The Absolutely Best Way to Decide Who to Give Raid Mounts To

Recommended Posts

We have one of the best and most creative methods of determining who a raid mount should go to (which honestly could be applied to any cosmetic or similar drop), as twitch_gsigns shared their guild's very creative way of replacing all other potential methods: a battle royale, of course.

While a simple dice roll may be the easiest and most direct way, and a loot council or similar rewarding a specific player to incentivize them,  the following is definitely the best and most fun. And as a side-note, I personally love it since to me, this is basically what WoW was about - players creating really fun content for themselves in the game instead of just doing whatever was "most efficient to progress"):

So, around 40 level 1 humans battling it out for a flying chicken on fire. Sounds about right! And while one of the rules is no funny business, I'm pretty sure there will be plenty of fun and funny moments as this great guild activity not only determines the next Al'ar rider, but also brings the guild ("nice" on BC Classic Remulos) closer together as well. We also may be getting some footage of the "Battle of Al'ar" from twitch_gsigns as well!

If only more players had guilds like this...

Or, or, this is just a suggestion, they make it so that IF the mount drops for anyone, it drops for them all...problem solved.

I don't have like 99% of the rare things in this game but I still think doing this ruins them.

There's so much stuff in this game it's OK for some things to be rare and uncommon.

I realize this was supposed to be facetious but yes that is exactly how you ruin a game. Make things easier, more accessible/ not have to work for them. Think through the implications.

      We have some hotfixes for BCC, featuring the infamous Kael'thas phase 3 threat bug, item restoration for disenchanted items and more.
      September 23 (Source)
      Burning Crusade Classic
      Items that are disenchanted should now be available on the Item Restoration support page to self-restore, as long as the materials gained are still present. Creatures and NPCs Some missing NPCs around the world are now visible again. Dungeons and Raids Fixed an issue where enemies, such as Kael’thas Sunstrider and Lady Vashj, could wipe threat from their primary target after mind controlling players. Quests Fixed an issue preventing Druids in Flight Form from using Skyguard Bombs during the “Bombing Run” quest and using Skyguard Blasting Charges during the “Fires Over Skettis” quest.

      Well, they've done it now, as the peaceful Naaru in the center of Shattrah has been provoked into violence! In a truly hilarious (and brilliant) series of events starting with a bug, players have managed to get the luminous A'dal to move from his pedestal and start a beat down on, well, an invulnerable Terokk.
      First let's take a look at the hilarity on action, then we'll talk about just how exactly it happened (as spotted by BradBlondeBeard) :

      So what the hell is happening? Well Terokk's Downfall quest is currently bugged so you can't actually kill Terokk once he uses his invulnerability shield (as a flare that removed it doesn't trigger. And, of course, players being players decided to use this to their advantage, as apparently Terokk also doesn't have a leash, they decided to bring him to Shattrah to see the sights. Except one of the sights was A'dal and he just started wailing on invulnerable Terokk. The kicker? If the player that brought Terokk in dies, the two NPCs will remain in an endless combat loot, since A'dal is ALSO invulnerable.

      Source: xNick98x.
      Now THIS is creative use of game mechanics and whoever thought of it should get rewarded somehow! Also, this isn't the first time A'dal got his hands dirty, as he's been known to eliminate all comers ever since the original Burning Crusade:
      As you can see, Terokk is VERY lucky to have his invulnerability shield! Is this the "eternal conflict" Malthael keeps going on about in Diablo?

      We have some significant bans being handed out for the recent exploit of a bugged quest in Burning Crusade Classic, as players are reporting some pretty hefty forced time-off being given out by Blizzard! In addition to that, the attempted quick fix for the bug caused even more confusion.
      The quest big itself was pretty simple and VERY obviously an exploit - normally you can get one Unstable Flask of the Beast in order to complete the quest, but due to the bug players could instead get an infinite amount. And of course plenty of players actually took those flasks and then sold them on the Auction House (or to a vendor)!
      Elblasc reported receiving a 6 month ban after having taken and sold THOUSANDS of flasks!

      Many other players chimed in and listed their suspension length and amount of flasks/gold received (also an important thing to note is that previous infractions might also have affected suspension length):
      you sold hundreds didnt u xd i took 9 and had no issues - pm_me_ur_gold_cap
      ...
      Made about 10gold... 24 hr ban. - alelock
      ...
      Sold for about 200g to vendor and did about 10 filled mails to an alt. Banned til sept 20. - monstertugg
      ...
      I made around 200g and got a week ban - Meeha
      ...
      Thousands for me, 30 day ban. Were any of you the Shaman on Sulfuras last night? - AfflictedFox In case you were wondering, the flask vendors for 23 silver, so it was a pretty risky move for not a lot of reward. We don't exactly know how much the Auction House ones were selling for on the various realms, but we did see some go for around 3 gold.
      Even more interestingly, the quick/temporary fix to the exploit was a very fast disabling of the method used to obtain the flasks, rendering the quest un-completable - which in turn caused other players to want to get the flasks from the Auction House so they can turn them in for the quest that way BUT the flasks were ALSO changed from BoE to BoP, making them useless for the quest!

       
      In any case it's a pretty good lesson to learn in general - if something is clearly broken and you can benefit from it... maybe don't abuse it!

      As the new phase arrived in Burning Crusade Classic, guilds immediately rushed into the two new raids and we have Tempest Keep already cleared by Salad Bakers , after the earlier Serpentshirne Cavern Vashj victory by Progress. Kael'thas has been defeated in only about an hour and 10 minutes after the patch/phase went live and we got the Classic World First! Let's take a look at the final boss, starting from the final face-off and skipping all the add stuff:

      Meanwhile both Progress and BEEF BAR were already in Tempest Keep after having cleared Serpentshrine Cavern before the Kael kill happened and are racing for the overall first spot (although Salad Bakers could also snag it, as they're immediately headed to SSC, but it's a bit of a stretch).
      Update: Progress managed to claim the overall win in the race, becoming the first guild to clear both SSC and TK (but got the final Kael'thas kill just a minute before BEEF BAR, who claimed second place)!
      Here's the Lady Vashj World First by Progress in case you missed it as well:

      As the new phase of Burning Crusade Classic arrives so the guilds rushed right into both raids and Serpentshrine Cavern has been cleared! Blizzard actually talked about how the raids were closer to their pre-nerf stages in a blue post today, but apparently they aren't that hard for the top guilds after all.
      Lady Vashj has been taken down, with only the Lurker Below skipped, as Progress moved to the final boss under an hour after the Overlords of Outland phase/patch came up! Let's take a look at the Vashj kill:

      The World second cam in a few minutes later, as BEEF BAR took the final boss down as well. Both guilds will be moving on to Tempest Keep now, so they can be the first/second to clear both raids. Kael'thas hasn't been killed so far, but it's coming soon as other guilds have already cleared a lot of the keep.
