I have to agree that commonality makes something "less awesome". When they first showed pictures of the Spectral Steed, everyone and their brother thought it was just about the coolest thing they'd ever seen. Now what's the public opinion of them? "Laaaaame." So what happened? Did it spontaneously look different? Everyone thought they were so great, then it was released and all of those people got it. Suddenly, you saw it everywhere and it wasn't so cool anymore. I think maybe the same can be said of the Raven Lord to a small degree. I remember riding mine around Dalaran constantly and people would always pst me "Your mount is cool! where'd you get it?" Once I found TWO other people with it at the same time and I just thought it was amazing that there three in the same place. We had a little parade. Now I see them alot more all over and, to me at least, it feels a little less cool. A little less exclusive. Granted, I also got a cooler ground mount to ride on, so that may temper my feelings a little. (Not to brag, but I lucked out and the Landro's Loot Box card that came with my Collector's Edition gave me a Spectral Tiger.) Although think about this: The Spectral Tiger is a cool mount, right? If tomorrow Blizzard gave one to every toon and everyone was riding them around, would it seem "less awesome"?
