I'd allow a night elf to ride it too.

Nah. All the wild beasts are theirs to ride, like jungle bats.

I wonder what happened to that awesome troll skin for the PotM. I can't find it anywhere.

They've put a surprising amount of effort into the Thousand Boat Bash compared to the other "micro-holidays." There are familiar characters, world quests, little mini games like beach ball, and it looks like almost every race gets a unique boat model.

I had forgotten all about that with the mounts yesterday! Is it still up today?

It lasts for a week, probably because there's more to do than the other ones.

Yeah, the unique boat models are really neat and it's been so long since I've seen a Tuskarr turtle boat that I've forgotten how cool they looked.

I like how High Elves have their own boats

It's his summer residence.


On unrelated stuff: I liked the rogue class mount quest. I'm always down for some good assassinations and I liked how you have to plan it since there's always a bit of a twist to the marks. That damn dwarf in Ironforge even forced me to switch to Sub for some shadow dmg burst.

On the other hand, this is the third time in this expansion that my order had me infiltrate Stormwind because of some hidden Legion agent. It's getting old...
The SI:7 really need to step up their game.

Guess you could say they have a lot of ROGUE agents.

How many people who play for story are gonna be Mythic raiders, though?

Therein is my point. Putting critical story elements in mythic only phases is and has always been fucking dumb.

I think we can say that at least anecdotally, there are a non-trivial number of mythic-class raiders who ARE interested in the story, just as there are a non-trivial number who are NOT interested in the story.

At the end of the day, consider that notion that mythic-only phases that offer additional story are there as a reward for players who wouldn't normally consider mythic in their wheelhouse but aspire to experience it firsthand. Offering them an exclusive phase is a cool reward for playing the game at the highest level.

Remember that the goal of the game is not to tell a story, but to deliver a great game. The story is a component of the reward structure of the game, but it's not the OBJECTIVE of the game as a whole. Good gameplay and cool moments are the objective of the game.

Conversely, its poor design to limit something people ARE interested in behind something they arent. Especially when it isnt something trivial, but an entire shift in play type.

Blizz continues to think they can fool people into liking parts of the game they don't already want to do by gating their stuff behind it.

Kinda like the way they try to sneak PvP in where it doesn't belong and somehow "trick" us into discovering that we enjoy it when assholes prevent us from playing the game.

You guys think we are going to see Suramar in a future expansion? Oculeth seemed interested in Khadgar's ability to teleport an entire city, and moving Dalaran for a third expansion would be overkill, it would be nice to have options.

Having to wait for an invasion in order to unlock the warlock mounts was slightly annoying, but I got two mounts out of it instead of just one.

Now I just need lots of AP to unlock the third.

Okay, the final quest for the DK quest mount is a homage to the wotlk cinematic trailer xD
You stand and do the same things Arthas did when he ressurrected Sindy

Also, Unholy Determination is still in.
