I'm really disappointed about the removals and changes, because it seems they're being implemented just for the heck of it, even though the majority of players, cursed by the RNG gods, are still extremely keen to get the ZG mounts and pet. Surely it wouldn't be that hard to move them to another thematically appropriate area of the game, still make them a challenge to get, but at least they'd still be there? As for the hatchling, why can't it become like the other raptor pets and be a chance drop off another raptor type in the area (I'm assuming there will still be raptors dotted about in STV in Cata) or else be gained from a rare spawn nest?As for the blue/azure drakes, I can't see any mount collectors being able to get teams easily to go for those in Cata. The 10 and 25 man versions of Maly are notoriously disliked by a large proportion of players, and I can't see people (other than the serious mount fan) wanting to go back to them when there will be lots of new shiny raids that they actually enjoy going to. For the dedicated mount collectors, it should be feasible to do 10 man Maly with a reduced number team at level 85, but most people already have the blue drake from Oculus. I was really looking forward to taking the core 'mount collector' team from our guild to 10 man Maly to farm for the azure, once we wouldn't need a full team (impossible to get even now for that raid even when it's the weekly). I think it would have been better to leave those two mounts as they are, with the blue simply becoming a random drop at the end of Oculus rather than in the special reward bag in place at present.As one person on our guild forum said about this, it's just sad they want to leave certain mounts in the game but take away the pretty ones.

I think the reason they're moving the blue drake back to 10-man Maly is because right now you can only get it when you get Oculus RANDOMLY. If the dungeon finder stays the same, players would only have a small window of opportunity to queue for random Lich King heroics. By moving it back to Malygos they're actually making it much more obtainable from a level 85 perspective.
