Just do what I did. Grab a couple competent players you know, preferably guildies, and offer them each 1,000g to run the dungeon with you and not roll on the mount. I seriously don't understand why anyone would try to get the mount In a random group. A group that is probably filled with fresh 85's in crafted PvP gear and quest greens. On another note, the way she kept saying Zed-A confused the crap out of me for the first 30 seconds of the video. I'm not going to say that it's wrong, but it's been years since I heard someone say Z like that.

I very much agree on the crazy optimism that comes with trying to get a bear in a PuG. And she's certainly doomed to disappointment if she's trying to get the bear shown in the video, since that's the BC-era mount.I also find the pronunciation of "z" in American English an oddity; how the heck did that end up weird? I get the whole colour/color thing; Noah Webster intentionally made an effort to make an 'American' spelling because English English was clearly stupid and wrong. But the letter's name? That I don't get. Although I imagine Wikipedia has at least one explanation.

That's the "proper" way to pronounce "Z" - ie. the Canadian and British way. ;) (Just kidding, in case my ;) didn't come through strong enough)Anyone who watched SG: Atlantis will know it's why Rodney called it a "Zed-Pee-Emm" and not a "Zee-Pee-Emm" - Rodney was Canadian to the core. :)

@boobahI blame the alphabet song. Do the last part with "zed" instead of "zee" and you'll know why. @revynn Thank you for pointing out the zed thing in the first place. I was wondering why she kept singing about Seradane.

@CaylynnFunny, SG:atlantis is exactly the reason I know the Z/zed pronunciation difference lol
