When you realize that if you do the Hivemind chain with your M+ group you can get an extra 30% movement speed while moving between packs 🙃OW and RBG also 🙃— Mr. FelHammer (@_kib0) December 17, 2018

For perspective, if it were freely usable by anyone, it’d become a mandatory-feeling power upgrade, and you’d see nothing but Hiveminds everywhere. Like this, it’s an awesome looking, prestigious mount, with just a tiny extra bonus.— ✨🐉 (@Celestalon) December 17, 2018

Celestalon’s explanation is wrong though because I can carry anyone on my other toons. His explanation works for my shaman because that’s what toon I got the mount on but not all my other characters.
And now you stuffed over all those people that joined random groups. tyvm Blizzard.
They should let it be a standard multi-person mount. For the trouble you go through to get it, having it be a three or five person mount isn't awful.Make the speed bonus only apply to your "Hivemind," sure, if you're worried it will become 'required.' But don't restrict the multi-mounting aspect.
While I do agree that having a much faster mount that can hold 5 people is op, I wish that I could use it as a normal two person mount with no speed increase with anyone.
Totally sucks and makes the mount feel like a waste. I did it with random other people from the Secret Finding discord, it took a few hours but we had a good time and got the mount. Now I find out the cool unique part of the mount is useless because I'll never see those people again.Why are some mounts allowed to be useful, like Sky Golem and Water Striders (which I love), but not others?It doesn't help the feeling that my time doing the puzzles was wasted when I see people exploiting the final area to summon in people and sell the mount without the receiver doing any puzzles...
It's 100% a pointless stipulation, I don't see how anyone thought it would be a good idea.
Yeah my boyfriend was able to join I. The mount and give me the speed on my Mage and Druid even tho he wasn’t even logged in to the game when’s I got it. Either he’s wrong, or it’s bugged. Either way, that is a really annoying requirement as I joined a pug with people I don’t know to get it and we just had a good time and figured out some puzzles together.
Well that's entirely disappointing...Really wanted to mess around and have fun with my guild from time to time but I guess that's not happening...I get how the true Hivemind were who you did it with but still... That's really meh...
I really think the speed bonus should just be disabled in M+/RBGs. Let it be enabled everywhere else, it's a fun little bonus perk.
I would rather give up the speed boost and just have it be a 5-man mount than this.Those of us who had to group up with strangers we'll never talk to again because our friends and family are either unsubbed currently, away on holiday, or otherwise unavailable have basically been kicked in the no-no parts.
At the very least you're able to swap who you're connected with, so doing it with randoms isn't going to screw you over.Having it be a baseline two-seater for all non-joint players would be a nice compromise.On top, make sure that if you're going with an account-wide lock, don't do a lock to the characters. Do a lock to the friends accounts. Meaning that if 1,2,3,4,5 all complete this together, don't screw over 4's alt just because it's not their main.And because people have been skimming over the article, you are not screwed if you did this with randoms. Redo the last puzzle with the people you want to use the mount with and your problem is solved.Now all they've gotta do is fix the discrepancy with alts being able to get anyone in their Hivemind.
Especially for people who play on different servers or factions, having the "Joined Hivemind" perk being account wide would be really restrictive. I only play on one server/faction, but for that reason I think it should be only per character (even if it made my life a lot easier if it was account wide).And to those who pugged it. Just think of this perk as the final piece of the puzzle. It's easy enough to complete the final steps again with your M+ group if you want to.To the people who paid for being carried through this. Lol, in your face! Don't buy a product or service you don't understand.
Now i feel pretty sad for those who joined random people to get the Mount.. :/ Even i feel deflated at the news that using it on my alt will be 100% useless with my friends..I just want the 5-man capacity to stay above all else, even if it's just normal travelling out in the world.
Blizzard's fun police strikes again?
Screw you, Blizzard. Having a 5 person mount as something you can get in the game from your hard work is what we wanted. I don't give a crap about the speed boost, I want to be able to carry my friends regardless of who they are, at any time. I don't want to have to do that stupid puzzle every time I want to carry one of my friends. Getting them all online to do the puzzle together is an impossible feat. Not to mention my friends that don't have the hivemind. Do I have to carry them through getting the monocles too in order to get this "tiny extra bonus"? Seating should be baseline, mount speed should be from the puzzle.
