Warcraft Avatars, Feb 20 Hotfixes, Transmog Run Loot Rules, Forum MVPs, Xavius Solo

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 13:21:00 +0000

Challenge Rift - Week 35 Vote for your Favourite Community Created Basement Dwelling Cards Battle.Net Client Update - Warcraft Avatars The Battle.Net client was updated to have more Warcraft avatars for players to choose from as their profile picture. Patch 7.3.5 Hotfixes - February 20 Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Classes Warlock (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator) Fixed a bug that allowed Demonic Gateways to be placed in unintended spots. Class Halls Argus missions that award Blood of Sargeras now cost 600 more Order Hall Resources. This will not be correctly reflected in the Legion Companion App until its next version update. Developers’ notes: Completing these missions with bonus rewards previously returned more Order Hall Resources than they cost. Rather than reduce their yield, we’ve increased the cost of the missions so that players with ample Order Hall Resources can convert them to tradeskill materials. Dungeons and Raids Pit of Saron The health of most enemies in Pit of Saron has been reduced by 50% in Timewalking. ItemsIf you have all Legion Legendary items for your class, consuming a class-specific item that generates a Legion Legendary item will now always generate a token for another class.Heritage of the Ren'dorei now contains the Ren'dorei Cloak. NPCs Hatecoil Spitespeaker should no longer instantly respawn.Princess Poobah should no longer unexpectedly stop offering quests. Quests "The Emerald Dreamcatcher" is no longer weekly.The starting location for "Teldrassil: The Burden of the Kaldorei" should now correctly be displayed on the map.Mature Silkwing again have a chance to softly drop Iridescent Wings for “The Softest Wings”. Loot Rules for Transmog Runs Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Since the Patch 7.3.5 change to use personal loot rules in leveling dungeons, we’ve heard a lot of feedback from Transmog hunters concerned about how this has affected the ability to collect appearances from older content. We hear you, and agree it’s a problem, so we’ve been working on a more robust solution for Battle for Azeroth. Once these updates are implemented, entering a dungeon or raid that is trivial for you (i.e.: your character is 10 or more levels higher than the dungeon or raid’s intended level) will activate a “legacy loot mode.” That loot mode will work like this: The number of items dropped by bosses will be the same as it would have been if you were in a full party. So if you’re in a 5-player dungeon, you’ll get 5 players’ worth of loot.For raids with a flexible raid size (such as Raid Finder), this will act as though there were 20 players in the raid.All items on the loot table will have a chance to drop, not just the ones that are designated for your spec.If you have multiple players in the group, the loot will be split among those players, but be tradeable. For example, if you’re clearing with one other player and kill a boss that should drop 4 items, you’ll each be able to pick up two items and trade them between each other if you like. While the personal loot change was a key part of what allowed us to expand leveling dungeons to encompass a wider range of levels, and we’re happy with it in that environment, we recognize that it’s not a great experience for those who enjoy clearing older content for transmog, and hope that these changes will make that more enjoyable once they’re complete. Thanks again for all of the feedback! WoW MVP Program - Recruitment Now Open! Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Hey all!

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 21:53:00 +0000

Upcoming Changes to the NA WoW MVP Program Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Hey guys! Over the past year we've had it on our plate to breathe a bit of life in the MVP program for World of Warcraft (you may have seen me mention it here and there, and I know the MVPs have been eagerly waiting for movement on this). After nearly a year of discussions, we're finally ready to start moving forward with a refresh of the MVP program for World of Warcraft! Most of our active posters here know that when the MVP program was founded, it's goal was to recognize active forums poster who contributed to our community through things like high-quality class guides or assisting and guiding new players with helpful information. While being active and posting in a constructive manner will still be something we take into account, we realize that we now live in a world with Icy Veins, Wowhead, Reddit, and numerous other communities that didn't necessarily exist at the onset of this project. This leads our MVP group to not being able to actively fulfill it's original purpose on our singular forums platform. All of this led us to think we needed to be realigning the purpose of the program slightly, as we want to more actively empower the group to engage in discussions with us on various community issues, happening on the forums and in our greater community. This would also include working to provide insight into community and gameplay feedback they may see around the community, with direct conversations between the WoW community team and the WoW MVP group as a whole on a regular basis, much as we do in our conversations with folks on Reddit, Discord, etc., something that hasn't been utilized to its best. To facilitate this, we will be moving the WoW MVP program to an application-based recruitment system, which will address a few concerns we have currently with the recruitment process, as well as letting us asked targeted questions to candidates during certain recruitment periods, and hopefully widening the audience. We expect to open recruitment early next week, after the President’s Day holiday, so be on the lookout for a thread if you're interested! Of note, these changes DO NOT affect any region or franchise outside of World of Warcraft in North America, and these changes also do not apply to our awesome Customer and Technical Support MVPs who do great things. We look forward to getting to work on the program and hearing your feedback! I hope this doesn't mean Crepe is losing his MVP status. I notice community MVPs are not listed as being spared these changes. We're asking the MVPs to reapply for the process, but we will be keeping everyone who is able to meet the newer standards going forward! I wouldn't expect any of the familiar faces you know to go away unless it's their own choice. Combat Log Tool - Wipefest Wipefest is a web tool that uses data from Warcraft Logs to display insights and timelines for raid encounters. Insights aim to answer common questions that you might have about each pull, such as "Who is soaking Annihilations on Garothi Worldbreaker?", or "What pod rotation did we use on Antoran High Command?". The timeline aims to provide a concise overview of the important events within a fight, such as major boss abilities, big cooldowns, and deaths. Timelines can be filtered easily, letting you quickly dig into certain mechanics, such as Fusillades, Fel Shields, and healing cooldowns, or if people used defensive cooldowns before they died. You can als[...]



Feb 14 Hotfixes, Blue Tweets, This Week in WoW, Allcraft 30

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 23:18:00 +0000

First Look At Season 13 Boss Battle Royale 2 is this Week's Tavern Brawl! XP From Dungeons Hotfix Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Hi all, From WoW’s earliest days, we’ve always had to take steps to limit experience gains for characters when grouped with someone of a drastically higher level. We recently became aware of a bug introduced in 7.3.5: a side-effect of the vastly expanded creature scaling was causing the logic to break when awarding XP in some situations. Earlier today, we applied a hotfix to creature experience that corrects this issue. At the same time, we have significantly increased the experience awarded through queuing for random Normal dungeons from Classic through Draenor content. Running dungeons at the appropriate should feel rewarding, whether as a complement to or even an complete alternative to questing. As always, we appreciate your feedback and will continue to keep a close eye on the pacing of the leveling experience in 7.3.5 and beyond. Patch 7.3.5 Hotfixes - February 14 Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Achievements The achievements "Westfall & Duskwood Quests" and "Loch Modan & Wetlands Quests" can now be completed on multiple characters. Classes Druid (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator) Stellar Empowerment from multiple Druids should now correctly apply to the same target. Items Cauldron of Battle and Big Cauldron of Battle again work as intended. Mounts Shu-Zen the Divine Sentinel’s size is now more directly proportional to the scale of a given player race.In Timewalking, Yogg-Saron now has a chance to drop Mimiron's Head if defeated with no Keeper assistance. Player versus Player Demon Hunter (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator) Reverse Magic now reverses all magic dispellable effects on friendly nearby targets. Quests Players can now accept and complete the quest “Ancient Mana” while First Arcanist Thalyssra is starving. User Interface Access to the mobile Auction House has been restored. Blue Tweets Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment Buried within the data mines, a dark shadow stirs, its breath a bitter chill that brings with it promises of riches... and promises of destruction. A cry rings out, distant but clear. A signal of shock and fear, met with lost hope, and somehow... relief? We must dig deeper. (WarcraftDevs) We apologize for the typo in the previous tweet. It was meant to say: the Alpha is currently very early in development and much of what you're seeing is purely experimental. Feedback is valuable, but keep in mind that things will be changing rapidly. (WarcraftDevs) This Week in WoW History We're taking a look back at old MMO-Champion posts and World of Warcraft news that occurred during this time in previous years. Break The Trees Singer/songwriter Sharm was featured in a blue post after the release of her latest song “Break The Trees”. The verses of this song were comprised of talent names from Warcraft. Sharm has been creating WoW Parody videos for the past 10 years and is still active on YouTube. Iron Man Challenge 2012 marked the beginning of the Iron Man Challenge. This became one of the most popular challenges to date after a few players gave it a shot. The objective is simple - reach level cap. However, doing it within the confines of the rules is the difficult part. Players are not allowed to use and talents, class specializations, professions, enchants, stat-improved gear or the assistance of other players. The most important rule is that if your character dies at all the challenge is over. Patch 5.4.7 This late Mists of Pandaria patch began the preparation for the new expansion Wa[...]



The Mythic Dungeon Invitational Is Back: Get Ready for the Proving Grounds

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 18:14:00 +0000

The Mythic Dungeon Invitational Is Back: Get Ready for the Proving Grounds Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) As we announced during our WoW Esports live stream, Season 2 of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational is almost here! It’s time for the best dungeon teams from around the globe to show us what you’ve got. To kick things off, we wanted to share some additional details on this season’s Proving Grounds. Everything You Need to Know About Proving Grounds Feb 27 - Proving Ground Week 1 – Raging, Volcanic, Tyrannical Americas: February 27 at 7 a.m. PSTEurope: February 27 at 11 p.m. PSTChina: February 28 at 3 p.m. PSTAPAC: February 28 at 3 p.m. PST Mar 6 - Proving Ground Week 2 – Teeming, Explosive, Fortified Americas: March 6 at 7 a.m. PSTEurope: March 6 at 11 p.m. PSTChina: March 7 at 3 p.m. PSTAPAC: March 7 at 3 p.m. PST Like last season, we’re kicking things off with a period we call Proving Grounds, when teams come together to prove they’ve got what it takes. This year’s Proving Grounds will be similar to last year’s, with a few slight changes. The Proving Grounds period kicks off for the Americas region on February 27 at 7 a.m. PST (10 a.m. EST). Week 2 begins March 6 at the same time, and the Proving Grounds ends March 13 at 7 a.m. PST (10 a.m. EST). Teams on Oceanic realms will also use this time frame for submitting scores from the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. This will ensure that their runs line up with the appropriate Mythic Keystone affix rotation cycles. During the two-week Proving Grounds period, you’ll form a group of five friends and tackle the highest difficulty Mythic Keystone dungeons you can handle. Your goal is to complete a total of five level 23 Mythic Keystone dungeons over those two weeks. Keep in mind the following: Your group must have the same five player characters for all five runs; you can’t swap in another character.Duplicate dungeons won’t count toward your runs, so make sure you tackle a variety.Runs must be completed within the Keystone timer to count (the timer varies by dungeon). Once your group has completed the dungeons on the required difficulty, you’ll need to choose a team captain to register your team. Check back on this post when the Proving Ground period ends to learn more about where and how to submit your best time. If your team clears the dungeons, submits their times by the deadline, and meets the requirements (regional eligibility, accounts in good standing), you’ll receive an invitation to the Mythic Dungeon Invitational tournament realm for the next stage of the tournament: the Time Trials. We’ll post the official rules for the tournament soon, but in the meantime, make sure that you and your team members meet our regional eligibility requirements: Americas – This region includes legal residents of the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, and Argentina, excluding the U.S. states of Arizona, Connecticut, Maryland, North Dakota, and Vermont, the Canadian province of Quebec, and where otherwise prohibited or restricted.Europe – This region includes legal residents of Algeria, Austria, Bahrain, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Morocco, Norway, Poland, Portugal, the Republic of Moldova, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, State of Qatar, Sweden, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Ukraine, Tunisia, Turkey, and the United Kingdom, excluding where otherwise prohibited or restricted.China – This region includes legal residents of the People’s Republic of China, excluding where otherwise prohibited or restricted.Asia-Pacific – This region includes legal residents of [...]



Hunter Pets in Battle for Azeroth, Auction House API Update

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 06:40:00 +0000

Battle for Azeroth Alpha - Build 26032 Hunter Pets in Battle for Azeroth Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) As we’ve kicked off the Battle for Azeroth Alpha, we’ve seen a lot of discussion about the new way Hunter pets work. While we’re by no means finished, we have reached a place where we want to share some insight into our plans and explain some of what you might see in development as Alpha continues. Our primary thoughts on pets going forward: Move past the idea of a DPS/Tank pet specialization - In Battle for Azeroth, all pets will have equal damage, health, and armor. All can tank or DPS equally. Choosing to put a particular pet into “Tank spec” feels outdated, so we’re going to shift all pets to a setup that will work as though they’re specced into both Ferocity and Tenacity (in Legion terms). All offensive and defensive passive abilities such as Blood of the Rhino and Combat Training will be rolled into every pet by default. Charge will be removed, and all pets will have Growl and Dash/Swoop. Some spec-specific actives will be redistributed where appropriate. We are keeping the names Ferocity, Tenacity, and Cunning as the broad groups that all families fall into. They are no longer changeable, and each has a new passive and active ability that are useful in almost any situation. Maintain and/or reinstate pet family uniqueness - Pet family flavor is part of what makes selecting a companion unique and special, and want to emphasize that even more. A special ability has been added to all pet families that were missing one. Exotic Pets still have their unique ability (like Surface Trot) in addition to a new ability. Pure flavor abilities that many pets have are also staying like Trick and Rest.Expanding access to Bloodlust, and the removal of Battle Res from pets - In Legion, all Hunters have access to Bloodlust and Battle Res, but they only exist among a handful of families, which leads to very narrow options. To that end, Bloodlust will be available on roughly a third of the tamable pet families rather than just two. In a world where we are proliferating abilities to many families, our first inclination was to add Battle Res to a separate third of those families. After seeing that landscape, it felt odd to fully embrace Resurrection as part of the Hunter kit. Further, moving into Battle for Azeroth, we are solidifying Bloodlust and Battle Res as the strong shared cooldowns that a group can bring - one offense, one defense. In that world, Hunters having access to both of the super powerful group benefits didn’t feel appropriate. A variety of pet ability packages - It’s important to acknowledge that some hunters want to maximize their impact with their pet, while others are collectors who want a pet for every occasion. There should be opportunities to cleverly swap from one pet to another in a given situation and reap the benefit. At the same time, the Hunter who has grown attached to their spider named Fluffy should feel effective across the game. We’re going to try to ensure that every pet package is attractive, with a unique combination of benefits that work in many situations. Here are some specifics of the Battle for Azeroth design for Hunter pets: There are currently 51 pet families, and each family will be categorized as Ferocity, Tenacity, or Cunning. Each will have an active and a passive, and the active will be a Hunter class button that changes contextually with your active pet. FerocityPrimal Rage (Active - Bloodlust)Predator’s Thirst (Passive - 3% Leech for you and your pet)TenacitySurvival of the Fittest (Active - 20% damage reduction for the Hunter and Pet for 6 seconds with a 3 minute cooldown)Endurance Training (Passive - 10% max health for you and your pet)CunningMaster’s Call (Active – a friendly target and your pet are immune to[...]

Arena Movement Lag Hotfixes Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) We’ve recently implemented a technical change to address player feedback about certain movement lag issues, particularly in Arenas. The most common report has been from one player seeing another player in a different location than where they are actually positioned. A fix to address that issue has now been live for a couple days, and we’re looking for feedback from players who play in Arenas and might be seeing a difference in the frequency of this issue. While we have other improvements in the works for the future, we believe this should have significantly reduced movement lag from multiple players’ perspectives. Please let us know if you’re seeing improvement along those lines. Thank you! Greater Invasion Boss - Occularus Occularus is up this week, rewarding item level 930 loot!
