Been farming the Tiger since February. I will be extremely pissed if it doesn't drop by the time Cataclysm hits...
I have been farming these mounts and have not missed more then 2 lockouts in a very very very long time. I solo it every three days. I have the raptor mount, got two raptor pets, and that Tiger will NOT drop.
Glad I already have both the raptor and tiger. Also had the poly turtle tomb since ZG came out. + selling 20+ of them in BC for 3-5k+ gold.
Trolls be regeneratin' mon!
"Gone as a raid instance" does not say it's gone from the game. Probably means it's going to be a 5 man dungeon or something else and no longer a raid.Its no longer going to be a instance....you can fly into ZG in cataclysm. This reminds me of the no longer can get amani war bear from ZA.
ZG gone, damn! Lucky I already got my mounts from this place! GL to others going for them!
The only saber mount a Horde can get and the only Raptor mount an alliance can get. ><;; Sure I can farm up a Ram from Brewfest, and the alliance can get kodos, a chicken and an undead mount, but honestly Raptors and cats are the best mounts in the game!It's lame there isn't a replacement for these mounts. I've been farming them on and off for years and still haven't seen them drop.I guess it'll be just like the Amani bear. >>;;And here GC was saying like a week ago that "Blizzard isn't about taking away farmable mounts".I guess that they've given up on their word about that, too.
Seeing as there's rumors of stuff destroyed by Cata being made available in some ways, I wouldn't be surprised to see the mounts return in some other, pain-in-the-ass way to get.
Come on guys (and girls), cant stand this crying anymore! You still have -in my opinion at least- around 5-6 months till cata so move Your asses and go farming.Removing them from the game will only make them more rare and precious.All rare old mounts should be removed
omg stop whining over two mounts, two mounts that don't even look good! The raid has been around for 5 years, granted it was a great raid instance, it was great ONLY at level 60, level 70 and 80 its just boring and at 85 it would be even more boring. actually there is a real reason to be sad about this place no longer being a raid.the Tiger, is the ONLY tiger mount avaliable to horde players, and the raptor is the ONLY raptor avaliable to alliance players.true, they aren't the prettiest raptor or tiger in the game, but they ARE the only ones avaliable to each faction, as a horde player who's been farming the tiger for the past year I'm quite sad about this, and can only hope I can FINNALY get the frikking mount before cata launches.I'm a cat person :P I was quite sad that as a horde player I woudn't be able to ever ride a giant tiger like the rest of the alliance players do.
This is a sad day/mourn
Looks like it's time to do the instance before it goes away! =O
It says gone as a raid instance.Anyone thinking what I'm thinking?
It says gone as a raid instance.Anyone thinking what I'm thinking?It will be a 5-man? Possibly. especially with accounts on the official forums stating the instance portal is still there.
I'd love to get the tiger mount but unfortunately my main isn't a character that can solo the tiger boss.Sure I could do it on my dk, but I rarely play that !@#$%^&.
AQ40 is only partially soloable from a mechanics standpoint - there's no way to do Twin Emps alone.
Five years and still no tiger, sigh. After many many normal 20-man runs back in "the day," I've been duoing it with my significant other for years now to no avail.I'd love to get the tiger mount but unfortunately my main isn't a character that can solo the tiger boss.Sure I could do it on my dk, but I rarely play that !@#$%^&.I know exactly how you feel. I actually took my DK in there to solo it cause I noticed so many damn death knights have one, and it dropped for her on her second kill. I hate that death knight...
I was so naive to think that blizz finally stopped failing at development. I was wrong.
WOW! Way to go Blizzard! Just completely #$%^ OVER the game, No more ZG, Hunters with Energy, and all of the classics look like !@#$. Great Job.There zoning out all level 60 Raids because everyone will be able to farm the &*!@ out of them, Onyxia, Naxx, Molten Core, Nefarian and now ZG, they might leave AQ cuz its 40 man and most likely unsoloableThese two responses have no utter point. it's just a buunch of trolling. BWL and MC are staying. Onyxia was buffed because she was one of the more loved raid back then, and it made alot more sense beefing her up because Varian came back. Naxx was moved because back then it was wuite difficult for people to finish it. I'm not sure about AQ 20-40. All you trolls can complain because Blizzard has other plans with raids that nobody cared about, but you can't change a thing. Zul'gurub has a more better plan with it. the raid was easily solo'd for its mounts only. You didn't care back then till this post. Also Scant, Hunters had no need for mana, classics looks alot better. and you only joined last night. You got no room to talk.
I was so naive to think that blizz finally stopped failing at development. I was wrong.If by fail you mean creating an incredible, highly anticipated game that will breathe new life into the WoW franchise, then yes they have failed miserably.
