Glad I'm rolling lock. But then again, the warlock epic mount is still around 500g after quest mats that you buy from the imp and off AH, plus all the time spent doing the quests, trucking back n forth between kalimdor and eastern kingdoms, etc.
I just can't WAIT to hear all the people who were crying about how much they wanted Classic change their tune when they find out they are ON FOOT till level 40. They'll be crying for much different reasons then....
just in here to wait for all the people to realize they wont be flying in classic. ever. heh. :)
Even though we already knew this would be the mount system version I am glad to have it confirmed. This way puts a lot more importance on your moint choice. With the cost on the mount itself whichever you choose will likely stay with ya for a very long time. Makea it more special. As for all those people talking about how people will whine when they can't fly... If you need flying in your game then don't play classic. But there are a ton of people who don't like flying in the current game. Personally i think it only works in zones designed specifically to accomodate it. So I'm glad we won't have it. Try giving people a chance to enjoy the game before just shouting about how others couldn't possibly like the old game because it doesn't have X or Y.
People already know there’s no mounts until 40 and no flying at all. Don’t get too excited. In fact, don’t the current devs basically despise flying? So in essence, the Classic model is something they’d like to adhere to more closely. Maybe those who prefer Retail should prepare for more Classic-style game features and changes, heh.
I seem to remember having to mine a lot of thorium to make the barding for the pally mount.
This is disappointing. I wish they would have brought back the old epic mounts.
You forgot to mention that Taurens can only ride Kodos, the AV wolf and the drop mounts (rivendare’s deathcharger, ZG mounts and AQ bugs (I dont remember if later in vanilla or until BC they could buy and mount normal wolves. I know for a fact that until BC they couldn’t mount other horde mounts.) and only gnomes and dwarves can ride mechanostriders.
While Paladins and Warlocks had cheaper mounts, please remember that they won't be available until Phase 2, which probably means you'll have the first 6 months or so with a normal mount.
