    That video would of been better if Boubouille would have loaded like 100 mounts flying around SW: 5 by the mailbox, 7 flying around doing /mountspecial emote, 10 doing backflips and 78 just sitting on the roofs because that's what people do these days xD

    Then again, this time the mount isn't just a recolor, and has it's actual own model and it looks like they put into it more than a few hours, so this one might last allot longer than the horse.

    On a second thought, there will be bazzilion more of these than there ever were horses, so this one might get annoying even faster.

    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*
    People complain about "everything"? It's a fucking reskin, why would you NOT complain? If you pay €15,- or whatever for it, the least you'd expect from Blizzard is to have a little bit of decency and make it a complete new one, or at least other animations.

    After I bought the celestial steed, I vowed I would never dot it again. However after looking at the movie for it ..... I think this is on my shopping list. It looks pretty damn stunning.

    Celestial steed V2

    "Oh hey, this mount looks awesome! Costs money though so not many people will have it - I'll be able to show off!"

    Few days later, Celestial Steeds parading round Dalaran in force.

    "Aw shit.. shouldn't really have spent this money, now everyone has one."

    Anyone?

    Yeah well the very easy solution for you here is to not buy it. Simple. You wouldn't go to a store complaining that every bike has wheels and peddles, and the store owner doesn't do anything new like using tank tracks. If you don't like it, don't buy it. It's a purely cosmetical item that isn't gonna be breaking the game.

    As much as I hate to admit it, this mount is one of the best looking in-game mounts now... Shame it's a store mount, it should be in-game dropped from some raid boss on heroic...

    Hint you little kid. Just because you don't agree with someone, doesn't mean that person can't complain. And how different can they get? Easily, a lot different. Remodelling an existing model and keeping the same animations is lazy. QQ all you want to me with your T2 obsession (hint it sucked, and yes I did BWL when it was normal content), but this is yet another remodel. Yay for the store selling infinite remakes of other mounts <3

    Do you want that mount for free? get a hippogryph, its the same flight model fro what i can see. I love my mounts but will not buy this, i don't want to encourage blizzard to put more mounts in the store

    We raiders will be rewarded soon enough with the Beryl Firehawks.
    No! back off, that is my mount for 125 mount achievement!!

    So hey, my griff was ripped off! QQQQQ.

    Sarcastic qq aside, that mount is god damn beautiful. And, it doesn't sparkle. Meaning my manly characters [mostly orcs lol] don't have to sit on a pos wyvern or a sparkle horse! And now my lowbie toons have two flying mounts to switch between now, huzzah.



    Lemme guess. You don't use nether drakes anymore because everyone has them? You don't use Protos anymore because everyone has atleast one version? You don't use Nether rays anymore because everyone has them? You don't use a dragonhawk/hppogriff because everyone has one? You don't use land mounts because my god, everyone has one! And oh, you can't use frostwyrms because everyone has those! I bet you don't use the festival mounts because again my god, everyone has them!!! So what must you ride? The pimp rocket from Love is in the air!

    But oh I forget, that rocket only exists like about 1/2 a server!

    So what do you ride sir that 'looks awesome' yet, is not commonplace?



    Look, here, have this violin. That's so small it fits between my fingers and thumb. Skeeekeeek eeeeeekeeeek.

    I don't care if you feel deprived of awesomesauce. Because -I- am not.
    I agree with him to an extent, I enjoy using the rare mounts, I don't really have the dilemmacas a Druid because I just use my flight form but I use my amani bear as a ground mount for that reason mainly. Each to their own I say, people verbally assaulting one another because their preference differs on a cosmetic levelcin this thread is quite funny. I sure as hell won't buy the lion but everyone else be my guest.

    As awesome as this mount is, I remember drooling over the sparkle pony. After logging in and seeing cubic shit-tons of noobs just sitting on it afking in dalaran, seeking attention, it lost all it's magic. The mount still looked pretty but I wasn't going to be in "that" club. And this will probably happen to the fire lion as well. Sad, it would've made an awesome raid mount. (same with sparkle pony, it looked like Algalon's choice of transportation)

    Tbh I dont like the mount at all, the head is too big and animations are just copied from gryphon.

    Hint, you little whiner. Just because you agree with irrational whining doesn't mean he should. Besides, how much difference do you want in a flying mount? In the end, they will all make the same motions, because there are not over 9000 unique ways to use wings to fly. So what use would there be in creating a whole different skeleton for one, simple almost unnoticable jerk or flap of this or that wing? Also. As far as I know, no one is there behind you, holding a gun to your head; forcing you to buy a certain winged mount. If you don't like it, isn't it simple? Don't buy it. There's no proper argument you can have to protect you from that fact. And if you feel affected by other people having the mount while you don't, even though you think it isn't worthy of your almighty money. Then you're oversensitive and I would advise you to stop playing a game. Any game until you'd feel less offended over trivial issues.

    As for Paladin T2. No, it isn't the best set, unlike what many say. But you can't say it's ugly. Because if so, then what set is not ugly in your opinion? Sigh..

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that. XD Not only is the head a massive unmoving stone like thing the front legs, when in the air, look like stumpy shetland pony legs. It just looks off.. maybe if they fixed the armor on the front legs and toned down the size of the head. From behind it almost looks like it could be a horse and that'd fit better with the scale of it's body than that....head.

    Wow the winged guardian mount looks amazing! I can't wait to get it, it sure makes up for the sparkle pony fiasco. Wow this mount looks so amazing I would have to say its right up with ashes of a'lar now!
