To get the Crab mount in Nazjatar you need to do the meta achiev there. And part of that meta achiev, is an achiev that takes 13 weeks to complete. “Periodic Destruction” is it called.

Blizzard; Why force us to wait 3 months to get this? Its just stupied. Its is just another way for you to time gate us. Time gating something to 3 months is too long.
Pls change this, everyone will be grateful.

Hey Tavea,

I see your point there, but I kind of have to disagree on this.

Of course, you can say that I’m a bit biased on this, but hear me out! There are plenty of things in the game, that require an amount of effort. The way I think of it, is if something is easy to get, then it will require time. On the other hand if something is hard to get, you might be able to get it sooner.

Getting this mount is not particularly difficult, it requires you to defeat an elite NPC, once a week. That is something that you should be able to easily get out of the way with minimal effort. Hence, at least in my view, the increased time that it requires.

Just to clarify, I’m not saying that the above is the way every mount or pet or toy drop is designed, that is just my take on this!

I’m happy to hear your and everyone else’s thoughts on this matter though! Please discuss!
