    MASSIVE Mount changes forth-comming

    Post by Tanis on Wed Jun 17, 2009 4:37 pm

    A very big announcement this evening from Zarhym. In the "next major content patch" (which means Patch 3.2) the mount system in WoW will be having some significant changes to it. The highlights are as follows:

    Regular land mounts trainable at level 20 (was 30)

    Epic land mounts trainable at level 40 (was 60)

    Regular flying mounts trainable at level 60 (was 70)

    Regular flying mounts speed increased to a 150% gain (was 60%)

    The costs for all the training and mount purchases has been decreased outright, with the exception of the artisan riding skill (epic flying mounts). For all mount costs, faction discounts now apply.

    This means that when you hit 60 you'll be able to fly around Hellfire and finish all those quests. Leveling from 60 to 68 is going to become easier and more relaxed. You'll hit Northrend much sooner with this change.

    The full details after the break.

    makes sense, by the time I had enough money to buy a flying mount in the Outlands it was time for me to leave and go to Northrend where I couldnt even use my new mount.
