The Mount Poll Ends Today: Updated Stats Hours Before the End

Recommended Posts

52185-world-wide-shadowlands-mount-poll-
 

Update: the polls are closed and the Wandering Ancient has won, as expected, in both the US, EU and China regions! The rest of the pack are also at the same % levels as previously posted in this thread, with another 5,000 players having voted. We're definitely getting a big walking tree as the mount, but hopefully we'll also get some of the others through some other means as well!

We also have the poll results for China, where the Ancient got to 42%:

    The very popular Shadowlands free mount poll is ending in just a few hours (10PM CEST, 3PM PDT), and we're taking one final look at the numbers and the changes since yesterday to see if we can get even more people to push their favorites! It's also really impressive that over 250,000 people have voted in the US and EU alone, with the world-wide total being much higher. And, as we've mentioned before, 2nd and 3rd places will probably also matter, as Blizzard will almost certainly make more than just the winner.

      In the EU 5,000 additional people have voted, but the ratios haven't shifted, in fact the percentages are identical to yesterday's:

      The US saw even more new entries, with 6,000 players chiming in, but there's still no movement on the percentages there either, as it's going to take a lot more focused support for any of the mounts that aren't the Ancient!

      Unfortunately we weren't able to get an updated number from the Asia servers.

      It's great to see that many people voting, especially in the last day, as it shows how passionate the WoW community can be. You can also see that in the fan art, which you can check out here, and even some potential similar in-game models here. So get everyone you know to vote for the Spelltome, uh, we mean your favorite, whichever that may be! We totally don't have a favorite!

          Another announcement, another meme onslaught. This time around the Jailer seems to have gotten the brunt of it, as his appearance in the story video inspired many fan interpretations, with some amazing one and some with... genuinely frightening connotations.
          We'll start with my personal favorite, as it's the perfect It's Always Sunny meme and a pretty damn good Avengers one as well, so big congrats to dorm_five!

          After that excellent Dr. Strange/Khadgar crossover we move on to a more general one, as CD Projekt Red gets some of the heat as well:

          And then we're right back to the Jailer, who looked a lot more intimidating before the redditors went at him, as they zeroed in on his wonderfully luscious lips:

          Then we have a solid use of the new WoW meme format:

          And even though we already covered this one before, the new Santa deserves one more look.

          But we saved the best (worst?) Jailer one for last, and we assure you you won't look at him the same way after this one, as Alshainkt really nailed it:

          In case you weren't aware, the November 23rd Shadowlands release date comes exactly 16 years after the original World of Warcraft release date, to the day! Whether this had any effect on the actual date choice is unclear, as it wasn't mentioned in any of the official posts, but it's a great coincidence if it didn't!
          This also means that the Anniversary event will be live when Shadowlands launches, as it usually lasts from November 16th to the 30th (with the last event actually taking place over 2 months, since it was the big 15-year one). Even though we haven't gotten any specifics on it, it's safe to assume we'll at least be getting the same things as the usual yearly anniversaries. This actually includes a 16% XP Celebration Package buff, which will make leveling to 60 even faster, unless Blizzard decide to somehow modify it so it doesn't work in the Shadowlands. You can check out what was available in addition to the XP buff during the last non-15-year event here.

          Maybe we can get a re-issue of the 15th anniversary Collector's Editions? Please Blizz?
          So, there are many reasons to rejoice when Shadowlands comes around, and it's really great that the release date coincided with the exact 16-year anniversary of Vanilla!

          Update: Game Director Ion Hazzikostas has now also commented on the issue.

          As we just got the official Castle Nathria raid release schedule, including Mythic releasing on December 15h, it seems the World First race (and everyone else heading into the maximum difficulty at launch) will be clearing it during or very close to the holidays. This was somewhat unexpected, and I personally even thought they might delay the Mythic part of the raid specifically for this reason, but we now know that isn't the case.
          As you'd expect, it didn't take long for the community to bring out an old blue post where Blizzard specifically state that they don't want players to have to play during the holidays:
          As mentioned in the tweet, the key word there is "try", so Blizzard were very much aware of their own policy when making this particular decision. There were less subtle and understanding/constructive posts as well, with titles like "Times change I think. For the worse." and similar, as well as some actually pretty great meme-y posts:

          The reality of the situation is a little more complex, as the raid race itself will likely be finished in the first reset, at least for the very top guilds, but there are many, many more guilds outside the top 10 (or even top 100) that will still be pushing and playing during the holidays. While delaying Mythic only would have been a weird and unprecedented decision, players would probably understand, and the top raiders that will be racing would welcome it, but it seems it's set in stone now, so at least we get some World First entertainment just before and probably during the holidays as well!

          Here comes a response to the holiday-related release of the first Shadowlands raid from Game Director Ion Hazzikostas, as he talks about how a potential delay would affect the pacing of the expansion and how trying to avoid situations like this isn't always possible. The response comes in relation to a WarcraftLogs tweet and a reply to it, as originally spotted by Wowhead.
