I think the only reason people are going to be grinding for this mount is for the achievement and just to show-off in SW, etc. Most people will be riding dragons and such, people won't be using this one that often...unless it can fly.
It never ceases to amaze me how many people WHINE over the simplest of things. I think it's pretty cool to pay homage to someone.. just enjoy the game and quit complaining over things that ARE going to be enjoyable for others. Im glad that Blizz pays attention to little details and recognizes players, I think it's great. I think those that complain about it are a little jealous its not them.
There is another quest.. Hunting Practice where you take the cub to snow mounds and let him pounce on hares.
I'm glad I got my mount grind finished a couple of weeks ago. The little cub companion pet looks so cute running behind the purple kitty mount!
Agree with Kvasi.Old model could consume a bit more time, but you could choose when you want to spend that time. No one was forcing you to do it all at once (what many people were QQing about and what is the most common "reason" why they welcome this change). Now you have to do daily every day. Old version allowed you to say "I´m not in the mood of doing mount rep today" and you didn´t lose any time. Also, this forces you to travel to Winterspring and do the daily every time you feel like doing something for your mount. Old model allowed you to spend anywhere from 10 minutes to 10 hours, based on your current mood and time available.I liked the old model more, much more, but I´m not going to QQ. (I would be going to if mount was gone completelly :P)
