    Yay! The Yak mount (and all gold bases mounts) are now ACCOUNT-WIDE!

    So, did you see the blue post? Ιf not, click here!

    I'm super excited!

    What do you think?!

    Oops, title typo - Consider that bases as based (if a mod would change it, I would appreciate it)

    WHAT

    Wait. What
    FUCK YES

    We have been discussing this issue the last couple of days and we made the call to make the following mounts account-wide:

    Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
    Grand Expedition Yak
    Mechano-Hog
    Mekgineer's Chopper
    Sandstone Drake
    Grand Ice Mammoth
    Ice Mammoth
    Jeweled Onyx Panther (all color variants)
    Cloud Serpents (all color variants)

    At this point, the only mounts that are not account-wide are either class specific or rewarded from PVP. We feel like both these types of mounts should still be character specific.

    Thanks for your feedback on this issue!
    PvP ones are still not account wide, however, but we're making progress!

    Edit: Nvm, Poseidus is account wide too. Missed the announcement.

    Good change, didn't really make sense for it to stay the way it was. People would simply avoid buying the items all together if they were unsure about keeping once class as a main.

    Yeah it is, its "Subdued Seahorse" and they made the announcement that it was going to be account-wide about 2 weeks ago, it was on MMO-Champion home page.

    Anyways, this is very very good news!

    This is good news indeed! Now If only we could get some confirmation whether account mounts are actually 'account-wide' or server wide, would be great! (Or does anyone know a blue post regarding this?)

    Also, not that I'm nitpicking but, whats the reasoning behind the 'PvP mounts will be class specific'?

    Actually, it is battle.net account wide! All characters on all realms on the specific battle.net account will have the mounts!

    No, as the mechanohog still costs 10k+ in mats alone

    In other news...

    This is indeed good news. Glad they made the rational decision.

    Yay for my panda having a vendor while leveling!

    not at all.. since the mats to make said mount, are still expensive. if anything.. given you only need to learn it once.. i woudnt be surprised if the prices actually go UP, as a result.

    Could somebody explain potential reasons for not allowing PVP mounts to be shared? I'm not a mount collector nor do I have any special PVP mounts, but I'm curious for the sake of understanding design.

    at least its only 14k gold because of chinamen

    Awesome, was hoping this would happen so I could buy the Yak mount in MoP. I wouldn't have otherwise.

    You're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...
