There's a comment on wowhead where someone claims that two guildies got Son of Galleon. Doing some (easy) investigation I found that guild:
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/guild/nerzhul/Duh_Winning/roster?character=values&sort=lvl&dir=a

Now, I'm not up to checking everyone's mounts to prove or deny their comment, but one of you determined types are welcome to it.


I checked every 90, none of them have this mount.

If someone feels like checking the 89-87 guildies be my guest.

I find it strange how nobody from blizzard has commented on either thread.

They surley don't expect us to just forget about something as big as this.

All we ask is a verification that it is not working as intended.

This way we can STOP wasting our coins on Sha and Galleon each weel.

Blizzard its the right thing to do.

Just admit you made a mistake and we will forgive you.

Ima be pissed at wasted coins just for the chance at shas mount if it isn't even in the game.

Yeah, they said "we're looking into it" which a lot of us here just don't buy.

Blizzard always throws the "we're constantly looking at statistics" argument in our face when players complain about PVP representation, damage output, drops, etc.

For all their stat-watching prioritization, they're going to sit there and say:
It's something we're watching very carefully to ensure they're dropping correctly.


I don't buy it. No way in hell that this company never realized for almost 5 months that this particular item didn't drop.

I'm standing by my /tinfoilhat theory that these mounts were purposely held back for 5.2 to ensure people still kill Sha and Galleon to help the fresh 90s gear up. Otherwise it will be very difficult for fill Sha/Galleon groups.

I agree the response is pretty vague but at least its an official response that they're acknowledging our concerns.

Chances are they don't have enough data or research yet to confirm or deny anything since this came up yesterday.

All it is is a save face on their end where they talk like the mount actually drops. What will end up happeneing in the end is they ninja "buff" it(implement) and act like it's been there all a long as they start popping on various servers. This way they will never have to admit to a fault on their end even when in reality the past 4 1/2 months of sha/galleon kills have been 100% wasted effort when trying for the mount.

It's the same exact thing that happened with blingtron where they confirmed mounts dropped from it before 5.1 when in actuality they never did. Which was why in 5.1 they "buffed" the droprate on them(added them to the loot table) and people started getting them along with orbs of mystery.

Hey guys, take a look at this mod's response from the Heavenly Onyx Serpent's Wowhead* page:

People please stop reporting this comment. We are not going to delete it. I have personally seen this mount in game, and so the speculation that it cannot drop is false. I imagine eventually people will post armory links to back it up, but since only a very small percentage of the player base uses forums, and it is a very new and very rare mount, it will take some time.

If Blizzard can determine how many male players between the ages of 23 and 26 are playing Ret Paladins and using Seal of Insight while Gemming Agility/Crit , they can determine the drop rate of an item.

I did however find a level 89 toon that only has 5 mounts total. Not sure how that's even possible.
It's pretty easy. Especially since they made mounts scale to your riding skill at the end of Wrath. Before that you only ever actually needed four, and before they were learned into the spell book people sold or deleted old mounts they didn't need to save bag space. Now you only ever need two (basic ground, basic flying) or just one if you bought one off the Blizzard store or got a ground/flying TCG mount. Even a resurrected account with no other mounts on it will give you only two mounts if the class you boosted to 80 does not have any class mounts.

I'm tempted to start a one mount account now.. T_T It'd be a real challenge to just say no to additional shiny toys. The mount collector's version of the Iron Man Challenge.

The only sad thing about it is all you nonbelievers out there...


butbutbut my friends friend got the mount......he just doesn't remember the guys name or what guild he was in......or even what server he was on. BS people your friends friend never got the thing and until a change is made he never will. Show evidence through an armory link or get out.....but wowhead has pictures.....they HAD pictures which have since been removed for atleast the sha mount because they were not from live(and most likely private server/mod).
