    Not the most rare mount in here, and not really challenging to get, but did take longer than I expected (one of my group mates trolled me, telling me "Best Friend" came right after "Buddy" ). Still, it kind of matches my mog, so I'm happy.

    Just started solo farming Blackhand, and this beast already dropped, so pretty stoked about that.

    I think this was the straw that broke the camels back so to speak. 5907 kills down, with another 37 toons to do this week and a friend of mine made me aware of Sha on their BMAH. Cost me 2.07mil gold, but its finally over. Would rather I had looted it from Sha himself, but my sanity is now safe.

    I realize this isn't up-to-date, but it's still a fun story. T'was somewhere around Cataclysm that I quit the game for a while, and then got back in MoP only to find my account hacked by a gold seller. However, the seller had left with some dire treasure on the character. All gear/gold was restored by a GM and I also asked about the other stuff, which the GM said there was no information about on their side anymore, and said "Congrats" to my newly acquired mount collection.

    Swift Spectral Tiger
    Spectral Tiger (Gave to best IRL friend)
    Amani Dragonhawk (Sold at AH)
    X-51 Nether-Rocket X-TREME
    Magic Rooster
    Savage Raptor
    Swift Lovebird
    Wooly White Rhino
    Big Battle Bear
    Blazing Hippogryph

    +- a few others I can't remember or duplicates that I sold on AH/gave away aswell.


    Never been much of a collector, and now I didn't feel like I had to either.

    Guess it's not exactly rare, but I got the mount from Wrangler Kravos today, after killing him daily since I went to Mac'Aree.

    Finally got another paragon today, one of the army of the light elekks, and my favorite of the three as well.



    Still bummed I'm only 2/8 for paragons and well over 100 total by now... but better than none I guess. :/

    After what feels like a decade, I finally got Reins of Poseidus.

    It only took boosting a toon on a dead Spanish realm and transferring another to a dead RP realm.

    The story:

    During mid MOP, I was hunting TLPD. Months later I saw her, dead on the side of a cliff as soon as I logged in. This was the breaking point for me, days wasted camping to miss her by seconds was beyond infuriating. I looked for loop holes and tricks so I can have that lovely piss yellow deformed dragon. Low and behold, An amazing fellow on wowhead posted a tip to get her. Transfer.

    At the time Blizzard was rolling out CRZ on all major realms. This increased the amount of campers 10 fold, but they didnt push it out on all realms. A few RPPVP realms was not merged and they were camping gold mines.

    10 minutes later I transfer a priest to one of these realms and ran right into TLPD. After a misclick, damn near death by fall damage, and a heart attack I got her, and she was only the first.

    I went after all the "world" drop mounts. Aoenaxx and the camel were mines within a week, but Poseidus, this damn sea horse dodged my every attempt. I cursed blizzard for making the mount BOE, this caused a few campers to hunt her 24/7. I even went as far to create and boost a toon on a dead Spanish realm in an attempt to get one.

    NEVER EVEN SAW A CORPSE.

    All these years, all those hours and this week, i saw a finally saw a body. I sent a timer for 4 hours and camped it. After 7 hours I got her. Finally had one, then 24 hours later I had another, and now a third across two dead realms. Too late to sell for a half million gold that she normally goes for but hopefully i could get at least 100k.

    Got 3 rares in a day!





    Isn't it ironic how education is important, yet people forget all about it when they visit the internet?

    Hit exalted with Sons of Hodir and picked up the two mammoths.

    Finally got the Wild Dreamrunner after ~20 Paragon boxes for the Dreamweavers (no too bad, I guess?). Best mount in this expansion IMO, so I'm pretty happy.

    I was lucky and got it on my 2nd paragon chest, but hadn't got another one until a few days ago with Blessed Felcrusher.

    I thought I could be proud of having the Sea Turtle, but after reading this thread I don't know whether to feel happy for not having wasted as much time farming mounts or disappointed I don't have them.

    It's a matter of perspective. It's just like anything else in life: drinking, drugs, going to the gym, doing good/not doing good in school. From any objective standpoint, anything you do in life is pointless/a waste of time because we're gnna die anyway, will have 0 impact on the world and few people will remember us for what we did.

    Might as well farm virtual items if that's what you enjoy doing, because it'll probably feel like less of a waste at the time/in perspective.

    Don't know how rare this is, decided to run so MoP raids for the 1st time to try for mounts. Got this on 12 character on week 1. Nothing on 6th boss though.

    With the scaling of Legion gear, this raid became soloable early lvl 110, making the obtainable mounts significantly less rare.
    It's as rare as any rare drop mount if that's what you mean, but being able to solo the boss on 12 characters is one reason it's not really 'rare' anymore.
