New Mount

looks like there is a new mount at the blizzard store today.

Swift Windsteed


the usual $25 for it.

O.O


oh yes.

yes.

yes please.

Looks neat, but it will be on my "wait for the sale" list.

Bought it already...OH yeah...mount collector here!

* Pterodactyl screech*

I want one SO bad but I have to wait until February.

Ahhh.

Haha I'm so glad I don't like it. This one can wait for a while

Bought it. Flying goat ftw.

I'll be getting it soon, I think lol.

Bought it this morning. Runs a bit awkwardly but it's cute.

If anyone is watching progress on a mount collection achieve like me - the count took like an hour to increase. I initially got a bit miffed thinking maybe they'd made store mounts not count or something.

I think it has the yak run animation, which is kind of odd- talbuk or horse would have been more fitting. I do like the flying run, though.

The ground run bugs me too, but I can live with it because the cloud run is nice.

I have no idea what's going on with it's face.

I kind of love it, but I just can't justify paying extra money for mounts and pets for myself unless at least part of the profits go to some cause.

If it were a flying Yak I might have to give in though.

If it were a flying Yak I would have bought it instantly LOL

I think I'm one of the only people who doesn't like this mount. O__o

No, the consensus in my guild is that it looks like a reindeer on some kind of drug.

It's a kirin. I think the scaled body mixed with mane/fur is kind of neat. I do not like the armor though, the big spiked breastplate is meh and I don't like the helm with the decorations curling up almost over the eyes. I wish we could have an unarmored one.

I just googled what you're talking about and yeah without all the extra they added it would have been nicer lol.

I don't care for it either. I am a mount and pet collector, but I don't like this one enough to pay $25 for it. Actually, I haven't liked any of the blizzard store mounts enough to pay for them.

I think it looks horrible. I'd take it if it were free, but I wouldn't pay a dollar for it.

I didn't like it until I read that it was a Kirin. That explains the perceived "mish-mash of seemingly random crap" and makes it suddenly like, "Okay, I see where you're coming from now, and it's rather cool."

However, I really wish they'd offered the brown, gold, and red skins as well...the red one is my absolute favorite fur color but I also love the olive colored armor for the brown fur. The one that's for sale is the only one I can do without. :p

It looks like a Qilin(Kirrin in Japanese) which is the Chinese equivalent of the unicorn.

I had to get it! I love Kirins (in any form of spelling XD) and was so excited when I saw the first teaser of this mount. I agree that the run is a bit wonky, but the flying animation is good, and the idle animations are probably my favorite of any mount. They're simple, but so good! Now he just needs a name! :D

I like it too! I think kirin/qilin are nifty creatures. Alas, my male troll is kind of big on it, with his legs hanging way down its sides. Your human looks like she fits better on it.

Given all the 12 Kingdoms icons I spy, I should think it's a pretty clear answer when it comes to names. ;3

Pfffft well yeah but WHICH ONE? XD

I'd definitely say it depends on the personality of the mount. I admit if/when/inevitably I make my purchase I'll probably lean towards Enki...Because the critter looks like an Enki. Kind of snarky, very spirited, etc.

The /mountspecial is rather nice though!!!!

I got it as either my cheer me up after not getting the job I interviewed for, or the celebration for the job I interviewed for.:) So win win!


I suspect in the "We don't know what this creature is" meme, my guild had decided they didn't like it. I took one look, went OMG KIRIN and went running in search of my credit card. I might or might not have a whole family of kirin M. Pena figures on my bookshelves downstairs :-)

FWIW, I too could do without the armor.

I have one! OMG!!! IT DOES A BELF TWIRL with /mountspecial. AMG. SO PRECIOUS. MINE.

BLIZZARD REMINDS ME OF GEORGE LUCAS WITH ALL THESE EXTRA COLLECTIBLES.
