What in the world are they smoking at the dev team?
The number of people who complain about the cost of an item like this, that's entirely optional and gives no actual advantages over any other player, never ceases to amaze me. Just like those who whined in trade back in BC about the cost of epic flying, when that was comparatively 100 times easier to achieve.Like it or not, but being able to afford this mount (assuming you earned the gold in-game and didn't pay hundreds of IRL bills for tokens) is proof that the owner successfully mastered an in-game skill. Do the complainers get upset about Gladiator mounts and titles, or cutting-edge raiders getting shinies? They really have two choices: decide they can either try to get good at those things to win them for themselves, or just accept that some achievements might be out of reach. The game provides rewards for those with skill and dedication. Gold-making is just another skill one can dedicate themselves to in this game, and this is a pretty sweet prize with some real functionality for those with the knowledge and drive to win at the Auction House.
Pay 2 Win game. Trying to sell more WoW tokens. It's sad.
In Legion I could make 5m gold in few days. Im sure in BoF I could make 5m gold in few days as well.
This is going to make the under cutters even worse. NOW instead of running to ah people can hop on their dinosaur
Ironic... you will need that AH to get back all the gold you wasted on this mount.
How long ago did you stop playing, friend? Garrisons don't have missions for gold for ages now! Plus, the Legion missions only offer gold missions 2x a day in each toon, so it'll take all 22 characters at 110, with enough Class Hall activities and missions, plus their right champions at max ilvl working at full force to raise gold like it used to be in Draenor and enough to buy the mount. Aside of partially passive income, you'd have to play the AH, raid with all of your toons, do all of the WQs both in BI and Argus and find treasure chests. Did I mention that the rares give some gold too? You've been away for quite a while, huh? Are you coming back for BFA, or just for comments? My guild welcomes active players and will be raiding asap! ;)
I actually was just finishing the formatting touches on a long, detailed post about my gold-making journey from MoP to present and how I got my millions of gold, but then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked the darn page crashed and I lost it all. I even had links and references to the Rules of Acquisition!If the players with the gold to buy this gorgeous, half-the-current-gold-cap longneck, then that's five million gold not being used to buy and mark up/resell things you need from the auction house. Think of all the BoEs and consumables that might actually be affordable with that money out of the market for a while!It's absolutely feasible to make millions in the game without a single addon or token or relying solely on NPC followers to do work for you. I made mine through playing with the Auction House in a couple of different areas once I decided I wanted to get rich. It took a few dry spells of having speculative purchases not flip, and a few number-punching mistakes that cost me dearly, but I got there. I'm still raking it in and I play maybe half an hour a day. It's doable, but you've gotta want to do it and be willing to make mistakes.Don't begrudge other people for succeeding. Their fortune (I am so clever) is only your loss if you choose to see it that way. Top-tier raiders work and learn and put in the time to get their rewards. Gladiators earn theirs. Azeroth's Millionaires (gold mages? currencymancers?) do our own form of work for it, too.Join us. We have dinosaurs.
Throws gold at screen.....want it want it....could careless about the AH....
Like with the spider, this pet doesn't really seem to be work 5m gold but hey, I'm sure someone will buy it!
The sad part is the Brutosaur is the best mount in this expansion and yet 5 mil gold is ridiculous cost for it... If your going to up prices on mounts then up the gold on quests given also if there is a way to make a rare or a raid boss drop a non vendor Brutosaur mount would be awesome that way everyone gets it
Or you could use the racial mailbox that Nightborne have. OR you could use that mailbox toy on a Goblin with the portable bank racial. (Ideal bank alt imo: Goblin Mage with this mount and the mailbox toy, with Engineering thrown in for even more teleports!)
