Recently MMO champion has been doing these lists that show how common or uncommon particular mounts pets, and whatever else is for level 85 characters. Now they just did the lists, but I wanted to talk about them a bit. I would suggest you take a look at the lists before I start talking about them.

Pets: Click Here!!!!
So it shouldn't be a surprise that the most people mounts for level 85 characters is the Abyssal Seahorse since it is part of a quest chain in one of the starter zones. What should surprise you is that only just over 70% of level 85s have done enough of Vashj'ir to actually get it. The most common mounts there isn't really one that surprises me at all, and I think that is obvious since you see them all the time.
The Rare mounts on the other hand there is some surprises. Let's ignore the Darkmoon stuff because there has hardly been any chance at that. I knew the black AQ bug was rare, but I never would have guessed it would have been that rare. I guess this could be explained that characters with this mount may have never been leveled to 85, which to me would make more sense. Another mount that I am glad to see is the love rocket because compared to other holiday mounts this seemed to be completely non existant. So this proves it is not just my horrible luck.
On the topic of pets well I don't think mr chilly should be a surprise at all along with the pug since they are pretty much automatic. Once again the common pets are what you would expect since you know there are common and you see them all the time.
For the rare ones I actually was hopping some of the pets where the profits went to charity such as the cenarion hatchling and the moonkin hatchling would be higher. The big surprise in the rare list to me is the fox as it seems to be more rare than some extremely rare TCG pets. I guess those pet farmers complaining about the drop rate of this have a good argument.
I don't know about you, but when MMO-Champion does these lists it is always interesting for me to look at them. Trying to find out if I am in the normal group or outside the box or have found or using something not a lot of people have. That's just me though. I do know people will see these and change everything they do just to be like others or try and get one of the super rares. Just do me a favour and don't go mad.
