WoW drives six-month subs with a feathered dragon

The Sylverian Dreamer can show you the world — shining, shimmering splendor! And it can be all yours for the low, low cost of $77.94.
With less than two months to go until WoW Classic launches and hot on the heels of Patch 8.2, Blizzard is pushing World of Warcraft subscriptions in a big way. The studio hopes to lock players in to a discounted six-month sub — that’s the aforementioned $78 price tag — and is willing to throw in a feathered dragon mount as incentive. The Dreamer also can be purchased a la carte at $25, making it the latest “sparklepony” to arrive in the cash shop.
This mount has an artistic backstory: “An artist in the magical city of Dalaran fell asleep on her brush and dreamed of painting a beautiful feathered dragon. Her artwork leapt from the page, and when she awoke, she found the Sylverian Dreamer sleeping gently beside her.”
Hotfixes aplenty continue to roll in as Blizzard fine-tunes Rise of Azshara. The studio also wants to make sure that players are up to speed on the new Heart of Azeroth essences
