Tips for a Starter at Mount Farming?

General Discussion
I was looking for something to do at 120 and i decided to go mount farming, but i have no idea what i'm doing. Does anyone have any tips for me on what mount to farm? i would prefer one from old content i don't really like farming the new ones.
1. Pick a mount
2. Kill boss
3. Loot
4. ???

It depends which mounts you would like to farm. A lot of them come from old raids but with very low drop chances. Wowhead has some mount farming guides out there, and you can see which ones you'd like to go for.
If you want to grind back to back, pick one in a normal dungeon.

If you just want to do a shot a day, pick on in a heroic dungeon (perhaps do several heroics if you're so inclined).

If you want to tear your hair out, pick a raid dungeon.

Another mechanism is to do old achievements and get mounts that way.

I mean what mounts are the easiest to farm.
As a general rule, I keep myself from burning out by picking one expansion a week to farm for. For instance...

One week I'll farm the BC raids/dungeons for appearances, pets or mounts that I want. The next week I'll farm Wrath dungeons/raids, the next week I'll farm Cata, etc. Basically, I just keep myself from farming the same expansion to death, so I don't get sick of it. I could farm all of them every week, but I'd burn out very quickly if I did so.

There are no "easy" mounts to farm. They have like .01% drop rates. You just pick what you want, or go for all of them, and do the dungeon/raid/egg/whatever until they drop. Sometimes it's quick. Most of the time it takes months, or years, to get mount drops.
Take a look at the site warcraftmounts.com and browse through it. It will have how its gotten and a link to wowhead for more info.

Have an alt army. The more characters you have that can farm a mount, the better your chances will be.
These two are good starter mounts: you can get one a week:

Religion is usually a good start since most of it is dumb luck.

Here you! Hover over a mount from any expansion. Go for it. They also have a planner for old drop mounts. Really good website, I use it all the time!

I have never heard of that site before, that's really neat.
Focus on 2/3 at a time instead of doing as many as possible, if you’re farming low drop chance mounts. I find that works for me, doesn’t feel as bad that way.
Get 10+ alts to increase your chance, also reroll on low pop rp servers for world drop mounts
Pray to RNJesus that you get lucky. I’ve got over 2500 attempts at invincible on 16 Alts and still have not got it
Get the Rarity addon.
Instances with mounts that I can remember...

Stratholme (Dead side)
Tempest Keep
Magisters Terrance (heroic)
Utgarde Pinniacle (Heroic)
The Eye (25)
Obsidian Sanctum (100%) (10/25)
Ulduar (25)
Icecrown Citidel (25)
Stonecore (heroic)
Skywall (Heroic)
Throne of the Four Winds
Firelands (heroic)
Dragon Soul (10/25)
Throne of Thunder
Siege of Org (mythic)
Blackrock Foundry (mythic)
Hellfire Citidel (Mythic)

Those are the instance mounts I know of. Rest are really from getting exalted with factions and buying them off the vendors, rare mob drops, or such. You need to look up guides for those ones.

BTW to get all buyable mounts, I think you need... 8mil gp? 5mil for the aunctioneer mount, 2mil for the spider, 1 mil for all other mounts.
