    Do you use OQueue? Normally, there always are at least some people who want to kill it.

    Looks like it will be something I will have to solo farm in 8.0 or 9.0.
    On my server there's always a group farming the world bosses for all the mounts. They all even have a set out route.

    I have 3-4 guildies that have obtained the mount from Huolon..can't see it being the rarest mount in the game even though its only been available for 5 months.

    HEAVENLY, not Thundering. This mount is from Sha of Anger in Kun-Lai.

    Ye, it's stupidly rare mount. Sha of Anger was outdated boss when the mount started to actually drop, but still plenty of people kill it every week.
    But still it's rarer than any TCG which is kinda stupid.

    Guess it's just blind luck mount like love rocket. Doesn't require any skill, is on very easy boss loot table. No effort required. Just favorable RNG.

    As someone with close to 500 rolls across all my toons (half coins) on Sha, I believe it. Doubt I'll ever get that dumb serpent.

This means that there are probably several thousand players with the black battle tank and title world wide (but only several hundred in each region) while there are probably only a few hundred players world wide with the Heavenly Onyx Serpent.

    It doesn't say anywhere in the infographic that it is the rarest obtainable mount. It simply states that it is the rarest mount.
    If you wanna be like that then it is not the rarest mount in the game. Fluorescent Green Mechanostrider is the rarest mount because it is owned by only one player.

    It was pretty shitty of them not to catch the mount drop bug. You know, after thousands killed it at peak time for gear.

    Surely this cant be true? You telling me there is more people with Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal than the Heavenly Onyx serpent?
    What they neglect to asterix on that info graphic is how the Heavenly Onyx Serpent wasn't on Sha's loot table until mid way through ToT. The mount forums followed the drop rates and saw the day the first one dropped. Now the problem is trying to get people to kill Sha is delegated almost entirely to the mount farmers on Oqueue. A very rare mount indeed, but not because of lack of trying

    If it is, I wonder why nobody does that Sha on my server anymore.

    I kind of doubt that statistic includes TCG mounts or mounts that are currently unavailable tbh. Kind of like i don't believe for a second that the tiny red carp is the rarest pet. Rarest pet is probably mini tyrael/diablo or the first murky pet from blizzcon.

    Like people have pointed out the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent wasn't even obtainable for a while due to a bug, I'm seeing a lot more now on my high populated realm, just a matter of time until I get mine :P

    Well TCG mounts are no longer rare thanks to the duping exploit and Blizzards ignorance there was a problem.

    I think that with the mount being mentioned right after that it implies rarest of actually obtainable mounts

    TCG mounts are far from extremely rare and the only one they probably left out is the Flourescent Strider

    Mounts like that shouldn't be listed here, cause he only got it cause of a GM not paying attention
