New Store Fox Mount: Vulpine Familiar

Recommended Posts

It's fluffy, foxy and white, with some wings to boot. The latest 25$ store mount is the Vulpine Familiar and they're apparently "fiercely intelligent and insatiably curious", whatever that means for a WoW mount. It has a blue saddle and is vaguely horse-shaped, so it should be on the side of the Alliance, but they don't like the Vulpera much, so it's a conflicted mount to say the least.

The fox that won’t trick you

 

Fiercely intelligent and insatiably curious, this species of fox has travelled the Great Dark Beyond to seek the companionship of the greatest heroes of Azeroth. Vulpine Familiars are born daredevils, and any one of them would make a great companion on your adventures throughout Azeroth and beyond.

Automatically upgrades

Vulpine Familiar automatically scales to the fastest riding skill known by each character. If they aren’t high enough level to use a flying mount, it will still be usable as a ground mount.

If you're interested, head on over to the store and get yours.

Blizzard, are you trying to compete with Bethesda to see which of you can lose your fanbase quicker? Because this and 8.1's lack of content aren't winning you anyone's favor.

Normally I'm not too bothered by store mounts, but we already had two store exclusives these last few weeks, the Dreadwake and the Meat Wagon. And looking at the mounts that we currently can get in-game, most of them are generic, ugly, purely ground-based, or any combination of those. We really could do with something neat like the Cloud Serpents or Netherdrakes instead of all the random drops and vendor mounts...

Don't worry about it the more people complain and unsubscribe, the more World of Warcraft goes away...and then everyone will either be happier, relieved or angry at the fact they cancelled future development in the game because a mass exodus happened and could no longer fund/support the game...hmmmm reminds of the quick way Star Wars Galaxies died...We will all surely take it to the man!

The Dreadwake was a promotional mount, if you had a 6m sub active, they gift you the mount.

The Meat Wagon is nother promotional mount, not a store mount, it came with another game deluxe edition.

This is the first store mount for the xpac, and I don't thing that is a bad thing. It's a really nice looking. And looks diferent that any other mount ingame.

I won't waste money on it. But I don't care if they made this. Specially bcose they have added a lot more mount ingame that the one they put in store.

It's pretty and that's about it.  However I am not overly thrilled about the current ingame gold/token currency mounts that were introduced.  The price is a bit steep for my liking. eg) the new 333k Frog mounts or the 750 Honorbound Medals for one of the new mounts centered around Darkshore.

      As usual it didn't take long for the Wowsecrets discord to come up with a solution to one of the game's mysteries. And while this particular one wasn't that complex, it's still impressive how fast they got it done. Fabious , the underwater mount from Nazjatar appears to be a very vain seahorse and requires a lot of attention. Luckily, Zenkass/Kassidi of Proudmoore US figured out that what he really wants is his picture taken with the player and he'll join them in their quest!
      To obtain this mount, you simply go to Bloodfin Village in Nazjatar (around 25,29), hope he's there and use your S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera MkII on him. If you do find him you should be quick about it, as once he spawns he runs around for 2 minutes and then is gone again. Luckily though, anyone that's there while he's moving around can get the mount in this manner, so it's not limited to 1 player per spawn.
      Thanks to Vyndoriesh over on r/WoW for the explanation!
       
      "He emerges from the water, fins swaying lazily in the breeze, sun-kissed scales glittering. He is... Fabious."

      We have three short blue posts today covering a recently fixed bug from the PTR regarding a quest reward item level getting reduced, a second clarifying how the ranks for the new essence system work and a third on the mobile app getting updated as we speak.

      First off, it seems an early Nazjatar quest reward weapon has had it's item level drastically reduced from the PTR version (415 to 370), as the old version was bugged and had an unintentionally high one:
      Quest Reward (source)
      Hello.
      I can confirm that there was a bug in the PTR that was causing this reward to generate at an unintentionally high item level, and the bug was finally fixed just before the content update went live.
      So you’re seeing the intended power of the reward, and it should be consistent with other rewards that come from similar activities.
      Secondly, there's a tweet clarifying the requirements for higher rank essences:
      And finally, the mobile app isn't functioning for some players as it's currently being updated and should pop up at slightly different times for different users:
      Mobile App (source)
      There is an update to the app that came today with Rise of Azshara/8.2. It may take a while for the update to propagate out but we have confirmed that people are receiving it. Keep an eye out for updates on your device and you will be able to use the app again soon.
      Thanks all!
