Apr 15th 2010 5:53PM My personal reason behind not buying it is because I do not like this trend of only having the coolest looking stuff available through real world purchase. I personally love non-combat pets and mounts, they are something which I really love about the game. If blizzard continues to have the coolest looking ones only available through external purchase, then it kind of ruins the game for people like me.
Also, I really do not like the way the games industry is going with not all of the content being included with the initial game purchase. Developers have increasingly begun to see how much of a game they can take out and then offer as DLC/microtransactions etc.
The only reason that a lot of the coolest mounts/pets which can be exclusively acquired through playing the game are available this way is because the microtransaction system was not set up yet (at least in wow). Now that the store is operational, I think that nearly all the coolest stuff will be available through this means.
