    Luckiest thing that has EVER happened to me

    So today I logged on, and someone put a blingatron up in the Halfhill inn at the Sunsong Ranch, I flew over to the Blingatron, grabbed my package expecting more vendor trash or Landshark mines. I was in for a surprise, I saw that I had gotten a blue item when i opened it, and was shocked, then I noticed that it was a mount, the Depleted Kyparium rocket worth 100k on some servers. I can't help but think it is literally because it's christmas time, but I also feel like I need to go out and buy a lottery ticket with that kind of luck. Reason I am posting is I am curious to know if this has happened to anyone else, even with a different mount, thanks for all your input and reading my post.

    My chat log already progressed long enough so that it expired, Believe it if you want to believe it, don't if you don't, but I am not lying about this. I do not have engineering on any character, nor do I even have the gold currently to be able to afford to make the mount.

    It's confirmed, check wowhead. I was there!

    People have said on Wowhead since 5.1 that they've gotten it. And Blizzard stated that they upped the stuff you can get from the little guy as well. Which is why we can probably only do it once a day on only one character. But it does drop, albeit it's very rare, next to impossible to get really.

    Grats! I would suspect that it's probably ~1% like most other mount drops. Also I'm not sure why people are being so skeptical about this, how does he benefit by lying about something like this? Think.
    I'm mean because you're stupid.

    Thanks! I think it's just a part of human nature to not believe something untill we see it, at any rate I'm not rattled by it, all that matters is that it's on Wowhead and currently in my bags!

    wowheads database has 144886 opened packages as of now.

    3 x Geosynchronous World Spinner = 0.002%
    1 x Depleted-Kyparium Rocket = 0.0001%

    I think the sample size should be great enough to show real values.

    Grats! I recently got the World Spinner rocket from Blingtron...I couldn't believe it!

    Ha already made a post about it. I got mine a late Christmas eve. Almost at 12:00pm exactly.
