Being an avid reader of these forums and having just recently read about some player looting Ashes of Alar on his 4th kill, I had decided, "What the heck, let's start soloing weekly runs of The Eye. After a small amount of research I had learned that the drop rate is 1-2% (varies according to source) and I figured it's going to be a long road. Point in case, after my first Kael kill the Ashes dropped..I looked at my wife and screamed at her, " ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!?".
Like many players, I have had my string of unfortunate RNG and now I feel as though it's all been justified with this achievement! I'm so happy and a little sad after I learned about just how this mount was introduced into the game. Blizzard did right by Ezra in making something so dear to him a reality.
I feel privileged.
That's my story! Good luck to all the players.
PS. If for some reason you don't believe me, check my achievements. My Tempest Keep achievement was immediately followed by the Ashes feat of strength
