MMO-Champion - Account-wide Mounts on Beta, Pandaren Voices, Blue Posts
Account-wide Mounts now on Beta
It was announced during the Mists of Pandaria Press Tour that mounts would become account-wide on release or in a patch shortly after. It looks like it will be release after all, and the feature is now available on beta (but heavily bugged).

I present to you, my mage riding my paladin's mount! (Obviously, we have no way to know if this is intended as part of the account-wide mounts)



Pandaren Voices now on Beta
Pandaren Voices are now also partially available on beta. For the moment only a few NPCs will talk to you but it should give you a good idea of where the game is headed for their voices.

Scarlet Monastery Cathedral bug on Beta
Yep, the collision on the cathedral door is indeed totally broken and you can't get to the last boss. We'll fix this as soon as we can, but it might take a beta update or two for the fix to reach you all. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

PvP and bringing the "War" back in World of Warcraft
We're with you on the idea of getting people engaged in PvP again within the world. As I've said previously though, we have to be careful about how we do that. We'll hopefully have more information for you all on what we have planned that will assuage some fears of those who aren't very PvP passionate, while (hopefully) still making PvP compelling for those who do love taking part. (Raises her hand) While we have many players who enjoy PvP, we have a larger contingent that enjoys PvE more. That makes maintaining balance between the concepts a bit more challenging, but we love challenges.

As far as the story goes, we've talked a bit about that and what's coming is twofold. War is coming to Pandaria, which (while it's had its strife in the past) is largely a peaceful region of Azeroth. That's going to change as the Horde and Alliance start stirring up the dust of the past. Beyond what happens in Pandaria, the Horde and Alliance will be at each others' throats once more. We've mentioned it many times before, but we really do feel that the "war" of Warcraft is going to be featured a bit more prominently in the story. It may not necessarily translate to all out chaos in a direct PvP way, but it will definitely be seen playing out in the storyline itself.

Again, we'll try to bring you more information specifically about the PvP end of our plans (more detail of what was heard from the press event) and get everyone caught up to speed on what we hope this will mean going forward. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    So far account wide feature I am loving. Only thing I hope is that if a mount requires X to use it you can not, example the flying carpet. Also class specific stay class specific.

    And don't you dare complain that it is a cosmetic change and doesn't affect gameplay. Everything in this game is cosmetic. Have we really moved into a realm where all of our characters are considered the same character? That's a bit sad.
    Mounts are cosmetic, they don't affect your contribution to any encounter PvE or PvP, farming, grinding, profession or anything else.
    Gear, while cosmetic, is a direct improvement on how your character performs it's role, if you cannot see the difference, then by all means, keep whining for made up reasons, although, that's a bit sad.

    No this move make's lot of sense in my opinion. It is something that a lot of people want.

    You always get a few idiot cavemen trying to fight back against the inevitable tide of change in these threads, no matter how good or convenient the feature is.

    Words cannot express my happiness about this being in already! I couldn't care less if the entire expansion was only comprised of account-wide mounts/achieves/pets and nothing else, I would be a happy camper cuz now I am finally FREE from feeling obligated to playing my main and nothing else! (mim's head/invincible/ony drake/14k achieve pts will pigeon hole you)

    Love having the option of using a DK deathcharger (assuming blizz doesnt reverse this for class specific mounts) and my repair mount as well.
    Blizzard has said in the past restrictions will be in place ie you can't use a mount at a level before it is obtainable.

    InvinCIBLE not InviSIBLE.

    Hope the remaining music is as good as the intro screen one though. Cant stand listening to the music so far in wow since its never relevant for the area.

    Invincible/Invisible...its a joke, sheesh.

    Very very happy camper to see the account wide stuff.

    Kinda doubt they will make the class specific ones account wide but who knows.

    I highly doubt you'll be able to ride a mount which requires level 85 to acquire. Also, I bet they lock class restricted mounts to their appropriate class.
