World of Warcraft gamer finally finds his rare mount after four years of trying

Twitch streamer Bingo1 was a happy gamer indeed earlier this week when he discovered, an item required to summon the Invincible mount in World of Warcraft, after more than four years of trying.

Twitch streamer Bingo1 caught the moment they snagged Invincible's Reins - the item required to summon the iconic Invincible mount - from the heroic version of the Icecrown Citadel raid on stream, and it’s just as loud as you might expect. As you’ll see in the clip below, the WoW fan slowly creeps toward the reward chest in relative silence before leaping from their chair and gleefully shouting in celebration – if you’re a headphone user, take that as a sound warning if you watch the clip.

Mounts are already some of the most desirable items you can find in World of Warcraft, but Invincible is a particularly sought-after example. The flying mount - once the steed of Lich King Arthas himself - was an early example of a particularly exclusive mount. During WoW's Wrath of the Lich King era, acquiring it meant having taken on one of its toughest raids and come out on top, labeling you among the best players in the game.

If you fancy getting this one, you’ll need to complete a 25-player raid called the Icecrown Citadel, one of the final encounters of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, on Heroic difficulty. While level creep means that's no longer the ordeal it might have been in 2009, the raid can only be completed once per week per character. Add a 1% drop rate, and we're talking about low odds.

It's also worth noting that Bingo1 has been pretty unlucky. It's been around 200 weeks since Battle for Azeroth launched in August 2018, so assuming they've hit most of those weekly raiding opportunities, you would have thought they might have it long before now.

World of Warcraft has one other growth on the way which later this year was referred to as Dragonflight and it appears very thrilling.
