Hi @ll,

with the new expansion set in old Azeroth it would be ace to bring back a few outdoor world bosses. They've always been so much fun.

You could also implement e few epic and ultra-long quest chains that evolve around those bosses.

Thanks for reading,
Grave

There aren't any immediate plans to add new outdoor raid bosses, but plans do change from time to time. We like the idea of them, the fear of walking into one (Doomwalker comes to mind!) is always good for keeping players on their toes!

We want to make sure that we put an outdoor raid boss in place for the right reasons though, not just because we can. There are also many factors to consider when putting in place such an encounter, since people like to spoil things for others. Those people know who they are and know what I mean (Doom Lord Kazzak, anyone?).

Q u o t e:
People fighting over the boss is the whole point of outdoor bosses compared to instance bosses. It's what makes them different.
When your own faction is responsible too for griefing attempts, we don't consider that to be:

A: The point
B: Fun (especially with no PvP resolution)

We're not convinced we don't want to add more outdoor Raid bosses, but like I say, we want them to be there for a real reason, as well as having considered ways to prevent raids being cheesed (too much!).

Q u o t e:
Then provide people a way to resolve this with PvP: make it so that people getting in combat with a world boss get flagged so that they can attack and be attacked by people even from their own faction, as long as they are in a different raid.

Or simply make the area where the world boss is a free-for-all pvp area like the gurubashi arena.

But you won't do this because mixing PvE and PvP is taboo.
These are the kinds of things to be considered, as well as other avenues of course.

...and anyhow, isn't Hogger enough of an outdoor raid boss? More, more, more! It's all people want! ;)
