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 Mythic+ record on our hands, as Jdotb, Shakib, Daarkee, Marvink and Mittbitt have cleared CoS on 25+ in time! They even had a minute to spare, despite a death or two right at the end there. Congratulations!
      Here are the stats for the run and team, courtesy or Raider.io.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 7/11-Heroic 11/11-Normal ABT.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: YES. Will consider all, but would love to pick up a Hunter and a Mage for ranged, and add an Enhance Shaman, Windwalker Monk, or Survival Hunter for melee.
      Healers: YES. Looking to add a Holy Paladin to our healing core.
      Tank: NO. No current needs.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we operate as a raid team.

      A first look at racial abilities and passives of Allied Races.
      If you pre-order Battle for Azeroth, you will get early access to four Allied Races. In other words, you will be able to level them up to 110 before the expansion launch. Patch 7.3.5 contains new unlock scenarios, character customization options and all assets to enable Allied Races, so it's really safe to say that they will be part of an upcoming pre-order promotion.
      Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls will be added to the game later. No information about their racials are currently available.
