    My very first character was a dwarf hunter; I got my mount at 43 and my epic mount after having sold the Ace of Elementals* (I've been quite lucky)

    On my second character, which is still my main, I got my normal mount around 42 and a Frostwolf Howler as my epic mount. I tried to reach rank 11 but stopped at 9, back then there was a lot of competition on my server and I wasn't part of a premade.

    * For those who don't know, the Ace of Elementals was needed to create a very powerful trinket called Darkmoon Card: Maelstrom. I didn't know how rare that item was until I put it in the AH and saw people fighting over it; I looked it up on Thottbot, realized I was selling it for a rather low price, took it off the AH and put it again with a much higher price. I sold it nonetheless!

    yep both on my orc warrior and my undead warlock, though as a warlock it wasn´t all that expensive, at least the nonepic mount, the pic ones were either expensive or a pain in the ass

    i remember also being one of the first few players having a flight mount, it was awesome, because pretty much everyone else was at least 1 lvl away from hitting 70

    It's kind of amazing how they've allowed all the special things in wow to not feel special anymore .. sure eveyrone wants and the temptation is to please them by making it easier to get, but doing so really devalues the thing,and to be honest you keep losing the things that make you special beacuse they're trivial.


    YES!!
    I am not sure about "make you special" I'd say give you a sense that you accomplished something.
    But now people think because they paid their 49.99 that they should be able to play an hour or maybe two per week and see all the same content and have all the same gear as people who put effort into it.

    I vividly remember it, as a Tauren Druid, I hated kodos, my friend had a kodo so I knew I hated them, so I grinded Exalted with Orgrimmar for the Timber Wolf. I was level 49 by that time, but I had travel form to mitigate some of the speed issues. (this was in approximately march 2007).

    That just isn't true. There is a vast difference between wanting to be able to have some fun in the game and experience some meaningful content and wanting to have the same experience as people who put effort into it.

    In the case of mounts, you don't want to have to grind for hours to get it on every alt. The awesome experience and sense of satisfaction was awesome on your first toon, sure, but once you have done that once, you want it to be a lot easier for other alts. And it's not like this game is short on other stuff to do....

    I actually have a picture of me riding my first 60% mount somewhere, I remember it very well. BGS and Mounts didn't come out for a very long time after release, I remember when I first heard about the mounts I was so happy, and completely elated when I got mine. Brown bridal horse, then they added epic ground mounts, then flying mounts in bc with ones that went slower than ground mounts on ground but 100% in air, and epic flyers that did 100% on ground and faster in air... good times lol.

    I was a Night Elf Hunter, on Archimonde - just got my 60% mount at around 45, did my first ever "raid" on Crossroads with a few IRL friends. Was amazing fun. Always loved Nightsabers.
