MMO-Champion - Warforged Nightmare - Available Now In-Game Through the Shop
Update: The Warforged Nightmare is now on the shop site!

Warforged Nightmare - Available Now In-Game Through the Shop
It looks like the Warforged Nightmare isn't available on the website yet, but it appears to be live in game in the US. This mount costs $30, which is $5 more than the usual $25 price.

Using the item that comes in the mail will give you the Nightmarish Hitching Post, which can be used to gain a buff that makes all of your mounts look like the Warforged Nightmare for the next 20 minutes.

    Maybe you missed the memo, but that's what businesses do, make money for their employees and shareholders. Your, and any other whiner's, misplaced righteous indignation is laughable and idiotic.

    I'm sure it probably didn't take more then one person to make this. So many people act like the whole developement team and all of Blizzard came together to make a mount.

    It's based off the Swift Windsteed skeleton, and has the forsaken mount look just remodeled to look metal.

    If you don't want it, don't buy it, people.

    As for me, I bought it. People waste money on smoking, drinking, eating more food then required, buying real life things they don't need and hardly use. This is no different. It's not needed and if anyone wishes to spend their money they worked for on it, so let them.

    So... no content for months, and no content to come for several more, AND when that content comes you'll have to pay for it (because it's an expansion..) at an also increased from usual price. All the while, those still playing have to dish out 15$ a month.
    What does Blizzard do? Release a new mount to the store! better yet, they also hiked the price up to 30$.

    Good job Blizzard, you're really earning WoW's title as "biggest cash-cow in the industry".

    I was about to resub but now I remember why I stopped playing...

    No content for a year but when a new mount is out, they sell it for extra money!!

    Exactly, like Umchilly wrote it appears people would expect any given Cigarette manufacturer and whatnot to provide loyalty gifts - I don't see this any different, it's for entertainment purposes and it's certainly not personal.

    I miss the old days of WoW when we actually had to work for our mounts.

    Sub hike, though other games manage 15 dollars just fine...wonder how they do it. I guess ethics. Anyway, yes I'll pay a dollar more to avoid this crap.

    I get they want to make money, but don't you want to earn this mount instead? I bought the star pony day one, and have bought 3 other shop mounts, but don't you think its a little disheartening to see yet another mount accessible only to those willing to spend half a game's worth or two months subscription just for a mount? I think you forgot what it means to voice your opinion when you yourself seem to value other's so little.

    We still do, ever look at a store mount and not think it looks incredibly retarded on a level 20 picking their nose?

    while surrounded by 50 other people on it picking theirs?

    I dunno I got the bat as a gift, and I only ever seen to get impressed whispers on my pheonix, that one was free

    There are mounts in game that can be obtained by finishing content... So yeah we still do work for our mounts. All of them... no but most.

    TL;DR for all the comment above, and under mines:

    "OMG BLIZZ, U SUK! I QUIT WOW NOW!"
    "STOP WASTING WOD RESOURCES BLIZZ, EVERY TIME ONE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES BLINKS WE LOOSE A RAID TIER!"
    "BWIZZARD IS A GWEEDY CORPOWATE BUSINESS AND N E 1 WHO DISAGWEES IS A BIG DUM FANBOY. NO EXCEPTIONS!"

    I'm disappointed, but im not PMSing over this stuff. It's REALLY not that big a deal, these mounts have no impact on the game and do not take resource away from WoD or any other part of WoW. I could've sworn the Nightmare would be RAF and Reaver would be store bought, but oh well, just a missed opportunity imo lets move on now kids.

    According to blizzard basically everything they do will take away from a raid tier and use that as a lame ass excuse so as long as blizzard is using that excuse to not make anything we can use that same excuse in the opposite way when they do make something.

    If everyone has a sparkle pony then everyone has a sparkle pony. They can choose not to "use" it but they still have one. In the case of wow anyway.

    We need some of the store site developers to help the raid developers out. Evidently they know how to release something new and exciting.

    Did I miss something: Does RAF need anymore mounts?

    Another great looking mount, which in my opinion is wasted by placing it in the store. Charging $30 for it? Just a little depressing.

    What feels worse is that I'm actually paying Blizzard to get away with this crap when I disagree with it at such a fundamental level. I'm close to qutting, I'm sure I am! Come on Blizzard, one more mistep, that's all I need to be free!
