Wondering if they'll be shared as well as the Isle of Thunder Rares? Hmmm.
The new rare events look cool.
wtf.. too much :O
Oh yay... rares...Like we need another grindy check-up rare system that the isle of thunder had? Annoying as hell to check everything 100 times to see their bodies.
OMG RARES. I love rares. I really do. I feel special when I snag them.
I want a Racing Snail.
I find the guides interesting and well done but sometimes it would be nice to just discover them without it. Curse me for opening the page.
A Bone ApartNapoleon Bonaparte?
I really like that this island is not a daily grind, but a place that promotes exploration - and in some cases, lore - in order to earn your rewards. You can also grind if you want, but by the looks of it, blizz has encouraged way more interesting, satisfying, and fun ways to get your rewards. I have to wonder if pet battle tournament winners will also earn timeless coins and how many? And, will there be an option for a PvP pet battle tournament?. I also like the lore quiz idea, it might cause some people to read up on their lore to either find the answers, or just out of interest. Although I wish there was a better way to implement lore, this is still a great idea. On top of everything covered here along with the 5 world bosses, this island seems like it'll be the pinnacle of what WoW used to be in the older days: Exploration, fun events, world bosses, and an overall enjoyable experience with others. I can't wait for this patch to release! :D
Do these rares give valor? If so how much? 15?
I'm assuming we'll have to do scenarios to open this island too? =\\I didn't like them because you have to open them up on every single 90.
with that racing snail and the bat mount....hmmmmm!
Rares just aren't rares anymore. They haven't been since Cata. They should really just call them special mobs or something. I mean, we're talking about mobs that respawn in 15 minutes, and appear on the in-game minimap. What is rare about that? Don't expect to see a new TLPD anytime soon.
I know that--at least, so far--The rare elites on the Isle won't drop much but Timeless Coins, but...Can you imagine if Huolon dropped a Thundering Onyx Cloud Serpent?Just the thought of something like a TLPD or Aeonaxx on this island makes me cringe a little.
