Its done, I'm gold poor but mount rich!
I got my epic flying mount. I didn't feel fast at first because up in the air I didn't have a point of reference. But flying low to the ground, I could feel how much faster I'm moving.
Ironically, I've been spending most of my time in the Old World where I can't even ride it! Also, one of the side perks was to be able to get from one herb to the next faster, but I recently dropped herbalism for another profession.
Ah well, it feels good to have met a big goal and I'm thinking that was more what it was about for me. I don't have that whoosh, zoom feeling I really was expecting but that's okay.
Since I haven't really had the chance to enjoy my new mount, I should reserve this opinion - but I'll go ahead and share it anyway: If you are happy with your ability to get around in the game so far, I wouldn't worry about getting an epic flying mount. If you have 6000g laying around - your ability to make cash isn't an issue, so go for it! But honestly, taking flightpaths anywhere in Outland doesn't take long. Riding your epic ground mount still gets you around fast and you can jump on your regular flying mount to get to those hard-to-reach places just like you could if it were epic, just a bit slower.
