The weekly world boss rotation is currently random. We saw Withered J'm up for two weeks several times, but things will change in Patch 7.3.

Patch 7.3 introduces a fixed world boss rotation. No more waiting for Nithogg to spawn! Another great example is Na'zak, who spawned once since Legion launch and drops Recipe: Potion of Prolonged PowerRecipe: Potion of Prolonged Power (Rank 3) for Alchemists.

I feel it would've been better had they just put all the world bosses up at the same time but you could only get loot from one a week, that way you could have chosen which one you'd kill and while most would've just gone after Withered J'im for the arcano crystal trinket at least that would've been their choice rather than being forced to kill him for weeks on end because he was the only one up.

Legion hasn't even been out for a year and until March the world bosses were spawning on a set rotation.

Legion will be out a year come August but its still a great thing that they are fixing this though because I've been waiting to level my enhancement shaman until I can get a world boss up that drops the hidden skin.

People need to understand that Blizzard can't fix everything at once. They have more important things to worry about.

I agree 100%, this would be great

You know Legion hasn't even been out for a year yet, right?  Unless you count the beta, but I feel they focus on more important things than World Boss rotations during that period.

Good idea, but I feel in order to make sure there are enough groups for each boss, they'd have to make it so 3 or 4 are up per week rather than all of them.  That way, you have a better chance of getting the boss you want, but you're not stuck not getting a group due to the majority of people going for J'im.

Problem being that this shouldn't even have been an issue to begin with.

I have been saying this exact same thing now for months :D

Honestly Imo , and I know this would never happen for what ever reason, is to remove the concept of the "rare spawn" all together and have all rare elites or what ever up all the time so people dont wait weeks and weeks to ever see them, but just adjust there drop rate so it still feels rare but with out the wasted time camping, who wants to sit around for hours to weeks only to get nothing? This way they would have a 100% shot at the kill but the loot would still be rare to preserve what they where trying to achieve.

ok ok so it hasnt been a year, just feels like it I guess, the point was it is annoying to wait so long only to be disapointed cus the drop rates are so freaking low,  Also the bosses have never been on a set rotation, I have seen Withered jim up for 2 weeks in a row atleast 4 times, levantus was up 2 weeks in a row, twice, then it went back to withered Jim, then jumped to Frozen king for 2 weeks, back to withered jim then to Sharthos, and back to levantus.....need I go on? I know the rotation was supposed to be set but I have been playing since legion Launch and I only saw Nithog up maybe 4-5 times the whole time and he is the only one most people want.

I understand Completely that they cant fix every problem at once, all I ask is they fix some problems while there still relevant, don't wait till the content has progressed to where the word bosses are pointless, most people by now in legion have out geared there need for them or stopped caring all together, and I don't know what you consider "more important things to do"

But by now, people are not looking at the world bosses for loot - the complaints are generally about things that drop recipes, artifact appearances etc.

I'm certainly not praying for Nithogg to get an 860 piece of gear.

I'd hope with the amount of players there are that there'd be groups for each boss but at the same time I could easily see it being just Wither J'im groups all throughout the group finder, but I suppose that's why players can make their own or just ask guildies since a 5 man group can down most of the launch world bosses with ease at this point in time.

By rare elites do you mean the rares on Draenor that dropped the mounts like Silthide or Poundfist? Because if so, I can totally understand I stayed awake for 4 days straight waiting for Poundfist to spawn back in WoD simply because I wanted a gronnling mount but at the same time I can understand people getting upset over not getting what they want to drop from killing it if it is a once a day kill system or like Huolon who's mount drop is ridiculously low.

Yes most people are, I too have been waiting for Nithog for the fury appearance for a long long time now

Yes I was more so talking about any and all "rare spawns" but certainly the ones that have week long waits, I have a hunter that will probably never see Skoll in his lifetime to tame :( as I have never seen him alive or dead or even tamed by other hunters ( not to mention there are 6-7 hunters camping his spots at any given time) and I have been playing since Wrath's launch.

I completely understand, I used to main BM hunter when I started playing shortly after the release of the Sunwell patch up until the end of MoP simply because I just wanted to collect pets but that became a huge problem when cross realm zoning came to the game and I was competing with 6 other hunters for spirit beasts or other various rare spawn pets. Now I play a rogue so I can just sneak past everything when I don't feel like killing, like in LFR.

This is the most likely, for sure there would be the occasional group for other bosses, but it'd be packed with Jim and Nithogg, I'm sure.

But it does kind of reward the people that just sit there and wait it out until they finally get it.

Yeah I get that the wait is part of the challenge, I just wish it wasn't such a long wait or feel like I am just wasting that time instead of accomplishing something elsewhere.

You do kind of have to allocate your time though and, there was probably times in the past where others wasted time sitting there and waited for it. If you push for a specific pet, you're choosing to go for it as a priority over other things like achievements etc.

      Adois (Illidan-US) was Limit's fifth healer. He sent his other co-healers spoofed links that forced them to disconnect to get a raid spot for himself.
      Limit is currently at 10/11M in Antorus. Jeathebelle posted a series of interesting tweets today, revealing that one of their healers DDoSed other raid members to get a raid spot.
      Placeholder for tweet 940126010703597570 He also added that the Restoration Shaman was the worst players on the roster.
      Placeholder for tweet 940126081251725312 Limit only found out, because Adois started sending short links to other healers.
      Placeholder for tweet 940131880279662592 The only healer who had clicked the link had disconnected from voice chat, discord, and the game. Adois always miraculously came online to be available at the time of the disconnects.
      Placeholder for tweet 940132077936111616 Adois has been doing this for a long time to get a spot for Avatar and Kil'jaeden in Tomb.
      Placeholder for tweet 940132413254066176 Placeholder for tweet 940145295534510086 We wish Limit the best of luck and hope that this negative experience won't affect their Mythic progress in Antorus!

      A Mythic only phase video, many Aggramar kills and Method GM Sco explains why Argus isn't dead yet in detail.
      It's been a few days since we've checked in on the Antorus Mythic progress race, but not that much has happened since then as, thankfully, Argus is still alive! The big news is that a whole bunch of guilds got past Aggramar, resulting in us getting some footage of the Mythic-only phase of Argus the Unmaker, courtesy of Chinese guild Style War:
      You can also follow Style War live as they tackle Argus Mythic right here:

      Everything started with Finnish guilds Memento getting the World 4th on Aggramar, catching up to the standard top 3 of Method, Exorsus and Limit, followed by the above mentioned Style War, who managed to nab the Asia first as well. Bleached Bones (EU 4th)  were next on the Argus access train, followed by Alpha (Asia 2nd), ScrubBusters (EU 5th) and Easy (US/OC 2nd), and so we now have 9 guilds progressing on the probably final boss of Legion. We then have a large group consisting of 22 guilds that have downed Coven of Shivarra and are at Aggramar's door, with another 11 still fighting the Coven. Today should bring Method's Aggramar World First video, which will swiftly be followed by Limit's and perhaps Exorsus' own videos as well, so stay tuned for that.
      Today also saw Method's GM Sco reveal the very complex and intricate reason why they still hadn't killed Argus, as he explains in this video:
      As the second reset approaches, Method and Exorsus still have 2 days to make Antorus into quite an easy race, whereas Limit only have one to finish it all up before the significant influx of gear that is the 2nd round of clears. With so many bosses dying on the first and second days, it's at least a little bit of a relief that Argus wasn't that much of a pushover. Now let's see if he can salvage the entire raid by living a bit longer.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 5/11-Heroic 11/11-Normal Antorus, having killed every boss we've pulled.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: YES. We badly need RANGED DPS, but exceptional melee will be considered, particularly mail.
      Healers: MAYBE. We'd like a restoration/balance druid who can dps as well as they can heal and are okay being expected to play either role.
      Tank: NO. No current needs.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we operate as a raid team.
