I may be the unluckiest player ever. I’m not talking the hundred percent drops or garrison mounts or promotions. I’m talking the tough to get mounts with low drop rates. Never got lucky even once.
Turtles out of pools. Nope.
5000 KUL Tiran casts. Yep. Mount nope.
Sethrak halls nope.
Hundred island expeditions run. Yep. One of 5 mounts. Nope.
What’s the deal. How about a pity timer like Hearthstone? If You’re investing the time, up the reward chance
LOL Islands. I’ve run hundreds now without a mount. Probably around the 400 mark now? They are incredibly rare. Have a friend who has rarity counter up to 1400 runs, and only acquired Surf Jelly. Don’t feel bad about that one.
Turtles are very easy in a garrison fishing group. Basically guaranteed after an hour or so.
Mount farming is not for the weak willed. Gotta keep pounding your head against the ones you want for years upon years. Sometimes you’ll get lucky, othertimes you kill Ultraxion nearly 200 times and the thing still doesn’t show up in the box.
Meh! Good luck hunting!
Judging by your relatively low amount of achievement points I take it you haven’t played WoW that long. I can only think of 2 or 3 instances where I’ve gotten lucky with low drop % mounts in all the time I’ve played… hang in there just gotta keep grinding.
I’ve got two words for you:
Seriously. I’m kind of amazed at how many people I’ve known (including me) who got that amazing mount in the first few … dozen tries.
On the other hand, I’ve still never gotten Poundfist. Which seems like a cinch. I just never find him spawned when I go looking.
I’ve pursued paragon mounts in legion many times. Its easier runs with built up 120’s from BFA lol.
I’ve only gotten 1. One I didn’t really like lol. At least I got it to say yep the system does work. Eventually.
One of the best things that ever happened to me in WoD was the fishing groups in the finder. That is how I got my two turtle mounts after fishing like a demon for so long.
I hunted Invisible for many years only doing on this character. Then one day I wanted some mail gear so I took my Shaman through there and got it on that characters first try.
Mix it up a bit is my ultimate suggestion.
I find i get most of my lucky mount drops when i go places for things other than the mount…
Its like the mounts know you want them
Time-Lost Proto Drake.
I have camped this great drake since WotLK. ONE time i got it to the ground. Only to find out while I killed it another player tagged it first.
Since then Nada. Zilch. Nothing.
Don’t feel bad OP there’s a reason those rare mounts are rare.
Keep trying though.
I’m morally obligated to keep Cantaloupe forever because I got that mount while on one of my many, many xmog runs in Ulduar.
I cannot count how many times I’ve run ICC or Stonecore… but I’m not complaining as I’ve been very lucky with mounts. Just hang in there.
Azure drake from Eye of Eternity has been my bane for a while trying to finish the drake achievement. Run it on like 8 toons a week still never see it.
The trick to farming mounts is to never give up.
Even when you get to the point that you wonder if the mount even exists and you were hallucinating when you saw that guy on it that one time.
Keep going, but sake of sanity rotate in other dungeons to break the monotony.
I have been farming the drake. I have gotten so much rep over exalted that the vykrul think I am a god. Yet no drake.
I took a mate of mine on an IE. She got a mount drop after three minutes. I know people who have done dozens of IR and not one mount.
Another mate took his brother to Tempest Keep for fun. The brother had only just started WOW. Guess who got the Ashes first try.
My mate, through gritted teeth, congratulated him.
What he said later was…unprintable.
I got incredibly lucky in a 5 man random dungeon and won the /Roll for Deathchargers Reigns
I got Invincible, and Mimiron’s Head on the same day.
(I also got Pureblood Firehawk, and Flametalon of Alysrazor on the same day, they just don’t have Feats of Strength with them.)
Don’t worry, I was farming on six different characters at the time, so it’s not so bad.
Plus, if it’s of any consolation, I trudge through Dragon Soul constantly and have yet to see either Deathwing mount. Do you know how awful that place is to farm?
In MoP, me and my buddy were ganking lowbies in the Blasted Lands, and killing them when they showed up on their 85s.
When we went through a lull (a lot of people would usually log out after their third or fourth death) we would usually queue a bg or an arena.
Except one day we decided to queue the Valentine’s Day boss for the first time, as neither of us had run it.
Surprise surprise I got the rocket. Thinking back on it, there’s a good chance I’m the only person to get it on their first run.
I took it as a sign that the RNGods didn’t care about me slaughtering defenseless lowbies, and spent the rest of the expansion ganking them, this time on a big pink rocket.
