Mammoth Mount!
I would love love LOVE if we could upgrade the vendors to sell level 85 food and water.
If someone or a blue has posted this somewhere with information please link.
I have yet to find anything about this. :(
Any response would be awesome! TY!
I'd gladly pay a few k to upgrade it.
Agreed.
Shameless Bump to see if Blues read this. :(

We always listen. We also take forum posts in context with the feedback and observations derived from other sources to get a broader perspective.


Listen to meeeeeeee. :(

I totally agree, I have a Mammoth mount on my druid.. even then I asked that question. Now I consider getting one for this guy, but I'm still up in the air about that decision.
If I say that Daxxarri lied about "listening" to us, would he respond?
I mean no harm. Just looking for an answer. :(

It's only good to vendor items now, update it with new food/water. :D

Even a fee of 5k would suffice.

Yes Yes Yes! :(
The multi-seater mammoths have a very Northrend-specific feel to them, so we don't necessarily want to just straight update their vendors. We like the idea of having mounts with usable vendors in general, though, and are looking into the possibility of adding new ones in the future (ones that would provide higher level food and drinks). There are already a few ideas incubatin', but nothing that we can reveal just yet.
Soooo, no updates for the 20k mammoth, but hang on folks! We'll get you a new shiny money sink with useful vendors.
Just an idea, but how about making the new shiny money sink and an available update for the Mammoth that costs quite a bit so it is more useful again.
Kinda sucks for the folks who dished out all that gold.
If the mammoths get updated, I want to be able to buy a custom paint job for my chopper...

Like a class specific paint instead of faction specific...

Just imagine, a black & purple bike with a skull instead of a lion/horde crest...


The ShadowBolt Bike... <3
Please make it so that I can drop mana tide totems from the back of the mammoths. It might help increase my raid usefulness.

Thanks!

You make it sound like you never got any use out of the mount to begin with. Wow..

Translation: You wasted your gold on an item that is usable for that expansion only. We have no plans to update the vendors for that mount, we would instead prefer that you waste more gold for the newest mount coming this expansion (maybe).

Not necessarily. For example, I got my mammoth on 2nd day of wrath release. I freaking love it, especially not dying when you jump off a cliff. I scured so many people with it.
I don't see a problem with it. These mounts aren't "required" for anything. They are a convenience or a status symbol or both. Nothing more.

That was so fun!

A friend of mine got the mammoth early too, we'd fly up to the floaty towers above Dalaran...

Hop on the mammoth...

& he would leap off the tower...

We'd fall for like 5 mins & land in Crystalsong Forest without a scratch, then keep on running around!

I miss that :(

Please update the vendors. And add any new fun mount/vendor stuff you want too.

Why do you guys always assume the worst out of a blue post? It was your choice to buy the mammoth. No one held you against your will, and forced you to buy said mount. I actually agree with Lylirra - it had a really Northrend specific feel.

I don't think I'd like seeing a mammoth with rocket boosters flying around Orgrimmar any time soon. While the vendors can be updated just.. No flying. Please. No flying mammoths.
