as fun as they are, this and the hellicopters kinda ruined the feel of the game. i know the game is not based in the past but if they are going to make these modern vehicles update all the mounts to mechanized as well. a society that starts mechanized transportation quicly adapts and there would not be many people riding primative animals. therefor engineers should be able to manfacture mounts for everyone.absurd? yes. but so aqre these mounts imo.

If it's ruined the feel of the game to you than you haven't played any other Warcraft titles... in WC3 there were flying machines (Piloted by dwarves I believe).

What many people seem to forget is that Warcraft is a traditional steampunk setting, and has been that way since at least Warcraft 2 (I can't speak for the first game, having not played it).This is a world where you can make a gold mine burst into flames by shooting it with enough arrows (faithfully represented in WoW by having every stone act as an explosive when ground into powder).The laws of physics are different here. Combustion engines are easier to make.

yea, deeprun tram has always been around too.its a personal taste really. i prefer living mounts over carpets, brooms and machines. its nice to escape our common reality and these just make it a little more like boring old normal modern life. not to mention how disney they look.

Mechanostrider much? Engineering maybe?You're fine with people making magical mechanical dragons made out of arcanite that somehow fly and breath fire and you're upset about motorcycles?

We don't have steampunk machines in real life.
