I don't like Blizzard's new way of distributing mounts. They make a new mount, then they make 5 or so different colors of said mount, then make each of them almost impossible to get, then they take a lunch.I liked the Netherwing model. It wasn't easy and afterwards it felt like an accomplishment (Anyone else remember gettting pwned by Mulv about 78 times before beating him?), but at least you knew that it could be done, and afterwards you had your pick of whatever color drake you wanted!Now we have Proto-Drakes...which are basically Netherdrakes 2.0. Except to get a Proto-Drake you either have to be a lucky bastard or be part of a hardcore raiding guild. There's only two that are even remotely attainable for the average player, the Red and Violet Drakes, and I don't even like those colors! I would prefer a Blue Proto-Drake...but Blizzard decided to be dumb and make it a crazy low drop rate off of a Heroic boss. Seriously...that shit is okay if the mount is a freaking Phoenix, but if it's just a recolor of a mount everyone else is already riding why should I be punished simply because I like the color blue?Colors are colors...it should be up to the player as to which color they want to choose baised on their personal preference. As we speak there are probably people riding Green Proto-Drakes that hate the color green. Of course there are "special colors" and flavors of a mount such as Black, Plauged, Rusted, and Iron-Bound, but the basic colors such as green, blue, and red shouldn't be nigh-unattainable. That's just my 2c.
