    Unhappy Not cool Blizzard

    I'm one of the people who are most likely not going to spendt bucks on the blizzard store. I wont stand up and shout about it, i just feel i am allready paying enough to blizzard as it is.

    However. When it comes to mounts these days blizzard has taken a turn that i simply believe is god awful. All(and i do really mean all) the new mounts that they have worked that little bit extra on all comes on the store instead of being hard earned in game.

    You might not all think that the fey(fairy?)dragon was the coolest looking mount ever, but its a very unique mount no matter how you look at it(personally i find it very cool).

    I simply do not agree with this strategy and wanted to be heard.

    How do you guys feel? Is it cool that the unique new mounts all come from the shop?

    Honestly? There isn't a single mount on the shop that I would take over mounts available in game. Unique models? Sure. Better looking than what's already available? Not from my PoV.

    Its a mount, it does not make you better, it does not make you go faster then on other mounts. I have the Fey Dragon, I bought the new one. But I do not care if they are obtainable in the game or has to be bought. I will join the whining army if they start selling gear or performance stuff in the shop.

    For a while unique mounts came from the card game, and then were added to the game later as reskins. Maybe the same will happen with the shop? In the end it's essentially the same thing, and it's been happening for a lot longer than most people give it credit for. If anything, these cool mounts are cheaper and more accessible than before for those who really want them, so there isn't only bad.

    Ok so thats personal opinion mate. That is why i wrote unique. I personally find them awesome.

    The special part about them is they have unique models and have ekstra features like colour change and this new one does thigns in the air plus it has rocket boosters.

    Well, they produce unique mounts for both the store and in game. I think I'm fine about it. That goblin robot is one of the coolest mount ever and it is obtainable by playing.

    Remember that everything in this game is pixels. Gear or mounts what you fight for is still half cosmetic.

    A unique mount is a win too-.

    it's a mount. It gets you from A to B in the fastest time possible, therefore you spend the minimal amount of time on one. Why do you care?
    1) Load the amount of weight I would deadlift onto the bench
    2) Unrack
    3) Crank out 15 reps
    4) Be ashamed of constantly skipping leg day

    You probably have 100+ Mounts anyway, for what you Need a new one?

    Ingame store is just another source of revenue for Blizzard, and it doesn't sell things that would affect your gameplay, just cosmetic stuff.
    As far as I am concerned, that's not affecting me in the slightest, and thus I am alright with it.

    Why is it that people object on mount selling and pet selling so badly.
    a mount doesn't affect the game AT ALL. I will simply be buying the mount just to support blizzard. I kind of like blizzard and their games. If you think blizzard is just ripping people of then don't buy it... it's a matter of opinion and perspective.

    Those store purchases subsidise a subscription fee which contrary to inflation has not increased since release.
    If you feel you are already spending enough, then be man enough to thank those people who kept your subscription fee at the level it is by buying that mount, pet or helm.

    Its like you dont get the point. Remember the days before transmog where people would show off their new gear inside the big city? Remember the first time you got a glory of the X mount?

    Mounts are not just vehicles in this game. They are trophies. If you dont realise that then you and me cant understand eachother.

    I have a couple of mounts off the mount store thanks to people buying me Christmas presents. I don't use them over my rarer mounts I've farmed up in game. Maybe that's just me. Honestly though, I'd rather they give us these mounts that they don't think fit in the game through the store than not at all.

    Side Note: I can easily find a place for all the mounts they've given us, it would just mean more content they'd have to create for a couple.

    Or just realise that blizzard took way more then they needed the last 10 years to make them ablt to still run wow at the same price. Inlfation? come on dude. They made billions. Everyone knows that if they started upping the subscription fee they would loose a lot of customers. Anyway back on topic please.

    Surely the source of teh mount defines whether its a trophy?

    Store mounts are hardly trophies, neither is a blue wyvern.

    All the new mounts are from the store? From when, exactly, would you consider a mount 'new'? I want a date.

    It doesn't matter if it makes you better or not, it's content you need to pay extra for to obtain. I already pay a subscription for the content.

    I wouldnt be as bothered if they only released these mounts say every six months, and atleast 50% of the profits went to a good charity.
