    I see people complaining about store mount prices?

    Hi everyone, does anyone find it funny to see the complains each time a store mounts is out? My question is who's asking you to buy them? It its completely optional and personally I don't buy them because I don't like them. It's an option not requirement!

    its just the people that really want it and can't afford it or refuse to pay for stuff in game because theres a subscription. i personally don't understand it. blizzard runs a business, they are there to make money, stop complaining when they try to do just that. there are tons of mounts in game for free. stop whining about the few that cost money.

    They used to make the cool mounts a reward in game for doing something cool; a goal you could see and start, sometimes taking months of time to get there.

    Now you can buy them and every one and their brother has one.

    I'd be willing to bet that if the store were bigger during BC, that the netherwing drakes would have been sold there.

    EDIT:

    I mean if they want ideas for keeping people playing, then make more long quests chains that take you around the world to do little random things, or collect mats, and have a mount at the end. Just something more to do. Although in my defense, I haven't played since early Cata, but I see people saying that there isn't enough end game stuff. Maybe this is one of the reasons.

    I'm not complaining about the price. I'm complaining about the utterly disgusting practice.

    I'm not complaining. I think that the $5 is a long overdue price change, considering how poorly the industry is running.

    whether or not a mount is cool is pretty subjective. i personally think the kor'kron annihilator from heroic garrosh is an awesome mount so in my opinion they never stopped putting cool mounts in the game as a reward that takes some effort to get. now they just put some cool ones in that you can buy too.

    There is? I've never noticed it. I'm probably too busy playing the game to care.

    If I click it, am I forced to spend money? Please advise.

    Wait, how am I the reason for it when I've never noticed or used it?

    Is this button the only red thing on your screen? What happens when you go into Molten Core or fight Garrosh? Does the fire annoy you?

    Why do you keep calling me fanboy? The button is only on the login screen? Huh, no wonder I don't notice or care. Click my character and enter world!

    I don't care there is another store mount. I usually buy them if I like the model. What I find difficult to swallow is the price increase.

    The problem people have is that, these items are essentially exclusive to those that can't afford them.

    Heroic Achive mounts and such are one thing. That's a lack of drive or skill, but can still be attained at a later time, when you out level and overpower it. While buying something that people feel they already paid for is entirely another issue.

    Selling mounts and pets takes time away from the art team, the editing team, the coding team, the animation team, and such that SHOULD be going to fixing or making stuff that ISN'T exclusive material. Blizzard has stated over and over again, certain things don't get done because of others things. So a question is, what isn't getting fixed or added because this mount had to be made?

    I personally don't care, I'm not dropping 30$ for a fucking mount, when I don't use 95% of the 200 I already have and don't like. I don't care if it's exclusive, and I certainly don't care if someone else wants it. More power to them.

    Though, I can see why people might have a problem with the double dipping.

    i've never really complained much, though i don't like the store. if WoW didn't cost $15 a month to play i'd have no issue with them charging $30 for a mount, but when you're paying that much to play the game, and then they are charging more for in game items i think its a bit silly. i would probably accept it more if they were more like $5 a mount, can buy a full game for the price of a mount in wow, its getting a bit much. i would rather they made the mounts attainable in game though, while we got no new content, just make some random achievements that award these mounts instead of charging.
