How I Farmed all Rare Mounts in WoW Within a Week [TLPD, Aeonaxx, VoidTalon etc]
#1
With this method, you can make an almost empty shard for yourself to camp or scout for these rare spawns.
I got all these mounts within a week since WoW is almost dead right now and people are waiting for 8.1.
I had a friend with me who also needed the mounts and having a friend helps, but is not necessary.
Below you can see my mounts favourite list in game with rare spawn mounts:
Great Greytusk (Gorok), Long-Forgotten Hippogryph, Mottled Meadowstomper (Luk'hok), Phosphorescent Stone Drake (Aeonaxx), Sapphire Riverbeast (Silthide), Subdued Seahorse (Poseidus), Sunhide Gronnling (Poundfist), Time-Lost Proto-Drake, Voidtalon of the Dark Star.

Update for 8.1:
Here are the changes for 8.1 patch, the method still works, for more mounts now than before.
Frightened Kodo is a new mount added in Darkshore that you can farm using trials.
Phosphorescent Stone Drake (Aeonaxx) acquisition has now been changed before a single person had to ride it and kill it, now it's killable in a party you can make an infinite party of 4 people with warlocks to tag using Deathbolt and everyone gets the loot. So get some friends to make trials on all RP realms, camp the spots and once you found it invite everyone to the shard, tag and loot!

We will be making Trial characters, but Blizzard has somewhat fixed most of the stuff you can farm with trials. With the introduction of CRZ + Sharding and Removal of cross zone server hops, it's more hard than before, but read on, I'll show you how to beat the system.

You can have 12 class trials per account and make 4 per hour. Class trials only are available for 3 hours of /played time. After you reached this, delete and remake the character
Class trials can only be used to find and loot select open-world rares including Camels, Voidtalon, Warbringers, Alani, LFH, and WoD Rares as well as Garrison Bosses.

Class trials cannot loot Poseidus, Aeonaxx, TLPD, or Huolon. They can, however, be used to phase over a non-trial character via the Premade Group Finder tool in-game so that you may successfully kill and loot the rare.

Being Smart about which Realms to make Class trials on

We will be making class trials on RP realms obviously because they are immune to sharding, but with only 12 trials on your account, you need to be smart about which realms you make them on. 
Some RP realms are connected with each other, I will give you a list below of all RP realms and realms connected to them use this info combined with the realm pop in the game and realmpop website to choose the best server to make trial on. 
Shards for warmode on and off are different, but I highly recommend warmode Off as default setting since most people on RP realms in those rare spawn zones are levelling and they prefer doing it with WM On.
Don't make 2 characters on 2 different realms that are connected.
Since I play on EU, I will Bold the servers I recommend from my experience where I found most rares to be up.

RP Realms on US Solo and Connected list:

WyrmrestAccord (dont make trial here, high pop rp realm)
MoonGuard (dont make trial here, high pop rp realm)
EarthenRing
ArgentDawn, TheScryers
BlackwaterRaiders, ShadowCouncil
Feathermoon, Scarlet Crusade
CenarionCircle , SistersofElune
Farstriders, SilverHand, ThoriumBrotherhood (dont make trial here, high pop rp realms)
KirinTor, Sentinels, SteamwheedleCartel
EmeraldDream (dont make trial here, high pop rp realm)
Ravenholdt, TwistingNether
Lightninghoof, Maelstrom, TheVentureCo.


RP Realms on EU Solo and Connected list:

English:
Moonglade, Steamwheedle Cartel , The Sha'tar
Darkmoon Faire, Earthern Ring
Argent Dawn
Defias Brotherhood, Ravenholdt, Scarshield Legion, Sporeggar, The Venture Co


German:
Die ewige Wacht, Die Silberne Hand
Todeswache, Zirkel des Cenarius
Der Mithrilorden, Der Rat von Dalaran
Die Nachtwache, Forscherliga
Die Aldor
Das Konsortium, Das Syndikat, Der Abyssische Rat, Die Arguswacht, Die Todeskrallen, Kult der Verdammten


French:
Confrérie du Thorium , Les Clairvoyants, Les Sentinelles
Kirin Tor
Conseil des Ombres, Culte de la Rive noire, La Croisade écarlate


I have bolded 7 RP realms for EU where I would recommend making a trial character, if you have a friend(s) with you, you could cover every single one of them. 

With that info out of the way, some of my tips are as follows:
  • I recommend making the trial character as Mages, submitting the BfA start quest and accepting + skipping the scenario quest gives you enough gold to buy portal to old Dalaran. You can go deepholm and grind mobs to afford the stormshield portal as well.
  • I was the most unlucky with TLPD, I killed 21 Vyragosa before TLPD spawned for me, by the 21st kill I managed to get the timer down to a T. Basically after the server reset, every 6 hours take around using your trial characters using Zygor's recommended tlpd path, or use some of the paths found online (just Google em). Yes, I killed 21 Vyragosa in a single week!
  • Shards for Warmode on and off are different, I highly recommend warmode off.
  • In the above list of mounts, you can't loot with trials, having a friend helps. When you find the rare, invite your friend make him the party leader and logoff, he tags it you log on come with your main and join the party and you tag it and loot.
  • Warlock's Deathbolt talent and Foxicopter Toy are the only two things that can safely tag without killing all other toys that used to work no longer do after 8.0.1.
  • Having a mage friend who can port your trials to draenor is helpful, if you don't have a mage friend, you can log in to your main server and note down the names of all mages online in stormwind/orgrimmar, log in to your trial char and whisper them (w/charactername-realm) and ask them politely to make a portal for stormshield draenor.
  • If you have zero friends who want to camp TLPD with you, here's how you zone your main character in once you find TLPD with your trial. Follow the steps very carefully:

This method isn't just confined to farming mounts, you can use a trial character to phase in your main character to an empty shard. Use your imagination what can you do if you had an empty zone all for yourself? Here are some things I've done:

If you have any more tips that you could do in an empty zone, I'd love to hear them!
If You've found the mount you wanted for so long using this method, please edit your comment and mention it, I'll try to include them below, helping you guys get the mounts is the reason I took the time to make this guide and seeing screenshots/your experiences makes it worth it!

I created my first trial on the first recommended RP realm on EU from this post, learnt mage dalaran portal and my heart skipped when I found tlpd just flying in front of me i woke my friend up from sleep called him waited for him to boot up the pc login get near me to tag so i can login from my main and tag. this took around 10 mins and every second my palms were sweaty from exitement and fear that someone will kill it and tlpd was still up noone killed him. coming from tarren mill server when i go ulduar i can see so many ppl camping tlpd spawn points and to just see him roaming around in rp realms is simple unbelievable! thank you again for this method, Ill try to get missing wod mounts as well
\firedisc' Comment #34 Wrote:Thanks I'll check this out!

Update I got Voidtalon mount!! I camped the portals back in draenor with a friend and got so jealous of him that he got it and I didn't back then and i finally got it I simply am lost for words. I made 5 trials and logged in every hour to check, got it within 6 hours I posted this comment to check the method.

amarysumbra\ Comment #76 Wrote:Can confirm this tactic worked! I managed to find the TLPD within the 1st 30 min. Sadly lost him but I did get him just a day later using this. HOWEVER, I cant seem to get this method to work for Aeonaxx. ;_; at least using cross realm assist just to show what realm im on, when i join my main I still remain on my original server. Anyone have any confirmed tactics that they've used that got them sharded into the realm they were grouping in on?

Aeonaxx spawn has been changed in 8.1, he can now be killed and tagged in a group. Just ask your guild or friends to help you camp in other RP realms and everyone zone in once you found him.

\KaseyStat' comment#155 Wrote:Thanks for answering my previous question, I have a few more if you are able to answer I would appreciate it

Sharding means the same thing as phasing? So basically RP servers have their own separate phases? or "Shards"

Meaning, this is only possible on the RP realms I am surprised the RP realms are not all connected in some way my server is "connceted" with one other server but I often see other people in my same phase, meaning we are sharing rares etc... I don't quite understand how that all work but am very interested to know.

Since there is only 8 recommended realms to create characters on would it not be worth it to create duplicate characters to farm different things on the same server, possibly with warmode on some?

The server reset for Void Talon is that daily or weekly reset?
Did you mainly look for rares only after server resets or was that only for Void Talon?
Did you mainly farm one rare with all your trials?
For TLPD if you could link the guide/route you used if it's any better than the 4 standard circle paths I can find on google I just wonder which direction he flys and how high he flys, on the paths i've looked for this information but mostly people just tell you the spawn points which in this case he is most likely flying around unless this has become that popular already - unfortunately poundfist still eludes me even with this trick at 3-6am when it's most dead not sure if i'm just unlucky or what I thought he would surely be easy to find as these servers are insanely inactive.  I'm sure it's just a matter of time though.

Thank you for this guide and your time
Also I just got Poundfist the last rare I needed besides Void Talon about 15 mins ago, thanks to you and this guide thanks so much!!!  Heart

I have separated the RP servers in my list by commas, RP servers in a single line have a single shard of war mode on and off
For example in my list of EU realms Moonglade, Steamwheedle Cartel, The Sha'tar - this implies the 3 realms all share a single shard for warmode on and a different shard for warmode off.

Weekly reset
The example is only for voidtalon, other rares also have a respawn timer that resets after weekly reset, for example tlpd has a 2-8 hour timer shared by vyragosa to spawn after weekly reset.
Check youtube for spawn points and the videos made for them, TLPD flys in varying heights depending on where he spawns. Uldir spawn is quite high. Below the temple of storms is where I just left a character at medium height, 3 spawn routes connect there. TLPD roams very slowly.

WoD rares like nakk the thunderer and poundfist were really a pain in the butt for me to get. They have some insane spawn timer when one is killed + people mostly level in gorgrond because of the XP buff, so it's always killed even on RP realms.
