Rare WoW Mounts
In real life, vehicles have two functions. The first is the vehicle itself. The second function is to race. Speaking more decently, a car is a status thing that defines who a person is, what he does and what his level of income is. Blizzy transferred this model to the game almost entirely. For a knowledgeable person enough to see a player on a particular mount to determine with a high degree of certainty who is in front of him. Racial mounts are ridden by pretty much everyone. It's like having a Zhiguli or Lanos. If you see a night elf on horseback, then most likely, in front of you is not a "casual", but someone who spends the game more than half an hour a day, if he decided to spend time on pumping his reputation with Stormwind to "exalted". If you see a dwarf on a bony horse and it's not Knight of Death, then you see a "hardcore ordinary", ran to Stratholm a few dozen times just to get a horse Baron. If you see a Zulaman Bear, you're looking at a successful raider who farmed this instance before Patch 3.0.2. If you see a motorcycle or a mammoth, rest assured - this player is wealthy if he can afford it.
You can easily buy some mountains at any time (if you have funds, of course), others - if your game level allows you to make achievements, for which you will receive them as a reward. That is, if you set a goal, getting a riding-flying animal is quite realistic. At the same time in the game there is a category of very rare maunts, which not only to get, not always see.
Often they are owned by only a few people on the server. Get them you can obutav some boss, and the chance that it will fall from the maunts is very small - about 1%, or even less. That is one chance per hundred.
So, what rare Maunts are in the game? Read about some of them below.

About the Baron horse I have already written. On my server saw and not just once. After WotLK came out solo passing Stratholm is not particularly difficult even for blue-green 80, not to mention the guys in T 8.5. There are even guides on how to get to the Baron in 15-20 minutes, bypassing the thrash. With Raptor and Zulian Tiger a little harder, but for a "full-epic" who knows his class, soloing in Zul'Guruba is not a problem. Well, for three or five guys, this instance shouldn't be a problem at all. Of that list, perhaps one of the most difficult to access mounds is Phoenix. Tempest Keep, a raid designed for twenty-five seventy now can be a serious challenge for those who have never been in it.
Was doing the Tournament dailies the day before yesterday as a group with a fellow Phoenix wielder. According to Sniss'a, the owner of the mount, on Moonglade'e the bird fell out of the Prince only three (!) times and he's the only alliance that has it. The other two went to the Horde. That's how it is.
