    If anyone has the foggiest idea what an “Eerie Mount” is, please let me know!

    Well, some time ago in a thread bat, owl and raven/crow flying mounts were asked for.

    They had ghost horse mounts since the beginning, so maybe they are making a ghostly pegasus or something now?

    I think it’s “Ear-y” and refers to a leaping bunny mount.

    Now even I am shocked. No new raid zone announced? Eight guilds world wide have at most one kill left in the current content, three have completed it all. I was really expecting to see a new raid zone in a week or two, a month at most. But no announcement here.

      Oh boy a raid zone where only a vastly small percentage of players will ever get in. Hey remember when they rushed PoW into the game despite not even being ready both in stability AND player gear wise? Yeah that was a bad idea. I’m glad they’re not rushing this shit out.

    I heared from a little bird that it will be a furry floppy eared hopping bunny.

    eyrie or aerie
    n
    1. (Zoology) the nest of an eagle or other bird of prey, built in a high inaccessible place
    2. (Zoology) the brood of a bird of prey, esp an eagle
    3. any high isolated position or place

    Basically it can fly :-) Maybe it’s based on an eagle or similar. Still it could be like a dragon or an owl as the term has been used for them as well.

    …actually, given the timing, the bunny mount makes sense. Easter, and all that…

    “Chronoportals event returns”

    Will they be updating this? Or is it still the same group of instances that came out back in 2011 with the same DoV era gear?

      Same instances? Almost certainly
      Same loot? 40/60 likely updated if so the difficulty will be upped as well.

          New Loot? Excellent.. I recall that the gear was useful when it appeared – the sash, and the weapon, whatever they were called, were handy for almost an entire expac period :)
