So, as you all know, TLPD (Time Lost Proto Drake) was a very rare, infact SUPER rare mob in Storm Peaks, that drops the illusive mount, of his skin.
Now to get this mount while Lich King was the current expansion, was a huge bragging feat.
Even today, to see someone with the mount, is pretty “Wow”.
Now in the next paragraph or 2 I explain my Method on attaining him. Though I did get pretttty f’n lucky.
Since the server population is a little low, I only had to compete with 1 or 2 people also looking for the mount at a time. Though it can be a bit frustrating, camping in a spot only to have the mob spawn at the location your competitor is sitting at.
The approach I took, was make sure you have something else to fucking do while you wait!
I played a solid 10 hours of NHL 12 waiting for my _NPCScan to go off.
Speaking of which, make sure you download _NPCScan and _NPCScan Overlay. As these will be tremendously helpful.
I also made a macro that was for both of the Spawns
/tell Dillzy > %t <
Very simple, I just clicked this as I’d go, kind of a backup, in case that add on bugs out.
I did a lot of research on the spawn timer, and most common spawn locations.
From what I read, and what I experienced it is between 6-8 hours between spawns of either the 2 mobs.
Now, unless I forgot something this is what I experienced camping for him.
I picked my mage to camp, easiest to get there, slowfall, and had mining, so Killed some time mining.
Me and my friend killed Vyragosa at about 1130 pm “Friday” I wasnt going to get up at 6 am to find a stupid pixel creature, lol.
But I did log on around 12pm “Saturday” nothing, nothing nothing.
Constantly flying back and forth between camp points, I would sit at either of the red circles for no more than 10 minutes at a time. I read that the most common spawn point of Time Lost him/her self was the one above the village, where all the blue dragons fly around.
So that was my main focus for camp/check points.
The location in which I found Vyragosa was in the valley next to the Fairie bitches, she was flying east.
Yadda Yadda Yadddddda.
Around 4 ish “Saturday” while I was making dinner I went downstairs to check to see if the NPC went off.
And ultra surpisingly it did! Quickly targeted him, did a quick /who saw there was 1 other 85 in here.
He was right where I was camping, where the blue proto drakes are, just north of the village. He was flying North along that “path”.
Went to the fucker, dismounted, ice lance, slow fall. Landed Frostbolted the guy! WIN! WIN! WIN!
By this time I was shakin like a mo’fucka, but I couldn’t believe it only took me no less than 24 hours to get the beast!
Anyways that’s all.
Just fly back and forth between the 4 circles, and camp at the furthest east one.
