” The League Will Lose – Warfronts Equipment Cache containing a 340 Azerite Piece” r
This info is inaccurate since I’ve done this quest and got hands as a reward (works similarly as the 370 chest horde had last week from winning a warfront except is 340 gear)

Thanks for the write-up. Very helpful!r

Do you know if the world boss re-spawns quickly or how long the re-spawn time is?

Yet no reset rares for Alliance. They couldve kept both factions occupied but nooo.

Contributions quests are officially open for Alliance, located by the docks behind the Wind’s Redemption in Dazar’alorr

Is this a typo?

Maybe this is just me but as an Alliance player this system is already dead to me. The concept is cool don’t get me wrong, but the execution of both clarity on how it works and how both sides are rewarded were so poorly thought out that it killed any interest I have in it. Sure it’s exciting not knowing what it’s all about but when you’re time sensitive you want to make sure you don’t miss anything.r
r
Then the loot, oh man the loot. Right understanding the fact that it is only 1 piece of gear Horde got since everyone loves throwing that line around (specifically Horde) “Its just one piece of gear” Well say that one piece of gear gives you only 50 DPS right? Means nothing, but now scale that up, week 1 raid which is already tough, everyone in your group getting that free piece of gear, 30-40 people with +50 DPS now it starts to matter.r
r
Again, maybe it’s just me. This feature was interesting, but it’s disappointed me to much already for me to want to hold that interest in it.

This is what happens when you edit things after sleeping for only 4 hours. It’s all fixed! Thanks again <3

No different then when Alliance got weapons in their emissary caches and the horde got nothing.

So why did horde get to farm alliance rares for 2 weeks and now they did not reset for us too?

Very much different, the emissaries are completely RNG and it was up to chance that horde got shafted on that. This is Blizz actively shafting one faction at a time

Okay as I recall Horde got a weapon reward before Alliance, but either way everyone got a free 345 last week regardless of faction and is higher ilvl then anything you can get from WQs. So not really a counter, and doesn’t pertain to the issue with Warfronts anyway.

So if one used their two coins already, is it better to wait for the weekly reset to get another coin before killing Lion’s roar?

I would say check to see if the loot from the world boss is worth a roll first. If it is, then yeah, wait until the reset.

There seems to be an error in the mouseover of the agility trinket, hey xDr

My eyes almost fell of their orbits when I saw “increasing your Agility by 43939 every 2 seconds”, hahaha. It’s still a good trinkeet, though^^

That’s a bit of an exaggeration, plus +50 DPS matters less the larger your raid size gets with the scaling. I get where you’re coming from but I don’t think this impacts it very much.

It’ll be up until control of Arathi goes back to the Alliance, so you have two or three weeks. Depends on how long it takes for us to open up the Warfront.

That’s the difference from a 355 to a 370. Picked the most boring an plain item I had equipped and just made a 370 version of it which is a 78 DPS increase. That’s from 355, at the start of last week I would say most people would have been replacing 340 gear, maybe even lower. My 50 DPS example was very realistic I felt, even though it’s probably closer to the 100 DPS mark. Even if you consider maybe it only adds 1500 DPS to the group, over a 7 minute fight that equates to over 600k damage the Alliance didn’t get. It might sound silly or nit picky and I guess it kind of is, but at the end of the day it’s biased on my part cause I feel I got shafted, but it’s also Blizzard being biased toward Horde. The world boss takes turns being Alliance/Horde killable. The WQ simply should be a guarantee to give 370, that way every week both sides get it. It becomes about the content not who gets better loot this week. That is my issue with it.

On a technical level, it’s because the quest flags that mark rares start in the incomplete state, and are only reset when a faction gains control of the warfront zone. Since Horde had never owned the zone, their quest flags were incomplete when the Alliance gained control (the initial control). The Alliance, on the other hand, already flagged the rares as complete when the Horde gained control.r
r
In effect, it does give the Horde one more crack at the rares than Alliance will get in the lifetime of the expansion, because Blizzard didn’t change their standard implementation (quest flags set to incomplete by default) to account for resetting only at your faction gaining control. Historically, these things have been universal resets for everyone, with access being the only thing that changes based on zone control.
