Diablo 4 Welcomes the Lich King’s Invincible Mount from WoW

Diablo 4, Blizzard's latest installment in the iconic action RPG series, has always been a hotbed for player engagement and discussion. The game's in-game shop, which regularly updates its offerings, has been a focal point for many of these discussions. The latest addition to this shop is bound to stir the pot even further: the Lich King’s Invincible mount from World of Warcraft (WoW).

The Power of Platinum

Diablo 4's in-game shop operates with a currency known as Platinum. Players can acquire Platinum either through real-money transactions or by earning premium rewards from the Battle Pass. However, the shop has been a point of contention among players, especially regarding its pricing strategy.

For instance, Blizzard faced criticism when they provided 666 Platinum to Season 1 Battle Pass purchasers, only for players to discover that the least expensive item in the shop was priced at 800 Platinum. Such discrepancies have led to discussions about the game's monetization approach and the perceived value of in-game items.

The Lich King’s Steed Enters the Fray

The recent addition to the Diablo 4 shop is the Lich King’s Invincible mount, a beloved and iconic figure from the World of Warcraft universe. This addition was first spotted by Twitch streamer Toweliee and subsequently reported by Icy-Veins.

The Invincible Aspect is available as part of a bundle, priced at a hefty 2,500 Platinum. To put this into perspective, players would need to shell out $25 to acquire the full set, assuming they don't already have some Platinum saved up. The bundle is comprehensive, including the mount itself, the Bard of Undying Loyalty mount armor, the Domination Helm trophy, and the Echo of Frostmourne trophy. Additionally, players who purchase this bundle will unlock a unique charge animation for the Invincible Aspect.

Blurring the Lines Between Worlds

This isn't the first time Diablo 4 has intertwined its universe with that of World of Warcraft. Previously, WoW celebrated the return of Diablo with crossover events, offering items and rewards inspired by the Diablo universe. The introduction of the Lich King’s Invincible mount in Diablo 4's shop further solidifies the notion that these two iconic Blizzard worlds will continue to intersect in various ways.


The addition of the Lich King’s mount to the Diablo 4 shop is a testament to Blizzard's commitment to offering players unique and exciting content. However, it also raises questions about the game's monetization strategy and the value proposition of in-game items. As Blizzard continues to update and evolve Diablo 4, it will be interesting to see how the player community responds to such integrations and what other surprises the developers have in store.
