Thought the new 6-month bundle was going to be that Horde Rylak and Alliance sheep? lol
We'll get them later today, don't worry :P
To Repeat a comment from the original datamining:
And we get only a recolor for M+.
betcha any money this is to pad sub numbers while we wait until after christmas for 9.2 because that will be revealed at blizzcon online event in 2022 wewlad
There it is.
The amount of copium in these comments.Of course it's a store mount. All 6-month bundle mounts are also store mounts.And that sucks and all, but what stands out even more as a negative to me is that that likely means that these mounts will be faction-locked, Alliance (blue) and Horde (red). Now both colors sound really nice, but for Alliance players who want a more classic orange-ish phoenix look, they'll probably be screwed and for Horde players who want a cool more unique blue flame phoenix are also screwed, if that is the case.
Another boat for bobby.
i.e. 9.2 will be in 8 months if we are lucky
And no one is shocked to see that a unique model is given to the shop in the wake of a patch that is 90% recolors
Poggers, more cash shop mounts. Exactly what a sub based game needs
We seem to be getting a new shop mount every 2 months. We just had Lucky Yun, Snowstorm in February, Phase Hunter in May, they brought back the Imperial Quillen in June, and now July probably contains a Phoenix.All the shop mounts are visually distinct from one another. Compared to the amount of visually distinct mounts we get in a patch like 9.1 the ratio is way high. I wish the shop didn't exist. Every single thing created for and put in the shop could have instead been a reward in the game. There is no reason for the shop mounts to exist aside from profit. Profit, which incentivizes them to regularly produce visually distinct mounts for the shop while the patch rewards are the likes of RazerwingDusklight Razorwing4 colorsShardhideBeryl Shardhide4 colorsChargerMawsworn Charger's Reins4 colorsHandNilganihmaht Control Ring4 colorsMaulerRampaging Mauler2 colorsDiscCartel Master's Gearglider3 colorsKyrianElysian Aquilon4 colorsNightfaeArdenweald Wilderling Harness4 colorsVenthyrSinfall Gravewing4 colorsNecrolordMaldraxxian Corpsefly Harness4 colors--------------Who knows how many recolors the below have had by this point.

We got 10 mounts I would consider visually distinct and 5 straight up recolors. Over the same period the Shop is probably getting about half as many visually distinct mounts.
!@#$ its the blue rukhmar i bet. God damn it.
