Hi, I'm trying to get oondasta mount, already made a thread before asking about the drop rate but now I have some doubts about this (and other 3 mop world bosses mounts) working properly, as in:
I have around 2.200 kills plus 2.200 rolls for a total of 4.400 total attempts on oondasta and no drop and a total of around 5.600 attempts across all mop world bosses mounts and not one dropped, I did so few attempts on the other 3 cause I planned to cap them on BMAH (and did).
Why do I think there could be a bug with this?
-Oondasta based on websites and on A LOT of people I know who got it in less than 100 kills seems to be at least 3 times better drop than the other 3 mop world bosses, so I'm not considering it a 1 in 2.000 drop, but like 1 in 666; if you say "if rarity says 1 in 2.000 it's 1 in 2.000" I'd like to remind you rarity lists infinite timereaver as 1 in 100 by default when it's like 1 in 2.000 or even 4.000, so rarity isn't always right!
-Remember in early August blizzard finally fixed the respawn of oondasta and galleon to 15 mins? In that month I started seriously farming it with all 46 high levels I had at the time and groups were still possible to make since we were level 100s, and I've seen 4 mounts drop for other players in my groups in that time, 1 the 6th august, 2 the 10th august and 1 the 27th august, this doesn't really look to me like a 1 in 2.000 drop with 5 people per group average!
-Oondasta, sha, nalak, galleon have a unique way to drop: you don't loot these bosses, you don't get a container and open it and the mount can be inside; in these cases if you get the mount it appears in inventory straight.
-The max I have heard players getting oondasta mount with is 2.372 total attempts, someone here on mmo champion who posted in the "get a mount, post screenshot" thread, that is barely more than half than I did.
-I heard of another player in the US with a similar or higher amount of attempts as mine who didn't get oondasta, and also bought all other 3 mop world bosses and never got any of them to drop.
-So basically whoever went past 2.372 attempts never got it so far from what I read or heard.
Why could this not be a bug?
-An EU player had a total of 8.800 attempts before getting any of the mop world bosses mounts to drop, that's more than my combined amount, he had 2.200 on each shortly before getting his first, oondasta.
-A friend of mine was lucky on the first 3, at least quite lucky, with oondasta 20 attempts, sha 1.200, galleon 2.900, but since then he's been trying for nalak, he has over 10.200 total attempts on it and therefore over 7.300 attempts without a single mount drop.
-Assuming my theory of oondasta 1 in 666 drop per kills, rolls included, is correct, the one who took almost 2.400 attempts still got quite unlucky cause it's about 1.200 kills, but it would be theoretically possible that someone else gets again twice more unlucky than him, example: it took me 220 huolon kills which is quite unlucky, but someone on wow forums needed 552 which is 2,5x as much.
-In my experience, unless this one is a bug now, I never had mounts that couldn't drop for specific accounts, I had doubts when I kept getting blazing drakes instead of a single lifebinder's handmaiden from hc deathwing, but in the end it dropped; there were bugs so far but they affected every single account.
So these are the reasons why I doubt if there's something wrong with these mounts, though I personally only worry about oondasta since I bought the other 3; an important question is: any mount farmer out there had to do over 2.400 total attempts (including kills + rolls) on oondasta but then managed to get it?
Or any of you went past 2.400 on oondasta and didn't get it yet but were able to get any of the other 3 mop world bosses to drop?
