I just got the word from The Godmother, and I am zerg rushing the presses on this one.
The most important news to come out of the Beta is here.
MOUNTS ARE ACCOUNT WIDE AFTER ALL!!!!!
Mumper commented on this thread an update, and it’s pretty specific;
This is truly liberating news. I know, I know, most people probably read my earlier post about this issue and thought I’d gone batshit crazy. This is probably one of the most trivial issues you could find in the game, and here I am bemoaning some mounts not being shared.
Heck, Druid Tanks are facing some serious issues in MoP right now, and instead of talking about any of that I spend time whining about mounts.
The thing is, this isn’t trivial to me, because a large part of the fun I and Alex are getting from the game come from the aesthetics of characters, costumes, mounts and pets.
Those of you who have known me through my writing for a while probably know what I’m about to say.
Despite my grumpiness in my prior post…
I went ahead and already got a motorcycle mount. I farmed the materials, acquired the gold, and had my good friend Melpo craft it for me. I learned it on my Hunter, fulfilling my own long held desire, and then we spent an evening going for a ride.
I may bitch, piss and moan about how much better something could be, but in the end I said to hell with it and got me mah choppa!
Now I get to enjoy the fruits of my labors in MoP ANYWAY!
Oh, and I was already working, slowly, on gathering the mats for Alex to fulfill what he has wanted to a long time, to be able to become a Sandstone Drake. To transform into a dragon!
How much cooler that, once that is complete, he’ll know that it will be shared by all the other characters he ever has that rises high enough to do it. And if that has a level 85 restriction on it someday, so be it.
Rejoice! Rejoice my fellow bikers, and go forth to conquer those damn mounts!
