    WoW's 17th Anniversary (November 15 - December 6, 2021)

    WoW's 17th Anniversary (November 15 - December 6, 2021)
    WoW's 17th Anniversary starts on November 15th. New to this year's event are several rewards such as the Doomwalker Trophy Stand toy and the Illidari Doomhawk mount which drop from the new Doomwalker World Boss in Tanaris.

    Update: The event is now live in all regions, and players have found more info about the new Illidari Doomhawk mount and the other rare drops from the Doomwalker.
    • The drop rate of the mount is very low, and it's currently assumed to be around 1%.
    • To be eligible for the mount, toy and transmog, characters must be level 30 or above.
    • Doomwalker's loot is personal and resets daily, just like the loot from the other Timewalking World Bosses.
    • Doomwalker looks to be an addition to the Anniversary Event, and will likely return next year.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, some familiar foes have returned to Azeroth—with some slightly updated abilities. Players level 30 and above can take on Lord Kazzak, Azuregos, and one of the four Dragons of Nightmare each day for some loot and Timewarped Badges.

    You’ll also be able to do a little Timewalking to take on the Doomwalker with the weekly quest, “Doomwalkin’ Has Come Knockin” for Timewarped Badges and a chance at additional rewards including the Doomwalker Trophy Stand toy or Illidari Doomhawk mount.

    They probably wanted it to have "TBC feel" so they used TBC textures.

    Is that the old AV again? The AV we couldn't get in classic.

    Will old av have the bitching xp gain or the sad xp gain?

    No, its a mount.

    I'm a bit wary of the "chance at" portion since nothing like RNG screwing you over. That said, it really is a barebones dragonhawk, they could have at least put a saddle on it.

    Lame everything. 2/10 only because the pet. Would've given it a 3/10 if it was painted but whatever.

    Have none of you ever seen a dragonhawk before?
    They were pretty popular as both pets and mounts back in TBC, like the Sunreaver dragonhawk mount which is pretty badass if you ask me. This one was kinda meh though.

    i guess good looking mounts only go to the shop. sigh...

  14. #14
    guess your playerbase is just worth a low% recolored world boss drop which we probably never gonna get in the first place

  15. #15
    Another Cheap copy of a already done mount in the game...../SIGH

    "Hey guys remember that corehound mount and mini-deathwing mount we made for a few anniversary events a couple years back? Yeah well here's a grey textured dragonhawk from seven expansions ago that kinda looks like a low poly version of the unique mount you can get from the current mythic raid. Also it's a percent based drop off the new boss."

    You'd think Doomwalker would drop a I dunno.... mini-doomwalker mount in the style of a sky golem or something than a Blood Elf mount.
