    I think it's good, people that want it will still very likely spend a lot of time to get it, but now it's not just a complete fluke when you get it. With strat being "old content" it doesn't get run nearly as much, and the mount will still be rare.

    But getting a drop that's 1/5000 is so much more worthy of a feat of strength. It's got an even intenser feeling to it!

    KJ cloak get.
    WSG achievements (minus 100 wins) get.

    Oh and some tips for those doing achievements: If you are one short of getting the tabard achievement (pretty common), drop your Illidari tabard and you can pick the other color up from tabard NPCs. Also, if you're struggling with Old Crafty, wait until the croc fishing daily comes around. It is bugged to an abnormally high drop rate w/ the quest active. If you don't get it within the first 5 or so casts (toss the croc or join a raid), relog and try again. I have seen people get Old Crafty 10+ times in a row. (does not work for Old Ironjaw).

    I don't get it. I got Old Ironjaw in like 20 catches.

    I spent 2000 casts in Ironforge the other day, nothing to show for it.

    Well I'm sure you can still get lucky with Old Ironjaw, Quicklet. Old Ironjaw took me about 5 hours personally The Old Crafty one is just bugged with the croc fishing daily, is what I mean. A lot of times when it gets fished up you won't be able to loot it (something to do with the bug) but it'll still give you achievement credit. It was pretty funny seeing 5-6 guildies getting the achievement done within a 10 minute time period.

    There's a feat of strength for getting a Red Qiraji Battle tank which is.... really easy. It took only 4 of us about an hour to farm maybe 8-9 various battle tanks, just doing the trash up to Skeram and giving it a bit to reset.

    Reds are rare as fuck, I've done 3 full clears of AQ40 since 3.0 and haven't seen a single one. Then again with 2000 casts and no ironjaw, my luck is somewhat suspect.

    I'm not looking forward to fishing in IF, maybe I can invisi pot->feign->repeat with beast on and log there.
    Also tried going to SW...got dazed at front gate and owned by guards in 10 seconds. I gave up after 2 deaths since the GY run sucks

    It should be a lot easier once people hit 80 and the guard aggro radius isn't so large.

    Yeah, I do AQ40 every sunday with a group of friends and have been doing it for 4-5 months, lately we've been bringing 40 people instead of the normal 15 though to help people out with achievements, and since we started bringing 40, at least one red per raid has dropped. Of course out of 40 people, I haven't won one.
    And I solo the AQ40 trash up to Skeram (the obsidian guys at least) and haven't seen a red one =( I have all but red, haha.

    If by crazy, you mean 200-300g.

    So this being my first 70 I'm not sure what to do now. Do I grind rep so I can get into Heroics? Do I do the higher level non heroics to get some gear for kara? Or go right into kara?
