This mount appears to have begun its existence as a Chinese only giveaway. Now, I can buy it on the Blizzard.net Store.
Except I won’t.
I knew this point would come, and I think this is probably the beginning of the end. I don’t need this. I don’t think it’s worth the £19 asking price. If the future is as I suspect, a procession of vanity items to separate me from my cash, I’m done. I made it to 300 mounts and frankly, the desire to keep pushing myself into more and more purchases which have no discernable effect on my happiness is largely pointless. I need to spend the money on things that do make me happy. Microtransactions like this won’t work.
It is time to let other people enjoy the stuff they like and move on.
