Sandstone Drake mount should be the most expensive mount in World of Warcraft now! It costs tens of thousands of gold and even you got the gold, you need to find some alchemists who could make it!
Here I will give you a brief guide about How to get Sandstone Drake:
Firstly I gotta notice you guys that everyone could have Sandstone Drake, not only Alchemists!
is taught by Vial of the Sands
You will need:
a. Recipe: Vial of the Sands
b. Pyrium-Laced Crystalline Vial, Sands of Time (8), Truegold (12), Flask of the Winds (8), Flask of Titanic Strength (8), Deepstone Oil (8)
Pyrium-Laced Crystalline Vial 5,000G + Sands of Time 3,000G*8 = 29,000G Bought from Yasmin in Uldum.
Truegold is created by Alchemy, which costs about 2000*12 =24000G (I searched the AH price of my server. You need 3 Pyrium Bars, 10 Volatile Fire, 10 Volatile Air and 10 Volatile Water for each Truegold)
And the rest materials are all created by Alchemy!
Generally the whole cost of A Sandstone Drake will be about 60,000G
Note: Here I got an idea but I haven't tried it yet! We could creat a Goblin and use that Goblin to buy Pyrium-Laced Crystalline Vial and Sands of Time! Because of Goblin's racial talent, you will save 29,000G*20%=5,800G
By collecting Archaeology Tol'vir artifacts you will get the item Canopic Jar
! You have a small chance to get the Recipe by opening the Canopic Jar! (My friends said that if you have 450+ Alchemy skill, you have a great chance to get the recipe! But that's not confirmed! )
Tip: The Tol'vir artifacts usually appear in the southern part of the map!
Now you got the recipe and the materials, you could go find the Alchemist! lol! Wish you good luck!
