    You're all missing the real thing going on here!

    How does he go from jumping to flying in the video?! Unless the demo person had no flying at level 90, then went and bought flying just for the vid? Or is there two versions of the mount, one ground, one flying?

    doesnt mmo champion do some weird personal server type thingamajig?

    Good question... the gear is the same, so it's pretty likely the same character... but they don't normally add two versions. Probably didn't have flying before and then go it after like you said.

    I was going to say, I wondered if the people making all these videos use their own servers. Who knows...

    It is the ugliest mofo I've ever seen in this game!
    YES it got details, But HOLY SHIT it is ugly,

    Wont waste a Euro on this thing, ever.

    A flying Troll Dinosaur ( Pterosaur ) mount would have been soo soo much cooler than a flying goat! Just saying....

    It would be rather funny if MMO champion used some illegal private server for their videos and the like.

    WE'RE ON TO YOU MMOCHAMPION! GONNA BRING DOWN THE LAW!

    Another mount that in no way makes me want to buy a mount. Yay.

    The only paid mount that doesn't look like ass is the winged guardian.

    It's an MMO-Champion model video. It's not captured on real servers.

    "Technically" it was a merger. Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision, is CEO of the merged entity. Which means Activision controls Blizzard. regardless of who bought who.

    Pretty fancy private server they have if it even has stuff like the rare spawn dragon flying around, STILL ON TO YOU MMOCHAMPION!

    I guess "Retarded Flying Lion Mount" finally got some competition.

    Mounts are acceptable to pay extra for because they don't give an advantage to players that decide to buy 'em. You can't replace it with ''anything and everything'' because that would include things that give an advantage, causing the game to become Pay2Win.

    There's enough mounts in this game to get the 150 mounts achievement, without having to rely on luck.

    Prime example of blizzard going to far with designs... which they do 90% of the time.....Everything looked fine until some idiot stuck a big pointy shield on the front of that thing....

    Precisely my thought.

    Seriously, put the pointy thing on its head and make it leave trails of rainbows, would've sold way more.

    Ah you stole the words right out of my mouth. I wish more people could break themselves out of their tiny bubbles and learn something about the cultural influences from their oh so favorite game.

    At least until everyone and their grandmother purchases the damn things.
