    I'd rather it was something to do with being in the beta. We never got the Mountain Dew/Warbot one in the UK xD
    >_< Battlebot! (I don't care that Blizzard had to change the name because of potential liability - it'll always be Battlebot!)

    I think the Hearthstone promotion might end up being similar to the Diablo III promotion website that Blizzard had going prior to D3's launch.

    No. Everyone had the ability to run the raid. It's in game and anyone had the chance to do it. There wasn't a, "I hope I get invited to be able to go to these raids."

    Also back then LFR didn't exist and the low pop realm I was on used to have tons of pugs all the time.

    This looks like a tooltip for store mounts, no?

    Hearthsteed. The icon matches the pegasus mount models from last week.
    This is tied into a Hearthstone promotion, Hearthstoned.
    The Hearthstone FAQ specifically mentions that beta testers will get a special reward.

    Also, as a thank-you for testing out the in-game store during Hearthstone’s beta phase, everyone who purchased a card pack in the beta test will get a special gift.

    Let me guess... the Pegasus mount will be a reward for beta testers? Huge mount collector here and I'll be really pissed if I don't get this one because I just "didn't got choosen".

    Pissed enough that have missed the Tyrael's charger...

    Yeah, figured it'd mean forking over RL money.
