Wings in Our Future?

Disclaimer: Before you read this, don't get excited. It's wishful thinking!

When I first read about the Blizzard 'pet' store exploring the possibility of selling an XP buff for certain regions and then the announcement of transmog helms, I started thinking about the other things that might become available with the introduction of more micro-transactions. I remembered a post from a couple of years ago on MMO-Champion for April Fools Day.

  • Each set of wings costs $19,99 and can be bought separately.
  • You can buy both sets for $29,99.
  • Just like any Flying mount, the wings require Expert Riding and their speed will scale up to 310% depending on your riding skill.

As far as the XP buff and the transmog helms go, I am not really interested... but wings? Ok, Blizz would be getting some more of my money!

  1. Reminds me of the Diablo 3 Wings for having Collectors Edition of D3 and S2. I really like those ones. But I like this idea of using them to fly in this old April Fool.

    2. But I'm not a big fan of wings tbh. I dunno why. Maybe just not on my tauren. The whole holy cow thing is too cheeesy - I dont' even like the idea of tauren priests.

    3. When Veluxia was a Tauren, it was so weird. They are too big to be priests! When my Tauren Paladin pops her wings, it's kind of cool but they are so tiny and dainty and she is so... big and clumsy! I kind of only really like Tauren healers as Druids, anything else seems unnatural! I do like my pally though, she is a tank. :D

  4. My Druid doesn't want them as she has wings but everyone else would so pay for these! Flying Warlocks, doesn't get any better!

  5. I remember that April fools joke. I especially like the look of the white wings and can see using them on my priest for sure. Maybe one day...

    1. Mounts would become very neglected though, I imagine. For now it's probably good we can't buy wings!
