I definitely would NOT pay for the mount. Considering how ridiculously easy it was to get exalted with order of the cloud serpent, just get that to tie you can over until you eventually get the shards.
Its a nice mount, but I'm willing to bet most people will have 4-5 shards already by the time you're revered with august celestials provided you do your golden lotus dailies. I'd rather farm and try my luck than dump 150-250k. If it was the only non-raid achievement cloud serpent? I'd buy it in a heartbeat... but they're a dime a dozen atm.
The ML exploit is a scam! They make you give them X amount of gold before Alani is downed, you'll get ML and groupleader and everything seems fine, but only the one who initiate the fight with the skycrystal can actually loot the mount.
you havent seen the video of this DK using the crystal and some Paladin sniping the kill and looting it have you?
I wouldn't pay 150-200k for it. However, I did already buy it for my girlfriend. I paid 60k. 60k is easier to earn than 10 shards, and exalted with august celestials will also be easier than 10 shards. I'm almost revered with golden lotus on 2 different characters and haven't seen a single shard at all yet.
It also wasn't master loot. It was set to free for all.
