Jan 8th 2011 12:14PM Exteremely variable. First run on my DK I got the White Hawkstrider in the BC expansion. Two man run, won the drop - very lucky. Conversely I've been trying for the bird mount from Anzu with my Druid for 183 tries - not even a sniff and they were all solo runs. What's particularly frustrating about this one is that it used to be only druids who got the Anzu key who could do this....now anyone and their brother can go for this mount. I worked hard to do all the quests just to qualify for this mount attempt....now all that work goes unrewarded after so many tries.
Blizz needs to consider some type of mechanism to increase the changes of the drop based on 1) solo vs. multi-person runs (if you make solo runs your % chance should increase - multi-person runs, not so much) and 2) number of runs attempted.
Achievements are important to some folks as are goals (i.e. I want the "xxxx" mount). There should be some way to reward players who make consistent attempts over a long period of time to get an achievement or drop. Othewise there is no effort/reward system and the player loses interest in attempting and in my opinion, ultimately the game.
Jan 5th 2011 11:24AM Named my Druid healer Sangoma - A sangoma is a practitioner of herbal medicine, divination and counselling in traditional Nguni (Zulu, Xhosa, Ndebele and Swazi) societies of Southern Africa (effectively an African shaman). Couldn't find a good Danish word for a healer so I used this one...he's kind of funky like a good Sangoma in Zululand so it fits :)
Oct 4th 2009 10:01PM All good stuff, but where's the expanded stable slots????? I'm BM with 5 rare pets....have to give one up to spec survival. That just sucks. Expand our pet slots please!
Sep 2nd 2009 10:03PM Where in the heck are added pet slots???????????? As a BM Hunter with 5 rares I'm not about to give one up for a dual spec. And......I'd like to tame some more rares for my BM Hunter as well! Taming Skoll would be great but I'm not about to give up Gondria, King Krush or the other 3 rares it took me so long to tame! What the heck is up with 5 measly pet slots in our stable of pets. Why not 50????
Jul 23rd 2009 3:45PM How about adding additional pet stable slots? I am a BM Hunter with 5 rare pets. If I spec any other spec I have to give up one of my rare pets. You work pretty hard to tame rares so giving them up is not something that's easy to do. I am virtually limited to a single BM spec as long as I keep my 5 rare pets....give me more pet slots!
