Nice, going to buying that one too! And I can feed it my TRH!
I'm already anticipating the qq goodness in trade the first day this is available. I love my sparklepony.
I would definitely buy this for Japan relief so I hope that's what it is.
I really really hope that this is a benefit for Japan. If it sells anything like the steed the proceeds would be an amazing amount of help.
Can I get a Winged Lion mount for my Winged Lion, so it can fly while I fly?
I hope first 24h of sales go to Japan.
I really hope the proceeds do go to an organization. Then I can justify my spending on a virtual item! lmao.
I'll say what I've said to every other request for Blizzard to make something to support Japan:If you really want to help Japan, go donate. You shouldn't need a shiny carrot on a stick to motivate you to do so. Sure, it would be thoughtul for Blizzard to make some of the proceeds from this mount go to a good cause, but your donation shouldn't hinge upon whether you get a new mount or not. Besides, if you donate directly, more of the money will go to the cause.
There's really no need to be negative about people hoping the proceeds go to Japan. I'm sure that many of these individuals, myself included, have already donated through the Red Cross or another reputable disaster relief company. It would be fantastic if Blizzard would send the money over there because there will undoubtedly be MANY purchases made by people who otherwise would not have donated at all. Money is money. It doesn't have to come only from those that truly care to make a real difference.
I would purchase this mount even if no proceeds were being donated to Japan from Blizzard. Knowing $$ would be donated tho doesn't make me second guess the purchase tho.
100% of the proceeds should be going to Japan. I'd rather not give any money to Blizzard's soon-to-be ~premium item shop~, but if it's all going to a good cause, I will.
Gief!That's a beautiful mount.
I don't care what anybody else says I just want an awesome Winged Lion! =DMy Sparklepony gets used and this will as well.Here's hoping the proceeds do indeed go to Japan relief so I won't feel as bad about spending money on something I don't need =P
Hooray, another cool-looking mount ruined by the fact that half your server will have it instantly.
Well, maybe I can share a thought of mine why they're doing this ;Let says I'm a blizz staff and I'm a 3D modeler if my Company donate money for japan, I feel i'm just donating from my money pocket and thats it done and settle, yes? But deep down inside my sub-conscious telling me....I CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT, I WANT TO HELP USING MY PROFESSION SKILL . and I believe if one of staff thinks that way, it starts a spark inspiration to other people and departments inside there thinking "YEA WHY NOT? HOW BOUT THAT? Hey we're a one of the Most Epic company that has strive with legendary breakthrough in Games, we should do something much more than just donating thousand/millions/billions/ba-jillions of USD. Acount Department would see this a a Win-Win help and no deficit growth in the accounts. It also gives us customer that are quietly not exactly donating to japan but saying they are, a drive to buy and also felt happy/relieved that they're are in the end Helping Japan.So i guess to them Blizz staff, if they want to help they wanna do the Blizz way.Of course nonetheless, i'm just being hopeful and having faith in them that they are doing in this matter.
As much as I now dislike giving more $$$ to Blizzard, this mount does look very nice. They could entice my dollars away a little quicker if it were assisting a charity or the disaster relief effort.
I dearly hope this goes to an organization. Because my father will never agree to buy any novelty item online, and while I didn't particularly care about a little Ragnaros or that retarded horse, this actually looks amazing, and would be a little spiteful if I couldn't obtain it because of Blizzard's pockets.
