Fuark?

A few nights ago I boosted a couple friends in Karazhan… with my warrior, sadly. Why is this sad?

That’s why. Anyways, Thank God for MoP as mounts will be shared for all characters. After all, we can cross one more out of the list!

  • Deathcharger’s Reins
  • Time-Lost Proto-Drake
  • Phosphorescent Stone Drake
  • Swift White Hawkstrider
  • Reins of the Raven Lord
  • Fiery Warhorse
  • Uldum Camel (CBA figuring out the name)
  • Brewfest mounts
  • White Polar Bear
  • Reins of the Blue Drake
  • Reins of the Azure Drake
  • Reins of the Onyxian Drake
  • Ashes of Al’ar

Yep, this is just my own list of the most wanted mounts… I’m not including a lot of mounts which are considered rare by many. Why? Because either people ninja them, or overgear zerg everything so they can get them easily. The mounts above are just fuuuarking rare or they involve solo skill or camping. A few other mounts what did not made the list: OS3D mounts (Killed as progress), ICC25 Drake (Killed as progress), VoA Mammoth (solo EZ mode), Amani Warbear, Blazing Drake, Handmaiden, U25 mount, Green Proto, Red proto, Red Tank, etc. Oh and the almighty Brown Wolf itself! Yeah, I managed to put my hands on that beauty.

Old ZG Tiger? FFFFFFFFUUUUUU. I consider that I have it… I farmed it for a year and seen it drop, only to be passed to my friend who stopped playing since. Life sucks. More on the damned tiger here.

For the two blue drakes, I feel that they will never drop, although soloing Malygos is becoming more and more easier. Al’ar… hopelessly farmed since release (more or less). Onyxia is something I can place hope into, though…

Patch 4.1 on PTR – Zul’Aman and Zul’Gurub is back!

As MMO-champion announced, these two instances will be back in 4.1 as 5-man HC dungeons, dropping 353 loot aswell as rare mounts.

Yes, we’re proud to annouce that new rare-drop Raptor, Tiger and Warbear mount will be available, while the old mounts still have their unique beauty in hand.

Awesome. There will be other interesting stuff, check the link at the top. Ragnaros and Firelands… Mmm.

Also this one seems to be pretty nice. Many people are wondering if these new 5-man HC’s are the beginning of the so-called “Free epix” thingy again. Personally, I don’t think so.

Incoming awesomeness! I like these places very much, so I’m awaiting more patch notes. Be sure to check MMOchamp regularly :)

Purple kodos and lost tigers

I started a Tauren Priest recently (Purple kodos for the win), to check out the new quests and zones. Also the only class I do not have is the priest so this was a perfect opportunity to level one.

All I can say, the quests are very good, I enjoyed the Stonetalon Mountains chain, where we can see Garrosh from his more positive side :). Also, the XP is insanely good, and the zones are beautiful. Though many zones received very little modifications, I expected much more changes than I got. Anyways, this is good in some ways, because most of the old zones remained in their old state.

I leveled to 35 in 11 hours, which is kinda fast I think. But from now on, I will instance grind on holy a bit since I hate leveling from 35-45 and the instance quests are very-very good, and personally, I love the instances within this level bracket.
About the instance quests: Nearly every instance has a bunch of quests, which are located inside the instance, so you do not need to travel for them… this helps a LOT if you ask me. Many instances have quests worth a level or more.

So, I like the patch, and I can do something else besides preparing for the expansion with my main.

Oh, and on the night before the patch, I made my last Zul’Gurub run :'(
Rest in Peace Zulian Tiger, hopelessly farmed for nearly 2 years.

Thekal’s mount and Cataclysm

So, I had luck yesterday, but I think I will never have luck with this one.

Yes, I am talking about the damned Zulian Tiger mount. I’m farming it since 14 months or more. It dropped once, but that time I had a friend with me, oh well. He’s the one who made me play, so he deserves it. Also he was the one who got his Baron mount on his first run after I got mine after a looooad of tries. I got it while the droprate was 1 in 5000. Next week they buffed it to 1% then he sent me an SMS about the drop. Oh, time to name this friend, his name is Azerothh/Yayoo/Yoyo/whatever. He just sold his account after five years of playing. I hope I can get him back to cataclysm anyways.

So here’s how I do the mount farming. (I know that a lot of people know the method, oh well.)

NOTE: The zone will be reworked in Cataclysm, so you won’t be able to get your mount. That’s why I’m so stressed :/
