lol, mounts don't mean much to me, i was shocked to see the drake but not like "ERMERGURD WHERE IS IT AJHSBFDHSBFHBEFHBEWUFHBNSFDBNEURBFHUEWNDIOERGF4REHNSIHCNDSFN" i'd muuuuuuch rather have a spirit beast
When WOTLK was still current, I spent 6 hours a day camping and flying around Sholazar for Loque. For over 3 weeks. I finally got him 6 week later after giving up when a friend found him. It was a HUGE moment and adrenaline rush.
TLPD? I camped it for 8 hours a day by having 4 toons parked at the spawn spots, but I didn't sit glued to the screen. I simply made sure that I never was away for long enough to get logged out. Thank you holidays! I got the drake on the hour 3 weeks after I had begun my camp.
I'd say Loque was harder to find for me.
Why people want Classic back; In Classic, you'd be considered a winner and a "hardcore" simply by reaching max level, having a few pieces epic gear and being able to stand the horrible logistics demands.
Today, you need actual gameplay skills to get somewhere worth mentioning. So much class theorycrafting, awareness of both your class mechanics as well as those of other players/hardest tuned bosses aimed at only 1% downing them whilst they're current.
CRZ really made getting spirit beasts harder, in cata I got all 4 spirit beasts in northrend over one night, npc scan + sound on speakers + sleeping ftw (might have used a questionable way not to get afk and that way disconnected :P)

If you can't find them either a) camp longer or b) start killing any other rare up in northrend thus forcing respawns.
I found Skoll three times in less than 36 hours, along with 2 King Krush spawns, and 2 Loque spawns all within a 36 hour window on one of the highest pop realms in addition to CRZ.
Just have to know how to hunt.

Approximately 1 hour before something should spawn in it's place somewhere else on the continent. Get a friend, have one of you start in HF and one of you start in BT and both of you work you way towards the center of the continent.
I got 2 within 18 hours. It's all about the right spot. However if I told you which spot I'm talking about it would just bring up the competition and many hunters would hate me.

Since OP was talking about spirit beasts, I don't think it really matters how many non spirit beast frostbitten rares you used to kill... Killing them still speeds up the respawns on the spirit beasts and other hunter pets.

Rare pets are rare again?
Glad I got all of them during cata.
