    90% of mounts have been recolors since the beginning. The stone drakes of Cata; the drakes and proto drakes of Wrath; the talbuks, wind riders, netherwings, and nether rays of TBC; and the racial mounts of vanilla. The only difference is these were given at sets from the beginning. Whereas more recently they've been making recolors of older mounts which didn't used to have recolors, which is where people's kneejerk reaction comes from. 6 recolors of the same mount for getting exalted = fine. Adding a recolor of an older mount for a content completely unrelated to the older mount's = lazy recolor to some people.

    Also most ingame mounts just get overshadowed by a dude who bought a giant floating kitten form the shop hovering next to you. Stands out like a sore thumb.
    Ironically they don't use the recolors enough for gear^^
    Um, have you looked in the appearances tab? Every gear set going back to ToT had 4 recolors, with the mythic one having some extra ornamentation. Before that you had 3 going back to DS, and 2 going back to Wrath.
    The most difficult thing to do is accept that there is nothing wrong with things you don't like and accept that people can like things you don't.

    Not the otter!

    BFA had some of the best ground mounts.
    8.2 mounts were awesome
    Also, Priestess Moonsaber =)

    In SL, Fallen Charger is gorgeous and was fun to get. Shame it doesnt fly.
    Other than that, i love Maldraxxi Fly mounts. super convinient. Somewhat cool.
    Other than that, SL is very painful for mount collectors and i mostly dont care. There is 10 different requirements for some mounts to drop so i list interest in collecting.

    A few do pique my interest. All of which I've used at some point.

    - Winged Guardian
    - Obsidian Worldbreaker
    - that Horde trike whose name I forget
    - Elysian Aquila (fits with my DH's angelic look)

    She of Anger mount is one that I still stop to look at, if I see one lucky enough to ride it. I'm well over 400 kills myself, but ah well. I do really like the new cosmic gladiator mount, which is a bit of a controversy... Why? Because it's red. Thirdly, I appreciate the Dalaran Sewer Rat, just because of the fond memories of obtaining it myself :-).

    Obsidian Worldbreaker
    Priestess' Moonsaber

    And if Legion mounts count:
    Highlord's Golden Charger
    Netherlord's Accursed Wrathsteed
    Archmage's Prismatic Disc
    Ban Lu
    Meanwhile, back on Azeroth, the overwhelming majority of the orcs languished in internment camps. One Orc had a dream. A dream to reunite the disparate souls trapped under the lock and key of the Alliance. So he raided the internment camps, freeing those orcs that he could, and reached out to a downtrodden tribe of trolls to aid him in rebuilding a Horde where orcs could live free of the humans who defeated them so long ago. That orc's name was... Rend.

    No. All my must have mounts are from WotLK and Cata era.

    Feldrake is the only mount I generally use and have been using for about 10 years now.

    When I get a new mount I mount it, say this is shit, and hop on the feldrake again.

    The first mount that had me was the headless horseman’s reigns. I wanted it before I even played the game.

    The last time I was hyped for a mount were the Nighthold Infernals. It all feels kinda samey now.

    Yeah, the infernals were great. I also really liked the KSM & Glad mounts from Shadowlands when first shown, even if they've become a bit common place now.
    As for BFA : Alliance PvP hippo will always go down as a great big "I don't understand why this happened but I'm happy it did". And I really loved the crab from the Nazjatar meta.

    It’s not removing fun, you missed the boat so you don’t get to ride.

    Yup. The SL S1 gladiator mount. Not that I ever had a chance, because I don't pvp.

    Shackled ur'zul and green version of gul'dan infernal. Jaina mythic and N'zoth mythic mounts are cool as well. I ride 4 of them most of the time.

    my free mount I got for being a 6 month subscriber.

    Fits really well with my Belf and my Velf.
    We're all newbs, some are just more newbier than others.

    Just a burned out hardcore raider turned casual.
    I'm tired. So very tired. Can I just lay my head on your lap and fall asleep?

    Offhandedly, the only one I can think of is the AH Brutosaur mount, and that was primarily because of its unique utility. The fact that I was able to snag it without selling boosts or playing the AH is a feat in and of itself. Past that, I'm hard-pressed to think of any "must-haves" that I went out of my way to farm. Most mounts were just checking off collection boxes for me.

    The jellyfish mount from one of the Zerith Mortis achievements. Also, the snail mounts from mount crafting.
