by Class Trial Characters.
