After a week of farming and a quick loan from a friend, I finally got my epic flying mount training/gryphon. However, while the gryphon is cool and all, I'd love to become a mount collector. After I pay back that little loan from a friend, I'll be free to spend my gold elsewhere. For instance, I'm going to be buying a Red Drake, as I've been exalted with Wyrmrest since November.
Thing is, I'd really like a proto-drake. Can anyone give me some details on which is the easiest to get? And by easiest, I mean takes less time and can be obtained by someone who isn't exactly the most.....loved.....person on the server.

To maximize your chances of getting a proto-drake:
1): Get revered with the Oracles and always have a mysterious egg in your inventory. 2): Run H UP every day 3): Go for the heroic achievements whenever possible. 4): Spend free time patrolling the Time-Lost Proto-Drake's route in Storm Peaks. Extremely boring, extremely time consuming, and still very luck based. To give you an idea of how rare it is, it has a 1 in 15 chance of spawning in place of Vyragosa, another rare spawn. 5): Don't bother with the raid ones. By the time you get all of them, 3.1 will be out and the drakes will be gone.
But to answer your question, how easy a proto-drake is to get would depend on your luck. If you are a very unlucky person like me, than the easiest time-wise would probably be the Red Proto-Drake which you get from doing a list of achievements in heroic 5 mans which range from 'so-easy-you'll-get without-even-trying' to 'banging-your-head -against t-he-wall-frustrating'.
If by easy, you mean least amount of effort, than Green Proto-Drake from the Oracles is, by far, the easiest.
