    It's in no way 100% drop.. I got it in the 9th jar..
    A guildie, from my old guild, had (when I last spoke to him) opened 25 jars, without the recipe dropping...

    Thanks for the reply ! I usually never have such good luck with rare things Now I might think twice about dropping alch on that character although I already made the mount . . .

    It's not guaranteed from a Canopic Jar as an Alchemist but you will only ever get one if you're an Alchemist.

    This here works great! Would do this if i where you.

    Been at this for a few days on and off. Completed nearly 100 artifacts and have yet to draw a single jar. RNG hates me!

    ...500+ solves for Tol'vir. No mount. RNG and I are at odds as well.

    500+ solves and no mount... Come on i'm calling Bull*/#@ on this... So what you've spend what 1000's of farming and gotten nothing? Bull%$^#. It takes a while NOT 500+ solves.

    Also I'm not really sure if it was changed but I've gotten the recipe in early cata on my warlock who is tailor/JC, so unless they changed it you can get the recipe on none alchy toons.

    Vial was easy for my mage....first tolvir solve was a jar and in that jar, well, you know. =P
    The mount on the other hand....i'm over 400 solves now with AND without the bugged item that was fixed. I think it may never happen....

    Leveled my mage from 80 to 87 doing only archeology for the recipe

    Unfortunately none of my alchs have leveled up arch, but I did get lucky and just buy a vial off the AH tonight for 20k which works just fine for me.

    ^This is probably the most efficient path to doing so. I haven't tried it myself, as my alchemists are nowhere near level cap, much less max level skill.. and neither has max Archaeology. (The 'joys' of alt-o-holicsm.)

    Just noticed this - I will screen shot my solves and lack of mount when I get home! Up to 525+ now Cheers!
    I HAVE gotten the ring, the claw, and something else - but no mount...which is what I am whining about, lol. Also, have 300+ solves on one alt - same three rare solves I have on my main. Just leveled a new toon's archy to try her rng as well. Trust me - I want it badly.

    If you have time to farm for the recipe AND are lucky enough to get it (like I was ) you will have time to farm for the mats and sell for a pretty penny... Mine usually sell for between 45K-47K investment to make is about 29k (plus farming) nice profit.

    IIRC, the recipe has never been available to characters who are non-Alchemists (fully metal or not.) If you somehow actually did manage to receive it on a character that isn't an alchemist, that'd be a bug in my book.
