Elsweyr world bosses

Please tell me your next zone will NOT have world bosses despawn after a set amount of time.

Too many times after forming a group I'm about to pull and the boss disappears. PLEASE, ZOS, do not do this again.

    What zone? I don't think I have ever seen that happen.

    Thannar disappears before my very eyes almost every time I get this daily. I post in zone for help when he’s up... then when people come I am left standing there with no boss.

    I've only seen this happen when someone attacks the WB and either dies or runs away.

    I think people realize that they will despawn and do it to grief anyone that comes along behind them.

    happens with all wb in Elsweyr.

    I meanwhile skip the Kee'va (Terrorbird) for this reason.

    Zalsheem usually has enough players around, so I wait there.

    Swordmaster, Graveprowler and Boneweaver I can solo.
    Also 2 criminals depending on my toon, if not I skip as there are not that many players around.

    I try to solve the bosses with less players around at primetime, but skip them at night as they often disappear while waiting for the rare moments when other players arrive.

    That's happened twice with the terror bird boss for me. He despawned while I was waiting for a few group members to show up. He respawned again after a long while.

    Is this intentional?! Why on earth would you do that?! Respawn times are a deep pain already.

    It’s all utterly ridiculous.

    I've seen this happening a couple of times. It wasn't pleasing to wait even more.

    Craglorn is doing it again too.
    They had fixed it but it reverted with one of the updates

    I've seen it happen with Wily Keeva, Vhysradue and maybe others. It has nothing to do with pulling and running away. It will happen while you are just waiting for more players to arrive.

    It can't be intentional; I can't fathom a reason that would make sense.

    Elsweyr. I've never seen it in any other zone -- bosses outside Elsweyr always seem to hang around until killed, and then they hit a respawn timer.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno any chance you can see if this is intended, or a bug? I'd not noticed it in Craglorn, but apparently it happens there too.

    Not sure but bosses in Cyrodiil could also despawn, if there weren't any players around to kill them in time.

    Had the same problem in Summerset a few times. Definitely with the mudcrab queen, I think gryphons and some other WBs too. Stood there with a group and was waiting for the last player to arrive and... gone. So the whole group needed to wait for it to respawn.

    It happened to me with Walks-like-thunder in Murkmire this week.

    This does happen in Craglorn when someone tries to solo a boss and dies then runs off. The boss will after a while decide there is no one to fight and go away.

    This hasn’t happened to me yet but if this is indeed how it’s designed then that’s very *** poor design.

    Seen it happen several times myself. As far as I can tell, all it takes is for someone to get close enough to aggro the boss. When they run the boss will disappear, and I'm stuck there waiting ages for the respawn.

    This is still happening and it's really quite vexing I must say.
