    I don't like it simply because of the lack of detail on it. The Argent Dragonhawk looks awesome. The red and blue ones look like giant flying leaves. I think it's because they're using the same textures as the ones in the starter BC areas...

    It is also uglier than the Argent Tournament reward.

    I get some people might think the mount is cool, and they are neat, but they're not 120-150 mounts worth of neat.

    I may be wrong but back when 4.2 was datamined i read something about the Beryl Fire Hawk being related to the TCG. Sadly it was a long time ago, so i dont have any links...

    They also intend on adding a mount for deathwing kill, who knows maybe you get the spectral mounts from there... or darkmoon faire? Either way, there's alot of places for these mounts to be introduced next patch coming to conclusions this early is pretty pointless.

    Was Albino Drake worth the struggle to get 50 mounts back in BC?
    Was Dragonhawk worth the struggle to get 100 mounts in Wrath? (horde can get another Dragonhawk from argent tournament)

    Theres no ghost mounts ingame atm (except for the TB ground mounts). The mounts look cool imo.

    I'm sorry, did you just talk about the achievement system back in TBC? It wasen't there. Only for the single patch before the launch of WOTLK, when TBC was pretty much over anyway... And imo, just because Blizzard failed previously, doesn't mean they have to fail this time:P

    probably darkmoon related, or at least I'm hoping.... I have about 120~ and still need many of the ToC mounts, and a few vender ones as well.... Would be very disapoint if this was the reward. If we see a achievement data minded that will be a good indication of if it is or isn't.

    *gag* Not a fan of Spectral mounts, I'm DEFINITELY hoping these are not the rewards. Icky.

    I've been holding out - and will continue holding out - hope that we'll get an Infinite mount.
    Eh? Eh? Based off Aeonus (updated model, of course)...would be sick.

    Except for the 2 Spectral Tigers, and the Celestial Steed pretty much looks the same.

    Bleh, wyverns. Sucks to be Horde if this is the reward.

    maybe a mechanical mount for 150 mounts? something like a moth you can fly.

    or maybe even a mechanical beast mount? a mechanical worm would be AWESOME.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    I am sure whatever the 150 mount reward is, people will QQ.

    If it is unspectacular, we will see "Another B-average mount for hoarding mounts that look far cooler?"
    If it is fantastically awesome, we will see "I raid and put all the work into hardmodes to get a rare drop/achievement mount and now casuals get a better one for just collecting and grinding"

    Either way, Blizzard will be blamed.

    I don't think a casual player can get 150 mounts... even if he doesn't raid heroic modes and stuff, collecting 150 mounts is a LOT of work

    Mah, since spectral steed and wolf were from TB dailies, first thought was that these ones are from DMF dailies.

    Hmmmmm....lemme check my armory...110 collected, 68 not... yeah..I probably could get 30 more by mad grinding, but 150 without raiding (or investing in the trading card game) seems really really hard.

    This.

    My main has collected 111 mounts so far, some of them being rare-ish drops whilst others are faction mounts, etc; whereas I know it's possible to get quite a few more through grinding/dailies, I don't see how I'll ever reach 150 considering I'm not a raider and have no raid mounts at all (excluding the Rusted Proto Drake from the Ulduar 10-man meta achievement).

    Of course I'm not saying it's impossible to get 150, it sure isn't, but as mentioned above, the regular player isn't going to get anywhere close to that number. Sure, the achievement is supposed to be difficult to "achieve" ( :P ) but getting to 125-130 mounts is just as much hard work, in my opinion anyway.

    The 150 mount achieve will be invisible, unseeable. I called it!

    More seriously, as has been said many times, it'll probably be DMF. Isn't the faire gonna be located on a dark/spooky/ghostly island?
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    I hope not, just saw it on WoW head with two different names, I think it's related to the darkmoon fair just like how the spectral mounts at the beginning were with TB and horde got a wolf, ally got a horse. The thing that caught my eye on the datamine'd mounts was one called a "Space Charger" sounds baddass, even though the icon is of the current Celestial Steed.
