As the holiday season continues, even the World of Warcraft stops to celebrate the festive time of year with the annual Feast of Winter Veil. The recurring event themed around Christmas in Azeroth does not start under December 16, but the celebration starts early with several a Blizzard store sale on several mounts and pets.
All mounts and pets, excluding the newer Brightpaw pet and the Mystic Runesaber mount, are now 50 percent off for a limited time. Pets are normally $10 and are discounted to $5 during the sale, and mounts that are usually $25 are just $12.50 during the Winter Veil sale. According to Battle.net, the sale will last until January 4.
Mounts that are a part of the sale include unique favorites like the Armored Bloodwing mount, the only bat mount available to players at this time. Other special mounts that cannot be found elsewhere in the game include the Grinning Reaver, the Enchanted Fey Dragon, and the Swift Windsteed. Some mounts, like the Iron Skyreaver, have less extravagant variants available within the game.
World of Warcraft mounts and pets are not the only thing discounted in the Blizzard store right now. The base game of World of Warcraft including all of the expansions, expect for Warlords of Draenor, is just $4.99 right now. The current expansion is just $12.49 now and that includes a free character boost to level 90, too. As the Inquisitr reported this 75 percent off sale will not last forever. These sales are expected to wrap up on January 4 like the mount and pet sale. Unfortunately, no character services are on sale currently.
World of Warcraft players can enjoy the sales and revelry while they last. Bonus events will keep many occupied on a week-to-week basis, but the next expansion will not release until summer 2016. Legion is dated for launch “on or before September 21” and will add a number of major changes and additions to the game. The new Demon Hunter hero class, an increased level cap to 110, Artifact weapons, class order halls, and much more are included in the expansion. Not to mention, the transmogrification system is drastically being changed letting players collect skins in a UI collection rather than having to keep each item in their inventory or banks.
