@renrico I’m looking into the item source data. I have some proof that items are dropping that are listed as P5 on wowhead, but Blizzard said they’d be available in P1. For example, soot encrusted footpads, someone sent me information that their character has that item. I have this for several other p5 catchup items.
So we have all of those items listed as P1.
And then there is this thread, which is confusing to me. It seems like the sources are conflicting, saying catchup won’t be available until p5, and others saying it will be p1. That or I’m tired and my reading comprehension is shot.
If anyone has more information or proof these do / don’t drop, let me know (hard to prove they don’t drop, but you never know if there is another blue post out there somewhere).
