The new elekk is stunning. My paladin isnt my main, but i do envy the draenei, they are the only Paladin Race with a Unique looking Paladin mount. im actually considering Tfering my Paladin to ally just to get it.
With Patch 4.0.3 all Draenei Paladins, even those with the Charger Feat of Strength that clearly states; "Completed the quest to obtain a Charger", have had their Chargers removed from their inventories and replaced with Elekks. I feel that those of us who earned our Chargers deserve the option to choose between the Charger that we earned and the Elekk being forced upon us. Blizzard has told me that the only way to recover my Charger is to pay them $25 to race change to human. They also told me to go air my concerns on their forums, but so far at least 7 of the threads on this topic, consisting of hundreds of posts each, have been deleted, as have many of the positive posts in the remaining threads, while leaving the troll posts intact. So I bring my plight to you good people. Do you believe that Paladins, regardless of their race, that earned their Chargers should be allowed to keep them?
I understand what you are saying but what is the cutoff? Do they give that option just to the people that have the Feat of Strength? Do they have the ability to tell who got the riding skill by X date in order to give them the option? That seems like a lot of work for one race and one class. The former sys admin in me groans at the thought of combing through that data.
But I'm sure that if enough people raise their voice loud enough Blizz will do something.

The answer your question Feletrix....Yes I do think that those that actually did the quest chain to earn there charger, SHOULD be able to keep it. That quest was a pain and made the mount that much more special.
Yes, if one earned a mount, it should not be taken from them, unless there's a faction or class change involved.

The forum over at mmo-champion allowed me to create polls, so I created 2 of them in the Class Discussions/ Paladin forum. the 1st was a simple Yes/No poll asking if Paladins with the Charger Feat of Strength should be allowed to keep them. Surprisingly, even in a Paladin forum, the results are pretty much a tie. This intrigued me, so I created a second poll, this one comprised of all of the arguments that were made for and against this issue when I was being trolled mercilessly over at the WoW forums. The results of this second poll are rather interesting and I invite all of you to take a look. I would post a link to it, but I'm not sure if doing so would violate the ToS of this forum and I seek not the wrath of the Mighty Kazeyonoma :O

The thing that you're forgetting is that draenei look SO SILLY on a charger. A goat riding a horse?! Ridiculous! This is half the reason my bf race-changed his draenei pally to a dwarf.
the thing that has realy got me angry is that before, with the exception of the stormwind bank, the paly mount could get into any door they wanted. now there is no door in basically the entire city that we can get through without dismounting. with such a massive expansion coming out, would it have been such a big undertaking to make sure that the standard mount for a race of paladins can make it into places without casting a spell or right clicking a buff?
