With the impending release of Wraith of the Lick King, many of us are saddened by the removal of the Amani War Bear mount. Blizzard posted that the bear mount was a reward for players who accomplished the feat of the timed quest through Zul’Aman. They say that leaving the bear mount in the game after the level cap will diminish the meaning of the mount.
I can see their point, but how about changing the color or the armor on the bear? Make a cosmetic distinction between the old school war bear mount and the one that drops after the level cap is increased. That way players (like me) who are on the cusp of 70 and have no real chance of getting the bear before the 13th of November can still get a bear mount, just not THE bear mount.
