Bought em without hesitation. I love the Panthara models; they grew on me like crazy on the PTR. Shame the yellow mount and pet don't have blue highlights like the tameable yellow one.

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
Oh wait...you can't!

Name the game these characters are from, and I'll be amazed.

They're gorgeous! I love the manes and I wonder why we didn't see them on the wild beasts. Maybe they were too much?

The video and flavour text seem to give away that they were originally meant to be Suramar beasts. Maybe they couldn't finish them in time, or maybe they pulled them so they had something for Argus. Either way, they probably should have reshot the video before release so it didn't look so incongruous :/

It makes me wonder if marsuul were originally intended for Suramar as well. They certainly seem to fit the zone.

BTW, the mounts don't seem to be showing up in Armory downloads yet, so they won't appear in your Warcraft Mounts collection. I'll give it a couple of days (in case it's just a server delay) before reporting it.

I have almost all the cat mounts.I love cats! But I refuse to buy another mount from the shop.
The price increase from this year is just unethical. Prices were already too high. I can pay it without any problems but in some countries ppl only earn 600-800 euro/month. Sometimes even less.

I do not want to support the greed of a company. I hope alot ppl thinking the same so blizz have to lower the prices again so everyone got a change to buy this mount or other stuff from the shop.

I thought it was the same price as older shop mounts. I have previous ones recorded on Warcraft Mounts at US$25 / €20 and I thought this one was the same. It's more expensive for the pet/mount bundle, of course. Did I get the price wrong?

Its the same price as the other mounts in the US. The token went up in gold after the mount, but that isn't terribly surprising.

Ah sorry! I really misread that. I wonder why they increased one and not the other :/

I do love the mount. My one lil gripe, though is that, at least for male and female Tauren, there's no animation when you summon it and no sound. So last night, I'd click it and think I'd missed the button or something since my character just stood there for a few seconds before the cat silently appeared under him/her.

I assume the same thing happens to other races, but I was only playing a couple of my Tauren last night.

It is all races that are being bugged and though I really like the mount being a winged cat with wings not broken ala Wolfhawk I hope they fix this mounting bug cause I like to see my mount appear beneath my panda. Even the pet is glitched unless they are now calling all our pets minions which is fine just let the players know going forward so we don't assume they are bugs.
