SL World quests? No BM Weapons?

Unread post by Shade » Mon Jan 18, 2021 9:54 pm

Have any of you gotten bows from world quests? I am in BM spec and all I get from world quests are survival spears. Am I doing something wrong? Did I miss turning something on?

Don't think I've gotten any bows, I've seen a crossbow a few times on the mission table. :(

Actually, not spears, it’s mostly staves :p

Either way, completely useless. Maybe I have to go survival to be offered a bow :p

I see what you all say, I sometimes get a bow or a gun, and sometimes a polearm, I hope Blizz fixes that, if they won’t, I’ll use MM as the loot spec until it gets looked at

I've noticed this oddity. I have seen a crossbow like once, but its usually spears and staves. On my Fury warrior, its a sea of shields. My feral/guardian druid? Int Off-hands as far as the eye can see. I've been trying to do the conduit WQ just in case those spawn in place of a piece of gear, but not sure that works.

Funny coincidence, the Gormageddon WQ in Ardenweald is offering a nice bow upgrade for me today. This is the first bow I've seen in ages!

I've had a fair few, up to about 168. I think it's just luck.

On NA realms, the Bastion WQ "Flight Scool: Flapping Frenzy" offers a bow today. It was an upgrade for me at least :)

Yes, I've definitely had ranged weapons as rewards.

In NA there's a bow on offer from a WQ in Ardenweald right now. Sorry, I forget the name but it involves killing gorm. It had a nice mace for my shammy too.

Can confirm the same quest gives an incredible 2h mace for melee classes. There's also a quest to kill Drust for a 1h sword for melee as well. Today in NA is a magical time for weapons, especially if you've finished Renown grinding. The gorm quest weapons are item level 197, which is better than raid finder and just barely under normal. Every one of my level 60 characters got upgraded weapons today, no thanks in part to the game's horrendous RNG that favors giving everything but weapons.

Don't miss out on this opportunity!

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
Oh wait...you can't!

Name the game these characters are from, and I'll be amazed.

There's a nice bow on offer right now from the WQ "Calling the Champions" outside the Theater in Maldraxxus. This is for Americas/Oceanic.
