well i guess courage the battle pet probably has a hidden renown requirement like this also then. ugh that leaves a bad taste in my mouth for some reason.
Dang and I killed it today as Renown 31
I wonder if the Slime Serpent also has some dumb and arbitrary requirement like this.
lol what a joke, why would a rare spawn's drop be tied to renown? All this accomplished is getting Necros to waste their time every day hoping this mount exists up until now.
oh FFS, and I killed that rare on 4 alts each time I've seen it each day...And there was no chance the mount would drop yet? annoyed!
Mounts requiring covenants to even get let alone use is a bad system that can and will get worse in the future, requiring multiple alts in each covenant to even have a chance at these is horrible design and only is used to make us play longer
This just feels so bad that there's been a hidden requirement that we couldn't have known for so long. Like, what's the point of holding back even the possibility of getting it for months? This is unlike secrets that have convoluted ways to get to items, and for which there are at least clues hinting at what needs to be done. Players will see this mount in the collection tab, see that it drops from a daily rare, and just start farming it. Only to then find out they regularly wasted their time every day for months because it was unobtainable the whole time.Just why.
There seem to be 2 options here:It was added to Tahonta' loottable in the Hotfix that went out this morning.orIt actually is Renown 32 that unlocks the drop. This goes well with the fact that we havn't seen any drops since Beta where people last had this high Renown.Only thing that speaks against this is the fact that we have had Renown 32 for 3-4 days now, without any confirmed drops.This could be skewed a bit by the fact that noone bothered to actually kill Tahonta because we "knew it didnt drop". Xhanon only randomly killed Tahonta cause he was in the area doing a pet battle. And then had the drop.Looking forward to more data. A lot of people are trying on low Renown lvl60 Necrolords and on their Necro Fate chars around lvl51. Just a matter of time before we get some good data.
Feels like Necrolords are getting a lot of Necro only mounts. Way more than the other covenants.
I guess Blizzard really liked the player response to the hidden artifact skin gating in Legion.Which is strange since I remember a lot of really angry people that spent a lot of time grinding for something they didn't know they were unable to get.
I did this for the Gieger every day on 2 characters to find out 2 weeks ago that it's Necro only.
Would be good with a list of covenant restricted mounts.
Random drop mounts shouldn't be tied to renown, period. The ones available to covenants only should come from the covenant that they come from. The frog mount drops in Ardenweald, but it's not Night Fae only. The gorger mount drops in Revendreth, but it's not Venthyr only. There is absolutely no reason that members of other covenants can't figure out how to sit on a docile animal.Regardless, glad to see 1/4th of the playerbase can finally get it now. Even if it is locked behind a stupid limitation.
