Seems they forgot to delete one 0 in those mount prices. Ridiculous
90k? Honestly I try not to add negativity in discussions but that is simply too much. I like the reskins, but they were not worth 50k, and 90k is just shameless.
Players: 50k for re-skins? Are you serious?Blizzard: How about 90k?
I try to stay positive, but man that cost increase to all those mounts is a gut punch. I clicked on this article going "oh good, let's see what the more reasonable updated prices on those mounts is!", and then I had to squint and lean in to squint at my screen reeeeeeeeeal close to double check that I was seeing the correct number of zeroes. The thing that perplexes me -- in Draenor or Legion, an average player/mount collector would have an OK chance of making enough gold in a reasonable amount of time to buy all of those. In BfA, gold making from the more casual sources has slowed to a dead crawl. I'm an amateur gold making enthusiast, and I haven't even gotten enough yet to get all the frogs, never mind the brutosaur, the expensive direhorn, and some of the other total gold-sink mounts. One or two desperately expensive mounts makes sense for trying to reduce the amount of gold in the game, but putting out mount after mount that is over 50K and 100K results in a great deal of the player population just never being able to buy them. I understand manufacturing scarcity for mounts -- it adds perceived value and makes players feel like they have something special. Falling back on forcing that scarcity through a simple paywall (whether it be gold or irl money) is just...disappointing. It lacks creativity, and it just looks really greedy and lazy from my end.
With gold being a lot harder to come by for non-gold farmers I am dismayed by the price. There go all my savings toward the brutosaur. Sigh.
I dont know whats the point blizz makes the mount's price higher each patches & expansions
People complaining about the mount prices ------ Don't buy them? They are there just for a gold sink in order to keep inflation down, if you don't think they're worth don't buy them! Come back in a year or 3 when you have excess gold and buy them then.
Just what the game needed, more reskinned gryphons. And overpriced to boot.
Even though Im a mount collector... 90k its extremely excessive for a reskin. Blizzard can keep its reskins and shove them... Back into the assets folder.
Players: LOL 50kg for a recolored mount that we have had for years. No, thanks Blizzard.Blizzard: Ok, we'll make them 90kg.
50k was stretching, especially considering how many gold sinks already exist this expansion.90k has to be a typo.I was actually excited for these pterrodaxes and gryphons when we first saw them. Some of the colors look nice, but these prices are out of hand.
Alliance: 3 horses (10k each) 3 gryphons (90k each, old MoP model) - 0 new modelsHorde: 1 blood beast (flying, 10k), 4 pterodax (flying, 10k and 3x90k), hyena (10k) - 3 new modelsWhy not:Alliance: 1 horse, 1 blue parrot, 1 drust mount (Dont tell me that drust are bad, evil. Blood beast are also bad and evil and horde ride on it. In game u have good drust puppy, and u can make drust pett battle, so why not mount?) and in 8.2 some albatross, parot and gryphon?We alliance get 5 reskins of horses - 3 rep, 1 pre exp, 1 kul'tiran. And we can farm 2 donkeys (arathi, world) and 2 horses (1 arathi, 1 world). Its boring.Tortollan glyph for druid - doplhin. Why not a turttle? Boring.And its ok for u Horde players, im happy that u get fine, nice looking mounts. Its ok. But why we dont get it? :DAnd costs of this mount... Ech... Disproportion from other expansions is too big. In bfa we have long boi 5mln, 2 500k (dino and machine in 8.2) 3x333333 (frogs) and now 3x90k. O_o' Im casual player, i can farm 100k per month.But still i love u Blizzard, even if its hard, and painfull love :D
Exalted Reputation should reward itself and not be just a new possibility for a gold sink.I don't want to farm gold to get mounts I earned through reps, seriously.
What's with all the money-sink mounts in this expac? The inflation from WoD and Legion is long over, it's time to stop bleeding the playerbase dry.
lmao watch them drop them to 70k as a 'compromise' later on.
