12 runs (one for each class) of all three raids on 10 normal. Here's what dropped (I've included the Snobold Runt even though it isn't RWL, since everyone is trying for it at the same time):

Ulduar
  • 2x Magma Rageling
  • 6x Ironbound Proto-Whelp
  • 2x Runeforged Servitor
  • 3x Sanctum Cub
  • 5x Winter Rageling
  • 2x Snaplasher
  • 2x G0-R41-ON Ultratonk
  • 1x Creeping Tentacle
ToC
  • 3x Dreadmaw
  • 1x Snobold Runt
  • 4x Nerubian Swarmer
ICC
  • 1x Boneshard
  • 3x Blood Boil
  • 2x Blightbreath
  • 2x Soulbroken Whelpling
  • 2x Druge Ghoul
  • 0x Wicked Soul (bought one off the AH)

Glad I have an Ulduar ID saved on my hubby's account. So I only have to do Yogg :mrgreen:

Dear Yogg,

You have plenty of tentacles. I only want a little one. They do grow back right?

Yours, Gwen

PS: please include Mim's head... that is all.

It would have been easier if the Magnetic Core dropped by the Assault Bots worked, but right now it does not.
Since I'm Arms, ended up flying over to the rune dwarf hut just southwest of Ulduar, switching in Storm Bolt talent, and went back.
Basically, it was
Kill Lev2, kill VX001, when Automated Flyer appears, jump and wildly hit Storm Bolt, then Heroic Throw 4-5 times until Storm Bolt is off cooldown, then repeat.
When all parts join together, do the same thing, focus on the head, until it dies, then quickly do the rest.

Since my last post, I've reached 10/16 (with 11 characters), and still have a half dozen more characters to run.

Actually it does work. However there seems to be a LoS problem if you don't move the Aerial Command Unit out of the center of the room. Hit it with a ranged attack and move to the walls or doors of the boss room. Once it starts following you around, you can use the Magnetic Core to bring it down.
In the last phase of the boss fight it's basically the same issue. Move the boss away from the center and focus on the head until it is down to 1 HP and starts the self-repair. Typically you can burst down the other parts within seconds. Remember to use abilities that cleave.

I did it this way on 3x Warriors, 3x Palas, 5x DKs, 2x DHs and an Enh. Shaman (all 100 - 110) and all possible modes (10m, 10m hard, 25m, 25m hard) and had no trouble. Although I recommend not doing 25m hard mode on a lvl 100 warrior. That takes quite a while even with Storm Bolt.

Out of curiosity in what mode did you kill Yogg-Saron? With all Keepers helping or one of the hard modes (0 - 3 Keepers)?

I've only ran through the raids once because i'm not big on twinking.

Got: Ironbound Proto-Whelp, Runeforged Servitor

Also: You can absolutely defeat Mimiron with a warrior using Heroic Throws, it just takes a while (although i was 110 when i tried.)

I also beat Mim with slow heroic throwing. Where there's a will...
Also, if it's not clear. Drudge Ghouls only appear to only come from normal Lich King while wicked souls are from heroic. Which means anyone that wants to farm a mount is not going to see Drudge ghouls.Anywho, here's my results from mixed tries. I'll probably do all 10 man next week to finish up some mogs (or try to)

For my purposes, a run is ICC, Ulduar and Trial of Crusaders. I had to do ToC normal on a few alts as it won't let you do heroic if you haven't done normal and I haven't farmed TOC much.

All alts were at least 100 with prelaunch farmed gear. One druid was 650 because I forgot to go back and get the cape/trinket/rings off the vendor. Most had a fairly easy time but I varied what difficulty I was doing based on the fact I haven't really played some of these since Cata. So. Their rotations are unfamiliar to me. Still managed to do Yogg heroic on all. Oddly, I found 10 man harder. It seemed like 10 man my insanity dropped to 37ish% almost immediately and stayed there. Whereas 25 it never got touched until I went into the brain room.

Run 1 - 10 Man Heroic - 4 pets
Sindragosa, Putricide, Icehowl (Snobold), Hodir

Run 2 - 10 Man Normal- 3 pets
Anub, Freya and Hodir

Assembly of Iron, Mimiron, Ignis

Run 6 - 10 Heroic - 5 pets (ToC 10N)
Razorgore, Assembly of Iron, Freya, Mimiron, Jormungars (Dreadmaw),

Run 7 - 25 Heroic (ToC 25N) - 4 pets
BONESTORRRMM, Saurfang, Auriaya, Jormungars (Dreadmaw),

Run 8 - 25 Heroic - 1 pet
Hodir

Run 9 - 25 Heroic (ToC 10N) - 3 pets
Arthas (Wicked Soul), Iron Assembly, Anub

Run 10 - 10 Man Normal- 3 pets

THANK YOU for this information! I'm sure it was listed elsewhere but I had missed it.

My results from 2 ICC runs (one heroic), 3 ToC and 3 Ulduar runs:

Boneshard x2
Blightbreath
Wicked Soul
Dreadmaw
Nerubian Swarmer
Ironbound Proto-whelp
Winter Rageling
Runeforged Servitor x2
Creeping Tentacle

For the curious, I got the Tentacle on 25H and did have the various buffs from the other bosses. I only ran this boss twice as I got it the second run and couldn't stomach running ALL of Ulduar again. Very grateful to shave even a *little* bit of time off that raid!!!

Well, that would explain my lack of Wicked Souls.... guess I'll do the last few on heroic. Wonder if it's a difficulty thing for the tentacle too.

Edit: And 2 runs of heroic after reading this, I got one. That really should have been something that was noted in the pet journal like the other difficulty restricted pets (in ToT and Siege).

Here's mine:

All my toons ran ICC on 25H. Figured I'd keep doing that until I get the heroic pet from Arthas and then I'll run normal mode. Aaand... he never dropped the pet. ._.
Boneshard: 1/10
Blood Boil: 2/10
Blightbreath: 1/10
Soulbroken Whelp: 2/10
Drudge Ghoul: 0/10
Wicked Soul: 0/10

All my toons also ran Ulduar on 25man.
Magma Rageling: 3/10
Ironbound Protowhelp: 1/10
Runeforged Servitor: 3/10
Sanctum Cub: 4/10 (same breed on all 4)
Winter Rageling: 2/10
Snaplasher: 1/10
Ultratonk: 3/10
Creeping Tentacle: 0/10

Only my main completed normal ToC, so everybody else ran normal ToC 25man.
Snowbold Runt: 1/10
Dreadmaw: 1/10
Nerubian Swarmer: 1/10

For Mimiron, my warrior and rogue managed the last phase by standing in his middle and then spamming their AoEs. Had to forego pushing the button, though.

I always kill Arthas on 25H while I clear out the rest of the raid on normal, but I have yet to see a Wicked Soul, maybe swapping to heroic for only one boss mucks stuff up as well? It really shouldn't but hey you never know.

@Merana I did 25 man Yogg-0 for everone but one toon and the tentacle dropped on Yogg-4 for him...however I think its completely random regardless of the difficulty (no better no worse)

Yeah, I ran Yogg with no watchers 5 times, got nothing, now tried it twice with all 4 watchers and also got nothing, RNG will be RNG :lol:

Well, I just ran Yogg+4 for the 3rd time and the pet dropped. :mrgreen:

20x Yogg+0 and a couple of Yogg+1/Yogg+2 runs didn't drop anything. I guess we might be onto something here.

Or you finally got lucky. Hard to say with just that data point. But I'll work to replicate it!

With all this great info, has anyone tried to calculate an overall pet drop chance, assuming it's equal among all pets?

Say 10%?

PS: Just got mine. Time to assemble my tentacle team:

- Creeping Tentacle
- Jade Tentacle
- Hungering Claw

I love theme teams :)

I did seven runs through all three instances. Here is the outcome:

Ulduar (25 man)
0x Magma Rageling
1x Ironbound Proto-Whelp
3x Runeforged Servitor
3x Sanctum Cub
1x Winter Rageling
2x Snaplasher
1x G0-R41-ON Ultratonk
0x Creeping Tentacle

ToC (twice on heroic, five times on normal)
2x Dreadmaw
1x Snobold Runt
3x Nerubian Swarmer

ICC (25 man)
3x Boneshard
3x Blood Boil
0x Blightbreath
1x Soulbroken Whelpling
0x Drudge Ghoul
0x Wicked Soul

Based on my runs, my friends' runs and the AH appearance,I would say that Snobold Runt, Creeping Tenracle and Drudge Ghoul (all from last bosses) have lower drop rates than other pets.
