    I’ve always thought the whole “rarity makes it better” angle is just silly when talking about cosmetics like this. Especially for these old, easy to farm mounts.

    I wish I could have given you one of my 3 Invincible drops, but you’re almost certainly in the minority of people who actually care about those kinds of mounts if you’ve tried over a few dozen times and still not gotten it. There are so many people out there with that mount (and other similar ones like Ashes, etc) who don’t even use them. Do all those people make the mount more or less desirable for you? If you got Invincible tomorrow after over 1,000 tries and then everyone who has it but never used it before mounts up would that detract from your personal quest to get it?

    With newer expansion mounts I can understand that whole “prestige” angle because there are plenty of people who might want the mount but don’t have the means to attain it. But for ones that are 2+ expansions old where all it takes is a little bit of time and patience steamrolling irrelevant content that sentiment just falls flat. You’re putting value on rarity for something people either don’t want or already have (but don’t use).

    I am strictly opposed to buying mounts or increasing the % with money.

    If I wanted that I'd go play Lost Ark or BDO. Although I know a couple of people that would without a second thought drop 100-500$ on anything they want and/or don't own yet. For whatever reason - to flex, to feel good or whatever.

    I want Invincible because I like the way it looks. It's a horse that doesn't use the regular horse animations, and it has wings.

    Would I care if others had it? A little bit, but if I want to show off impossible to get mounts, I got CM ones (currently using the MoP CM ones), and I have a couple other low drop rate mounts too if I wanted to. I'd still use invincible though, because I think it looks nice

    Actually a good suggestion IMHO. Doesn't even bee too low...2% or so.

    Really? Let's hear what they are - because while I did buy a few store mounts, my go-to mounts are stuff like Invincible, the spider for 2 million gold, the 100 rep mount, timewalking wolf, Order Hall mounts.....

    The Fairie Dragon is possibly the only one I can think about.
    I took a break from launch of WoD until Shadowlands. I had no clue what people are opposed too. I'm not opposed so why would I assume everyone else is? They're just ingame mounts that people may be tired of running dungeons or raids for.

    Some people just have money available. I save like 30% of my monthly wage, pay all my bills and still have cash available. I really would't mind paying something for a mount for a place I'm just tired of going too. It's not even like I hate the raids, I'm just tired of seeing them every week for years.
