Good to see Blizzard keeping up with current scientific theories that dinosaurs were brightly coloured and had feathers. Now if these mounts quack they are all up to speed with cutting edge paleontology.
That looks pretty fun! Might be one of my most-anticipated parts of the patch.
Blizz seems to be really trying hard to keep it's players engaged in the world
Ugh, I don't want to have to petbattle for mounts...
I dont like being forced to pet battle for a mount :l
but can hunters tame them?
So I have to do 12 PvP WQs, blegh. I wonder if you could get around them with the WQ completion things. Probably not. That would take too long anyway.Ah well, four new pets are worth it. I can get the +25 stones later on.Speaking of, whatever happened to the +3 and +5 stones? Were those testing stones only?
+5 Stones are from World Quests
Thankfully the PvP World Quests are mostly PvE content, because I would never be able to do them otherwise. I can't fight people who are CLEARLY in front of me, but the game claims are not in front. I hate Cox Cable's fiber optics internet, but it's so cheap.Some of the requirements are kind of stupid, such as having the Falcosaur pet as the primary while using two specific pets of a family. That's Dark Souls levels of artificial difficulty. I mean, almost all of my pets are level 25 and Rare, but it's still a dumb requirement. The Falcosaurs are absolutely ugly, but I want them BECAUSE they're ugly. I'm a fan of the feathered dinos, even if these are sub par designs. The really important issue at hand though; Hunters NEED to be able to tame these. We got shafted with Unicorns and Owlcats, so please don't let these be a Shaman Ghost Wolf glyph appearance or something stupid.
All I want is the mountscould care less about "gotta catch them all" in wow.
i'm glad there is content to do in order to get something cool at the end and in generell to do anything of course too.Keep on Blizz and thanks, Quintessence
I hope #13 (the raid part) is also for LFR mode. Anyone has more info about this?
For those complaining about the "PvP" World quests you need to do to get these and possibly, not confirmed yet, to get the corresponding mounts too, the only PvP world quests I actually run into other players are the arena world quests. If you just do the tower assault quests it'll feel just as PvE as ever, so yeah, no reason to complain on that one. And yes, I'm guessing the raid will include LFR difficulty, because this is from a solo adventurer questline that a normal+ raid requirement would feel very out of place. If they required mythic dungeons earlier in the questline then I would think lfr would be out. In any case really hoping that the questline gets us the mounts too, take me back to when I got my winterspring mount. As far as pet battling for a mount, it's about time pet battling got me a mount, heck, the toybox got me a mount before pet battles ever did. There are plenty of niche mounts that take time and effort, and if you have good friends you could always borrow some pets to help you complete the questline to get the mounts, or a buy a few cheap level 25 pets off the AH. It's not that difficult.
No one is forcing anyone to do anything they don't want to. You don't want to pet battle or PvP? Don't. do. it. Profit. If you want something, be it a mount or a cool transmog or better gear, whatever, be ready to get through what it takes to receive it... or don't. There is only that much you'll miss out on and in most cases in couple of patches or next expack it would be a thing you could faceroll through. But no one is forcing you to do it. Your subscription won't magically disappear if you don't pet battle/PvP, your character won't be locked inside Class Order Hall with no way out nor will your Artifact crumble to dust. I could see the complaint if it was Class Order Hall / Artifact progression questchain locked behind PvP (and not PvP WQs which are more of a PvPvE, but actual PvP, like in legendary quest chain for cloak in Pandaria), but related to a mount that doesn't have higher running speed that other easily gotten mounts nor would progress your character in un-imagineable ways to give you an advantage... It's silly.
