    Do you mind finding some of those reports? Because as recent as Legion they were counting and I don't really want to buy a store mount to test it out.

    There are also plenty of people reporting store mounts DO count as well. Some claim the counter doesnt update until a non-store mount is learned, which is strange, but not unheard of.

    LOL

    I'm genuinely surprised at the short memories that people have. They gave away the Steam Incinerator drake (that robot dragon mount) away in August to six month subs, and before that it was Squeakers, and before that it was the feathered drake, and before that it was the pirate ship I believe. Hell, you don't even have to pay for the transmog directly -- just use gold to buy bnet balance and use that to buy 6 months of subscription. I, personally, moved to a 6-month sub when I realized how long I had been playing this game for, and how much money I could have saved by doing a 6 month sub instead of a monthly sub. Stuff like this is just the cherry on the cake.

    Yeah, this is the logical thing to do, but then you get people going "Blizzard is fooling you into getting a 6 month sub so you waste money." I mean yeah there are probably some that fall for it but I'd estimate it is low. The people who are doing 6 month subs are typically those who know they'll be playing most of the months and know it'll be cheaper. I use to do the month-to-month too just because it was easier to manage than one bulk payment (yeah I could do it, just hate doing those things). Then they started doing then so figured I might as well start doing it and getting the free stuff since I play anyway.

    Then you get the people "Blizzard is ripping you off more if you get a token since it cost someone $40 not $30 and you are feeding the evil Blizzard corporation!!!"

    Store mounts 100% DO count for the achievement. The mouse triggered my 350 mount achievement.

    I fail to see the connection.

    A mount added to your personal collection, however, it does not count for the achievement.
    This is not true. My store mounts have always added to my number and counted towards the achievement.

    I got mine today for an ongoing sub, but since I couldn't wait I bought it the second it was as a seperate deal in the store! So I guess I now have two of them ;D

    Before BfA I remember many people complained we have no loyality rewards for subing to WoW. And now people are shiting on this, who would have guessed.

    I understand people were pissed at store mounts during WoD, I was as well. First your only option was to get them was to pay Blizzard $$$. Second, they looked really cool. Third, in-game mounts were 20th recolor of boar/wolf. And final nail to the coffin was fact that store mounts really fit Draenor factions, like it was scrapped from the game and put into store... and probably it was the case.

    Since then we had shit ton of cool mounts in Legion, even more in BfA (SL starting really well as well). New store mounts are not that unique, often I see comments how ugly they are. You can buy them through gold and they are cheaper than many gold sink mounts (anything that cost more than Nazmir frogs). Last ~1.5 year (so far so good) ALL (beside collectors edition etc) store mounts are introduced via loyality program, so if you're subbed for 6 months, you get them for free.

    Looks like they start expanding whole system, I suspect it may be something like this: new mount -> 3 months -> transmog/toy -> 3 months -> new mount etc.

    Btw, it's really funny to see people like Asmongold that shit on store stuff earnable through gold and spiting @ people who use them, but praising Dino mount (oh, I'm sorry LoNgBoI) that cost like ~500$. This level of hypocrisy is disgusting for me.

    What store mounts actually released during WoD? Nothing really springs to mind.

    I know a lot of store mounts released in between the release of patch 5.4 and 6.0, I think 3 or 4 mounts in total, but I really can't recall any store mounts releasing during WoD.

    Frankly the store mounts released during 5.4 have been the most egregious in my opinion. It's clear that they simply took mounts from WoD and rather than have them be available as ingame rewards, they were sold on the store instead. Meanwhile we got like 10 recoloured wolves, boars, hippos, clefthoofs and talbuks and barely any actual cool mounts available from ingame activities in WoD.

    They've also somewhat done it with Shadowlands, as both the Vulpine Familiar and the Sylverian Dreamer are creatures from Shadowlands zones being sold as store mounts, but at least it doesn't come at the cost of cool mounts available through ingame activities in Shadowlands.


    *edit* I checked up on it, and seemingly only the Mystic Runesaber released in WoD, sometime during patch 6.2 if I recall. That one was also clearly swiped directly from Suramar, or at the very least heavily inspired.

    I think there was 1 or 2 mounts released during WoD, but I was thinking about late 5.4 when I talked about "Draenor" mounts. Remember that WoD was relevant only like 8 months, after that all focus was on Legion and Blizz even took one mount datamined for shop and give it as reward for Draenor Pathfinder.

    I think you're somewhat misremembering. They took a datamined store mount, the Grove Warden, and made it the reward for defeating Archimonde on heroic difficulty in HFC.

    The Soaring Skyterror from the Draenor Pathfinder achievement was never a store mount.

    Its not added to the store in a directly can buy it like the mounts & pets sort of thing. Its added to the store in a way that you can buy a 6 month sub and get it and it just happens to show up in the store now as a thing you can buy. For any of those people on the fence about buying it and have the extra cash to spare and plan on playing WoW for the next 6 months, this is equal to paying $12.99 per month for the next 6 months for the game but all up front. The spirit darter thing is just a "free gift with purchase" thing.

    I mean, it is not that bad I guess. Many people wish to set themselves apart from others in a MMO. PvP players and Mythic raiders have their improved sets as well as Mounts so show off their achievements (a bit inflated by boosting, sadly). Bad players basically had nothing to set themselves apart from other players. Blizzard now offers them this opportunity with money and they do not have to achieve something harder in the game.

    This is also not problematic since players know where the appearances are from. When I see a gladiator in her elite set on the gladiator mount, I am in awe and respect them for their achievement. When I see someone with a store transmog, I laugh and can go on with my daily tasks ingame.

    As I said before, as long as there is demand, Blizz would be outright stupid if they didn't try to monetize it.
    If the playerbase really wanted to stop store stuff, they'd stop buying them.

    this set looks very promising
    i might buy some future sets /w more dark theme
    Shadowlands is real world
    The Maw is China
    The Jailer is China government
    Sylvanas is Blizz

    I do find it quite pretty, but I don't think I'll buy it.
