Ya know what's funny? A year ago, I would torn Blizz a new one cuz of store mounts and how bad WoD was with mounts. But now, I'm actually ok with this. Since we already have an amazing variations of mounts (not to mention the 7.3 ones as well), this is fine. Hell, the class mounts alone are enough imo.

Might buy this when it's a bit cheaper. 30 euro is a bit much for me

So...

Kil'Jaeden mythic doesn't award any mount at all.

Yet Blizzard had this model ready to deliver, and decided to instead sell it.

...

Let me get this straight: you accept the challenge and play the game to the highest level. Invest tons of hours gearing up, perfecting gameplay, farming, progressing. It takes a lot of dedication to climb this mountain and clear a mythic raid. Specially bosses like Avatar and KJ. Everything in the game converges to this challenge, that is clearing the last boss on the highest difficulty.
You finally do it and, unlike Yogg0, Lich King25H, RagnarosH, etc, you get nothing from freaking Kil'Jaeden, one of the most important figures in the history of WoW.

And there was a really good looking mount, with a somewhat draenic flavor, that was just ready to go to shop.

....

Come on, guys.

And people to this day insist that it wasn't cancer putting a mount shop on a game you pay for retail, for expansions AND A MONTHLY FEE.

 

If Wotlk was today Mimiron's Head would be a shop mount.

Weird, as I distinctly remember the first ever shop mount, the Celestial Steed, was released back in WotLK.

The very end of wotlk. Months into icc, it used the same model as Invincible, but reskinned. Caused a major uproar. Yep, i remember it. And still find bullshit an in-game store in a subscription game.

Okay fine, you don't like the in game store. Is there a real problem though?

I hate in-game stores when they sell some kind of game advantage, but here, you can't complain if they had a dev. team making stuff to sell, if you don't like it, you dont buy it, but you are complainig bcose they made something and then try to sell it... and this mount/pets doesn't have anithing special.

And we are in a expansion that bring us A LOT of mounts

Just got him, it has actual wings and doesn't just run through the air.

I regret nothing.

Looking into getting this today, this note on the animation does make me very happy about it!

      We have another interesting interview with Principal Exterior Level Designer Gary Platner and In-game Cinematic Project Director Terran Gregory by VG247. Check out the highlights!
      Check out the full interview over at VG247.
      Interview Highlights
      Alex Afrasiabi designed Battle for Azeroth like it would be the last expansion; they didn't hold back, went for the mega, and seized the day on design. Terran is really sad that gnomes didn't make an appearance in the cinematics, but CGI has its limitations to how many characters can be created. Siege of Lordaeron included more characters than any other Blizzard CGI film before. It's Blizzard's mission to tell the most compelling and emotional story that they can. Making everyone enjoy the story in the same way is an impossible goal. With the release of Warbringers: Sylvanas, Horde players started to show their discontent. There's even been one extreme case of targeted harassment aimed at Christie Golden. Creating a story that revolves around an all-out war required bold decisions. They knew the reactions to the burning of Teldrassil would be passionate, but they did exceed their expectations. Storytelling is about highs and lows. Old Soldier would not have resonated so well without Warbringers: Sylvanas. WoW is a living, breathing game. The team's always looking for ways to improve it. They'll support WoW for as long as the players continue to give them support. From a story perspective, they wondered how great an end WoW would need to have. It's an evergreen franchise that they've maintained like a "carefully-tended bonsai tree."

      We have the inaugural hotfixes of Battle for Azeroth! We have a whole lot of quest fixes, including the inability to start second or third War Campaign Footholds, as well as mounts and dungeons getting a look.
      August 14 (source)
      Dungeons
      Temple of Sethraliss Fixed a bug that caused Avatar of Sethraliss to sometimes become inactive. Mounts
      Captured Dune Scavenger is now usable by both Horde and Alliance characters. Chewed-On Reins of the Terrified Pack Mule is now learnable and usable by Alliance characters. Quests
      The Nazmir quest "Poisoning the Brood" will now share credit to party members. The Targets for "A Wall of Iron" will now respawn more frequently. Players that were in the vicinity of, but did not get credit for killing Vilank'dor, will once again be able to complete the quest "To Sacrifice a Loa". Fixed an issue where too many enemies were participating in "Mojambo". Players should now be able to advance and complete "Devour Humanoid". “Adapting Our Tactics” can now be abandoned and re-accepted after selecting an upgrade to pursue Players who disconnect during “Rodrigo's Revenge” can now continue the quest. “The Last Witch Doctor of Krag'wa” will no longer talk to nearby players who are not on the quest. Crawgs in "Great Brewfest Kodo" will now respawn more frequently. Adjusted the range of the Seaforium Smoke Grenade on “Boom goes the Bomb” so that it can better go boom. Interacting with the Mysterious Brew during "Enforcing Fate" should now reliably grant credit. Fixed an issue that could cause players to be unable to select their second or third War Campaign Footholds. Players who had previously been stuck in this state may now interact with the scouting map near Halford or Nathanos to choose a Foothold. Previous Patch 8.0.1 Hotfixes

      We don't know at this time how to unlock Kul Tirans, but based on requirements of previous Allied Races, it's safe to assume that it's going to be related to new content, Kul Tourist, maybe?
      Playable Classes

      No official racial mount has been announced just yet, but Kul Tiran Druid forms revolve around the "wicker" theme, so the racial mount may very well be a wickerbeast?
