Water walking mount

Water striders no longer walk on water?? account bound mount does not walk on water. Is this stupid MOUNT ABILITY removed in classic areas??

For some reason they added an equipment slot to your mount in the last patch. If you had a water walking mount you should have an equippable thing in your mailbox. Equip that in your mount slot and you can walk on water with any mount.

It’s because people were pretty much only riding around on the striders and not using any other mounts. They wanted to give you a chance to use other mounts, as well as adding some neat functionality like gliding and not getting dazed.
