What do you guys think?
I think this is a strange thing, and perhaps it's just me who thinks this, but the more rare a mount is, even if there are other mounts which aesthetically look better, the more "awesome" it seems.
I have the red fire bird thingy from Firelands, I got it when it was (relatively) current. Now it's a 1% drop, it feels so much more awesome.
Same, indeed, with mounts I don't have; I want them more if they are not obtainable/hard to get/rare.
The opposite effect happens to, and while I really don't want this thread to be a rant about the store, I kinda wish mounts with awesome, unique models, like the ones on the store (thinkin' that epic Enchanted Fey Dragon), were rewards for doing awesome things. The recent 2 headed monstrosity thing looks brilliant, but brings an "eh..." whenever I see it.
I personally think in relation to the store mounts, it would be offset if they were only on sale for a small while, and then were unavailable after that. Perhaps that would make them more awesome in years to come, as opposed to always being on sale? (not that Blizzard would ever do this.)
Anyway, what'd you all think?
