I would pay $50 for a flying passenger mount. Blizz store needs passenger mounts!


You can do this. Use the Refer-a-Friend process to start a second account, pay for two months of game time, get the RAF flying passenger mount on your main. That's how I got my X-53 rocket. I had an old code for a free account, so I didn't even have to buy the Battlechest.

ummm, no.

Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that everything is "bound to server". With recent exceptions to titles, mounts, achievements and pets.

I'm all for account wide use of heirlooms.

Binds to battle.net account IS NOT equal to Account Wide.

Account wide means can be used by any character on your account.
Account bound means cannot be traded/sold to other accounts.

Why is this so difficult to understand?


Actually, why is it so difficult for you to understand what people are saying?

Something that is account wide should be available across the whole account - and, yes, on other servers. Each different server I play on is not a different account.

Account bound does mean that it can't be traded or sold to different accounts.

You seem to be the confused one here.


Tell me where did it EVER say that battle.net account bound means account wide?

Go sit in the corner with the other dunces.

It's hilarious how you seem to thing that Account Bound and Account Wide are mutually exclusive terms, and endlessly cute how you call everybody else stupid.

They are mutally exclusive.

The the world is full of retards, you just proved it.

For example I have companion pets that are account wide, but I can put them in a cage and sell/trade them, thus they are not account bound.

And I don't call "everybody else" stupid. Only those who can't grasp this.

Obey seems to think calling people names solves problems and gets his point across.

Makes you sound uneducated and a jerk.

I already have 106 mounts. I could care less about mounts anymore.

All I need is my horse and my proto drake.

To answer your question, the Reins of the Grand Expedition Yak is account-wide.

With the exception of PvP reward mounts, all mounts are account-wide. Mounts that a character is eligible to use will be displayed in your Mount Journal. Certain mounts have profession/faction/class requirements and will only be available for characters that meet them.

As an example, Horde/Alliance faction mounts will only show up in the Mount Journals for characters of that faction.

If you’re interested in learning more about what types of mounts, pets, or achievements are account-wide, [url="https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/world-of-warcraft-accountwide-pets-mounts-and-achievements"]check out this knowledge base article[/url].


So what if I have my mechano-hog on my paladin blood elf, and I change factions to alliance (he was the original character who I made the hog for); will all my alliance characters gain the chopper and my horde characters lose out on their sweet ride? I'm just sayin, the faction equivalents of all mounts should transfer regardless; meaning I have mostly alliance characters, so imagine my surprise after I logged in to see my chopper on my characters, only to be told that it is account wide, then (through many emails and attaining a final clarification after an additional two calls and three more emails) to find out it is faction-limited was a bit of a shock to say the least, and a bit of a disappointment. Now I have to either go without (it's only a mount whatever but still..it's a SUH-WEET mount), pay the gold to get one on my alliance side (despite appearantly everyone else in this game, I don't have a silly amount of gold kicking around-in fact the 6k I DO have is now on the pally lol), or pay 50 bucks to change and xfer (well I guess just 35 to change to alliance). Kind of a bummer to get a single mount, so some clarification would be appreciated.

Thanks, and great expansion!!!!!

According to blizzards FAQ for faction transfers, mounts no longer transfer with the character transferring, so you wouldn't get the alliance equivelent of the hog, but the hog would stay on your horde mount tab.

Shame really, as I was thinking about transferring just for the Mammoth and Hog as well.

It's a matter of perspective: one side says we've NEVER been able to trade cross realm, so the thought of it not *really* being BoA is dumb; the other side says that BoA literally means "Bound on Account" and since the item(s) in question are not truly accessible from anywhere (read: realm) on the account, then they're not truly account bound. It's perspective more than anything, choosing one side or the other doesn't make you an idiot. GC has said multiple times they're looking to address the issue, which I think both sides can agree on: I want to use my heirloom items on any toon I create, regardless of realm. BoA vs. BoRA is a matter of semantics.


You're confusing ACCOUNT BOUND vs. ACCOUNT WIDE.
You on the idiot side.


I don't appreciate being called an idiot, I was attempting to have a civilized conversation and your remark was uncalled for. Also, it's "you're", not "you". If you're going to call someone an idiot, make sure you use the correct grammar in doing so.

On topic, if you would like to argue the semantics of account wide vs. account bound, I'm open to discuss them.

Mounts

Account-wide mounts work similarly to account-wide pets. Unlike the Pet Journal, the Mount Journal will only display mounts that are accessible by the character you are currently playing.

Mounts have the following restrictions:
Profession-restricted mounts can only be used by characters with the appropriate profession level though they will appear for all characters on the account.

Faction-specific mounts can only be used by characters of that faction.

Class-specific mounts can only be used by characters of that class.

PvP reward mounts can only be used by the character that obtained them originally.


The Winged Steed of the Ebon Blade is not useable by all DK's on the account. I have 2 DK's on my one account. The one DK can use the mount the other one can not, even though he has the proper flying trained and everything.

Blizzard itself created the confusion when they created "Bind to Account" pets and mounts that spawned in the mailbox of every toon on your account (regardless of when they were created, or on what server) and then used the exact same nomenclature to describe "Bind to Account" heirlooms that worked in a much different way. No one is an "idiot" simply for finding inconsistency in that.
