How to get the X-45 Heartbreaker mount in World of Warcraft

The heartbreak just got easier.

World of Warcraft players have the opportunity to get their hands on the X-45 Heartbreaker mount as part of the annual Love is in the Air event. This Valentine's Day event runs from February 6 to February 20 and will come with a daily opportunity to get the month.

Unlike the Swift Lovebird mount, the X-45 Heartbreaker is far rarer to find, as it's available as a drop from the event-specific Shadowfang Keep dungeon. Players will queue into this dungeon during the duration of the event through the Dungeon Finder, and they'll have a chance to get the drop once per day.

The X-45 Heartbreaker mount has a chance of appearing from the Heart-Shaped Box that Apothecary Hummel, the boss of this version of Shadowfang Keep, drops. This has notoriously been one of the rarest mounts in the game, but Blizzard is alleviating some of that grind this time around.

How rare is the X-45 Heartbreaker mount in WoW?

As it stands currently, the Heartbreaker is one of the rarest mounts in the game, thanks to its abysmal drop rate. This time around, the first Heart-Shaped Box drop each day will contain a much greater chance to earn the mount, but every subsequent drop that day across various alt characters will go back to the original chance. This doesn't guarantee everyone will get the mount they want it, but it'll make things easier.

Blizzard has done this with hard-to-obtain mounts before with the Sha of Anger being easier to get now, and previous TCG-exclusive items like the Feldrake were given away for free. The X-45 likely won't become as common as those, as it's only available for a limited time each year, but it'll certainly been seen a lot more in the wild.
