    Having a mythic mount would be some awesome achievement if not for one thing. Freaking guilds sell the runs to get them. Joe Schmo didn't prove jack squat to get his mount, he just paid some folks to run him through.

    In my opinion, mounts like that should give you an achievement and should be time locked. After a while, they should become buyable for a significant sum from a merchant somewhere.

    The best deserve something to stand out and show they completed the most diffucult challenge when it was relvant. I personally think mythic completion should get a unique mount AND it should be removed from the game once the next tier is released.

    IF he said that, they already went back on that with the 3 new moose mounts coming out that share the same model as the moose from Archimonde lol.

    Mythic raiders get everything. But who gives a shit.

    How about some baubles for the other 99.9%?

    I'd rather scrape my genitals with a grater and take a bath in salt water than pug Heroic Archimonde. So from where I'm seated, more moose mounts sound like a great idea.

    ...
    You know what I think? There should be unique rewards that are available only to players who haven't killed a boss in the current mythic tier. If you kill a boss in the current mythic tier, on any character on any of your accounts, the rewards would be removed.

    Of course if you haven't made yourself ineligible by participating in current tier mythic raiding, you could go back and do the mythic clear as soon as the tier is over, and keep all your goodies.

    This should also apply to achievement points.

    If he did say it honestly it means nothing. What system in the game have they told us about and then an expansion or two down the line it is completely different anyway. Nothing they say is really concrete. At best you can only take it as something that will last an expansion at best. Maybe two. On the thrid or after it really doesn't matter one bit anymore.

    Here we go again, Rym the lazy salt player who feels hes entitled to beat the game because he beat LFR :>

    Guess what Rym, If you can't beat the mythic content (unlike like the thousands of guilds who managed to by now) then you don't deserve a mythic reward

    Stop trying to take away special rewards from people who put in effort. We play a different game than you do, we do research and try to improve and thus we should be rewarded differently.

    Simply giving us the option of playing a difficulty who is challenging is not enough. Just because you are salty about not being able to purchase our mythic rewards in Blizzards store, doesen't mean that you can't ever improve and get it yourself, or maybe clear it long after multiple times with a chance of getting it.

    I hate this envious rhetoric i see from people like you, all i see is salt and entitlement, well guess what - you SUCK, stop spending all day on the forums and try to improve at the game instead of complainting about a "minority" who has earned this vanity reward.

    I don't see anything wrong with it.

    I think every aspect of a Mmo should have some sort of high end tier reward in it for the player to encourage them to keep on playing and striving for it, whether it'd be from raiding, PvPing, collecting things such as mounts or pets and so on. Although erase Lfr off from the reward list as they might be then more inclined to use what of the raiding "experience" they got from doing those in joining Normal and above difficulties if they want the same things like their fellow players.

    I mean, that is the case? I'm not sure what is unclear about that. I'm just saying, you did the exact thing the other guy did that you yelled at, only in the opposite direction. I don't really care about this argument, just wanted to point out that all of this speculation on the number of mounts was easily remedied with a little math and brain power.

    As a Mythic raider, I've not once had a problem with others having rewards. Better rewards being hidden by the highest tier of pvp or pve content was always a thing afaik.

    The people bitching the most about LFR, other raid difficulties, epic gear etc etc are also VERY often part of the crowd going "The game has no challenge anymore which is why I won't raid or pvp at a high level, I'm too good for it!!"...

    If you take the time to do something that not everyone else does, you should be rewarded with something that nobody else can get. Not just a silly achievement.

    I'm fine with them being amazing looking. It's the fact the skins are unique that's more annoying. Even a shitty recolor available via in-game means would be a nice bone to toss to people still subbed.

    Even though I hate blizzard's cash shop, you've got to admit they gave us a shitty skyscreamer which looks similar to the shop one! ^^

    Exactly how expensive are the mythic-only mounts to develop?

    Also, as you're a fan of "Skinner-box" design, don't you think it's important to give a special treat to the people who press the more difficult buttons?

    I don't know what the devs are upto but yes limiting mounts! well not a very good option

    Yeah because it is very limiting to either A): Get good and do the content. B) Buy it with gold C) Wait an expansion or two and solo it.
    If you are going to complain about a Mythic-only mount then I can't even begin to imagine your tears when I tell you that the Infernal mounts are most likely Gladiator-only, which means you have to be in the top 0.5% of the specified season or lose the chance to get the mount forever. That is limiting, not a mount that stays there forever with 3 options in how you can tackle it.

    Is it justified but I think that there should be a LFR-only mount too. Would give people a reason to run LFR. It's fun.

    The reason to run LFR is for people to see content. You shouldn't get rewarded for something you can afk through (done that multiple times because it is a snore fest). The rewards for something as trivial as LFR are already good enough. There is the normal difficulty which isn't hard and you can get a mount by doing it through the meta.

    LFR is not really easy. I would say it's a lot harder thant Mythic Dungeons and sometimes even harder than Normal since some mobs have lower stats on normal.

    Exclusivity for some few players is not really healthy, if a game lacks in content and in usefull extrinsic rewards in total. Actually, organized raiding already gives the best extrinsic rewards to a small minority only, so i really wonder whom should be adressed by shiny mounts, if most of the mythic players are progress-gamers, which see their main benefit in sheer progression?

    At the end, the vanity items adress a complete different playerbase. Those that collect cosmetic items, and which are mount collectors. My impression is, that blizzard tries to act as if special mount designs would be needed to bring prestige into the endgame, while i believe that mythic raids are already prestigious enough due to the fact only a small minority play or even master them.

    The prestige comes from participating, and not from vanity items.

    I really wonder how the effort for special assets for a small minority as like mythic raiders is being justified, if mounts would adress the broad audience of players way more likely. As it's rarely about the best gear for those players. At the end, blizzard should think about rewarding every player for playing their game, and allow as many ways as possible to acquire vanity items and progression gear.

    The best solution is to give players of the other raid difficulties (including LFR) a recolor of the mount the mythic raiders get. That also would remove the idea people would feel forced to hire organized raiders for gold to “play” the game. As like renting a raid spot in one of those meritocracy-based raiding guilds.

    What do you think? Should there be a large effort to create expensive rewards for small minorites? Or would you be happy if players who play on a lower difficulty would get the same rewards as recolored or less detailed version?
    if prestige came from participating they'd be in LFR wouldn't they? so no, no my dear. prestige is for the best, the prestigious, not everyone is that, or cannot/has the time to achieve that

    edit: or has the gold to purchase that, kek

    it might not be easy for you, but its most definitely easy. thats why it was created, more accessible for the masses

    Gladiator exclusive mounts are absolutely justified.

    PvE ones... I guess, no great harm in it. Would prefer the pinnacle rewards be as exclusive as they can be, including gubbins in and on top of "normal" mounts or cosmetics (Shadowmourne trinkets like Sylvanas music box etc. as an example, although with the game in its current state those thigns are hardly "rare" types of gear. But if they made the Mythic only mount 10% faster or summon instantly I'd be okay with that. Likewise with the Gladiator ones). Such as in TBC I think the only 310% mounts were A'lar and Gladiators Netherwing Drakes. Powercreep w/e if they made the mythic only/gladiator ground mounts 120% speed I'd be okay with that.
