    I got the Swift White Hawkstrider in about 5-6 runs. Other than that, I've been attempting to obtain Onyxia's mount, Ashes, Reins of the Raven Lord, Attumen's mount, TLPD, and Aeonaxx with zero success for the past couple months.

    Just got a second Ony drake, this time on my better half's account. I finally got mine after 112 attempts last week. Today was my third time trying on his hunter and it dropped because even RNG wants to gargle his characters' balls. I had to buy him 280 flying so the damn thing could even be learned. It's not fair 0_o

    Well i took a break from farming bones and decided to do Kael for the 2nd kill ever on my DK, and got Ashes, made some people rage in vent. Then I went ahead and finished the bone grind hunter and got my bone-white raptor, not rare perse but rare in that few people actually put life on hold to farm the bones. However my dk Alfaqup on sargeras has the chieve if anyone doesn't believe meh!

    Got a few:

    Farmed Anzu for over a year and gave up, after a few months i was bored so thought ''what the hell, lets try this shit again'', mount dropped. Funniest part: my friend saw me with it and said ''that's a cool mount, where did you get it?'' ''Sethekk halls hc'' ''cool, I'll try it!'' 15 mins later he had the mount.

    My girlfriend saw someone with aeonaxx but had no idea how rare it was or even how to get it, she just knew she wanted it, so i told her how to get it and that she could expect to be camping for very long if she really wanted it, but ofcourse being the laziest person in the world as she is she asked me to camp it for her, obviously my first reaction was ''fuck no, that's gonna take months!'', specially since i didn't use addons, but since she insisted so much i thought ''whatever I'll just camp for a few days and be done with it''. So first day I'm camping in Deepholm half afk reading stuff on the internet, what's my surprise when i go back in the game and aeonaxx is there flying in front of me, after only 3 hours of camping, so i killed him and got the mount....on my girlfriends account >.>

    Last one, being a mount collector I always wanted the time lost proto drake but could never bring myself to camping it, specially because I have a friend who spent huge amounts of time camping it and only got it after more than a year, but that day i just thought ''that's it, I'm gonna camp that bastard and I'm gonna get it!'', I told my friend and he said ''Pff you'll never get it! Specially not without addons! Haha Good luck with that!'' so I said ''I don't need your shitty addons, addons are for noobs!''...So anyway I camped for 30 mins before I went to sleep, next day I log in, wait for 5 mins and bang! The time lost proto spawns just a few meters away from where I was, it was hilarious when i showed it to my friend.

    Last Valentines day I was upset that my girlfriend had broken up with me, so I decided the best cure was to drink it off and do the Holiday Boss. While half in the bag I queued up for the event and must have passed out at the computer. I woke up later that night with my character ghosted out and dead at the loading screen and asked myself what the hell, I am a healer how did I die? I reviewed my recount and saw that I cast Beacon and 1 Flash of Light the entire fight and in my bags there was the (Big Love Rocket)

    x-52 Nether Rocket, both versions.

    It was during the latter part of TBC, before SW came out. I was just sitting there in Org one day on my Paladin and I see someone in trade ask, "Where can I get a decent axe for a lvl 29 pally?" There were a plethora of typical asshat responses, not uncommon in tarde chat. I sent a tell that he should go to Razorfen Kraul for corpsemaker. Five minutes later, "Where is that? Can you show me?" I was bored, why not. Ended up flying to Barrens and running the guy there, that turned into helping him get the axe. I was lvl 70 in full BT gear at the time, not an issue, took 3 runs, maybe ten minutes.

    The guy was so happy he gave me a code, said it was for a rocket mount. I look on Ebay, they were selling at the time for 3-500$. Told him this, "I know I'm 23 I know what it is and I don't care." So I rolled on down to Booty Bay as he told me to do and proceeded to turn in the code. Said it was already redemmed. Figures, when something seems to good to be true, usually is.

    Two weeks later I am in BT fighting Illidan when the same guy sends me a tell, "Hey remember me, I have another code for you to try." Interesting, after raid I get the code and go Booty Bay, says redeemed. Told him, he says, "Hmmm, you know what, you ar edoing this wrong, you go to the Upper Deck website and redeem there for a new code you use in game." WHHHAAAAATTT?!!!!

    Proceed to UD website, there it is, code redemption, input code, REDEEMED, gd it....

    Frantic search around desk for paper with first code on it, FIND IT, UD website, input, BAM!!!!

    Two rocket mounts for 25 minutes running a poor newb in RFK.

    TY Karma!

    Moral of the story, stop being a douche in tarde chat.

    Did Kael'Thas yesterday with a friend of mine. Ashes dropped. He has literally every other mount and I have...as the rarest..ehm, Amani Battle bear. I let him have to finish his collection.

    Today, while heading for Ulduar (with said friend) he spots Time Lost. Hunted for 30 minutes only to realise he spotted it XR during a FP-flight. Anger, boiling anger.

    I finally got my Reins on the Onyxian Drake today! Even before mounts were shared, way back in Wrath, I told myself I'd have it one day. I've been farming it seriously for roughly six months This is the mount of my dreams and it's finally mine!

    When it popped up, I kind of blinked and stared at it for a few seconds, then learnt it and proceeded to do a funny little dance around my chair.

    Ashes of Al'ar after like 4 months of soloing.

    I killed Kael'Thas.. looted him... and missed mount. I have no idea how it could happends, but I just don't realise he is there. I loot every item then go sleep. Next day when I was vendoring items I saw it. And I just start loling so hard

    Got a new direhorn mount from a Warbringer. These aren't rare, however after killing 30 more of them to get another color (which I haven't got so far) I'm starting to think RNG can be a bitch.

    Old guildie of mine ninjaed Mim's head and got it taken away by a GM. Different old guildie of mine ninjaed the normal madness mount and got it taken away by a GM.

    Starting to think I attract mount ninjas

    I think I'm going to beat pretty much anyone who posted on this thread.

    I got both the ZG mounts from one run soloing, while it wasn't my first run (had been farming that place for many months) it's still the luckiest thing that happened to me in WoW.

    Well, I think you are pretty cool.

    I grind, and eventually mounts drop.

    Still waiting on Attumen's Firey Horse and Onyxia, but given enough time.

    Not bothered to farm ICC or Deepholm for mounts.

    Kara mount, first time in there it dropped. Same for ZG Tiger, second run we saw a raptor but I had to let hubby have it b/c he let me have the Kara Horsey. Swift Alliance steed on my first run in TOGC(even though not a rare mount, a rare find on my server). Aaaannnnddd a total of maybe 5-10 runs in Stratholme spread out over months only to have Baron's mount drop in a healer bag. I've had stupidly insane luck for most mounts, but if it makes you feel better I tend to roll very low on gear and I know the other tank in our guild looooves that.

    Blue Proto Drake... seen it once, lost the role to a guildy who did NOT have epic and had no plans on buying it anytime soon(still didn't have epic a year later) but he fought tooth and nail that he had every damn right to roll on it and then he won it. Very bitter about that mount, run UP 4 toons a day since June and I doubt I will ever see that mount.
    And eight, eight, I forget what eight was for
