    Great brewfest kodo & Swift White Hawkstrider : which one is the rarest ?

    Hi

    After farming for long days, i just looted the Swift White Hawkstrider from Kael'Thas Sunstrider on Magister's terrace.

    I was using the Great brewfest kodo (i also have the the Swift Brewfest ram but since it's buyable, everyone has it) and i am wondering : which one is the rarest ? (= Which one should i ride ?)

    I also have Headless Horseman's mount but everyone has it ...

    Swift Brewfest Ram can't be bought. Also, Hawkstrider's probably more rare.

    If I go 10 times to MgT the mount will drop atleast once. I call bullshit on the 2% dropchance :P

    Brewfest is prob more rare purely because it is bound to a certain event.

    Both of them are technically [rare] quality, but I don't think either is actually rare-rare. I'd guess that players who collect mounts even casually probably have both of them.

    Why don't you ride the one you like the most? I have both and never ride either.

    The brewfest mounts are more rare in terms of obtaining one, cause its only for a limited time. The hawkstrider is more easily farmed and in my eyes not as rare as the brewfest ones.

    They used to be purchased rather then drops, but it hasn't been that way for four or five years.

    great brewfest kodo for the sake that its only farmable one time of the year, hawkstrider is constantly farmable every day even though its drop rate may be significantly lower.

    And I should know, I had both of them

    Only if you still have a stamp from the first brewfest.

    Hawkstrider probably more common just because you're not limited to 3 weeks over x alts each year to get it, whereas you can do a run for hawkstrider every day.

    Still purchasable as of MoP. (If you got the hand stamp from 07 Brewfest)

    The hawk is farmable daily and makes it easier to obtain. The kodo can only be farmed for a short time those few weeks and makes it rarer imo. With that said I'd stick with the hawkstrider because of looks, run animation, and because I earned mine back when MgT was new. Grats on obtaining it!

    He only sells it to players that did Brewfest the first year and got the ticket to buy that and the normal Brewfest Ram.

    and I would say the Kodo is more rare over all since you need Brewfest to get it, and the Hawkstrider is always available.

    Neither of them are "rare", so just use whichever you prefer.

    I wish. It's the one mount I really want and the one mount I have yet to get. >_>



    As for the question, I'd say the brewfest mount as it's only obtainable during the event while you can get the hawkstrider year round.

    You can only get a chance at the kodo at brewfeast which gives you 16 chances to get it if you dont use alts

    The White hawkstider you have 365 (if you dont have alts) chances to get it cause you can only do the instance once a day on heroic

    I thought that the great brewfest kodo was no longer obtainable, I guess I am wrong.

    Eh it's a toss up. They are both pretty common.

    Kodo is probably slightly harder to obtain though, since you can't farm it 365 days a year, and there's a chance you could get the Ram instead.

    I've ran H MGT quite a few times since Cata, no mount.

    Solo'd Ony10 twice on my shaman, the mount just dropped an hour or two ago. Such is life.

    Well you can't really complain about that, at least I wouldn't lol.
