The pandaren have long sought mounts that embody their values: patience and strength. With a naturally armored hide, even gait (no matter how heavy the passenger), and the relaxed attitude that welcomes long journeys, the Dragon Turtle is perfect for the pandaren adventurer. Indigenous to mainland Pandaria, these fine steeds are easily outfitted with the essentials: maps, cushions, footstools, and brew-storage. Comfortable and hardy, the dragon turtle's slow, even stride will gently ease passengers into new parts of the world and/or a relaxing nap time.

Trading card game
In early beta builds, having an Alliance premade pandaren buy a dragon turtle would make that mount available to a Horde-side character via account binding.
