We've come to expect our holiday bosses to work a certain way here in World of Warcraft
. Once every few months, we get a chance to go queue up for a unique boss that drops some nice loot to provide easy upgrades for casual players, and we get a daily package with a chance at some sort of fun pet
, as well as a BoE weapon
. This has been a very nice arrangement for all involved.
This year on Winter Veil
, Blizzard muddied the waters a bit. Rather than put the boss in a dungeon, Blizzard put him right smack dab in Alterac
, uninstanced, and made the daily package come from a daily quest
. Now, if you want to kill him, you have to fly out to him and grab a group, then take him down.
