    Once you hit like 300-350 mounts, you should start feeling apathetic about newer mounts.

    When I got Lord of the Reins title, it was like "Eh, the only mount i've been using this whole time is the Ghastly Charger. What's the point?"

    If a mount drops for me, cool. I'm not hunting them anymore. Nor am I going to buy them. Vendor mounts are in the game indefinitely.

    You just dunno how to make gold & make excuses about not having time.
    Bro 2-3 hours a day is still a decent amount. I might be able to dedicate 10 hours a week most and thats including raiding.

    So going by your estimate, lets say 10k a day for 3 hours of playing.

    That's still 30 hours just for a fucking reskin on a reputation vendor.

    I don't get it either. I guess at the end of the day you have to just say, alright, I'll never use this mount so whatever. I'm one of those people that got turned off by mount farming in Island Expeditions, though I won't say I'm stopping collecting completely like others have stated

    so you spend 3 hours to get 1/15th of gold that anyone can get with staying extra 30-60 minutes in work .

    worthy investment of time indeed -_-

    with this ratio you would have to spend 30-45 hours to get as much gold as person buying 1 token in EU -_-

    such a waste of time -_-

    they reason why they do it is because of people's irrrational anger at game shop

    those are in reality game shop mounts that are put into game while they know that people who will buy they will do it by buying tokens not by farming gold.

    in EU each of them basicly costs 10 euro because you can get 2 for 1 token

    the reason why they buffed price was because pre buff you ould buy 3 of them for 1 token making them cost a little but under 7,5 euro - too cheap so they had to buff price to adjust it to shop values.

    but sure lets all pretend those are not "shop mounts"

    You see very few people using the original mount as it is; the model was dated even on release and the origami wings looked stupid as hell.

    Now.. for 50k no less, they're using them as the brand new faction mount for the Alliance, 7 years on. Like... I really don't have words for how much of a piss-take this is feeling. Horde get recoloured Pterodax, but at least it was a newly designed model this expansion.

    I'm sorry, this probably seems like an incredibly minor thing for a lot of people, but it's just feeling like they're trolling the Alliance at this point.
    So don't buy it.

    there's alot of things you don't know, so this isn't surprising.

    but yeah, play alliance get shafted that's been the way its been since BC.
    poorly modeled updated model needs a replacement the second it goes live due to poorly animated wings, 7 years later recolor them.


    hopefully blizzard joins carbine soon.

    I'll be passing on these, they're too old and unremarkable to justify spending that much on. Some cool new Hawk mounts would have been far more appealing

    The reason to that, its the mess blizz made back in WoD with Garrisons, and again in a minor scale in Legion where everybody got a ton of gold without even need to log in game at some point (mobile apps).
    So now theres people that still are subbed and drawing in millions of gold and blizz want then to dump, bcause they are using it to buy itens from the store, blizzcon tickets, games, etc. without have to pay real money.
    And for newer players and players that didn't take advantage of the table missions, 50k for reskins (even the horde ones, theres already 3 in game) is not something to spend so easily

    Do people not get sick of this line? We have gotten a ton of unique mounts in bfa flying and non flying alike.

    You could have bought shado-pan tigers for much less, or farm the new Zul Gurub or Darkshore cats, plenty of "free" tigers for the horde.

    They literally even gave Horde non-undead horses this expansion, so you have access to most typical "alliance only" models as mounts.

    I made MUCH more money in Legion. Back in WoD I maxed out around 15k gold/day on gold missions, by the end of legion I was topping 55k gold/day.

    You sound like Orcs, Minotaurs, Trolls, Goblins and ELVES are so fucking innovative and never seen before fantasy races. Stupid excuse is stupid.

    50k gold is figuratively nothing. I'm pretty sure this is a non issue worth crying about.

    Excuse me? Are you really saying that the recolors of pterrordaxes and 5-year-old gryphons are game shop mounts?

    Idk the exactly amount of gold/per day but in wod i had only 5 chars at max level, in legion 8 chars but only my main did argus questline(that unlock those 2,5k quest in the table) and i get more than 5 Million, i bought the 2M spider mont, and now after 2 raids buying flasks and stuff, i got around 700k in all my chars.

    *And as someone post above, in the last PTR each mount cost 90k, which just give me more motives to not buying those.
