So there’s some interesting news today if you’re thinking about doing, or are currently participating in, a Recruit-a-Friend program in World of Warcraft.
An email from Blizzard recently went out reminding people with unclaimed X-53 Touring Rocket mounts that they have until the 17th of July 2012 to claim their rocket before it becomes unavailable.
Replacing it will be the Heart of Nightwing, which will allow you to turn into the Obsidian Nightwing. That’s right, you get to turn into a flying black panther mount. It functions just like the Vial of the Sands, allowing someone to mount you if you’re in a group with them.
So you still get to have an awesome passenger mount, it’s just that you are the mount.
If you have a rocket mount pending and you would like the new mount, you must leave it unclaimed in order to collect the new mount. Your rocket will magically turn into a flying kitty after the 17th of July.
Head on over to MMO-Champion to check out the awesome video they have.
We think it looks pretty cool, what about you guys? Sad to see the rocket go, or happy to be a thundercat? Let us know!
