I've been wondering something for a long time now. What has happened to the 100 mount acheivement? Will they increase the amount to like 150 or something? Otherwise everyone is going to be riding dragonhawks lol
What they may do is add-on to the achievement and add another reward for getting, say 200 mounts. That's what I would assume anyways.
I wonder when exactly are they changing the drop rate on the mounts, when MoP comes out on the 25th or when the pre patch goes live. Anyone remember how it was for Wrath?
Really not surprised to see this happening.
Not surprised. People are already trying to sell Heroic DS runs. =)
worst idea ever! some of us havent been as lucky or had it stolen from ML ninja leader's... why should we miss out for your mistake blizz?
Regular/heroic dungeon mounts will have the same drop rate they do now.
On the droprates: In the article, did it say that even with lower droprates the firehawk and handmaiden will be even easier to get overall than the wrath ones, because their droprates won't go as low as them, or that they are easier to get NOW, than the wrath ones was in their time?A bit confused, sorry for my ignorance. Just hoping there will be a slightly bigger chance in MoP for these mounts. I'd sell my soul for the firehawk, unfortunately I haven't been able to get into a FL heroic run. I doubt that's going to change.
There's a precedent for it in Wrath, but unsure if it will be 1% or something slightly less harsh. Seeing how Blizz was so adamant about meta-drakes being removed in t7 and then keeping the remaining ones in...who knows if something different could happen.The BMAH has also put Smoldering Egg of Millagazor up since it drops from normal mode...unsure if that will stay.
I must say, my guild has been raiding BoT, TotFW and BWL since a few weeks into the expansion, we have yet to see a Drake of the Southern Wind, we've been raiding FL since the day of its release and HC as of just over a month later... we have seen ONE i repeat "ONE" pureblood firehawk from Rag... and DS... we've been raiding from the release day and we've seen two handmaidens and a single "experiment" mount from Ultraxion... and you're now rducing the drop rate on all cata raid mount drops? i'd say increase the bloody rate until cata.... else increase the drop rate per raid lockout where a mount hasn't been dropped.
