No, they are permanently disabled, kaput, nada, zip, zilch, negative, nope, done, history.
You can however, like me, use the gear for its gem sockets and its enchantableness, meaning you can enchant the old stuff.
I wouldn’t bother with TW Firelands raid, it’s ridiculously overtuned and the hotfix patch notes on March 2nd…which updated players health, damage, etc… to compensate for the essences and corruption gear.
Meaning, they nerfed us while in TW, as if you weren’t nerfed enough before.
In short, time metrics. They ruined what a good raid Firelands TW could have been, I completed it once or twice. I think this is the 3rd time it’s been around.
I’ve tried more than several groups or have been in anyway, we do trash, which takes a long time in itself. Get to Beth’tilac, drones die slowly even with twinks and end game 120’s. Along with Beth’s health pool and increased damage over time.
It’s a sad time for WoW when people are crabbing already about Shadowlands changes, and now…things I thoroughly enjoy, like TW events including BT and Ulduar, it takes longer…again. I’m not opposed to the length for the dungeons, but just fear for the difficulty in the raids in BT and Ulduar. As if people needed a further reason to not run them. Sad.
Not to mention, the world IRL. Don’t have money, places are open, have money, places are closed and or don’t want to go out.
It’s rather debilitating and causes mental physiological issues when you think…“only in America, wait the world, can this be real? shutdown, etc…” and now they made FL TW hard AF, one of my fav things to do.
It’s like…gee, I’d love to go to the store for some protein bars and not get ripped off by price gougers or some giardiniera.
I know it happened in 1919, but that was 100 years ago and we’ve gone through multiple wars, STILL AREN’T PREPARED for the careless actions of a particular country / person.
Japan did it the best by saying…“no, they aren’t ready to go home, we don’t have test results.” Did the officials who chartered the planes to bring them home care? no.
Ridiculous, think I’m going to get a trampoline to rage flip on.
