    I won't be trying hard to get this one, though it is cute and I'd be happy to get it I'm just doubtful of my chances and only one maxed toon at the moment anyhow.

    Huh?

    Pink Love Rocket has never had anything to do with 310 flight speed. The Violet Protodrake, which you got for completeing the full set of yearly event achievements awarded you 310 flight if you didnt have it already, and I think (not 100% sure) that earning either of the ICC 10 / 25 Glory achieves for the Frostwyrm mounts would give it as well. Blizzard would NEVER have tied something that granted 310 flight to a 100% completely random drop. You always had to earn it.

    Would really love to see that screenie, + an armory link, + a verifiably date stamp that proves the mount dropped anytime before february of this year.

    Of course, it is not even remotely possibly the person you saw riding the Galleon mount was actually riding http://ptr.wowhead.com/item=89682 instead.

    I'd increase the chances a little. even just to 0.5% maybe. 0.03% is VERY low, especially considering half the people getting that do get the mount will prob not drive it round as it looks god-awful.

    0,03% is OK for dungeon mounts, that can be tried anytime people want. A mount that can be tried only once a day for very short time of one annual event is too much of a low chance. Artificially created difficulties never were a good mechanic and never will be.

    It seems everyone here is mistaken that you should be able to get everything you want.

    No, I think you're mistaken because with enough effort everyone should have everything they want.

    What's the reasoning behind making something nearly impossible to have, with no relation to the effort people put in. Just because? We all saw how well it worked in Diablo 3. (sarcasm sign)

    I think I saw one of these in Wrath. Haven't seen it since though. If you ask me, a mount with a drop rate this low, obtainable in a two week annual window, might as well not even exist. Even the people who win one don't ride it.

    Welcome to most stupidly rare mounts in the game.

    Everyone want everything to be rare as long as they have it.

    Yeah, a 0.03% drop rate is stupid.
    Clearly you aren't trying hard enough, only 11 max-level characters? You can have up to 50 across multiple servers! Account wide mounts!

    Hahah true>_<

    But then, you can also be stupidly unlucky and not get it (like myself for HH-mount), it came in 08 (i think, or before achievmenets maybe) in october this year will be year 6 for me to get that mount, i did it on 9chars (+other friends alts) the 2 first years, then i have done it atleast 5times the other years. Everyone and their mother have this mount. I dont..

    And speaking of unlucky, 3,5years every 3day doing ZG raptor boss before they removed it. Dont have that either but i should have around 80-90% to have seen it.

    why did you have to use the word casual? makes it look like you think you are pro or something for killing that world event boss.

    He plays a human female, It's typical of people who play that race.

    Usually it's the female human rogues named "BACKSTABQT" Who talk about "Yoloswagging" around casuals...always the human females.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go cleanse my mouth with a blowtorch for using that word.

    I was in a raid with someone who got the mount from Galleon! He showed it to all of us.

    This was probably a month ago. I don't remember his name though, alas.

    shhh... don´t give proof of something that obviously doesn´t support the whinny OP.

    And as far as ´wasting elder charms´.... big deal. If you are raiding and could use gear and you used one to double the chance to get a very very rare mount.. well then you aren´t much of a team player, are you? and if you aren´t a raider.. then guess what.. Galleon is your BEST place to use a token anyway since it offers higher gear than you can get in LFR. So which is it? are you a selfish raider who gave up gear progression to help your raid in order to win a vanity mount? Or are you a person in 483 LFR gear getting an extra roll on a boss who drops 496 gear?

    Irony no? They want drop rates to be increased.. so why not use one of the other 100 mounts you have.. ´oh, because everyone else has that one´..

    It was probably the horn, it looks similar just no armor and usuable in valley.

    Are you trying to be funny? Because it wasn't funny. Neither well-thought. Not even derailing.
    Never try this again, for your own sake.
