World of Warcraft dungeon and raid mount drops 3


Each and every expansion pack brings a lot of new raids and dungeons, and a lot of these has a low chance to drop mounts. This guide will include all the mounts that has a chance to drop from any dungeon or raid boss, and not the ones tied to achievements.

This guide is formatted by expansion pack and if it’s a dungeon or raid, beginning with vanilla dungeons. Each boss should have a brief strategy explained, unless it’s totally not needed.

Anyway, good luck on farming your mounts!

World of Warcraft vanilla dungeon mounts

Deathcharger’s Reins

Drops from: Lord Aurius Rivendare in Stratholme (level 50 instance)

Drop chance: 0.7 %.

Comment: This mount has a pretty low drop chance, but the instance can be farmed endlessly, so it’s a lot easier to get then the mounts that are locked to one attempt each week. You can only enter the same instance 5 times per hour, so expect to log in and do five runs, then wait for 30-40 minutes while the timer resets.

Tactics: There is really no need for any tactics, since level 50 content is extremely easy. However, you need to clear all the bosses leading up to the endboss, and kill the necromancers in the basement below the bosses.

Update: Updated with the correct screenshot.

World of Warcraft vanilla raid mounts

Qiraji Resonating Crystals

Drop chance: blue, yellow and green: 10 – 15 % per mob.

Red: 0.1 % per mob.

There are a total of 4 Qiraji Resonating Crystals. These all drop from thrashmobs in AQ40, and the blue, green and yellow ones drop all the time, so you should get these in a few minutes.

The best way to farm the red one is by just clearing the instance each week and kill all the thrash possible. The content should be easily soloable by any level 90, but you might get some problems with Twin Emps, which is the 2.nd last boss. Just keep them separated and nuke them before they can regen.

All four mounts count as a regular mount, and towards the mount achievements. The red mount awards a Feat of Strength achievement!

Tactic: The mounts can drop from any mob, so you have two choices:

1) Just keep clearing the instance every week.

2) Kill the first eight thrash mobs (but not the boss), then soft reset by running outside. Repeat until you got all four mounts!

Note: These mounts cannot be used outside of AQ40!

The Burning Crusade dungeon mounts

Reins of the Raven Lord

Drop chance: 1.6%

Drops from: Reins of the Raven Lord drop from Anzu in Sethekk Halls (heroic).

Every class should have an easy time clearing the adds and the boss itself, but make sure you don’t pull a way to large amount of adds.

Previously, you needed a druid to be able to summon him, but he has changed, and now appears as a regular boss on heroic difficulty.

Swift White Hawkstrider

Drop chance: 4 %

Drops from: Kael’thas Sunstrider in Magister’s Terrace (heroic).

This mount only drop on heroic difficulty, and can therefore only be attempted once each day. Any level 90 should be able to do this dungeon without any real tactic, so just rush through it and kill the endboss.

Kael’thas Sunstrider also has 8 % chance to drop the Phoenix Hatchling, a battle pet.

The Burning Crusade raid mounts

Fiery Warhorse’s Reins

Drop chance: 0.8 %.

Drops from: Attumen the Huntsman in Karazhan.

This drops from the first boss in the raid, so it should only take a few minutes to do. He is extremely easy for a level 90 to kill, but kill the adds before you pull him if you are squishy.

Ashes of Al’ar

Drop chance: 2 %

Drops from: Kael’thas Sunstrider in The Eye (Tempest Keep)

Kael’thas is actually the endboss, but can be killed first, so no need to dispose of the other bosses first. His fight is a bit tricky, but any level 90 with decent gear should be able to do him.

First phase is really easy, so just nuke each one as it attacks you. Second phase is also pretty easy, and just make sure to kill all his weapons. The third phase can be the tricky one, because the four adds will CC you hard! The best strategy is to nuke one as fast as possible, then go for the next one. Most likely, you’ll be able to nuke the first one before they begin to CC you, and the rest of the phase should go smoothly.

Protip: Any class that can use staves should pick up and equip the legendary staff. This will lower your DPS by a lot, but make you immune to most of the stuns in phase 3.

If you’re unable to nuke the first add fast enough, try to seperate the places you kill them in the first phase. This can make the fight a lot more easy, since they will have to run towards you before they can CC you.

The last phase is simple tank and spank.

Wrath of the Lich King dungeon mounts

Reins of the Blue Proto-Drake

Drop chance: 1.5 %

Drops from: Skadi the Ruthless in Utgarde Pinnacle (heroic)

This level 80 heroic raid should also be pretty easy, so just make your way there by killing the adds, and skip all the previous bosses. The bossfight itself is really easy, and just make sure to pick up all the harpoons so you can kill his mount.

The 2.nd phase should be without any problems, so just nuke him.

Reins of the Bronze Drake

Drop chance: 100 %.

Drops from: Infinite Corruptor in The Culling of Stratholme (heroic).

This is not a regular mount drop, and is instead tied to the timed event. The Infinite Corruptor will spawn a timer once you start clearing the instance, and will leave 25 minutes after this timer starts. Simply clear the instance before the timer expire, and you get your mount.

Note that the Infinite Corruptor is located before the final dungeon boss, not after it. Go to the left after the Gauntlet to reach him.

Wrath of the Lich King raid mounts

Reins of the Grand Black War Mammoth

Drop chance: 1 %.

Drops from: Any of the four bosses in Vault of Archavon.

Each of the four bosses in Vault of Archavon can drop this mount, so kill as many as you are able to. The two easiest ones should be really easy for any class, but a lot of people might have a hard time with Toravon. The general strategy for all four is simply to nuke while staying out of shit on the ground.

Reins of the Azure Drake + Reins of the Blue Drake

Drop chance: 3 % chance each.

Drops from: Malygos in The Eye of Eternity (10m and 25m).

Both of these mounts drops from Malygos in either 10man or 25man, so just do the one you are the most comfortable doing. Previously, one was tied to 10man, and the other one to 25man, but this changed when the began sharing the same lockout.

A lot of people are having problems with soloing Malygod, but it’s actually pretty easy. Phase 1 is just tank and spank, but once he hit 50 %, nuke as much as you are possibly able to! Ranged classes should be able to get him to 30 % or even lower, which will make the third phase a lot easier.

The second phase is also easy, and just kill each of the adds. In the third phase, use the following abilities: 1-1-2-3. Just fly around him in circles to avoid the zaps while you spam these abilities. You should heal more then he can damage you, and he will eventually die.

Reins of the Twilight Drake + Reins of the Black Drake

Drop chance: 100 %.

Drops from: Sartharion +3D in The Obsidian Sanctum.

Both these mounts are tied to defeating Sartharion while all three of his drakes are alive. The Black Drake drops from the 10man version, while the Twilight Drake drops from the 25man version.

Most classes should be able to solo kill the 10man version bu simply nuking him. It will take about 50 seconds before the adds will start attacking you, so kill him before they reach you! Just make sure to kill all the other non-drake adds before you pull.

The 25man version has the same strategy, but is extremely hard to do alone. Just bring 2-3 friends, and you should be able to get him down pretty easy.

Reins of the Onyxian Drake

Drop chance: 1 %.

Drops from: Onyxia in Onyxia’s Lair.

This was once one of the most uncommon mounts in the game, but soloing Onyxia is pretty easy these days. The mount can drop from both the 10man and the 25man version of the raid, so go for 10man if you plan on soloing her.

Soloing her should be easy, and the tactic is simply tank and spank. The lifts off for the 2.nd phase of the fight, but just keep damaging her to get her to land again. Just use any ranged power you have available while you also kill the adds.

Mimiron’s Head

Drop chance: 3 %

Drops from: Yogg-Saron (with no watchers, 25man only) in Ulduar.

Soloing Yogg-Saron 25man without any watchers can be really hard, and only some classes can do it.

Invincible’s Reins

Drop chance: 4 %

Drops from: The Lick King (25man heroic) in Icecrown Citadel.

This extremely rare mount drops from Lich King himself, but only on heroic difficulty in the 25man raid. Some Blood Death Knights, guardian druids and a few other class/specs have reported being able to solo him, but this is currently extremely hard! Unless you are really patient, or are incredibly geared, I suggest waiting until next expansion pack.

Cataclysm dungeon mounts

Reins of the Drake of the North Wind

Drop chance: 0.8 %.

Drops from: Altairus in The Vortex Pinnacle (normal and heroic).

Comment: The mounts drop in both regular and heroic version of the dungeon, so it’s easiest to just farm it on normal. It is limited to 5 instances per hour.

Clearing tactic: Getting to Altairus should be fairly easy, and just kill add the adds you aggro on your way. Most of them can be skipped if you stay close to the walls and edges, but some have to be taken down on your way.

The Howling Gales can be tricky if you don’t know what to do, but just keep attacking them while you pass by, and they won’t cast their spell.

Boss tactic: Level 90 players should easily be able to take him down without having to use tactics, but generally stay away from wind in his favor, and stand in wind in your favor to increase the killspeed.

Protip: The quickest way to reset the instance is to jump of the platforms and run back in as a ghost!

Reins of the Vitreous Stone Drake

Drop chance: 0.8 %.

Drops from: Slabhide in The Stonecore (normal and heroic).

Comment: Like the North Wind Drake, this mount also drops in both normal and heroic version, so just grind the normal version. Any level 90 should be able to solo this boss. You can clear and reset the instance 5 times per hour.

Clearing tactic: This should be a quick run, but you need to clear a few adds. The first three gropus must be slayed, and Millhouse Manastorm must move towards the next group. I usually just DPS Millhouse while I kite the adds with me, and AoE them down at the third and final pack.

Upon reaching Millhouse Manastorm for the 4. th time, he will be eaten by the first boss, but you don’t need to kill it. Just go into the hole he created, and make your way trough it. You will encounter two Crystalspawn Giant, but these can be skipped. I usually just kill them instead of spending time skipping them, but they can hit pretty hard unless you’re a plate wearer. Once you finish the cave, keep going, and you should be at the boss in a few seconds.

Boss tactic: It is a pretty simple fight, and most classes can just skip the tactics and just nuke him. If you are somewhat squishy, move away from the black shades on the floor before the start doing damage to you.

Protip: You can use the teleporter right behind Slabhide to get teleported back to the entrance!

Swift Zulian Panther

Drop chance: 1 %.

Drops from: High Priestess Kilnara in Zul’Gurub (heroic only).

Should be soloable by most classes.

Make sure to kill all her panthers in phase one (lasts until about 50 % of her health), since she will enrage them once phase two begins. They will probably tear you apart in phase two!

The rest of the fight is pretty much tank and spank. Just attack her until she dies.

Armored Razzashi Raptor

Drop chance: 1 %.

Drops from: Bloodlord Mandokir in Zul’Gurub (heroic only).

Comment: This used to be impossible to solo, but was recently fixed so that it’s possible.

Now it’s actually an easy tank and spank-fight that most classes should be able to do alone. Getting to him is somewhat easy, but you need to kill a group of 3 trolls right before him, which can be a pain. However, make sure to kill the priest type troll first, as she will heal the two juggernaut types!

Make sure to do it alone without any pets, since they will get you killed!

Amani Battle Bear

Drop chance: 100 %.

Drops from: Timed reward in Zul’Aman.

Comment: Soloing the event can be pretty hard, but it’s a whole lot easier if you bring a friend or two. Just strike a deal with two friends that you do this event three days in a row and get all of you the mount.

Some classes can solo the event, but it’s kind of hard. Just make sure to keep the pace up while you clear the instance.

Cataclysm raid mounts

Reins of the Drake of the South Wind

Drop chance: 0.7 %.

Drops from: Al’Akir in Throne of the Four Winds.

Tactic: Al’Akir is soloable by some classes. Death Knights, Paladins and monks should have a pretty good chance at soloing him. Crazy high DPS’ers can also get him down, but you need about 130k to get him down before you die.

However, it’s even harder getting to him, as Conclave is really hard to solo. Some people manage to do it, but most people will need a lot of patience or help from a friend.

Flametalon of Alysrazor

Drop chance: 2 %.

Drops from: Alysrazor in Firelands.

Soloable by most leveel 90 classes. Make sure to have 500k or more health to be able to survive the tornado phase.

Smoldering Egg of Millagazor

Drop chance: 0.7 %.

Drops from: Ragnaros in Firelands.

This mount used to have 1 % drop chance in normal, and 100 % in heroic, but has been lowered to 1 % in both, so it’s best to do him on normal nowadays.

It is possible to solo Ragnaros, but pretty hard. Clearing up to Raggy is the hardest part, so you might want to bring a friend for the clearing up to him.

Experiment 12-B

Drop chance: 0.5 % in 10man, and 1.2 % in 25man.

Drops from: Ultraxion in Dragon Soul. It is currently impossible to solo this encounter, so bring a few friends.

Reins of the Blazing Drake

Drop chance: 0.7 %.

Drops from: Deathwing in Dragon Soul (normal and heroic). It is currently impossible to solo this encounter, so bring a few friends.

Life-Binder’s Handmaiden

Drop chance: 3 %.

Drops from: Deathwing in Dragon Soul (heroic only).

Used to be 100 % drop chance from heroic, but was later changed to 3 % when Mists of Pandaria hit. It is currently impossible to solo this encounter, so bring a few friends.

Mists of Pandaria dungeon mounts

No mounts currently drop from any dungeons in Mists of Pandaria. Sorry! Let’s hope Blizzard gets their game on for the next Expansion Pack.

Mists of Pandaria raid mounts

Reins of the Astral Cloud Serpent

Drop chance: 1.4 %.

Drops from: Elegon in Mogu’shan Vaults (normal and heroic).

Comment: It does not drop from LFR, so you need to gather a few friends if you want this one.

Spawn of Horridon

Drop chance: 1.6 %.

Drops from: Horridon in Throne of Thunder.

Comment: Does not drop in LFR. Obviously, it’s not possible to do this without a proper raid group, so you need some negotiating skills if you want this one.

Clutch of Ji-Kun

Drop chance: 1.9 %.

Drops from: Ji-Kun in Throne of Thunder.

Comment: Does not drop in LFR. Obviously, it’s not possible to do this without a proper raid group, so you need some negotiating skills if you want this one.

Kor’kron Juggernaut

Drop chance: 100 %.

Drops from: Garrosh Hellscream in Siege of Orgrimmar (heroic only).

Comment: This has a 100 % drop chance on heroic version only. 10man mode drops one, while 25man mode drops two each kill.

Drop chance will most likely be lowered to 1 – 3 % chance once patch 6.0 hits, just like Invincible, Life-Binder’s Handmaiden etc.

Mists of Pandaria World Boss mounts

I will write the majority of the information about these world bosses here, since they all share the same mechanics. Each boss uses the Personal Loot System, so it does not matter if you play in a group, raid or alone, as long as you deal damage to the boss.

You have a chance of getting the mount when using a coin, so make sure to always spend these on the following bosses!

Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent

Drop chance: 0.01 %.

Drops from: Sha of Anger in Kun-Lai Summit.

Note: It is personal loot, so there is not good way to farm this. Just tag the boss and hope for the best. The mount has a chance to drop from using a Charm.

Son of Galleon’s Saddle

Drop chance: 0.03 %.

Drops from: Galleon in Valley of the Four Winds.

Note: It is personal loot, so there is not good way to farm this. Just tag the boss and hope for the best. The mount has a chance to drop from using a Charm.

Reins of the Thundering Cobalt Cloud Serpent

Drop chance: 0.01 %.

Drops from: Nalak on Isle of Thunder.

Note: It is personal loot, so there is not good way to farm this. Just tag the boss and hope for the best. The mount has a chance to drop from using a Charm.

Reins of the Cobalt Primordial Direhorn

Drop chance: 0.05 %.

Drops from: Oondasta on the Isle of Giants.

Note: It is personal loot, so there is not good way to farm this. Just tag the boss and hope for the best. The mount has a chance to drop from using a Charm.

    This was an interesting read, and it gives me some things to work towards, but I’m really surprised that the Green Proto-Drake mount wasn’t mentioned…

    http://www.wowhead.com/item=44707

    • http://hakasu.no/ Hakasu.no

      It’s because the Green Proto-Drake is a quest reward, not a drop from a dungeon or raid.

        Yeah I realized that after I wrote my post. I had Googled “WoW mounts” and this page was a link from another site. I had totally missed the title of your page. Sorry to have wasted your time. :-/
