All the phoenix-like mounts look so good. It makes me wish I had cared more back when MoP was current for the challenge modes.
Will you do the Quillen pre-view too? The island one is impossible to get and MOP CE is no longer for sale. I'm really heartbroken with the island one being gated behind mountains of RNG, but 8.3 introduces 2 more, are they less RNG to obtain?
Is it just me not being able to find them or are there no mounts for Uldum yet?
Raven on steroidsNot a fan of flying mounts who don't have a ground stand animation.
This version looks much better than the original Pandaria one. I love it!Perfect for NE
I like this color palette - a perfect fit to the Black Empire style. The mount itself still shows its origins from Pandaria which is good as well.
eh, it's just Ji'kun in black.I wish they'd put the MoP challenge mode phoenixes back in the game, but I guess that'd be too much to ask because then the people who bought/had friends to do challenge mode runs will whine.
Please don’t let this be another Rustfeather/Arachnoid Harvester or worse, Soundless style of drop.
great another mount that doesn't walk... can we just stop with the mounts that can't use their feet? they get stuck on everything and are too frustrating to use
If that's the case, bring back WoD CM weapons and Mage Tower. I've busted my ass to get 6 MoP CM sets and the phoenixes but if you're bringing them back, bring everything back.
Lol MOP Phoenixes weren't quite as difficult to obtain as a gladiator mount but they (and the CM armor sets) were totally designed as rewards for playing when the expansion was live and completing those specific challenges. Truth is, they weren't difficult. Neither were the WOD CMs. If you were a below average player determined to get them you could have. Tl;Dr these sort of items (Challenge mode mogs and Mage Tower artifact appearances) should remain locked to the expansion they were intended to be rewards for. Because the challenge in getting them also was removed due to inevitable gameplay changes.However as others said, this mount is not the same model as an MOP Phoenix, it is the same as Clutch of Ji Kun, which drops from the Throne of Thunder raid. Models =/= SkeletonNow where Blizzard goofed was making legendary items from MOP and WOD unobtainable. That was just flat out stupid. It made it impossible to learn the full story of the game (by playing said game) for those late to visit those expansions, and for no real good reason. It was a totally unprecedented move to do that and they should revert those decisions IMHO.
