World of Warcraft: "Wheee! Zoom! Kinda."
Posted: Friday July 18th, 2008 by

A few days ago now, Blizzard release patch 2.4.3 for World of Warcraft which introduced, among other things, Level 30 Mounts. Training is 35 gold; the mount is 10 gold or less depending on faction.

Apparently 30 is the new 40. Because the mount thing is just a shift in levels. Meaning... level 40 mounts are now available at level 30. Now, I know there's a certain amount of interest on Blizzards part to make early levels more accessible for the couple hundred people not already playing WoW and to make alt-leveling easier to keep existing subscribers coming back for more. But, did the level of your first mount need to be trivialized more? I mean, I suck at leveling alts but even I can sneeze and hit level 30.

Okay okay, I'll admit complaining about this is completely unfair. I logged in as soon as I heard about the patch the other day and bounced my 30 something Druid alt over to Bloodhoof Village to pick my mount up. It's currently 20% faster than my Travel Form, how can I resist?

I'm not actually grumpy about the change at all. But what kind of satirist would I be if I didn't mock? Huh? A bad one. A BAD one I tell you! Like freakin' Johnathan Swift or those guys at the Onion. Ughhh.
