How to Easily Obtain the Frostbrood Proto-Wyrm Promotion Mount on Live Servers

Recommended Posts

Our latest mini guide covers how to easily unlock Frostbrood Proto-Wyrm, the Wrath Classic promotion mount, on live servers, even when you don't play Classic.

How to Easily Earn Frostbrood Proto-Wyrm Mount in WoW

1. Buy a World of Warcraft subscription if your account is currently inactive.

2. Open Battle.net and download Wrath Classic.

3. Log in to the game, browse all servers and sort them by population. Pick the realm with the lowest population to avoid long queue times

4. Create a Death Knight character. Your first Death Knight created in any realm (except for fresh realms) is free of restrictions, according to Blizzard, so you WON'T NEED AN EXISTING LEVEL 55 CHARACTER ON THE SAME REALM.

5. Complete the Death Knight introduction questline. Your character must finish the questline leading to the point where you enter your faction's capital city and talk to your leader. For Alliance characters, you must complete the "Where King Walks" quest. For Horde players, the counterpart is named "Warchief's Blessing". The intro takes about 2 hours to complete.

6. At this point, you should automatically receive the mount on live servers. Find out by logging in to the live version of the game.

The promotion ends on November 28 with the release of the Dragonflight expansion.

Took less than an hour or two to do but had to remind myself to select and use talent points when finishing quests and leveling up.

Mostly when leveling up, opening talent window after dinging a level is still habit. I had forgotten that they awarded you your 10-55 talents in chunks through quest completion.

It's telling us we DO need an existing level 55 character.

The only restriction is that it can't be on a fresh start server.

Thanks!  I tried again but this time selected a 'medium' pop realm, and wahlah...

/trophy for you

 

*edit to add, everything worked great.  Finished the intro quest chain and made it to SW, turned last quest into king, exited and logged back into retail and wahlah... mount!

WOW has released that the end date for this mount's promotion is Nov. 28th when Dragonflight releases. Per the battle.net opening page. 

I've updated the OP. Thanks for the reminder! 🙂

      Another year, another (few) hundred attempts at the Love Rocket/X-45 Heartbreaker mount for a lot of players. Love Is in the Air ended a while ago, and players have been comparing how they did in THE most arduous mount grind available in WoW today (yes, move over Invincible, you’re just a common drop in comparison).
      We have players that have been going at it for FIFTEEN years now, with no luck, running the dungeon for the mount on many different characters - but some managed to strike gold this year! So, let’s take a look at some player reactions at getting the mount, or, more likely, not.
      First we have the eternals as I call them, who have been going at it for a LONG time. Bob claims to have been trying for 20 years and still didn’t get one (but seeing as the event has only been around for 15 years, he's exaggerating a little - but it definitely feels like 2 decades), but that hasn’t stopped him from he will trying again next year.
      “Honestly - 20 years and still no drop? That’s insane. I can respect rare drops, but fuck this shit.They talk about ‘higher chance on first character’ and ‘bad luck protection’ - but it’s BS for the Love Rocket (or the new name).Edit: I’m a bit less pissed knowing there are others out there. Good luck to you all next year.“ - ItsFuckinBob
      “I've had every other holiday mount for 10+ years and yet the love rocket still eludes me. I run it on about 10 toons every day for the duration of the event for the past 15 years” - Forsaken-Let8739

      But that’s not all when it comes to rarity, as plenty of players have not only not gotten the mount, they’ve never even seen anyone get it in the many, many groups they’ve run the dungeon with! Now that’s partly due to the mount not dropping as loot directly, but it’s still pretty demotivating.
      "That's the crazy thing. In all my years running to get it, I've never seen it drop for anyone." - JayIT
      Even looking at just the current year, players are putting an insane amount of time for the mount, with no luck:
      "750 kills, 30 hours in the dungeon, no mount or saddle drop. Guess I'll just have to get it next year ?" - DeeRez

      There actually are those that do get it, and here are some that have ended their suffering this year:
      "15 years I got mine this year… 30 toons a day I did about 400 runs this year it will drop!" - jvaughn95
      "I've done it since the event was introduced into game and finally got it this year (there is hope!). I just stared blankly at the screen and very calmly said "I got it..." and my husband whirled around and was like what? the mount? YOU GOT IT! - he sounded more excited than me lol. I was just numb after years of trying. So glad!
      Now the saddle won't drop but oh well XD" - NeoSakurie

      And then, of course, there are the (much disliked) lucky ones:
      "Got mine on 2nd run.." - shittysituationz
      "I was away for work for all but 2 days of the event I have 2 max lvl toons got it day 2 ?" - sueybro
      "Ran it for years now but this year I went HARD. 14+ characters per day and I leveled 2 of them during the event! My WIFE walks in one time this event and gets it. Once. I'm not angry I love that she has it but ooooooh my goooooooood blizzard can we please just have a 500 run achievement for it or something at this point. I'm sure I'm close." - PolyWolyDoodal
      "My wife just dropped it after 3rd attempt. I am fuming." - xdCms

      And then there are people like roughschematics, who have a pretty good argument on the whole thing, trying to break the cycle of people getting more and more annoyed chasing the mount:
       
      So, how did you fare this year? How long have you been at the hunt, and when exactly did it start to annoy you? Or have you just been ignoring it entirely?

      A Hunter player had their account suspended because of their pet's default name.
      For some reason, the account was reported and suspended because the pet was named "Carrion Bird". What's both hilarious and unfortunate is that the player didn't even choose the name; it's the default name given in the game when you tame the pet.
      Hopefully, the ban will get overturned, since it's probably automated and unintended.
