    While something more elaborate would admittedly be cooler, i don't really mind that the pre-event is cobbled together from old bits and pieces, the pre-event lasts three weeks, so inventing new stuff for that is a bit of a waste, i'd rather they put the real effort into the expansion we'll be spending two years in, TBH

    So let me get this straight.

    Upon killing these evil bosses, there was no cleanup crew to scour the locations and burn the dead, especially considering THEY CAN BE REANIMATED AT ANY TIME?! Then surely Arthas...!!!!

    Do we have any information, when will the prepatch hit live servers?

The bosses we faced were pretty much slaughtered dead by the Heroes and last I checked, Bolvar isn't raising these bosses back from the dead either, the whole point of the Helm of Domination was that he was keeping control of the undead that were still left alive. Destroying that Helmet doesn't suddenly "raise slain bosses from the past" it severs the link of control between Bolvar and the Scourge that were left to roam the wastes of Northrend.

    That's why this event goes against the Lore, it's dumb for the sake of Nostalgia. Atleast with the lore figures we end up encountering in the Shadowlands makes sense, because that is where they went when they died.

    Why don't just wait to see the story and how the Jailer is involved?

    I mean we start the whole thing by having Mawsworn Kyrian absudct select faction leaders to the Maw.

    This means that whatever is in Maw could come to Azeroth anyway and all scourge goes to the Maw, that's actually a thing even before.

    It does not take much imagination to consider that shit we get back in the event came back from Maw too, because that's where we sent them as is and the way back is clear now, at least for Jailer's buds.

    BfA had a single zone with rares at max level but it had pvp events and the zone was graphically revamped beyond a nice skybox. Legion did not revamp the zones it used but it used multiple (was it six or eight) zones with dynamic events, new mogs and a great catchup system for alts. Even WoD which also only had a single zone with minimal changes at least also had the dungeon preview.
    no, BfA had a questline which was split up into two weeks. there was no pvp event. Shadowlands prepatch is fine, it might seem like it's less efforts than Legion's but that is because Legion's prepatch was an actual invasion. the prepatch has to match the story events

    Considering they're dealing with working from home and that the event only lasts a few weeks, I'm not sure this is necessarily a bad thing.

    The patch will also arrive with the level squish and revamp so it's not like people won't have things to do.

    Randomly spawned old NPCs with tuned up HP is a fun thing now.

    But I guess you are dissapointed that not everyone is polishing Blizzards buttcrack so you will just slither away, right?

    Why can't they just come up with new interesting characters to kill? Ressurecting old NPCs feels lazy and boring...

    And the fact that the death is not final is one of the core concepts of Warcraft. Without it, none of Warcraft would have happened. No Gul'dan and 1st gen Deathknights, no Ner'zhul talking to his deceased wife and mistaking Kil'Jaeden for her, no Lich King, no Kel'Thuzad, no Banshee Queen, no nothing. Death is simply a different state of existence.
    This is a fantasy world, not real life.
    ^This.

    Players tend to forget that this is still a fantasy game.

    oh I wasn't aware of that. I was more talking explicitly about the prepatch. and yeah that makes sense

    Even fantasy has rules, current "writers" just decided to shit all over them.

    Be careful OP, saying something is amazing in WoW will bring out the moaning d*cks that think their opinion is right and the game should cater to them only...

    Don't forget all the sad, lonely, miserable people who can't bear to see other people excited about something.
    When in doubt, simply ask yourself: "What would Garrosh do?"

    All the people moaning here seem to forget the fact that this is an event, it is an extra, a tradition.. Be happy they still come up with it and they actually put effort into it.

    Don´t like it? then go to moan somewhere else where people care about your lament.

    Gee, I can't imagine why they'd complain about Blizzard giving them a recycled ghoul event and recycled bosses with recycled loot in a place that has been virtually unchanged since WoTLK.
    Poor Blizzard always getting shit on for their generous charity work.

    You do know we are dealing with forces that can both bring back and control the dead and undead right?
    You know you are dealing with a lazy excuse to just recycle old bosses, some of which died more than once already, right?*

    Could be worse. You could be feverishly defending a pretty mediocre event.
