Armory Stats - Battle.Net Shop Mounts
Today we are taking a look at the ownership percentages of Battle.Net Shop Mounts. The sample used was 2.2 million players active since November 1, 2015. Keep in mind that most of the mounts and pets are still 50% off until January 4th.

The popularity of the mounts roughly falls in line with when they were released, except for the poor Swift Windsteed.

Feel free to sample some of the exotic brews and libations carted in from around the world, and dance in celebration as a new year dawns.

Warning: If you're on a PvP realm, you're cautioned to steer clear of Booty Bay (or perhaps get yourself to Booty Bay for the best party around) as the guards there appear to have had too much fun already and aren't likely to be enforcing the town rules until morning.

Heroes of the Storm - Beyond the Worlds
We have seen some nice WoW machinima lately, but there is also some interesting Heroes machinima that was released this year. Rather than using the existing Heroes models, they created their own.

Pet Battle Bonus Event – December 30 - January 4

Before you head out into the wild with your lower-level wild things, make sure you pick up the quest “The Very Best”. Because you’re the best – around – you’ll want to queue up for PvP Pet Battles with a team of three level-25 pets. After only five wins during the event, you’ll be rewarded with an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone, which means another level 25 is on its way to your collection.

Yeah, we prefer that format too. I'd expect to see that for the other zones a bit further down the line. (craig_amai)

Legion - Demonsaber Mount
Legion adds a Demonsaber mount, which is currently listed as a Demon Hunter mount. Currently Demon Hunters only gain access to the Felsaber mount on the Alpha, but several NPCs were riding Demonsabers during the Demon Hunter intro experience.

.A lot of new things have been tried this year wrt holidays, really appreciate the feedback, we'll keep iterating (Muffinus)

Blizz didn't learn from Love Rocket RNG, and this is significantly worse.
I wouldn't say it's a lack of learning, more "hey this is a new concept (illusions), how desired is it?" (Muffinus)

Sometimes. Most topics quickly degrade into namecalling. (holinka)

lore question if you'll indulge me: Where does Elune rank in terms of power? Old God level? Titan level? Even higher?
Those questions are more fun to speculate about than answer. Where do you think she falls? (DaveKosak)

Ghostcrawler Tweets
Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

MMOs often have to emphasize quantity over quality, and that usually means a pretty simple basic combat model. (OccupyGStreet)
By which I mean positioning, timing and so on have to be pretty simple. (OccupyGStreet)
They dress that up with depth, usually in the form of numbers, e.g. resistances, speed, crit, dots, and so on. (OccupyGStreet)

Legion Alpha - Demon Hunters and Nefarian
It looks like Nefarian was updated to have a Demon Hunter class call before the Alpha went down.
