Of course, that doesn’t include the Trading Card Game loot card mounts, but there was never any real likelihood that that was where the Swift Windsteed would end up. Now, though, Blizzard has surprised us all by putting the Swift Windsteed in the Battle.net pet store.
And this is where the big question comes in: would you really pay $25 for that?! It’s far from a thing of beauty, of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but the Swift Windsteed pretty much looks like a goat with a moustache, and dragon legs, floating on a cloud. I’m not sure I’d pay $25 for it, but I have already seen several players riding the floaty goat around Azeroth and Pandaria.
In all fairness it’s not as bad as the SWTOR christmas mount that cost $18, at least the Swift Windsteed is given to every character on a player’s account, rather than just to one character like the christmas mount. What do you think? Does the new Swift Windsteed do it for you? Or do you agree with me that it’s not a thing of great beauty? Like I mentioned, everyone’s different, and there are at least a few people who have already shelled out for the floaty goat.
Will you pay $25 for this mount?
