twenty five bucks, would cover lunch for me and a colleague if we don't mind where go.... its not like its a lot of money. If you think it is then you probably should be paying 15 to play either.

on a side note, after getting the disc mount (red cloud) I have zero need for any other mount. Finally a mount that doesn't make obnoxious sound, jitter/dive all over the place, it just does what a mount is supposed to do - move me fast

Mages are basically "warlocks for girls" - Kerrath
why are raiders getting hand me downs while people using the store are getting unique models?

it truly amazes me how people are content with their sub money funding stuff they CANT EVEN EARN IN GAME.
that must be some strong kool-aid.
If you look at the trailer on youtube it has a lock on it and says:
"This video is unlisted, only those with a link can see it"
Blizzard dun goofed?
But it's on the WoW site...
It is available in the in game shop for US also, contrary to what the article says.It looks like this mount isn't on the US or EU Shop websites or in the US in-game Shop yet.
In around 2-3 years we'll only see Mounts on the Blizzard store if Blizzard keeps this up. All the cool mounts get put on there. This is just Blizzard screaming "WE WANT MORE MONEY, 7.5 MIL SUBS ISNT ENOUGH!!". As a mount collector I don't purchase any mounts from the Blizzard store, I don't want to because I'm already supporting Blizzard with sub fee, occasionally transfers etc, even buying all of their expansions. I don't wanna waste more money on the mounts and pets. Ir's ok if I spend my money to play the game, but to buy shit in this game seems like Blizzard is moving towards "Pay 2 Win" with the new in-game shop. Because if Blizzard is this desperate with currently 7.5m~ subs may be more or slightly less not sure. I can only imagine how they'll be when WoW goes to 5mil, we'll see a RMAH auction house similar to BMAH which will have heroic items for bids where people can bid on with real money.
Like Activision once said, they want to find ways to sell as much stuff as they can. They always look for more ways to make money, and that's what they´re doing. And THAT'S what's taring Blizzard apart, they need to start thinking about the players, not only about them selves. Just look at Diablo, they don't wanna have much man power working on that game, cause they're not getting much from it compared to WoW or future games. Diablo is 2 years old soon and it´s still crap. And Beta is missing a lot of things, Beta still needs to fix 100 issues and even then it wont still be fixed. The expansion shouldn't have taken this long, with the amount of stuff in it, it shouldn't have taken more then a couple of months with a decent team, and even could've had a lot more. But it just shows that Activision is greedy.
Ye ye, tell me I'm whining. But I still think it's the truth. I want both WoW and Diablo to be as entertaining and fun as possible, but it's not fun when you need to pull out your wallet on everything you want, and not getting what you're being promised cause the company doesn't want to spend extra cash. It just shows how much they care about us.
Well the rockets might be necessary due to all the metal on it? idk only thing i can think of to explain them.
No no Blizzard, spending your resources working on a store mount with a unique model and animations and even its very own trailer with voice over is clearly more important then using them on things that actually are important.
I came for the screenshots of the mount, and stayed for the comments. I was not disappointed.
Fuck everyone who pays for this shit.
''we don't want to spend our resources on more content after 5.4, as it will only delay the upcoming WoD expansion''
Adds an expensive Blizzard Store mount in the process a month later
Well, this is just another amazing mount restricted to the store. Bloodwing, Fey Dragon, and now this. All unique skins. I wish Blizzard would make them available in game somehow even if they were extremely rare. Oh well.
Its now available in the US in game store.
Too many people are actually buying this stuff, apparently. It's encouraging them to make more and more real-money mounts. It's so pathetic. It's one of the things which make me feel embarrassed to be around.
I've even chatted with a few people who have these store-only mounts and, it's like they totally don't get it.
Sometimes it feels so emberassing to be part of this community :S
