If you ever caught yourself saying, “Spend money on World of Warcraft’s cash shop? When pigs fly, mister,” then your day has come.
To celebrate the Lunar New Year, Blizzard has put another $25 mount on its store to sell. The Hogrus mount is a pig that can sprout golden wings and fly around. The studio stressed that the purchase of this mount will be account-wide, so all of your characters can get one.
“Today, Pandaren across Azeroth consider Hogrus to be a sign of prosperity and great things to come,” Blizzard posted. “You would be wise to seek his blessing as you pursue your own fortune, wherever the four winds may take you.”
Blizzard’s calling this mount the “Swine of Good Fortune,” but the question is — is that fortune yours, or the studio’s? Because one party there is gaining $25 and one is losing it.
