Wut the f!
Not sure i like this mount . Cross between a rain deer and something else a 5 year old would ride, so not sure .
Don't spend $25 on it if you're not willing to. Wait for the mounts to go on sale. They do that periodically. The mount isn't the handsomest of them, but it is very detailed and eyecatching. As a collector of anything and everything, I'll be getting it even if I won't be using it. I think it's unique and ugly, which makes it appeal to me more.
Ok, for those ppl that just want to complain, you can't be helped. But for those that wouldn't mind hearing the reasoning behind this mount...here it is. This mount is a WoW version of what the japanese and chinese call a Ki-rin. It is a mythilogical creature that is said to be a good omen. It is part deer, part dragon, part unicorn. The sighting of one usually indicated the arrival of a sage. They are fearce protectors of nature so much so that when they walk their feet do not touch the ground so as to not harm a single blade of grass. And since this expansion has very heavy far eastern influence, i'd say its warranted. The design is very accurate to what pictures of the Ki-rin are believed to look like. The only exception is that where the mount has 2 horns, it should only have 1. For those complaining about the spike in the front, look up ancient war-horse armor. That spkie was very common on armor for horses in ancient times. So do your research first. Blizz did great on this one.
Kinda Weird Looking But Love it And I Want It!
It's called a Chest Tit Spike. And just my personal opinion, the idiot that designed the flying goat should be stomped bloody. It's the fugliest flying mount I have ever seen, but then again, ALL of the weapons, and gear in MoP was designed by an idiot with not 1 shred of artistic talent, and detail. That's why I'm tmogging all of my stuff to Firelands looking gear. And you are also seeing MOST of the gamers tmogging their stuff to an earlier expansion's designs too. This MoP might be good and interesting, but the artwork on gear and weapons, SUCK A BIG ONE.
