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.

Everyone gets one!

Once it’s activated, Vulpine Familiar will be applied to all present and future characters on a single Battle.net account. It will appear in each character’s pet and mount journal.

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...

I feel like Activision is trying to compensate shareholders for sub losses with any cash grab they can squeeze out of WoW right now.

But we just befriended (or purged if you're evil Alliance) a Fox race... And they're expected to be an allied race in an upcoming patch...

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.

      Rextroy is back with some more interesting videos and it seems he's starting a new series where he pits 40 of one class against 40 of another, presumably to go with BfA's conflict theme. Apparently both fights had a third, unforeseen adversary in the form of lag, but they ended up being a lot of fun nonetheless, with the lag actually adding a bit of tension to the proceedings, as abilities just erupt in waves.
      First off we have a Hero class face-off to mirror Arthas and Illidan's fight from Frozen Throne:
       
      And then it's on to Light vs. Death as Paladins take on the Lich King's elite:
       
      There's also an added bonus, as Rextroy also put together a weird expedition to Northrend, composed entirely of low level recruits to see if they could make it through the ghoul and undead infested Bombardment area in Icecrown. Why? Why not!
       
      It's always great to see these kinds of events, reminding us that there's always something to do in Azeroth, even if you're not too fond of the current content. MMOs are usually at their best when players take the reins and find their own fun, so thanks go out to Rextroy for these types of events and we hope to see more like it soon.
      If you know any interesting events like this, post your favorites below!

      Today's hotfixes are mostly just the PvP mana regen tuning from yesterday, but we also have some more Battle of Dazar'alor changes, this time for Heroic difficulty High Tinker and Rastakhan.
      February 14 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar’alor High Tinker Mekkatorque Wind Up now grants 10% Haste and Movement Speed in Heroic difficulty (was 20%). Boss health lowered by 5% in Heroic difficulty. King Rastakhan Seal of Purification, Scorching Detonation, and Withering Burst should no longer hit pets. Uldir Taloc Orbs of Harmony will now respawn when the Taloc encounter resets. Player versus Player
      Restoration Druid mana regeneration is now reduced by 55% in PvP. Holy Priest, Holy Paladin, Restoration Shaman, and Mistweaver Monk mana regeneration is now reduced by 50% in PvP. Discipline Priest mana regeneration is now reduced by 45% in PvP. Balance Druid, Feral Druid, and Elemental Shaman mana regeneration is reduced by 35% in PvP. Developers’ notes: We’ve taken a careful look at healer mana during longer PvP engagements in both Arenas and battlegrounds, and the changes above are intended to address several concerns. In PvP, we want mana to feel like a more critical resource, and we want mana efficiency to be an important part of PvP healing. At the beginning of Battle for Azeroth, mana regeneration from all healer specs was reduced by 15-30% (depending on the class), and after reviewing the current state of the game, we feel like further reductions are necessary to both healer specs and a few hybrid specs. Druid
      Restoration Nourish (PvP Talent) mana cost increased by 30% Rogue
      Assassination Neurotoxin now increases the cooldown of affected spells by 1 sec, down from 3 sec. Neurotoxin now has a 45 second cooldown, up from 25 sec. Neurotoxin now has a 3 sec duration, down from 10 sec. Developers note: Unfortunately, we are unable to fix a number of technical issues with this spell at this time. We’re working on a fix for it that we hope to include in 8.1.5. Previous hotfixes.
