At this point it is very easy to solo on any dps alt. Just get her down to 67% at your own pace, then blow all cooldowns till she drops dead. I don't even bother killing the whelps anymore, they just despawn when she dies.
So this got buffed lately ?
I remember doing betwene 120-200 runs during end of wotlk with guild & early MoP when i quitted wow cause i don't like kungufudisney..
Apperently blizzard loves to make harder things easy to get now cause since my return i see so many flying in capital citys ....
Do i get some kind of refund for my lost runs while they hand it out now ?

10 man is def doable by any class or spec, currently working on the 25 man version on a shadow priest alt with an ilvl of about 497, got him to 40% but had adds up when he landed which screwed me over a bit. ( the whelps have 200k hp and the guards have 600k in 25 )
I doubt the droprate has increased, you see a lot more of these mounts because:
-No more need to be in a raidgroup to enter a raid.
-Soloable on each fairly geared 90 (while it was a tad harder on lvl 85, yes, there are classes where it was also easy for everyone to solo as 85, hold your horses)
-due to account wide mounts, it is much more attractive to farm on all your alts
-everyone is trying to get this now, and if you win it, you ride it
-people on the internet exaggerate a lot. It's basicly the same as asking a guy about how many bed partners he had, devide by at least 3, (if its half a decent girl, multiply by 3). If one says 100 tries pre-MoP, 20-30 is probably a fair number if he had actually tried.

On my Frost DK ilvl 500 I pretty much down Onyxia before she even lands for phase 3, and she spends only about 5 seconds in phase 2. She does a decent amount of damage, but if you are lvl 90 in half decent gear it should be no problem. I have killed her about 20 times, ran MC 30, killed Anzu 45 and Kill Atuman the Huntsman 35 times. I'm still holding on to hope I'll see it drop, I mean heck it took me 2 runs to get White Hawkstrider from Magister's Terrace.
Through the years of playing wow i killed Ony plenty... never saw her mount drop. I just re-subbed, went in to try her out as a rogue to solo.. she died quick it was very easy and yep, mount dropped.
On a side note, finished watching first season of game of thrones last night... awww baby onys.
