Oct 3rd 2008 6:11AM the best I can find is this post, which sort of implies that there won't be a speed increase by not mentioning one :P
My question for the beta testers - What are the passanger mounts acutally for? Why would anyone want to spend 20k on them? Apart from bussing around pre-lvl30 characters, whats the benifit of them? Everyone at least now has an epic ground mount, so why would you want to be a passanger on a motorbike or Mammoth?
What is it that makes it worth 20,000 gold?
This is largely going to be an opinion answer, one that varies from person to person. Not everyone will have one of these, but some will. It might be worth it to one person but not the next. The fact that it comes with vendors is pretty amazing. No matter where you are in the world, you can step outside and restock reagents, or poisons, or pick up some basic crafting materials. That's pretty cool. You can also use it as a better version of auto-follow. If your friend is going AFK, he can just hop on your mammoth and you can get going to your destination, or vice versa. In PvP, your entire party (most of it) can roll up on a huge Mammoth and descend on your opponent all at once. That's pretty neat, and intimidating! If you're a roleplayer, you can have your friend jump on your mount and you can take them for a spin. Cruise for chicks on your fly ride! Or make out in the back seat. You know, if you're into that kinda thing.
Oct 2nd 2008 2:28PM repost from yesterday: i didn't realize it was about to go up.
here's my question:
Do the 3 person mammoths (such as the 20k version from Dalaran)
involve any speed increase beyond the normal 100% epic ground speed
increase? Or is the price-tag simply the result of the vendors/3
person nature of the mount.
