Attumen the Huntsman drops one of the coveted rare mounts: his horse, Midnight. Fortunately for hunters seeking this mount, Attumen is very easy to solo, and is located right at the beginning of Karazhan.

I used a turtle for this, but that proved unnecessary. I never used shell shield or cower. I recommend a bear or croc to speed things up a bit.
Clear out all the trash mobs in the area. Pull Midnight. Attumen will dismount almost at once (95% health). At this point you can dps whichever one you’d like — I went for Attumen just because I already knew that my pet had good threat on Midnight so I wanted to swap him to Attumen to build up threat there.
Every now and then Attumen will give you a debuff that reduces your hit chance by 50%. No big deal and it only lasts 10 sec, but that’s why you’ll see misses. Continue to single target dps whichever one you want until they get to 25% health. Once either Midnight or Attumen reaches 25%, Attumen will mount up again, wiping threat.
Let your pet get aggro, MD to him, and continue to dps. Mounted Attumen has a nasty charge – you can completely avoid this by being within 8 yards of him. Just stand at your minimum shooting range and you’ll be fine.
From here on out it’s a simple tank & spank. Good luck on getting your mount – it’s a 1% drop rate nowadays!
