In the latest phase of WoW Classic’s Season of Discovery, mount collectors have reason to celebrate as the rarest mount in WoW history has been confirmed to drop from the final boss of the Gnomeregan raid.

This highly coveted mount, known as the Fluorescent Green Mechanostrider, has stirred up excitement among players eager to add this unique piece to their collections.

Unveiling the Rarity

Wowhead, the authority on all things WoW, reports that the Fluorescent Green Mechanostrider now boasts a four percent chance to drop from Mekgineer Thermaplugg, the formidable final boss of the Gnomeregan raid.

Players have already begun sharing their success stories, with reports of lucky drops surfacing as early as Feb. 11, shortly after the launch of WoW Classic Season of Discovery phase two.

A Legendary Tale

The origins of the Fluorescent Green Mechanostrider trace back to a legendary tale that spans over 17 years in WoW history. Initially owned by a single player named Narshe on Frostmane-EU, this mount’s journey began when Narshe mistakenly deleted their Mechanostrider mount shortly after The Burning Crusade expansion launched.

In an unprecedented move, Blizzard intervened and granted Narshe a never-before-seen mount as compensation, thus birthing the legendary Fluorescent Green Mechanostrider.

A Vibrant Rarity

Distinguished by its vibrant green hue, the Fluorescent Green Mechanostrider stands out as a unique addition to the Gnome mount collection. Its eye-catching color palette sets it apart from conventional Gnome mounts, making it a coveted prize for collectors seeking to diversify their stables.

Resurrection in Season of Discovery

For years, the Fluorescent Green Mechanostrider lay dormant in the depths of the game files, awaiting its moment to shine once again. With the arrival of Season of Discovery, this elusive mount has resurfaced, becoming a focal point of the Gnomeregan raid’s loot table.

Mekgineer Thermaplugg now holds the key to unlocking this piece of WoW history, offering players a chance to obtain a mount that has remained dormant for far too long.

A New Era of Mount Collecting

As news of the Fluorescent Green Mechanostrider’s return spreads, players across Azeroth are seizing the opportunity to embark on the quest for this rare treasure. Though initially available as a bind-on-equip item, Blizzard swiftly transitioned it to bind-on-pickup, ensuring that its value remains intact and accessible only to those who brave the depths of Gnomeregan.
