    So RNG is a bitch, that's what we have learned.
    Got my death-charger from strath first try. been trying for years but still haven't gotten ravenlord.

    Mount drops are entirely RNG-based. You could get it first time or after a million kills. Just keep trying and you'll eventually get it.

    Got my Raven Lord on my second or third ever solo run there, guild were all jealous

    Still after Baron, White Chocobo and Al'ar. I really CBA going for TLPD or the Deepholm one at the moment.

    Also i have only ever seen ONE Headless Horseman mount drop and that went to a guildy in Wrath. I ran that event every day on 7 characters all through Wrath and Cata, only getting the rings. My warrior still wants the plate helmet and weapon for mogging.

    Also when the Sinister Squashling pet only dropped from the HH event, i got it on one alt and not my main. When it was changed the next year to drop from the daily mailbox goody bag, EVERY other alt i had, got the pet within 4 days. My main was the LAST one to get it on the LAST day of the yearly event ! I swear i was ready to knock down the doors of Blizzard HQ and offer to be someones bitch just to get that pet.

    RNG is a bitch and for the moment i am HER bitch

    The only mounts that are taking more than 3 months of grinding for me are Alysrazor's Flametalon and Bloodlord Mandokir's raptor from ZG(last dungeon mount I don't have). Those are the only 2 I'm seriously grinding atm, alysrazor's because it's pretty and raptor so I can say there aren't any dungeon mounts I don't have, since I have 210 mounts and I doubt there'll be a new achieve anytime soon.

    Rivendare: 5
    White Hawkstrider: 3
    Raven Lord: 56
    Fiery Warhorse: 11
    Headless Horseman: 1, first day of the event 2 years ago
    Flametalon: 10
    Onyxia: 7
    Al'ar: 2
    Blue Proto Drake: About 6
    Old ZG: Few months, don't remember exact amount of runs - Got only Razzashi Raptor, no tiger.
    New ZG: Both mounts, 20 runs for Raptor and about 50 for Panther
    Stonecore Drake: 3rd run but my friend was with me and he won it, so I had another drop on 30th
    VoA Mammoth: 13
    Invincible: Didn't get it yet, doing a weekly solo run on DK

    Yes, I am really lucky, in fact my friends call me "The luckydo" and ask me to boost them for mount drops and I got a bunch of rare mounts for a few of them relatively quickly.

    I was lucky on Ashes of Alars, not even 3 solo run
    Something around 100 kills for Karazhan horse,not drop
    Something around 60 kills for Onyxia drake, no drop
    Something around 50 kills for Rivendare, no drop and I quit for this mount
    White Hawkstrider, maybe it took 15 run's

    I did a bit of farming for the Raven lord and some for Rivendare, but for the most part I've been fairly lucky. I even won Ashes when helping a guildy get some set gear.

    I haven't seen much mention of my favorite mount I've yet to get, Mimiron's Head. Never tried to farm it. Is it even possible to do so?

    Never saw it drop in tbc when I farmed kara every week on 3 toons, but got it from my second solo kill. Same thing happened with Anzu.

    Or: You wont. Thats the essence of RNG. Your time is limited and one day you will expire, and trees will grow ontop of you.

    I just started farming for Reins of the Raven Lord a month or so ago (I did it very casually before I quit) and twice daily I still haven't had much luck. I expect it to take a while.

    I remember casting 2k times for my Sea Turtle mount.

    Still haven't got the Kara horse or Raven Lord. I have farmed Raven Lord since Cata so now I don't expect anything. It's just 5mins of my daily routine to port to Shatt, fly over to Sethekk Halls and kill the boss in a couple of seconds.

    However, this week has been mind-blowing:

    1. Last reset I was parked outside Ony's lair for my 3rd solo kill, the drake dropped.
    2. 2 days later I went to the Stonecore as I heard there was a mount in there, first kill it dropped.
    3. 2 days after that, I am doing my regular solo of Blood Lord, but never considered doing the panther boss as I already own the first Zulian Tiger from when I solo'd ZG back in the day. But I chanced it, and on my first kill, got the panther.

    So this week has been amazing, I can't complain. Hopefully one day I'll obtain Fiery Warhorse / Anzu, maybe even Ashes. When I get bored I'll go farm VP as well for the drake on normal. I should really go farm the blue proto too, but I have the ironbound / rusted ones which to me dwarf all other protos besides Time Lost, purely because of it's rarity, look wise it's not a patch on the other two. Not willing to camp outdoors in Storm Peaks nor Deeopholm for those mounts though.

    Oh, and Riverdare would be nice one day. Just so I could own a rare horse. But yeah, RNG can be rubbish and amazing. Despite all the mounts I've won, especially in this last week, I crave Anzu. I have wanted it ever since it was made available, and I don't own it. But it just doesn't drop.

    Good luck!

    For me I only want mounts are look unique to something my faction cannot already have, i.e the tiger from ZG as horde has way more value to me than some skeletal horse or a lame raptor I can buy for a few gold. I ran ZG back in wrath and never saw either mount drop had the tiger drop 2 times in cata but lost the roll.

    6 kills. Same as the Onyxian Drake, Blue Proto Drake and Azure Drake. That was a lucky week.
