    Invasion gear (the ones giving bonus item level) are BiS, and will be gone in 12 days

    SADLY. I wish they were staying tbh, but it isn't really needed to stay in after Legion hits.

    I mean, why are the invasions stopping just because we stepped foot on the broken isles?

    For any level above 10, legion invasion gear is BiS. At 10 it's better to have the vers from bg gear.

    Lore wise, I believe it is because we have slowed the Burning Legion from their ever-increasing invasion, and now we are going to where the largest pocket of them snuck through before we pushed them back. Though in a true, living, war, they would still get through randomly to areas like Deadwind Pass and Winterspring no matter how hard we reinforced the Crossroads or Sentinel Hill.



    Edit: adding more

    I think that as a gameplay mechanic, it kind of deters us from playing our mains in the Broken Shore. So, as a gameplay mechanic, it makes sense to remove it to force us into the expansion zones. Though lore wise and content wise, they should honestly make them random for each zone - kind of like the Deathwing event where he killed a bunch of people randomly.

    It would make more sense to allow it into every zone in Azeroth except maybe Vash'jir. This would just turn it into a fun way to not exclusively quest or afk in SW/ORG for dungeon ques. It would make sense for this route to work exclusively as that zone's last level (i.e. Elwynn was like 9 or 10) for the mob levels and you have to be in range to get into the event. But then comes the problem of it takes too long...

    I honestly would like it to turn into a smaller system for every zone closer to Rift's Rift events.

    Except in instanced PvP you want item level.

    Correct, but I believe he meant wpvp/pve. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt :p
