Oh I agree. It’ll be a short term market drop but it’ll still be long enough to make getting the mount that much harder. However I don’t agree with this assessment of “laziness”. That’s a personal judgement that is biased and wrong. Some people simply have other tastes like raiding, pvp, rp, etc. For them gold farming is merely a means to an end. Not the end in and of itself. However ironically those in that position will likely feel the sting of its removal lessened because of just that.
All that being said, it’s still…perplexing why its being removed from the vendor in the first place. For if so many are convinced that its removal is of little consequence, than why care for its removal to begin with at all? The whole thing is a snake eating its own tail. As for me, I simply find the principle of the thing stupid. Why spend all those dev man hours (which we all paid for) on designing, programing and implementing the thing, only to yoink it arbitrarily? It boggles the mind.
All in all this whole fiasco reminds me of the bald ones one legitimate criticsim of blizzard and by extension, Ion: Lack of communication. Communicate why!
