"World Event bosses (such as Ahune for the Fire Festival) will now be accessible through the Dungeon Finder. Players must use the Dungeon Finder to access these bosses."Ugh....

I know how annoying for all those 5,000 per minute trade chat spams to be gone and how annoying that I don't have to find my way to a lvl 20 instance to kill a boss that takes less time to kill 5 times than it took to walk there.These patch notes are almost entirely buffs, overdue changes, and things done for the sake of convenience to the player, and yet people will still find a way to complain, I don't get it.

Woah guys... quick to downvote someone without letting them explain. There is an entirely valid complaint here:"Players must use the Dungeon Finder to access these bosses."That is going to suck for the very many of us that can 3-man the content with guildmates. Now we are forced to use the Dungeon Finder? I mean, the ABILITY to use it is a godsend. But forced? What if only 2 other people even want to try?

What Lute said.

I bet you can use the 'teleport to dungeon' option without forming a random for it.
Lute - well now you can 3-man with 2 extra spawns...5 kills, no waiting.

Actually I just realized my own stupidity - I'm assuming then that this means 1 kill per queue...hmmm...

Just because you have to USE the dungeon finder doesnt mean it has to be random. Its a buff because you grab 5 friends and queue for Ahune and teleport in. If it works anything like the dungeon finder where you grab 5 friends and queue for a random then who cares. It just removes steps.If it doesn't work like that and I have to pug then I'll take it all back and join in the Ugh. I dislike pugs :P

There are probably NPC's with quests in the instance still for summons. It is possible that it is one summon per queue which would also sort of suck, but I've been in a group healing where people keep bringing in alts and get stuck doing holiday bosses for 2 hours so it sucks, but it could be worse. Guess we'll have to get more info from Blizz before we pass judgement one way or another...

@straw, yeah, that's a nice enough assumption except.. many of us only do it with friends because we have deals worked out if the mount drops, if x drops, etc. adding one or two random players into the equation with the mindset of cross-realm LFD pugs pretty much just adds two people who go "LOL MOUNT DROP MINE!!!!".there damned well better be a way around it. the two extra summons are nice, lowering your chance at getting the mount/item you want for someone who probably isn't going to pull their weight anyway? not nice.not to mention that a certain protadin solo artist i follow on youtube has solo'd the headless horseman before..

I have to agree with Raze, adding it as an option is great, but making it the ONLY option really is a downer. I wonder how the RP servers are going to handle this."We must make the trek from Stormwind to The Monestary to defeat this headless foe""But m'lord, we're already there...""What?!""We have arrived already in the graveyard no less""When?""Just now""What treatchery is this? We were in Stormwind less than 5 seconds ago!""Aye sir""Hmmmmmm... and where did these other people come from? I've never seen them before, and I know every Alliance citizen in Azeroth!" "They are from parallel universes sir""... I need to sit down"

You guys need to read the rest of the patch notes...The first time you get a holiday boss each day you will get a bag. EVERYONE will get this same bag. Anything that the boss MIGHT drop will be in THAT bag that EVERYONE in the group who is doing it for the FIRST TIME THAT DAY gets.So, you won't need to worry about rolling for that mount anymore. Or that helmet or sword, or whatever... It will be in the bag you get, or it won't... You won't roll...
