are we getting trolled by blizz right nowsomeone please tell me this is an april fools leak
Folks bare in mind that the mount is likely not a store mount and will be possibly a special collectors edition type thing Do keep that in mind when speculateing as obvious no clear details have yet been given by blizzard Do not just assume that it will be on the store
The fact that Classic is getting character boosts, isn't a surprise that this might be a store mount, but I am surprised it isn't for live. It is possible that it may come out for both. People warned classic players that they wouldn't eventually get a store. And it is already in the process of happening.And people will pay for it.
When there was a discussion in the community about too much gold in the game, one answer was a new gold sink. I wouldn't mind if this mount did just that .. A unique mount not found in Retail WoW for tons of gold sounds pretty good to me. So I hope that's the case.
as someone who has wanted a Warpstalker mount ever since I saw that bestiary excerpt in one of the old school guides (The Bradygames TBC one i believe) mentioned the Legion using them as mounts, yeah, this really hurts. Hopefully Live/Retail gets this in some form too (Maybe a more high res one which would explain the separate release)
I wonder, was this really made now or was it a asset they played around with in TBC and didn't know where to put it. If it's a store mount I would be quite sad, BUT if they decide to just add mounts as well to the rep Factions that didn't have them in TBC, I'm all for it. OR if it's a Arrena Gadiator mount again Yes please.
Makes no sense for them to drop a mount that only works on the ground for TBC. This could just be a datamined old mount that was never released due to flying making it irrelevant.
Why are people so angry? It's a new mount. If you don't like it, don't get it. You will still get the nostalgia feels when you play TBC classic regardless of people running around on this mount.
i honestly dont get the anger etc, in my opinion its most likely a mount for retail as a tbc promotion, i heard someone say "but the polly count is to low, clearly this is designed for tbc servers" no, i honestly dont think so, a tbc promotion mount with super high poly count wouldnt make sense... because it wouldnt feel like something out of tbc, similiarly the 30 year aniversary package pet also has a low polly count because its encapsulating tbc, in my opinion the only time it would make sense to give us a high polly tbc mount would be if it was a high resolution reskin for example HD alars ashes to celebrate tbc classic, because that is a very recognisable model and well known mount so you could up the quality without losing all the tbc feeling
LOL and people say the slippery slope isn't real. If you accept level boosts, you can only go down from there...
Omg i came back for CLASSIC, not the cash grab cosmetic %^&* that retail has become over the years. They litteraly destroyed the integrity of their own game and they gonna do the same once again. At this point they should just give the IP too a less destructive company. I love their original game but they disguste me. i would'nt be surprised if they introduce the Gold token in Wotlk. And when that day come, i will do what i did with retail, i will just quit. And i think a wouldn't be alone on this.
God I want this mount on live too.
Please don't do this to TBC.
This literally only exists because people are going to buy it, or whatever its attached to. Strongly discourage everyone you know from buying this and Blizzards disgusting greed will go away somewhat.
As someone who plays Retail and Classic, I hope this mount is usable in both. However, the practical realist in me says it won't be.
Is it me or does it look like its using over ten years old textures and model?
