    Hording coins for next week?

    So, I've had to skip two weeks of normals and suddenly it seems Heart of Fear LFR (part 2) is going to open up before I get back in. I'm sitting on four coins and I could have seven next Tuesday. This morning it suddenly occurred to me that I could fight Empress Shek'zeer seven times and have eight chances at getting a Sha-touched weapon.

    Does anyone know if this has been hot-fixed out or (alternatively) is anyone else planning on doing the same thing?

    LFR, then normal or heroic.

    That's two trips? Unless I'm missing something.

    Currently, when you queue up for another LFR and down the same boss you are given another chance to use your coin. Unless this has been removed recently.

    I'm not sure if it's been fixed or not but what are the possibilities of even getting that far and kill it that many times?

    I talked to my guildies and they had told me that in HoF Part 1 most LFR groups were only able to kill the first two bosses and not the third. I never got to find out for myself because every single time I attempted to queue over a period of five hours yesterday it tried to give me a 2/6 queue every time, I never saw a fresh one.

    There's the strong possibility you might get a bugged queue or many groups of LFR people who just cannot complete the final boss in HoF Part 2, at least for awhile.

    I had the same experience my first attempt. Then Blizzard hotfix-nerfed Garalon because he wasn't "appropriate for LFR."

    First of all, that really does suck and I'm sorry. I'm on Kil'Jaeden and my queues are rarely longer than thirty minutes as DPS. Even at 3am. Even faster on my healer alt.

    While that's true, I likely have months to do it. (Hopefully it won't take longer than a few days of relentless LFR queueing, but we'll see.)

    It was a bug, you can only get loot once even if you get the offer to use another charm when killing a boss for the second time. GMs do not reward your charm back after making a ticket, check blizzard's forums it's full of it.

    I'm really glad you showed me this. I was going completely off the comments on Wowhead.

    No problem, I was wondering about the same yesterday after a friend told me the charm roll popped up after killing a boss for the second time in LFR

    Yeah, I'm a healer...I'm pretty sure my queue was bugged since it never gave me a fresh one even though it would pop relatively quickly.

    I'm just wondering if people are having that big of an issue with the third boss on Part 1 what it will be like when Part 2 is released and people are trying out the third boss in there. :P Luckily for me I came back later than expansion release and never got to see the first week of Elegon in LFR (although I probably would have fallen over laughing when the floor dropped out and the entire raid died), but I do strongly remember the first week that Spine of Deathwing was in LFR and 3/4 of the raid flew off his back at first roll.

    Anyways, back on topic: Looks like someone got you the response you were looking for about if the charms still worked. Sorry that they don't. :P

    Oh believe me, the laugh I got from that was worth the disappointment.

    Have them try it again? Garalon in LFR was hotfixed because it was too hard.

    Also, if the stated goal of the OP is to get a Sha-Touched weapon from the final boss, this "2 of 3 bosses killed" would be a boon for him, assuming the group fills and they kill it...
