Sparkle Dragon

I usually make it a thing on Tuesday nights to run a few toons through Mogu’shan Vaults for the weekly chance of collecting the Elegon Mount; Reins of the Astral Dragon. I’ve run enough toons so far that I’ve pretty much collected every piece of transmog from there so it’s solely for Elegon I go in there now.

I decided I’d start the MV run with my Hunter last Tuesday before reset.  Usually there’s an axe that has Elegon in its title that tricks me each time I look into the loot chest but not this time. This run I had a much better surprise. There was lots of screams of joy as I realised it had really dropped.

My first joyride on it was off to Tempest Keep to see if my mount luck would strike again (nope).

Sparkle dragon puts my mount count at 298, so I’m inching closer to the 300 mark!

Now I need to decide which mount I want to chase after next; It’s probably going to be a toss-up between Ashes of Alar or Rivendare’s pony. Both are fairly quick runs which is handy for a reset night.

Still on my mount wish list is the Blazing Drake from Dragon Soul. Once it drops I’ll get two mounts for the price of one as it’s the last one I need for the Awake the Drakes achievement which gives another drake mount as a reward. I really don’t enjoy the Spine of Deathwing fight, even though it’s not overly difficult anymore, so it makes me think twice usually about just popping in for a quick mount run.

  1. Congrats! That’s one I’ve always wanted. Haven’t had the playtime in a while to chase mounts. That has always been something I enjoyed working towards.

    Except for Dragon Soul, for some reason, you can save yourself some time by clearing up to the boss that drops the mount and then sharing the lockout across toons. Used to work in Dragon Soul too, but they broke it last winter and I couldn’t be bothered to go back to doing Spine on every toon every week.
