You're completely missing/ignoring the point.The Baron mount looks cool, but that's it. There's no correlation between it and skill or dedication or anything else. Patience for time spent, yes but that's true of hundreds of other things in the game.Who cares that you can solo farm it, it in itself means nothing.By contrast, the 310% protos are status symbols. They show that you had the skill and dedication to complete all the achievements encompassed in the meta. You EARN it, you don't get lucky. By removing it in 3.1 all that's happening is that those who had the time, skill dedication or whatever to get it when it still meant something (i.e. before it's position as a status symbol was taken away by the achievement being trivialised) are being given exclusivity on the mount. That's fine and fair.If you disagree with this, I return again to Gladiator mounts, and PvP achievements generally. Do you think it's unfair that only the top 1% of PvPers get a Gladiator mount and title? My guess is no, because it shows that they're at the top of the PvP game. When Season 5 ends, would you complain that you didn't have time to reach 2300 rating or whatever the rating for Gladiator in your battlegroup will be? Again, my guess is no.Why should PvE content not have these exclusive rewards for those who are at the forefront of progression?
