Prior to the feature patch i used to run all the world events using the gw2stuff timer.

The feature patch introduced a fixed spawn time for most world events, however they forgot about the above mentioned 3 world events.

Does anybody know why these 3 are not included in the rotation ?

Kinda miss the old system, the fixed spawn times doesn't suit me very well, feels more like a chore now.

I believe that bosses are only being synched on megaservers.  If they are on any of those maps (I don't know where they are), it could be a bug.

Nope, All world bosses are being synced.
Jormag etc are not in a megaserver (yet), but they pop up on the exact sime time in every server.

But thats not my question.

In the rotation Arenanet posted they include all worldbosses (even Taidha Covington which wasnt being done very frequently prior to the patch) except Foulbear, Fire Shaman and the Dredge Commissar.
They just don't show up in the rotation but i think they can still be done.

Foulbear isn't forgotten by Arenanet, u need to kill him for one of the new traits (i believe its a engineer trait).
But in the current worldboss schedule these 3 don't come up and i kinda miss them.
Besides that i completely dislike the idea of having a scheduled worldboss rotation.
Some bosses i won't do anymore because they are beyond my playschedule.
I liked the old system a lot more than these fixed times.

The scheduled boss rotation is shit.
It does feel like a chore, and makes me not want to play.
There is no reason at all for it to be in a schedule.

I just came back to the game today after not playing for almost a year.  World Bosses were always my favorite thing to do.  I would have gwstuff up religiously and server reset was the best time of the day.  I'm not sure how I feel about these new fixed times because it seems like it takes away from the luster and excitement of chasing down WBs after server reset.

Are the changes actually better though?  With the mega-server change and people knowing exactly when certain WBs are available, can you actually get certain WBs done every day that were very difficult to get completed in the past like Taidha, Grenth and Balth?

How? I don't understand your reasoning.

The schedule is great because it makes events easier to organize and prevents bosses from clashing. It looks like everyone knows where to go and what to do now.

Taidha yes, though currently she has a bug that is imo the funniest since the Norn Mesmer bearclone glitch, purely for the chat content that it inevitably generates.

As for the temples, yes and no... there are regularly enough people to do them easily now, but since they are not on a schedule, it is very hit and miss as to whether they will not already be done when you enter the map, and they take a long time to reset. Personally, I don't fancy waiting around in Orr for the temples to reset when there is other content available at any given time. So I've only done a few temple runs since the patch, whereas I can easily do all the scheduled bosses within whatever window of time I log in.

As to the OP, I don't much care for the Commissar and Shaman, but I would put Foulbear in that empty slot between Megadestroyer and Shat, as it is an interesting event chain that offers a lot of enemies and loot.

I defnintelly miss OPs three and temples (5 gods + 1 arrah) as a world boss train stops.

Also, Zho'qafa Catacombs Eye and Rhendak the Crazed.

So there are 11 "bonus chest" events that are missing on timer.

They just don't show up in the rotation but i think they can still be done.

The bosses in the rotation are ones that have always spawned at specific times regardless of the state of the zone. Foulbear, Fire Shaman and Dredge Commissar spawn when certain conditions are met in each instance. Since there's now potentially many different megaserver instances per zone, its impossible (edit: under the current system, anyway) for there to be one global spawn time for those bosses.

Just like Orr temples.

Just like Orr temples.

Karka, Mordniir, Fire Elemental etc ... all have preevent chains, yet they were put on rotation succesfully.

Of course they can make them have spawn window and set up their prevents in motion.
