Vitreous Stone Drake

I am looking to get my hands on this mount in the most efficient way possible; an all ner'zhul server group. We will be running Stonecore on regular up to Slabhide and resetting until it drops, or need to break until we can come back later. I have numerous different idea for payment and i'll let whatever people are willing to make some easy gold decide.
a. 2k to everyone upon mount dropping (better short run)
b. 100g to every one each attempt and 5k to a honorary winner of the roll upon mount dropping. (better long run)
c. 50g per person per run and 1k to everyone upon mount dropping.

As I'm a dps i will need 2 more DPS and a tank and heals.

Let me know if there is any interest.

There is your problem. The mount does not drop off normal Slabhide, only heroic Slabhide. at a 1% drop chance.

Talked to a GM yesterday (3/12/2011) He confirmed Slabhide does drop the Vitreous Stone Drake on normal mode of Stonecore...95 solo kills now and no mount. The wow gods must be angry.

I feel you Eregis. I just finished my 115th solo run on my hunter and no luck. I've probably done another 30-40 across my other characters and never seen it. I want to give up, but I've already invested so much time I can't stop now. It needs to drop soon....it's making me sick of wow haha

Remember that MOP will bring account wide mounts, so if you have it on an alt (lucky I do) than we do not need to farm for main! Like SH on 2 toon's in WOTLK,,, ~~

Drop rate on normal is the same. I got mine a few hours after release the night Cata dropped.

You can solo normal on a 370ish ilvl DK assuming you know how to play one, so you might see an easier time that way.

I'm pretty sure Arian from BM was soloing the normal version trying to get the mount and he's a hunter so provided you're in DS gear I don't think you'll have much trouble soloing it. It does drop in normal I've seen it 3x in normal lost all 3 times and I've never seen it in heroic.

Hey guys, for anyone still farming this mount, it drops on BOTH heroic and normal. The drop rate is a fantastic 1%. It's easily soloable now, ecspecially because our ilvls can get as high as into the 400's. The runs can take around 10 mins max if you know how to do it. Check out guides on soloing for a specific class. It took me around 10 times to finally know how to handle the trash packs. If you're a hunter, it's very easily. Don't know about other classes though. Took me 18 times to get the mount to finally drop. Best of luck to all!

Farmed this mount for about 2 weeks. Ran it at least twice a day. Blood DK makes it very easy to farm. Just skip a few mobs here and there and boom mount drops. Hehe.

I want to emphasize this sentence if people haven't noticed it. Because mounts will become account wide in the expansion you can farm the mount on any of your characters and if one of them gets it you will have it on all of your characters when the 5.0 patch drops. Should make it a little less stressful if you have a superior character to farm it on.

Also, I hear it drops on normal mode

The mount DOES drop on normal. All you gotta do is look at the dungeon journal on normal mode and see the drake on the loot list. Same goes for the other mount drop from Cata.
