Mounts that drop in raids/dungeons

I know i said this in the past but I am gonna say it again. These mounts need to go to all players who helped down the boss and were lucky enough to see the mount drop. I mean most of these mounts have such low % drop rates that you can run it for weeks and weeks and not see it. But when the one instance that it indeed does drop....why should only 1 person get the "gem" and the others who did their fair share be put down. It simply isn't fair. All dungeon/raid players did their part to down the specific boss (whether it be Heroic version, meeting form of criteria, etc) that everyone should be equally rewarded with the mount IF it drops to begin with. And before you say "rare is rare" the mounts are so low to drop anyways its rare enough to see them drop in the first place, hence they still retain their value. Just the concept of having a 10/25 raid and the blazing drake drops or something and only 1 person out of that whole entire group gets it is asinine and belittling. All those players achieved a common goal at the end and deserve a copy of that mount if and when it does finally drop! Keep it fair and keep it happy.

Back in the day people would have been happy they got to see it drop at all and even happier one of their friends got it.

Do you cry when you lose rolls on gear and weapons too?

Going in you KNOW everything is a random drop and only ONE person will win the roll. Id rather see my weapons drop instead of the mount. But IDC much about mounts. :)

If Blizzard did that, the drop rate would wind up being lowered even more, simply because five to twenty-five can get it at a time.

How about no(especially considering most mounts are becoming BoA), as someone else mention sometimes you win some and sometime you dont. If you really want it just save a ton of gold and buy it in BMAH.

Hey if its lowered thats fine. But if your still lucky to get it to drop then each member who made the moment possible DESERVE to be justly rewarded equally...not only a single person.

Yes and when the farming for months and months and it drops, yet 1 person only gets it....are you REALLY gonna keep going for it again and again. Cause after a while some folks get bored......new people come in...people who left had the mount which means older people from the group have an even lower chance.....yeah completely unfair in my book. No matter how you put it, any conjecture, any view point, and any story among story its the gonna end the same way, if the rare mount drops then each player absolutely is entitled to the mount and not only 1 special lucky snowflake!

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. That mystery is what keeps us playing and having fun.
The game is about playing the game; mystery solved!

But that's how loot works in the game for everything, and has worked, since the start of the game. It's just RNG. Pray to the loot gods some more.
Silly mortal! You're supposed to sacrifice a gnome by punting him into the fiery depths of Blackrock Mountain!!! The RNG & Loot gods look favorably upon such a sacrifice and will grant you untold rare drops!

Fair for all or none for all. Either all members are rewarded equally or no members get rewarded at all!

Real talk, but none of the people in a pug I consider a friend. =/ just saying. Specially if it's that one DPS who doesn't even have epic flying, and the Disc priest is doing more damage than him, yet this chap roll, usually wins then splits.

Guild run though, I wouldn't care at all if I lost roll.

/em Anii flies around the OP on her blazing drake

I still kill Midnight, because I want the mount
I still occasionally go smack Baron Rivenomgnohorseagain, because I want the mount
I help guildies get the OS10+3D drake, and / or try to get the OS25+3D drake
