Restart of Mount Runs
I have decided to restart the mount runs I used to run some time ago.
The plan is to go to Tempest Keep for a chance at Ashes of Al'ar. Any level 70+ welcome for this.
For the remainder you will need to be level 80 or higher.
We will then head to The Obsidian Sanctum for either 25 man Twilight Drake or 10 man Black Drake depending on numbers and what people want.
If we control Wintergrasp we will head into Vault of Archavon and try for Grand Black War Mammoth, which drops off all 4 bosses in here. So 4 chances for a drop.
Next will be The Eye of Eternity and time to kill Malygos and grab Azure Drake or Blue Drake. Seems both of these can drop from 10 and 25 man.
Just a refresher for those who have either not been here in a while or never : This is a 3 phase fight.
P1 is a tank and spank against Malygos - normal dragon tactics (stay away from head and tail unless you are the tank).
P2 is where we need to kill mobs on discs. You either hop on the discs or range kill them from the ground whilst remaining within the bubbles.
P3 is the fun drake flying phase. Just all stack and move left when he casts Static Field. The rotation for the abilities is a steady 1-1-2-3. No need to rush the rotation.
Finally we will head over to Dustwallow Marsh and go and see old Onyxia. She may drop Onyxian Drake.
Hopefully we will get some mounts for people.
There are a few rules that I must insist on :
1. If you already have any of the mounts on any of your characters then you MUST NOT roll. When Mists is released shortly, all your mounts (bar a few class specific ones) will become account wide. Therefore if you already have a mount on one character, you do not need it on any others. These runs are to allow us all to get a chance to get these mounts on our account. I will ask that anyone signing up for these runs already knows which mounts they have and which they need.
2. You are free to come for only the raids you wish to. I would ask that you help the rest of the raid if we need the numbers as these raids will not take long. An hour should be enough time to do them all.
3. All loot will be on a Need/Greed basis. If you want any loot for transmog then please feel free to Need on it. This also goes for the OS/Onyxia bags and gems. The mounts will similarly be Need with everyone heeding rule 1 above.
4. If there are achievements that anyone wants, then feel free to go for them or ask before-hand. We will see how things go.
5. Cross your fingers. These mounts have a low drop rate, apart from the OS mounts which are a guaranteed drop.
I plan to run these runs every Monday and Wednesday for the next few weeks and hope to get as many people the mounts as possible. You are free to sign up for both runs and bring alts/mains as you want to each run - BUT remember rule 1 above. Yes, I am repeating this as I do not want to hear of someone winning a mount they already have as that will upset the rest of the raid/guild.
Good luck to us all and let's hope we get some mounts :)

Big thanks to all who attended this first mount run.
All went smoothly with only a few deaths.
Unfortunately we did not get any of the 8 random drop mounts.
If we ever get enough to split the teams into smaller groups, I will try and remember this.
OS is the only one which you need to be in 25 man mode to get the Twilight Drake mount. Even that one can be done with fewer than 10 good dps. But it's easier to just have more ;)
All the others can be done with fewer than 10 and the same mounts drop off both 10 and 25 man, so we would have more chances of a drop if we split into 10 man groups.
Anyway, thanks for coming and hopefully we will get one of the rarer mounts at some point for someone.

Thanks all for turning up and making it a smooth run.
We had 10 people which consisted of 2 tanks, 2 healers and 6 dps. This was a perfect mix and allowed us to split into 2 teams of 5 for most of the raids to increase the chances of a mount dropping.
Of course none of the random ones dropped :(
With a below 2% drop rate, this is to be expected. Hopefully we will see one drop soon though :)
Thanks again and grats to those who managed to snag a few of the achieves.

Sorry - late report.
Only 2 turned up, so thanks to Nelks and Sid :)
Me : Druid Healer
Sid: Pally dps
Nelks : Priest dps
We decided to try and 3 man TK. This went well until both Sid and I were mind-controlled and decided to beat Nelks to a pulp. As we were both still mind controlled the fight reset and we ressed Nelks. Second attempt went much better and Nelks managed to knock me out of mind control and Kael went down.
No mount sadly :(
We then went and gave Onyxia what for. Easy kill, even the whelps seemed to take it easy on us.
Again no mount :(
Thanks guys for coming along and giving us a shot at both bosses. At least we know it can be done with 3 :)
No % mount drops but congrats to Gluggie getting the Black Drake for 'OS'
Hopefully see a drop before mists, ill be ninja looting it tho :)
See u all for the next mounts run

As Nelks posted :
We will soon have everyone in the guild with the OS mounts at least :)
Keep coming along all, as a mount will drop one day ;)

Pretty smooth run considering the patch just hit and we lost Mass Summon.
Grats goes to Barkhoof who managed to snag himself a Grand Black War Mammoth.
We finally got a mount to drop :)
It was amazing. Winning a thing with a roll. Just imagine! This is an experience I'll with me to my grave.
Also, as a sidenote, damn them all for removing mass summon.
I was just wondering if you still do these mount runs, I'm new to the forums and I'm looking for people to help me with these mounts and also the achievement mounts from raids if anyone would be up for that
If ya still do them I'll have to look to transferring servers
We do mount and achievement runs now and then, if you are horde then we could always invite you via battle.net if you didn't want to transfer servers, although we do like new guild members so you would be more than welcome into the guild :)
Keep an eye out on the forums as we will post events here.
