I dropped a note to a friend of mine who is more into the game than anybody else I know to find out if she had purchased a shiny new pony yet. I got this in reply:
Almost. It looked pretty cool on the website. When I logged in, I saw one. Cool. Then I saw three more when I turned the corner. Then I saw a whole flock of them (is a group of celestial mounts a ‘flock’? Can’t be a herd, they fly…) up at Krasus’ Landing, and it kinda killed it for me.
Ooops, the status symbol got too common! Not unexpected, I guess, when the queue for purchasing the steed and the new pet got to be 140,000 orders deep.
In flying around Krasus’ Landing this morning, a rather off-peak time, Greed Steeds were quite in evidence. My own current flying mount might be a more unique sight at the moment.
So if you are “that guy on the horse,” the one standing at some well traveled public intersection sitting on your new mount so that everybody can see it, you’re probably going to want to pick some other mount from your collection to show off.
