In which Deyndor QQs.
So I had two other posts that I planned on making this week, but one I haven’t started and the other I need to finish. This however takes precedence. Reading the patch notes today (thanks Amber for the google doc of them for those of us with mean IT people) and I noticed something:
World Event Bosses
The previous summoning criteria for these bosses have been removed. Players can queue up for and fight each World Event boss as many times as they want for any standard loot that they may drop.
All rare holiday items (such as The Horseman’s Reins) will have a chance of being found in holiday-themed loot troves which will drop once for each player in the party no more than once per day, in the same manner that doing the Random Dungeon daily quest will provide a specific reward the first time it is completed in a day.
Now, reading that last section, about the holiday bosses, got me quite peeved. Some of you may remember my post about Ollyn getting a new horsie back in October. I run the holiday stuff with 4 friends. When mounts drop, we talk and decide who should get it. For the Horseman’s Reins it was decided that I would get it (yay me! ) Actually, we rolled and I won, but normally for stuff like that we decide who gets it. With this new system, unless anything like that is trade-able (which I doubt it will be), we don’t have that option anymore.
Maybe I’m not reading it correctly, but it seems like they’ve just cut down the chance to get rare mounts and what not. Which, will make them more rare and stop the ninja’ing of them, but still. Instead of having four (or five) chances at the cool holiday items per day, I now have one. Thanks blizz. Hope you increase the drop rate to better suit this system.
Thanks for listening to my QQ, I’ll try and have one of the previously mentioned posts up shortly.
