Now that we have had the opportunity to try out the expansion and see all the "glorious" changes to the game, what do you think of account-wide pets and mounts? Do you think it was a good idea? Or do you think it sucked the life out of individual achievement and character progress?
Personally I don't know where I stand on this. On the one hand, it is cool to be able to use all my mounts on any character I have. On the other hand it feels like the achievement of gaining the mount / pet on a particular character is sucked out and it feels empty to get to a new level on a character because part of the thrill was the excitement to buy all the mounts you could ride at those level milestones.
What do you think? Is there a loss of thrill and excitement because of account wide mounts / pets?
