After an amazing discussion both here and elsewhere on the interwebs we get a Blizzard update. Still not a good reason why they were going to do it in the first place, but the voices of the beta have been heard, and that’s all that really matters.
Straight from Blizzard via twitter, to you:

So what does this really mean?
The forum post helps extrapolate:
We have been discussing this issue the last couple of days and we made the call to make the following mounts account-wide:
- Traveler’s Tundra Mammoth
- Grand Expedition Yak
- Mekgineer’s Chopper
- Sandstone Drake
- Grand Ice Mammoth
- Ice Mammoth
- Jeweled Onyx Panther (all color variants)
- Cloud Serpents (all color variants)
At this point, the only mounts that are not account-wide are either class specific or rewarded from PVP. We feel like both these types of mounts should still be character specific.
Thanks for your feedback on this issue!
So let’s go back to the list of non-account bound mounts from MMO-Champion’s chart, edited by yours truly.
This list… makes sense.
This list, I can live with.
Thank you Blizzard. I’m now looking forward to MoP even more than I was previously.
