Ok, I'm confused. Why are people saying enough with the spectrals?Isn't there only 4, and out of those, 2 require the tcg, and the other 2 are from tol barad?Am I missing 20something mounts?

The worry is that we're reaching what I will now refer to as "the drake point"- the point where a previously rare mount type of unspeakable awesome becomes common as dirt. The name arises from the history of drake mounts- In BC, Netherwings were the only drake mount and were prized highly. Today, you are shamed by all if you show up in a capital city without a drake.

I think the other half of the equation is the ever increasing number of spectral/spirit pets/mobs out there, and in that, you're getting closer to 20 something. The effect is now starting to wear off after the 50th spectral cat pet and 90th spirit bear.I may be off base though, but that's what bugs me.

Jabadabadana has it exactly correct, and that's why we're reaching the drake point. Just like with drakes, people are starting to look at spectrals and see "look a spectral" and not "OMG a spectral! Which one is it?" It's not a problem now, but it will be with these new mounts, and it'll be worse if we get any more.

Comparing spectral mounts to pets is a little apples to oranges here. I am sorry if you are a BM hunter that has a stable of them. I would venture to guess that the majority of WoW players are not. Too many spectrals? Now if you said too many horses or too many drakes you would have a better argument. Too many spectrals? I'll take them.

How does 2 readily available mounts = drake status? I think people are over reacting about this in all honesty : / It's not like they're adding 5 different skins for each faction.
