how is this done now without a 2nd person? (3rd character). i thought that they had removed the function where you make a group on lockout toon, and join with farming toon at mount boss.
and you may be right about that blackhand mount drop is a bug. i dont remember if it was you who even made that post, but there was a documented change that effected the music roll, making it not drop if you already knew it. like so many other things in the game, if they altered drop rate for music roll, might they have accidentally broke the drop rate for the mount at the same time?
true, but the rare vanilla mounts are different to basically any other mount since with the exception maybe of gladiator mounts. they are removed! and they were not reskins really, they were the first that were later copied. but i still remain in the camp that if no one is actually using them anymore, as in there is no active account with them on it, what is the point in having them as we will never see them. but i mean more so with mounts post vanilla, cause like i said vanilla rare mounts were a strange thing.
all the mounts since are left in the game on a fish hook. there is nothing “rare” about them once they are no longer current as you can still get them. the only thing “rare” about them is your luck with RNG. i dont see that as a true or worthy rarity.
if for some reason all 5M people’s luck was “good” one day on argus mount, the shackled urzul, and all 5M people got it, would that make it any less a special mount? not really. its still a unique and nice looking (if messed up!!!) mount. the “mount of the day” (current mythic) are usually spammed by people have it, and people who’ve bought it. groups of 5-10+ people all together in a city showing off the mount that it looks like they actually got it in a box of cornflakes and its common and not actually as special as it is at that moment in time.
having ‘rarity’ dictated by a few lines of code or dice rolls is not actual rarity and annoys people more i think. i would suggest that people for the most part dont complain about gladiator mounts or vanilla mounts because they are for a set time and thats it. people are more annoyed at the 1% mounts because the barrier between them and it is artificial. getting a glad rated mount is not the same as getting ashes on a 120 toon.
