Topic Finally got my frost wyrm mount! :D

I wanted to thank Blizz for deciding to keep the ICC mounts in longer than they had originally planned. I know there was some fuss over Blizz taking them out or leaving them in, but I'm glad they decided on the later.
I had a number of reasons I couldn't dedicate more of my time to raiding last year to get this earlier, as well as some terrible in-game politics preventing me from it. After my time opened up a little, I wrestled for several months with the Orb Whisperer bug and ended up helping 6 other people get their mount before me (they needed other achievements) while I still sat on that one. Finally, after numerous attempts, cycling through different groups, training many players on their first runs, and the bug fix from last patch, I got my mount a few days ago.
I'm also particularly grateful for this because I'm the weird sort of player who chooses his mounts based upon class theme. While other players are now using the elemental dragons and have reduced their frost wyrms to icons in a spell book, I only really wanted the frost wyrm on my death knight. I figured it was a great Forsaken or DK mount, and since my DK is Forsaken it was a match made in hell. It's unlikely I'll ever switch out this mount. ';..;'
Despite what frustrations I've had during this, on the whole I'd have to say it was fun. So again, I wanted to say thanks. :)
Hey, congratulation very much, Surexxi!
I actually had a question for you, if you wouldn't mind answering: exactly how to do you achieve the mount? I, too, like to choose my mount based on my class, and I am currently playing a Gnome Frost Mage (and absolutely loving it!). I happened to buy the WotLK Collector's Edition while I was working at GameStop (it was available for reservation for one day.. lol), so I have Frosty the Frost Wyrm companion.
I. WANT. THIS. MOUNT.
I just saw someone with it, and I HAVE TO HAVE IT!
Thanks for your time (or anyone else's)!
