That Celestial Steed? Blizz certainly knew what they were doing with that one. It is seriously pretty, a sparkly Pegasus affair. A horse that flies.
If it were in game, I’d be grinding for it with everyone else. But it’s not. I’m not in a situation where I could fork out for it and not notice right now. That’s a month’s worth of game play to me.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not bitter. I’m actually impressed by Blizzard’s business stratagy. By the design of the mount. The lure of it. At the moment it’s the Big Thing. They’re all over the place. You can’t turn around without seeing one. And just for a moment I feel like the kid with the plastic NHS glasses, and a bad haircut again….watching the in crowd, always from the edge.
But then, even if I did have the money spare, would I purchase one? No, I don’t think so. I’m not a fan of RMT. I can appreciate that RMT can make a good present for someone, indeed one of my friends’ has had one bought for her by her husband, and I can’t fault that at all. It makes her feel happy, it makes him feel happy. All’s well and good. I’m certainly not going to call anyone a retard or a dick for doing it. It’s their money. Nor am I going to even judge people by the fact that they have one. It’s very pretty. I don’t blame them for purchasing it.
But me? I think I’ll stick with the mounts that show I’ve put in some time and effort in game. Or the ones Lady RNG has kindly granted me. Hmm, is it time to sacrifice another paladin yet? My Oracle egg’s about to hatch…..
