Mechano-Hog is a chopper vehicle that is created by top Horde engineers. This vehicle allows one party member to ride along in the side-car.

Mount Journal

Difficult to build and to maintain, these hogs more than make up for their expense through sheer cool factor.

Activating the Sidecar

Mechano-hog 1.jpg

To activate the Mechano-hog's sidecar and carry a passenger, simply invite them to a group. The player's pointer will then turn to a green mounting arrow when they mouse over the Mechano-hog, allowing them to jump on while the sidecar deploys itself automatically.

Notes

  • The vehicle comes with a license plate with the word "PWN" on it.
  • If the driver enters a phased area that is different to the passenger's phase, then the passenger phases out but the sidecar remains deployed. The passenger sees the driver, though. If either dismount in a differently phased area, the driver sees the passenger briefly appear, then both phase out on each other's screens.

Achievements

Obtaining this mount awards the achievement [Get to the Choppa!].

Patch changes

  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.1.0 (2009-04-14): This mount is no longer considered a vehicle.
Now fully a mount, with fall damage, instant mount/dismount, and swimming ability.
