So today while i was leveling my druid, i had a really weird feeling. So i went to check deepholm, nothing, naturally. I also did a few laps for the TLPD, Poseidus, and the camel figurines. I then got the idea of starting to do a weekly TK run, with everything on free roll. I got me and 4 other people and we did the raid. I said GL to my group and the mount i have wanted forever, dropped. The Ashes Of Al'ar was right there. I was shaking so bad i posted my Real ID status as something like "askdlnakjsdnajsd ASHES DROPPED asjdnaksnd". And of course i have been reading threads of people getting rare mounts their first run. So the rolls were finally in.
Need Roll - 82
Need Roll - 67
Need Roll - 34
Need Roll - 76
Need Roll - 43 for [Ashes of Al'ar]by Minuto
Bacon___ Won [Ashes of Al'ar]
Bacon___ receives loot: [Ashes of Al'ar]
Right before the roll, the person who won said that she would pay 350kg for it. Of course I wouldn't sell it, but still ironic.
My heart completely sank. Oh, and i forgot to mention that earlier that day my friend got a Shadowfang for 200g. For those of you who don't know what it is, it is worth around 100-150kg.
Anyway, I started texting my friend about what had just happened to me. He began to troll me non-stop because i kept saying things like "O well, it'll drop again". He responded with "lolololololol ya sure u will... in a few years ahaha". After i told him that i was the group leader because i don't trust people hosting runs like TK because it's extremely simple to ninja. He kept telling me that i could have switched it to master looter and that mount could be all mine. But i'm not like that at all because i would just think how i would feel if that happened to me.
The point of this whole post was to share with you my story because i like reading things like this and i wanted to ask, do YOU think that i will ever see this drop again if i run it on 3 toons every reset? I know RNG is RNG but everyone that i've talked to said that they have seen it more than once before eventually winning the roll. I'm also thinking of making a little Achievement / Mount Log, For example,
----Run 1 5/3/12------ Ashes Drop #1
----Run 24563 7/21/20 ---- Ashes Drop #2
But i would do that for every single mount that i am trying to get would you be interested in that?
Thanks for taking the time to read my post, and i wish you all Good Luck with the achievements / mounts you are trying to get! I hope my luck with the ashes drop runs off on you all who are farming it!
