Some More REALLY Good Luck With Mount Drops

Recommended Posts

It's time to hate envy enjoy other people's crazy luck again! We're taking a look at some insane mount drops and, on a personal note, one particularly annoying/hate worthy double-binding drop, so let's get to it!

We'll start with the iconic, the classic duo many players grinding years or perhaps even a decade+ for... which Bereadytocry managed to get in 1 day. Here's perhaps the most recognizable two mounts in the game:

The Ashes are always a popular one, and the 2 extremely rare mounts in 1 day trend continues:

But 2 cool mounts in one day just isn't enough for some people, so they have to 1-up the above with 2 Zul'Gurub mounts in 1 RUN:

But hey, why stop at 1 run... why not 1 BOSS? Here's 2 drakes from Deathwing!

Speaking of one boss, here's a more contemporary one, with timewalking bringing many players new mounts... and bringing arhenART both the Reins of the Blue Proto-Drake Reins of the Blue Proto-Drake AND the Reins of the Infinite Timereaver Reins of the Infinite Timereaver from the same boss:

And now the final insult, the one that may be keeping me up at night, as I've been farming the second Binding for about 10+ years (and have given up since), one of the rarer drops in WoW: the double Bindings of the Windseeker Bindings of the Windseeker from a single MC run. I hate you Bothani7!!1111

So, what's your rarest drop luck been in your time with WoW?

If only I was so lucky when I was farming them. Took me over 4 years to get Invincible

I've been playing since Wrath, and Arthas is still being a stingy *filtered* mofo with his pony. 😒

I don't think I've ever been "lucky" in WoW in that way. I remember waiting for months and months and months for Ashkhandi back in BWL, the already mentioned bindings etc etc. It didn't bother me much though (ok the Askhandi thing did but cos it was a progress issue).

A Friend of mine and me were doing a fun Onyxias Lair run, who could beat her faster. In the End we both killed her within seconds and we both got the mount. This was the first run ever to both of us 😄

My luckiest time in Wow was when I only had to kill Elegon 235 times to get his mount.

My guild Gravity on Tanaris-US 10/31/2006 were lucky enough to find both Thunderfury bindings on the same MC clear, approx 2 months after the server opened! My then Orc Warrior Semarri was wielding his Thunderfury roughly 2-3 weeks after farming all of the mats on this few month old server. I'll dig around see if I can find any screenshots on old computers and post them to the thread!

      We're back for week two of Sanctum Mythic, with many more guilds having downed a LOT more bosses (but still very few in the second part of the raid - only 60ish guilds actually got past Painsmith so far) and so we're going to take a look at both Mythic and Heroic again this week, still focusing primarily on Heroic.
      Important Note: In terms of Mythic stats, while they're not yet representative of the entire Sanctum of Domination raid, they do show some solid stats for bosses 1-5, which is where basically the entire playerbase is anyway in that difficulty. The early bosses are still dominating/"tainting" the numbers in Mythic though, so take that into consideration as well.
       
      Heroic Rankings
      We're starting with 95th percentile Heroic once more, as it's still the more accurate of the two difficulties for log stats. Things changed a lot here since last week as well, as the Moonkings are back on their throne after a long time sitting there in Nathria. But last week's other top specs are still here, as Arms and Arcane fill out the top 3 once more, and the biggest mover in the top is Feral, which jumps 7 spots to complete the top 5, right behind Subtlety which also hopped up a spot or two. Havoc and Assassination are also on the rise, while Elemental has fallen the most since last week and Fire remains in dead last. Windwalkers actually fall quite a bit here, in stark contrast to the Mythic rankings, while the second half of the chart hosts the same specs as last week.

      95th percentile Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
      The ever slower-moving all percentiles bracket has a swap in Rogues at the top, as Subtlety takes the crown, but the top 3 stays the same. However, Feral is coming up fast here as well, basically swapping places with Demonology, showing it is a very popular and effective pick among many players. Elemental is losing popularity here, same as in the top percentiles, while Outlaw is slowly digging its way out of the bottom.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Mythic Rankings
      Affliction is still extremely strong on Mythic, mostly due to the earlier bosses very much favoring the spec, with Windwalkers coming pretty much out of nowhere as more bosses enter the mix, and the spec takes the lead. Arms reprises its Heroic role as a top spec here as well, so we know that's a very real stat, while Retribution and Fire also jump almost half the rankings to get into the top 10.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      If the Mythic all percentiles chart is looking visually weird to you, you can thank those few Windwalkers that destroyed the top-end parses, as they're waay out ahead here, but even that crazy performance wasn't enough to clinch the No.1 spot. The rest of the rankings are just a big jumble, with Fire and Frost Dks very high, Shadow and Elemental at the bottom and more weirdness.

      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here, or for even more data, head on over to Warcraft Logs.

      We have a really cool one to check out today, as two of not only the best players in the world talk about pretty much everything that happened during the Sanctum Race to World first!
      We have now World Champion Rogerbrown, Echo Co-CEO and Complexity-Limit GM and Raid Leader Max having a very candid and friendly talk about: the Shards of Domination and how they impacted the race; going through the raid and race, boss-by-boss, composition-by-composition; talking about most specs (Shadow Priest over-estimation at the start etc.); the way the very best players in the game anywhere can just sit on the bench for an entire raid due to their spec being not optimal; the crazy minute details on the final moments on Sylvanas; the optimal race duration; whether we'll see 1 or 2 more raids; and so, so much more.
      It's a long stream VoD, coming in at 5 and a half hours, but if you're at all interested in the race, it's an absolute must-watch!

      According to Jeff Hamilton, Senior System Designer on Warcraft, there's almost no work being done on World of Warcraft right now.  
      Due to the ongoing lawsuit, WoW development seems to have been temporarily impacted, which benefits nobody, not players, not the developers, or shareholders, according to Senior System Designer Jeff Hamilton.
      Placeholder for tweet 1419115702569472003 We are not sure at this time if this will delay Patch 9.2 or even 9.1.5, depending on what will be unveiled in the near future (likely at Gamescom).

      Here's some Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper, aka the Sylvanas bow-related news, as players have been receiving Heroic upgrade tokens after having it drop with a lower item level prior to the hotfix, as well a look at a very lucky guild.
      First things first, the issue that was hotfixed last week, which was causing the bow to drop at the Normal difficulty item level in both Heroic and Mythic, had many players receive a worse bow. According to Wowhead, tickets sent about that issue are now getting positive responses, with players actually receiving upgrade items for the appropriate difficulty they got the bow from! That's a really solid upgrade from 233 on Normal to 246 on Heroic, so if you've had this happen to you, make sure to make a support ticket!
      The other statistically interesting piece of news is that a guild actually managed to get three bow from one kill! As reported by otrew 3 out of their 4 Hunters got the bow on a Normal Sylvanas kill (and the 4th one wasn't too happy about it). And the kicker? The third bow wasn't even looted from the chest, but came in the mail later!

      We've seen some crazy low boss wipes and kills, but very few on this high a level, as Club Camel have downed Sylvanas Windrunner in the Sanctum of Domination Mythic and finished the Race to World First in overall 8th place and US 3rd... with only 1 player alive! Shmeezi basically soloed the final 0.1% or so and spared the guild possibly quite a few more pulls. Congrats!
