    Mechagon HC, endless runs. NO LOCKOUT

    (Not sure if bug or intentional)
    Today I finally decided to try out Mechagon HC.
    After doing one part of it I wanted to group up for the second part, however I noticed that I could queue them both up again.
    Currently I've killed King Mechagon 4 times in one day, getting loot everytime.

    So to test my theory I decided to do The Nexus HC in Northrend and also Freehold HC through "specific dungeon" tab.
    I got a daily reset lock on them both but not on either of the Operation: Mechagon parts.

    I'll provide 2 screenshots before and after I've done Operation Mechagon.

    This one showing before.

    and after.

    As you can see there is no lockout for Operation Mechagon on HC, specifically queued through "Specific Dungeons".
    A great way for farming the pets and mounts that drop from these dungeons.

    Please do tell if this was intentional and I'll delete this post.

    This might be intentional. This is happening since 8.3 hit live servers and Ive went into the dungeon to get the rank 1-2 essence. If you want to go for rank 3 you can try your luck nonstop but other than that there is no point in running it all day.

    I see, so that might be the reason for it not being locked out. However it is quite nice to spam the dungeons for pets/mounts if you're really really into that (like me).

    Just to be clear. This only works for operation mechagon, not for all dungeons, right? I havent had the desire to run the boring dungeons twice in a row on the same day yet.

    Correct, I did Freehold HC through Specific Dungeons after I had done Operation Mechagon a few times and I got locked for Freehold.

    This happened (and still happens) in Return to Karazhan too, so seems to be a bug tied to winged heroic dungeons. This was widely commented in the Jenafur secret discord, and Blizzard is well aware of it; in fact it was speculated if Mechagon would have this same issue before 8.3 released, which finally indeed had. To me seems to be a "won't fix bug", so safe to make use of it.

    The 10 instances per hour still applies, but Mechagon doesn't have a normal mode: it was released as mythic only in 8.2 and as 2-winged heroic in 8.3, same as happened with Return to Karazhan. You get a daily lockout for any heroic except these two, and by lockout this means loot lockout, because you could already enter any fresh instance being invited by other player. This also means that if you wait 30 minutes it resets as a normal instance, not in the daily reset.

    As far as I know, pets and mounts don't drop in heroic mode, at least these are not listed in the journal. This limits the use of this issue and probably that's why Blizzard let it be. In fact, it was more usefull in RtK as it allowed you to farm the Moroes follower.

    No lockout indeed, also you get no loot running it more than once. Unless you like roleplay, I don't see this being any useful.
