    For anyone not rushing the rep it's probably advisable to wait until next weekend to turn in your jelly to get the DMF buff. At least the stuff isn''t soulbound so killing the giant on each 120 seems reasobnably productive (assuming people don't kite it - such a small leash area once engaged which is odd as it patrol a reasonably sized area)

    backpack wise, I cannot afford to hoard jellies; I have a chronic lack of space, so those 3 slots are more important than 10% rep.

    Apart from the rep, you also need to feed the bee. You can't skip that part, so you need to collect a lot of the jelly anyway.

    Are you 100% sure about that?

    I'm pretty sure the bar on the bee, moves when you kill Honey Smasher, i.e. working towards progress.

    You need to feed the bee. I handed in some rep items from rares, don't recall it moving the bar at all. Just the faction rep.

    Yes I am sure.

    The bar on the bee is a separate thing from reputation. You need both exalted reputation, and the bar on the bee completed.

    By the way, hanging out in the zone is a good idea, even afk, people call out events, which often drop quest items for 750 rep or so, and other stuff. There are also some pets from those events afaik.

    I checked yesterday. Before (and after) killing Honey Smasher, I was at 317/3500 on the bee's bar. So it seems you are right.
    HS dropped a rare and epic jelly, which I handed in, and rare moved it to 337/3500 and epic to 377/3500 (20 and 40 respectively).

    Rep was as expected.

    Got 3 new ones this week, which brings me to a total of 464 mounts usable on a single character (paladin)

    Snapback Scuttler (Nazjatar meta achievement) got this one week late because I messed up the selection in Mardivas once. Cool mount, More of a time sink than luck I guess.



    Honeyback Harvester (not really rare I guess, but one of the mounts I really like actually, I hope we'll get more cool designs and different stuff than just drakes, wyrms and other repeated models) Managed to get this little boy on day 5 of it being out.



    Last but not least, finally finished the glory of EP and got the Azshari Bloatray today

    Dropped finally today. Started camping on my main, then brought 7 alts to Mechagon one after the other. Considering I took a 1 months holiday where I couldn't play and initially was busy getting Pathfinder 2 (and didn't much know who dropped mounts) - I guess I got it in under 250 kills.

    PTR but the new island expedition salvage vendor is nuts. You can buy boxes from the current islands for 175 coins per box. So far I've opened 3 mounts from the Havenswood box (bat, undead horse, moose) and one mount from the dread chain box (yeti). Sample size is about 15 boxes.

    Then I opened about 15 skittering hollow and got nothing but cloth transmog sets and pets.

    Currently playing Borderlands 1 remaster. Amped for Borderlands 3.

    Someone define "rare" for me.

    Half of the mounts I see being posted on here aren't rare at all. Some of them aren't even uncommon.

    Does anyone else find it ironic that, as your virtual character gains experience, wealth and social stature, your reality character is losing the exact same things at the same rate?

    I know, right? The mounts that take time to grind out like Glory metas or 'always on a vendor/achievement' seem to be posted here. Sad how some people just spout out tired old internet phrases in response to your legit post.
    Isn't it ironic how education is important, yet people forget all about it when they visit the internet?

    Rare drops. If they had to be rare for a fact, then nobody could post aside from people having black tanks, Heavenly Onyx Cloud serpents or Love Rockets...

    If you're a gamer, you should be familiar with the concept.
    Over time it's also been extended to a simple Mount Appreciation Thread. Someone posting a vendor mount is a hell of a lot less of a derail than your post, I'd say.

    But ya'll stay salty, I guess.

    Jeeeebus wept, this will keep me busy whether I like it or not, I REALLY want the Quilen mount from Islands...

    If you or a loved one wants a Hamster (any kind), consider going with a custom cage. Most of the retail cages, even the biggest, are simply too small for the hamster's well-being. There are far cheaper solutions using IKEA furniture, for example, that also results in a more stylish habitat that's bigger and easier to match with your decor! I use the IKEA Detolf + KALLAX solution! Check it out! Another clever and even cheaper solution is converting the IKEA SAMLA Bin!

    Silent Glider is mine now! 370 attempts, but many of those were done via multi-logging, and there is a major debate in the community whether those work or not, so probably closer to about 280-300 attempts when I 'cross those out'.

    Those who are still going for it, remember to search for LFG groups and join a community (i know they exist on EU, not sure about US and other regions) - helps massively.

    Yeah we could definitely argue what rare means, and it probably means different things to different people. Personally I post some mounts that aren't exactly rare from time to time, but I usually try to group them up with something that is rare indeed. Glory meta might not be rare/hard to get for you, but it sure is for many, in fact, it's probably unobtainable for many players until after the content is outdated. Vendor mounts? Sure, not hard to get them for some, but for others, getting 1 or 5 mil gold, or even just 900k is hard. Even something like a bee mount is kind of a hot thing in the first week after release, though of course now everyone has them. We could go even further with thoughts like that: are 1% raid drop mounts even rare? If you have like 10+ characters you can bruteforce most of them within a couple weeks, but then you still have people with 1 character who farm them for years. Should they not be allowed to share their "achievement"?

    In the end, this thread is about sharing new mount acquisitions you are happy about, and some positivty around that. It's not exactly about putting up requirements as to which mounts are worthy of being posted and which aren't. So yes, people will be spouting 'tired old internet phrases' because this thread is essentially a circlejerk and everyone is happy about it. Coming in and ranting about it doesn't help anyone.
