Take the reins of one of Pandaria’s most majestic and rare beasts, the Swift Windsteed, and it is said that good fortune will follow. Dart across the heavens on a silver cloud as fast as your riding skill allows. Once purchased from the Blizzard Store, the mount will be available to all present and future characters for a single Battle.net® account.
Blizz I will say something in Finnish if you don't understand use Google Translate "Mitä helvetin mustaa magiaa on tämä?"
I like this one, the model and texture are very detailed, but I can't stand the leg passing thought the chest armor. I hate this reuse of animations.
it is a Chimera! poor freak of nature... should get to see the world before it dies!
I'd rather ride Buzz Aldrin's recent ex-wife.. and that's bad. Have you seen her pictures? This is almost as bad as the goats from Tiller faction. At least those were free. Certainly not worth $15. Wait, what? $25? Are you out of you f.. *ahem*No thank you, sirs.
I will tame this on hunter!Take it to the deep part of Duskwood,and put it out of its misery!The lesson here is: If an animal is suffering, put it out of its misery. Blizzard is trying to sell that suffering animal for profits.
Instead of wasting time on mounts people obviously dont like, how about *finally* bringing out a cart for your mount?Something like a 4 person cart that can be towed by your mount? At least then you could transport your party around. Or maybe its just me who thinks that would be worth designing.
To those wondering what kind of "ugly" mount this is, it's a stylized Kirin or Qilin from Chinese mythology, known to bring good luck and fortune and is often compared to the unicorn in western culture.Personally, been waiting for a mount like this in an Asian-stylized expansion, though kinda wish it wasn't a Blizz store mount (but not entirely unsurprised, especially when it popped up in the last PTR). Still, again I say to you folks who think it's ugly or shouldn't be in the Blizzard Store - Don't buy it then. Save your hot air for whatever else will rattle your cages in 5.2, because I know there'll be plenty.On an offnote, since this creature was supposed to give good luck, maybe it'll boost your luck when using those damn Elder Charms for loot...?
wow some ugly comments to each there own I actually wanted a reindeer mount that was a perm mount guess I got my wish.
It's a Kirin. Not the prettiest mount for sure, but at least it's not another dragon reskin. Plus it does have unique animations. Lastly, that animated preview doesn't do it justice. The spiked chest armor moves with the legs, the legs do not clip through. Check the run animation on Swift Windsteed's model viewer if you don't believe me.Unless you really like new mounts, it's totally not worth the $25, but i've said that of every Store mount, so...Oh yeah, Windsteed Fawn inc!
I feel like a minority here.I absolutely love the design.
Man, after the Nightwing I was expecting something kool, but serioulsy, Blizz took a World Record Long jump backwards with this thing... when will I get my prayers heard and have a mount of similar epicness to the Firehawks? don't think any1 is gonna waste money on this reindeer :S
An bunny/goat/reindeer from hell o0 ? I've been foolish enough to buy the other mounts but will not buy this one. Looks to stupid for my taste :P
/sigh,it may be pretty detailed but its a flying GOAT on a cloud....come on blizz really...Look at what happened the last time you let goats fly..*points at the Exodar*... We need knew mount designers or something....So,to make up for all these hideous store mounts,you should make use happy by making some giant flying dragon or something that carry's like 10 people,has vendors, as well as a banker..
i like mounts .. crap even farming them .. but this /barf
It's based off Asian lore. I saw this thing running around in game. It's actually kind of cute, I like it's /mountspecial. So far it's the only Blizz store mount I like. However, I REALLY wish it did not have that ridiculous cloud floating underneath it when it was flying.
That is a Beaverlama with horns! WTH!
What? Are you saying this ISN'T a Justin Bieber mount?Damn I was SO happy for a second there :(
