Figured you would of already of posted the Red Sphere mount’s Pictures by now. :< btw, Dulfy do you know if this Unlimited bundle will kill of subscriptions? "Ulimited" sounds like a perminate solution to the weekly unlocks…

Any idea if the red sphere is bind on pickup? I was hoping for a red sphere, and I’m pretty bummed that it’s only available as a drop in HM.

All extended content. This includes RotH. Are they nuts or just to stupid to discribe their stuff in the CM!?
