    A better way to handle paragons imo would've been like this:

    Give all WoW fans one of the most requested convenience change - makes reputations account-wide. Now add paragon rep in there. Now Increase the number of items each box can drop. There were about 6-7 different colours of the default unicorn model which do not drop from anywhere. Voila, Let the Dreamweavers paragon drop all 6-7 unicorns. Make it so that you cannot get one you already have. You reach exalted on your main. Every alt you level from then on contributes to your account's paragon reputation and for every say 10k rep you get a box with a tiny chance to get one of the mounts. Eventually you can get them all just by playing your alts. Without having to grind WQs on your main just because he has the most rep with them or is best geared. This would make the game much more alt-friendly and in fact increase the amount of time you spend playing it. because while WQs vary, you still end up doing the same ones if you focus on one zone/faction. But if you change your alt, even if you do the same quest, you are experiences a completely different gameplay, story, visual effects, etc.

    Been doing emissaries, missions and AP WQ's since they implemented the Paragon mounts.

    I have exactly 0 mounts to show for all that time spent.
    MMO Champion is not so much a fan forum as it is a forum where jaded people lacking in self-control congregate in order to shit over an entirely optional product and those daring to actually enjoy said product.

    Haters gonna hate.

    Opened boxes:
    1x Warden's Supply Kit - got the toy Sira's Extra Cloak
    2x Farondis Chest - got the mount Cloudwing Hippogryph
    2x Legionfall Chest - got the pet Orphaned Felbat
    7x Valarjar Strongbox - got the mount Valarjar Stormwing
    44x Nightfallen Cache - got the mount Leywoven Flying Carpet
    28x Highmountain Supplies - still no mount
    33x Dreamweaver Cache - still no mount

    I have opened 30 caches on 3 characters and here is what I have gotten:

    3 mounts (first caches i opened on 2 characters). 3rd mount was a double. so im 2/3 mounts.
    3 toys
    1 legendary

    It seems after you get your first mount, the drop rate becomes extremely rare. You may have a higher chance to get a mount on your first paragon and if this is true, than its better to earn rep on new alts for a higher chance of getting the mount as I have done paragon 27 times since and got no mounts at all. Not even a double.

    0 for another 2 last night, still chasing Dreamweavers (best one by far IMO), Farondis, Highmountain and Nightfallen. But probably only 10-15 opens on each of those, so not close to worrying yet.

    Unrelated, but did pull a Legendary (Mail heal legs) from a groudspawn chest outside of Black Rook arena the other day. Anyone ever seen that?

    Not even doing the caches for the mounts(just daily cache) and I've got a few of them... though I didn't really want them.

    Please make this suggestion in game or on the forums. Good stuff.

    This is an awesome idea and this had to be done ages ago, but -no matter what others say- Blizz devs are not playing with the game (doing mythic and only mythic raiding is not playing with the game...and even with that I have doubts...especially because the countless errors and mistakes with raidbosses)

    Some unicorn mounts come from PvP (Prestige ranks), so these are already used.

    I would just want them to put mounts, pets etc. back to the reputation vendor, as we had before. Paragon chests should reward other things, which are not collectibles (gold, resources, AP, consumables, probably BoA shoulder enchants, random gear). And if they feel the need to put collectibles into such chests, then we should have a progressive increase of the droprate, like +10% per chest (so 10% for the 1st one, 20% for the 2nd and so on, and 100% for your 10th chest). If there would be more than one paragon mount, reset the drop rate after the first. Also remove duplicating mounts. This is beyond stupid.

    The PvP prestige unicorns are a different model that has armor on it and have 6 recolours.
    The default unicorn model without armour only has 2 recolours available to players and everything else is unobtainable as far as I know. And even if they are more, there are still some unused colour variations.

    13 Army of the Light boxes opened so far, recieved 2x Toy 1x Mount. Friend has opened ~11 or so, gotten 2 mounts.

    Can probably expect to open at least 20 of these before getting all the rewards

  12. #292
    I like your optimism, but I am at 17 and have 1 mount and 2 toys - and you can get duplicates too, which could really screw us up.

    I copied my toon to the PRT and opened over 100 and only got 2/3 of the mounts.
