Like their Southern Kalimdor siblings, the magical beasts[citation needed]  called vampire bats[1] of Zul'Aman have always savored the frenzied turmoil of battle. This chaotic disposition has naturally aligned them with the Forsaken, who continue their struggle against the Lich King's Scourge while maintaining a tense alliance with the Horde. In addition to ferrying those who pay for their service throughout Lordaeron, the vampire bats also act as scouts for the Dark Lady. Vampire bats have been trained as scouts and mounts by the Forsaken of the Undercity and the Amani trolls of Zul'Aman.[2]



As a companion

A  [Vampiric Batling] dropped from Mob Tenris Mirkblood in Karazhan during the Scourge Invasion.

Method of transportation

Vampire bats have been trained as mounts by the Forsaken. The flight masters of the Forsaken called Bat Handler offer characters the opportunity to fly to other flight masters. To discourage players from attacking Bat Handlers, they are usually level 85 elites and summon two Horde Enraged Felbats when someone attacks him.

A Captured Riding Bat is one of the Forsaken mounts that was captured by the forces of King Genn Greymane during the final battles for Gilneas City and is also ridable as a worgen player during the quest A IconSmall Worgen Male.gifIconSmall Worgen Female.gif [1-30] Slowing the Inevitable.

The  [Armored Bloodwing] is a monstrous, flesh-eating bat mount directly purchasable from Blizzard, for $25US or €20/£17, and scales with the player's riding skill and location.
