We took 7 shots at him and didn't see a mount. Still anecdotal, but it sucked. Especially getting two Eggs with the only healer being a druid (505 is aproximately TWICE the Resto Druid softcap if they're specced into that 3% Haste Balance talent, and it's not like we wouldn't have any on our gear already.)

7 shots on the first day? Common courtesy is to only kill him 5 times per day, per character, so that everybody in your party gets the full 5 chances. If you go back with another group to get a few extra attempts, you're stealing from all of them by giving them each one fewer attempt than they are entitled to - just for the sake of selfishly increasing your own number of attempts.

@LilBanshee: I killed him over 20 times yesterday. With the same group. We all switched to our alts so that we could get in more tries. Just because someone killed him more than 5 times doesn't mean they're stealing tries from other people. :)

@LilBanshee Some people like to switch out to an alt so their friends can get an extra chance at the mounts, so it's probably best not to assume that they randomly invited 2 more different people and had them sacrafice their summons.

True, that. 7 just seemed like a strange number; if he'd said 10 or 15 I wouldn't have commented.

Firestride replied but it didn't get posted right - they pulled in two alts to get 1 run apiece, rather than take those alts with a separate group to get 5 runs apiece.

That was annoying, and thank you LilBanshee:Firestride Sep 21st 2009 11:11AMWow, quite the little controversy. Yes, there were 2 people with 1 alt each. So, really, if not every one has a 75+ alt, 7 is no more a weird number than 10.

He had extra runs because I didn't use mine. (???)
