WoW Fast Guide to Farming Mounts – Step by Step Walkthrough

Hey guys thanks for checking out my video Today we are going to guide you through How to use raid lockouts to farm mounts that have not dropped for you and you are sick of running through the dungeon completely or the raid completely just to get to the one boss that drops the mount This will save you a lot of time, I know raids like ICC or Ulduar can take 35 to 50 minutes just to get through, to get to the one boss and its pretty dissapointing when it doesn’t drop this should save you a lot of time and cut your runs to 5 or 10 minutes per alt that you want to run it through the first thing you want to do Make sure you have a character with your lockouts saved so for example we’re going to be on my priest right now I usually use a healer to hold my lockouts because they are not the most convient characters to run through and just for time savings sake It seems to be better to run with a DPS just even for killing the old bosses So I keep them all on my disc priest and we’re going to bring up my raid lockouts to show you so here you’ll see we have My raid lockouts, I have Ulduar saved to Yogg Saron ICC saved to Lich King on 25 man heroic and Mogu’shan Vaults saved to Elegon Every week when it resets you can down here to this button and hit the extend raid lock What that does that will keep your save where you left out If you dont know how to get these saves, on this character where you want these lockouts on You’ll run it through one time and you’ll get to the boss you want to save it to and you make sure you dont kill that boss, so when you get to Yogg Saron in Ulduar for example you will just Hearth out and leave the raid where it is same with ICC you’ll run it in 25m heroic all the way through get to the Lich King and just leave So after you get the save you can pass it to other characters or friends if you feel like a nice guy I know a lot of people sell them in trade chat, thier lockouts to help people farm as well so once you get your lockout first thing you want to do is go on the character you want to farm with you got all your alts here and you’re deciding who you want to run on first, it doesnt really matter so we’re going to go on my mage here because hes parked in Dalaran so we’re going to log on to him ok we’re here in dalaran what you’ll need for this part is you can use a second account, I even believe you can create a starter account and probably have to level a character to 10 or 15 so you can change the raid difficulty once you get there what you’ll want to do, we’re going to bring up a second box here with an account I already have there we are what you’ll want to do is go on this other account and invite this character that you want to run with, so I’m going to invite my mage to a group now my mage is in the group we are going to log out of the character we want to run with and head onto the character with the lockout, so we’re going to log back into my priest here once we’re logged in, we can go back on the other account and I usually just have another WoW just alt tabbed in even if you don’t have the best computer you should be ok To alt tab just to get them in the group, as you see we’re doing here, we’re going to invite my priest into the group so now that my priest is in the group, what you want to do is pass the party leader to the priest or whichever character has the lockout, in this instance it is my priest and with the alternate account, we can leave the party leaving the priest and the character you want to run with after that you can close the account, you won’t need again until you want to start another run So we’re going to use ICC today as an example what you’ll want to do, now that we are in a group with the character we want to run with and that character with the lockout, We’re going to go to… right click on our portrait, go to raid difficulty, make sure its on 25 player, which it is and we’re going to put it on Heroic then we’re going to put it back to normal, and what that does is reset the instances, ICC can be.. finnicky, you dont want it to think its in heroic, you dont want to get the heroic save, it can glitch out and think that it has already been killed, especially on your 2nd or 3rd run of the week so now that we did that and we have it reset, we can switch back to our running character so switch over, and we’re going to log into our mage here so now that is the character we’re going to run with so we’re going to go ahead and mount up and we’re going to start flying to ICC a little side not while we’re flying over there the trick pretty much works with every raid the only one that i can be tricky with… Dragon Soul doesnt work at all The only one it can be tricky with is ICC, it can be weird if you don’t do everything correctly the lockout can kind of bug out you need to make sure you reset it everytime you go to a different character Dragon Soul doesn’t work at all, unfortunately when they switched the lock outs from Lich King to Cataclysm you can not save it and pass it to another character, Dragon soul is one that you’ll have to beef out and pound through and hope for the best This should save a lot of time with your runs especially ICC and Ulduar as those can take up to an hour sometimes to clear so now that we’re at ICC we’re going to go ahead and enter OK, so a little pop comes up here and says “You’ve Entered and Instance Already in Progress.. If a Boss is killed you’ll be saved to ICC 25 player As you can see it doesn’t say heroic, it says normal because we have it set that way and that’s how we want it to be we’re going to accept this if you look here at my portrait I’m not the party leader yet It should pop up here in 30 seconds or a minute, it isnt much after, you can actually start heading up to the Lich King So we’re going to start doing that, start making our way up Ok, I just got a popup here that says I am the group leader now So now that I’m group leader, we’re sitting in front of the portal to Lich King We’re going to go down to raid difficulty under our character portrait and we’re going to switch it over to heroic OK, now a new pop up comes up that says you’ve entered and instance already in progress you’ll be saved to Ice Crown Citadel 25 heroic and if you highlight over it you’ll see that Lich King is available so you’ll want to accept that Ok so now we are saved to the Lich King, so we’re going to stand on this portal and come up to the Lich King and we’re going to start the fight and these are the only things you should have to sit through with running, unfortunately the lore and the talking between characters, not really a way to skip around that we are going to go through and get this kill OK, so you killed the Lich King A little Visual is going to pop up any second, we’ll wait for that to pop up then we’ll loot so here comes the visual, cancel that, we’re going to click the Lich King, and per usual he didnt drop the mount that we wanted Not a problem, we’re just going to run it on a different character , and this is where you will log off and do the same process we went over the big thing to make sure you do, like I said, when you log onto the character with the Lockout and you have the runner in your group you want to go down to raid difficulty and make sure its on normal, but you want to switch it to heroic once and back to normal to make sure that the raid resets because somtimes the Lich King bugs out I don’t really have that problem with any other raids Hopefully my guide helps, hopefully you guys get the mount faster than I have I have 304 and I’m still hunting for ICC, for invincible Good luck everyone, like and subscribe for more videos coming daily thanks for stopping by good luck!

    There's an easier way than this. You log into character with the lock-out – make a pre-made group in the group finder – log off – log onto character you want to run the raid with, sign up to the group in the group finder – relog to the lock-out character, accept invite – voila.

    I'm almost sure you don't need a second account for that. You can create a group and set it on group finder. Logout and login on your alt and join. You can even leave the auto-invite on, so you don't have to log back to your "healer". After a few seconds your alt will become the raid leader, so you can remove auto-join to avoid realm hoppers.

    I have a bunch of accounts and characters saved to multiple specific bosses in several raids. I thinks it's easier to save them on a second account rather than a second character on your main account. That logging back and forth is weird and also what would you do to change the raid from normal to Heroic in the case of throne of Thunder animos or whatever? You can't do that with this method.
