Not sure who said it was 100% but Wowhead comments dated 8 and 9 days ago specifically say the mount is not 100% drop rate. Also comments posted “yesterday” stating it was not 100% either.
Yep, Exact same thing happened to me this morning. 80k gold for the glider wasted.
Is the glider a one time use item for 80k? That seems like a bug or is the fix not until Tuesday? That’s seems really extreme, even for WoW
Glider is a 1 time use , my server 200k per glider. If you miss the jump , your good is down the drain
So I think it is a 100% drop for the person who uses the glider, and rides Sundancer down to the platform. That’s what I was reading from Wowhead, and after trying it out myself I was able to get the Sundancer pretty easily.
I’d suggest going to the cliffside just north of the platform and wait for Sundancer to run by, jump down and keep circling him as you descend and keep clicking at him while you do. Then IMMEDIATELY start spamming the “soothe” active ability that will show up or you die and waste your glider.
It was part of the patch notes for Friday. It says it’s for those who are eligible but it doesn’t specify exactly what that means.
Is the mount only for the Kyrian covenant players? That could be why it says for those eligible…
No, anyone from any Covenant can get it, the “eligible” player is the one who rides, and lands Sundancer on the platform to be challenged. My Covenant is Ardenweald, but I was still able to preform the quest and receive the mount at the end.
Although other players who simply participate in the fight only have a 10% chance of getting the mount.
If you think Blizz is gonna add a recolored mount with a better chance than 1 in 500 you’re being to kind to how they operate.
Oh I see. That’s good. I want that golden unicorn
Nope. Join a raid of about 12 people. The glider owner didn’t get the mount. 4 other people did.
I’ve done the event/encounter solo twice now with no drop, so I’m not really sure what the hotfix actually did. Kyrian, have the blessing, using my own skystrider gliders. Quite frustrating considering the material cost and spawn timer.
Wow, I can’t even find the glider on the AH but for something that expensive that’s messed up that it’s not 100% lol. I guess it’s meant for kyrian who can just craft it?
This is still an issue. I just about spent 35k for 35 anima. I opened a ticket and referenced the “hotfix” so hopefully they help
I’ve been told as of my latest ticket:
The Hotfix fixed some bugs that were causing the mount to not be given to people who completed the Sundancer encounter in a way that should have granted them the mount. Looking at your character, I can confirm that you didn’t complete the encounter in the proper way and therefore didn’t earn the mount appropriately. At the moment it seems like the appropriate way to get the mount is not widely known in the community at all and therefore more research into the Sundancer encounter and the surrounding areas is what I’d recommend first.
What that extra requirement is, is beyond me, and also makes no sense. Had the blessing, used the glider I crafted myself, got the achievement, beat the encounter, nothing but 35 anima.
Yet someone can walk up to it with none of the above and get it. So I don’t honestly know if something is still missing or it’s still bugged, because I haven’t heard of anybody having any other prerequisite at all.
Finally got this on the third attempt. I did nothing at all different other than beating the fight faster, maybe I just barely timed out before? Two other people got it that did not have any of the requirements at all (one was Venthyr even).
Very, very odd, but glad that’s over for now!
It isn’t 100%? I got mine first try. That sucks.
My understanding is it is 100% for whoever used the glider, and just a chance for everyone else
I just joined a random group.
I wonder if there’s an advantage for Kyrian players.
I haven’t gotten it yet, and I’m Kyrian. I’m working on getting my 10k anima so I can make the glider myself. Then Sugar Daddy Fenny is going to make it rain sundancers for all of his friends.
