Professor Greyrose nudged me to take a look at the following comment from the Wizard101.com forums:
It seems many young Wizards are diligently looking for the new Winged Mounts on the high level bosses of the Spiral.
We've just discovered that they're not dropping at a high enough rate, and we will be adjusting this rate in the future.
Until then, give the poor bosses a break and continue with your adventures in the Spiral. We will let you know when the drop rate has been reset.
You can see that from following this link here.
Good advice from our Community Manager. The drop rate on the wings is too low. It will be adjusted. (Note that all the other items are dropping just fine . . . it's the wings that need adjusting.)
On a side note, I have to say there was some interesting discussion going on in the previous post. Just remember that KI is trying to make things right (and I highly doubt a lot of people will be banned from this one exploit . . . it's the repeat offenders that should be worried). I also want to remind everyone that the bugs in this game are still really minuscule when you take a look at the big picture, yo. Wizard101 is a solid product that's a blast to play. Don't forget that! k? K!
I will be making another post here in the near future to address some of the comments that cropped up in that previous post . . . in the meantime, RELAX. Enjoy the game. Stop hunting for wings until the drop rate is adjusted, and be awesome like you always are. ya? ya!
