We went in a large group to Mekka Hc large night and two mounts dropped. Was fabulous. Sadly I didn’t get one but one day!!!
The first Sharkbait’s Favorite Crackers I got I gave to a RL friend and then yesterday I did another run to Freehold and got it again.
Today I killed a random mob near Waycrest Manorand and got another mount which of course I gave to same friend.
I got the Raven Lord on my first heroic run
I got the Green Proto Drake from my first Oracle’s egg
That’s where my luck ended.
Invincible took me over a year on multiple chars
I am STILL doing Firelands for the mount from Ragnoros every week on 6 characters.
I am STILL doing Karazhan for the horse every week on 6 chars
I am STILL doing Tempest Keep every week on 6 chars for Ashes of A’lar
Sooner or later I should just give up and every week I say “this is the last time i’m trying”… but …
The worst one is Firelands, you kill Ragnaros and then Malfurion says “The World owes you a great debt” and I always reply out loud “No, you own me THE DAMNED MOUNT!”
Got the tigers and the bear from Darkshore on the same day on different chars.
Funny thing is that one of my friends asked me to show him the location so we went there together and then the two tigers dropped for him too.
I think I had my luckiest WoW day to date last week - I got Skullripper, one of the Army of the Light paragon cache mounts and the drop from Houndmaster Kerrax in one day. I think luck comes for all of us somewhere, and balances out with bad luck! For example, I still have to farm Highmountain, Valarjar and Court of Farondis for their mounts… and Venomtail Skyfin. Can’t put Legion behind me just yet! Haven’t even tried to start farming Invincible, Ashes, Mim’s head, Rivendare’s mount, Experiment 12-B, Blazing Drake etc… the list is endless!
I’m fairly lucky when it comes to mounts, Shammoz can attest to that
Gear on the other-hand…
I either have notoriously bad luck, or incredibly good luck. I usually get something on either less than 5 tries, or more than 90.
Nowhere inbetween. It’s actually both amusing and frustrating at the same time.
I make a sort of minigame out of it: “lets see how many attempts we can chalk up for THIS little feller”
The only time I remember getting lucky with a mount drop was The Headless Horseman mount. Was a couple years back, last day of the event so last chance I could run the dungeon, had been running it daily for the entire event with nothing to show for it, figured one last go before the event was over and there it was.
Dungeon drops, nah!
Raid drops? The Mammoth from Vault of Archavon is the only one I’ve got or even seen drop while I was in the group
Fairly lucky? Understatement of the year there
Luckiest I’ve been was getting Flametalon on my first run through firelands. Had 0 mount drops for ages now though
I can, if were not against the ToS I would ask you run Firelands on my characters!
For me Good luck - Infinite Timeweaver on my very first set of TW dungeons (2nd or 3rd dungeon- Legion newbie). I didn’t even know what it was and it caused much frustration in the social guild I was in at the time
Bad luck - Blazing Drake in Dragon Soul - Approaching 400 ties for a 1 in 100 mount, I hate the place.
i don’t usually farm for mounts, but back in the Wrath days, i got my White Polar Bear on third try and it did not take too long to get Green Proto Drake either
That’s what we all say at first… All the runs I do for mounts every week… it’s disgusting!
I also like it when the mount is a surprise.
I mean you don’t know that this mount drops from the particular boss/raid/dung but still you get it.
Its good when you have a string of luck. It is much worse than that when you have years of bad luck.
I have gladiator mounts from various seasons across multiple characters and I got both Mimiron’s Head and Invincible not too long after they were released because I was in a top raiding guild (boy did that 100% drop chance feel good).
Does obtaining cool mounts through skill count as being lucky?
Indeed this RNG loot works very well in MMOs. We need a lot more of that. It’s not even remotely frustrating having farmed firelands for fandral’s pouch for years…
I got the love rocket first time back in 2015
Astral Cloud Serpent first time I started farming for it.
Those are the two that come to mind
Best day when i got Invincible and Flametalon of Alysrazor mounts on same day
and ofc when zul’gurub was new instance we started all roll for Swift Zulian Tiger and i lost but Raid leader did raid roll and i won it
