The hotfix is more likely data for "Love is in the Air".


One doesn't necessarily preclude the other.

As Tamamo just pointed out, if that mount did indeed drop following the restarts then that's one massive coincidence. But, as I said several threads ago-

Probably the smartest thing they could do would be to quietly hotfix a bump to the drop rate so that a handful of players could get it in the coming week.

People would inevitably point out the convenient timing, but the plausable deniabilty and the fact that people are getting the mounts would probably cool most tempers. It would be a hell of a lot less egg on their face than coming out and saying "yeah we botched it so the mounts never dropped sorry."


A quiet fix is pretty much what I expected of Blizzard.

I find the possibility of a drop happening within 6 hours of updating a loot table on a relatively small portion of wow players low. That, and the player himself didn't report it. Either they're dropping like mad in EU now, or it's just a coincidence.

You keep saying "relatively small portion of wow players."

The EU servers aren't tiny, dude. That's 6 hours for, what, several thousand people? to knock out a 5-minute boss fight. The possibility does exist that the mount's been hotfixed.

So I went to go compare his mount to the screen caps on WoW head because I thought something looked off. His mount has the typical Cloud Serpent saddle, I don't recall the ones on WoWhead having them.

The WoWhead screen shots have mysteriously vanished now.

The Sha mount DOES drop. There is the proof.

No sign of Galleon's mount, though...

They were removed because they were flagged as being fake, aka using that program that morphs your mount.

This has been stated for the past 2 pages already, you're a bit late to the party. And they only got it AFTER the EU servers reset.. I assume we will start seeing some on US shortly after resets.

They got yanked yesterday under suspicion, one of the mods over there edited the top post on the HeavOnyx to tell people to stop reporting it, then re-edited the post to pull the warning. The screencaps got yanked about the same time as far as I know.

I suspected as much, wasn't completely sure as I don't have an account over there and I don't often read the comments given people like to post misinformation :P.

Enough said. I checked armory and everything, no mod or nothing. Legit.

Randomly; A server restart?

Sure it'd be nice if they acknowledged it, but it looks like they ninja fixed it in what? Four days? For something people came in and repeatedly wailed about how stupid we were? How it positively dropped and we were crying over RNG? When people came in and told us to shut up and it wasn't worth bothering Blizzard about? And now we see the first rooster strutting of the mount after resets in Europe?

It's not a "My bad," but I'm happy that it looks like it's been fixed to now drop.

More like I was expecting nothing until at least Tuesday and more likely nothing until 5.2.
