I like this whole idea. Raising mounts is always cool and one of my favorite ways of acquiring a mount.But can they please consider changing the armor and saddle on this mount in particular?To explain what I mean, look closely at the harness. Four of its eyes are gouged into with spikes for the head armor, with blood seeping out, and for the saddle, the same idea, spikes hammered into its shell, also drawing blood.I don't mind this for the other mounts it shares its model with, since those are a rare drop from an enemy mob and a vendor bought mount that was probably subjugated. But this one is supposed to be one you raise as a larva, treat, feed and help grow.For most people it won't matter since they won't realize it, I guess, but it feels irksome that your character would kindly something to an adult state, taking care of it, then finish it off by hammering nails into its body and even its eyes. For me, it's just a 'cannot be unseen' type of thing.
Imagine two siblings, Harold and Allen. Leading up to Christmas, their parents keep talking about how they're going to buy a Switch. So Harold and Allen get excited and make sure to keep their rooms clean and do their other chores.When Christmas morning rolls around, Harold opens his presents and it's two Discworld novels. Hey, Discworld novels are fine and all, but he already has many books in the series. Also, one of them is from the witches subseries, and something about those books has never gelled with him. Maybe he finds Nanny Ogg annoying, maybe he'd just rather be reading about Vimes and the Night Watch, he's never quite been able to put his finger on it.Then Allen opens up his present, and it's the Switch (and since a console is useless without games, let's say it's one with Super Mario Odyssey preinstalled).Then the parents come around and tell Harold he has to share the two books with Allen, while Allen gets the Switch all to himself.Then whenever Harold asks "Excuse me?" everyone tells him "You got TWO presents, stop being entitled!"I admit this analogy isn't 100% perfect (Harold could save up his allowance and buy his own Switch while Horde players can do nothing about the bee, the siblings aren't the same person with multiple personality disorder who could just switch to the Allen personality to play the Switch) and maybe Allen's parents did in a misguided attempt to make up for giving him nothing but horse figurines for his birthday. But I like to believe it illustrates why Horde players are irritated about the bee (also, I am not saying the Aqir should be Horde exclusive).I can't speak for everyone, but what personally angered me most about the bee was the way Blizzard was teasing it before BfA launched, teased it again in that presentation where it was advertised alongside BfA flying... then BOOM Alliance locked, pulling the rug out from under Horde players.
So perhaps I missed it, but I didn't see it mentioned which faction(s) would have access to this mount...Is it not yet known? Even if it's still to be revealed, I feel like the article should mention this, it's probably the foremost question on most peoples' minds.
So that's why the Grinning Reaver was taken off the store...
when does the aqir invasion begin?
I didnt see it said by anyone else but the cords in the guide are wrong. They are backwards the location is 20,61
Your coordinates 61 20 are backwards. I went to the wrong spot. Should be 20 61
Was it ever datamined/determined how many days you had remaining once you started making the saddle? I couldn't find anything with my searches...
For people who wonder, it's approximately 20,61 - completely across the zone from where the article has it located.
You start the quest at 20,61 NOT 61,20, the guide has the location coordinates transposed.
