    I used to farm Sethekk Halls everyday on my Druid throughout Wrath. Sometime mid-Cata I ran it one time on my Hunter, who had become my main, and the Raven Lord dropped. Months of farming on my Druid and nothing. One day on my Hunter and Bam! /sigh

    The one reason I was glad that mounts became account wide. I have my Hunter that is my mount toon. Has a lot of rares. On my druid I got the Drake that drops off Utgard Pinnacle, won it twice, both times I gave it to friends that I was with since it was us two and 3 pugs. So I did have to go back and farm it in cata days on my hunter.
    The other one was the Mammoth out of Vaults. I saw it drop a few times on my pally but I generally didn't roll on it when I was with my guild since that wasn't my mount toon. Well one time when I was in a PUG, I rolled and won. Once the mounts being account wide was announced, I was glad I didn't have to try and farm that one on my Hunter.

    Did HMGT everyday for 3 and a half months finally got it on my main early last year. Got both brewfest mounts on the same day last year on different characters. Actually just got the flame talon of alysrazor 2 nights ago while running for some transmorg stuff.

    I was gathering herbs in Storm Peaks on my paladin back in WotLK. I then saw a proto-drake coming at me and thought it was gonna attack me. So I killed it and noticed about five minutes later that I had this mount in my inventory. Turned out to be the TLPD.

    I also helped a friend in Stratholme back in early WotLK. I told him I'd only boost him if I could get the mount, should it drop. It dropped on the first kill. He then tried to ninja it but failed. I've never seen someone that pissed before.

    Finally I was healing heroic ZG on my druid back in 4.1. Both of the mounts dropped in there and I won both. The group demanded I handed over one of the mounts. I refused and got kicked from the dungeon 0o

    Haha I would have done the same. I'm lenient about passing up gear, but bloodthirsty when it comes to mounts.

    Well I have a few stories. In wrath I hit max level during ToC. I joined my first "real" raiding guild and we were doing VoA 10 man to try out some new players and the Mammoth dropped. Had no idea it was a rare mount let alone a multiple passenger and won the roll. I finally got enough gold to afford the swift flight form so I did the quest and no luck. The next day I was having horrible internet problems brought a friend in to kill 'em with me I dc'd logged back in the raven lord dropped rolled need and won because he rolled greed lol. While leveling the first day Cata came out I was in Deepholme and I saw a rare spawn dragon flying around had no idea what it was so I rode it. I didn't read the text on the screen and was just killing whelps confused for about 5 minutes and accidently tab attacked Aeonaxx and decided to just kill him. Got server first 90 druid as well! Lastly the second week of cata I downloaded NPC scan and was flying to do ToTFW and I see a camel figurine and it teleports me and I get the camel as well. I'm pretty lucky

    Got Ashes of Al'ar after 99 runs in total through my characters.

    Been running Firelands, Alysrazor (solo) since HoF was released got the mount a couple of weeks ago

    A month before pandaria or so, when the last big patch had been released DKs could solo the raptor boss in ZG when using the Purgatory talent, used that until Pandaria release and got the mount, dropped for me once before when I was duoing the boss but I lost the roll. Still haven't had the panther drop after about 200 kills, had the same luck with the tiger and the old raptor.

    my brother and i were pretty hardcore ZG farmers back in the day (before it was closed) and on the same day we got both the tiger and the raptor! (I won the tiger, he the raptor)

    and just for S&Gs last night we went into ZG for the first time since doing it once when it was re-released in cata... and I got the raptor! haha no panther for him we'll have to keep farming it!

    I miss both Zul'gurub's. But i got Ashes on my 36th attempt, Raven Lord on my 5th, the Hawkstrider in a run for fun, Fiert Warhorse after 40 attempts, Deathcharger after 50 attempts, Grand Black War Mammoth after 8 VoA clears, Red Battle Tank while waiting for a summon for ICC,
    And of course, both brewfest epic mounts and Headless'.

    ..However, after 100+ clears, i still miss Stonecore mount.

    Hmm lets see the best mount story I have is when I was maining my druid. It was somewhere between Cata and Wrath and I wanted the raven lord mount I wanted it bad. So, I spent a week trying to get that thing to no avail. I told myself when the week was up that I wold forget about the mount and and get back to every thing else I needed to do. A day or so later I was tanking a dungeon and got a tank bag low and behold the Raven Lord was in there. Also I snagged the Blue Proto-drake from a bag in the next dungeon queue.
    I'll do something witty and clever in this box one day...

    My mount story is fairly simple. Running through MSV hc farm with my guild as an offspec moonkin, the Elegon mount drops. I roll 87 and win the mount, to the great anger from my raid group. To this day... I do not even use it, as I am a druid and prefer flight form. It's only use is to show off in shrine and make my raid team jealous .

    Think my luckiest one was after running for Raven Lord for about a month it finally dropped, then I went to Stratholme an hour later and the Deathcharger dropped.

    Another lucky one (probably even better I guess) was when I was randomly checking the AH one time and saw a Spectral Tiger for 700g buyout, yes 700g and insta brought it ^^

    Back in Cata I quit WoW for a few months.
    My char was logged out in Deepholm - and the first time I logged in again after this time, I spawned directly next to Aeonaxx.
    I really laughed out loud IRL.

    I was farming ZG solo on my Druid every day since Patch 4.3, which meant I had over 50 solo kills of the Panther boss, with no mount drops. Then one day I run it with a friend, not expecting anything to drop. We kill Kilnara, and the Panther drops. Then my friend says "I don't want it, you can have it, just give me the next dungeon mount that drops!" and passed it. I won it with a roll of 2!

    Normally I'm not lucky with mounts though, I've lost the Firehawk from Rag more times than I have fingers

    I use to do the Original ZG on my Shaman and my Druid weekly with my boyfriend's Rogue and Druid. One day he went into ZG on his druid and got the Raptor. Naturally I was pissed because he already had it on his Rogue and I had 0 ZG mounts. So since Shaman were squish and he already had the Raptor on his Rogue we did it together. The Raptor didn't drop, but the Tiger did. He let me have it because I was mad about his alt getting the Raptor. Then I decided I would test my luck on my Druid... the Raptor dropped.

    So within a 30 minute period we got 3 mounts from ZG. Two Raptors and one Tiger. Probably the best mount luck we've had in the game.
