I can understand both perspectives, but agree more readily with Ithnnin's position, to be honest. Let me explain.Mounts were initially placed at level 40 to give players a chance to feel the vastness that is WoW. But now that the map has expanded via TBC and the upcoming WotLK packs, it makes sense on some level (...) to decrease the level requirement for speeding things up a bit.However, this change seems to be along the same lines of those that have made Epic gear less awe-inspiring than they once were. "They used to take effort to get, but now, everyone has them, etc." Call me an old-schooler or an elitist or whatever, but I enjoyed having an identity within WoW before everyone started wearing the exact same gear.Now, I know that this specific change isn't all that bad and that maybe my argument presents a potential slippery slope, but I do feel that changes like this do lean in the direction described above.Hopefully Bliz will not make a habit of doing this too much and too often, because then, we really would lose all the identities we have created and enjoy.

>Call me an old-schooler or an elitist or whatever, but I enjoyed having an identity within WoW before everyone started wearing the exact same gear.So what you're saying is you liked to lord it over players who had less time to get epics than you?

So your saying you like to be just like everyone else?

Do I enjoy being exactly like everyone else? No.Am I silly enough to think that gear/spec make me the same as everyone else? No.My mistakes, choices, skills and communication make me and my character who they are. The kind of people I like to hang out with don't friend list you because you have T4, T5 or T6. They pick people who are gracious enough to know when they've screwed up and admit it, intelligent enough to make sacrifices for the team, skilled enough to deal with potential disaster, and simply fun to hang around from the get go.
