I'm jealous. I *was* farming the green proto drake from the egg...for 2 years, every week (when it was a 7 day cooldown) I faithfully came back, bought another egg, almost to the minute of the other one "hatching." I gave up. I'm hoping that one day my tanking satchel will have one, but I've learned not to hold my breath.

Never give up hope. I had gotten to the point where I only sporadically picked up a mysterious egg, and the last one I got I forgot it was even in my bags for days after it hatched. Then, the morning of my birthday, I found the cracked egg in my bag, opened it, and discovered a Green Proto-Drake mount waiting for me.If you need some extra reason to keep getting the egg, the pets inside can sell for a decent amount these days. The proto-drake hatchling goes for something like 500 gold on my realm.

I too spent well over a year (when the egg had a 7 day hatch time) buying those darn eggs from the Oracles, hoping for the green proto drake and being disappointed time and time again. My husband got his on his warrior main in a couple months, and then had the nerve to get one on his priest alt as well, while I tried in vain. I was so elated when I finally got the drake, but at the same time I felt lost! What to do now?Grinding the Molten Front to get my Flameward Hyppogryph was just a tedious bore.Then camping Deepholm for Aeonaxx almost made me start biting my fingernails again. But I think that one was the most rewarding... showing off the Phosphorescent Stone Drake to my very obviously jealous guildies was the best!Gratz on the Fiery Warhorse! Hmmm, maybe I will have to start soloing Kara....

You should start farming it again. The droprate on it was DRASTICALLY increased.

I called that the egg of disappointment, well actually I heard a guildie call it that and I liked it therefore it became a running joke. I had the green proto on my, now "JC spec, working out of her shop in Org" Paladin, after just 3 eggs.. I wanted it for my priest, my main, the one I've been achievement-whoring since she's capable of doing far more things than any toon that came before her. I forget how long I kept going out to buy an egg, even with the 3 day timer, and selling tickbird after tickbird, cobras and proto-pets.. I finally got the drake last week. And its soo weird to not go visit the Oracles for an egg of disappointment.

I hated every stupid satchel... it only gave me gems or potions... and my friend would get all mounts everytime... even repeated ones!

Yeah, it was around 18 months or so before the green proto-drake dropped. I'm still buying eggs though, because people still buy hatchlings and cobras, and on the off-chance that another mount drops, it's going in the bank for the day that soulbound mounts become tradeable. /grumbles about deleting an army of Sinsiter Squashlings on multiple toons

Same here, it was a verrrry looooong and frustrating wait, but it did finally hatch, so I was really grateful that I didn't give up .
