    Make everything except gear drops account wide, imo.

    I earned it, not the pixelated representation in the game. The only people who disagree are special snowflakes and people who confuse "long and repetitive" for "interesting and compelling."

    Not sure where you got that idea. If anything it does the opposite. It encourages gameplay on multiple characters.

    I really like the account-bound mounts. The first day 5.0.4 came out I got on all my alts and picked out which mount I wanted specifically for that char.

    I really like it. I've been playing my Horde main nonstop since April of this year but I started to get burned out on dailies and rolled an alliance alt for fun.

    When I checked the pet menu, there was this glorious moment where it dawned on me that I could access all the pets my Horde toons had collected...and a chorus of angels sang. I got a silly thrill from summoning the Undercity Rat in Stormwind.

    Then when I realized that I could collect pets on my ally alt that my main could also access, well...my addiction was complete, and went about leveling/capturing some pets with my alt for several hours. Such a nice break from "the daily grind" and with the bonus of still benefiting my main in some way.

    No. Not even remotely. There was was no Thrill of gaining a mount on another character because any thrill was immediately over shadowed by the thought that I will not be able to use this mount on anything but this character. It made me not want to run old world dungeons on my alts for fear of getting a mount that I would never see again.

    And Jaylock if you are going to keep making threads like these could you please be consistent with the questions.

    It is super awesome!

    It does take away a little bit of the excitement, but I think the benefits far outweigh that.

    brilliant idea.. about time

    I have played my paladin for years as a result of a massive collection of mounts and pets that I would lose if I went to a new character. I couldn't bring myself to change. When I heard this change was coming I was so happy.

    First thing I did when MoP dropped? rerolled.

    Reps make no sense to be account wide. They are character specific because that character put the work in to get the rep up. However, i do like that it's easier to gain rep on alts after 1 character has achieved at least Revered. It's as if your first character is vouching for your alts to say they should get a break on rep grinds, after all, to the NPC's in the game, your characters are different people.

    On Topic - Mounts and non-combat pets kinda make sense to have account-wide. Perhaps not the Rep mounts, cause you run into the same issue with Rep not being leveled on all your characters, but when you spend gold on something, why would you be made to spend the same gold on the same thing more than once?

    I understand the excitment of getting new mounts for a particular character at certain level milestones, but you still kinda get the same satisfaction as those mounts are locked until you reach that same milestone on the alts, only you're not made to buy them all again and again as you level different characters.

    all the cool mounts were gained through achievements/factions anyway and i often couldnt be bothered doing them a 2nd time. so im glad they made it account wide

    Yes! while some mounts are fun to obtain on multiple toons, others like the Time-lost proto and Aeonaxx were a particular pain in the ass that I do not want to do all over on different toons. So in summary, yes, I think account-wide pets and mounts are one of the best ideas so far.

    Or players with rare mounts and don't want to see others have access to them which, by not having account-wide mounts, wouldn't have them due to unplayed characters; I.E. special snowflake syndrome. I have yet to see someone voice themselves as such, however (as it relates to mounts/pets anyway).

    Only thing wrong is that the system doesn't help well with faction specific mounts. Like the armored war bear from Dalaran, I have it on my Alliance yet I can't use it on my horde. On a DK/Lock/Pally alliance I am up to 151 mounts, yet on the horde side I missing about 24-25 mounts. Really it should be all or nothing, and my greatest pet peeve about the system being half-ass is the Swift Alliance Horse from HTOC-10man doesn't convert to the horde version. So honestly I feel the system wasn't fully account wide, and more faction wide.

    Account-wide with exclusions, those being arena mounts, faction and class mounts.
