Way to make account wide mounts worthless

Why would I possibly consider buying an obscenely priced Yak when I can't even use it for other characters? If it was account wide at least I could say, "Well it's only a few thousand gold per character". But now?

My mechano hog is on a character I don't use much anymore, and I was really looking forward to using it on anothers. I'm not going to buy another. This goes doubly so for the Vial drake.

Seriously, way to completely undermine this feature.

We have been discussing this issue the last couple of days and we made the call to make the following mounts account-wide:

  • Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
  • Grand Expedition Yak
  • Mechano-Hog
  • Mekgineer's Chopper
  • Sandstone Drake
  • Grand Ice Mammoth
  • Ice Mammoth
  • Jeweled Onyx Panther (all color variants)
  • Cloud Serpents (all color variants)
    At this point, the only mounts that are not account-wide are either class specific or rewarded from PVP. We feel like both these types of mounts should still be character specific.

    Thanks for your feedback on this issue!
