Blizzard Email - Last Chance to Get Battle for Azeroth Rewards
Blizzard has sent emails to players informing them that now is the last chance to get some Battle for Azeroth rewards, showcasing the Uncorrupted Voidwing mount which will be removed when Shadowlands launches on October 27th.

Since Shadowlands officially launches on October 27 and the Pre-Patch for Wrath of the Lich King, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor and Battle for Azeroth lasted 4 weeks, it's possible that the Shadowlands Pre-Patch will release on September 29 in NA (September 30 in EU). Expect an official announcement soon!

    No.
    It will be back after Nathria opens and M+ begins.

    It was pretty much expected to be launched on Sept. 29th once release date announcement hit so this isn't new information. Heck, even before release date we were estimating prepatch last week of September or in October based on the cloak status alone. So you already had information on it's release date, but are now upset there's two more weeks?

    Removing items from the game is the worst decision in a long line of bad decisions from Blizzard.

    I'm proud to not have those mounts.

    I got the Voidwing and... that's it. I haven't even unlocked Mechagon yet and I am kinda done with Mythic+ anyways. Might attempt Mad World but it's really not something I am looking forward to do.

    The heroic mount, along with Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge, are the only missble rewards obtained by raiding current content (apart from the occasional odd achievement like The Chosen). They are usually a big drive for players to clear at least heroic content.

    I would say it's fine as it is. The 1% mount for last boss is the mythic one that gets its drop rate reduced.

    In these cases, afaik atleast the Mythic mount will still drop, but like so many old raids it wont be guaranteed and low drop rate. Idk about the Uncorrupted Voidwing. Then again, I agree with your sentiment.

    I hate it when Blizzard removes mounts permanently. Would they put it on the BMAH at least? Still waiting too subscribe the moment they give us the Black Proto-Drake.

    I have barely played this expansion and have a max levels. How does one even get into a Heroic Mode? Don't i have to clear it on Normal first?

    if it was going to be the 29th shouldnt we have the 2 week pvp notice by now? Isnt that pretty solid precedent they dont usually break?

    Another bluish dragon and an ugly eyeball thing that isn't worth the 150k to get it easy with a guild run carry.

    Is there anything fun to do the 4 weeks of pre-patch? Like fun class revamps etc?

    I'm buying Warhammer 40K shit out of boredom, to make a diorama. I'm contributing to UK's GDP by buying already painted figures from random people. And holy shit this is getting expensive.

    I got a bidding war on ebay in 30 minutes.
    LOL damn. How did the bidding go?

    Won them all. No one else bid so I got 5 items for like 5 pounds each. Unpainted, I paint them myself.
    3 melee Necron Scorpekh Destroyers and 2 Cryptothralls.

    Round two is tomorrow. That one is serious, 9 bids already.

    Meanwhile the picture is showcasing a bad reskin. Should've shown the Tidestorm, only good raid mount they've made in quite some time.

    Why do people assume it's going to be two weeks and not on the 23rd?

If one is not currently subscribed, it's not worth subscribing for 1 month six weeks prior to the expansion launching if it's possible to wait until the last couple weeks and still snag the mount. At least that is my thought process.

    It's not necessary to subscribe pre-pre-patch if you want the mount.

    All that is to say, please edit the OP because it seems to be misleading.
    No one knows how much harder things will be when corruption gets switched off , on ptr mobs hit harder than on live so pugs killing hc nzoth will be unlinkely , sure you could still buy it from Mythic raiders boosting
