    Primal Egg

    Just wondering what the drop % chance is on these bad boys, I know they always contain the mount, just wondering how often they will drop. If anyone has a estimate that would be jolly

    200 bones worth is what ive heard as average (depending how tuff a monster is = how many bones and higher drop rate) I got mine at about 500.

    I got my first one at 1124 bones. I got my second one after the first egg hatched and it took me about 600 bones.

    I got the red raptor first. I'm aiming for the green one.

    According to wowdb's data, Primal Egg is about 3% drop rate from the big dinosaurs and about 1% from the young ones.

    (there is some variation between specific mobs, but that's probably due to sample size)

    Its only that low because it is unique. I got both eggs after 5 or so kills.

    Ah that's good to know. That will skew the statistics on both database sites.

    I don't remember how many kills it took, but I had about 200 bones when I got my first egg. My friend, who I was farming with, got his within our first ten kills though.

    I got my first one after about 4 hours of farming for bones. I didn't know what it was until I looked it up. Went back after my egg hatched, and got one off my first kill. RNG is definitely RNG. I know Wowhead isn't a great source just cause of the egg being unique, But I did get both of my eggs off the larger 8.3M Direhorn.

    Got 3 eggs (after each hatched, of course) in the first 3-4 kills. Got the 3 different colors out of the 3 eggs... glad they didn't 'repeat' (don't really know if it's a clever system, or if i had luck).

    I know I farm in the middle near the tar. I kill all 6 (ish) Dinomancers then farm the small dinos and pterrowings while waiting for them to respawn. I've killed about 500 of the trolls without a book D:

    Oondasta's been kind enough to poop eggs for me, for I've dug my second Primal Egg out of his poo after he died

    wowhead data is messed up on the eggs as you can only have one at a time.
    definitely been unlucky, oondasta hasn't dropped any, had one from a flying dino, then nothing. upto 1700 bones collected at the moment =(

    All data on the drop rate of this is bad. Seeing as the egg is unique and last 3 days. So the data can only be correct if you stop farming between each egg you get. However no one would do that and its to late to do it now anyway.

    With that said I got my first egg at around 100+ bones, while waiting for Oondasta kill when we were running around the beach killing some dinos to pass time.

    I got 1st egg after some 600bones got green raptor, 2nd egg got that day 1st egg hatched after some 300 eggs, egg hatched and i got the same raptor. So that sux...

    650+ bones, still no egg. Friend came over to help me farm some of the tougher ones for a couple hours and they got one on the second kill. /sigh Then they got a second egg after their first one hatched from the LFR satchel.
