My warlock on his very own Nether Drake. =)
Okay, okay, so it wasn't really a server first. Hell, it's not even really my warlock's mount (QQ). But thanks to the good engineers over at Bliz, the new v2.1 patch, and a broken, buggy quest line, I got to enjoy flying one of these beauties all around Outland for a good while today. Lemme just say that these things are LARGE, and their animation and sound effects are just FABulous. It is totally the mount I pictured an epic flyer to be, and it drew quite a crowd while I was parked in front of the Scryer bank for a short time. Reactions were mixed, ranging from the gawkers and cheerers to the haters and jealous types (hearing the word "hacker" on the day a major patch is released is always hilarious). I'm sure it was motivating for many at the very least, as it was for me. All in all, it was a very good time. =)
See you all on the Netherwing Plateau!
