Rivendare’s Deathcharger!!

      Comments Off on Rivendare’s Deathcharger!!

I got it!  I got it!  {dances enthusiastically but looks more like a spastic monkey on crack}  I got the coveted Rivendare’s Deathcharger!  I’ve been running the Stratholme (Service Entrance) dungeon, almost every day, for a couple of months on 4 different characters.  Beating up that miserable bastard Lord Aurius Rivendare.  Today, my Lucky-Lock Kyllia dropped the incredibly hard to obtain mount!

Deathcharger's Reins

Just to give you an idea, here’s some of the info quoted by another player…

Deathcharger is a black (as per its model skin description) skeletal warhorse mount, notorious for its incredibly low drop rate – perhaps the lowest drop rate of any epic item.


For one run of a given instance, the odds are higher that…

  • Swift White Hawkstrider drops (61x more likely)
  • Ashes of Al’ar drops (40x more likely)
  • Swift Razzashi Raptor drops (28x more likely)
  • Reins of the Raven Lord drops (23x more likely)
  • Fiery Warhorse’s Reins drops (18x more likely)
  • Swift Zulian Tiger drops (10x more likely)
  • Baron’s Runeblade drops (3x more likely)
  • You are audited by the IRS
  • You will catch a baseball at a MLB game
  • You die from slipping in a bathtub
  • You have a life

If you’re in a group, divide the chance by five 🙂

The drop rate is now 1.0% (up from 0.02%) (source).

Although, I think the hardest mount to get these days is the Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake.  This is mostly due to cross server playing now.  There’s generally 5 – 7 players hunting that 24 hours a day.  I’m glad I managed to get that, not only once, but twice before the changes.
