Dropped from Kael'thas for Method-Sylvanas. World first drop on May 31, 2007!
Read about this mount of the web the first ever phoenix mount was given away to Ezra Chatterton, the young man who recently went to Blizzard's offices with the Make-A-Wish foundation. Ezra was given the first ever Phoenix mount in game for two reasons. First, it was probably the best gift that Blizzard could really give any gamer as far as one of the new Outland mounts. Netherdrakes are awesome, but a phoenix trumps that, if you ask me! And hey, who wouldn't want a mount that could move at 310% speed like the Swift Nether Drake arena award mount. Secondly, as Ezra's father Micah explained to me, the phoenix is an extremely important personal symbol for Ezra.
Blizzard's armory lists this having 1-2% droprate. At 2%, any guild will get 1 Phoenix per year on AVERAGE if they clear The Eye every week. When it drops, you have to be the ONE lucky person from the 25-man raid to actually get it (or have the most dkp). In the end it all comes down to luck. Some guilds will get several and some will never get one.
Phoenix' speed is 410% running speed (310% flying speed). With Crusader aura you will go at 492% running speed.
Phoenix doesn't have visible legs and it will always be flying. In "rest" state on ground it will still flap it's wings. When "running" on the ground you will go at regular epic mount speed. Otherwise phoenix performs like any other flying mount and same rules apply.
Phoenix leaves several trails from it's wings and tail. When you go at 492% speed you leave quite a long trail behind you. You can make some pretty looking trail figures with some fancy flying.
Phoenix mount is the Ferrari of WoW mounts and a guaranteed attention magnet. It's funny seeing people going past you in a hurry, do a full stop, perform a quick 180 degree turn and come look at you.
Edit: Removed some outdated info.
Male troll riding Phoenix.
Female gnome riding Phoenix (me with transporter malfunction).
Additional information and more screenshots:
In the legend when a Phoenix dies it will burn to ashes and then reborn from them.
Well this is the "Ashes of Al´ar" so that must mean that you are flying on Al´ar himself!
Im curious to see what this looks like on the ground when you have the disgusting oozeling pet out. It leaves a green aura on your player sorta and turns your mount green. On my dreadstead it makes the flames look somewhat green.
Any shadowpriest have this mount?
i have seen other players with this mount before on Stormreaver, not hobbs though..... it is a 310% confirmed, but dosnt work on the ground.... oddly enough its normal(walking speed)......
its kinda odd though ive only seen 2 people with it, and after asking them about it, they said it droped nowhere near the instance. one said he even got one off a orc in the hellfire penusla!!!! my guess: the mount is one of those special drops, rarely appearing, or just put in for laughs by G gms
Why is Blizzard rewarding skill for PvP but only giving raiders/PvEers a RNG for the same speed mount?
Did Blizz really give this mount to a sick kid in partnership with MAW founation? That was really thoughtful of them!
This story behind this item is really funny. It was requested by someone for Make-A-Wish Foundation. If you don't know what that organization is they allow you to do almost anything in the world but it's only for terminally ill kids.
This dropped For Method it is real and drop from Kael'thas Sunstrider
Saw a character on Alliance side of Skullcrusher with this, so I took a pic and sent it in.
yeah, i looked on the item search on the armory, and it confirms that it drops from kael
Drops off Kael'thas in
, The Eye (<1%).
Makes sense as
("Pheonix God" makes a perfect pet for the "Sun King"), so it only goes to reason that he would have taken the ashes after Al'ar was killed.

Or from Al'ar?
The item, 'Ashes of Al'ar' is recored in Blizzard's loot table, so must be real:
The link i paste repeatedly causes an 'error' - nevertheless, the item is found in the Armoury under loot from Tempest Keep, 25-man raid.

just looked on the armory for atlas loot does not show up. also there is a mob named al'ar
Dropped on my server for a very nice guild, love them all. On Shu'halo. Grats to Holts! this is a very cool mount, leaves a trail of colors, pink and orange i believe. (+310% speed increase) =).
- I wanna shout out to Alehandria and Bodin!
Korlic <Method> of Sylvanas EU got it at May 31, 2007. World first drop I believe. It looks very sweet! it's 310% speed btw
Scroll down to Pheonix. Shows speed and where it drops.
I know of 2 having dropped for one guild on the Arygos server as of 2/5/08
Very cool mount, definitely stands out, way more then any nether drake. :p
My hubby recently won this mount on the US side (Argent Dawn). Does anyone know how many are in existence?, Especially on the US side?
Since there is no mentioning of "This mount can only be summoned in Outland" (I never saw it drop), I wonder if it can be used in the "old world"? I suppose not, but since they don't actually say it, I'd rather ask..^^
Here's me and my phoenix.
anyone know if this exists? or the drop rate?
This mount drops off of Kael'thas Sunstrider, the final boss of The Eye(25 man raid instance in Tempest Keep).
Tbh i think its drop rate is 0.01% very low
Dropped for us tonight... High Caliber on Kel'Thuzad server @ hcguild.org for pic on front page.
Tested it against gladiator mounts and checked the mount buff icon,
it IS 310% mount speed
, and does
drop off Kael Thas
, not Al'ar. The streams are about 100 yards long and look amazing in normal and shadowform(shadowpriest won it). I personally prefer how it looks in shadowform, it's a dark orange and purple streams and is amazing.
As far as size comparison goes, it is about half as long and half the wingspan of a netherdrake, but it sure does stand out.
AFAIK this is the 5th drop worldwide, and I was there to see it drop, and surprisingly it wasn't ninjad.
Just saw this tonight. Owned by a Dranei Shaman on Dalvengyr. After reading about it, never thought I'd see one on our very lowly populated server, guess I was wrong though. Very nice to see.
Dropped 02June2021 for me. It was my 16th attempt. Keep your chin up and do your weekly runs - the next run is the one!
Just got it after 94 attempts on Thunderlord!
Here is a link to a quick video on how to obtain this mount
Dropped 22.09.2021 On (tBC Classic)Zandalar Tribe - EU. For Alliance guild Tryheart on second raiding week and awarded to Taibe.
