My server has multiple galleon mounts, however still no Sha...rng is rng i guess?
Anyone who says they've seen it drop are no better than Man'ti Teo. He saw Lennay, am I right?
Just because someone linked you /script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("\124cffa335ee\124Hitem:87771:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0\124h[Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent]\124h\124r"); Doesn't mean that it dropped. You didn't see it drop, you saw someone link that.
No one in the world has these mounts , it's clearly not an available drop.
These mounts will be probably enabled in 5.2 to encourage people to still kill Sha and Galleon every week to help out the crowd of alts that will inevitably be looking (unsuccessfully) for Sha kills.
I really hope this isn't the case and the reason behind posts in the bug forum on this topic being repeatedly deleted.if in fact the above quote is true, and “These mounts will be enabled in 5.2 to encourage people to still kill Sha and Galleon” I’m going to be utterly infuriated. I’ve never found the need to post my QQ on the forums but this goes above and beyond unscrupulous. Blizzard fully knew people were using coins every week to attain these mounts… They knew that people were killing it on several alts JUST to get these mounts. If in fact they were waiting until 5.2, then it means they (Blizzard) sat there quietly, saying nothing, just to keep their crappy world bosses alive and relevant. They knew if they exposed their ruse these bosses wouldn’t even make it to 5.2 without being all but forgotten. They pretended there was a carrot at the end of the stick to trick players into keeping these bosses relevant and Sha kills consistent for new players and alts.
Whether a Blue lied about its current existence or they merely allowed this misinformation to continue, they knew people were wasting time and coins every week on the unattainable making it equally wrong. If it comes to pass that they were truly waiting until 5.2 and chose to say nothing, I will lose a significant amount of respect for blizzard.
Someone else in that thread said it well.. They aren't lying, they never said "yes, you can coin the mount from Sha". Someone asked if you could coin mounts, and they said "It depends which ones".
They weren't completely truthful, but they sure as hell didn't go out of their way to stop people from using a coin every week on their main and all their alts for 4 months. That's the disturbing part.
Er, why did I just have my post deleted after I posted it here on MMO-C? I've never had that happen before.
It gave me an error message that said "Your post must be reviewed by a moderator" ???
Edit: The post I quoted was deleted as well.. That person's post was just a copy/paste of something from the official forums?
Edit2: It's back.. forum inception Idk

And it just reappeared... Weird...?
Anyway, Blizzard needs to respond, but I doubt they will. They're up to 44 pages combined from the two threads, not counting all the copy-cat threads that didn't get past 2 pages.
Blizzard is always more inclined to respond to posts from people asking why Alt+F4 closes their game, rather than answering something like this.
Has anyone considered the possibility that Blizzard set the drop rate at something like 1/100000, but forgot to take into account the multiplier of the chance of even seeing loot which would make the true chance of seeing either mount something like 1.5 in a million?

1% stated drop rate = .15% actual
0.1% = 0.015% actual
0.05% (the lowest number I've seen used in relation to it) = 0.0075% actual
That's pretty darn low. Makes the Love Rocket look downright common.

Also, a big lol@ people who think "I saw someone get it" with nothing to back it up or "I've never seen it drop" mean anything in the context of whether or not the mounts can drop.
I'm not telling you this because I think you (or anyone else) don't know, just trying to clear up some of the confusion and hopefully prevent future misuse of percentages in this thread.
