How hard are you trying to get the X-45 Heartbreaker this year?
Love is in the Air in World of Warcraft right now. This means that there are lots of fun pink transmogs to collect from the Trading Post and a whole brand new set of love-related things to collect. It also means that the X-45 Heartbreaker is available again for players to try and get from the nefarious alchemists of the Crown Chemical Company.
The X-45 Heartbreaker is infamous in Warcraft for being one of the rarest mounts in the game. Since it has such a low drop chance and is only obtainable for two weeks around Valentine’s Day — this means that some players will go to extreme lengths in order to get it. I’ve seen players run every character that they have through the Crown Chemical encounter daily for their shot at getting the rocket.
This obviously is a bit excessive, and even the developers on the Warcraft team thought so, as last year they increased the odds of you getting the mount on your first kill of the day. Now that’s just an increased chance, you’re still not guaranteed to get it. Plus there is a new drake armor manuscript that gives your Proto-drake a nice set of purple armor with heart motifs on it. So there are still reasons to run the Crown Chemical encounter even if you’re one of the lucky ones who has the X-45 Heartbreaker already.
Personally, I’ve been running four characters through each day. The queue for the event comes up fast enough that it doesn’t feel like a big imposition to send that many through. I got the Winter’s Veil Drake armor on a 3rd kill of the day too so I’m feeling lucky this Love is in the Air.
How about you? Are you methodically tracking your characters on a spreadsheet and keeping a record of every loot that you get that isn’t the Heartbreaker? Or are you just running it once a day and if you get it, you get it.
