    link is so far correct as we know.
    grain of salt: the event is silent on PTR for quite some time now; we would be unaware of any change until we are called upon to test again OR event goes live after inhouse test.

    another imperfection to note: the gear from the quartermasters covers 9 slots only. no weapons, no rings, trinkets etc. by our current knowledge we will have to poke the rares to fill those slots AND some classes currently are without a rare designated for their favourite weapons. for example if you want a bow you will have to kill everybody and their grandma of the 20 mobs and hope for the best. and 2h staves ? non existent same with caster trinkets

    if the absence of the event from PTR is a good sign then something will change soon-ish. otherwise expect a shitstorm.

    30 according to Wowhead. And gear is static at 100 so it's awesome for leveling

    You could always get a ring/trinket/weapon by doing something as difficult as a WQ

    I really hope there is more to this event for level 50 players other than armor sets a lot of us already have and (Mythic 5 equivalent) gear we no longer need. If the only incentive is a "whopping" total of 2 bag slots, this will be a whole lot of nothing for people's mains. I can't believe there's no word on a mount.

    pre-event is meant to gear you in fancy stuff for next to nothing effort and everything on a platin platter and yesterday pls.
    if those rares would drop the stuff or quartermaster expands its shop you are more than ready for SL withing 6 hours of activities of event.

    remember: pre-event should be the last thing on your mind before launch, every other content is considered meaningless by then. those ilvl 100 niceties are more pretty than the gear the premade chars in beta wear through the maw-oribos questline, that's ilv75 only.

    pre event is as usual meaningless for any mythic geared player. ilvl 100 is nyalotha normal, but this time for next to nothing skill and effort and meant for the alts or transmog.
    remember: chromie yanks alts back to normal timeline immediately upon lvl50 from whatever expansion they experienced chromie time leveling on warpspeed, no time to pick up full gear during level runs. and blizzard is totally ok with throwing BFA (level areas, dungeons, raids, whatever) out of the window; you are entitled to wait for pre event, poke the rares, exchange tokens for ilvl100 gear and done.

    I see you got your 5,076 posts by regurgitating in your own choice of words the exact same thing the people you quote had already said, with a hint of "stating the obvious" and "completely irrelevant points" sprinkled in as an attempt to mask the fact that you're essentially just spamming.

    dont ask questions already answered then. purpose of pre event was clear since it appeared on PTR. and no, it is not meant for everybody, it never was.

    Are the gear BOA? Can you farm it on the main etc. Or is it better to farm on the alt you use the gear on cause its...well personal loot, eg cloth for cloth.

    Yeah basically the prelaunch stuff lately is "here's some gear so you can level faster in the coming expansion or maybe get some raiding in on a new alt"

    "dont ask questions already answered then" does not address the comment I made toward you which you quoted, at all. There is also not a single question mark in my original comment. Those were statements giving my opinion on the pre-patch, the last of which gave people incentive to participate in on their mains with an incredible mount as the final reward. Your added input is redundant, unnecessary, regurgitative, and borderline spam.

    Are you a bot or just hollow upstairs?

    Oh, whoops! Oh well, it was a rhetorical question anyway.

    I don't think they've ever been, but your question could easily have been answered faster with the link provided earlier.

    when pre event was live on PTR: all tokens and gear were bop. bring your main to icecrown for the transmog and then the alts as well

    leveling faster ? well, it warrants your survival upon arrival in SL at least.
    dunno it it is a spoiler, but for the first hour or so not a single new item finds its way into your bags. you better grab your best gear and then you'll leave Azeroth behind for a wild ride into SL
