Default Unicorns? Anything else?

Trolls, Goblins, Elves, Dragons, blah, blah, blah. Blizzard seems to have added almost everything.

One thing I haven't seen yet are Unicorns. You know: Often white horse-like creatures with a horn on their forehead. They are often mistaken for white meres, most familar with the story that says that "those with the purest of hearts can see a Unicorn", etc. etc.

Anyways, do Unicorns exists in Azeroth? Or anything like it?

They have Zevras which are Zebra Unicorns. So Albino Zevra would do.

let's all hope that blizzard does not do any such thing.

And no there are no real unicorns, they wouldnt really fit in, seeing as how Blizzard's idea of a noble creature is a huge, scaly dragon.

There's a unicorn skin for the Zhevra model, and i believe it shows up at some point, though not as a "Unicorn"

WoW rumours are worth less than loose waste material that finds its way unto the sole of my boots.

I can recall seeing the skin somewhere, i could be completely wrong however. I do know the skin definitely exists.

But let us remember than Blizz artists name their artwork all sorts of wondrous things, because the file names don't mean anything. Some of them can't even spell (Koto beast anyone?).

What does Blizzards rather haphazard file naming ability have anything to do with there being a 'unicorn' skin for the Zhevra and it showing up somewhere in WoW?

Because people go digging through files and find the likes of 'Balrog.blp' and get ideas, when really its just an unfortunate mis-named DoomGuard texture.

And that has what to do with there being a 'unicorn' skin for the Zhevra?

Mecheon has little to show at this moment (5)

Default

High Elven ships have unicorn insignias on them

Premise: Unicorns must be important to a High Elven house, or houses, important enough to own several Destroyers

Conclusion: Unicorns must exist in some fasion or degree in Warcraft

No Unicorns appear in World of Warcraft, aside from Zherva

Premise 1: Unicorns must exist somewhere on Azeroth where we haven't been
Premise 2: Unicorns exist in Quel'Thalas
Premise 3: Unicorns were going to be the Archmage's mount, therefore they must have some magical potential
Premise 4: The Blood Elves are a bunch of magic addicts, and as such have seen what magic can do to other creatures

Conclusion: Corrupted unicorns are the Blood Elven mount

Very sloppy and more guesswork then fact, but better Unicorns than cats

Maybe Bloodelves could ride Draneis or smt. Also insignia doesn't mean it exists... The humans had a big Lion on their sword, while I doubt that some Lion had special meaning to put it on a shields (its more of a symbol in other words)
