Indeed great people, I just got the new Goobbue mount that came in yesterday's patch. Very easy to obtain as well... find the NPC, click on NPC to hear some narrative, and profit with your new mount.
Remember the image of the job-exclusive gear shown in Yoshi-P's last letter just before Christmas? (see below). The Wandering Minstrel NPC's gear and weapon does look quite similar to the Bard exclusive gear (far left).
