im just sad that theres nothing new to get in this pre patch. last xpac we got a mount, this one we get catch up gear. coooooool
Just wanna say that I am so glad that the huge pre-patch event that everyone has been waiting for just has us rare farming like we have been for 2+ years. Great content, blizz. It really never gets old.I absolutely LOVE the idea of spending SEVEN HOURS farming these rares.
Nope, no sarcasm detected here. Move along.
Blizzard should make the rares spawn faster than 7 hours or at least make the new currency account-wide.
can you please include a map with pins on where the rares are? we shouldn't need to be in-game with an addon to see that please
if theyre gonna make a prepatch for new and returning players, they should at least give us that stuck with them through the garbage that was BFA something nice too.
The timing of everything in this event shows it was meant to go on more than just 2 weeks. And to slap it on top of the anniversary event when people were still trying to farm transmogs. Too much crap going on at once.
Unless it's a bug right now...you can get loot from the rares more than once per day.
I've never complained on about a pre-patch event but this one isn't fun at all. Waiting around 19 minutes and 45 seconds for a rare to spawn, then lag out for 15 seconds - rinse repeat doesn't seem like a good way to get catchup gear for new players or alts. I prefer the Legion event. I have no solution so sorry for the cranky post but this isn't fun. People are so bored waiting around they are doing the a**l in General chat. lol! However everyone is being polite enough to share the what rare we're on for those just logging in or those who have just completed the quest. This is how I chose to spend a minute before The Black Prince spawns. Happy Hunting!
Are the rares like normal ones where you can only loot them daily or are they lootable everytime they're up?
Amazing what blizz does to simple expectations.I intended to run all my alts through this rare-chasing marathon thinking it was gonna be like Mechagon.When I realized that only one rare spawned every 20min my spirit was shattered and I barely played one alt.
The grace period is two minutes from the first zone wide message to being attackable.Also bag on first kill, boiiii
When I was doing that quest where you take control of a zombie and sloooooowly kill a bunch of enemies, I didn't get the zone announcement when an Elite (specifically, the Black Knight) was spawning in. Did this happen to anyone else?
I don't think 20 minutes is terrible, though I feel like maybe 15 minutes would be better. That way you get 1 extra rare per hour. Even 10 minutes would be nice.Also, I don't think it's a terrible way to go about it - especially as they've done it. The same rare, across all servers, spawns at xx:00, xx:20, and xx:40 o'clock on the in-game clock. It's quite easy to keep track of, do a little mount farming for 20 minutes between, quick log-in/log-out. I thought it would be more unenjoyable, but I'm slowly getting the Scrougestones for the catch-up gear on my alts.
