Am I reading that right about the arch reward? Seems too good to be true.
I knew I wasnt going to get my mana saber today #cheatedbeforeChristmas
yeah, got confused with Breaking the Nighthold and the final quest, Breaching the Sanctum.
So, Blizzard stated that the final part of Insurrection would reward the mount. Now we have to defeat Gul'dan in order to get it? That seems to be a bold face lie on their part. The questline was very interesting and rewarding with AP but we were promised a mount for doing it.
The wording in https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/20324478 states:
The Insurrection questline has been really good, I hope they continue doing things like this in the future (for Tomb of Sargeras, Argus, etc). Also looking forward to the archaeology reward this time, gonna be a nice boost for some of my alts.As a side note, there's a small typo:
I knew it that it was a lie. when they announce that the reward was after a series of solo quests and you didn't need raid quest to finish it.
The flavor text for the mount suggests that it was a reward from doing something from Nighthold. Gul'dan seemed the obvious choice from the start. The only annoyance with it-assuming it can be completed in LFR, which one would hope given that the Xavius step in Good Sumaritarian could be-is that as a four wing LFR, with the first wing likely not opening until January 24 and then the usual every two weeks later, we're looking at as late as March 7 for people who only LFR to get the mount. Might just have to break down and pug Normal then.
Miniature Winter Veil Tree has been updated to ilvl 835. However, the 7.1.5 PTR Version caps out at ilvl 830 and scales to your level at the time of looting.But the Árbol del Festival de Invierno en miniatura page shows it as a level 1 item. And the Winter Veil Tree you're linking to is the outdated WoD one.
Many people were led to believe it is a reward from the questline, putting subtle phrasing to just let ppl speculate it was the reward from the questline feels cheap. I put a subcription only to finish the questline and get the mount. I know that probably I should have speculated better but Blizzard from their side wasn't really open either as how to get the mount and people justly thought that 8 weeks waiting is worth of a mount.
It annoys me REALLY much that US get Squirt lining up with literally every damn Pet Battle Bonus Event (it did the last one too), but EU get another schedule, so it doesn't match up. Exactly the kind of bull#$%^ that makes it a bit too obvious that the devs care only about US, not EU. Just !@#$ off already...
You'd think we'd be used to getting cheated and lied to by Blizzard by now.
That's pretty $%^&ty. 9 weeks of useless quests for what? Just to wait another 2-3 more weeks just to do Nighthold and I bet you that quests cannot be completed in LFR. It's just one big gate behind 13 other gates for a mount that looks exactly like regular Mana Saber that most of us bought . Ty blizzard for wasting my time.
