WoW players should be happy to know that another $25 mount has arrived to the game, and it’s a flying pig.
This new mount is called “Hogrus, Swine of Good Fortune” and yes, it is a flying pig. If this doesn’t tell you that Blizzard is slowly slipping into insanity we don’t know what will. Of course, this mount was added because of the Lunar New Year celebration. Most WoW players are wondering, when are the new races coming? You know, the Kul Tiran and Zandalari? Not anytime soon? That appears to be the answer right now, as those races should have arrived by now.
We know that adding a mount is a much simpler task than adding a whole race, but why in the world would they even add a new $25 mount in the first place? Is that something players would gush about? Most probably not.
The description of the mount definitely describes it as something that brings fortune to the one that sees it, or something like that. This is the official description of the mount from the BattleNet Shop:
Legends say that in his hour of deepest doubt, Emperor Shaohao, last ruler of the Pandaren Empire, was visited by Hogrus, Swine of Good Fortune, as he meditated upon his people’s future. Today, pandaren across Azeroth consider Hogrus to be a sign of prosperity and great things to come. You would be wise to seek his blessing as you pursue your own fortune, wherever the four winds may take you.
WoW players, what are your thoughts on this? You’ve been waiting for those new Battle of Azeroth for quite a while now. How does a new mount make you feel? It’s a flying pig, so we guess that it is pretty unique. If you have $25 to spare.
