Summon a Random Mount based on ridding level, flying skill, location, and area. Simply create a macro containing /mnt or /rmount and it will summon a usable mount for the area you are in. For Options type /mnt help.
Thanks to Hendew (the original author) for his hard work in creating this great add-on.
Updated toc for 5.2

Improved savedvariables handling to pave the way for further improvements
Removed debug code that had served its purpose and some unused code
Fix bug with adding new saved variable for default weight.
Improved setweight command:
/mnt setweight [0-1000] will change the default weight (100) for all mounts that have no weight set including future trained mounts
/mnt setweight [pattern] will reset any mounts matching the pattern to the default weight
/mnt setweight [0-1000] [pattern] will continue to set the specified weight to any mounts matching the pattern

Added /mnt setweight [0-1000] [pattern] command to set weights for mounts which affects how often they are chosen (default is 100)
Allow all land capable mounts to be selected in AQ not just qiraji mounts
Improved the logic that selects which type of mount to try
Use IsSpellKnown() to check riding skills
Create frame in lua instead of xml
Added Grand Gryphon and Grand Armored Gryphon
Based on v1.06.10
Temporary nag messages to collect feedback. I am considering removing the location filtering feature and adding a way to weight how often to use each mount. If you get a message about detecting unknown mount capabilities then please post the number(s) from the message or follow the directions from v1.06.11 notes.
Added code to mine certain data that the API provides about mounts in order to better understand it. Please open your \World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\[username]\SaveVariables\RandomMountContinued.lua in a text editor and copy+paste the contents to this bug ticket: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/random-mount/tickets/26-data-collection/ All data is appreciated but data from people with rare aquatic mounts (Reins of Poseidus, Sea Turtle, and Riding Turtle) is especially needed.

Forgot a pair of parenthesis, added search check, included waterfly into saved variables, updated all version numbers throughout the files
Added a NEW feature that was highly requested. Water Flying
What is Water Flying: This enables you to summon a flying mount while you are at the surface of a body of water
The main caveat is you must be mounted on a riding mount, at the surface of the water, have waterfly enabled, and must NOT have a breath bar
If you meet all criteria above but are underwater you will get an error saying you can't use that here
If you are not mounted and on the surface you must hit the macro TWICE
Once to summon riding mount
Once to Dismount and summon flying mount

/mnt removeloc % (zone:mount name1, mount name2, ...): Removes locations and mounts from location checking. Separate mounts with commas.
/mnt loctable: Print the current location filtering table.
/mnt clearloc: Clears location filters
- Convenience Functions
/mnt whereami: Prints your zone and mini-map zone.
You can now remove mounts based on spellId, useful for removing mounts that contain the same name.
Location filtering: This allows you to specify what mounts get summoned in what areas. You can specify a zone or min-map zone (case insensitive) and part or all of a mount's name. Enable location filtering with "/mnt locfilter".
Add locations and mounts "/mnt addloc zone:mount1,mount2,..."
zone can be a map zone and mini-map zone. Case doesn't matter, but it must be spelled correctly and with all punctuation as well. Separate with a colon ":" then specify mounts separated by commas ",". Mount names do not need to be the full name, partial names are fine, example ("wolf").
"/mnt addloc dalaran:talbuk,wolf,skeletal"
"/mnt addloc krasus' landing:drake,dragonhawk"
To remove a location, or mount from a location use "/mnt removeloc zone:mount1,mount2,..."
"/mnt removeloc dalaran" - Removes Dalaran from the location table,
"/mnt removeloc dalaran:wolf,talbuk" - Removes both wolf and talbuk from Dalaran but preserves all remaing mounts.
To clear the entire location table use "/mnt clearloc "
Print the current location table with "/mnt loctable"
safefly: If enabled, when you are flying you must double click the macro or button to dismount, to help prevent accidental suicide.
Mount Filtering: If you are tired of a specific type of mount, you can use a filter so it will no longer summon any of those type. For example, if you don't want to summon nether ray type "/mnt filter" to enable mount filtering and then type "/mnt remove ray" Any mounts containing "ray" in the name will no longer be summoned, be as vague or specific as you wish, if you wanted to you could remove all mounts with a "e" in them, I'm not sure I would recommend it but you could do it.
If Random Mount generates any errors please enable debug mode(/mnt debug) and post the code that it prints in your chat window in your comments.
Make sure that you post what version you are using.
