The argument isn't if it exists or not, more so that it does not drop very often.

It surely doesn't drop very often. However, I still remember that posting:

Someone I raid with claims it dropped in HM for them on Tanks.
So, the answere is clearly yes. Having it dropping a year ago was no evidence for it still dropping. You probably considered this question as answered on positively before, but I'd suggest to be careful regarding some stealth-changes in swtor that have been noticed long after they've been done.

In general I can't say much more then I already did: You just have to do this content more often to have the rare items dropping. One of our raidmembers always came with his main character when we did Denova in the last few months and he was rewarded a few days ago.
However, I'd support a proposal for an increased dropchance for the Heavy Avalance Tank towards Titan 6 and Hyperpod-Levels as long as we don't enter 2.x and 3.x conditions again.

To be fair, these mounts have been in game for a long time. If they were to increase the drop rate a little bit, it would be a nice change of pace. The last time I saw the hyperpod drop was in 2.0; right around Dread Fortress nim release
Never could DPS anyway, so I tried Sentinel Tanking

the drop chances are fine.. those mounts are rare and people want them because they are rare (exception hyperpod, because its awesome).......
who would want a titan 6 containment vehicle when its a safe drop?
styrak, denova and terror are not that difficult, that the mounts should be a safe drop.
if you havent seen those mounts for a long time it just means rngeesus hates you.

example hyperpod:
everybody in my raid team has got it once, but we have one vanguard dps who wants it but when hes there with his main it just wont drop (Lennart :P)
.
we are chasing that thing for like 3 months now.
3 weeks ago we got a new member to our team, he wanted the hyperpod and it took us 2 tries for him.

I've seen *one* tank drop in *hundreds* of runs of EC NIM.

With that drop rate, it's entirely possible I could be waiting years for it to drop again or even years to win it myself. That's not reasonable. No item in the game should be that rare, to the point of having next to zero chance of ever obtaining the mount.

It's also not as simple as "Do the operation every week" - despite 5 raid teams, of all the operations EC is the rarest for my groups to do.

There is no reason for any mount to be rare, when the most desirable NIM mount is a guaranteed drop.

I don't know what they have changed exactly to the drop rules of the avalance tank. they can now even drop in story mode (2 Players i can can confirm that have never stepped inside nim ec) but the drop chance seems to be very low, comparable to the red gree sphere
