Hey there, guys! This is Reckles with WTBGold and today we’re talking about how to farm the new mount in Battle for Azeroth, the Dune Scavenger. This is an awesome Hyena ground mount and you could make a ton of gold in BFA even if you only farmed this. From my experience I’d expect this mount to sell for 500k to 1m early on in the expansion and settle in at about 50,000 to 100,000 gold each after about 6 months. So as I said, you’ll be AOk if you just farm this as your entire gold making strategy. But in addition to that, I got 80 greens and about 1000 cloth before the mount dropped, and I couldn’t find it in my footage but I also looted an epic at some point in this journey.
Blah blah blah, even if you don’t want the mount for yourself, go out here. Now I haven’t done a video on it but there are actually 7 sellable mounts we know of so far, 3 from professions 2 farmed in the alliance zones and 2 farmed in the horde zones. For the crafted mounts, the Engineering one Mecha-mogul Mk2 has absolutely the best mount special in the game, and while the pattern drops from the motherload dungeon, no one knows where the reagents come from, but I suspect one of them comes from Ulduar.
For the blacksmithing mount, the Gallywix ATV, we can’t get the required patterns on the beta. The fishing mount, Great Sea Ray shares the same model as the darkmoon skate even though skates and stingrays are different animals Blizzard! Also, it’s drop rate is 1%. That’s so high that people who enjoy fishing are going to very quickly have guild banks full of these. Hopefully Blizzard makes it 1 out of 500 and only from pools.
For the farmed mounts, the Leaping Veinseeker which I lovingly call the “Flying Nope” is going to be the most expensive but it’s the most awesome I’ll cover that in the next video. Goldenmane is just a basic horse model so only completionists will care about him, and the Terrified Pack Mule is just a donkey, so who cares? I mean, he’s really cute, but I can’t do a guide on him because no one knows where you get him from. My money is on Hexthralled soldiers though.So if boring mounts and uncraftable items are out, let’s farm us up a hyena. The dune scavenger drops in the horde zone Vol’dun. It’s the desert zone and don’t worry my alliance brethren, you can come out here once you hit max level so everyone can farm this up. Probably wanna turn off war mode though. As far as we know, he drops from any Sethrak in the horde continent. These are the new snake people in BFA, and most of them are in Vol’dun. The confirmed drops are from the Sethrak Skycallers and the Faithless Aggressors.
Almost all of the sethrak are quest mobs so they all force spawn and they live in camps so they’re all pretty packed together, but I found that the skycaller area is just a little too spread out for efficient farming and some of the enemies hit real real hard. I did find one really really good spot just west of the dried up lake bed.
Here there are 14 enemies and the best way I found to gather them up was to mount up, run around past all the lightning pillars and regroup behind this big rock. The casters take a while so if you have ranged interrupts or extended silences that will speed things up, but as I said these are force spawn because they’re quest mobs. This means a minimum number of enemies have to be up all the time, in this case it’s 4, although some of them spawn in pairs so you’ll have 8 respawn together occasionally. I can’t tell you what the drop rate is because it’s beta, we don’t have any numbers yet on wowhead, but I was killing about 600 enemies an hour when I was farming solo. I highly recommend you do this as a group though. One of the Team Farm Squad members, Persephone, came out and helped test this and it was much easier even with two people.
I put down markers for where they spawn and we just haphazardly split the camp in two and aggrod each side to the center. If I were to make an idea comp to farm this day in and day out, it would be a brewmaster monk who puts his ox statue right where I have the skull marker, and then 2 or 3 boomkins to pull the sides with the 45 yard range on starfire, along with a survivable burst AoE class, like Affliction locks. If you kill something while channeling drain soul, you generate a soul shard and can essentially just infinitely spam the talented seed of corruption. But whatever, with 5 people these will be dying ridiculously fast. I’d also recommend you come out here on a tailor or enchanter because I got about 80 greens and 1000 cloth before I looted the mount. If I was on a tailor, that’d be 1500. So, I farmed solo for 4 hours, and spent another hour 2-manning it, and after just over 3000 kills I got the mount! Wooo! It’s so adorable and the color scheme is fantastic! It even has a little basket of bones.
Little treats for when you mount is being a good boy. But ok, drop rate. Based on other reports of this mount dropping and the fact that it only took me 1500 kills to get the Leaping Veinseeker, my gut tells me the drop rate for all these mounts it’s about 1 in 2000. I probably just had slow RNG. I hope you enjoyed the guide and good luck on getting your mount. Sell as many of these as you can stomach farming in the first month, because once group farming for these becomes more popular, prices are going to fall dramatically.
But that’s it for me. Subscribe to WTBGold. And today only, I’m giving everyone who likes this video a free brutosaur mount. 😛 Let me know of any cool farms you find in BFA or if you learn where to get the other mounts I mentioned. But other than that, thank you for watching. Good luck and happy goldmaking..
