Now only does it click 10 times, but it does it in a pattern.
clicks 6 times *pause* click 2 times *pause* clicks 2 times then spins down.

If you disconnect and reconnect the power, it does the exact same thing every single time. It's a 1TB WD My Passport Ultra WDBZFP001BBK-03

If you need the data take the drive to a REPUTABLE data recovery firm.

If you don't need the data buy a new drive and replace the damaged one.

As stated most likely head(s) are gone (or pre-amp) and the more you power it up the more you risk to damage the data for good ...

Bad advice!

How would “seeing the internals” help?

Firstly I doubt the OP would know what to look for, secondly he/she wouldn’t be able to fix it, and thirdly it would introduce contaminants and lessen chances of recovery.

Drive has most like heads issue and need to be send to decent DR professional if you need data on the drive. The more you power up will make things worse.
