Have you been farming that elusive mount for months on end and finally found it? Did you stumble across the Time Lost Proto Drake the 1st time you flew through Storm Peaks? Finally finish your last holiday achievement and now booming through the flies at 310% speed?

Here is the place to share all those your stories of trials and tribulations, frustrations and success!



For me, 3 days ago I finally got my engineering to 450! And with it I treated myself to gathering enough matts to make myself a Turbo Charged Flying Machine, the last crafted mount left for me to obtain :)

Despite being obtained over a week ago, both of these cases could count since I haven't told anyone yet.

First: for much of Spring Break, I managed to farm enough Honor on Arclite to get a Black War Kodo.

Second: near the end of Spring Break, I managed to get Exalted with Undercity on my Shaman, thus netting him a Purple Skeletal Warhorse.

I consider myself lucky that on my first Heroic runs with my NE and Tauren through the Culling of Strath I managed to get the reigns for the Bronze Drake for both of them thanks to everyone in the PUGs I was in already having the drakes themselves.

I got myself a green protodrake last night, I can finally stop buying oracle eggs. I'm grinding honor out for pvp mount #3, which will net me a handy 75 mounts! I'm running out of easy ones...

cba to gather mats for the turbo for Yas

Been grinding away rep for netherdrakes on my Belf- not something to be really proud about I know, especially with the knockback changes this means while the races are still hard in netherwing ledge, they aren't deadly. Man I was seriously wanting to try an epic flight against Skyshatter, but I was able to just watch him stun himself, stun himself, punt me a bit, stun himself... but soon I should have drakes

I did finally also get enough honor for a red skelly horse AND shards for a black war mammoth tho!



currently trying to get enough honor for a pvp mount for Embront-Bloodhoof, but by the looks of things that's going to be harder than anything :| 30k to go...

I did the Ambassador achievement specifically for the mounts, I have to say that the Horde one was hardest, I don’t know if it was just because I was a Tauren, but getting the Silvermoon rep was agony! I can’t count how many quests I did for the 30 some, or less, rep, if I hadn’t been so determined to get it before I turned 60 I’d have waited to do the Elders event (got it at 58, I was so happy). My Alliance toon had the advantage of having done the Elders, so when they made it so any race could ride any mount he buzzed through and got his robot chicken >.<

I can't wait for Cata, I really hope my Ambassador title will give me credit towards Worgen/Goblin rep.

Just finished getting Arclite an Ochre Skeletal Warhorse. Swift Orange Raptor's next if I can muster the patience and find the quests needed to get the rep.

I really do like that Ochre Skeletal Warhorse. I need to find a name for mine.

The Ochre one is most definitely the best looking of the bunch now. I think Blizz should rework the other ones to get those neat little details on all of them...

Just got 150 seals from Tournament Dailies, and i just got myself the Argent Hippgryph. Took me longer than expected though, seeing as i got the 130 with no problem but then i started slacking from doing dailies and then i was playing WoW alot less...But when i cut down on my WoW was when pokémon Heartgold and Soulsilver came out.

But i'm just glad to ge that out of my way...Now i need to get another 150 for the Silver Covenant then i have to get 600 for all the ground mounts. Yipee!
