Galakras looks fine. He's a remodel with new armor plating, helm, and saddle. Besides, at least it's not just a retextured Wind Serpent. What surprises me, however, is that it's not a dropped mount from Galakras in the raid - since that would continue the tradition set in the two previous tiers with dropped mounts that look like the creature they come from. Though i suppose the guaranteed drop from Heroic Garrosh is more in keeping with previous mount drops off final tier bosses.
One thing though: am I reading the post correctly about the Hearthstone Beta Streamer Invitational? Are they really holding a contest among some folks who got Closed Beta keys where we are supposed to watch them play and then they get prizes? What the what? Sometimes I just don't get this hobby...
I didn't realise that a bunch of 14 year old girls on their periods played wow..
I agree with the first guy who posted. Take this shitty excuse of a meta mount and shove it. Probably took 5 minutes to edit the current Red Proto-Drake into this.
The mount armor is fine.
It just needs a better skin.
It should be some persuasion of black, like the dragon Zaela was taming. Or maybe deep red, or something. The yellow stripes just look weird.
People who hate LFR should just stop doing it. I get it that they want the gear to cheese normal mode, but there are some people (like me) who would never get to see the encounters at all if it wasn't for LFR. It's annoying enough to deal with people's superior attitudes during the raid, but then I come here and see people asking for bosses to be removed for no reason other than they want to feel special or saying it's in a weird place when actually it works fine for its intended audience.
Also, cut this "5 minute" BS please. Right now, for someone to do all of ToT in LFR, all four wings, including queue time, and assuming they get into a good group that doesn't manage to somehow still wipe on Ji-kun or Durumu, will take at least 4-6 hours a week. Hmm, 4-6 hours a week of raiding... sounds an awful lot like casual raid guilds that clear Normal mode content all the time. There are just people who can't schedule those 4-6 hours in a way that works for organized, pre-made raiding, so for them, LFR lets them put in the time and effort to get the experience and loot that everyone else gets. Alternatively, shall we consider the possibility that given your distaste for accessible content maybe a MMO is not the game for you? (see how easy that is?)
Ever play a game, you're having fun and then decide to put cheat codes in? How long does it take for you to get bored and quit? Pretty fast. That's what LFR is doing to the game. People are putting in their cheat code and beating the game in 45 minutes. You take the challenge out of a game, they get bored and quit. Ghostcrawler was right, you have no business playing an mmo, go play skyrim if you don't have time to socialize.
You live in a magic, make-em-up world where everyone prior to LFR progressed into normal mode raids. Except for the fact that 1) less than 5% of the player base ever cleared the end-tier raids like sunwell and naxx, even when they were out for months on end and 2) Ghostcrawler has actually SAID that the people that do LFR would never have actually been in the raiding pool to begin with.
So maybe you should look at some actual facts before you try and say you're coming from a position of "reality"
And your position is completely irrelevant anyway. It's pointless for Blizzard to include an "easy mode" that doesn't include a raiding guild if they're also not going to provide challenging content that doesn't as well. Are you saying "well, WoW is a game that's only for people that can put in time, or that like doing pablum. If you're somewhere inbetween, the game obviously isn't for you. But on either side of that bracket, well, we've got a whole bunch of stuff!" And even if you ARE pathetically self-centered enough to agree with that incorrect sentiment, you'd again be ignoring reality, as blizzard USED to offer content that was challenging but didn't require a raiding guild: BC heroic dungeons and Cataclysm Heroic dungeons. All they'd need to do is make it so you can go straight from max level normal dungeons into LFR, while heroic dungeons have to be formed manually and offer gear that's BETTER than LFR gear. Done and freakin' done.
But according to people, that would be "bad for the game?"

Pretty crazy to read that tweet knowing skyrim online (teso) is going to be a competitor. Idk I wouldn't care if WoW was more solo friendly or not. I've never been the type of guy who has scores of internet friends. If anything they are just general acquaintances. Hell, if my real friends knew how much I played this game I'd never hear the end of it. Dealing with people is pretty much a chore in this game to me. It's fun, for sure...but 90% of the time I'm just doing solo play anyway. I get it for those people who are with their friends and all or guilds that have been together for ages. That's cool. I don't see why LFR infringes on anything really. Reading all of the complaints, it basically just comes down to purples..which isn't about team-play, it's about reward. Team-play just becomes the veil over the reward at that point.playing is it's heart and soul. And please tell me which letter in MMORPG stands for organized
The second one, as I said. If you ignore all those other players or treat them as NPCs then why not play Skyrim or something?
