I have a quick question. I was thinking about doing this grind using the pandaren/mogu relics traded for tol'vir relics. Will I actually be able to get the mount solve doing this or are you forced to endlessly wonder Kalimdor solving everything till a tol'vir site pops up?
I got mine around the 5 tol'vir solve, i was like holy crap i was just trying to get the patterns for the sandstone drake.
just today i finally got the pet, at 124 solves, the mount came at 90 ish solves.
As someone has pointed out before, go dig mantid sites with the item that makes mantid sites spawn only.
Excuse my bad english, but it´s better than your spanish or catalan.
I just passively do it now through trading the solved artifacts for Tol'vir fragments while doing Arch in Pandaria when I get bored.
Still nothing, of course, but it's a lot better than doing it legit in Kalimdor.
This was posted in another thread but there's a bug with the Mantid Sonic Locator which causes it to give you 4 extra digsites on the non-pandaria continents and shuffles them every time you log in/out or zone somewhere. Makes farming Tol'vir sites really easy now.
Got my mount last week, had all the other tolvir rares+mount recipe for quite many solves. (202 mounts on paladin)
I did around 150 Tol'Vir (3 rares, staff/scarab/ring) solves before I started grinding Seeker of Knowledge title. After I was done, I turned in 680 boxes. Got mount, sword, pet and recipe for Sandstone Drake with 120 boxes left to go. Turned em all to troll, but alas, no sword =(
i got extremely lucky and i got it after like 15 discoveries. I still don't have the pet though, but it's way fastre to just farm pandaria and exchange the artifacts for tol'vir fragments.
Maybe not great conversion, but at least you get exactly what you need.
Pretty sure I ended getting it a little after 300 Tol'vir solves. This was also before MoP and some of the archeology nerfs.
Approaching 400 solves. I've now started carrying around my ring and necklace in the hopes it might do.... something....

Hit 405 solves, and guess what. Still no bloody mount. I don't understand, why is it not proccing I mean jesus...
If anyone is wondering, 461 solves. Still no mount. I'm starting to wonder If I will see this before 1000 solves or not.
I'm really praying for this to proc very very soon... spent about 15k buying a stack of tolvir fragments off the AH just to try and speed it up.
