How the Secret Hivemind Mount Works

Recommended Posts

Celestalon clarified in a series of tweets how the secret The Hivemind The Hivemind mount works.

The multi-person capability is a special perk for the Hivemind group (the 5 people you last completed it with) and the final ritual is what establishes the link. Each player in a said group increases the mount's speed by 10% (Joined Hivemind Joined Hivemind). If you completed the final puzzle with a random group, you will need to complete it again with a different group for the speed bonus.

Check out the guide over at Warcraft Secrets if you still haven't obtained the mount.

SUCH BULLCRAP!  we have 2 seater mounts with no restrictions, we have 3 seater mounts with no restrictions, what the hell is 2 more players gonna hurt to make it 5! I mean sure sure you have to have found the mount in order to join into another one, but this restriction of  "(the 5 people you last completed it with)"  is just silly!

I mean....this is a bit awkward, isn't it? As i understand, you can transport only other members who finished the ritual last with you. So it means this mount is worth less than any other transport mount because only this 4 people can join your mount?

Why not just letting 5 people join and increase travel speed for each person? Why does it matter if you finished the ritual? How is that a good design? I mean i fully agree, it has to be limitted...well it would be quite funny a whole raid pops out of the mount 😄 . But really, just the 5 people who last finished the ritual with you?

This feels like it was designed to be a mythic+ mount, for dedicated groups of people who run together on a consistent basis, trying to push keys.

Am I mistaken in that you can mount with 5 people with no limitation, but the extra 10% per person is only granted when it is those who completed the ritual with you?

It looks that way, I had the same thought but the tooltip reads: "joins with the target, a member of your hivemind" and "other members of your hivemind may join you".

 

This suggests it's a single seater for anyone else

Last night doing exped's and random things with a few guildies who have not yet gotten this mount were able to mount mine and my gf's hivemind. So I assume that's a bug for them to be able to mount?

Can't we find this mount alone? or do we need a group?

You physically need 5 people in your group for the final stages (suramar and beyond).  Cannot complete it otherwise.

LFG groups abounded last night when I looked, took five minutes to complete a group formup.

SUGGESTIONS:

Red's the costly monocle, couple K gold easy (recommend Vashjir Seahorse!).  Yellow s the biggest PITA with the puzzle in Uldum, Green is easy mode in skyreach, and blue is just lots of hearthstone travelling.

Do as many of the monocles as you are absolutely comfortable with.  the group of 5 needs all 4 monocles total, meaning at least one person needs each color, and a fifth to find the doorway item.

make sure your combat log is on and tracking damage to you only, you need the amount youre hit for, and sifting through it is a pita if its not set up that way.

WOWHEAD guide is highly accurate currently, learn it well!!!

Discord or other voice is super helpful but we did it without just fine.

BE PATIENT.  some steps are confusing AF until you get them figured out in practice.

Just acquired this mount last Saturday with a few Guild Mates of mine.  Had to do the Yellow Monocle.....took me over 2.5 hrs switching all colors to one.  And now I have a worthless 5 seat mount that I and I alone will only use.

      Ivan Kuzkin is back with another mix , with a bit more focus on the PvE side of WoW esports, with Mythic+ getting a prominent chunk, followed by the Arena action similar to what's we've already seen, but featuring a brand new first-person outlaw Rogue PoV. This is all built with IKedit's trademark amazingly fluid animations and crazy armor effects any warrior would kill for (and kill with, as it happens).

      Yesterday, we previewed Great Vault, the new weekly chest of Shadowlands, but many players were confused about how the rewards from Mythic Dungeons will be calculated, so here's are some clarifications.
      To unlock more loot choices in the Great Vault, you must complete the following objectives related to Mythic Dungeons:
      Slot #1: Complete 1 Mythic Dungeon Slot #2: Complete 5 Mythic Dungeons Slot #3: Complete 15 Mythic Dungeons If you complete 15 Mythic Dungeons in a week, you will be able to choose from up to 3 items.
      Your reward is based on the lowest level of your top 1 (Slot #1), 5 (Slot #2), and 15 (Slot #3) runs. Redditor zawyer90 posted an image and explained how the system works, so helping your friend with a Mythic +5 run will not affect your weekly item choices.

      We have a bunch of retail and Classic hotfixes today, leaning heavily on the Classic side, with the Ectoplasmic Distiller fix and epic Draconic pages.
      July 31 (source)
      tems and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Reverted the recent change made on the interaction between Fist of Justice and Ineffable Truth for Holy and Protection Paladins. WoW Classic
      The Ectoplasmic Distiller quest item no longer generates threat. Developers’ note: Ordinarily we err on the side of authenticity when it comes to clever use of mechanics in Classic, even if we believe the original development team would have made a change given the same information we now have. The Ectoplasmic Distiller presents a rare exception mainly due to its severity: this new discovery of an unintended mechanic would completely trivialize most threat gameplay in raids for the remainder of Classic if left unchecked, including upcoming bosses in Ahn’Qiraj and Naxxramas. The pages for the quest “Draconic for Dummies” are now Epic quality. Developers’ note: We’re changing the item quality on "Draconic for Dummies" quest pages to Epic (purple) so that they'll be easier to distribute to the correct person in raids using Group Loot or Master Looter.

      Male Night Elves have gained a new Blindfold customization option category in the latest Shadowlands Beta build.
      Blindfolds will no longer be exclusive to select Face options in Shadowlands, as Male Night Elves received Blindfolds as a separate customization option. Currently, there is only one single Blindfold available for the race, as displayed below.

      Don't forget to check out the new Night Elf Male and Night Elf Female customization options that are coming in Shadowlands!
