Garrison Mounts

Since the drop of 6.2.2, I've been actively clearing my garrison mission table. I've been doing this with hopes that I would see the rare gronnling garrison mission appear. This when completed, drops a coalfist gronnling mount!

Unfortunately, it has never dropped for me.. Looking at WoWhead, I see I probably don't meet all of the prerequisites. According to one commenter, for the quest to appear I need:

  • 3x followers with 675 item level
  • 7x followers with 645 item level
  • 675 item level on character (no need to equip the gear, you can just have it in your inventory)

I know I don't have 3 followers at (least) 675. I am still getting the quests dropping 645 gear tokens, I didn't think there was a point in upgrading them further than that. I've only reached 678 myself this week with the upgrade of my alchemy trinket to 5:6 (i.e. the Stone of Wilds). Instead I've been doing the fair-is-fair upgrade path, were my lowest geared followers were getting upgraded first. So everyone is around a 645-650 ilevel. 

Yesterday, I took to the air and completed the next round of 'training' exercises for my stable mounts. Sure a lot easier to fly between Ironbore and The Garn, instead of driving around.. The mounts are almost all in alignment. I completed 2 yesterday off against Garn, Wolf and Elekk. The last 4 should be completed next time I log on. 

This weekend, focus on my top 3 followers and make sure to level them up to 680...

  1. Look at the auction house. I have 10 characters each with 25 iLevel 675 followers. Some of my toons have gotten multiple grundling drop. The price on AH should be getting reasonable. God knows, I cannot sell for more than 8k.

So you've finally realized that the Bee Mount is the absolute BEST mount in the entire game. You want one, no, NEED one right now. OK, ...
