We’ll be introducing these mounts to the Blizzard Shop and in-game shop as a standalone bundle in August. Players who purchase these mounts this way and also attach a 15th Anniversary Collector’s Edition to their World of Warcraft account by March 31, 2020 will receive a $25 credit to their Blizzard Balance.

    They are at least new models and I like the aesthetic. Wowhead already showed in the anniversary they're going to let us mount Deathwing, so there are cool new mounts for everyone.

    Caught me off guard at first too.

    They should be Crystal imo. Since that traditionally celebrates a 15 year anniversary if I recall?
    I think they should've made the alabaster more obvious, or at least gave the armor a gold trim. I do like the idea, but I admit at first glance it can look like an unfinished model.

    Ragnaros looks pretty sick but sadly it is the only interesting this in this 'pack'. Not worth.

    Aw so sweet, after 10 years of recolors now they give us mounts without colors. Nothing to complain about, I guess.

    As for the CE. Far too expensive. But of course I guess ActiBlizz had to get their money grabbing ways in somehow on WoW Classic.
    WTF? Them adding these mounts to the store is a good thing for players. This thing is gonna sell out super fast, because it's Blizz so of course there will be limited numbers, then people will resell this thing for upwards of thousands of dollars for a couple of ivory recolored mounts because of their rarity, and putting it on the store this essentially kills that dead. I get it, you hate modern wow. But you are complaining just to complain.

    So you're angry that the CE is too expensive, but also angry that they're making it so people that just want the mounts can get them without buying the whole thing. Okay.

    100$ minus 25$ for the mount and 13$ for the free month and minus nothing for the mousepad and pin and art prints because they are pretty much worthless.

    So you are pretty much buying a Ragnaros statue for about 60$. Thats ok I guess. Considering you dont have to buy classic at all, this is a nice item for collectors.

    The mounts look kinda lame but at least they are not usable in classic. Could you imagine the outrage of all 3 classic youtubers? #nochanges blabla nobody cares

    If only it came with the pets I missed because I didn't get the TBC CE for some reason!

    Rofl it comes with mounts that you have to use in BFA.

    Blizzard is fucking hilarious. Somebody on their marketing team was smart enough to say "Ehhh, I don't know how we are going to sell this shit statue for 99 bucks..." and their solution was to pack the box with nonsense instead.

    Yep.

    Could have just thrown in all the stuff they used to. Artbook, Music CD, maybe a small plush to replace the trading cards, Mousemat and so on.

    But the same idiots who bitch about the state of BFA will buy it so oh well.

    Cash shop mounts you can't use, awesome.

    Nah I'm only considering it.

    If it was like one of the older CEs or a single option to get the statue then maybe.

    Or couldn't they give you the original vanilla collectors edition pet? Since you are literally buying the vanilla collectors edition again and it still won't be account wide? That doesn't violate the "no changes" rule and actually adds in something that was around IN VANILLA.

    I mean if it makes you happy go for it man, I just hate to see blizzard being rewarded for making bad decisions.

    Yep. Could have given the Zergling, Mini Diablo and the other one.

    Why they chose to give 2 garbage reskinned mounts for a game nobody will care about come August is beyond me.

    Ugh, no thanks. I bought the CE of Vanilla years ago when WoW first came out. I'm good. Why should I buy it again? =P

    I'm not especially interested in Classic, but those mounts are sweet.
