    Thanks. Noticed he stood for a bit once he reached 5% or so, would have been cool if the scene played out. Ah, well, alt tabbed and watched it on YouTube. Need more Tyrande now.

    Because she was trying to find out where Sylvanas was ... Was that not clear enough when she said "Where is she?".
    Like he would have said anything...

    What would be nice is if every day the rares take less and less time to spawn, or make it guaranteed loot drops. Advertised as a way to get alts catchup gear, the long spawn timer and only a chance at loot means you might get 1-2 geared up while ignoring the rest. Even the prepatch makes it seem like SL will, in fact, be alt unfriendly.

    This was a bit disappointing, at least week 1. The ice crown dailies are pretty meh and the quest line that starts it all off is just a go here do this quest chain.

    I know we weren't going to get the world trotting quest from Wrath prepatch, but this seems like it was designed last week, the whole prepatch feels that way. They should have just released this with the preprepatch.

    Is it just me, or does Patchwork look like he has an updated model?

    EDIT: I did miss it...NPC was swarmed with players

    Next question: He is a "once per week" or even just a "do him only once" boss?
    He was labeled like a World Boss WQ so I would assume it is a once a week boss.

    I know man I can’t believe vanilla rare’s have spawn timers or that my daily’s can only be once a day, I mean remember when new content had no time gates?
    wow you comparing week/month time gate with a few hours rare ?

    Daily's weren't weekly or monthly time gates you Goomba and Rare's have had hour time gates since vanilla.

    Additionally the catch up gear doesn’t come anywhere close to replacing the ilvl 90 azerite gear I’m wearing. Even disregarding the traits, the replacement gear had less Int on it but more secondary stats. Unfortunately for classes like Shadowpriest, Int has higher value than secondary stats
    The azerite traits will stop working the moment you step into a Shadowlands zone, so you'd be well advised to keep a helm/shoulder/chest on you so. Unless whatever greater amount of int on your azerite gear is worth having 0 secondary stats.

    Ahh. I see. You're one of those "recolors are not content" people. Also calling something "old" does not imply they are unobtainable, that's you projecting. If I can go kill a rare I'm going to kill anyway and get a mog that the Wrath version of the mob drops so I don't have to go and farm it myself, essentially getting a free bous to what I'm going to be doing anyway, I'd vote that was a positive.

    Getting mogs and other goodies that will be gone possibly forever isn't a solid reason?
