wow WoW Spotlight! Boss Blueprint

1 post in this topic


This week, the spotlight is on Boss Blueprint, a great web tool for developing and sharing the best strategies for raid boss encounters. The tool has been around since 2011, but has been updated to include maps for all Siege of Orgrimmar encounters.

Players can customize the maps with a variety of scalable icons and can easily share their positioning strategies with a custom URL. The tool even offers a Forum Embed code option, which allows players to easily share their maps with guildmates! Check out my not-so-great Immersius strategy!


We wanted to bring this site back into the spotlight in the hopes that they will be interested in updating and maintaining this valuable tool when Warlords of Draenor raiding begins! I know I would have liked to have had such a nifty web tool available back when raiding with Blood Legion (40-Man Naxxramas Four Horsemen, anyone?)!

      In case you were wondering what all the fuss was about, with Xavius dying under 2 hours after he was first engaged, and only 17 hours from the beginning of the whole raid, Russian guild Exorsus kindly shared this pretty great video!

      Will the Blood of Sargeras vendor addition single-handedly ruin the game's economy?
      The Blood of Sargeras vendor will be added in Patch 7.1. You will be able to exchange a single Blood of Sargeras, for herbs, crystals, dust, ores, order resources and more! Now the question is, why would Blizzard add such a vendor? To once again, ruin the market economy making professions obsolete as they were in Warlords of Draenor thanks to Garrisons.
      Markets are currently very volatile, but the prices of Enchants and other goods are alright, since you can make 10K / day easily with just doing Heroic dungeons and selling Defiled Augment Rune; I'm not even counting 500 Gold World Quests. At the end of the day, you'll have enough gold to buy yourself flasks & food easily.
      The Initial Vendor Version
      When I first saw this as an avid Enchanter I was bashing my head on the keyboard. I asked myself, why would Blizzard even consider adding a trade vendor so early. I'd expect something similar when we were in the middle on an expansion. Illnea Bloodthorn is the NPC. Initially, the vendor was set to trade a single blood for 20 herbs, fish, enchanting dust and ores.

      The Nerfed Version
      Luckily, yesterday, the former version was nerfed to 10x mats / blood (down from 20x).

      Mostly Affected Professions
      Gathering professions will be among the most affected. Expect huge price drops for goods from Herbalism, Mining & Skinning. Make the most out of them right now as with 7.1 they will no longer be very attractive.
      What Will Happen When 7.1 Hits?
      Phase 1
      Players are sitting at huge amounts of Blood of Sargeras right now, so for the first couple of weeks expect huge price drops in materials on the Auction House as people will be buying mats like crazy. This phase can last from anywhere between two weeks up to several months.
      Phase 2
      Starts right after people deplete their Blood of Sargeras. The market will slowly begin to stabilize to somewhere below the current prices.
      What Does It Mean For Me?
      All items sold will greatly have their prices reduced in the first weeks. This would be the ultimate time to make research and enter new niche markets. Market areas which weren't profitable before, due to high mats cost.

      The gem market has crashed overnight. The value of Legion gems has dropped to 1/4 of their usual price.
      Gem Market Crash
      It's happening as we speak. Legion gems, namely Saber's Eye of Intellect,  Saber's Eye of Agility & Saber's Eye of Strength are currently being duped, and many realms are reporting high influx in quantity and high price drops. The gems have dropped to approximately 1/4 of their usual value and everything happened just overnight! Crafting material cost is far higher than cut gems what makes Jewelcrafting no longer as attractive.
      TSM Snipers Beware!
      This is a warning for anyone using the TradeSkillMaster add-on for sniping items. Don't buy these gems IN BULKS if they appear in your filters, you will only lose your precious gold. The same applies if you see Level 1 characters selling them for cheap. You won't be able to make much profit with such spikes in supply.
      The Undermine Journal Reports
      Checking US-Illidan, the prices of Saber's Eye of Intellect have dropped from 20,000 down to as low as 5,300 Gold per piece in just two days. This isn't going on only in Americas, have a look at Aegwynn (EU).
      We'll have to wait and see if the prices will become stable once again or if Jewelcrafting is going to be dropped by a lot of players. Is your realm affected?

      The big news is that augment runes will now work in Mythic Keystone dungeons, with somewhat less importance on herbalism seeds nerfs for non-felwort ones.
      September 30
      Legion Companion App
      Fixed a bug in iOS 10 that caused notification badge numbers to not clear. The Login button now goes to your character list when possible. The Account Selection button starts a new login with The World Quest icon now shows additional info when using a filter. Fixed a bug that sometimes made it appear that a 100%+ mission failed.  
      Warlock Unstable Affliction's dispel kickback damage is now capped at 50% of the Warlock's maximum health, but can still critically strike. Destruction Warlocks that are stuck on the final Artifact acquisition quest "Ritual Ruination" should now find it easier to get through all obstacles. Any Warlock that has the Artifact, but is stuck on a quest objective, can return to Dalaran to get full credit for the quest. Class Halls
      New work orders for Seals of Broken Fate will now have a shipment duration of 5 seconds.  
      Dungeons and Raids
      Assault on Violet Hold The final encounters in Heroic and Mythic Violet Hold should now be properly reflected in your Statistics page upon completion. Darkheart Thicket (Mythic difficulty) Oakheart should no longer reset once awoken. Emerald Nightmare Xavius Dead players should no longer become stuck if they release their spirit during the teleport to The Emerald Dream after defeating Xavius.  
      Augment Runes will now function in Mythic Keystone dungeons.  
      Cooking Black Barracuda Angling (Rank 3) should now correctly grant a chance to provide an instant pool catch. Fish that are instantly caught from the Black Barracuda Angling trait are now selected from fishing pools, rather than open water fishing. Herbalism The droprate for seeds has been reduced to 2.5% for all herbs, except Felwort, which remains at a 25% chance to loot a seed.  
      Ashran All methods of turning in Artifact Fragments should now correctly reward honor at a rate of 1 honor for every 2 Artifact Fragments. The Rated PvP gear weekly bonus rewards are now based on the player's PvP Rating for 2v2, 3v3, and Rated Battlegrounds. Developers’ Notes: Currently, rated PvP is always rewarding item level 840 gear, regardless of rating. That is not our intent. We want to correct this as quickly as possible, but don’t want to inadvertently punish players who have already collected their weekly bonus chests. This fix will be implemented with the next weekly realm maintenance (A.M. PDT on Tuesday, October 4 for North American realms).  Quests
      These Suramar World Quests now correctly award Nightfallen reputation beyond Honored: “Studying the Reaction”, “Clear the Skies”, “Left for Dead”, and “Fiends of Tel'anor”. (Work in progress) Addressed multiple issues with the World Quest "Electrosnack" regarding tapping and some cosmetic elements. Players who would have otherwise died to falling damage in the Withered Army Training scenario should now be reduced to 1 hp. First Arcanist Thalyssra will now port you back to the front of the ruins. World Quests completed with a Combat Ally will once more correctly award experience to the Follower. Previous hotfixes.
