    Big Love Rocket 0.03% drop chance.

    What is it with Blizzard and randomly really really low drop chances. I know Reins of the Onyxian Drake was fixed in 5.1 to around 1%, perhaps its time they look into this one as well, I mean 1 in 3333 attempts ( according to wowhead ) is hearth-breaking to say the least.

    After the latest "Sha/Galleon scandal" where thousands if not millions of loot tokens have been wasted, simply because the mounts didn't even exist (It seems to have been hotfixed within the last few days though). What is your thought about mounts like this, is it "ok" to have some close to impossible to obtain mounts? Or is it just like torturing people who like to collect mounts?

    And yes, before you ask I will be doing the Heart-Shaped Box farming on 11 characters every single day the next 14 days, and I know I'll be hating the event even more before its over

    On a side note, whats up with putting players outside the door, to wast 2+ minutes for every single attempt on that RP worgen!?

    If you haven't heard there is no proof that anyone anywhere has looted the sha/galleon mount. After 4 threads and guildox's armory scans blizz has yet to make an official response

    Blizzard makes the system and players choose to agonize over it.

    Has blizz even said the mounts didn't exist or there drop rate was bug/realy low? All i have seen is players guessing so far.

    I'm fine with rare mounts, mounts like Al'ar, Onyxian Drake, Fiery Warhorse and so forth are already way too common these days. You can't prevent people from overgearing instances and raids and then farming these but such a low dropchance for an event mount isn't healthy.

    I've actually seen people on the big love rocket... unless they broke it this year (which would be damn near impossible to say, as the event hasn't even been going for two full days,) it's in there... just... really rare.

    No huge cry fest here... I love rare mounts, but I'd much rather have the Heavenly onyx drake than this... big... pink... love rocket.

    The rockets drop isn't broken, the op is just venting about how low it is. The sha/galleon scandal is because no one can find proof of one ever dropping out of the thousands if not millions of loots.

    Hmm I missed that however after a quick glance through comments people are stating that after the Feb 9th reset the mount is now obtainable. An official blue response would be nice. Hopefully they don't sweep it under the rug

    This was already fixed like 2 days ago and someone got the Sha mount the same day or the day after. Just look it up on wowhead.

    While low drop mounts can suck I don't see anything wrong with them. It gives you something to hope for and try for. Maybe the Love Rocket is a little extreme but I still know several people who have one so it's not impossible. Just have to be lucky, and otherwise there is always next year and the one after that etc. (Just to be clear I don't have it myself and am still okay with it).

    Yeah the armory profiles you link, have shown up the last 2 days, it really do smell like a hotfix from blizzards side after the twitter response saying "We will look into it".

    Tbh I prefer if the mount is really low , makes it even more exiting if you do get it..

    If every one had the same mount it kind of seems a bit boring tbh.. (( dont flame me for wanting to be a special snowflake because I dont really care about this ))

    Woah idk what set you off. For many collectors wasting elder tokens on something that wasn't obtainable is quite disheartening. I'm fully supportive of low drop chances for vanity items, but I like to know I have a chance to obtain it.

    Its to make it more special for those who do get it, but the flipside of the coin is a bit harsh, how would you feel if the droprate went up say 5% every 6 months?
