    This is a good time also to remind folks to not overlook that there are a few obtainable tabards in the game with porting ability. Namely the Tol Barad tabard and more importantly right now the Argent Tourney tabard which will port you right to the Argent Tourney grounds in Icecrown. The Tol Barad one will port you about 3 steps from the capital city portal, essentially giving you an extra capital city hearth. Both are very useful, the Argent Tourney tabard especially during this event.

    I expected a mount, or unique transmog, but I don't see the unique transmog.

    Nathanos drops item level 115 gear. The original thumbnail was from the PTR, we have updated it now.

    Not gonna lie, the Tyrande/Nathanos confrontation cutscene is actually pretty well done imo. I was pleasantly surprised. Kudos to the voice actor of Nathanos, he did a fantastic job.

    We get a toy and a pet and catch up gear that will be essentially invalidates after a few weeks. How much time would you like Devs to spend on a pre-expansion event instead of the actual expansion?

    We didn’t need to get anything at all. And if you’re not happy with it, don’t bother with it.

    but you heard him out ? he is of course en route to "his lady", so he will say hello in SL to you again.
    yeah, he's a nuisance for quite a while longer than just pre event....

    Yea, i figured this would happen the moment they announced him as a Boss... But here is hoping he sticks out of our sight till the first content patch at least.

    Pretty funny to see that Nathanos does not care at all about his defeat since he knows what will happen.
    He pretty mutch took a teleport into the Shadowlands.

    Yea.. as expected. "We kill" him, well not really, and then it's pointless to boot since death is now meaningless in WoW anyway.

    Also blizzard can't even give cuntrande a tiny bit of glory eh? Killing Nathanos in an utterly inconsequential way with some of the lamest fight choreography I've seen in a cinematic. They could have at least let her incinerate him with Elune's fury to make it a tini-tiny bit ambiguous if he reached the shadowlands. Just cutting his neck would make sense if this was part of her character progression, but even if we take her mellowing out in the book into account, her SL appearance is all-fury-no-brains again, so it's not much of a progression and more yoyoing up and down.

    Yep. Death in warcraft now just means teleported to another realm and live till you die again.
