    I think mounts are in a good place myself, you don't need the mount from soundless or Sha, if you think they look great, there are lookalikes you can get very easily. If you want those very specific mounts though, you will need to do some farming.

    Noone needs to collect all the mounts, let there be some things left in the game for people that enjoy extensive farms. If you put every mount at 10% like some people suggest then the mount farming would be over in a single week for most "serious" mount farmers.

    I agree that some mounts should get increased drop chance. 1 in 10000 is just ridiculous like some of the mounts from worldbosses. Some sort of badluck protection would be nice too. For example I'm at almost 400 tries for ashes of alar and it might take another 400 tries if I'm insanely unlucky.

    the chance should be removed once a new expansion hits, make it tied to the cutting edge achievement, 99% of your mounts are irrelevant as most ppl will use less than 5 and never really change them.

    As a mount collector (over 570 unique)... the only one I'd be ok with and I know others would be ok with is Soundless. No one should have to grind a rare with a potentially 8 hr spawn for a less than 1% drop. Especially after BFA when people that come across it will just one shot it, which means good luck ever getting a tag on one character let alone multiple.

    At the very least, make him spawn MUCH faster (ex. every 30 mins or hell every 5 mins)

    I'm close to 2k for the world bosses I still need. They're fine at 1 in 2k.

    This has nothing to do with being elite. You didnt put any effort into getting that mount. All you did was pressing button and one shot boss. And you should never be rewarded for such low amounth of effort. Its absolote content and it should not reward anything.
    You're right, they should just delete all old content from the game, no point in it being there. And mount/transmog/toy farms? Pfft, that doesn't keep people subscribed at all...

    You are absolutely being elitist. Nothing necessarily wrong with that, but there is a lot wrong with disingenuously claiming you're not while simultaneously saying that some kind of challenge must be involved to get rewards. If the game operated by your logic, the only thing that would give loot is M+15s and Mythic raids. Everything else is about the same level of 'challenge' as Sha, just extended over a longer period of time.

    Be thankful that it's not being removed with every new expansion. Just keep your head down and grind it, you'll get it eventually.

    I'd prefer if they just outright made a weekly event focused around legacy collections. It could be something like a guaranteed piece of transmoggable bonus loot from every boss killed with legacy loot active, and maybe a doubled chance for mount drops during the week.

    Since most mount drops are still around the 1%, that'd merely put them at 2% etc, so nothing "gamebreaking"

    they could add a effort reward buff.
    i know people with 700 kills to get Onyxia mount.
    why not an increased drop chance every time you fail to get it?

    a extra 0.1% drop every time you fail or maybe 0.05%

    if people is farmign it with 100+ kill they deserve a kind of "determination buff"

    1% is fine, anyone complaining about 1% should be ignored. It's the super rare ones, the 0.03% drops, they are the problem. Basically just MoP worldbosses and Rukhmar. And yes, Soundless also-- it isn't quite as rare as Sha's but he spawns much slower.

    And I have one of the MoP worldboss mounts and the Soundless mount myself, if that matters.

    So? thats the same for me and the love rocket. 10 years on 20+ chars each year to get this pink di***

    So, yes its rng and it shouldnt be changed its fine as its now.

So a .1% drop rate, say it was increased to a 10% drop chance which i agree is HUGE increase is still only good for 4 runs.
    I mount farm a lot as my primary activity. I gear my toons to be powerful enough to do previous content raids for transmog and mounts. I buy my heroic AOTC carry so that I can have the mount. It saves farming it next (or the one after) expansion for a 1% "listed" drop rate. Listed is in parenthesis because as a player, you really have no reliable source for the drop rate. Blizzard has just applied the usual drop rate to most raid boss mounts. They have also managed to remove them from the loot table occasionally and had to put them back after player questioning. Those who get a mount usually think everything is fine as would someone who wins at a slot machine. I have what I consider to be a lot of rare mounts that were farmed over more than a decade and I don't think things are fine. I feel that RNG is a discouraging/disappointing aspect of the game for a large number of folks who farm a mount. Over 1K kills and still no Invincible? That to me is not a good system. 400+ kills and no Zulian Panther? Not very good if you haven't gotten it yet.

    1. Bad Luck Protection: for me, it worked very well in Legion concerning Legendaries. It gave me the incentive that provided I did certain activities, I would gain a Legendary (not a targeted one). Add a protection buff for that specific mount of perhaps .75% per run on each character that you use. If you want to have 50 toons that you farm mounts with or one toon....you would have knowledge of working towards an attainable goal and still rely on some aspect of RNG that is improving. You still do the required activity (mount run) because you know that it is slowly working to move the odds in your favor even to the point of 100% drop chance.

    2. Mount Tokens: every toon that makes a mount run gains a token specific to that mount. Make them account bound not character specific. If you are a farmer with 35 toons that run ICC for Invincible, then you would have 35 tokens per week for him. Set a cost of 500 tokens for that mount. In a bit over 3 1/2 months you would have enough tokens to buy him. Sounds outrageous timewise except that the amount of runs is the same as one toon taking almost 10 years to do the same. Unfair to folks with less toons able to farm him? Right now there is a 100% XP boost on for leveling.... make more high level toons and go farm.

    My mounts don't provide me with much epeen.... I don't hang around the door of the Great Seal like a peacock. They provide me with graphic satisfaction and I don't care how many folks ride the same mount. I don't care how they got it. Bought it off the BMAH, bought a carry, got lucky first run, finally got it after 2K runs. I really don't care as long as they are happy with what they have to ride. If you don't like Tokens....throw yours out after every run. Don't like Bad Luck Protection....throw your first two mount drops away and ride the third. Change the system to give folks a tangible idea of the mount drop. As in all things concerning WoW....stay safe and have fun!

    And no, elitist ego's will survive other people getting the same stuff.



    "Oh no, you were 10 when it came out and couldnt play, so fuck you!"

    Great argument, while also totally ignoring the whole run selling, which means you could literally buy the mount via real money from buying gold for the run.
    Yep token should also be removed its cancer of this game.

    Thing is it feels good if you get that rare item but it's also kind of a flawed system. If you like doing Love Rocket on 20 chars daily for 2 weeks for 10 years that's fine, but personally I think there's small changes they could make so it's less punishing for those who have farmed it for an insane amount of times.

    Lets be honest... almost NOBODY likes to do this, we do it because some kind of OCD (must have all mentality) and when you finally get it, you are not happy that you got it but its like "fuck finally this shit will never see me again". World boss mounts and love rocket are compleatly stupid things to farm and only people with somekind of OCD farms them for years... I was one of those that was doing it for years, with 30-40+ chars some years and i needed literally mentally said to my self STOP, this shit is not healthy, now i do world bosses or dont (99% of weeks i dont, or if i do do it with only couple of chars, after thousands of kills already), however i still do love rocket with as many chars as im eligible with that years (usually 20+).... because its "only 2 weeks, i can suffer for 2 weeks"....

    I can relate and I feel that pain with some farms (Love Rocket however I kinda gave up on and I just do it daily on 1-2 chars now) but would anyone really complain if they added some 'bad luck protection' in the form of the droprate increasing a bit once you hit certain numbers - let's say every 100 attempts you gain a few % on the droprate of the love rocket - because after all you can only farm it for 2 weeks in a whole year. Certain raid mounts are a pain as well, something like Siege that takes like 45 mins to run through even at max level and you can only do it once per week per character. Is it really that bad if they added a system that gave you a higher droprate after you hit certain crazy numbers?

    Well, i wouldnt, since i lack more then half of them, however i understand some that suffered and eventually managed to get all would be "slightly salty ". Look when you have couple of thousands of kills and you still dont have mounts, you wish they would increase drop chance, however also you need to look from other side, if you have couple of thousands of kills and manage to get them all, you would get salty they didnt increase drop chance when you farmed to, to make things easier for you... Also other thing is, if this "bad luck" protection would not be for account wide kills, its kinda pointless because imagine getting to 100 kills on single char on world boss that you can kill once/week, thats almost 2 years for what 1% more?... thats almost nothing... or love rocket when you can do 14 kills whole year on a single char... i dont think mounts with 1% drop chance should be fixed really, that can be farmed with few 10s of alts in timely manner, however mounts that have 1:2000 or worse, i feel really really sad during love rocket event when you see peoples addons that goes 7000, 10000 kills... and still no love rocket (when i have like half of those kills) -.-

    Nah. Do the raidmounts when content is current and the others are luck-prestige mounts. If everyone has them no one uses them and they are worth nothing other than another üpoint to the mount achivement.

    I've been farming for the stone drake mount drop in the deep Holm dungeon since Cata launched. Still no drop all these years later
