    but since we all travel to the afterlife in SL, you just cannot get rid of his presence for a while. dungeon boss ? raid boss? time will tell....
    Everyone hates nathanos but i though he would be a raid boss. Died like garrosh

    Killing Nathanos was really Anticlimactic. This Event is a huge let down in terms of fun

    Well... that certainly made me more interested in what is going on with Tyrande.

    That "for Teldrassil" certainly didn't sound satisfying. The best is still to come.

    She let him off easy. Tyrande should have cut his arms and legs off. Then ripped his jaw out. Then pinned him to the wall of the cabin. He is undead, can hang there and suffer for eternity unable to say another word.

    I approve. But, it's Blizzard. They do these things half assed.

    The likely reason is they can reuse him as a raid boss.

    I can't remember the bfa event but the one before legion was badass, cruising around westfall or barrens with a full 40 man raid killing all the elites swarming the area. This is a snooze fest.

    The nathanos/tyrande cinematic didn't seem well done either, the combat was really lazy.

    nathanos is not dropping the auto looted weapons for some classes and specs. they did a hot fix some hours back to make loot drops match spec, before BM/MM hunters were getting a polearm for survival spec, arms wars getting a 1H, etc, etc. but now, no loot at random for many.

    some say you die, you get the cut scene but then no loot. i had this happen on a player, but next player i took over, stayed alive, no loot. overall jacked and inconsistent

    but

    The Legion event was open to all lvls and the bad guys scaled. It was great to help lvl up the last little push if you were not already Max lvl and gear was available for all lvls. This one is only for those that are maxed already. That's what's got me disappointed.

    I read on one of the WoWhead comments that you need to have the kill quest from either in SW or Org to be able to see the cinematic after you kill him. If you kill him when you don't have the quest, then the cinematic won't play. It happened to me on my druid. I thought seeing the WQ for him would be enough but it wasn't. I got gold as loot after I killed him but no cinematic played. Then I went and got the quest in SW and then I killed Nathanos again and then the cinematic played. I also was confused on where I would get the quest for him until I looked it up on WoWhead. There's no breadcrumb quest to get the kill quest... You actually have to go back to either Org or SW and talk to the messenger NPC to get the kill quest. The messenger NPC also has some dialogue that says something like that he saw him or maybe he saw him or whatever. This NPC is also beside the main NPC that gives the quest chain to go to Icecrown initially.

    its not her, its the warrior of elune that controls her body so to speak and that entity doesn't care about torturing (if you have played beta You would know)

    I had the quest, and the cinematic didn't play. It faded to black like it was going to, and a second later I was back looking at my UI without even touching so much as the mouse because I wanted to see it.

    There's unique transmog, chance to get old transmog and blue proto, a 34-slot bag, a pet, a toy, and a FoS for finishing the questline.

    Mine kept blacking out for several seconds, then restarting. Happened a few times.

    They give you a warning, then make the bosses immune for 2-3 minutes before they can even be attacked. What are you complaining about? If you're camping the rares then put yourself in the middle of the zone.
