Raven Lord was such a nightmare. I'm a night elf priest, so naturally, I required the help of a druid friend to go for it. I've never wanted another mount as much as that one. It's such that, had I a Spectral Tiger, I'd still use the Raven Lord. I'd wanted the mount ever since it came out in Burning Crusade. Well, I didn't get to farm it regularly until Wrath. I had to pay for this druid's epic flying to get him to do it for me every day. The mount dropped within six days of running the instance, but I was being nice and had a good friend of mine come in and roll against me for it. Was his first time ever in Sethekk Halls. Matter of fact, he had just gone to buy the heroic key right before that run. He won the mount. And my druid friend, the one I paid to help me? He's pretty fickle and flaky. He'll be interested in playing WoW for a month, then not log in for the next two. It was like pulling teeth trying to get him on and running the instance with me. Went through that for a few months before finally talking him into just lending us his account info so my other friend (the one I let roll against me) and I could run it ourselves. Took a little over half a year before I finally saw it drop again. I was so, so very happy, I swear. I never hated any drop more than I hated that stupid Belt of the Raven Lord.I was also running Zul'Gurub on my troll turned draenei shaman right before 4.0. I had been running it on her for weeks, to be honest, to try and get her that raptor mount (seemed fitting, given that she used to be a troll). I had no idea if ZG was going to be gone or not come 4.0, and I had one more run in me before that patch dropped. 90 minutes before the servers went down, the mount finally dropped. I was ecstatic.
