    "New"? Stuff like this existed since MoP. They offered D3 for free for a 1-year subscription. There's been many 'subscription rewards' like that in the past. Just last year, they had the Sylverian Dreamer mount.
    I did a Necromancer thing. Check it out! All feedback welcome!
    Update 08/17: I changed how the Bone spec's golem mechanic works, as well as some other minor changes.
    I also did a Bard thing! Questions, comments and ideas, all welcome!
    Update 09/02: Apparently the mods decided to merge my class concept thread with an existing one.

    Oh boy, never heard that before. You must be a creative genius to come up with something like that yourself.

    You can buy gametime via battle.net balance but you can't pay for a subscription with it. This promotion (as was the last one with the dragon) is only available with a sub, not game time. Sneaky breeki blizzard ;-). The ship was available via 6 month chunk of gametime, not this.

    The blurb on the Battle.net app says that if you have an active 6 month subscription, then they'll send you the mount by Jan 28.

    Blizzard: "We do not let China influence our decisions."

    Also Blizzard: "2020 is the Year of the Rat in China, so lets make a distinctively Chinese-Culture oriented mount to use as subscription bait for every culture in the world!"

    EDIT: since the daft are using "Lunar Festival!" somehow as a defense, let me further explain. LF does not count, because it's just a Holiday event for a short time and not used as an exclusive 6-month Subscription Bait - unless you count all content in the entire game as "Subscription Bait", but that's up to you...). So, howabout we instead make that rat a Lunar Festival reward? Silly Idea, I know... funny enough, I suggested the idea many many years ago doing the animals as rewards for the LF, but when I said it - it was for pets, not mounts.

    That's a 6 month sub / game time... same thing, no?

    Nice to see them continue loyalty rewards, even if I wont be partaking. I only sub month by month atm, that will continue until Shadowlands.

    This isn't quite the same as pandering to a culture and letting them influence business decisions. This is smart marketing and releasing a product to tie in with the season. No different than the Coca Cola Christmas Truck (and Santa in a red outfit), and other companies releasing products and such to tie in with a millennium vibe back in 2000.

    Sheesh, you *really* are stretching with this, and your quite obvious Blizz hate.

    Um, actually looks cooler than the pirate ship or some shit generic dragon, but I have Ratstallion. Not sure what character would look good riding a giant cute circus mouse-looking mount. Maybe they'll do a vendor-less Brutosaur one day, so I'll continue waiting for that and just keep paying one month at a time.

    I remember for year of the rooster they gave all the Chinese players the magic rooster. Imagine the rate of the people on the rest of the world who spent hundreds on that mount.

    Idk if you know but a lot more places then just China celebrate the Chinese New year. I know it's odd.... We have had a holiday based on it since I think tbc? Donyou forget the lunar festival is literally the Chinese New year event?

    Really? I mean, Vulpera are already getting so much flack from the haters. I made mine a Warlock with the Felguard and his mount is the Sky Golem, a huge mechanized suit. Yeah, furry what, bitch? This demon will put an axe in your face and I'll run you over in this giant mechanized suit. Certainly don't need to be mounting up a cute mouse to wreck that illusion. lol

    Lunar New Year is celebrated all over the world and this is the third year in a row they've done this exact same promotion.

    This looks to be a credit card only deal for now, you can't use funds in your battle net balance.

    I like the way you think. I'd pay six months worth of game time for a giant rabbit.
