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)

    Rage because of something in beta that doesn't even work for half the people trying to use it?

    Chill.

    Though...The "lolumad" side of me kind of wishes that they wouldn't restrict class mounts just to watch the mass crying on blizzards forums......

    I hope not. I can understand maybe keeping class and profession restrictions, but also keeping the reputation requirement would kind of defeat the purpose of having account-wide mounts. :S

    I honestly hope they leave the class mount thing as is. I was so pissed that the Argent Charger was Paladin only. Complete BS. Coolest looking mount in the game and only one class can use it?

    I like those cavern-like looking instances where you can actually go underground like AQ 40 raid, wailing caverns or even deadmines (would be cool if you could also exit from the other side not in the same place as you enter the instance). It feels more adventurous to me. Also..Moar of Dat Mantid Content!!

    "account-wide" so I would guess it doesn't matter which servers your alts are on, you get the mounts too.

    Binds when picked up
    Mount
    Requires Level 20
    Requires Apprentice Riding
    Item Level 20
    Use: Teaches you how to summon this mount. This mount changes depending on your Riding skill and location.

    Just imagine that!
    If you know what I mean....

    Does anyone know of an addon that keeps tracks of mounts across your characters?

    BTW best move ever Blizzard. Make the game less tedious imo.
