The mailworm is here. And he's eating your mail for breakfast.
no comments yet on how to get them.. so.. when you do the visions in orgrimmar you have to right click the broken mailboxes that are around the map. it can spawn the rare mob and then its a 100% drop. :)
While in Horrific Visions, click mailboxes and hope Mail Muncher appears. You kill it (very easy 320k hp) and you loot mount from it, it doesnt appear in chests in the end as some sources says.
ps. edit: i got mount on 2nd mailbox opening so i can confirm this.
The addons HandyNotes and HandyNotes: Visions Of N'Zoth show all of the locations on both maps (Stormwind and Orgrimmar). And even other locations like toys.
I just got this mount on my 2nd attempt at it. There is a broken mail box usually near the Org AH it can spawn a blob NPC or the Mail Muncher rare. I am not sure of the other mailbox locations as I only cleared the valley of spirits and didnt have much time to investigate it completely but seems the 1st location is up consistently up for every horrific vision attempt so far.
I guess this is the reason for the mailbox issues of late!
An image with the mailboxes marked would be VERY helpful for everyone.
For everyone asking for map, the page of the mob has a map with pins in it displaying the location of mailboxes.
This mount should have a mailbox on it.
Finally got him, after 59 mailboxes. Definitely not as simple as I believed, after hearing multiple comments about how people got it on their 2nd, or 5th mailbox. An army of alts was definitely helpful, even on low geared alts you should be able to always get at least 2 mailboxes, with "correct" classes 3 are also perfectly doable.

After looting 5 mail boxes i got him so just keep trying and you will get him.
If I were to do this with a group would it drop for everyone or is this a one-player 100% drop?
A question. Is this mount personal only, or if it spawns, the whole 5 man party get the mount?
It's about a 2-5% spawn rate per mail box. I got mine from 7th or so mailbox while my my guildie got his after about 40 or so.
I just got this today. Not sure how many runs with several alts, something between 20 and 30, closer to 20 tho.
I was just running the Orgrimmar vision, and the 1st mailbox. Most of the spawns were the Mailelementals. Then the Mail Muncher spawned and dropped the mount on the 1st kill of its kind.
Happy, happy! This mount looks so .. alienly cool.
Sadly, this mount doesn't make you immune to the
flying around Vale and Uldum. Just saying this because of how both the
made you immune to the annoying
flying around Mechagon, I figured we could have something similar with these new worm mounts.
Got me by surprise, oh i can click that mailbox... "mail muncher spawns" ... oh.
So my first mailbox, took me only like close to 100 visions on 7 toons to figure the mailboxes.
Guess im slow but my rng is not.
I've 5-chested almost 10 visions now and done every mailbox in the vision, and i've yet to get this... What the hell is the drop rate?
how many different mobs are there? because I killed one that looked like it was called mail muncher or curupted mail muncher, nothing to loot and no mail of mount... didnt really hang around due to was working on getting pages for cloak 10 lol, it looked like a warlock tank pet with a purple ring around it though.
Mine dropped yesterday from the +12 insanity area. I love my creepy worm so much! I believe it was less than 30 mailboxes total over the last few weeks.
Got this today after my 4th run looking for the mail boxes to open then the rare appeared from the one outside the SW Bank good to know that if your in a group of 5 you all can loot it! :)
I am starting to think Blizzard has a mount farmer detection system and gives lower drop rates the more mounts a person has because then they know you will stay subscribed to keep on farming. I am closing in on 6k attempts on Sha of Anger and Nalaks mounts, Nearly 700 attempts to date on the love rocket, I am at about 90 attempts on the mail muncher. Sadly on my main I did like 10 runs not even knowing about the mail boxes. So I got my army of 26 alts all cloaked up and ready to go since you get like 3 attempts right off the bat. My main can hit up all the mail boxes but my alts only managed about 2-3
Just got it today. That makes 502 mounts. As rarity doesnt track it I cant give the exact number so Im going based off Vessel of Horrific Visions count as doing the opening chain to unlock the visions you will get 3 to start with. Some characters I managed to get 3 mail boxes per run but I will count each one as 2 for a low end estimate and 2.5 for a higher estimate. 132-165 attempts. The mount actually came off the corpse of the mob some stuff I had seen suggested it would be in the cache at the end or mailed as mobs dont have loot in the vision but that doesnt seem to be the case for this. Not that this matters I'm sure its all RNG but dwarven district mailbox
Probably going to receive a lot of hate but...I'm very casual at this. Lvl 7 cloak. I've hit like 4 boxes in Stormwind, and doing Orgrimmar first time today I opened my 7th box total and Mail Muncher spawned and dropped the mount. Yay for being lucky for once!
got him after around 350 mail box openings....
got it today in a 5 main stromwind vision. was in the dwarven district. both me and 1 other person attacking it got it (not sure if the other 3 had it already or didnt see me say it was up)
so thx god i dont need to waste my time opening all the mail boxes now, lol
This mount's model is based around a cloud serpent. I can tell not just because of the movements and /mountspecial but because one of its idle animations is to scratch itself... with one of the legs it doesn't have. If you're wondering why your mail muncher has the occasional weird twitch, that's why.
Post without rhythm, it won't attract the worm.
Everyone I see have this mount and now I can finally say that I have it too, it only took me 508 attempts...
Is there any point to mailboxes other than this mount?
If people like the model but don't care about the color, this one is just a recolor of the
Black Serpent Of N'Zoth
which you get from
achievement. Which can be done in a group and is easier than it sounds after you get a level 15 cloak.
Received this mount after doing quite a few vision runs and looting every mailbox I could. Ended up dropping for me in mage district on my first visions run with a mask.
Drop rate is 2-5% unless your name is asmongold.
i love my untainted wormli <3
Over 50 clears with all 5 mailboxes in both org and SW, 24 straight runs just farming mailboxes until I ran out of my excess cache of Coalescing Visions. I've gotten it down to under 9 minutes a run. No mount. WTF. The RNG is just ridiculous. That I should have to waste time farming this mount when I'm basically done with visions for the Xpac is just dumb. Blizz has shown they have the ability to bring the odds up to a 100% drop after X amount of times with the BFA rep rewards' essences, why not apply that algorithm to things like this? Grrr.
Worth noting there is one mailbox in each sector
does it have to be 5 mask vision or just a normal no mask run?
I got it on my Warlock from the mailbox in the Dwarven District.
I'm just here to bust some myths. I did the following today:
Bought 37 Vessels of Horrific Visions (I'd been saving the currency for quite a while).
Entered the Horrific Vision of Stormwind (no masks) and cleared the mobs all the way to the first mailbox in the starting area.
I clicked the mailbox and if it wasn't the Mail Muncher, I didn't even bother to kill the NPC that spawned, just right-clicked my portrait and left the instance group.
Repeated this 26 times (I've got 11 vessels left now).
At my 26th try, the Mail Muncher spawned. I killed it, looted the mount and left the instance.
So my Sunday morning is the evidence that:
it does spawn by clicking the very first mailbox of the vision (in the starting area)
no need to kill any bosses or specific NPC's
no masks needed
drops in solo mode
I consider myself unlucky compared to other commenters that have received the mount because along with my farming spree today it has taken more than 50 vision runs altogether since the patch dropped and during many of my earlier runs I also opened all five mailboxes so today I ended up with at least 100 mailbox-openings, but the mount did drop eventually!
I made it to rank 7 on my cloak before learning about this mount. I went into the vision of stormwind with no masks, opened the first mailbox in the main area and got a slime. I cleared out a low level area and figured I had extra time to search for a mailbox there. On opening my second mailbox ever I had Mailmuncher spawn.
Today I crossed a milestone. It has been 400 mailboxes without the mount.
Comments say it has 2-5% chance to spawn. That makes sense, everyone in my guild got it before 100 attempts. At 2%, the chance of not seeing it after 400 attempts is 0.03%. I'm scared to calculate the probability at 5%.
At least I don't have to run 5 masks anymore. All my gear is socketed and I bought the 100k mementoes mount months ago.
Maybe I can get it before 500 attempts. That would be so nice.
He actually got it.
Got mine today. Stormwind horrific vision. No masks up with a friend. 2man group, mailbox in Dwarven district, (2nd mailbox clicked) and still had plenty of time to finish the vision with all bosses down. My cloak was max rank, friend's cloak was R9. Best of luck, and may RNGesus bless you.
Got this yesterday. If they let us name mounts, mine would be named after my current superior, Louis DeJoy.
My husband and I got the mount after running 4 visions in a row, no masks. He wasn't even rank 15 yet. It's definitely very random. Good luck all!
is it weird that the rare spawned for me TWICE in the same vision after about 40-50 attempts?
After 200 attempts it became personal.
EDIT: I actually got it. Farmed vessels for couple weeks, and after additional 55 attempts i got it... Keep trying guys!
65 attempts, dropped from the last mailbox in SW.
Finally got it after 677 attemps... Never give up!
I got mine on the first try today, spawned from the mail box in Old Town. He popped when I was at less then 10% sanity bursted him down killed quick looted with 1% sanity got mount then my run was over. Fun time's :)
Got at attempt 31! Just in time for prepatch to hopefully happen.
I was running out of vessels... I was doing some pvp for vicious saddle and gathered echoes for 3 vessels ( too bored to do the invasions after so many months..) I was 133 attempts... At my last vessel and 147 try and last mailbox, I shouted out loud " For the love of god just drop" and mail muncher appeared . . ....Best moment of 2020 :')
For those still trying, I finally got it tonight, have been trying as long as this has been available, I had no masks on, first mailbox in Org. Thank god that's over. GL to all.
Just got this and doing 4-8 visions a week so thats about 20-40 Mailboxes per week and been doing it for 5 months so, yea about 1400 mailboxes something low counted, would be cool if u could see statistics somewhere on mailboxes killed, never give up guys!
Got the record, 245 attempts for me
605 postboxes opened, but I got it.
Just wanted to echo what @Lljor stated is still true as of patch 9.0.5:
Cloak rank does not matter.
No masks need to be found/activated.
Zero mobs need to be killed for it to spawn.
Can spawn from the starting zone mailbox.
Works in solo mode.
As of 9.0.5 in Shadowlands, I just spammed the process they mentioned:
Started up the Horrific Vision with zero masks
Ran past all mobs straight to the mailbox (Stormwind in my case)
Spawned mailbox mob
Immediately "Left Instance Group" if it wasn't the mount, not even bothering to kill the false mob
Rinse and repeat
All in all I got
lucky, and it dropped on my 37th attempt with only the latter 20 of those being with this method. I know some folks are well into the hundreds, and some even claim over 1000 attempts and still no luck. The only real problem with this method is that it can chew through
fairly quickly. The real question would be can you farm
faster than you can run to the other 4 mailboxes? There are decent farming guides out there, be sure to check them out. Good luck folks!
Got it today on my second vision on third mail box, guess ı am very lucky :) and u dont need 5 mask or anything else its just rng as always!
210 Attempts...But it happened. Keep at it errbody. It's still in those visions.
750 times, still no mount, what a joke
