The Mount Debate
I've had this discussion with many other people, so I thought I would open the floor to other viewpoints! The discussion topic: flying mounts and druids.
Some people think they are a waste. After all, our flight form is instant-cast, allows for quick gathering, looks nice and can save you from falling. It's built-in; you only have to pay for flight training and the skill. Who needs a mount when you have that? The only possible reason could be the seasonal achievement that required flying mounts (due to needing to be riding a reindeer).
On the other hand, mounts come in a wide variety of species, color, size and mechanics. Taking an extra second or so to summon a mount is no big deal when you're flying somewhere like Naxxramas or a summoning stone.
Some seem to think special items like the CoS bonus drake mount is "wasted" on druids due to the epic flight form. I know I felt guilty when I won mine, but I ride it constantly just because I love riding drakes. I've been warned off buying the red drake from Wyrmrest because it's not worth the money since everyone has one and I have flight form.
Well, what do you guys think? Is a special mount, such as the blue protodrake, azure drake or CoS drake, wasted on a druid?
