1 post in this topic



Well, it's been a whopping 5 days since the last set of hotfixes, and all we got is a lot of bugfixes, with this being the most important: "Nomi will now also check your bank to see if you have any Silver Mackerel for him to burn."

Blizzard LogoSeptember 21st

Companion App

Version 1.0.2 is now available. Updates include:

  • Fixed an occasional error while collecting the first ready troop.
  • Champions below level 110 now show level instead of item level on the mission results panel.
  • Times now display the top two units in most places (example: hours and minutes instead of just hours).
  • Fixed an issue where a previously-collected troop would appear to be ready for pickup.



  • (Guardian) The Embrace the Nightmare artifact trait now properly grants crowd control immunity while Rage of the Sleeper is active.
  • Ironfur can no longer be dispelled.

  • Fade and Surrender to Madness can no longer be used while silenced or pacified.


  • Unstable Affliction's silence backlash can no longer be grounded and reflected.

Class Halls

  • Warlocks can now run through the portal to their Class Hall to be successfully teleported to their Class Hall.
  • Mage Class Hall NPCs will now be present as intended during the completion events for "Into the Oculus".


  • Maw of Souls
    • Fixed an issue where disconnected players could become stuck in Kvaldir Cages.


  • Items gained from the Druid Class Hall Evergreen perk are now soulbound.
  • The toys Blingtron's Circuit Design Tutorial, Runas' Crystal Grinder, JewelCraft, and Trigger should no longer be stackable.
  • Gnomish Gearworks and Goblin Workshop items are now restricted to use in Warlords of Draenor zones.
  • The Starlight Beacon should now more reliably trigger its 15-second cooldown.
  • Fixed a bug where Potion of the Old War was not triggering as often as intended.


  • Basilisks that appear when mining an ore node or creature will only drop additional ore for miners with at least 75 skill.

  • Fixed a bug that caused some Elite PvP gear to be awarded at ratings that were too low.
  • The primary stat on all templates has been decreased by about 10%.
  • Discipline Priests now deal 15% less damage in PvP, and all other healing specs now deal 25% less damage in PvP
    • Developers’ Notes: Since all healing specs have had their Intellect increased (detailed below) to increase their healing, we’ve lowered the amount of damage they do against players to 25% (from 15%). Discipline priests are intended to do more damage than other healers and so their damage done is only decreased by 15%.
  • Pets and guardians now take 75% reduced AoE damage in PvP (was 50%).
  • Tanks now take 25% more damage from other players.
    • The stamina of each tank spec has been increased slightly in PvP instances (battlegrounds, arenas, and Ashran).
  • Players who race in or around the Watch Tower Assault: Nightwatcher's Perch during the "Ley Race" quest are no longer flagged for PvP.
  • Players who backfill into an Ashran that is closing down because there are not enough players will not receive the Recreant debuff once the Ashran closes.
  • Chilled Conjured Water, Ley-Enriched Water, Pail of Warm Milk, 'Bottled' Ley-Enriched Water, Manaelle's Sparkling Cider, and Arcberry Juice can now be used in Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds.

  • Abandoning “Cry Thunder!” will now cause Vethir to despawn, and will remove the player from the mount. Players can voluntarily exit the vehicle at any point, which will teleport them to the ground if they're very high.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Illidan Stormrage to prevent the “Ravencrest’s Legacy” scenario from continuing.
  • Players will no longer be immediately teleported after accepting “Last Stand of the Moon Guard”, and must speak to Thalrenus Rivertree to be teleported to Meredil.

  • On “Operation Murloc Freedom”, Timeworn Oracles now do less damage.

      Cleared Heroic and Normal Emerald Nightmare in the first week of it's release.
      Classes Needed:
      Balance Druid
      Shadow Priest
      Always looking for exceptional DPS of any class.

      About Us: 
      We are a guild, made up of former members of <Red Shift> and <Casually Addicted>, on Bleeding Hollow (PvP Server on a Chicago Datacenter) that have a common goal and will do what is necessary to achieve it. We are Shifty Casuals.
      We are a group of professional adults, who believe success in raiding doesn't correlate to number in days/hours you spend raiding. We are starting a fresh page within our guild history and sticking to a 3 day a week raid schedule.
      We don't tolerate elitism, bigotry, misogyny or any of the like. We enjoy our calm, adult environment and have no qualms with protecting it.
      We do loot council which is fair and distributes loot for the progression of the raid as a whole and not an individual player. No favoritism, no loot drama.
      We have our sights set on top 100 US for Legion and are looking for like-minded individuals to join our ranks.

      Raid Days and Times (All times in EST as that is our server time):
      · Tuesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Wednesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Thursday 8:45pm-11:45pm

      Who We Want:
      Since we are reforming and building for the expansion now is a great time to get in on the ground floor and clear content with us, while prepping for the new expansion. These are some key traits that we are looking for:
      · Someone who understands that 3 nights a week raiding means that you need to bring your A-game each and every night. Attendance is expected to be near 100%. By committing to raid, you are committing yourself to our raiding schedule.
      · The ability to perform under pressure. We only recruit impressive players, and spots are always competitive.
      · Extensive class knowledge of your class. (IE: Alpha/beta testing, keeping up with theorycrafting, properly gemmed/enchanted, always be up to date on the intricacies of your class (not solely your spec(s)) and on the utility of the entire raid group.)
      · A computer that can handle 20-30 man raiding and the ability to communicate via VOIP when needed. You must have a working headset and mic, and you must be prepared to use them. We will not read chat during boss fights. Inability to give a vocal response will not be tolerated as it directly hinders progression.
      · Tough skin. We're always looking to improve ourselves as should you. Constructive criticism is encouraged, but flaming and insulting is not tolerated whatsoever.

      If you have what it takes to be a part of this great team and community, feel free to apply at our website  If you have questions about the application process, contact any of the officers for additional information.

      Remember Violet Signet of the Archmage? New versions of the old Karazhan rings have been added. They can be obtained through a series of quests that could potentially lead to Nightbane.
      There are four versions of the ring ranging from item level 850 up to 875.
      Violet Seal of the Archmage Fragments of the Past need to be completed to get the initial version of the ring. Violet Seal of the Archmage Complete Book Wyrms followed by Rebooting the Cleaner to get the first ring upgrade. Violet Seal of the Archmage Now for the third upgrade there are no quests in any databases. I fiddled around with in-game linking and found two more quests, which will likely upgrade the ring to its 860 version.
      The horseshoes can be a drop from Attumen or Midnight.

      Violet Seal of the Grand Magus The last ring has the same item level as Nightbane loot and offers a teleport to Karazhan on a 4-hour cooldown. I assume it's the final reward after defeating Nightbane. Nightbane
      Update: It seems some players have already summoned Nightbane. Observing the player's armory he doesn't have the last boss achievement. Maybe he finished the quest line already by switching lockouts.
      My theory is Nightbane will become available during the final part of the quest. Why? Look at the list of the following items. All are a requirement for the above quests and guess what? The items are always +1 by ID and go from first to last (all are quest items related to Karazhan ring quest line).
      Empty Box of Motivator Crystals Box of 'New' Horseshoes Bouquet of Roses Positive Review Negative Review Negative Review Little Red's Cape  Charred Bone Fragments (party loot) start the following quest that isn't in-game yet. We'll probably assemble Nightbane from the bone fragments -> Nightbane Transform.

      Here are some changes that were not present in 7.1 Patch Notes.
      Legion Companion app has been updated with Artifact Research. Galakras  can now be soloed. It takes only two shots from the same cannon to bring her down. Mount drops now get announced in Guild Chat. Ancient Mana Nodes in Suramar appear as blue icons. Withered J'im is now required for Unleashed Monstrosities. Funny fact, because we've got him up twice in a row by accident. Deepening Shadows animation is now purple and harder to see during the Cordana Felsong encounter. Sephuz's Secret has been nerfed. Silence or CC damage-dealing abilities will no longer proc it. Dalaran Guards will now tell you where the Transmogrifier is (same place as Enchanting). Followers can now be right-clicked and added to missions. Players can now hide their belts at the Transmogrifier. Weapons that disappeared when sheathing now appear properly. Weapon positioning for fist weapons has been improved. Items granting Artifact Power that are channeled, can be now consumed while moving. Crafted gear can now be upgraded with Obliterum up to item level 855 (up from 850). Glyph of the Blazing Savior should work now. Crystal Vials can now be purchased in stacks of 20 (up from 5). Questing
      Active Quests number tracking is back! The quest at the end of the Order Hall to unlock the third relic slot has had its World Quest requirement reduced to 20 (down from 30). Class Hall Upgrades that complete a World Quest no longer count toward emissary bounty chests. Selecting the emissary icon will change maps to that specific zone, where you need to complete the World Quests. A cutscene has been added when using Flight Master's Whistle. Class Changes
      Death Knight
      Wraith Walk  can now be used while dead. Druid
      Travel Form has the same speed as mounts. Troll's Flight Form makes bat noises again. The Druid's Class Hall had a Mailbox added. The Order Hall set acts now as a dress, instead of chest & legs. Druids entering Suramar City now get transformed into a mana saber when shapeshifted. The same should apply for Shaman's Ghost Wolf. Mage
      Teleport abilities have had icons updated. Felo'melorn's fire balls now have slightly different styles based on your Artifact appearance. They can be turned off entirely by talking to Archmage Melis. Priest
      Shadowform no longer affects mounts. There's a proc icon when Holy Fire is reset. Shaman
      Earthbind Totem has returned. Glyph of the Spectral Raptor now uses an updated model with more pixels! Warlock
      Demonic Gateway activation & travel time decreased. Enslave Demon's cap has been decreased to 109 (down from 110). Glyph of the Voidlord now has a unique model. Contagion is now 15% (up from 12%). Casting Circle no longer grants immunity when you stand in it.

      Will Nightbane be Karazhan's secret 9th boss? There's a lot of evidence.
      The earlier Mount Journal entry listed the Smoldering Ember Wyrm to be a drop from Nightbane, which is a good indication that Karazhan will have an additional boss, bringing the total number of encounters to nine. The updated entry lists the Drop as "Return from Karazhan".

      If you examine the journal description a little more carefully, there's mention of Arcanogos, who is none other than Nightbane.
      Possible Loot
      All the instance loot starts at 855+ whereas some is listed at 875+. It seems that Nightbane will be dropping the mount, relics and a trinket.
      Nightbane Loot Tables
      Assuming the dragon will drop the mount (Smoldering Ember Wyrm), Wowhead suggest the following loot:
      Bones of the Restless Scale of Arcanagos Even the loot item carries the name  "Arcanogos" Searing Cinder Ethereal Urn Maybe the boss will become accessible after defeating Karazhan's final boss - Viz’aduum the Watcher. Your thoughts?

      The Suramar campaign continues in Patch 7.1 with new quests, and a variety of rewards including items, a mount and Artifact Power.
      The Nightborne storyline continues in Patch 7.1.
      If you thought you'd be finished with Suramar after hitting Exalted, you merely had a break! In Patch 7.1, the campaign continues with a nine-week quest series culminating in the Insurrection achievement. Arcanist's Manasaber reward will likely require the Nighthold to open first. Finishing parts of the quest line award items with an item level range of 830 - 850 and Artifact Power as usual. If you've got Alchemy, don't forget to grab the new elixir recipe Recipe: Potion of Prolonged Power.
      Patch 7.1 Suramar Campaign Quests
      To start the quests, you need to have Exalted reputation.
      The following quest series have been added:
      Visitor in Shal'Aran Waning Refuge Sign of the Dusk Lily Break An Arm Trial by Demonfire Staging Point The Seal's Power Felborne No More Breaching the Sanctum Felborne No More If you hate spoilers, stop reading right now or proceed at your own risk. You have been warned.
