The Hivemind secret mount was datamined in the Battle For Azeroth alpha.
Remember the Hivemind mount? Players datamined the mount in the Battle For Azeroth alpha. However, the mount itself wasn’t actually seen in the game until today. The Secret Finding community found and acquired the mount today. The same community has also helped players find other mounts, such as the Lucid Nightmare and Riddler’s Mind-Worm. While players thought the Conspicuous Note was the first step in acquiring the Hivemind, it was instead the first step for the Baa’l battle pet and the Waist of Time.
Players have to have the Talisman of True Treasure Tracking to find many of the items needed for the mount. You can purchase this in Shattrath City to start your adventure. You will then have to solve a series of intricate puzzles to acquire the Hivemind mount. This will take you all over Azeroth and Draenor to acquire the four colored monocles. You will then have to find a series of letters and items that will eventually take you to the location of the mount itself. The Secret Finding community traced the Hivemind mount to the Court of Stars.
You can do the majority of the quest solo. However, when you get to the Withered part of the quest in Suramar, you’ll have to recruit some friends to help you get past them as each of the Withered NPCs represent a different colored monocle. This may reflect the fact that the Hivemind is a multi-person mount and thus would require multiple players to solve one part of the puzzle.
