So I'm gunna assume that Eitrigg is the final boss in the Alliance version of the scenario and I'm wondering if he cannon dies there? If so does that mean Trollbane or who ever that guy was is cannon dead too? I liked the banter between them when he calls Eitrigg a "greenskin" XD

It alternates everytime the scenario is unlocked. Sometimes you fight Liadrin whilst Turalyon is the Commander. Sometimes it is Rokhan and you are being lead by Muradin. They probably won't canonize any of their Warfront deaths (since all six can technically be killed and both sides can win). Though if they choose a canon outcome for the Warfront, the Alliance will probably win; assuming that they really are giving Kalimdor to the Horde and EK to the Alliance.

My warfronts must be broken, it's been Eitrigg every time I've queue'd up.

Everytime the scenario unlocks. This time around it will always be Eitrigg, but it might be Liadrin or Rokhan next time.

worst part of them doing it this way is even more gating with future warfronts, since we all have to wait to kill two different bosses to get the boat upgrade to collect iron/wood faster :)

Yeah, I'm not happy about that. I get that they need to make content last, but BfA seems to be riddled with a lot of time gating.

This is the effect that the warfront timegating had on me:

"ooh, I can't wait, this will be so cool!!"
"oh, the Horde has this for how long? No way! Oh..."

*waits two weeks*

"Was there something I was supposed to do with that warfront thing?"
"Oh, they want my stuff...for a week...ok, no, I'm already broke"

*waits a week*

"Oh, it's finally time with that warfront garbage? Eh, maybe later"

I've only run it enough to collect a full set of 7th legion armor for transmog. I'd rather farm Island Expeditions for AP than run this particular Warfront as things sit.

Sorry but I am little confused at this I want to farm that rare for the donkey mount the way I am reading this is it resets every time a faction takes control am I right meaning right now Alliance has it so I go kill it and say get nothing do I have to wait till either Horde take it or Alliance takes it again to farm again it isn't like other rares or is it.

Sorry for being confused.

It depends on your faction. If you're Alliance, you can go and kill them again (just once). If you're Horde, you have to wait until you take control again.

Yeah, you have to wait until they take it again. You can kill a rare and get a chance at loot once per cycle.

So it's going to be around one try per month, with factions alternating every fortnight.

Happy to help, Iowa :)

That's correct. I wish it was more often, but Blizz seems fine with how it is currently.
