While naysayers may think corporate greed is the answer, Blizzard tells Kotaku the real reason World of Warcraft mounts have shown up for sale in the company's online store is because that's exactly what the players wanted.
According to an image that briefly appeared in the flash rotation on top of Blizzard's online store, the Celestial Steed mount will soon be joining the World of Warcraft pet store as a purchasable in-game item. Update: They're live!
It was only a matter of time. Blizzard has just put up a pair of in-game pets for World of Warcraft for sale on the Blizzard Store. Would you pay $10 for a Pandaren Monk or a baby Kel'Thuzad?
