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.

Mount farming: Saberstalkers

The Saberstalkers are one of the factions you’ll have encountered in Tanaan Jungle. Like the other factions in Tanaan they offer a couple of mounts, but unlike the other factions you’ll not be able to just do daily quests to gain the reputation or items to purchase the mounts with.

Mount farming: Stratholm

[Master post]

Stratholm has one of the first mounts to be farmed in game – the Deathcharger’s Reins which dropped from Baron Rivendare.

Even after the dungeon was re-worked in Cataclysm the reins continued to drop; as you’d expect for a dungeon aimed at level 48-51, this is a fairly easy place to solo.

It has a ~1% drop rate.

[Master post]

There is only one mount in Mogu’shan Vaults, but it is a very pretty one. Who could say no to a sparkle dragon?

Unfortunately it does mean dealing with Mogu’shan Vaults, a raid from Mists of Pandaria.

Salvage no more

Whilst there are differences between the garrisons my level 100s have, there is one constant – all of them had a Salvage Yard.

Or at least, they did until yesterday!

Behind the curtain

Since 6.2 hit I’ve not been running many old raids for mounts – there is just too much to do! The work in Tanaan is coming to an end however; soon I’ll be back with the mount farming posts.

One of the new things added in 6.2 were Mythic dungeons. I’ve been having lots of fun running those with a group of friends – it has been refreshing to run instances at level which have a challenge. Where crowd control is required.

… to the point where the frogs are being frozen. We may be getting a bit CC happy!

Good & clear communication is also required.


But that fun is not the reason for this post. No, its what happened after we’d finished mythic Everbloom. Its likely the following works all the other difficulties of Everbloom.

Mount farming: Temple of Ahn’Qiraj

[Master post]

The Temple of Ahn’Qiraj, or AQ40 as it is better known, can drop four mounts – all of them dropping from trash.

PTR: Playing in Tanaan Jungle

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.

No real spoilers here – just my initial thoughts
