Remember when we had to wait until Lvl 40 to get our mounts? And at what cost again? Like 1000g. That to for.........................................................ever. You noobs have it so easy.Now excuse me while I go QQ

Pretty sure it was only 100g for normal riding and 1000g for epic. Getting those amounts was tough though. It took lots of farming at 60 to get 1000g. I much prefer the current way where by the time you reach the level, you should have enough for the skill.

why downgrade this? its all true, and it pains me when i hear players today complain about how long it takes to level, or how slow the mounts are, or (god forbid), how expensive training the riding skill is. also remember back then, there were no riding skills. you bought the mount you wanted, and that was that. you could technically skip the lvl 40 mount and go straight to epic, but this was rare, as few people could afford the epic mounts back in the day.

@i2Hellfire:Because our grandparents told us enough stories about walking to school through frozen tundras before wheels were invented and killing yetis with their bare hands before swords were invented.

Complete rubbish. Epic L60 mounts were no more difficult to get the money for than epic flying mounts are in the current game. WoW has always been an easy game to make gold in for anyone with half a brain, even in vanilla before there were any dailies.
