Dreams do come true, in World of Warcraft, thanks to the recent addition of the Celestial Steed flying mount. Celestial Steed? A new flying mount? Your probably asking what I did to obtain such a elusive piece of the heavens. Well, I can tell you that I did not:
- Complete an epic quest
- Slay a 1000 Murlocs
- Or, visit the Galactic Temple high above Darkshore (surely you’ve been there!)
No, dear readers, I simply paid $25 for this amazing downloadable addition — I love you Blizzard! –. I honestly think that the starry night sky shines brighter; that the very heavens gleam in approval of my new epic flying mount. Eat your heart out haters!
Still there? Good. I have a confession to make, I really didn’t spend $25 on a virtual horse. Why? Well…
- $25 is almost as much as paying for a 2 month subscription.
- You could buy 2 1/2 Pandaren Monks for the price of one girly-looking horse named Sparkle Fairy.
While I understand the want/need for downloadable content (money!), I just cannot bring myself to spend $25 for a virtual horse. For those of you who have, shame on you! You are supporting a practice that developers do not need to get used to. So quit it! NOW! You don’t need Sparkle Fairy. At all. So move along. NOW!
