I named her Spiffles and she flaps glitter.
But I digress. Why aren't people happy when Blizzard tries to donate even a portion of their funds to charity?
This isn't the Cinder Kitten, no. 100% of the proceeds do not go towards Make A Wish. In fact, if you don't buy the pet, nothing goes to Make a Wish. The mount has nothing to do with charity other than the fact that if you bundle the pet and dragon, you get a 5 dollar discount.
In a way, that makes the pet free. You get the mount, you donate 5 dollars to charity, and the other 5 dollars that would have gone towards buying the pet is discounted completely. So you get a mount and donate some to MAW. Should make people happy, right?
Blizzard is obviously a great and terrible tyrant for only cutting 5 dollars to a charity. How dare they pay their designers for putting hard work into giving players a mini pet that gives you free booze and a dragon that changes colors on a whim, has a new /mountspecial animation, and sheds blue and purple sparkly glitter when it flaps. The designers obviously don't deserve extra for their hard work in making any of this come together into a new skin (though yes, it is the old drake skeleton but FAR from a simple recolor).
I'm with the people who want to say kudos to Blizzard for donating anything at all to Make A Wish, which is not a disaster relief, but something that they've taken a keen interest in over the years and has taken some of its requests quite seriously. Ashes of Al'ar, anyone? Even though they can't throw everything at every program out there, they also gave a link to the current disaster at the bottom of the Fey Dragon/Pet combo page. Stating that the company itself is also matching its employee donations to the relief efforts internally.
Thank you for supporting and continuing to support, Blizzard.
