Journeyman riding skill is available for purchase at level 30. If you have the Gold you can get the 100% mount speed from level 40. It’s not the skill holding you back in TBC, it’s the level requirement of the epic mount themselves. So this will still be a unique mount providing you access to 100% far earlier in the game if you have the Gold for the skill.
Can you please put in the post that mount speed training and mount cost were swapped in TBC, to where The mount is now 100g and the training is now the expensive part of getting a mount? Seems like a ton of people are misinformed about gold pricing of Mounts in TBC. Causing a bunch of negativity where it shouldn't be because people do not realize this fact and are complaining about "buying a mount worth 900g" when in reality mounts are 90g now.
Hello, i would like to win Wow. How much will I have to pay ?
I'm still really confused when it comes to the mount. The mount has been my only issue so far. I don't like changes to the original experience but I do understand that they would want to have some kind of monetization going on. The cost of running servers in 2021 is minuscule compared to 2007 and the amount of effort that has to be put into WoW: Classic looks to be minimal so one would imagine the subscription cost would be enough when it comes to monetization.But this is 2021 and not 2007. Each and every company has this ridiculous notion that they have to keep increasing profits like there is no tomorrow. The same goes for Activision-Blizzard so this is hardly surprising. They clearly underestimated WoW: Classic and hate themselves for not monetizing it any better.And I don't mind it all that much. I would prefer if it didn't happen and I really hate the idea of the boost, or this "Dark Portal Pass" as they are calling it. I would much rather have people actually play the game and level. It would make the levelling much more enjoyable for all of us not going for the boost. Sure I can see that someone who did not play Vanilla Classic would prefer to not have to level 1-58 to be capable of going through the Dark Portal. But I find it more important to ensure that the game has a healthy population levelling 1-58 instead of just giving players who didn't care for Vanilla one level 58 character "for free". By free I mean by in-game terms. Not free as in free of charge has you have to purchase the Dark Portal Pass. Luckily you can only boost a single character per account, and you can't boost the new races so we will still have some healthy levelling going on. But it would be way more people levelling if the boost didn't exist.One way they could easily solve all of this would be to offer a few fresh Burning Crusade Classic servers. Everyone who wants a fresh experience, a healthy levelling population and don't fancy the idea of a boost could simply join one of these new servers. It's such an easy and inexpensive fix. I can't fathom why Blizzard is refusing to do this. Sure we didn't have any fresh servers in the original Burning Crusade, but we didn't have Dark Portal Pass, Digital Deluxe Edition etc either. So why not offer fresh servers for those who might enjoy it?My biggest issue so far has been the mount. And I'm still really confused by it. Blizzard did tell us that it scales according to your riding skill. That's all fine and dandy. But according to tbc.wowhead.com, the journeyman riding skill is a level 10 spell (doesn't really matter as it's not purchasable at level 10) that can be purchased at level 30. I can't really remember how it was back in the day. And it was purchasable at level 30 back in the day no one would have any reason to purchase it at level 30 as all the 100% speed mounts themselves feature a level 60 requirement to be used. To me, it seems like back in the original Burning Crusade it was the level requirement set by the mount itself that prevented people from having access to 100% speed at level 30. If this is indeed the case and this digital deluxe edition mount only has level 40 requirement and will automatically scale with your riding skill you will be perfectly able to have it running around at 100% speed at level 40. This provides an obvious in-game advantage that is otherwise not obtainable within the game. This is my problem.I don't really mind the pricing of all these services, items and bundles. It sure is overpriced but I don't mind Blizzard making the whales bleed for cosmetic-only items and services that are not really necessary for the game. I find it stupid how people use such flawed logic as adding several overpriced pieces into a bundle, and give said bundle a slightly better price somehow makes the bundle not overpriced. But each to their own. I'm not going to purchase any of it regardless. But if this mount is going to provide in-game benefits then it becomes another topic entirely. One I can't stay behind at all.But at this point in time, it seems like no one really knows if this mount will work. Something I find really silly considering Blizzard is going to sell the Digital Deluxe Edition at any time now. They are basically selling a bundle with items we have no real clue how works within the game. And they haven't said anything regarding how the in-game items will work. Do we get them per character through in-game mail or will it be limited to a single character? And why does the mount seem to have a level 40 requirement? If it does scale according to your riding skill and you can't get journeyman riding until level 60 why wouldn't it require level 30 like every other 60% mount in the game?
P2w mount is gonna be hated on hard in-game.
How is this pay to win? This reeks of a streamer or someone on youtube told you what to think. But since you never have you just vomited this out.
This dude wiped in MC a lot and had to call people scrubs for not caring about a mount.
Surprise surprise contrary to what popular youtubers and streamers say it doesnt give you a significant advantage. Maybe they shouldnt base their outrage bait on datamined wowhead stuff and instead look at what's in the actual game.
Well how am I supposed to maintain my outrage if they keep making it harder!
the in game gold would only take an hour or 2 to make depending on how dedicated you are, its not really saving you much but a couple of hours and a walk to the vender. Not super sure what yall are upset about the only thing this affects is the person who gets it. they aren't going to 100-0 with this shiny new mount so stop crying you 5heads
