'Mount Adoption Licenses' Now for Sale for Gems, Community Ignites at RNG Nature

'Mount Adoption Licenses' Now for Sale for Gems, Community Ignites at RNG Nature - Guild Wars 2 - MMORPG.com

Yesterday, ArenaNet announced that new "Mount Adoption Licenses" are now available at the Guild Wars 2 Black Lion Trading Company. For 400 Gems, players receive "an available animal at random". Every box is said to contain a unique breed, though players are unable to purchase specific versions. Rather the "drop" from the purchase is randomized. This latter fact has set the community on fire with the GW2 Reddit thread on the subject beating out previous "top threads" from the past.

From the GW2 site description:

We’re pleased to announce the grand opening of the Black Lion Stables! The Black Lion Trading Company has contracted with specialty breeders to offer a wide variety of rare and exotic mounts. Prospective owners can purchase a Mount Adoption License for a single, flat fee to adopt an available animal at random. Every license guarantees the successful adoption of a unique breed, so it’s easy to make room in your heart for all of them.

Mount Adoption Licenses are available individually or in a value pack of 10. During the introductory week only, dedicated collectors can purchase a bundle of 30 Mount Adoption Licenses at a discount and take home every mount breed currently sold through the Black Lion Stables.

From the GW2 Reddit thread where the subject is being hotly debated:

400 gems. For one opportunity for RNG to give you the mount skin you want IF YOU CAN GET IT ON YOUR FIRST TRY WITH ODDS OF 1/30. ANet just gave us the biggest fucking rip off of the game's history. Jumping from mounts being 400 (320) gems per skin with the halloween set to this ridiculous shit when most of these skins are just texture redesign anyways is fucking ridiculous.

Not to mention the 2k gem single skin for jackal what a fucking joke

Edit: Now this post is gilded ANet will you finally listen

Mounts were added in the Path of Fire expansion. The random "adoptions" are reskins of the currently available mounts.

What is your take on the new random chance at specific skins? Have you purchased any adoption licenses? If so, what do you think of the value for the return?

Leave us your thoughts in the comments.

Thanks, anonymous tipster, for the info & Reddit links!
