    Sadly, I have not gotten the pet. Worst case scenario I'll just buy it later. I'm getting close to my 3rd paragon chest just by doing Korthia for weekly renown + the ooze quests for achievements. Renown caps next week for Korthia content though, so if I don't get the pet in the 3rd I'll have to spend the 40k-ish on the pet probably

    Wow, multiple archivists' paragon chests in 9.1.0! That's insane, I always planned on doing it in 9.1.5 when rep will be dramatically easier to get.

    Content sometimes gets easier with time, but I personally don't play the game to wait for months and do the content once it's outdated, I prefer to do it when it's hot

    Also, have not heard anything about archivist paragons getting easier. Is that just a guess or do we know something already?

    Man I'm literally 0 for Koritha rares in like 100 attempts on the various mobs, starting to feel bad about it lol. Got both of the grind ones, Mawshrooms and Eggs.

    I havn't got a screenshot, but was very very lucky to get the slow riding turtle from the card game.
    Just opened some packages which I got as a present from my brother.
    Dont play the card game at all, but would like the white rhino mount.

    Sadly they added that one to the Garrison with WoD ... so it's value is basically 0.

    True.

    Yes, there are a bunch of passive buffs you can get in 9.1.5 that make a ton more research drop in Korthia. Check 9.1.5 patchnotes.

    Benefit of the riding turtle mounts is that they're water mounts that don't instantly dismount you when you leave the water. They're better than the water-only ones.

    I am as of yesterday on 4 attempts for this guy. Usually if you get everything from treasures and most rares, you get an average of 800-1200 rep. Sometimes if lucky you can reach up to 2k. The rep is slow true but use the resources to get all conduits to max ilvl would be good before 9.2 comes out.

    I didn't really want to farm this mount, but got lucky after ~16 tries this year (not sure how often I tried since TBC):



    Edit: got lucky several hours later:

    These are really rare.

    Are you aware you need specific covenant characters for covenant mount rares? Maybe that is the problem?

    I feel you, this rep might be one of the most involving in a long time. If you're unlucky with those 1h-cooldown rares it might take like 3 hours a day.

    Finally done with Mechagon. Rarity is incorrect, the actual number of kills should be around 900:

    These last few weeks, I was able to get: the Hand of Nilganihmaht, the Hand of Bahmethra, the Brewfest Ram, the Soulbound Gloomcharger's Reins, and finally the Headless Horseman's Reins (a few days ago). Just when I stopped mount farming, luck drives me to get back to the grind! Maybe they nerfed the drop chance, bc I felt like I was gonna puke seeing those Holiday mounts in my bags after all these years.

    Got this on the 9.1.5 release date. Was finally able to solo guldan on all 4 SL mains. Previously only did 1 + 1 with a mate. Ended up getting it fairly quickly all things considered.

    My first box had it. I've never had that happen before.
