Mount farming 101 – master post

So far my most popular post has been related to soloing raids – something I’ve mostly done for mounts.

However that post has a problem – it assumes that you’ve done the encounters at the level they were intended for and thus know the mechanics which can be ignored. And those which can’t.

I’ve been following the 6.2 changes with interest and last night poked it a bit to get a feel for how it is looking and what Tanaan jungle is going to be like.

Mount farming: prerequisites

[See Mount farming 101: master post]

There are some prerequisites for the mount farming; the only really required one is to be at a relatively high level and reasonably well geared.

I’d say that being at level cap in good gear – I did all of the instances on my level 100 elemental shaman who had ~640 item level – would be handy, however I did farm heroic Dragonsoul 10 on my paladin as she leveled from 90 with no real issues, although it became challenging as she approached level 100 due to the conversion of secondary stats from points to percentages!

There are also some Addons which can be useful
