Azure Drake Mount (EoE) Drop Chance

#1 » Post by Liqueur » 13 Jan 2016 19:24

As the title suggests, I'm making this post to inquire about the drop rate of the Azure Drake Mount that is obtainable from the chest that appears after defeating Malygos in both 10 and 25man versions of Eye of Eternity. And by drop rate I don't mean the percentage, I checked that in the armory before making this post and it says 1%; no, I mean if it's actually bugged or not, if anyone can confirm this or double check it.

Personally I've been farming EoE10 for almost 2 years now, while EoE25 half as much approximately, and I have never seen it drop. I have 100 Malygos 10man kills, and 52 Malygos 25man kills. This means we should have seen the mount drop 1 and a half times. Sure the odds might just be against us, and it very well could be, that we are just very unlucky, but I'm starting to doubt even that now. Aside from EoE, I've also been making VoA10s and Ony10s each week, with 182 Toravon the Ice Watcher kills for both 10 and 25man VoA (in my raids, we kill all 4 bosses always), and 180 Onyxia kills in total (the statistics tab has Onyxia's lair in the classic raids category so it doesn't count separately for 10 and 25mans). These are numbers for TW only, as these stats reset during transfer, so they are only counted since the Spermik merge. Personally I've seen the Onyxian Drake drop once out of these 180 runs, on 25man, with the drop rate of 1% from 10man and 2% from 25man Onyxia's Lair. As for the Grand Black War Mammoth, I actually lost count, but it must have dropped at least 5 times, if not more; it has the drop rate of 0.5%, but then again, it has 4x the chance so it's 2% per raid.

What I'm trying to get at, is that we've seen all these rare mounts drop, but the numbers don't add up for EoE. (Even the Ashes of Al'ar dropped after approx. 80 runs!) Another fact that worries me, that I don't know a single person on TrueWoW who has seen the Azure Drake Mount drop in any mode of EoE. Maybe I haven't looked for them well enough, but that's why I'm making this forum post now. I am hoping for 2 things with this post:

1. A GM confirming (after double checking) that there is nothing wrong with the EoE mount drop rate, that it works as it should, and that we've just been unlucky all this time.
2. A player confirming that they did indeed receive the Azure Drake Mount from EoE on TrueWoW (and possibly an approximate date to this event).

I am just looking for certainty in this hopeless quest of obtaining all the mounts ever. Please soothe a troubled mind with proof and facts and whatnot. Thank you!

One report is about the confusion regarding the Azure Drake and Blue Drake which isn't an issue as we know the Blue Drake drops from Oculus on this patch and the Azure Drake drops from both versions of EoE. The other report is about the Azure Drake's drop rate being 100% or not, which again isn't an issue since we know it should be 1%. So your links didn't really clear up my concerns.

Chasity wrote:Well in wowhead the rates are higher than what they were on wotlk. However I can confirm that I found it in the loot template with 1% drop chance.
According to Chasity it is present on the loot tables, so you are just being screwed over by RNG.

Well it still would be nice if some player actually show up with mount obtained on TW to make it clear. I remember on spermik we had EoE open for about year and at least 5 people got that mount.

Well there is always the chance Chasity was wrong and like Kaster said on his report the loot table is broken, and the wrong mount is linked.

That's exactly why I'm waiting for confirmation. Thanks for the inputs, tho.

Well actually I was wondering about that issue too for some time. I farmed a lot of EOE's both 10 and 25 men and never seen this mount drop even once.

No confirmation from GMs, nor proof from players that the drop rate would work as intended. I suppose it's safe to assume the drop rate of this mount is bugged, and should be looked into and fixed.

News are that you are just unlucky. I farmed ZG 3 years every ID to get tiger. Ask other people who didn't had much luck with specific drops too.

I will remain skeptical until someone can come up with proof regarding this. Statements like that don't prove anything.

Suggestion, set drop rate to 100% for testing purposes :)

Liqueur,

if you get your answer someday, please give heads up about the blue proto-drake from skadi
Drops from Skadi the Ruthless in Utgarde Pinnacle on heroic mode.
Never seen it within TW either

Mythilogic, I can confirm the blue proto-drake dropping on TrueWoW, I had the luck of getting it myself, here's the screenshot for proof:
Image
Although the date for that is 2013.03.24., which was a long time ago, so I can't confirm the drop rate hasn't gotten bugged since then. But I believe I saw other people mentioning getting it, so I can ask around, if that helps.
