    Looks nice, though those flashes of light might be disturbing.

    "Sissy"?

    *turns demon form and shoves your face into the mud* "Anach kyree..."


    Also lol at the bandages remark.

    At least with the celestial steed it was, you know, new and stuff. They could have at least change the animations, but to each their own.
    See: Invincible.

    The instant the lion comes out I am buying it.

    I don't care how much it costs, I must have this mount.

    well would you look at that, blizz copied all the animations from the gryphon mount. What a rip.

    I'm surprised some people are so excited for it. Its a re-skinned/slightly re-modeled gryphon mount.

    I have a feeling blizzard is going to make a ton of money of this mount.... I vowed never to buy anything cosmetic from the blizzard store but this seems to be a must have.

    We're all gonna get bored of the lion when everyone has it. He does have a nice beard.

    I'm a Warrior and want my triage spec for pvp.

    Yop really been only a matter of time for Blizz to actually sell an awesome mount. I can't very well imagine a successfull TRH campaign about this thing but will see.

    Really? You're going to complain? Holy crap, people do complain about everything.

    Seriously, how much different can they get? Man people will find anything to QQ about.


    I would love to see a Paladin in T2 riding around on that, and a pally in t6 riding around on that. I can't wait for it to go live. *crazy grin*

    ... How would you expect it to move? By the way, if you didnt buy it, you were not ripped off.

    Now, if you bought it, and found out that it did not fly, that would be a rip.

    I would really like the winged guardian, but I'm waiting to see how popular it is. I remember I almost bought the celestial steed on the day it came out and before I logged in. I couldn't find my card or something so I logged in anyway and saw one. Then another. Then another three. Then realised Dalarn was crawling with them. So was Org. And all the leveling areas. Now I'm glad I didn't get one.

    I know some people get all huffy about people who say this - the whole "If you like a mount it shouldn't matter how many other people have it" arguement. But part of the appeal of these mount is that they "look awesome". Things lose the ability to "look awesome" when they are very commonplace - people were awestruck by the cinema, TV sets, washing machines and, more recently. 3D movies. People would gather round rich peoples' windows and peer in at TV sets when they first came out because they were so amazing. Now they are so common place that we give a new TV set about as much admiration as we might give a new coat or a new pair of socks. Same thing with the celestial steed and, I suspect, with this mount. It looks amazing in this vid - flying solo through SW, but if that video was the thing flying through SW and passing by about 30-40 other people on identical mounts it would suddenly look a bit ridiculous.

    So I'll probably pass - and if you buy it, more power to you. Maybe you are a bit less shallow than me. Or maybe a bit more, I'm not sure.

    I just wish they would make a new new set of mounts that were cool and that I could work for on my own. My guild is kinda crap at killing final bosses in raid tiers and my ability to make gold is pathetic - and I'm getting bored of my netherdrakes.
