There’s one mount that I really wanted and yes I caved and bought a mammoth!This mount of awesomeness is the most fun I’ve had in awhile, and got me away from some of the more serious parts of raiding. I was giving free Mammoth rides around Dalaran and discovered something interesting when I decided to jump out of the Dalaran sewer outlet pipe into a huge freefall.I was waiting for the traditional splat… but we lived (yes I could have bubbled, but it was more fun this way)!
How did we survive? Well, the mammoth is actually a vehicle with about 5k health, so the mammoth took the fall while the passengers got off clean. Yay!There are two vendors that come with it - one a reagent and repair vendor and the other a food and drink vendor. The prices are more expensive than if you bought goods off a vendor with whom you are exalted with. Still if you’re in a hurry it’s ultra convenient. Also I don’t have to carry vendor trash in my bags anymore, I just mount up and dump it (this was a fair problem while I was levelling). The main advantage would be for raiding though. Those raiders that forget to repair or restock reagents would instead just get me to go outside the instance and summon the mammoth.
Oh yeah and the price? Well you get over that… eventually.
A friend once said to me:
"You've got a ret pally and a boomkin, Rex go roll an Enhancement Shaman and complete your triangle of fail." .... I didn't have the heart to mention that it was already at level 21.
