wow When Dying Doesn't Stop the Elite from Chasing You

Not even death will save you from this satyr. Also you can pull him to alive players.

 

It seems Diablo has finally made it into WoW and made good on his threat, in the form of a satyr in Val'sharah who really didn't want to let go of his prey, as redditor  Almlov found out.

Apparently you can even make him chase you to other players, where he will promptly attack them! Hopefully this will prove to Blizzard that we need ghostmounts. Or at least let Demon Hunters use their mobility skills in ghost form, who cares about the other classes!

And here's that classic Diablo line once again:

I thought I saw an epic ring that increases your movement speed when dead, but I couldn't find it when googling for this.

Demon Hunters can use their wings (and I think the double jump?) when dead.

We seriously need ghost mounts.  I have died a few times and had to walk a very long way back.  It would be amazing as a demonhunter if we could use all of our mobility skills.

I'm totally in favour of glyphs that allow us to use all mobility abilities when dead. Some classes have it, some don't. BRING THEM ALL.

Instead of Ghost Mounts, why not getting rid of the concept of running back to your body? Make us appear next to out bodies when releasing, much like in Diablo 3. Blizzard need to learn that running back to your body is not fun at all.

I gonna say that i has at least a little point - a long run can be boring, but it`s not so frustrating (unless you can`t reach your corpse by usual meanings (i`m looking at you, Suramar)), so with chilly music it can hush some rage from getting owned by tanks a little bit.

Big problem here with exploiting, skipping things etc.

You can fly up high, glide, whatever, drop down and die somewhere. Then simply ress next to your body. Also, if we appear next to our corpses like in D3, people can skip trash in dungeons etc.

There is also the fact that, compared to the MMO's it competed with in the early days...WoW's death penalty is barely a slap on the wrist. You lose a little currency (durability) and a little time. That's it. Your armor and weapons aren't unusable permanently broken when they hit 0%, you don't lose any experience, your items are safe in their bags.

I remember freaking out because someone had ganked me in UO and I thought I'd lose all my stuff. Thankfully, everything important was "insured" at an in-game bank or I would indeed have lost everything on my person at the time of death. Also thankfully, these days MMO's tend to have death penalties that are less likely to make keyboards fly out windows.

I remember my first time dying in the Wilderness of Runescape. I was lured out and killed, was just so gutted :(

Give nightelf wisps their ability to fly and you won't hear me complaining of dying ever again :)

Another reason to roll NElf? It would no longer be Alliance vs. Horde, just BElfs vs. NElfs

In Everquest you could go back a level if you lost enough experience, and in that game you had to run back to your corpse alive with zero gear.

And you know what? The players of Everquest probably thought it was normal at the time

That's because it was "normal" at the time.  Though the occasional level rollback sucked hard.

Back on topic:

My only question at this point is this a bug or working as intended?  Because that's kind of messed up.

I believe it was indeed a bug.

      In addition to pets coming with the Deadmines Pet Battle Dungeon, the latest 7.2.5 PTR build added two pets that drop from the Time-Lost Wallet inside the Deaths of Chromie Scenario and our friends over at WarcraftPets seem to have discovered a new fairie dragon pet possibly from Argus.
      Ageless Bronze Drake (Ageless Bronze Drake)
      The pet is a miniature version of the Reins of the Bronze Drake mount and has a unique Rewind Time ability "This particular drake has oddly retained its age throughout its travels, but its size has certainly changed."
      Bronze Proto-Whelp (Bronze Proto-Whelp)
      The pet's a miniature version of the Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake (Storm Peaks) mount and comes with the an ability to bend time "The Bronze Proto-Whelps have been discovered only in the most peculiar of timelines."
      Sun Darter Hatchling - Faerie Dragon Pet
      Quintessence from WarcraftPets suggests this pet may be from Argus as noted by its description. If you try to paste the item in-game (Patch 7.2), it seems to coincide with a mount tagged named as "REUSE", however 7.2.5 Mount Journal lists the pet and so does the in-game tooltip.

      Sun Darter Hatchling drops from Oddly-Colored Egg (Source N/A) "This unique species of faerie dragon is not usually found on Azeroth."

      Nether Disruptor is again up in both regions and with Seal Your Fate, you can get a free Seal of Broken Fate each day the Nether Disruptor is active.
      The good news is that these bonus seals go beyong the normal 3 limit. All you need to do is accept the quest Fate Sealed from Maggie "Slither" Masterson (coords: 41.19 // 64.46).
      World Boss Apocron

      The permanent Nether Disruptor perk (Epic Hunter) always unlocks a Broken Shore World Boss that drops item level 900 loot and this time, it's Apocron. Below is the loot he drops.

      Four new bosses were added to the Broken Shore. Base item level of their loot is 890+. Old world bosses remain untouched with 860+ loot. The bosses will spawn when the Nether Disruptor's active.
      Patch 7.2 World Boss Loot Tables
      Below you can find loot from the new world bosses. We don't know yet if they share respawn timers with existing world bosses.

      Several Serenity members joined Method recently, but it doesn't seem to be the end. Slootbag confirmed on Twitch that some Serenity members (Naguura included) are forming a new guild for Mythic Tomb of Sargeras progression on Twisting Nether (EU - Horde), but haven't decided the name just yet.
      According to a reddit post, they won't be competing for world firsts and instead, they're looking for a place in the Top 10 - 20. Time commitments will be 50% less than what they were in Serenity and each raider only needs to maintain 2 geared characters (down from 5).
      The guild will still be hardcore and raid 7 days a week (6 hours a day) during the first weeks of ToS progression. The roster's only missing healers and recruitment may be open soon.

      This week's 7.2.5 PTR patch added a new tracking quest (fix?) for the undiscovered Shoe Shine Kit vanity item.
      Shoe Shine Kit is one of the few items that haven't been discovered yet and it should be available in the game since Legion launch. Every Sunday, Sheddle Glossgleam leaves the toy store (2nd floor of Photonic Playground - 44, 47) at 12 AM (PST) / 3 AM (EST) realm time and goes drinking in Legendermain Lounge. During his absence, a chest spawns, but nobody managed to open it yet. The WoW community has cracked down mysteries far harder than this, which is why I believe the chest couldn't be opened until now and Blizzard stealth fixed this in the latest PTR build by adding a new tracking quest related to the toy - Shoe Shine Kit Tracking Quest.  Notice the different ID in the old quest -  Shoe Shine Kit Tracking Quest.

      Comment from discussion Still a mystery: Every Sunday morning (tonight) Sheddle Glossgleam leaves behind a chest that nobody has unlocked.
