I love riding through Alterac Valley on a Talbuk.
I also like riding my Bike. but the gait and rhythm of a Talbuk I guess produces a glee in me. I feel tall, and powerful, proud, nobel, majestic even, they feel like the right kind of mount for a Night Elf. I feel like an Azerothian Hero.
I was so relieved to lose my Kitty native Night Elf mounts. They are pretty, but I feel like I am on a moving seesaw, and Eleks run like ballerinas on tippy toes, on a bear I feel like I’m going to fall off because it’s lumbering all over the place, and the camel looks and feels like a false sense of urgency especially when it looks like its about to trip over its own feet.
The bike, it’s a image, an attitude, even a status symbol because wealth goes into making one. I feel like a bad ass rebel, I am noisy, and you can hear the Vroom as I ride past. I can see why Hoons like their noisy cars and their ” Look at mes” It also partially sates my own personal desire to own a motorcycle, and I get to ride vicariously through my avatar
But a Talbuk doesn’t have to be a status symbol, or a brave front, it’s just perfect as is.
