What about people with
This is everything I didn't want in a mount and yet somehow I've discovered that I wanted it all along.
I have wanted and waited for a spider mount for many years and finally it shall come!
So far on the videos etc it looks good with a nice design. I like the model of the sadle. Fancy but still a bit simple. The animation seem to be good also so that makes it even better.
Now the question is where we will get it. But no matter what I need to have it!
The first spider mount to be released in WoW.
of begging, and we got it.
I'm proud of you, team.
The thought of this mount gives me chills up my spine and terrifies me a little........ still need though.... I think... *shudders*
Ironically, even though it's called Bloodfang Cocoon I think it matches the
set much more than the
But who cares, we're finally getting a spider !
But can it walk up walls?
? SOLD. Halloween cometh early!
(so excited to mount up on my battle bat and battle spider! )
I just imagine this mount climbing up vertical walls and hills, hanging from the ceiling, catching bugs left and right and blinding/slowing people with cobweb etc. So many possibilities.
For sure setting out to get this one. My wife plays as much as I do and she is terrified of anything spider. She will go into shakes. But she is a mount collector. Will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
That 'sprint' and 'mount' animation... I'm not even really scared of them, but I felt chills up my spine
Just love it, Its formidable :)
For those who have a fear of spiders...can ride their fear :P
can blizz make this mount so when you run off a cliff/ edge it duos a web thing and slows your down fall?
have all my nope blizz this thing is a pure nightmare
This is going to be a store mount, calling it now
imho flying boars would be better
for some reason I keep misreading the name as
Does whatever a spider mount does!
Can it swing from a web?
No it can't
It's a mount
It's the spider mount!
hell...yes....I have been wanting a spider mount for so @#$%ing long now. I actually had hoped it was going to be the Worgen racial mount.
Digging the trend of invertebrate mounts, looking forward to some future worm, crab, and centipedes!

Blizzard has discussed their rationale behind this merchant through a number of blue posts. Wowhead has summarized them
Where can I find
can be found in The Wonderworks Toy Shop in Dalaran. He is on a
spawn timer, reportedly as short as 4 hours, and as long as a few days! Once someone purchases from him (after he has spawned), he will stick around for roughly 1-2 hours before despawning again.
As such, it's a courteous move to announce in trade when he spawns!
100,000g is hilariously expensive for a mount without any special thing. No vendors, no transmog guy, no nothing? I hope this price comes down prior to live version.
Im just glad its not another store mount!
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY GOLD!
I checked the 3D model and clicked "mount". Then... <WTF>?
Price is now up to 2.000.000g
for those people with Arachnophobia dont worry, in pvp facing an enemy player with this mount will not trig...*Looks at its running jump animation*
nevermind, you gonna freak the hell out.
It's too bad this will probably stay at a price of 2 million gold. While it's fine to have expensive mounts, I feel making it so very expensive usually kills any drive to get it. Here are some examples of expensive mount cost with current wowhead listed attainment rate
(note: these are all expensive because of game settings, not due to AH pricing)
: A palette swap riverwallow, costing 50k plus apexis crystals.
Currently 9% attained.
: The alliance motorcycle, costing 100k (due to not winning the contest).
Currently 6% attained.
: Pretty flying meta-mount (showing you could afford all 4 panthers). Usually costs around 100k (not including dupers).
Currently 19% attained.
: The original 'mount with vendors yay' mount. Costs 20k.
Currently 32% attained.
: MoP's Traveler's Tundra mount, costing 120k - includes transmog (used to be reforging) and vendor NPCs.
Currently 19% attained.
Looking through these expensive mounts, you can see it's hard to tell why something is popular, but the most recent mounts (Riverwallow and Treadblade) are the least owned. To me though, it seems people don't have much motivation to purchase them.
As much as I understand where Blizzard is coming from with their 'minority' excuse for the 2M gold cost of this thing, it just really really really sucks for those of us that saw this thing when it was first data mined, fell in love, because it's a spider (yes, I really like spiders... snakes too, but we won't go there right now...), and now have little to no hope of getting it during Legion
. Unless it's going to be easy to rake in 100k a week in Legion, the hopes of anyone with less than a million gold right now to get this have been pretty well dashed... I got into Warlords late, so am waaaay behind... I'm sure there are plenty of others like me.
*On a small happy thought side, at least they most likely will leave it in forever since it's from a vendor. This means those of us that probably won't be able to afford it in Legion, might be able to afford it in the next couple of expansions after Legion.
I've been playing this game for just a smidge over 11 years and haven't made an accumulative total of 2,000,000 gold across all my characters... making this another pipe dream in an increasingly long string of pipe dreams in this game. I had to save for 2 months at the start of Cata farming my ass off for leather off the bat swarms in Deepholm, before they nerfed it, and then crocs in Uldum, buying out the server's stock of leather to resell it, just to get the damned tundra mammoth. And I thought the Yak was asking a bit much. This, though...
I like this game, but running the auction house for months on end to make some dosh has never been an aspiration of mine. I'm a librarian, not a hedge fund manager. Economics and finance is not my jam. Right now 90% of my gold comes from farming Cata raids every week, which in the current, post-wowtoken economy isn't much. I really hope this gets lowered, because as it stands right now, this is so expensive that I don't even want to try to get it, as it would be like trying to cross the Rub' al Khali naked and blindfolded.
There's a very important point that hasn't been addressed (other than by wowwowy in their smart reply) and that's that this mount doesn't seem to fly. That really blows the deal!
Finally! A mount that rewards the botting community!......
I don't mind gold sinks, and I'm not complaining about the price.
But why did they have to make this 'status symbol' mount a frickin' spider?
Everyone who has one will use it all the time to show off, and there's will be TERRIFYING SPIDERS everywhere.
I wish WoW had a setting like that skyrim mod that turns spiders into bears.
Gunna buy one when I can and use it on my rogue with its class-specific
and turn it into a jumping spider.
Spider mount, spider mount
It'll empty your bank account
Wanna ride? It's a thrill
It'll cost you a whole two mil.
If you want the spider mount...
Blizzard's way to take back your gold
. Fortunatly this mount ain't worth any gold. It's all vanity gone wrong. No one is gona envy you with that I'm pretty sure coz it's ugly!
1 million gold price would have made this more 'reasonably" priced, particularly if done celebrate the new per character gold cap increase, allowing us to finally actually have 1 million gold on one toon (and yes, more).
This is a day one purchase for me at any price.
love how they made the token price based on how much gold was on each realm group , like in eu , us and chinese realms was under 50 k @ launch cause thats how much ppl can afford a token , and in taiwanese / korean realms was well above 100k cause they have so much gold.... because of that the rest have to suffer? couldnt they make it like 1 mil on our realms? and as some above stated its very ugly ... will buy it cause im a collector but will never ride it!
Wait a second! Two million gold coins! That's insane!
View in 3D then go to animation "Mount" ... not sure wtf is going on!
The gold cost of this mount really
Before you flip out about the supposed 2 mil cost. Click the screenshot on this article. It shows the mount going for 100k? Not sure what the deal is.
And people wonder why many people buy gold because they cant make 2mil in the game. Items like that is the reason. On the other hand, 500$ for a mount is a huge money dump too.
Quick math here :
35K gold = 25$
2.000.000 gold / 35 K = 56
56 * 25$ =
Holy ^&*! This mount cost more than a 5 month worth of food/b]
edit : updated the token price
Still say there should be an achievement for purchasing this mount
(I did btw and i dont regret doing so cause its looks badass to extreme and scary as hell when you use the mount special ability animation)
I have been emailing Blizzard for years. YEARS. For a gat. damn. spider. mount.
When they added the spider mount in Heroes of the Storm I IMPLORED them, they needed one in WoW.
I truly feel I am responsible for this amazing gift.
As much as it costs WAY TOO FRIGGIN' MUCH, I am beyond excited.
Thank you, Blizzard. Thank you.
WOOHOOO! Got this last night at around 11pm on Sylvanas server. Was camping with another player and we got chatting while waiting. She had to go and cook while I stood guard and typicaly as in most things it seems once she got back I went to view my bank and that's when she said 'HE'S UP COME COME :D'. Cant describe the feeling having something hardly anyone else had and was superbly unique. Was a wonderful experience as we both went to
after purchase and maxed our sizes using
.Was HUGE ahaha. Got a lot of reactions, mostly positive but damn was supprised at some people's comments just assuming I bought gold for this. One player called me a retard cause I should apparently buy only stuff HE/SHE says I should like TCG mounts (which I dont really like - Mottled Drake being the exception). Sounds like that player might have been a little jealous. Worked my hiney biney off for this mount so why SHOULDN'T I show it off? Thank you all who participated in a little chasing RP that night haha was fun. GL to the rest of you getting this mount. All the best
P.S. soz for the life story and hope the approx time helps
I'll never get it
Does the price includes <The Mad Customer> title?
12 years ago, if someone told me there was a mount being sold from a vendor for 2million gold, I would've thought you'd be spending a fortune to ride Thrall's back. ?
While Legion flying is several patches away, this is my default mount while running around in Broken Isles Dalaran. Out in the world, Azure Water Strider still beats out most of my other mount, but for show off purpose, this is it for now.
NOPE! Nope! Nope nope nope nope nope nope nope...
And our next stop on the tour of
'Lifestyles of the WoW Rich & Famous'...
the Bloodfang Widow! This rare beauty of a rideable arachnid can be yours for about the price of 17 Grand Expedition Yaks.
Sell Price 1c
Gives me a bit of a giggle that staves off the depression that I'll never afford this mount.
I bought this mount, and it's as awesome as it looks. There are a few things I'd like to clear up, though.
First, to those people complaining about the real-world money conversion cost of this mount and how insane it would be to buy it. Sure, you're right, the 2m gold does equate to a lot of subscriptions but you fail to consider the fact that anyone who wants to purchase this mount clearly has no issues making gold for the monthly subscription. I already have my account pre-purchased as far as I can and I make more than a monthly subscription per day most days so I can afford to purchase this mount and still never-ever have to pay for the game. If I could sell that gold via other means, I definitely wouldn't have purchased the mount, though. Since it was sitting there doing nothing I may as well buy a cool mount with it.
Secondly, it's great to know that as I'm running around I'm freaking out Arachnophobics! A lot of people take the time to PM me and tell me how creepy it is. Yeah, that's a big reason why I got it! mauahaha
Lastly, if you're a Tauren and you own this mount you can fit through doors! Worth every copper.
Never going to buy this; I have 200+ mounts. And when I want to use one I don't want to hear the voice in my head saying over and over...
"Not that one! Use the spider, you paid 2 million gold for it."
Nothing to comment except that this herbalism mount is dope
I would pay 2 million for the green fire hawk you get at 250 mounts since i will never get that many. I would also pay 2 mill gold for MAGIC BROOM Halloween mount . I cant say i would pay more than 30k for something that does not fly.
and in one more patch we will have flying making this mount just like all the others.
Note mount actually has one unique feature that is easily missed. It jumps higher than other mounts.
If you are at any slightly elevated platform try a jump, it lands much further than other mounts due the the height of its jump.
Mad Merchant Spawned at 1AM PST on Chromaggus U.S.Camped him for a few hours, just an FYI, I got pretty lucky cause my alt was lv. 18 and a half, just ran to duskwood and got to twenty in 10 minutes! but you cannot buy the mount on an alt unless you are at least level 20. This will save you a headache if you are buying it on an alt.
to make this truly horrifying, it just needs to fly XD
This mount has got to be one of the ugliest mounts ever. Nope rather spend my gold on the other Mad Merchant's items!
This feels like mounting my mother in law. It is fantastic
can be tracked using the
addon, in the settings choose "Add manually" and enter the ID of this NPC: 108468, click OK. At first there will be the inscription "Unknown: 108468" (but the addon will already search for this NPC), after the relogin there will already be "The Mad Merchant: 108468" (
You can leave the game in the minimized window, if you configure the audio signal, then as the NPC appears, you will immediately understand this. Good luck! :)
Bought this to scare people with arachnophobia. Worth every penny.
Lord of reins
worth of every penny. Kneel you poor bastards... i say kneel!
Quick question: Does the dalaran faction rep discount from wotlk apply to this guy too or no?
I have Arachnophobia but it works like this, I am not afraid of spiders if I know they are not a threat to me. So as long as the spider is mine, I have no problem with them. I start to fear them when an opponent starts using them or some unknown spider enters my room.
Never in my life would I ever thought I'd have this much gold in my entire existence in WoW and be able to buy something. (Missed out on the brutosaur, shouldn't of been removed in the first place)
Just recently bought this cutie today at 2 am, I underestimated how big it would be for some characters, I still love it!
I was looking for a very eerie place in Drustvar to take some screenshots with the
when suddenly this World Quest pops up, (with a level 20 Rogue, hence why I was not flying) thought the coincidence was worth a
lmao! still one of my favorite mounts in the game.
