Don't think I've ever been as excited for a recolor!
I need this. Please don't make it as impossible to get as the stormwing. It took me forever to get that one.
Since I got Squawks I need this, the stormdrakes are one of my favorite models, and I was hoping we could get a blue one not related to pvp, so this is cool!
I was sure I wasn't the only one that wanted a blue stormdrake since we first discovered them in Stormheim, specially with the Nithogg world boss, in Legion. And finally, it's here! :D
WoW needs its dragons back. For they are the most outstanding fantastic creatures :and RPGs are nothing without them :))
YES! I finally get to ride Nithogg :D :D (srsly i love love <3 dragons)
Just got this on my first Heroic Island Expedition :)
I got this mount in a nornal Jorundal (victory). In the island there was one elite and a few normal mobs just like the mount (thunderscale drakes), but no rare.
I got his mount today, I can confirm it drops on normal and that you don't have to kill any of the dragons
So you do not have to kill the rare to get the mount?
My wife got this one today on her birthday aswell, she did a normal IE.
Does it appear that this only drops from Jorundall or will it drop anywhere? I also heard it can come from the weekly quest?
Dropped for me today and not in Jorundall.
Droped on Heroic Island Expedition.
38 attempts on jorundal.
Dropped for me in about 10 hits of normal Jorundall.
Dropped for me today on Normal!
Finally got this beauty today from a normal run.
The bad news? I've done well over 100 island expedition runs...
I got this after 19 hours of farming. It dropped for me on Jorundall, Heroic and after killing the blue stormdrake dragons. So, to make this easy here are my findings:
- It drops on Jorundall
- It drops on any difficulty, however I decided to HC, since higher difficulties mean higher drop chance
- Blue stormheim dragons /have/ to be present, not sure if you need to kill them. I killed them just to make sure
An updated list of all of the mounts from the island expeditions:
for providing the data on the 8.3 boxes!
- Vendor mounts (Alliance:
I Started doing normal ie's on my Demon Hunter twink and when
came I bought a lot of them and sent them over to my main character and started running mythic ie's. I used three accounts while I was doing ie's. My other two accounts were afk on the ship while I was running around looting and gathering azerite on my main. (Since I had 3 accounts my total attempts are 14061) I wrote my attempts below as one account and
my attempts as 3 accounts in parentheses
Good luck and I hope you have better luck than I had.
Am I getting paranoid or is Jorundall always packed with Island Dragons on Wednesday/Thursday in EU (about 50% chance of them spawning) while there seem to be no dragons at all at least on Friday (like <10% chance of them spawning). This is what happened for me in the last 3 weeks Jorundall was in the rotation.
Anyone else who has the suspicion that something feels a little off? Note that this is coming from somebody who is about to go insane trying to get this mount (got the 25 of the Whelpling Pets, 2700+ dubloons farming only in Jordundall weeks) so it might be complete bull&*!@.
YESSS I got it finally after 2520 islands according to rarity but closer to 3000ish ( rarity doesn't count new islands for me). Got it from a normal Jorundall, 4/9 now!
After getting almost no Island Thunderscale dragons at all in Jorundall over the weekend, today on Monday in EU the Thunderscales finally came back. I did 6 Mythic Jorundalls today and 3 of them had Island Thunderscales present. On my 6th run the mount finally dropped for me!
So after having farmed this mount for the last months and doing countless Jorundall runs I want to share some information that I found.
The mount can only drop when Island Thunderscales are present
Island Thunderscales can only spawn on Jorundall
They are native to Jorundall and cannot spawn as part of an invasion and are not part of the weekly island population rotation
When Island Thunderscales are present on your island you are guaranteed to receive the
pet while you also have a small chance to receive the mount
The mount can drop on any difficulty (Normal, Heroic and Mythic)
You do not have to kill any of the dragons to have a chance of getting the mount
Speculation, needs confirmation:
Island Thunderscales will spawn at a different rate on different days of the week
About 50% chance of them spawning on Wednesday, Thursday and Monday (EU servers, may vary for US)
Below 10% chance of them spawning on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (EU servers, may vary for US)
Island Thunderscales can never spawn on any island besides Jorundall (99% sure)
Just returned to playing wow after almost a year of not playing. Got this mount on Jor/Dentarg/heroic/12:47am EST Wed./victory Killed dragons. Dropped on my 7th island expedition. I used to go by the philosophy that if you farm something in WoW it's like work. If you just play and let things come it's more fun and less like a chore. I didn't even know this mount could drop. Good luck to everyone.
In regards to Todesbote's post. I ran about 10 hours of island expeditions today all mythic level. Today is Wednesday in US. Of the 60~ or so islands I ran, I got Jorundall 15-20 times.
Of all those runs I only saw Island thunderscale mobs twice. The first time they appeared, my friend got the mount and it was her 4th jorundall run ever(she was a healer and I have my speculations about mount drops and healers lol). I can confirm that it is guaranteed you receive the pet if the mobs are present as everyone in my party got the pet both times the mobs spawned (on mythic difficulty).
All in all I doubt that for US there is 50% chance for them to spawn on Wednesday, and I didn't see them at all yesterday either. I'm hoping there is some sort of rate to their spawn because its pretty brutal with how it is set up right now.
I didn't think it was possible to make a worse RNG system than the paragon caches in legion but a tip o the hat to you blizzard because this is just ridiculous. I would be totally fine with farming 10k coins to purchase 1 mount but apparently working towards accomplishments is just completely out of the question in the face of RNGesus.
Salty mount collector
Update: it is not guaranteed to get the pet on normal difficulty if dragons are present. may indicate heavily towards drop rate of mount in relation to difficulty
I always wanted that dragon from Valarjar box but never got it dureing legion...i came back, figured i should lvl up my druid with expeditions. Saw that dragon mob(looks like) and trough ''hehe this one gonna drop me mount ''for sure'' ''...after island ended i just saw something epic droped, i was like NO WAY ITS NOT :D Happily it was, this beauty droped for me on normal :)
Have been farming for the
mount since Jorundall was up the week with Tuanka inhabitants. Did only normal modes puggin the whole week. The week ended without having gotten the mount.
Second week with Jorundal and Vrykul inhabitants, continued farming on normal and decided to make 2 more accounts since If the Island thunderscales are on the map I'd have more chances at looting the mount. Did normal modes while other 2 accounts afk on the ship. The week ended without the mount dropping.
Third week of Jorundal (1st May 2019) continued farming (Normal mode) and on a map with 1-3 island thunderscale mobs, the mount finally dropped for both of the accounts with characters afk on the ship, not on my main account.
Things to Note:
pet does is not guarantee to drop even though island thunderscale are present. can be looted even with no thunderscales present, dropped more with island thunderscale present, (3 accounts received the pet each on one run)
Some visits I've found them all over the island and another just one single Island thunderscale mob. As long there is one, the mount will be in the loot table.
Over 3 different weeks farming jorundall, chances the thunderscales were present were about 1 in 10 jorundall maps , sometimes even going a few days farming without seeing any. Also didn't encounter more or less during different times of the day.
Average clear times for normal solo expeditions about 10-12 minutes (averagely geared mage) mostly collected azerite,and targeted rare mobs.
Didn't have to unlock island expeditions for other accounts, just boosted to level 110, main invited and qued them, they will still get loot from IEs and also level up in the process. (just got heart of azeroth and did campaign to reach the main city)
Did try loosing on all difficulty modes , did not received any reward for all accounts. Aside from mounts did looted lots of quest items, pets, transmogrify items.
Good luck and hope this helps those seeking it.
I got it on my 1st Jordunall try.
Yeah, go ahead, hate me. I didn't even know a mount could drop of IE's lmao
I finally got my Island Thunderscale! I've been dutifully grinding every day for several hours the last week (and the three weeks previous when we had those back to back Jorundalls on the map rotation) I haven't seen any Thunderscales on the island today at all, (Sunday) (or any since Tuesday)
I decided to try leveling my low level alts via islands instead of spamming Mythic on my main. If nothing else it made it less frustrating when the mount didn't drop because at least I was still getting XP. Got it on my 115 lvl Warlock on Normal. I didn't see any drakes at all, but then we got stuck on the beach when the 2nd and 3rd waves came in. I also started eating any random food I saw along my travels. No idea if that helped at all but at this point, it doesn't hurt to try.
It makes me wonder if the 'difficulty' chance / drop rate is in any way related to your toon's level vs the level of the scenario. Maybe that's why so many people have mentioned getting it on Normal vs getting it on Mythic (when they are likely on a max level toon with high stats)
Good luck to those of you still hunting!
I was on Heroic Jorundall when this dropped, only saw regular and elite blue dragons...no rares. Only a small group at that, killed towards the end. Stating that, this is my one and only mount I have had drop, and I can't even begin to tell you how many islands I've ran .
With loot boxes out now, it is much easier to get your mounts. Though you still have to run islands for the 175 dubloons to get them. Stating that, you can take your chances at getting a mount while earning them, but usually going to get a mount out of the boxes at some point for sure. I have gotten at least 5 with 2700 dubs. Don't forget to check out the guides for the boxes on which drop the mounts you may want most, and good luck!
Got this on a Wednesday night, playing on Heroic Jorundall.
Yesterday I decided to do some island expeditions. I did 5 of them, all of them on Mythic, and at the end of the 5th one I dropped this. I still have to understand what rate does it have, but I can tell that during the last expedition I didn't even see the dragons. So to get this drop, these kind of dragons just need to spawn on your island, it doesn't matter if you tag/see them or not.
It finally happened for me.
I've been trying for this specific mount since 8.1. Every time Jorundall islands were active I tried my best to chain run until I just couldn't do any more. I knew this mount existed, I saw other people on it, but it just felt impossible to try to aim for. The layers of RNG involved between not only needing the right island, but also having the rarespawn thunderdrakes up...what were the chances?
Today, on my first mythic island of the day, it dropped. I never have to do islands again. I can't express what a relief this is.
But it's also depressing that in all those hundreds and hundreds of islands I ran, I never saw any other mount. This is my first (and likely only) island mount. I'm okay with that now because I got what I wanted most, but I really wish they'd revamp this system. Put them on the vendor for dubloons, make them more realistic to aim for.
Anyways, just had to share my happiness and try to encourage other people who were withering away like I was. It can happen!
(also if it helps at all - this dropped Tuesday on NA, with Jorundall+Vargul - I know there have been some theories about certain times of the week)
Just dropped for me by just doing my 4 expedition quest. One of the most epic mounts to date.
I just came back to WoW and this mount dropped on my 6th ever Island Expedition. I was running Heroic. Am I lucky or what?
I have been grinding this mount since 8.1 and religiously farmed Island Expeditions whenever Jorundall was up, I did well over a thousand islands and had no drop, but saw copious amounts of
in my time grinding.
I decided to start grinding Islands again this week as Jorundall was back up, I got four hours in before the mount FINALLY dropped. There was a lot of screaming, as you can imagine!
The one thing I noticed on my grind (it could be a coincidence) that whatever mobs I killed first, I tended to get a drop from. For example, I killed Worgens first and got Duskhaven gear at the end. This happened several times, so I decided to go to the spawn spots for the Thunderscales and to see if they were there. 1 in every 3-4 Islands they were present. When they were there, I killed them first - the mount dropped on this attempt. As I said, it could be a coincidence, but always worth an attempt if - like me, you have spent endless hours grinding for this mount.
Good luck everyone, hope you get a drop soon.
Just got this today, 10/18 on H Jorundall (not here to gloat, just sharing what I know).
There were no drakes present at all and the only adds were Vrykul which we never actually saw and some Island Trolls, we only ran into one pack of them. The rest were Taunka, some Azerite critters, some crocs, and some wind serpents, but no dragons. The only other thing we attacked were the Horde who attacked us first, but we didn't get to finish them off before we had our 9k Azerite. Maybe it was a drop from a chest which we looted a lot of?
If you are thinking "omg" after reading the other comments then dont worry as there is another way to get these island mounts ,which is way much better than this rng . So i have made some posts which i will be copy pasting here ,now the way to get these mounts is still rng but way much less than drop from island .There is a vendor near the Island Expedition Map Table - Captain Kitt for the Horde and Captain Nightrunner for the Alliance which sells some boxes ,those are only available 3 per week regardless of what island is underway and those boxes are 175 seafarers dubloons each . So i m just copy pasting the mount info from my main post .
========= drops ==========
== drops ==========
====== drops ==========
Now these are the drops from 175
Epic boxes , the other boxes for 120
has a chance to drop
Now there are like 3 to 4 items in each box which can include mount/pet/mog/azerite quest .
So Good Luck as the drop rate is around 20% give or take and doing mythic at this point is not that hard as it was before and u get quite a lot of duns from mythics .
Hope this helps :)
After storming Mythic expeditions last week, in order to kill Thunderscales in Jorundall, but to no avail, I ended up purchasing two
. I somehow got two
from the first chest, and
and a green BoE armor piece from the second one. So I suggest you stack up on coins and buy
as it is worth it.
This is the only one I have left of the expedition-mounts now. Opened 2 jorundal salvages so far and gone on 216 expeditions.
the only mount i really ever wanted from islands and of course it's the only one i still don't have... got everything else during bfa, including duplicates... i wish they would at least increase the doubloon drops at this point or just make it more consistent. i've had runs where i get insanely lucky and get 40+ dubs and then essentially have the same run but i get 8..
Ok so I promised myself when I won this beauty, I will come back and share my data with the community, in case somone needs some recent feedback. So the Thunderscale for me 5 mins ago, on 15/10/2022 and below are the notes I kept for you guys / gals:
? countless Mythic runs whenever the Journdall Salvage was up for purchase (I never bothered to run much when the island itself was up on a chance it would drop off a dragon. Maybe I should have)
Dubloons per MYTHIC run (averages from memory)
Lower end: one bag 7-10 dubloons
Average: 2 bags, 12-16 dubloons
Top end: 3 bags 22-36+ dubloons
Most dubloons in one satchel: 25
Stuff I won during the grind
Won Plenty transmog (from salvages)
Won MANY companions (usually as a reward from an expedition)
Won 2 Mounts from salvages:
*Craghorn Chasm-Leaper (Yeti)
*Bloodgorged Hunter (Bat)
Won 1 Mount from an expedition win
*Qinsho’s Eternal Hound*
FINALLY Won the Thunderscale on the
9th Jorundall Salvage purchase
So not the luckiest guy, took me a good grind to get the best looking mount in the game currently.
Im a dad of 2 so my grinding was not the fastest, took me 10-15 mins to clear a mythic run on a BM hunter with 240 shadowlands gear
I read somewhere that even if you lost an expedition, you still get dubloons, however the one expedition I lost (it was tonight), I got ZERO dubloons, so still getting rewards after a loss is not a given.
Finally, good luck to the one person this post helped / encouraged. I promise you the mount is worth it, and even better than that, the feeling you will never have to run another stinkin expedition again. Good luck, keep grinding and congrats in advance!
