WoW Mount Changes

Posted Thu, Jun 11, 2009 by Yadiera

In the next major patch for World of Warcraft (patch 3.2), Blizzard intends to make changes to mount requirements. This is good news for new players and new alts, or alts who have been neglected. The changes they will be doing to mount requirements will lower the costs to train and buy a mount, and lowering some level requirements.

In the next major content patch, we intend to adjust mount requirements to further improve the leveling experience in World of Warcraft. In addition, cast times for summoning all mounts will be reduced to 1.5 seconds, down from 3 seconds. The following is a breakdown of the upcoming cost and level requirement changes we are making for each riding skill.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
