Sadly I don't have the energy to farm it 4 times for the armors. As the years go on I seem to have given up on something I enjoyed before.
Is it a bug that you don't learn the associate transmog for the cape in the other faction? So just because of the cape you need 8 max level characters.
Though I can equip 10 alts with the gear from this pre-patch, I gotta say it was a little bit frustrating to do the same everytime, a suggestion I made (but obviusly couldn't change due to time) is the pitch-black and darkened scourge stones to be account-wide, that could let to only farm it with a main, then send it to every alt and buy the gear, easy piece.
There were a couple armor classes I didn't have the warfront armor on yet, and I'd 100% rather camp the IC rares instead of touching warfronts ever again so this was a nice way to get them. At least this way I could read a book and socialize with the others waiting around (RP server).
I've killed bag man about every chance I have had on my main and no drop. I'm not going to have a chance to try on alts.
The Legion Invasion's event was great for leveling, this one is max level only probably due to fact that the leveling revamp was pretty recent and they'd prefer you level through that, also ghoul event is garbage that slows down questing and leveling anyways. Can't even do the other parts of the prepatch without a bunch of ghouls coming by to try to ruin it. Legion event also had incentive to do it on multiple characters not just because it was great for leveling, but because the event rewards unique weapon and armor appearances. The only new things here are the giest pet, the accursed keepsake and 34 slot bag. The broom isn't even a toy and the weapons from nathanos are just darkshore weapons and the argent gear is just first season pvp gear, and not even the elite version, just the minor version, and of course all the icecrown rares just have repeats of their loot tables from their original fight.TL/DR: Even if this event was extended there isn't a lot of incentive to do the event due to no new item appearances.
the accursed keepsake CAN drop but won't XD
What about Nathanos world boss?
If only the drop rates for some of the gear wasn't so ridiculous. Still trying to get the Plate Boots to complete the LK-25 H Warrior Tier set.
