    Vanity rewards from Island Expedition

    Hi guys.

    I am wondering if any of you guys have obtained some of the vanity items from the expeditions. A few guildies of mine have done a ton (50+ mythic) and only recieved a few pets and such. Is the drop rates just really low?

    Have you guys obtained any of the mounts?

    Edit:

    Warcraft-Secrets editors have collected a ton of info, regarding the rewards. They track data for which rewards seems to be associsated with which mobs etc. A link to the results can be found here:

    I've yet to get anything, although I've admittedly only done them on Heroic so far, and just enough to get my weekly lol

    I have done ~200k Azerite across 2 chars or so and has obtained 4 rep items (1 CoA, 2 Honorbound, 1 Voldunai). A mix of HC/Mythic

    Haven't gotten anything but the currency for Island Expeditions.

    Farming those mounts is going to be the most tedious thing ever. Blizzard really must see something in these Island Expeditions that I don't.
    Blood Elves are basically High Elves. Slightly different eye color and backstory, but if you want to be a light skinned elf, that is basically a Blood Elf. Giving that to the Alliance would blur the line between factions.-Ion Hazzikostas: Game Director for World of Warcraft

    I only did a bunch of heroic expeditions last week, and got one item for Jani. And there are so many things to get... *sigh*

    Have you guys got more stuff during this week? As there was a hotfix saying that sometimes rewards was not given.

    Not 100%, but I think the individual mounts might be from specific Islands maps. This might not matter initially, but could be useful for gathering the last mounts down the line (If your map is not up, you should not spam que).

    IMO you should at least get a bag with a random reward every second or third island guaranteed, at LEAST. A pool of a hundred items with, I bet, the possibility to get duplicates at the current drop rate is just.. impossible to target anything.

    I'd way rather having things purchased with Doubloons to this. I was all down for grinding them out until I have everything, but the current rate is honestly just making me wanna quit after I get exalted with Honourbound on each character.

    A reward system isn't much of a reward system if it encourages people not to bother, instead of incentivising play.

    If you can get duplicates its pretty stupid TBH. I hope? you can't get duplicates of the pets, moutns and such.

    Ideally not, but after Legion Invasions (~11 weapons with a low drop rate where you could get duplicates), Argus treasure chests (armour set pieces with a low drop rate where you could get duplicates) and Argus Invasion Points (mercifully 2 weapons per named invasion point with a low drop rate but you could get duplicates) I'm erring on the side of expecting you can get the same reward item, except MAYBE the mounts, multiple times.

    I would way prefer a guaranteed reward every 3-5 Islands, and to never receive a duplicate. It'd still take like a thousand to get all the mounts/pets/mogs, but at least it would feel like an achievable goal, you know? One of the things that motivates collectors to undertake ridiculously long-term tasks that keeps them subbed is the ability to know they can finish a checklist. Taking that away seems to do more harm than good in the name of making things 'rarer'.

    Just got the Poro pet from a normal expedition. Terrible group and we lost.

  17. #17
    Did like 30 total (normal, heroic and mythic as well as pvp) and I only got 1 rep item for Voldunai..

    Do mounts only drop from mythic? Cause I'll likely never do those. Been guildless for ages and have no plans of changing that

    They can drop from any difficulty.
    Isn't it ironic how education is important, yet people forget all about it when they visit the internet?

    I think you can pug those. Probably as more people get 120 more groups will show up
