NoxyChu :: Celestial Steed Comic

Celestial Steed Comic by NoxyChu

There’s been a lot of fuss and discussion over the unveiling of the Celestial Steed in the Blizzard Store, and the fact that one can be yours for $25 USD if you have the cash to blow on it. I think the above summarizes my feelings on the matter entirely, although I haven’t dropped the cash on one just yet. I’ve considered it, but the price is a little steep for me. But that’s just for me – if you want one, can afford it, and want to, then by all means I wholeheartedly endorse you buying and riding your shiny star pony for ever and ever.

But the comic above from the lovely Noxychu, whose art I absolutely adore (seriously, go see her work, then buy commissions from her), brings together the fuss over the Celestial Steed with one of my favorite flash games ever in the history of ever, Robot Unicorn Attack, in a collision of epic proportions. I love it.

Now then, who’s gotten their shiny star pony?

Celestial Steed and Lil’ XT Available to Purchase!


Remember when I stumbled on the above video of the Celestial Steed? At the time we had no idea where it would come from, but now we know all too well – we got the word from today that the Celestial Steed and Lil’ XT are both available to purchase in the Blizzard Store.

The Celestial Steed mount is available to purchase for $25.00 US, and the Lil XT pet is available for $10.00 US. Both of them will work at whatever riding level you have, so you don’t have to wait until you level up your riding skill to even use the Celestial Steed, for example.

This will likely re-inflame debate over micro-payments and pay-to-play items in a game like World of Warcraft; but for those of us who really don’t care all that much, we can just sit back, drop the cash if we have it, and enjoy the pretty.
