Notes and trivia
- These creatures are based on the qilin (麒麟, qílín), a Chinese mythological creature which somewhat resembles a cross between a horse and a dragon, and which is often referred to as a "Chinese unicorn". The similarly-named quilen in World of Warcraft bear little resemblance to the mythological qilin and are instead based on Chinese guardian lions.
- Cloudstriders were first introduced in patch 5.1 in the form of the mount, though at the time of its release it was not identified as such and did not show any hint of a connection to the Shadowlands. No other members of the race were seen until World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, four expansions after the Swift Windsteed was introduced.
- Their sound files are named "SwiftWindSteed".
