Blizzard to Sell a New Flying Mount
 

Looking for a chance to spend more money? The Warcraft Facebook Page has an image of a new flying mount. The caption says: "Coming soon to the Blizzard Store."

Start? I'm surprised it took them this long to add another one...

Someone remind evil to take his Alzheimer's medication. They've been selling flying mounts well over a year.

Fixed the title because Lockwoodx beat me to the punch.

I guess Blizzard want to make millions of dollars off of another vanity mount.

Couldnt they just sell a sign that says "More money then sense"?

If they wanted it to be grammatically wrong.

Shouldn't you just wear a sign that says "Whiny cunt that would like to go through life with no ability to make a choice whatsoever."

Flying mounts ruined PvP. Now get off my lawn.

Maybe even a bumper sticker on the mounts that says that.

Neither do I anymore but just like Kevin Bacon, we are all tied to WoW in 6 different ways.

It truly is amazing how so many people just can't understand this concept.

Of course if you think something that will probably cost $25 is considered as having "more money than sense" you should probably quit gaming altogether. Maybe go & try to find some gainful employment that takes a bit more sense & skill than just knowing how to successfully turn on a cooking fryer or sucking someone's cock.

I really have to agree with this sentiment.

If people want to spent $25 on vanity mounts...let them!
As an avid TF2 player, I hear pissing and moaning about the ability to buy items, both cosmetic and game-effecting, every single day. The crap Blizzard sells is of even less consequence than some of the hats Valve peddles; if someone wants to buy one of these flying mounts, mounts that still require in-game effort to be able to use, let them. With the current speed-scaling system, these vanity mounts can only go as fast as your current flight training level allows...so, it's not even like you're buying the ability to travel faster.

Hell, I almost bought my dad the Celestial Horse for Christmas this past year; he's pretty big into WoW right now and literally has too much crap kicking around. Despite the fact I changed my mind, I knew he'd use that mount most of the time and it'd be something he'd enjoy without having to clutter up my parent's house.

Just be happy Blizzard isn't trying to sell useful, game-effecting things. This vanity crap is perfectly fine with me.

They do and they should. If people want to pay for vanity items in an MMO, then a company should offer them this choice. As long as the purchases are only for vanity items, I have no problem with it.

They should make some sort of giant hummingbird or insect mount.

Weren't you the one that started the whole Cataclysm thread by saying you were playing and asking anyone else if they were as well?
