Hailstone Construct - Drustvar Battle for Azeroth World Boss

Built by the original inhabitants of Drustvar, the Hailstone Construct was built to defend these lands from any invaders. However, years of dormancy have left it addled, and it now sees all residents as threats, vowing to destroy them all.

Weekly Bonus Event - Arena Skirmishes

This Week: Arena Skirmishes
All week, from anywhere in Azeroth, open the Group Finder (default hotkey: i), select the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window, and then under Casual, choose Arena Skirmish and JOIN BATTLE. You’ll be matched up with teammates and provided with opponents to kill in the Arena. You can also queue for a Premade group or create your own group within the Premade tab.

Look for the following all week long:

  • Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and in Boralus has a quest for you–The Arena Calls. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal.
    • Quest requirement: Win 10 Arena PvP Skirmishes
    • Reward: A PvP loot box
  • Passive buff: +50% honor gains from Skirmishes

If you’ve been looking to make some Honor gains, this is the week to do it!

    I don't get that why skirmishes are a thing, even less why they would deserve their own event. Why not a normal or ranked arena event? I must be missing something.

    For Warfronts...if I completed the entry quest last cycle, do I get another quest for another ilvl 370 item this cycle?

    Think it's time they start doubling up on events.

    Probably so it can be queued for without making a premade group, my best guess.

    I got a rock from killing that worldboss. Totally not worth the effort it took to climb the mountain to get to him. I keep getting NOTHING from raids and world bosses. What the fuck is going on with loot?

    You have mimiced my Lock and Druid for every WB or Raid for the last 3 weeks. All I get is Azurite, Gold or vendor trash. I would invest in the Tokens, but all I got with those as well was Azurite, Gold or trash that I cant use.

    Main reason I gave up on doing Reg Mythic or higher.... Never get what I can actually use.

    Borefonts, enough said.
    Skirmishes need a rating system. It's nice that you can solo queue for them, and they shouldn't have the same rewards as Arena, but without a rating system they're just a harder and less rewarding version of Arena.

    If it had a rating system it wouldn't be a skirmish anymore... that's kinda the point of them.

    " Imagine this:
    to get a 4 piece McNuggets, you pay, get your nuggets and your happy and all that then some idiot comes and also gets 4 piece McNuggets but it McForges into a 12 piece McNuggets with a soda and some fries and you're standing there like a !@#$ing idiot with your dumb 4 piece McNuggets while he/she has more than you for some weird reason even tho you both payed the same price but you are less rewarded because...

    Couldn't agree more. It used to be that if you raided, you had access to the best possible PVE gear and you knew what pieces were good for your class, end of story.
    I'm sure others are having fun, but the quite frankly cynical designs of RNG still remaining puts me off. At least I have MegAquarium and soon, RDR2 outside of raiding.

    The most least hostile looking world boss in the history of world bosses. This thing looks like it's just lonely.

    Happened on two characters in the Warfront: boss dies -> gets loot (1st char got cloak, 2nd got boots). Return quest for 370ilvl loot, BOTH characters got the SAME LOOT but just 370ilvl, wth....???
    340ilvl cloak/boots --> 370ilvl cloak/boots! My characters feel cheated.
