I love being right
Directly from a blue post about the issue:
[The Pureblood Firehawk having a 100% droprate in normal mode] was fixed because the drop rate was never intended.
If I had a gold for each time I’ve had a rehash of the following conversation…
[Randomguy] whispers: hey, is your guild still selling the Ragnaros mount?
To [Randomguy]: Yup, our price is (price).
[Randomguy] whispers: lol no way I’m paying that much, it’s 100% droprate in normal mode now
To [Randomguy]: That’s a bug, it’ll get hotfixed soon. Besides, if you’re so sure, why not just grab a bunch of friends and go get it from normal mode?
[Randomguy] whispers: lol no it’s not a bug it’s even listed as 100% on the armory
[Randomguy] whispers: and I don’t wanna roll against 9 other people for the mount
…well, I probably couldn’t buy anything of worth since it’s not been that long since the patch hit, but I’d still have a decent sum of gold.
Good lord. It’s like people have never encountered a major, exploitable bug before.
