Mount farming 101 – master post

So far my most popular post has been related to soloing raids – something I’ve mostly done for mounts.

However that post has a problem – it assumes that you’ve done the encounters at the level they were intended for and thus know the mechanics which can be ignored. And those which can’t.

After looking at search terms used to reach my posts – “Why does madness of Deathwing reset?” is one example – I’ve realized I need to do the instances in more depth. This means having a post per instance, which will take some time to write.

This is the master post used to collate all of the others together and will be updated whenever I write a new post.

And now the challenge begins – especially as we’re relatively close to the end of the last expansion with regards to gear. Whilst some of this is soloable, it will be easier with friends.

Note that Garrosh in the Siege of Orgrimmar does drop the Kor’kron Juggernaut, but only on mythic and I believe the drop rate is now at 1%. Mythic seige of Orgrimmar isn’t really soloable yet – you’ll need a good number of people with current good gear to get through it at that level. Perhaps I’ll do a write up in a couple of years when it’ll probably be soloable!
