World of Warcraft’s rare Valentine’s Day Event Mount is now easier to earn

With the release of Love is in the Air, Blizzard has increased the X-45 Heartbreaker drop rate for the first clear each day. Prior to this modification, the likelihood of obtaining the X-45 Heartbreaker was expected to be around.03% each dungeon run, according to Wowhead statistics.

We’ve heard your feedback on the frustrations with X-45 Heartbreaker’s low drop rate and feeling the pressure of having to farm the mount by cycling through as many alts as possible every day. From now on, the first Heart-Shaped Box you receive each day across your account will have a greatly increased chance to contain the X-45 Heartbreaker mount.

Any subsequent Heart-Shaped Boxes you earn on your characters after the first each day will drop the mount at the previous, original rate.

Love is in the Air begins on February 6 at 10:00 a.m. PST in all regions. So spritz on your favorite perfume and head to the Shadowfang Keep event dungeon to defeat Apothecary Hummel for your chance at the fantastic flying fuschia fuselage you’ve fancied far too fervently for what seems like forever.

Good luck adventurers!


The “Big Love Rocket,” is one of the most rarest mounts in World of Warcraft. Players will be able to queue for a fight against the Apothecaries once the Love is in the Air event is online, which will be between February 6 and February 20. Defeating them grants you a Heart-Shaped Box with the possibility of dropping the mount.
