I wonder if it is because they listened to the feedback of the players ("don't remove it plox") or because they don't plan to introduce something for the Colliseum because of the lack of bosses compared with Ulduar and Naxxramas.

The Coliseum rewards Warhorse mounts that are faction colored.

By feedback, I assume you mean whining. I think this very lame. I don't have a drake. I should never be able to get a drake until I and my guildies improve our play. Unfortunately it now looks like I will be able to gear up even more and have a shot at it if I wanted to.Here is the worst part... I'm probably going to have to continue to go back to Ulduar with guildies who care about vanity mounts and achievements, just so they can get a mount that they and I don't deserve.Special exclusive awards like this give people something to strive for. A reason to improve. I hate playing WoW with people who have no interest in self improvement. If the only thing that motivates them are purples and rare mounts then I want Blizzard to make those hard to get so they will share my work ethic and desire for improvement. Sure it's fine we downed that boss even though 3 people died, but next time we should expect to do better. It isn't enough to just win. You need to win well.

I wonder if the Violet Proto-Drake has something to do with this. It seems like last time the excuse for removal of the Naxx drakes was that they wanted to keep 310 drakes rare. But if the VPD goes live at 310 speed then extra-fast drakes will be more common than choppas (on my server at least).

@ Manatank: You do realize some of those achievements (some of the hardest ones for that matter) cannot be achieved if you're wearing gear over a certain level? Yeah, try to know what you're talking about before you start trolling.

Why was manatank voted down for telling the truth?.. The point of the drakes is visible reward for people who do hardmodes/achievements. Going back into Ulduar to get the iron-bound drake in T9 will be a lot easier.. just like getting the rusted drake is now in 25-man gear - I know I got one its stupid easy. Its like going back to the middle-ages with a machine gun and saying you're the best knight out there. I know that until my guild finishes the rest of 25-man glory don't deserve the reward though we will try to get it. I think a good compromise would be to allow the RUSTED drake to stay in for casual, hard-mode players (lol sounds funny though I guess that's how you would say it =\) and remove the ability to get the iron-bound one after the patch so it still has some e-peen significance in the future. With that compromise all the casual-oriented players can grab the "easier" drake, and raiders can still show off their iron-bound drake. That way if your job was crazy during 3.1 you could still go back and have a drake to farm up.Well, looks like im wall of texting again, anyways what do you guys think?
