"Yeah, let's make more and more expensive mounts after we nerfed gold gains"
Cool mount tho.
I'm buying this. Period.
Mildly interesting, and possibly intentional, is that 524,288 is the number of bytes in 512 kibibytes.
Time to start charging for Goldshire lap dances.
Actual cost once exalted should be 419,430g after exalted rep discount.
400K for a rep mount is outrageous. Especially considering I have been playing the game since 2005 and I have NEVER had more than 80k gold at one time. This shouldn't cost any more than 10k like other rep mounts.
These mount prices are just getting damn stupid, there's absolutely no reason for them to be this expensive.
Greedy *>/$ing blizzard trying to milk every cent out of people that will buy wow tokens just to buy a +÷=/ing rep mount.(##RESPBREAK##)258##DELIM##Sas148##DELIM##
3 frogs for a million, a direhorn for 500k, brutosaurus for 5 million and now this, not sure why blizzard has to make rep mounts that expensive. BfA is just a complete gold sink overall, its too much with this x-pac
I won't buy any mount that dips up and down or swoops. The cloud serpent is the worst, the sky golem not much better. The video says NOT FOR ME. You can try the mount out for free once you have flying for Mech. Just die and you get the mount to bring you back to your body!
Interesting side effect of flying on this mount in Mechagon is that it seems to make you immune to the HK-8 Aerial Oppression Unit locking on and shooting you. Handy for going afk in the sky i guess
Very expensive. I have tried different things to raise gold. Professions don't cut it, gems, potions etc sell for so little. I even tried a little addon that says what the price of an item is on your realm - absolutely useless. The prices it said to list were way off.
Anyway, this is yet another highly expensive mount that a lot of the player base won't be able to afford. Make exalted mounts affordable, I.E. less than 100k.
This mount costs 445644.80, if you go to
and put 80 in the gene search, the result is..... Human
Too bad, for a casual player too expensive.
for this amount you'd think this too could be painted a different colour, but noooo. (at least, not that i've found so far).
While it is true that we have quite a few goldsink mounts this expansion, I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing. I've already obtained 8 new mounts since the expansion started, and the most I spent is 10K gold. If I wanted to buy this, or one of the frogs for an example, I know I could do it with a bit of effort, and I know I'd be proud of myself when I'm finally able to buy it, unlike the rep horses (which I never even used). Point is, they aren't cheap, but they're not unobtainable either.
I know most of us won't collect them all before the end of the expansion, but so what. It makes them even more valuable.
These expensive mounts are only "gold sinks" if you feel like you have to buy them. I've got plenty of mounts why bother to spend 4K for the Rustbolt Resistor or 5 million for the Brontosaur mount. These mounts are like Rolex watches, a watch that doesn't keep better time than a $50 Casio, it's just to say "ooohh I've got lots of money."
I achieved Exalted with Rustbolt, but very disappointed at the cost for this mount? Rustbolt Resistor was crazy gold. Sad.
The way this mount bounces up and down as you fly along is nauseating. Boing-boing-boing... seriously big hops. If I had known how annoying the motion would be, I wouldn't have purchased it.
Update: After a couple of hours of this I think the closest analogy is that it's like riding piggyback on a one-legged drunk.
I wish if we could paint it like mechanocat :(
Half a million gold... after being forced to earn exalted. Gee... brainy bunch at Blizzard huh
As mentioned elsewhere, this mount will not be targeted by the HK-8 Aerial Oppression Unit, which can be a huge boon when flying in Mechagon! A couple more points worth noting:
Another mount that has the same behaviour (will not be targeted by the HK-8 Aerial Oppression Unit) is the
, which is a guaranteed drop for ONE party member when completing
on Hard Mode

Another Wowhead user was kind enough to post a macro that can be used to summon one of these mounts while in Mechagon, and your random favourite mount elsewhere! All credit to user
for this great macro. I've reposted this below, based on which mount you want to use.
/run if IsMounted() then Dismount() return end local t=C_Map.GetBestMapForUnit("player") if (t==1462) then C_MountJournal.SummonByID(1227) else C_MountJournal.SummonByID(0) end;
/run if IsMounted() then Dismount() return end local t=C_Map.GetBestMapForUnit("player") if (t==1462) then C_MountJournal.SummonByID(1254) else C_MountJournal.SummonByID(0) end;
And Blizzard probably wonders why there are so many people in chat and mail trying to sell you gold for the game.
I don't know why people get so fussed over this. It's a mount, doesn't really mean anything for gameplay. If 400+ K seems like a waste of gold, fegh why bother. Think cars in the real world. A Honda Accord can get you from point A to B just as well as a Mercedes C coupe. So, who cares? I figure my !@#$ is sufficient so that I don't need to bolster my manhood by spending a lot of money, or gold in Azeroth.
I like it and think it's a pretty cool mount. I also like the fact it keeps the heat off of me in Mechagon. I don't understand why there are so many complaints about the price of the mount. A little over 400k is really not a lot of gold. There are plenty of ways to make gold in WoW. Just have to be willing to grind as I have for over a decade when wanting a particular item. So what if it was a rare drop instead of a purchasable mount? You still grind to get the drop just like you do raise gold to get this mount. Play the auction house, farm materials, craft, etc. Run quests, treasure, rares, etc. Please stop complaining and just grind! There is a whole big world out there! Before you know you'll have it. It's a lot easier and faster to farm gold than a rare which could consist of lockouts or an astronomical low drop rate.
