And now we know why there is no resources left to create 5 man dungeons - It's time spent on money grabbing scams like this. I already pay a subscription to the game, I should not need to pay more to get cosmetic items which have been developed and paid for with my subscription money.
To be honest, i don't like those helmets and this new mount.
So, no danger with my money. XD
How short-sighted can people get?
Micro-transactions are great, so long as they don't break the game. A lot of people pay for this stuff, and Blizzard will make a ton from it that goes back into creating more game content.
How can anyone be opposed? If you don't want to buy anything, fine, don't. But at least see the obvious benefit this will be to the game as a whole. What Blizzard invest in this they get back a thousand-fold.
This is not good...

In before revamped models on the Pet Store. That would be absolutly hilarious.
Any smart customer would not support this... Use your brains people, stop throwing your money at Blizzard before they start selling (old) tier-sets too...
Nobody really knows how far this is going to go. Just look at SwTor - you have to pay extra for additional hairstyles, races and quests on top of subscription fees. Is Wow going to end up like that? Are they going to try to boosts store sales by putting less cool stuff into the sub-only game?

Even though I don't play anymore (thankfully after seeing this) I still think this is shocking and hugely hypocritical of Blizzard. Over the course of MoP we have heard the excuses that they can't make 5 man dungeons because they take too long mostly due to the art and new player models are taking a very long time because the art team needs to find the time in between creating new content. Then all of a sudden they magically find a lot of time to create cosmetic items for the cash shop? Yea...
A lot of Pandaria fun items have 10-30 minute cooldowns.
So far everything they show in the pet store has a 3 minute cooldown
Gets Popcorn...This aught to be good.
Don't know why people are so upset/annoyed by this. Many saw it coming and it's not really detrimental to the game. It gives Blizzard extra money which continues their ability to develop the game. And for people who pull the "its just more profit for them", what the hell is wrong with that? If you were in their position you'd want as much profit as you could make too. Shouldn't put others down for doing the same.
Haha, april fools ?
It seems americans forgot who raised them ...
Dear Americans, we, Europeans are your fathers, we raised you and fed you. We are smarter and stronger .. you can't fool us.
