This is a much needed change. All I can say is---FINALLY.

Homogenizing? ...tell me where's the tauren plains running and the worgen cart?
I like this change, honestly. I don't think WoW suffers for it. I found the Horde quests for the mount to be well-done and I was happy when it was released (I was Horde at the time so maybe I was just excited about a new mount). Really though, I did the Winterspring grind back in the day twice, but I'm not going to miss it nor do I think other players should 'suffer' through it. Raising a mount from childhood over a timespan vs. grinding until your eyeballs bleed for a mount--the latter simply didn't showcase Blizzard's designing potential.
I wonder what is more cataclysmic to Winterspring: Deathwing melting the ice cap or 100 level 85 players roaming the country side.
