Hard mode mounts for Return to Kara (Legion) and Mechagon (BfA) were both unique models which made them highly sought after. Using the same disc model 4 times for the same dungeon, including its hard mode, is extremely lazy to the point of not even giving a flying fug about the hard mode.One less thing to care about in 9.1. Thanks Blizz for freeing up some time for me.
My opinion is that I wish Blizzard went back to TBC a little more. Where grinding a rep to exalted netted you like 5-6 mounts. All the same model, but different colors. This WoD-like design where you make one mount model and spread all colors of it over different activities (rare drops, reputation, currency farm, meta achievements, etc.) to keep people on the treadmill is a bit tiring.
oh look 4 more reskins to farm how fun they keep this up and im done farming mounts once i hit 500 i cant take farming the same reskins anymore farming 1 or 2 reskin sure 4 or 5 nah
I will say they all look exactly the same, even out of risk of being flagged for racism.
Damn i was hoping for the pirate dragon with the captain hat to drop mount with same look. This is just boring.
Clearly it's less work to slap on some different colors on a model than come up with yet another unique toy, title or model..
Okay, let me lay down the facts here:Recolors are not the problem. It's the way they are distributed.It used to be that hitting exalted for a single reputation-- ONE accomplishment-- would give you not only a new mount model, but 4+ colors of it. Different achievements would give you totally different mounts. You're exalted with Kurenai? Here's 4 colors each of two varieties of Talbuk. You're exalted with Sha'tari Skyguard? Here's five varieties of nether ray. You killed Kael'thas? Here's a phoenix. You found the Time-Lost Proto-Drake? Here's a proto-drake. Etc.Now it's this:You're exalted with the Proudmoore Admirality? Here's ONE horse. You got a rare drop in Drustvar? Here's ANOTHER horse. You killed a rare in Arathi Highlands? HORSE! Exalted with Stormsong? HORSE! Got a rare drop in Stormsong? HORSE! Realistically, we should have gotten several horses from PA, and different models from the other achievements (hippocampus from Stormsong, Wicker hounds from Drustvar drops, etc). But that couldn't happen because store mounts and zandalar were more important. That's what made the copy/pastes bad. Not the fact that they exist, but the fact that they're posed as separate rewards.Getting two undead dragons from ICC was okay because they are similar achievements. Likewise, if all of these discs come from Tazavesh, it would be okay to me.And yall keep forgetting that the dearth of mounts in Shadowlands is mostly artificial. You're feeling the mount collecting squeeze not because Blizzard isn't making unique mounts, but because for no goddamned reason Blizzard has made it so you're only allowed to collect 1/4th of them on a given character due to covenant restrictions.
Disc mount = Best mount
So a reworking of the discs in the game already. Not that terribly impressed.
Why not another horse?
Blizz in Shadowlands: Hey can I copy off you?Blizz in Legion making Mage Order Hall Mount: Sure, but change it up so it's not obvious.And then we got this. Sewer Lid Reforged
