wow Blue Tweets: General Legion Updates #2

1 post in this topic

The past few days have been busy on Twitter with Legion updates concerning transmogrification, spells, changes to Challenge Mode gear and more! Check it out!

It's been a busy few days over on Twitter, with the @WarcraftDevs feed answering numerous questions about upcoming changes in Legion. Our first tweet is looking at the time of introduction of many of the improvements coming with Legion. It seems like the UI and system changes will be implemented during the pre-patch.



It looks like there is going to be some re-working of tanks coming with Legion as well. For a great deal of time, there was a huge focus on Death Knights being the tanking class for solo gameplay. Blizzard has confirmed they are going to try and make all tanks capable of completing solo raids.



Rogues, worry not! Those of you that have seen the Outlaw animations posted on our animations post might have noticed the Pistol Shot visual is rather lacking. It pulls out a pretty standard gun without much "zing" to it. Blizzard have confirmed this is just a placeholder and a new, flashier animation is on its way!



For the new transmogrification system, there seems to be two pieces of news coming from the developers! Firstly, it looks like earning transmogrification "looks" is going to be limited to what your class wears as armour. For example, only a cloth-wearer can unlock cloth looks, only a plate-wearer can unlock plate looks.



Secondly, it looks like changes are coming to how Challenge Mode looks are going to work. Blizzard has now confirmed that if you have unlocked the sets from Mists of Pandaria on a class, it is then unlocked for any future characters you make of the same class. Time to go and make 9 more warriors!



Our last tweet of today's post addresses the worries of many warlocks that have seen the removal of Dark Soul for Destruction and Affliction from the Alpha. The developers have assured players that the Doomgurd/Infernal cooldown is going to be buffed to compensate for the loss of Dark Soul. There are also going to be new talents that aid with increasing burst damage.

      Well, it seems announcements for killvideos are a thing nowadays! After Exorsus' World 2nd, Method have let slip the date and time of the very first airing of their World First Mythic Kil'jaeden kill video. Now, we've all been able to see the fight up until around 40% courtesy of the Alpha stream, but that final 40ish percent seems brutal and will definitely be worth a watch (or several).
      In any case, you can check it out it starting from 8PM CET over on Method's twitch channel. Meanwhile you can read the interview they recently did covering the whole of ToS progression.

      I have compiled the Warcraft story into 240 events nested into 29 statements nested into 4 summaries, all of which can be toggled individually.

      This is a work in progress still, and certain details are outdated due to the WoW: Chronicle retcon, but it still gives a very solid ground-up understanding of the Warcraft story and most of its fundamental aspects.

      Update: Added nerdscreams video and killshot.
      And the second kill is finally here! Exorsus have defeated Kil'jaeden 7 days, 5 and a half hours after Method's World First kill and fended off the Chinese guilds that were pressuring their silver medal spot. After 962 wipes this will come as a huge relief for the Russian guild, as they've also had wipes as low as 0.2% in the last couple of days and been pretty frustrated with some of the issues on the fight. Guild GM Alveona even promised a big post about the whole issue after the race is done, so we have that to look forward to!
      Now it's down to Alpha and Style War to fight over the final top 3 spot, if one of the other 25 guilds on Kil'jaeden don't pull an upset and get there first! We also have Method's kill video to look forward to, which should arrive either after the 3rd kill or when one of the streaming guilds gets close to a kill. And there's Method's  big interview coming today where we'll find out more specifics of the fights!

      Lightforged Golem is one of 7.3 mounts that deserves a separate preview. It has unique animations and it's quite probable that it will be related to Antorus, the Burning Throne raid as a reward for completing Glory of the Argus Raider.
      Below are screenshots of the mount including the /mountspecial animation.

      Patch 7.3 adds two new factions to the game. The first one's called Argussian Reach and you can add up to 7 mounts to your collection. Most of the reputation is gained from World Quests.
      Toraan the Revered is the faction's quartermaster and sells a tabard at Exalted.

      Argussian Reach Emissary - World Quests Cache Argussian Reach Emissary Artifact Power - Cache AP Reward Argussian Reach Mounts
      The new faction offers 7 talbuk mounts. All of them are unlocked at Revered.
      Maddened Chaosrunner is the only mount that has a somewhat "unique appearance". The other talbuks are just recolors.
