What I'd love to see is mounts that are a challenge to acquire. Note: a challenge is not making the drop rare so you have to get lucky -- a challenge is rewarding them only for completing a difficult task. Something like the latest pet challenges. If you can get to where they are, despite being in a difficult zone, and very hard to access location with no flying, and if you can manage to survive the taming, they're yours. No RNG nonsense, just a pure, hard to achieve task with a great reward, guaranteed... if you live long enough to complete it.If the task is hard enough, you can end up making as many attempts as you would have made if it was just a rare drop -- but when you fail, you fail for a reason, not just because of luck, and when you finally succeed, you've actually *earned* it, rather than just got lucky.

I like this idea. I think the closest to it in-game is the Time-Lost Proto-Drake, in that finding it is the hardest part. It's still luck-based, though spawn instead of drop, but at least you can feel like you're hunting it down instead of just rolling the dice.
