    Why don't they make mounts BoE?

    Hey
    I mean rly.. why? would be so much more awsome if you could sell any drop mount... was killing dino people rare thingies the other day since my alt needed rep tokens, 4 mounts dropped in like 7 kills.. and neither me nor my grp member could use them.. so why shoulden't we be able too sell them?
    Would make killing mount bosses so much more fun imo, or if you are very unlucky you can just buy it on the AH

    as I recall, racial mounts used to be BOE in early Vanilla...

    My assumption is that they're trying to prevent people who aren't interested in them go after them and deprive those who are by winning them and then trying to hawk them for a very high price - though I agree it'd be interesting for some mounts (it'd almost have to be case-by-case) but for ones that are out in the world and contested, I'm not certain that's a great idea - but I'm not a designer, I've just given my hypothetical concerning why mount drops are not tradeable.

    i agree, mounts that drop from other sources outside of raids, should be BoE and come with a higher drop rate. i think PvP mounts rewards, reputation mounts and Raid boss mounts/Meta Raid achieve mounts, should stay exclusive to those that take the time to get them. but the other mounts from rares in the world, or dungeons, or world bosses, should be BoE.

    If mounts were BoE, everyone in the raid would always roll on them in hopes of selling them. Barely anyone doing the content would actually keep the mounts that drop.

    Basically, they're BoP so that the people that can get them are the people using them.

    This. Could you imagine guilds selling things like the H Garrosh mount on the AH?

    You already see people poaching the Subdued Seahorse who already have it just to list it on the AH over and over again. Imagine that with every mount.

    This would remove everything that is epic about getting a rare mount. Why farm for Ultramarine Qiraji Battletank if you can just buy it on the AH? When i finally got mine after 150 tries i got incredibly excited but if you couldve just bought it for 100k gold everyone would just run around with it and i would have nothing to show for my effort.

    someone else still had too farm all that, so it showing up on the AH is still a tribute too someone's effort

    you seem to be confusing rare with personal taste. not that many would use that mount, so "everybody" is a bit of an exaggeration. its more likely that people would *own* the mount.. but it doesnt mean they would necessarily use it.

    some people do use a mount simply because its rare, even though they believe it to be ugly as hell, but many people use a mount because they visually like it and dont care much for its rarity.

    There are some BoE mounts.

    This too, it wouldn't necessarily make the mounts better. Also, getting the rare mount is half the fun (most of the ones I get, I hardly use even).

    I wish they made the mount system more like the new pet system. let us cage and sell mounts. That cage and sell pets addition in mop was a good one.

    It's too convenient for the player, and that's a no no in Blizzards book.

    For a mount as rare as that 100k it a pretty unlikely price. 500k+ surely.

    Anyone remember back in vanilla when mounts were BoE and you used to get a guildy with pvp sergeant rank to buy it for you because they got a bigger discount?

    No, I would not support this at all.

    You already have hunger for mounts at times, it'll be worse if you add a dash of people who have the mount but is greedy for gold, so they'll need to sell.

    So really, no. Rather have it as it is + the ones who have the mount, can't press need.

    No thanks.

    Like titles most mounts are just a way of displaying your achievement and/or hard work, by making them BoE you remove the prestige instantly

    Where will you stop? Ok let's imagine mounts were BoE, what's next? All raid epics/tokens BoE? BoE Legendaries? Seriosly why not? Where will you stop?

    I think you're severely underestimating how fast prices on easy-to-farm mounts (i.e. everything pre-MoP for the most part) would plummet if this feature were to ever be introduced. If you feel that badly about letting a possible mount drop chance go without anyone being able to use the mount then ask in /1 if anyone wants to join and set the loot to masterlooter so they get a mount while you get everything else.

    No thanks. I run raids weekly for mounts and sometimes pug others for MSV/ToT. People who don't care about the mount or already have it rolling to make gold? Not cool.
