    I'm not clever enough to notice these things, but if it's anything other than a coincidence I think it's fantastic.

    I call it the carrot on a stick patch. Got to keep them subs active with people chasing all the mounts/pets.

    Anyone else notice that, after mount #300 in your collection, more of them to collect just don't seem worth it?

    Not every one needs to get every mount if it’s not worth your time don’t get it, I know I won’t be.

    A fair chunk of the new mounts come from doing content rather that be raiding or the new reps, others have been added to old reps and are just gold sinks.

    Nope.

    But I'm an actual mount collector. 436 unique ones, going 500 and beyond.
    Some people don't collect mounts at all, never reaching 100.

    As opposed to back in the day when a rare mount dropping could break up guilds.

    Yikes, you people.
    How very odd...
    It would seem that one simply can't make Classic sound good, without first attempting to make Retail and its fans sound bad.

    Cosmetic rewards are permanent. Gear rewards come and go.

    It's not only just that gear rewards "come and go" (and they do, certainly.. and very quickly these days)... but they are just largely unrewarding. period.

    That is the biggest problem in WoW right now IMO and why I'm looking forward to classic.

Yes, we have those now but they are nowhere near as difficult and time consuming as Engineering Helictoper, Ashes (pure RNG, yes) or Netherwing.
    funny because there is threads talking about how these mounts are TOO hard to get...

    how long will it continue? about 15 years so far, so i doubt it will end soon.

    gear is replaced and becomes useless.
    mounts, otys, pets, never replaced, never useless.

    I'll feel this way after 350. Unless 450 is something so incredible it convinces me to give two shits about farming mounts again.
    You think you don't, but you do

    Yep, though I got to 400 before giving up (got them before BfA). Now its probably possible to get 500. Can't be bothered with that.

    Will the gear rewards in Classic remain as rewarding when you've worn them for 2 years, never replacing them with anything new?

    Gear not being the reason for playing the game is a good thing. Having other reward systems and making gear a tool rather than having people in a frenzy over it, ninjaing left and right with guilds breaking up over a single piece of epix, has been a boon to the game overall.

    I still feel plenty rewarded when a piece I really want for optimization drops and I get it, but long-term rewards that last between expansions are still my drug of choice.

    Don't they have 2 of those wheel mounts, 1 from completing everything on Mechagon and another from a drop or such?
    How very odd...

    You can only replace the gear so many times before you get kind of apathetic to it all. These days i just farm gold, transmog, and mounts.

    As for Classic? I can't play my favorite class or race so no thanks.

    I'm so tired of these mounts costing hundreds of thousands of gold. It's so damn annoying that if you want decent looking crap you have to devote your life to playing the AH Mini game.

    The amount of people that play the AH is limited, they are after the people that want it enough to buy it with token money.
    In other words they are truly becoming a mobile game company fleecing the players for IRL cash for the best upgrades.
