    I think I would prefer a napkin sketch by a hall drunk Blizzard employee would be interesting.

    Wandering ancient, for sure. I can already see my druid riding it.

    Well, I suppose there are some technical issues right now, but I read "we want to collaborate with everyone who owns Shadowlands" as "only people who have upgraded their account to Shadowlands can participate".

    It won't even let me login to confirm that currently, but even assuming it's true, voting =/= getting the mount. It's a means of filtering thousands of f2p/bot accounts voting for whatever the user desires as a mount.

    It's distinct but we don't have a single Ancient mount yet and riding a giant tree in a game inspired by LoTR just sounds long overdue. To each their own. I am sick of dragons too, though. I haven't taken advantage of any of the free mount 6 month promos because they've all looked dumb to me (mouse, pig, mechanical dragon.) A giant book I can see spellcasters looking good on. The tree, I can see any of my characters riding it.

    It's a free addition. It isn't a collector's edition mount, it isn't something that's "pay $10 extra to the expansion and you get it!". Like the 6 month sub mounts are free, because you're paying for the 6 months itself and the mount is added as a reward. It's the same deal here, and it's not some grand evil plan.
    I didn't say you have to pay a larger amount to get the mount and it's still not free if they need you to make a purchase or have made one to get it. I didn't say it was a grand evil plan either, I literally said it's intent is to boost sales.

    see you in shadowlands.

    or both.

    In all fairness, if anyone was playing retail (where you can get the mount and not classic), they will be buying the expansion anyway. I'm pretty sure the amount of people who are playing Classic-Legion only content right now are slim (and soon to be Classic - BFA).

    So don't really see an issue with it. Basically it's just saying "Play the expansion and get a free mount".

    So you are saying people who playing Classic-BFA (1-50) only should get the mount? I mean really what kind of playing experience is 1-50 only during an entire expansion going to do? You can only do so much and will get bored way quicker.

    Essentially anyone playing retail will eventually get the expansion at some point. It never said you had to have Shadowlands by this date. Just "Have Shadowlands and starting in Q1 2021 it will be added to collections".

    but its close enough to be a waste. And if they do decide to make it a flyer its going to end up looking more like the blood tick/nerubian flyer. Sure they might deck it out in argent gear but at the end of the day its still going to be less impressive than the ancient or some of the other ideas.

    However had it been a Nerubian spiderlord I probably would have voted for it in a heartbeat.

    Yes, because you definitely need to buy in Q3 only. Nope. Can't buy any other time /s

    Got to love how anytime someone does something nice it's because of some hidden motive that isn't there. Nowhere does it say it has to be bought by a certain time to redeem it.

    So you lose out on a vote. You still get the mount if you buy it earlier.

    I don't think any of the mounts will be flyers.

    And in my eyes, the ancient would just be your typical clunky/gimmick mount that you summon once and then never use again. What you posted seems like it has the potential to be a pretty cool, compact spider/beetle tank with which to charge into battle with. (and buildings without bumping into the entrance, lol)

    You know, with an up to date model, higher resolution and some armor.

    There are no arts/images of the mount, how the hell I am supposed to choose?

    Oh, I'd like the Ancient as well. But I can see Blizzard reusing the animations they have now and that's a big turn off for me
    This world don't give us nothing. It be our lot to suffer... and our duty to fight back.

    Hope somebody asks them about any concept art they may have for them (would be surprised if none exists)

    Can make a much more informed vote with them.

    You're completely misunderstanding. Yes, we (or at least I) know that everyone who has Shadowlands as of Q1 of next year will get the mount. I'm saying that having the poll only open to preorder customers one month before release (when the mount won't be released until some undetermined time next year), is a pretty thinly veiled attempt to pad out the preorder numbers before the end of the quarter.

    Yeah, it's just a vote. It's not going to convince ME to preorder just to click a button. However, I'm sure the number who will do so is greater than zero.

    I chose the Soaring Spelltome. As a mage main, my reasons consist of: I'm a magic user, because the name implies flying (even if it ends up just being a ground mount that hovers, and just the fact that a magical book mount sounds way more unique than the other options.

    I see you are already riding the imaginary mount whose name and description blizzard doesn’t know.

    They didn’t have the decency to even post caricatures of the supposed mounts. For all we know they could unlock a bunch of sea cucumbers in our mount list when it’s time (when is that again 5-6 months from now?).

    Meanwhile they will get fresh money right here right now while testing how much bullshit they can get away with. Well played blizzard.
    WoW forums in a nutshell:
    m8 i've been around since Feb 2005, I know it all.
    So I was using a gold dupe hack. I don't know why i was banned for this. It is so unfair.
    People need an incentive to play content. "Its fun!" is simply not enough.

    Soaring Spelltome sounds precisely like a flyer...
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.
