More Account-Wide Mounts
Gold rains from the sky in Mists of Pandaria, or those Pandas have been running serious sweat shops to allow players to obtain stupid amounts of gold. This was the assumption when Blizzard revealed that one of the few types of mounts that would not be going account-wide in the new expansion would be the classic “gold sink” mounts. Players would have to get each of these mounts on every character.
At some point, someone checked the books and decided that something like this might encourage gold-buying, bot-running, or rampant mailbox dancing for spare change. In any case, Blizzard has adjusted their stance on these mounts:
We have been discussing this issue the last couple of days and we made the call to make the following mounts account-wide:
- Traveler’s Tundra Mammoth
- Grand Expedition Yak
- Mekgineer’s Chopper
- Sandstone Drake
- Grand Ice Mammoth
- Ice Mammoth
- Jeweled Onyx Panther (all color variants)
- Cloud Serpents (all color variants)
At this point, the only mounts that are not account-wide are either class specific or rewarded from PVP. We feel like both these types of mounts should still be character specific.
Thanks for your feedback on this issue!
Taurens and Worgens will now save money both on mounts, and on bikini waxing for their mailbox performances.
