Nov 1st 2010 8:42AM Fellow mount-collectors: suck it up. If you've ever farmed a boss for a mount (Baron Rivendare, I'm looking at you!), you know that no matter how many times you run a place, you're not guaranteed to get it. Random drops are random. It's that simple. Is it fair that some people get the drop on their first try while others are on try 400 and counting? It sure doesn't feel that way, but that's just how it is.
Even though I didn't get the mount this time around either, I feel satisfied. The season just had a nice feel to it. Perhaps it has something to do with Undercity being my favorite Horde burg?

Oct 26th 2010 8:30AM My Warlock almost saw retirement when my Warrior Tank alt reached 80. Tanking was so much fun, and hunting down and eventually getting Rimefang's Claw and Splintered Door of the Citadel (as well as the Royal Crest of Lordaeron) was extremely satisfying.
Stepping into ICC and getting Bonecrusher's Scepter and Neverending Winter, as well as some T10 gear, I was _this_ close to dropping my Warlock. However, my love for the little fellow (Gnome) got the better of me, and I now have a main as well as a main alt. Yes, I'm a two-timer!
Oct 11th 2010 7:34PM So I take it Europe will be getting some love this Wednesday? If not, booo!

While I see your point, not everyone _should_ be on equal footing. Run with me here: if you are dedicated to get the mount, you farm it for as long as it takes. If that takes hour on end, mountains of gold or whatever the price, those dedicated enough will eventually get their hands on the mount. It's not like they haven't worked for it.
As for those who would like to get the mount, but don't have the time/gold, that's too bad. You can still get lucky, but you're not guaranteed it. That's life.
As it stands now, yes, everyone is on equal footing. However, the current system strips those with time and will from getting their mitts on something you can only get for a short period of time each year.
Absolutely. They could even make the Reins unusable by non-80s as to keep them away from lowbie alts who shouldn't be able to get it for all I care. I want it on my main, not my banker!
Oct 5th 2010 8:27AM This. I did Coren every single day throughout Brewfest, across 5 80s. I got the Ram on one of them. Two whole weeks of doing the boss five times a day and I get _one_ mount _once_ on _one_ character. At least increase the drop-rate, please!
Oct 5th 2010 7:13AM As a fellow Blood DPS, all I can say is: try Unholy! It's actually not that hard. You just go a bit longer without applying diseases, and change Death- and Hearth Strike for Blood- and Scourge Strike. Dump Runic Power with Death Coil. Not all that unfamiliar, really. Just remember to whip out your ghoul.

Sep 23rd 2010 3:27PM The LFG-toll will still be there. It's just that the heroic versions of the dungeosn may be so demanding that you don't want to run with (perhaps inexperienced) strangers. Personally I say "fudge it" to that. I'll deal with whatever the LFD-tool throws at me. If I end up in an insane-asylum after two days, so be it.
