Are they seriously charging people for this? Pay for a discolored mount to celebrate 15 years of paying a monthly fee for a game?

The like/dislike ratio of the video is laughable, by the way.

Wish it would be an in-game thing... meh.... at least it has a cool tie-in with the calia lore and Eonar etc. Bought it 20 mins after it came out, shouldn't have but if I have an opprtunity to get something that will never ever be available again, I've got to take it.

I am really surprised by people who have no appreciation for art whatsoever, and blindly bash stuff because they are dissatisfied by something else (like microtransactions).

I have to say, i dislike this, being in the store, as well, and would like it to be a completely exclusive thing to the anniversary edition (even if that includes me never getting it). It being in the store, devalues the pride people would have from getting it in the special game edition, which is really saddening 😞

Best would be, if they would start a questchain or achievement connected to the anniversary ingame, and give it as a reward.

But besides all this, it is a beautiful mount. The little stone cracks look awesome, and the color is nicely chosen, giving me an impression of a gargoyle-statue. Having those decent and not to bright particle effect on the wings, hinting to magic bringing those statues to life. Man i love this mount.

Don't get me wrong, the mount IS pretty, but it is not worth buying. And considering this is a celebration, they should have made this an achievement reward for everyone that logs in on WoW's anniversary (or something else). We already have to pay for subscription.

In my head this looks kinda like "Hey, come celebrate WoW's anniversary... By spending MORE MONEY." If Blizzard wants to attracts its playerbase back in WoW, this is definitely NOT the way to do so.

Holy *filtered* the likes/dislikes ratio on the vid. People are easily offended these days. Yea, this feels kinda greedy, "celebrate the anniversary by buying something from us" but as the game industry stands today, I don't think this is that is as INFURIATING as it seems in the comments.

Yeah, exactly. I totally agree. I just wanted to mention the undeserved bashing of the looks of those mounts. Thanks for clarifying.

As i said, i would even be fine, if it is JUST for the special edition, and not additionaly on the store. The greed is so obvious. 😞

At least actual rewards from anniversary are good, Deathwing-like mount and pet. Much better than these. That dislike ratio on video only gets bigger...

Gotta throw my 2 cents in here...

On past anniversaries, we would get a tabard or an achievement, which is pretty minor in terms of effort. This mount is not just an uncolored re-skin, a tremendous amount of work went into the skin and effects on this asset, which requires multiple teams of highly paid designers, engineers, QA, release management, and more to get this thing into production. I was definitely surprised by the price, but to give away this asset for free when it has no connection to the current expansion or experience doesnt make sense.

Also, would like to insert the obligatory comment about how all the items in the shop can be bought with gold and there no difference between this thing and the transmog yak, brontosaurus, and other gold-locked items.

 

Dont forget - blizz is a game studio owned by a profit company. Their goal is to generate revenue so of course they will add items into the game that can be bought with money - its smart business. What blizz does differently is they allow players to buy any of that stuff with gold earned in game. Its not greed, its just reality. 

If you dont like it, then stop playing AAA games

Well, they already did shop mounts with themes related to certain expansions, so this is not a rule they will follow.

No offence, but that's a very shitty excuse. It doesn't have to be that way, at least now there are some laws against gambling, perhaps at one point there will be enough pushback against some other types of transactions. Also, it is greed, that excuse might only work in f2p game, but not one with subscription. That being said, in-game rewards for this event will be much better, as I posted above, so these two will likely be quickly forgotten by players.

Before I say anything else, I'm not a fan of the shop mounts. I think they are overpriced, like most store items and services, and there really is no reason for them to be on the store.

What really surprises me is not the dislike number on the video (that has always happened since the introduction of TRH) but that people are not even close to being this upset about vendor mounts that can be bought with gold, and that gold can be bought with tokens, making them effectively "store mounts". And it works the other way around as well. I have bought several store mounts just with tokens because of how broken gold farming was in WoD and Legion (in fact, I haven't spent a single dime on WoW since the token was introduced).

Again, not saying that this makes it alright, I'm just saying that vendor mounts for gold are just as stupid yet no one seems to care. I would've really prefered it if they had kept these specific mounts as CE exclusives.

Due to the series of events this year because of BFA and Blizzard Entertainment I am surprise that these basic mounts are not a gratuity gift to the playerbase as a celebration of 15 years of World of Warcraft.  Yes they are basic and pretty and I understand I don't necessarily have to purchase them.  And apparently if people pre-ordered the 15th anniversary bundle they will not have access to these mounts till Oct./Nov. unless Blizzard bends the rules and allows those players to get their mounts in advance.  However it seems just about every 2 months or so I am seeing a brand new gimmick or mount being added to the cash shop.  It does tend to make me worry for the future of this game.

But that is just my two cents on the topic.

I see a whole lot of complaining about these mounts. 

Theyre ugly / lame / not worth it?  dont buy it.  Yeesh. 

They are STILL offering the CE pack or did before at least the WOW store ran out.

Theyre STILL having the ingame event and mount/pet.  

This whole "EVERYTHING SHOULD BE FREE" mentality is more lame than the mounts you DONT HAVE TO BUY.

This whole "EVERYTHING SHOULD BE FREE" mentality is more lame than the mounts you DONT HAVE TO BUY.  

I usually ignore the cash shop for the most part unless I intend to pre-order an expansion or use a Token.  Very rarely do I buy a mount from the cash shop.

Yes they are however some places will not allow the release of codes for redemption till the time of the games release or when the CE is released.  Which means even though players have bought the CE version, in advance, they will not be able to redeem those mounts till release date unless Blizzard changes this rule.

And I do like those type of events because it gets a lot of the playerbase involved to obtain them as a whole.  My Guild Leader is thinking of organizing an all Guild Run once this event goes live.

I'm not stating everything must be 'free' I just find it odd that Blizzard would pick a simple mount design, throw on a new shade of paint, then hang a price tag on it where you can get several versions of that mount ingame from lesser to greater via achievement or purchase from a vendor with gold.  If anything I thought it would be very interesting if they spruce up a Scarab Mount or a type of Fire Elemental instead to tie in the release of Classic.  If Blizzard wants to be repetitive and continue on this trend then ok...however when Blizzard takes a discontinuation or removal of armor xmog sets (eg. Rated PvP armor sets) and start slapping a price tag on them or start initiating a loot box system in the cash shop then it's time for me to move onto a different game.    EA did this to SWOTR to the point where new and relative content may not be released/playable 6 months to even 2+ years but have the ability to be sure to push items in the cash shop on a weekly basis instead.  I do NOT want to see Blizzard go down this path.

Neither do I.

But them reskinning a mount has nothing to do with their unwillingness to get a expac ready to go in 2+years.  

I just dont get the anger over this.  

What can be more 'classic' than THE faction mount?  Its even made of stone like its old AF.  

and the best part about it is YOU DONT HAVE TO BUY THE THING!  

It took them 15 minutes, maybe a few hours to design, it didnt make expansions push back for months, nothing. 

Its not some crazy 'cash grab', its not detrimental to the play of the game, its not turning into Pay2Win...  heck its not even the ONLY thing theyre doing for the anniversary!  Im just at 100% a  loss over the absolute tantrums people are throwing over this.

Short version simple is not eye appealing for a 15th year anniversary when simple has already been in the game for over 15 years imo.  I myself will not buy these mounts but I am not going to discourage those that want to add them to their collection. If you want them go for it in the end it is your money that you are spending at the end of the day.  Last I checked the video that debut these mounts had a  24k down votes; a lot of people are still upset and unhappy with the results of BFA and Blizzard in general.  Hence why I mentioned earlier that if Blizzard/Activision  wanted to reassure and make amends with the playerbase it would be wise to make a gratuity gift (not an ingame event) and rebuild/regain the respective consumer/players' trust again on a business stand point.   Telling people they have no right to be upset, hate the company, or not even look into the cashshop and move on is simply adding more salt to the wound...I know it's annoying but what else could you do eh?

If Activision says add it Blizzard will be force to do it under contract obligations. There is no if's, and's, or but's about this horrid truth of working for a corporation.  You either comply or get ready to start looking for other places of employment while they get someone else to work with them.   The WoW forums are riddled with constant requests of said loot boxes for WoW and the more this is asked the more tempting it is for Activsion/Blizzard to give in to these requests.  The other day I came across an individual that was literally begging Blizzard to make the Essences of 8.2.5 obtainable through the cash shop because they did not want to work toward/grind for them ingame.

P2W comes in a various assortment of forms; this is not what I am worried about for WoW.  I am worried that the temptation to give in to some of these requests will eventually come to fruition even if wished they do not.

      We've all heard about the man who's finished the game very recently, getting all the currently available achievements and claiming that he can now finally play the game. What you may not have known is that this is his second time to do so, as he also finished Legion World First back when it was current! We took some time out to talk to Xirev about his impressive... ahem... achievement, and found out a whole lot more about his process.
      He talks about the worst things he's had to endure on specific achievements, the 1100 days played across all his accounts and characters, when and why he started this endeavor, his first achievement complete expansion, some very negative comments he's gotten about his accomplishments, his overall thoughts on BfA as someone who's spent a lot of time in its every nook and cranny, and a lot more!
       
      When did you decide to start actively working on getting all the achievements in the game? 
      I started caring about achievements in Cataclysm, but working on the achievement What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been in Wrath of the Lich King was what first introduced me to doing them - I didn’t end up finishing it until Mists of Pandaria though. In Wrath of the Lich King I did achievements for the rewards that they gave, in Cataclysm I started actively doing any achievement that I could regardless of the reward - it was mostly rep grinds in the beginning.
      Every expansion after Cataclysm increased my conviction to try to get everything, and in Warlords of Draenor I was fully committed to finish it all, as it was a very good expansion to do that sort of thing since there wasn’t much new content added. Seeing people AFK in Orgrimmar in their corner that they always stood in showing off their gear, mounts and ton of achievements was a big motivating factor to want to strive for the same thing. 
       
      You had also completed Legion as the first with all achievements, was that your first “complete” expansion and (then current) max achievement points? 
      Warlords of Draenor was the first time I finished with everything but it was a while after other people did it. I’ve been in the top 10 of achievement points since the start of Legion all the way until now. Sometimes being very far ahead of even the second place as can be seen here:


      What would you say the general ratio is of the achievements you got on a single character vs. what you had to do on others to get them all complete and how much /played do you have on your accounts?
      I have most achievements on my main Mage, if I at one point did an achievement on another character I would go back and do it on my Mage again just to have everything done on one character. My /played on my Mage is 565 days total and 117 days at 120. Total playtime on my main account is 974 days and I have a second account with 303 days. Some of that time is overlap, but definitely not all of it. I also have a third account with 32 days but that’s all overlap with the other two. So I’d say total across all of the accounts is somewhere around 1100 days.
       
      What would be your top 5 (or more) worst and/or most difficult achievements to get? 
      What comes to mind in BFA is Most Minis Wins, that achievement made me take a 2 month break from playing because I wasn’t getting the last one I needed. I ended up getting it on my first try the day I came back after the break.

      Catchin' Some Rays also took quite a lot of time and was really frustrating because at the start of the expansion the drop rate was really high and people got it within 50 casts - I put it off for too long and they significantly reduced the drop rate, so it took me close to 8000 casts to get it. Knowing I could have gotten it much faster made that achievement especially sour in my mouth.

      Existential Crisis from Mythrax in Uldir was probably the hardest raid achievement ever added before they fixed it. The description of the achievement and what you actually had to do to earn it was completely reversed and it took around 200 wipes to get it, which is harder than most Mythic bosses.

      You’re only as strong as your weakest link and it was hard to find people willing to spend time on trying to do it.

      The high rated PvP achievements are definitely the all time hardest to get though.

      How was BfA in terms of the new achievements added compared to previous expansions?
      I’d say it was pretty similar, maybe a bit more than Legion. If you consider the 500 Honor Level achievement as being added in BFA (was added in the prepatch) then the time investment needed to finish all achievements significantly increased for people who did not farm a lot of Prestiges on different characters in Legion.
       
      How does it feel clearing everything on that list out? You joked you can then finally start playing the game, but does completing all the achievements make you feel “done” with the game or does it give you more freedom to do what you like?
      It feels like when it’s your birthday, you don’t feel much different from the day before. Sure, there’s some sense of relief of “I’m finished now” followed by the realization that the main factor of why I’m playing the game has suddenly disappeared. I have finished all achievements in the game multiple times in BFA already, same thing in Legion, with each patch I end up with everything so I’m kind of used to it by now. It’s no longer about striving for something, it’s all about maintaining which isn’t as fun I think. What I did when I was done with everything in Legion was to play Final Fantasy 14 for a month followed by working on collecting transmog and such for the addon All The Things. I have not done much if any All The Things collection in BFA apart from the things I usually do.

      I’m not sure what I’ll do this time around though, probably just continue doing the things I was doing before.
       
      What is your favorite WoW activity? 
      Going for all achievements, not doing the achievements themselves, just the collective effort of doing all of them.
       
      What was the path that you took to getting this done? Did you have a very specific way in which you approached it or did you just play the various content and then narrowed it down as you completed specific ones?
      At first I mostly went for achievements that awarded something, then achievements that indirectly rewarded something (like reputations), after that I kinda picked a category and worked my way through it as much as I could. So for example when I decided it was time to do fishing I’d only do fishing achievements until they were all done.
       
      When a new expansion comes up, do you actually play it “normally” just to enjoy it for a while, or do you head straight into the achievement hunt? 
      I think doing the achievements is playing the game normally, they guide you towards doing all the different activities the game has to offer, and as I don’t have a certain preference to what type of content I play the game for it is normal for me to just do everything that is on offer. They don’t take you that far off the beaten path. I usually never prepare beforehand when a new expansion or patch comes out, I like going into it and figuring out what I want to prioritize and focus on while it’s live. It would probably be better if I did prepare but I don’t think it’s that worth it.
       
      What were some of your favorite achievements to do (and not just the really easy and fast ones ? )
      It kind of depends, achievements that I was able to do while watching a show or something were the ones that felt the most satisfying to do because it was almost like I wasn’t even playing the game while finishing a long achievement. Others were fun to do just due to how hardcore I went about doing it, like doing 4000 daily quests in 2 weeks by figuring out which daily quests were the fastest ones to do on as many characters as possible each day, and then just bruteforcing the 10000 daily quest achievement.

      Farming PvP WQs on 45 characters to get 90k honor per day to finish the 500 Honor Level achievement was also fun to do. It wasn’t super necessary though, as I started at 350 Honor Level the day the prepatch came out because I had done a lot of Prestige farming in Legion. I would have gotten 500 by now without doing the WQ grind anyway as I’m at 673 Honor Level as of right now.

      Achievements that no one really had an idea on how to do and having to figure it out on your own are fun as well, like Naxt Victim which by the looks of the Wowhead comment I made about it helped a lot of people out.
       
      As someone who’s spent possibly the most time dealing with the specifics of the expansion, what are your thoughts about BfA in general and what would be some of your favorite and least favorite things about it?
      BFA has been pretty bad for my motivation I feel like. Island Expeditions completely broke my will to farm things outside of achievements, the sheer amount of stuff and incredibly low drop rate just made me feel like it just wasn’t worth the time to farm, I would rather just play another game instead. Low drop rate pets and mounts from rares that just take ages to get is also something I don’t like, Soundless, Rustfeather, Arachnoid Harvester, I feel like the drop rate is too low and it just forces you to keep spinning the slot machine until you get it. Paragon reputation boxes were bad in Legion and they are bad in BFA as well, it is probably what I dislike the most about the game right now. The fact that you have to farm paragon reputation on both factions to get everything is also simply ridiculous. 

      The amount of gold sink mounts they’ve put into the game this expansion is also something I don’t like, they’ve removed all the methods I had to earn passive gold and put tons of mounts that cost a lot in, and that also made me stop caring about getting all mounts and such.

      I usually play a lot of alts and more than 50% of my total played used to be across alts, but now in BFA I’ve barely played them at all, I don’t even have all classes at 120. They made the incursions too weak compared to the Legion assaults so I didn’t feel like I had an efficient way of leveling my alts with just a few minutes every day. The corruption system is also something I dislike, mostly because I’ve been really unlucky with it. If there was an easier way to get the corruptions you wanted it would be better. Some goods things about BFA have been the essences I think, Memory of Lucid Dreams completely saved Fire Mage after they basically cut the spec in half in BFA. The raids have been pretty decent I suppose, losing master looting wasn’t that great though.
       
      Are you looking forward to Shadowlands?
      Sure. I know that if I don’t have much time to play because of other circumstances I will still probably have enough time to finish all achievements and I’ve been going for this a long time so might as well continue.
       
      Knowing how much effort it’s taken you to get here, if you could go back would you do it all over again?
      Well that’s kind of tricky. I feel like I have gotten to know myself better because I’ve done this, but also it is a lot of time invested. I’ve gotten a lot of insensitive comments about mental health and me wasting my life, but just because I have tangible proof of my “wasted” time it doesn’t mean I waste more time than others. I’ve just had a very specific goal that I’ve achieved as efficiently as possible, no one is able to be 100% productive all the time. I feel like it has helped me try harder at university and striving towards achieving my goals in life. I have not failed a single exam during my time at uni even while playing a lot. So yes, I would do it again and I’m satisfied with what I’ve accomplished.
       
      A very positive end to the interview, and we'd just like to congratulate Xirev on what he's accomplished once more and are looking forward to him getting there again in Shadowlands!

      UPDATE: We caught up with Xirev and had a chat about his accomplishment, which you can check out here.
      Xirev from Vashj (EU) has earned all 3,927 achievements that are currently available in the game. Congratulations!
      Xirev from the <Colour> guild managed to complete all achievements in World of Warcraft that have been added so far which must have taken a lot of dedication. He currently owns 484 out of 555 mounts and all battle pets.
      On reddit he joked that now he can finally play the game. Congrats!

      Yesterday, we posted an update regarding Shadowlands Alpha and speculated that we might see it as early as next week. MMO-Champion noticed an update to the Battle.net App which made the wow_beta product no longer marked as deprecated and renamed it to Alpha which is obviously a good sign that Alpha is close.

      Source: via MMO-Champion
    • By Stan
      It seems Shadowlands Alpha has been delayed due to the coronavirus lockdown and the work-from-home policies implemented by Blizzard. Towelliee recently teased on his stream that a dataminable Alpha client could become available as early as next week around Monday/Tuesday. Blizzard also increased the frequency of new builds, hinting they might want to have a playable Alpha up soon.
      Encrypted Shadowlands Alpha Builds
      All Shadowlands Alpha builds are currently encrypted, meaning we aren't able to datamine them at this time. The work-from-home policies were implemented on March 14 and Blizzard released the first Shadowlands Alpha build since the policies were in place on March 17. Below, you can see a list of the most recent builds (taken from wow.tools). The last two builds (33874 and 33915) were released just two days apart, suggesting Blizzard might want to have a playable Alpha up soon.
      March 17 - 9.0.1 Build 33644 > 9.0.1 Build 33710 March 25 - 9.0.1 Build 33710 > 9.0.1 Build 33819 March 31 - 9.0.1 Build 33819 > 9.0.1 Build 33874 April 2 - 9.0.1 Build 33874 > 9.0.1 Build 33915 Dataminable Alpha Next Week?
      Towelliee said on his stream that we can expect a dataminable Alpha build early next week (April 6/7). The actual Alpha should become available a few days or a week later.

      On the MMO-Champ forums, he said Alpha has been pushed back numerous times and that Battle for Azeroth F&F Alpha started five days after the first client was pushed decrypted.
      Obviously, nothing has been confirmed yet and we'll need to wait until next week to figure it out!

      New Jaina & Sylvanas Statues
      New 6'' statues are available for purchase on the Blizzard Gear Store. The smaller Jaina statue looks so much better than the 18'' statue which sells for $369 and has a somewhat weird face that did not reflect her in-game appearance. For comparison, here's the 18'' statue and below you will find the new updated 6'' version.
