    New Blizzard Store Mount: Swift Windsteed


    Same price as usual, 20€/$25

    Quite an ugly mount as a store bought mount. Then again, not as incredibly flashy as all the others!

    Looks great IMO, to each his own.

    I'll put up a token resistance for a while...but I'll cave eventually.

    I like it. It kinda looks like a reindeer. I mean, I wouldn't buy it, but I like it.

    That said, take my opinion with a grain of salt because I have been informed on numerous occasions by numerous people that I think "all the wrong things are cute."

    Agreed. It would be fine if it didn't look like a retarded Rudolph the red nosed reindeer.

    Great looking mount, just bought it.

    Didn't we see like four different versions of this ages ago? Far as I can see they are only selling the white version.

    And yeah the model looks fine, but the head O.o

    Amazing sig, done by mighty Lokann

    Seems to be a trend lately, we've had a few mounts where several colors were datamined but only one or two ended up on live servers.

    Looks like they based it on the stag model.

    I'm not sure tbh. I'll probably conceed and buy it, but it doesn't exactly make me go yaaaaaay...

    For starters I just don't like it.
    Secondly I disagree with Blizzard's practise of selling these items (with the exception of Chairty Pets) considering we're paying for their development via our subscription. Also I'm a grumpy sod who just thinks the idea of unloading £17 for the sake of a mount is silly, especially when there are better ones already in the game.

    Ewe. If it were free I would try to get it in game for the number, but don't see myself buying. Here I thought it couldn't get worse than sparkle pony. Sig by Lilliputia! <3

    you should check the animation. it looks like it was designed by a first grade liberal arts student.

    I mean, look at the front legs of that thing. the legs clip through the spike on the chest of that beast in such a glaring way... it's like they didn't even think about it. there were so many options for it:

    1) leave the spike off.
    2) make notches for the legs to go in.
    3) put the spike higher.
    4) a smaller spike.

    I mean, how can you miss such a glaring mistake?
    Currently only reading the Funny Pictures Megathread because the rest of the forums is filled with piss, whiners and pissed whiners.

    thats one hell of an ugly mount.

    what is it even susposed to be some mythical asian beast?

  17. #17
    I'm gonna pass.

    I still have to say (this goes back to the last mount they released) that the Chromatic Mount aka Heart of the Aspects was just..a bad decision.

    That mount should have been the Mount for the Meta achiev for Dragon Soul or the Mount to drop from Heroic DWing.

    I understand it's supposed to look like some Chinese mythological creature... but DAMN that thing's ugly.

    It's a Kirin -also spelled Qilin. Basically an Asian unicorn with fish scales. Decent representation of one too. *takes away everyone else's nerd cards for not knowing this*

    I like the mount, sad it costs RL money though and that they ditched the other color skins.
