Patch 7.1 is approaching and a lot of players will be lured by the siren of false riches.
For details which items are available in exchange for Blood of Sargeras look here. What will happen after Patch 7.1 goes live?
Prices of reagents will go drastically down as there will be a large spike in supply. Players will be burning their bloods. Many players are currently sitting on lots of bloods, because apart from Professions there's currently no use for them. These very same players are willing to make quick Gold, which is where we will strike to make even more. Prices will stabilize again somewhere below their current values when people burn all their bloods. We want to make the most out of this opportunity, because we are patient little Goblins, right? Here are some steps to make you prepared for the Patch.
Nobody will be buying crappy items like Unbroken Claw or Lean Shank from the vendor as they want to maximize the value of bloods. It all comes down to players whining about how expensive all herb-based products (flasks, elixirs) are, so let's talk herbs! Hebs
Will be the most valued commodity. Let's do a little research with Median Prices (US)
Fjarnskaggl's price is 44.31 Gold. Foxflower's price is 48.86 Gold. Starlight Rose price is 114.71 Gold. (Source)
So, spending a blood on the Fjarnskaggl is 443.10 Gold, Foxflower 488.60 Gold and Starlight Rose just 344.13 Gold, which bring us to a conclusion that to get the maximum value of your bloods spend them on Fjarnskaggl & Foxflower.
Buying Herbs & Making Profit
Starlight Rose is a reagent used for many flasks. On Patch day (October 25), buy as many as you can. The influx in supply will be vast and the price reduction will be crazy on Tuesday/Wednesday. Wait until at least November 8 when Trial of Valor opens and resell all the roses when the demand gets higher and people will have spent their bloods. Closing Tips
Don't forget to set up your Sniper to constantly scan the Auction House as miss-pricing will definitely occur. A separate account just for constant Sniping can always make you tons of gold!
Patch 7.1 introduces us to a rare Falcosaur breed of pets and mounts! You can obtain four new Falcosaur pets.
Bloodgazer Hatchling - Azsuna Direbeak Hatchling - Stormheim Sharptalon Hatchling - Val'sharah Snowfeather Hatchling - Highmountain
Need to be up in a specific zone to get the pet. They are on a two-day duration and even more than one can be up at a time.
Bloodgazer Swarm! Direbeak Swarm! Sharptalon Swarm! Snowfeather Swarm! Killing the Matriarch will spawn a corresponding orphan that you can interact with only by giving him food. Journal descriptions of the pets will give you more insight.
Azsunian Grapes Pungent Vrykul Gamalost Dried Bilberries Smoked Elderhorn After feeding the pet, you will need to level it to 25 then you will receive a specific quest which you need to complete. Overall, the quest line is quite long and involves, PvP, World Quests, raiding / dungeons with your pet out.
One of the final quests of the chain gives you Ultimate Battle-Training Stone, which is great, because you don't need to level another Falcosaur to 25!
That's not everything, Muffinus confirmed even more quests on Twitter.
Placeholder for tweet 784751197915783169 Mad props to Quintessence for her very detailed research on the subject. Don't forget to visit her blog for an in-depth look at Falcosaurs!
Four new Falcosaur mounts are coming. Their color corresponds to the pets so maybe after completing the Falcosaur quest chain they may be a final reward depending on which pet you pick.

Today's blue posts cover Trial of Valor LFR Testing, Havoc Demon Hunters, Outlaw Rogues, Honor Talents & Prestige and finally the Zoom Slider.
The LFR difficulty for Trial of Valor is being playtested now on Public Test Realms until tomorrow.
The Trial of Valor raid will be opening very shortly for testing on Raid Finder difficulty, and will remain open through tomorrow. Please use this thread to provide feedback, bug reports, and other relevant commentary.
If you prestiged at least once prior to 7.1, all Honor Talents will be unlocked when the patch goes live.
f you have already prestiged at least once before 7.1 then all of the honor talents will be automatically unlocked once 7.1 goes live.
Source for those who want double confirmation:
Havoc Demon Hunter talent diversification is on the list, here's an update from Ornyx. The changes won't come with 7.1, but later in a hotfix maybe?
Bit of an update here - we’re looking into potentially making some changes to a few of Havoc’s talents, to diversify your options a bit and make certain rows feel more like there’s a choice to be made.
No details to share just yet, and these changes won’t make it into Patch 7.1, but we’re working on it.
Buffs to Outlaw Rogues are imminent. Devs confirmed seeing them a little lower in numbers than expected. Another discussed subject is Roll the Bones.
Thanks again for your patience here as it does take some time to make sure we go over all the feedback we receive - we've been having a few conversations based on the feedback in this thread and throughout the community, and I wanted to share our thoughts on Roll the Bones, as well as the state of Outlaw overall.
Roll the Bones is a spec-defining ability for Outlaw Rogues, and there’s a lot of depth to the gameplay of reacting to the various buffs that the Bones can provide, as they alter the flow and pace of combat. We’re happy with how it’s played out, and there are very few class mechanics that can rival the excitement of getting that elusive 6-buff at just the right time.
That said, we recognize that that playstyle might not sit well for everyone, which is why we created Slice and Dice as an alternative to opt-out of the Roll the Bones playstyle. Marked for Death and Death From Above take a little more effort to use effectively, and need to give enough of a benefit to reward that effort, but we’re going to take another look at Slice and Dice to make sure it’s living up to expectations. If it isn’t, we’ll look into making some improvements.
Separately from Roll the Bones, we do feel that Outlaw’s DPS has ended up a little lower than we’d like it to be, and are looking into some options to bring it up a bit. We don’t have an ETA just yet on when that might happen, but it’s on our to-do list.
No nerfs to zoom, only cVAR changes on PTRs.
Zoom nerfed on PTR. Intended?
Intended, yes - but maybe not quite in the way you phrased it.
The CVar has changed to cameraDistanceMaxZoomFactor, so the command you will want to use now is "/console cameraDistanceMaxZoomFactor 2.6". This value should also persist now, so you only need to use the command once.
The slider itself was unnecessary, and has been removed. The default value is set to the max, and very, very few people (if anyone?) used it to reduce their maximum zoom distance. The game's zoom distance will now default to the old maximum value of 1.9 unless changed with the above console command.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention, though! Appreciate the feedback here. :)
Can you ask the dev team to do one small test before considering this to go live? Try the Lorlathil daily where you have to gather the nuts. I have to zoom way in to click on them, otherwise the click region is so small, it's frustrating. I'm sure there are other quests that will be similar (catching the squirrels or whatever they are) in hyjal, for instance.
This doesn't affect the amount you can zoom in, only the amount you can zoom out. We did take situations like this into account, but we don't believe players are necessarily reducing their maximum camera view distance for this (rather than just mouse-wheeling to zoom in).
That's it for today's blues!
Patch 7.1 arrives on Oct 25. A survival guide was released, showcasing some of the content additions.
