I just wanted to throw this out there before I put up my Frost Mage cheat sheet tomorrow, but for the past two weeks in a row, my raid weekly reset before the normal tuesday reset. This means that after handing in my raid quest early in the lockout period, I was able to get the quest again sometime later in the lockout period.
Hence, on my main toon, I’ve been able to do 4 weeklies in the span of two weeks, netting me a nice 20 Emblems of Frost and Triumph. However, I was unable to get the quest again for my other level 80 alts, since I ran them later on in the week.
I’m not sure if this phenomenon is an isolated incident, and if so, I’m not sure the reach of this phenomonenon and what servers or battlegroups are affected. But I’ve noticed this happen on my server, Winterhoof, which is part of the Whirlwind battlegroup. Likewise, Rilgon’s server experienced a similar thing last week. And it just so happens that Cenarion Circle is also part of Whirlwind.
So just a heads up. It’s happening from time to time, and it may happen again in the future, so here are a few ways to ensure that you make the most of it.
1. Do your raid weekly as early as possible within the raid lockout period. This will increase your chances of being able to pick up the quest again, should the quest reset happen before the lockout expires.
2. Don’t lock yourself out of both the 25-man and 10-man version if you don’t have to. If your quest does reset, it will be for the same boss. Having already killed that boss earlier in the week, the only way for you to do it again is to do it with
3. Watch out for weekends. The past two weeks, I’ve noticed that the quest resets happen during the weekend. I’m not sure whether or not this is due to activity increasing on the weekend, or other reasons, but it wouldn’t hurt to check the NPC on Saturday or Sunday to see if he has that yellow exclamation mark on his head again.
Until next time, see you on the other side of the internether!
