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.

      Two weeks ago, Blizzard started the PvP Like a Pro series, where they talk to world best Arena players. The first part was about finding the right partners and the second discussed team composition. Part 3 is devoted to effective practicing.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Part 3 - Practicing Effectively
      Minpojke of team Northern Gaming Blue has achieved rank one in Arena every season since 2011. His current squad has been playing together for more than two years, and came third in the Global Finals at BlizzCon 2016. With his help, we’ve built a five-step guide to help you practice like a pro!
      Synergy - Align Your Team
      Before setting out on your quest to the top, make sure you’re “aligned as a team,” says Minpojke. Like in any group activity, “it’s very important that everyone has the same goals and the same drive to do what it takes to win.” Make sure your team shares similar ambitions, and is aligned on how much effort will be required to achieve them. And of course, make sure you have similar gaming schedules so you can play and practice together!
      Atmosphere - Stay Positive
      It’s important to have a good atmosphere while playing. Minpojke says, “If you and your group get along and even become friends, you’ll like playing and actually learn more as well.” Be sure that the mood stays positive so that you can enjoy competing and improving together. It’s much easier to keep a team motivated if you’re all having fun—it’s a game after all!
      Stated more simply, Minpojke says, “It’s easy to win as a team—in the sense that it’s easy to be happy and celebrate—but if you’re capable of losing together, then you’ll be a great team.”
      Strategy - Know the Meta
      When it comes to making practice effective, Minpojke feels it’s a priority to stay up to date with the current meta. He told us that the best way to do this is to follow tournaments, high-level Arena streams, and the PvP Leaderboards to see which classes are on top.
      “It’s quite easy to keep up with the meta. Watch streams to see what the pros are playing, and track the ladder to see which classes and compositions are at the top. And don’t forget to follow tournaments to see the best comps shine.” Once you’re confident in what you want to play, it’s time to queue up! As FabsS discussed in our previous interview, Minpojke says that it’s important to set your win condition before the gates open. “Ask what you want to achieve as a team; will you focus on a lot of CC or try to draw out the game longer?” Since you know what matchup you’ll be playing against, you can start to ask these questions and develop your strategy.
      Analysis - Review Your Games
      If your setup supports it, Minpojke recommends recording as many sessions as you can—they’re much more valuable then looking at a damage meter. He says that the first objective is to see if you followed your game plan. Did you stick to it? Did it work? If the answer to either of these questions is no, you need to work on executing the plan better in future or possibly changing it up all together.
      Watching your own recordings is also a chance to highlight individual mistakes. As Minpojke says, “Always stay self-critical, and always look for ways to improve—you’ll notice pretty quickly your most crucial and common mistakes.” While Minpojke emphasizes that “losing is arguably the best way of learning,” he also reminded us that “it’s very important to recognize when you do well.” Think positively here: no one can play the perfect game, but there are often good takeaways to be emulated going forward.
      Reviewing recordings of his gameplay is a regular part of Minpojke’s routine, as well as discussing previous matches with his team between games while queueing. You can learn from a win as well as a loss!
      Execute - Implement Your Analysis
      After watching the replays, it’s time to set your goals. Decide what you want to focus on, and “make plans before you queue for a session.” If there was a specific matchup you were struggling with, you can discuss plans for how you’ll react to it next time.
      In some instances, it could be worth writing some notes, especially if you have many things to focus on versus many compositions. Minpojke equated it to studying for a test, “Practice it, and read it over and over until it sticks in your head.”
      Minpojke attended his first BlizzCon with current teammate Zunniyaki in 2013, finishing in second place. Northern Gaming Blue are the defending European Champions, and with nine BlizzCon appearances between their players, they’re one of the most experienced rosters in the field.
      You can watch Minpojke and Northern Gaming Blue compete live at gamescom from August 23-26. For the full details on when and where you can watch, head on over to our European Championship Finals blog.

      With 7.3 on the horizon, Blizzard did an official preview of new caster animations with videos and developer comments.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With patch 7.3 on the horizon, we thought it was time to share some updates to combat animations for several casting classes. Similar to what we did with the melee classes at the launch of Legion, these updates are all about priests, mages, Restoration and Elemental shaman, and some additional refinements to Restoration druid casting animations! We’re also continuing to work on even more enhancements for additional classes at a later point in development.
      A little over two years ago, we set our sights on revamping combat animations. The team has wanted to renovate it somehow, but what exactly does that mean? To determine the answer, our development leadership put together a small group of people to come up with a prototype of what we thought could use some cleaning up. You are currently experiencing the fruits of this work with the new melee animations. Our final goal was to create new melee moves that would make the game feel better, but not change how the game was played. During this prototype phase, we also came up with a plan for casters, but didn’t have time to put it into production until now. Let’s dig into some of the things we did.
      We hope you enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at the new caster visual updates. We had lots of fun creating all these animations and effects and look forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

      In Patch 7.3, Blizzard will be increasing the difficulty and rewards from dungeons across the board. The changes help keep dungeons relevant even at the end of the expansion.
      The following changes will be effective when Patch 7.3 goes live:
      Normal Difficulty
      Item level 845 (up from 825). Heroic Difficulty
      Item level 865 (up from 845). Mythic Difficulty
      Item level 885 (up from 865). Mythic Keystone
      Loot item level will be increased only after Antorus the Burning Throne raid opens. World Bosses
      Loot from old world bosses remains at 860. Loot from Broken Shore world bosses remains at 900. Loot from Argus world bosses in Greater Invasion Points is at 930.
