No one is advocating for less content. Cause let's be frank, mounts aren't really content. They are rewards for doing a particular challenge. You still are going to have to farm days upon days of the same area. Instead of recolouring, how about we have hairstyles, emotes, housing furniture, etc., or those cosmetics we were promised. Mounts are inflated because the true open-world content is scarce, and they don't want to invest in something they don't have. That will put them behind in the long run. If your trying to get players, the real question you should be asking is, why World of Warcraft? Why not FF14? If they can't keep up with a less well funded and staffed competitor because they don't want to redirect development resources from recolours, then we have a problem.
Personally I like this mount and that it's not going to eat up a bunch of my time waiting for a rare with a low drop rate.
I really appreciate low-effort mounts that are easy to add to my collection for when I just don't have the extra time to go wait on a rare or farm a raid for the billionth time for little reward and a nasty .1% drop rate. I don't mind padding my mount collection number to get me to the next impossible-feeling reward tier.
