Aeonaxx probably since so many trying to get it and the fact you can farm mobs all around at same time have "_NPCscan" for it and in a close area, not as big as Storm Peak is.
I've tried several months now sporadic be there in the morning very early and i've seen all other rares probably 5+ times by now but never Aeonaxx or Bloodseeker which they say will spawn 6 hours before Aeonaxx will... still trying :)

I think Aeonaxx is harder to get; because lots of people are in Deepholm for many reasons while the Storm Peaks is now pretty much abandoned. You see some guy leveling or some hunter camping Skoll from time to time, but that's it.

Heh i got both on my main within 2days.

1st Day : Aeonaxx - NPCScan Alerted on alt ,Switched to main quickly ,and collected him.
2nd Day (day after) : Was bored in Dala ,and after i got Aeonaxx ,it come to my mind : hmm let's go around Storm Peaks a little ,and Bam there he was : Time-Lost Proto.

Never camped those ,but yea it took 2years before i finally spotted them & got 1st to kill...

TLPD - took me around 120h of camping Frozen Lake.
I also tried to get it for my husband - I got it 3 hours after I decided to camp it...

Aeonaxx - few hours camping, maybe 8 in total.

I would go for Aeonaxx as his Flight Path is confined to a much smaller area hence you are far more likely to "accidentally bump in to him" whereas the Time Lost Proto-Drake has a massive Flight Path hence someone can always be far closer to him than you.
With Aeonaxx it would be more about reaction time and beating the other player to the chase.
Aeonaxx is less likely to spawn though.

Draugarth, are you sure about that? TLPD is afterall a rare spawn of a rare spawn sharing it's place with another rare that's far more likely to spawn then it.

And Aeonaxx shares a Spawn Timer with a Level 15 Rare Bat that is only at its location for 2 to 3 seconds before disappearing. It has a 90% chance to spawn over Aeonaxx.

I got 5 Aeonaxx mounts...I stopped farming him when I started suffering from lack of sanity, sleep and hair. I think Aeonaxx is more difficult because he doesn't fly around the temple.
He flies in a tight circle on the spawn point (there are 6 spawn points).

Timless will eventually fly past where u camping. Last time I farmed Aeonaxx, it looked like a bloody airport. About 4 people per spawn point -.-

My first week of camping is over, and I've gone crazy. No Aeonaxx (that I got), no Blood Seeker, nothing..

I'm gonna keep at it. I logged out for a bit within that week, so I'd be real annoyed if some random player got to it before me.

On Tuesday morning some level 82 troll beat me to it, and died. :L GAAH!

Found TLPD after months of farming. Flutter of excitement when my NPC_scan went off. I threw down my book, moved to the computer and begun searching the screen for him. I inched my way towards him, trying to get into range so I could tag him, fall to the ground and proceed to fight him, safe in the knowledge I had the kill and the mount.

Leveling Warlock tags him just before I do. He has no knowledge of the importance of this mob and neither does he even have the flying skill to make use of the item it drops.

Pretty sure I cried for 2-3 days after and have yet to return to Storm Peaks.

Wish I was as lucky as you! Aeonaxx will, honestly, be the death of me.

Just wanting to add my experience of farming both. Depending on how much time you plan to invest per day and how much dedication to plan to put in, when i farmed the TLPD it was just after cata release, now although there weren't as many farmers as before there was still competition so i decided the best way for me to get this mount personally would be to become nocturnal i discovered that between 2am-8am on my server barely anyone was on, occasionally i would see people in the area but they went after 10-20minutes i had no competition for either mounts and aoenaxx actually spawned quicker than TLPD for me but i think it was luck. Either one is going to take a good amount of your time, which ever one you choose make sure you are prepared to wait it out. good luck! :)
