I enjoyed it for the most part and decided to pursue the gear to have a haste set. Things have died down indeed! Two days ago, I went to Azshara and found all 4 summoners up, 3 rare elites and the other usual mobs mixed in with them. I got my pants from the 3rd elite, but I killed 11 of the elite shadow / summoners that day and not a single chest piece dropped (of any flavor)... Bugged?I rounded out the day hitting exalted with the Argent Dawn and haven't gone back - gotta love being the only person running around with an AD trinket for scourgestones.Now i'm getting all these letters in the mail saying I should visit some of the scourge's survivors... but Joanna White(something) in the war quarter of UC just wants to sell me some crap... She doesn't want to talk about the scroll I got in the mail. WTF?!

The people in the letters will now sell you Friendship Bread and Freshly Squeezed Lemonade.To paraphrase wowhead:Blizzard removed the related dialogue from NPCs for some reason. However, one of the NPCs Elissa speaks to mages, as they have two actions availble ( mage training, and the quest foods). What she says is:Ah, you're the one who found the letter.Thank you for the... news, I suppose, about my family.You're welcome to what food and drink I can offer.

Exactly my reaction when I found that I couldn't talk to them but they wanted to sell me low level food. First I thought it was bugged, especially since I still had the letter. Now I realise it's 'working as intended'. FAILAlso I grabbed 130 runes on the second day at Tanaris during off hours grinding with a prot pally (I was a resto druid healing and AoEing the mobs while he held aggro). Grabbed 1 piece on the first day, another on the second day and bought the other 2 to complete the set.

It is not exactly working as intended; it is an unexpected side effect of the change Blizzard made a way back to how dialogue works. It used to be that everyone talked to you, and you then had to click again to buy something, instead of going directly into the barter menu as it does now. For the most part, this wasn't a big loss, as no one really had much to say, but it is apparent Blizzard did not go through and retest this portion of the Scourge Invasion event.

Somebody reported here that asked a GM about the missing dialogues... it seems that he responded "something will happen, but you have been too fast"WTF? Too fast? Blizzard, you send me letters telling me "go to see this NPC" and I am too fast to do it?I assume it's a bug and the letter shouldn't have been sent till the invasion is over...
