North The Mage started this petition to Blizzard Entertainment

This petition has a simple aim: to ensure that Classic World of Warcraft does not deviate from a historical recreation: a game where unarmored mounts existed.

Prior to patch 1.4 (Which would correspond to phase 1 of Classic Wow) many races has access to "unarmored" epic mounts- epic mounts that were nearly identical to the level 60 mounts but had unique skins that were only available early in the game.

The developers of Classic Wow responded to a popular public sentiment by adding progressive item addition, in their own words:

"Developers have scoured through vendor lists and treasure tables for items that were added in patches, and then attached them to the staged content unlock plan."

So, if an item were out in a specific patch, according to their proposed plan, the item would be available in the corresponding stage.

THE ONLY NOTABLE GOD DAMN EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE IS UNARMORED MOUNTS- these harmless reskins which were available in classic WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE. And the reason given by a blizzard employee was essentially 'we want people to play the game like I do, and unarmored mounts will force tons of new players to rush to 60 for their first journey to 60,' the exact quote is below.

"We know some people are interested in them, but we don't want to put them in for a limited period of time, because we didn't want to influence people through their first leveling experience... We don't want people to feel like they have to rush. If you want to level slowly and enjoy the journey, you should. That's how I like to play"

Blizzard should not be telling people how to play the game they are re-implementing: in the words of Ion Hazzikostas, "The second we start to substitute our modern judgement... we are deviating from our goal of a historical recreation of the game as it was." -https://youtu.be/hhKkP8LryYM?t=1918

Ensure that Blizzard does not make changes that have no purpose- ensure that modern Blizzard does not tell us how to play classic wow- ensure that those sick, rare, ivory raptors are available to those who want them, because they were available in vanilla.
