New Patch?

3 posts in this topic

So I tried logging in today. Yesterday 2/5/13, they did maintenance, and i think there was a small patch download, as i have found out to be 5.1.0a . unfortunately I am on a college wifi which blocks all blizzard downloads, so i have to use a patch mirror. Can anyone find a working one for me, and tell me how to use it? I found one on wowpedia for the small patch and downloaded the zip, but i am clueless after that. I tried dragging the zip into the application itself but what should be the loading screen, just says initializing and doesnt continue further.

you have to extract the zip file... but im not sure where too! try to look it up or fiddle around.

When you download the zip file and extract it you will generally see an executable file that you can use to update the client. Windows has a built in zip file extraction and viewing so it should be no problem to do this. . . if you want you can look up 7zip and use that program as it is free and opensource.

Your college is likely blocking all p2p ports so you may still be able to download by opening the WoW launcher then clicking on "options" and then "downloader preferences" and finally uncheck the box that says "enable peer to peer transfer" Save the changes by clicking ok and then close the launcher and open it back up again. Hopefully the HTTP download will function through the client and you can still patch but this will be a bit slower on very large patches as you will only be able to use a limited amount of bandwidth to download the patch.

      Hi all. Looking to reroll from Warlock in 7.1. Looking to start right now. I currently have a priest that I've played for around a decade, but I've always wanted to try mages. Right now, I'm judging them based on viability in Heroic/Mythic Raids and high end mythic dungeons. With the projected buff to shadow priest coming with shadowform coming back adding a flat 10% damage bonus, do you think spriests will be beating fire mages? 

        I'm already aware that spriests are weak on mythic+ for lack of aoe, but I have no clue if mages are good at mythic+ either. Just curious if you guys think this 10% boost will bring them up to par. 

      tl;dr If I want to do well in mythic raids/dungeons, would you guys recommend shadow priest given the 7.1 buffs, or fire mage?

      Hey guys, 
      So i've got a bit of a thing for being a healer at the moment. I've always dabbled in it on my pally, even on my druid once, but i LOVE the idea of the new Disc priest, where you apply atonement and then DPS, thus helping the raid / dungeon move forward.
      Imagine my excitement when i saw the beta videos on YouTube explaining how it worked.
       
      Imagine my dissappointment when i tried to put it into practice.
       
      I acceopt that this is probably my fault in some way but i cannot get past Proving grounds gold challenge level 4. There is just too much damage coming in, and I d not have sufficient mitigation, by half way through the encounter, I am pretty much having to spam Shadow Mend because the healing from atonement is barely noticable. 
      Im not level capped yet on this alt so im happy to believe that MAYBE this will improve once i am in class hall gear or something but I am close to just switching back to my holy Pally instead. 
      Does it get any better or is Disc a dead healing spec?

      Demon Hunter
      The Havoc Demon Hunter Artifact ability Fury of the Illidari no longer plays an extra spell effect visual from the gold trait Rage of the Illidari without the Rage of the Illidari trait learned. Druid

For “The New Blood”, players can now loot an additional Tome of Blighted Implements to fulfill the requirement to do so if they already have the Tome of Blighted Implements in their inventory. Fleet Admiral Tethys is now available in the Hall of Shadows to turn in "The Dreadblades", even when Fleet Admiral Tethys is in Stormheim. Warriors who enter the scenario for "The Hunter of Heroes" will now properly advance the quest if they walk into Tideskorn rather than take Aerylia’s ride.

      Blizzard, September 1
      Hotfixes
      Classes
      Death Knight
      Anti-Magic Barrier should no longer grant more than the intended bonus when combined with other effects that increase health. Vampiric Blood should no longer grant more than the intended bonus when combined with other effects that increase health. Mage
      Ignite spreading will no longer incorrectly remove other Mages' Ignite. Monk
      Fortifying Brew should no longer grant more than the intended bonus when combined with other effects that increase health. Shaman
      Enhancement Shamans should no longer be prevented from using instant Healing Surge while moving. Warrior

      The tooltip for Tome of the Clear Mind now correctly states a maximum player level of 109 for its use. Equippable items from Legion dungeon treasure chests should match your class proficiencies. Skaggldrynk should now properly share a cooldown with other combat potions. NPCs

      Reaves Module: Snack Distribution Mode no longer requires feasts. PvP
      Experience earned from gaining Honor has been reduced by approximately 50%. Developer’s note: We want battlegrounds and skirmishes to be a worthwhile and rewarding activity while leveling, but that should not be the most efficient method for gaining XP. While we've decreased the experience from PvP, it is still more efficient than it was in previous expansions. Quests
      Fixed an issue where faction transfers would interfere with Death Knight's ability to complete the Class Hall quest "The Firstborn Rises". Fixed a bug causing players who died during the sequence of Dalaran's teleportion would get stuck in Deadwind Pass. Paladins should now be able to progress with their Class Hall Campaigns after completing the quest "The Scion's Legacy", by speaking with Lord Maxwell Tyrosus. Teensy Weensy Fae Dragons should now appear more frequently during the quest “Teensy Weenies!”. Artifact
      Rogue player should no longer sometimes experience issues using their Smoke Bomb during "The Unseen Blade". Players should no longer be erroneously placed in a phase in Deadwind Pass that makes them unable to complete quests in the area, including "Following the Curse." Hunters completing to quest to obtain their second or third artifact should no longer receive the quest "Hunter to Hunter" after turn-in. The points of interest for the Warrior quest “Legacy of the Icebreaker" are now displaying correctly and the stage objectives update appropriately. Azsuna
      Daglop should no longer disengage with the player, allowing “Minion! Kill Them!” to be completed normally. During "The Right Weapon for the Job", shipwrecked captives in the Shipwreck Arena clubhouse should no longer glow as if they’re viable targets for the quest. Players who leave the area and return during the “The Scythe of Souls” should be able to complete the quest. Players entering the Nor'danil Wellspring in Azsuna should no longer be incorrectly queued to enter the Withered Scenario in Suramar. Players should no longer fail to loot several quest objects in the Nar’thalas Academy during quests such as "Study Hall: Combat Research" and “Dressing with Class”. Highmountain
      The bungee rope attached to the player should no longer disappear during the quest “Going Down, Going Up”. Mayla Highmountain should no longer leave combat and reset the Wrath of Dargrul boss fight during “The Underking”. On “Murlocs: The Next Generation” and “Oh, the Clawdacity!”, Murky’s abilities no longer affect other players in PvP. Gurrullrurlll mrrrgrglru ruluulll. Stormheim
      "Waking the Shieldmaiden" now has a correctly-placed location dot on the map. Val’sharah
      Fixed a number of issues with the "Defend The Temple" Bonus Objective in Val'sharah. UI
      Obelisk of the Void should appear in the Dungeon Journal for all ranged damage dealers and healers. Zones
      Orgrimmar, Stormwind, and previously invasion-affected areas should once again be unified for single realms. Developer’s note: On RP servers, we’re setting sharding and cross-realm zoning back to how things were working before the Burning Legion invaded. This had been changed for stability during pre-launch events and invasions.
