Talk:Reins of the Blue Drake

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The article was edited to state that the reins are no longer obtainable from the cache. This is not correct. As many players have confirmed that the bag was still dropping in HOcc after Cata. But you have to be on heroic and using the LFG to randomly get Occulus in order get the cache to drop. link 2 link 1. I edited the article twice now in order to put this point in. Please do the research before someone goes and edits this again. --Royalite (talk) 11:30, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

The real question is... Has anyone actually gotten the MOUNT from the cache after Cataclysm, or is the assumption being made that because the cache drops, the mount is still in it? -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 17:13, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
Well Wowhead has registered the mount to drop from the cache, and they have reset drop data with Cataclysm. ~ Nathanyel (talk) 21:28, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
It's a very short window... the only option to get this would be to lock your XP around 80-81, so you don't level out of being able to use the LFG to get it, and even then it has to be a random dungeon, and even if you manage to get Oculus, it has to randomly drop from the bag... so heh, good luck to anyone that manages to get it at this point.

Well, the mount HAS been confirmed to drop from Malygos post-Cataclysm, so I suspect they just changed their minds about the cache at the last minute. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 21:38, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
Odd enough I can't find mention of  [Reins of the Azure Drake] or  [Reins of the Blue Drake] within the Patch 4.0.3a notes Blizzard Euro Patch Notes. And reports are both drakes are dropping from Maly-10 1 and even both dropping at once 2. However, Wowhead is showing only  [Reins of the Azure Drake]3 from Maly. Others report even the GMs provided conflicting information about Maly mount loot tables. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Royalite (talk · contr).
Wowhead can be slow to update, and not many people are still doing Malygos these days. Alexstrasza's Gift mentions only 5230 recorded loots total. The Azure Drake is the only item that doesn't specify whether it drops from 10man or 25man, implying it registered drops from both versions. For the Blue Drake, I'd say more people at 85 are doing the 25man version in hope of the Azure Drake, so there's not enough data for 10man. ~ Nathanyel (talk) 08:34, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
