Finally, a guide to getting mounts! I was wondering why nobody made one long ago. You're so cool, Perculia \\o/
I recomend an Iphone app called wow mounts.
In the ground removed section it's missing the Brewfest Ram, the 60% speed increase version
Very nice guide as usual.
I think you're missing the Tol'Barad mounts D:
En el Reino de las Sombras! *does the flamenco*...anyway. Thanks for the guide. Makes me wish they'd add more reputation mounts, like what we saw in BC. Since then we've only seen 1-2 mounts from any given faction, if at all! =( (Other than the Argent Tournament, which was literally an explosion of both mounts and pets)
Derp, this is what I get for writing the info for Tol Barad Commendations this week and knowing I covered the mounts *somewhere.* Added those three in, PvP ground, Misc Flying, Brewfest for Removed Ground.I wish there were more reputation mounts too. I find it a lot more fun than constantly hoping for an RNG drop--I feel like I get to know a faction and their lore really well. Even if it's more common, it's meaningful (and ups my mount total even more!)
I said they're not guaranteed anymore in my descriptions :(e.g.Mimiron's Head used to be a guaranteed drop from 0-light Yogg-Saron, requiring you to defeat the encounter without the assistance and buffs of the Keepers. It was changed to a low drop in Cataclysm.Invincible's Reins, once a guaranteed drop from The Lich King on 25-player heroic difficulty, was changed to be a rare drop in Cataclysm. Edit: Looking at the links to the two mounts, they're also reflected as fairly low (12% for Mim). Did you mean some other mount that was showing up inaccurately?
Great guide, also with regards to the tier drakes being removed and some staying, here's a bi of explanation on it. For the Naxx drakes, at the time the only drakes that were 310% other than the black and plagued proto drakes were the gladiator mounts (Which were removed each season obviously.) and the Ashes of Al'ar which was a very rare drop from tempest keep. With the introduction of gear from Ulduar they felt that the 310% speed mounts would become much less rare due to people going back and doing the old Naxx achieves. There wasn't much time between Ulduar and ToC and Blizzard stated that due to the little time frame to obtain the meta drakes and the fact that most of the achievements in Ulduar were still extremely difficult with T9 gear, they were remaining in the game. Add in ICC and their stance was still that the achievements were difficult to obtain and so they were left there. However, with the release of Cataclysm "Master Riding" and mount scaling came into play. You could make anything from a green wind rider to a proto drake a 310% mount simply by spending 4-5k (Depending on reputation) in order to obtain the 310% speed mounts. The arguement became if you wanted a drake to show prestige there were current tiers of content for that. The 310% mount arguement was no longer a valid one as they were no longer rare. Blizzard even said that they were unsure (I believe this was either in an ask the devs, or a reply on the WoW forums.) on whether to bring the Naxx drakes back in the game as they realized it was a bad idea to remove meta drakes. It showed inconsistency, but they said that it would also show inconsistency if they brought back the drakes after saying they would be removed from the game. Currently I often see threads on the WoW forums asking to bring the Naxx drakes back alot (And I agree with them.) but I don't know whether Blizzard plans on actually bringing them back in the game.
uh sorry, i somehow skipped "used to be" part :-) it seems to be 1 - 2% drop chance on both (Mimiron's Head , Invincible's Reins). (wowhead does not correctly show the percentage due to previous 100% chance.)edit: it would be good to mention Satchel of Exotic Mysteries :)edit2: Brewfest mounts (Swift Brewfest Ram and Great Brewfest Kodo) no longer drop off Coren Direbrew but instead you have a little chance of looting them from Keg-Shaped Treasure Chest which is once per day drop after defeating Coren Direbrew
RE: the tooltip error, the devs have known about it for about a week. We fixed one of the reasons it's happening this week, then uncovered another I believe on Thursday? Friday? So it will be fixed soon.
The part regarding the Blue Proto-Drake... no stealth is needed to bypass either of the first two bosses.The first boss, just keep walking through the dungeon during her monologue, she won't aggro you.The second boss only gets activated by the orb, the gate past him to Skadi isn't even closed.And regarding the material costs for Mechano-Hogs and Sandstone Drakes: The only discount that applies is Bartering (10%), from a Level 24+ Guild, if you wish to be slightly more specific in it, since the Goblin racial was hotfixed a few weeks back to function as it is worded.The prices listed for the Sons of Hodir mounts should be specified as the Neutral price. At Exalted they are 800 and 8000 gold, respectively. Same for the Red Drake from Wyrmrest, 2000g is the Neutral price (1600 being the Exalted price).Mei Francis' listed mounts under "Misc" should be noted that she is associated with the Kirin Tor, which does impact the prices of her mounts (those that cost gold anyways), lowering price by 20% with Exalted.
I would recomend an iPhone app called wow mounts, I use it for my collecting, it basicly just brings up a list of all the mounts you have and dont have and where you get them.Also I got so lucky with the satchel of exotic mysteries, I was farming that just for the blue drake, it was the only mount I hoped to get from it, and it was the first (mount) that I got from the bag, happy day!I wish they added a 125 mounts achiev for firelands...EDIT: Also as the poster above me mentioned you should fix the sons of Hodier prices, I dont think you can even buy the grand ice mammoth till exaulted anyway.
At the beginning of the post, I say something to the effect about Neutral prices: (Note: currency prices listed are the full non-discounted cost. Players Exalted with factions or benefitting from Bartering may save gold on some mounts.) The Wowhead database prices are the full ones, so I'm using them for consistency.
These mounts look really awesome!
Great thanks, i was looking for a guide to get my 100 mounts :P
I'm SO glad I got the regular brewfest ram AND the swift one on the first brewfest.
This is so awesome! I will be bookmarking this. :)
Excellent guide.I think you missed the Sea Turtle from the aquatic mounts section.Edit...My bad, was in professions for ground mounts
