11am Friday – Your last chance to grab a ticket to #GeeknRolla

Yup, Blizzard is selling World of Warcraft mounts now. Two of them have just gone live on their little online store there, Celestial Steed and Lil’XT. The former is $25 and the latter is $10.

I already wrote a rambling thing about Blizzard selling in-game items, so I’m not about to do it again. The gist of the argument, if you can even call it an argument, is that I don’t mind if Blizzard sells cosmetic items, but they have to be cosmetic. If you can buy some crazy powerful sword or dagger or stave, well, that’s Not Good.

Now, I shan’t be buying any such cosmetic items, but that’s just because I’m viciously anti-microtransactions.

The Steed does look pretty cool, though, I’ll give them that.
