I find this wrong in so many ways. Please ban this addon.


This is what it now shows in game.

This player wasted $25 real dollars on this terrible mount. This player is therefore likely to have wasted money buying their character online.

Before anyone freaks out, read Arx official post: http://www.gearscoreaddon.com/newsitem.php?id=19

It's a joke. He's joking.

Enjoy. =)

lol I personally find it quite amusing and I do have the star pony. lol I think the nub tales video that said the horse was made from the tears of noobs was equally funny tho. people really need to stop taking humor so personally.

Props to GS, Woot. Who can say GS factoring in the Celestial Steed would be misleading?

The fact that someone actually thinks that is just funny. Really you think I bought my character because I bought something I like?


HA!

No believe me. PLENTY of people actually think this. I see people talking about it in trade chat. I get whispers from people telling me im a waste of space because i spent 25 dollars on the game. Sad really.

Hey I have the celestial steed, would have been great if this was true! I love using "the Patient" as my title.

Sorry but I do think that mount is a waste of money. But I won't go and tell that to every person I see on it, cause it's their money to waste however they want to.

The fact is people spend real world money on faction transfers, realm transfers, recustomization, pets, and even this mount. And this is not including the monthly fee or the actual software we purchased from Blizz. And then we have the ones who actually spend money to attend blizzcon or purchase the loot cards. Everyone wastes money on this "game" but then that's what hobbies are for. :)

Unfortunately, there are players in the game taking this joke seriously.

It's quite sad but I do not want someone pointing their finger at me to tell me I'm a noob because I spent money on this game. Looks like they should be looking at the other four fingers pointing back at them unless of course they aren't paying for their account. Which is another story entirely.

The type of people who take everything so seriously and get offended by this joke (and is it a joke), are the people I want an add on to warn me about so I know not to take them to my raids.

Personal opinion about it aside, if you like the horse, then buy the horse and ride it to your hearts content. If someone whispers you about it, then /ignore them.

No believe me. PLENTY of people actually think this. I see people talking about it in trade chat. I get whispers from people telling me im a waste of space because i spent 25 dollars on the game. Sad really.


They thought this before the add on changed too. Don't blame Arx for that. Just blame him for contributing to the "GS OR GTFO" attitude that raid leaders have adopted. (I say contributing because Wow-heroes.com help too.)

Wow, some of you are really defensive about not having purchased your toon. Personally, the horse looks like an Ally mount to me.

For those who don't like GS because people use it to narrow the field of invites to raids, would you rather add 30 minutes pre-raid to inspect everyone? Would you rather wait until you get to the first boss to find out that no matter how great of a player they are, they will be a drag on the team because they have not invested time in getting gear?

There are other add-ons that used to allow reviewing a toon pretty easily, but they were not as user friendly as GS. Simple mouse over gave you a number you could use to know that the toon had the capability of doing what was asked of them. The number said nothing about the person behind the toon, or if they were capable of doing what was asked.

The people I see complaining the most about GS are those with alts that are WAY undergeared wanting in on things their stupid alt shouldn't be attempting yet. They want their alt carried through instances it has no business being in so they can gear it faster.

Final note, if your horde riding the shiney pony you deserve to be ridiculed.

Idiots that get that emo about having NOT purchased their accounts probably got their account on craigs list.

Are comments like that really needed? The fact that people like you are so narrow minded and well childish for lack of better words is just plain sad. People get defensive because thats something pretty harsh to be accused of. Especially when you haven't seen me(them) play my(their) characters.

Ridicule me some more though i am liking the attention. Here is some more for you to go off of.

I have 102 mounts
and about 98 pets

Please tell me how I don't have a life. Oh and also tell me how I purchased my husband off of ebay/craigslist too. That will top it off nicely :)
