    Well, damn. Here's a napkin to wipe the egg off your face.
    Don't blame the casuals for making Warcraft worse. It's the unskilled masses who refuse to improve themselves and Blizzard who has decided to bribe these folks with an endless shower of purples that should draw the ire of both casual and hardcore alike. It was never about "seeing the content" for these people it's always been about the gear and their sense of entitlement.

    That really isn't a compelling argument I'm afraid

    Uhhhh Literally everybody in the world has the chance to compete for a gold medal. If you train hard enough it is still obtainable. These mounts however, are not. You're comparing something that they still hand out to new people every 2 years to something that is never rewarded to anyone ever again. I'm not sure how you even just tried to relate these two examples.

    Only if I get a crack at getting a frostwyrm that doesn't have the silly faceplate/rings of the ICC one. I'm still miffed that I missed my chance at a gladiator's frostwyrm.

    Black should be placed in the BMAH like Plagued already is.

    Gold cap on an extraordinarily rare instance of constantly checking BMAH, or extremely dumb luck, works fine for such an ancient and outdated mount.

    And people said the same thing back during Ulduar and ICC when players were asking for it about those raid's achievement mounts. Guess what, they are still available.

    Blizzard needs to be consistent about this. It doesn't make sense as to why the achievement mounts were removed when they kept the rest available.

    That's probably one of the coolest mounts out there. I really wish I had it.

    The only consistent thing about blizzard is lack of consistency or governing philosophy about WoW. WoW has no core values and anything and everything can change on a whim.

    I am surprised people are so obsessed with Black and Plague proto. In Wrath, my favorite mount by far was Time-Lost Proto Drake. It was not the prettiest mount but it was VERY hard to get. I saw like 4 people with it (including me) at any given time in Dal (tops) on my server. It was an exhilarating feeling when npcscan went off and you saw it was time lost. In general I value individual effort mounts way more because nobody could carry me whereas with meta achievements people are carried/buy them all the time. Those of you with the special snowflake attitude, heroic mounts off of end expansion bosses have been selling for lots of gold and are not exclusive to the best of raiders.

    First of all WOW! I never thought I'd see this thread on the home first page again, thanks to nickanthony for reviving it.

    And if you read any of the previous discussion that I posted I said that I don't want it to be a gold cap thing. Just make is obtainable as a meta mount like the other ones or if Blizzard should make it so that you have to do challenge mode esque scenarios to obtain them. For example they could make a scenario where you need to beat all the bosses of Naxx and then you get to receive the mounts but it'd be hard to do like the Warlock fire quest. This is just one thing they can do. Making it cost 999,999 is the worst idea ever. It only has a 0.01% chance to get on the BMAH anyways and then they make it so that you need to spend all your gold on it. Extremely unfair.

    I don't mind earning my mount. I got the Violet drake and I worked on that for an ENTIRE year. I don't care if its stupidly hard to get the Plagued and Black Proto's but I DON'T want it to be entirely based on RNG... That's incredibly stupid and that's what the BMAH is.

    hahahahahaa, I sure hope they'll never bring it back just so that you whiny brat will never ever be able to lay your filthy hands on it

    you were too bad during Naxx to get it / couldn't be bothered? Too bad. You don't deserve it.

    Bit of over-exaggeration? Yes, if you start fresh, 1 year of time will pass before acquiring the Violet Proto Drake (up to 3 months less depending on which holiday you started on). However, the amount of time actually invested in the Violet Proto Drake is probably in the range of ~20 hours. A grind? Yes, but there are many, many other mount grinds that take longer.

    What? You do realize its a group raiding effort, AND that stupid shit like a DC at the wrong time could screw you over for the achievement, yes? One single mess up and you lost your shot at it for the week, and the meta was only available for, what, 24 weeks?

    Um? I was two achievements away from getting Plagued and I was 5 away from getting Black (If I remember correctly). I will literally spend the 999,999 gold to get it but I'd rather EARN my mount than have to get it through RNG so I can actually be more proud of it. I'm not a brat either I'm simply bringing up a discussion and if your only going to BM and be a prick than I'd ask that you kindly leave the discussion to the civilised and reasonable folk on this forum.

    Obviously you feel strongly about it so I don't know if its your only achievement in life or something like that but it was 6 years ago that this mount was available. I've done my fair share of time in this game, killed bosses on heroic, got other meta mounts but sadly these two were missed for me. Simply because I could not get my guild to get the last few achievements. So it does suck but guess what? Blizzard was inconsistent with the reward system and that deserves to be brought up.

    I'm not a brat I'm simply bringing up a reasonable argument. I'll pay the gold. Hell I'd pay anyone $1000 for their account so I can merge it with mine to get the mount. But I'd rather do something challenging that takes a me a year or hours worth of my time so I can earn my mount. I'm not asking for a free handout. So if that makes me a brat that wants everything handed to me then I guess I'm a brat. I've played WoW for 10 years now, and NOT once have I ever asked Blizzard to give free handouts.

    so?

    you didn't get it and now it's gone

    it was removed so that it would be a reward for those who completed it when it was relevant, like the Amani Bear, like the challenge mode items and others

    you can complain and feel entitled all you want, but you won't get it (or so I hope)

    in a few years you'll say 'hey I only needed to do 2 challenge modes on gold to get my cm set, too bad, but now I feel like I deserve it anyway'

    noooooooope


    there are new mounts you can get, stop living in the past

    That is true but I also did the Netherwing grind during BC and I've done lots of other mount grinds as well. I just thought it'd be appropriate to mention the Violet Drake as we are talking about the Proto drakes.

    Don't need to I have my CM gear from Mists. I'm not some casual who plays this game once I week. I've dedicated 100's of days into this game. And the prestige is already gone, people buy the proto's with real money or through the BMAH. Hardly anyone uses them anymore, its not an outrageous request in the slightest way possible. I never understood why people complain about prestige in an online game. I could give zero fucks if they let 100's go in there and smoke mists challenge modes to get the gear.

    I wear it because I like it. Not for the prestige of having it.

    And yet...

    - Red Proto Drake
    - Rusted Protodrake
    - Ironbound Protodrake
    - Bloodbathed Frostbrood Vanquisher
    - Icebound Frostbrood Vanquisher
    - Volcanic Stone Drake
    - Drake of the East Wind
    - Corrupted Firehawk
    - Twilight Harbinger
    - Crimson Cloud Serpent
    - Heavenly Crimson Cloud Serpent
    - Armored Skyscreamer
    - Galakras

    are all still obtainable easily by 100s. The fact that 2 of the mounts from arguably the easiest raid ever (Naxx 10/25) were removed kinda debunks the whole "you don't deserve it because you were too bad" argument. Because obviously if that was the case, we would've seen the rest removed as well.

    They removed them because they removed the Attempt mechanics and didn't reimplement the mounts. If I was optimistic, I'd say with enough voices they might put them back in as low % rare mounts as I'd like to believe it was an unfortunate side effect.

    Proto drakes are ugly. I use my immortal title all the time, times I've used my black proto in the last few years can be counted on one hand.
