Notes

  • Available only to players on realms located in North America, Europe, and Korea.[1]
  • Players who purchase it receive a code similar to that of the loot cards. When you enter the code in your account all characters are mailed a copy of this pet, as well as any future characters you create.[1]
  • Unlike other mounts that scale to your riding skill, if your character owns any 310% speed mount then the Celestial Steed will also move at 310% speed.
  • Though the mount is adjusted to your riding skill and location, it only does so when you mount up. For instance, if you mount up in Dalaran, you will have a non-flying mount. If you then ride into Krasus' Landing it will not automatically turn into a flying mount. To fly, you will need to dismount and mount up again, just like Magic Brooms in Hallow's End.
  • As of the date of release, those using old graphics cards or using fixedFunction will see odd graphics on the model for this mount.[3]
  • Since it's initial release, the mount has provided many negative results. Most have been targeted towards the belief that Blizzard will try and market mounts and other non-necessary items such as pets. Many players often view "Real money for pixels" as being a way to show off, and is seen as unfair to the overall population that the items must be bought, instead of being earned in-game. City trade is often where arguments take place and evolve into "Flame Wars" over the matter.
