I'll probably get downrated into the abyss for saying this, but I'm slightly annoyed by this change. I've always felt it should be a druid's privilege to have easy access to this mount and to decide who they share it with. Although to be honest, that's probably because my main is a druid and I already have this mount. However, the fact that they are making it easier to get this mount while removing the ZG mounts (which still elude me to this day) bothers me somewhat.

The thing is... it's happened before to other classes. Back in vanilla, Paladins and Warlocks were able to get mounts faster than others because of the quests built-in for us as part of lore (at least for Pallies). The reason why it was done was to make it fairer to all the other classes.I'll agree, it's a class specific "privilege" to do so, but when you take into consideration that your flying questline giving you faster flying before a lot of people can access that flight speed normally - I'm actually in support of the change. This just puts it inline with the rest of the mounts you have to farm - you just have to do the run and hope it drops.

@coraldayton:What do you mean by 'your flying questline giving you faster flying before a lot of people can access that flight speed normally'? It used to be that druids got to fly at 68 before most people could fly normally in Outland at 70, true, but with the change to normal flying at 60 that's no longer the case, and the epic flight form quest line has always required 300 riding skill before it opens up. And before you smugly point at that 68 thing, keep in mind that druids basically didn't get anything combat-effective at that level thanks to flight form in Burning Crusade. Water under the bridge, just water under the bridge, move on...Honestly I'm ambivalent about the change. The one druid I really wanted it on, managed to get the mount a few weeks ago after a couple months of solo farming it. It'll be interesting to try soloing it with other classes now, though I do think they should have kept the moonstone stand so people have to clear the room like I always did before summoning him. *insert crying about blizzard ruining stuff to make the game casual, completely tongue-in-cheek*

I'm thrilled with the change, and I get where you're coming from, but in general I just say "get over it" to people who complain about this sort of thing. Maybe that sounds a tad insensitive, but I've never been a fan of exclusivity - and I'm also all about self-sufficiency, especially when it comes to WoW. It bothers me enough that I have to bug my fiance to help me farm rep most of the time - let alone trying to find someone with a druid (He doesn't have one) to help me with this.Now I can go in there on my own and solo it- frankly, I love it. Don't get me wrong, I like playing with other people- but I don't like having to rely on other people to get my own achievements.
