Mwa ha ha... Foolish mortal... The Hutt Cartel OWNS Tatooine! The Hutt Cartel owns ALL!
Ooh! In Elder Scrolls Online, I get magic spells and colossal PvP! That sounds cool, but one question, where do I get a lightsaber?

I'm OK with either method, or some kind of combo method, but you are just way too quick to assume it will be the way you don't like.
Yeah... the advance art shows several dewbacks, 4 different varactyls, and tauntauns not even in game yet.

If Bioware follows pattern... some will be from missions/gathering, some from faction rep, some from rare drops in Ops, and some from the CM.

People need to calm down about the CM IMO. It's here to stay.. it's popular among subscribers.. and it's not the only way mounts enter the game.
Judgments are often inaccurate because the brain relies on cognitive biases over hard evidence. Cognitive bias is the tendency to make irrational judgments in consistent patterns. Researchers have found that cognitive bias wreaks havoc by forcing people to make poor, irrational judgments.

I don't like the way the armoured Dewbacks look. I'd very much like the basic Dewback be along a quest line and the armoured Dewbacks via CM.

And I bet others would like to see exactly the opposite.

^ this would be awesome, taming your own mount.

I don't hate the armored Dewback, but I like the plain ones on tatooine and balmorra more because they look like the ones in episode 4.
PvE theorycrafting has really loosened their standards.

Judging by the success of the new packs, I wouldn't hold my breath for farming Dewbacks. The option would be nice though.

Get real. The Development team was slashed in less then half and the remaining Developers do what there corporate overlords EA tell them. EA says milk the community with the cartel market. They wont do anything else.

Not gonna happen.

You saw people talking about buying loads and loads of cartel packs JUST for the varactyl.

Bioware are gonna put this mount in a random drop box so they can get more money, again.

Like they did with the Tauntaun, right? How dare they not to give us the chance to get the Tauntaun mount other than from a cartel pack! Oh wait...

We have "Hovering Motor Cycles" and everyone wants to ride farm animals?

Its a good idea, but I don't think Dewback's are fast enough to be mounts.

I doubt that we will see any more mount farming in the game any time soon. It would be nice to just be able to buy new mounts from vendors again.
