Don't worry, sparky. Mommy still thinks yer special!
I would love to weigh in on this subject. I do not care so much about the old (cool) zhevra mount. I always wanted the 2 man rocket mount. I tried SEVERAL times to get it but all my RAF attempts back then failed. I now have more than 1 dragon but would gladly trade them for the rocket.I am sad that I missed my chance to get that rocket and did not attempt to do a RAF for a long time after it went away because I wanted that ONE single mount for my warlock engineer.Now, I might have a chance to get it finally! This is a good thing and I would rather select additional pets than additional mounts for later RAF options. If this is the way things will work, I will definitely step up my efforts to bring in more WOW players!
I have the zhevra and the rocket...and I could care less if other people got them now. In fact, I am glad for it, because they're great mounts and people deserve to have them too. That being said...What actually annoys me about this is the 'let's make it unavailable despite who it irks...oh wait, let's turn around and bring it back'. I would like to see them make ZG40 available again because I would like to resume trying every bloody week for my effing tiger like I currently am for my effing phoenix.
i have the rocket and it s exclusive for me as it is rare to see players with it nowadays, i wouldnt mind bring it back unless they bring back ZG40 so i can have chance to loot the Swift Zulian Tiger or Razzashi raptor. I was around and i soloed that raid a couple of times but i wasnt motivated like now because it weren't accound wide mounts so i thought it wasn't worth the effort.
I like the idea even though I have both the rocket and Zhevra. Blizz needs to at least change to color to keep the original as a status symbol and give the vets a chance to do it all again.
I have the rocket and zhevra also. I am unable to verify but, i think I have an unclaimed reward to. Is it said for sure it will still be there when they open it back up. I also hope they change to Scroll of resurrection one as well, I have an unclaimed one of that to..
I was thinking I'd want one of the pigs then I realized they just use the same movesets as Mr. Wiggles.Oh well...
well since i am a player since vanilla i am glad i would have a change -again- to obtain old pets/mounts, i grinded rep and exp to be in the range to raid or fight for the mob and i usually lost it, either a bad roll (usually i got a 1 -_- ) or the guy that had made the raid was master looter and stole the loot claiming <insert excuse here> this has repeated for years and sadly.. even when i tried again and again my luck was the same.. none... pets / mounts became unavailable even when i had them right on the table (loot) in front of me. as for the "special" of been unique.. well there should be an achieve that proves that you earned it on that event, 10-man raiding -time and date- earned by XXXXXX that can't be gotten on pet store or the BM. i got my own rewards for having the paladin, warlock and druid special mount quests, i don't care if the spells are now instant when you reach the level, i have my proof i was there and i got them, sadly i can't share this "glory" with my friends of helping them in the quest, but they can get the same now with less effort and enjoy the same
it just dos not help that they are redoing this stuff if you cant youse it in EU
Pets looks not good.
I never knew what I missed when I got to WoW, when I realized that I felt really bad because no matter how hard I try, I would never get the 100% of this game and this demotivated me. Now it is possible to balance things! Makes me want to try and try harder to get EVERYTHING.It's not fair that, being among the first players, they have greater privileges, achievements, armors, mounts, etc. If I had noticed about WoW since 2004 I would loved the idea of playing from the very being to be part of the adventure. Thank you for this opportunity, Blizzard, and thank you, haters, for noticing the horror of not being "special" at all.
The only reason i hope they add back those old RAF, is because the Zhewra Mount is on my other Account that im not playing on anymore.All others Raf is on my main Acc.(And i can't merge them together because when i made the other acc i could not use same name,so had to take a random name,sadly :/)
I do not see anything wrong with bringing back retired mounts, everyone pays the same $15 a month so why not let everyone have access to the same content, I'm a collector and I wouldn't mind having a crack at some older items, the elitists will obviously get access to new content faster than others, and by the time the casual raider gets it the original proprietors will already have the newest mounts.
I have the older RaF mounts but I'm really happy that people will have a chance to get them again. Not everyone was around or able to get them at the time and some would really love them.I like the philosophy that some things are very hard to get to begin with, but then get easier over time, usually as players get more gear. That way if you're on the bleeding edge, you get to show off your rare achievement for a time. But if you want to continue to do that then you have to keep working on the next special thing. If you don't want to keep working, but still look special, then I'm really not sympathetic to Blizzard keeping things retired just to humour you. You are in a vanishingly small minority and you are collectively worth very little to the game or the active player base.Plus, as someone else highlighted, rare mounts aren't necessarily a mark of achievement. They're a mark of being in the right guild at the right time AND luck. The majority of players who worked every bit as hard when the mounts were originally available still never got one.
Yeah, that'd be awesome. I brought 4 of my friends to WoW and I didn't receive my bonuses and perks just because I am from Romania, a country not supported by Blizzard's RAF system...
I hope they don't bring the zhevra back. The mount itself is pretty ugly if you ask me, but I still use it just because of the status of having it ;)Would be no point in using it if everyone has it.
