Blue Tweets: Lore and Level 100 Boosts

Recommended Posts

15043-blue-tweets-lore-and-level-100-boo

The Blues have been busy with some tweets concerning lore, as well as a new video explanation of the Level 100 Boost!

 

Our first tweet comes from @DaveKosak, who is responding to a tweet concerning the term "spirit" in the Warcraft universe.

 

 

It can be pretty challenging to keep control of the different terms for the elements within the world. Fire, Wind, Water, Earth, Wilds, Life, Spirit and Chi. All of these can be used when describing both external and internal elements, hence why it can get pretty confusing. At least now we know that Monks aren't Warlocks 2.0!

 

Our next tweet concerns the level of power that the goddess Elune fits into in regards to other beings.

 

 

This is an interesting one that I'm going to do my best to comment on with the knowledge that I have. Elune is the moon goddess, worshipped by the Night Elves. When Azeroth was initially formed, Elune protected every living thing and allowed them to grow. She is named as the most powerful of the Eternals on Azeroth. The Eternals are native to Azeroth and are immortal, deity-like beings. 

 

Elune was the mother of Cenarius, an extremely powerful being, as well as the creator of Aviana, the demi-goddess of the skies. It's pretty difficult to place her directly on a scale of power, but let's take a look at some of the other things she has done:

  1. Shielded Tyrande from the torture of Lady Vashj.
  2. Gave Tyrande the ability to heal any wound.
  3. Shielded Tyrande from Archimonde's power.
  4. Created the Moonkin.

A recurring theme here is that Elune doesn't actually fight. The goddess is known for her unwillingness to allow combat to ensue, always trying to force peace. Her defensive capabilities are extremely powerful, true, but on an offensive level, we don't actually have much to draw from.

 

The main example of offensive power was the spell granted to Tyrande during the Third War: Starfall. It allowed Tyrande to single-handedly hold back and defeat an army of the dead.

 

To put Elune into categories, we can assume that she is most likely somewhere between the Titans and Old Gods. Power in the Warcraft series is extremely difficult to quantify, since we have so many people with powers that haven't actually been tested against other beings, just spoken of in tales.

 

Back to the tweets! Our last tweet comes from the official @Warcraft Twitter account, concerning a video walkthrough of what happens during the Level 100 Boost.

 

 

Just in case you never caught up with Lemmy and Krazzel in their quest to better one another, make sure you check out the 100 or Bust! video below.

      We have some possibly good news for all the people still chasing their perfect Corruption setup (which would be most players everywhere), as two separate theories have come up predicting which Corruptions will appear at what time in MOTHER's shop. Both theories are based on the Corruptions that we've seen so far, so neither has the full info for all Corruptions yet and both predict entries in different time frames, so their predictions don't conflict with each other.
      First off we have Dorovon, from Big Dumb Guild, who has actually datamined some hotfix data and come up with a possible pattern there, with cycles of linked Corruptions repeating. Now, this data might not actually be linked to the vendor at all, but we can't know that yet. From that base, Shiftmage created this spreadsheet which tracks all the upcoming Corruptions, but its first prediction comes on July 16th, as that's when the supposed "cycle" will start repeating.


      An additional problem here is that even if the data is linked to the vendor, it might simply randomize the order once it comes to the cycle reset point. We won't know whether any of this is reliable until June 16th, when the first prediction will either come true or not. You can check out the spreadsheet here for more details, and read a more detailed analysis of the datamining itself here.
       
      The second theory is much simpler and we'll find out whether it's correct a whole lot sooner - tomorrow on the next reset, in fact! Limit's Imfiredup has created a much more direct prediction, potentially figuring out the pattern for (only) the stat-based Corruptions.

      We simply keep in mind we're now on cycle 4, which would indicate the next reset, coming tomorrow, should have Expedient 1 and Versatile 2, so it won't take long to see if this is correct. Just so it's easier to keep track, cycle 5 would be (US) Tuesday's reset, aka 02.06, 6 would be Friday 05.06, 7 would be Tuesday 09.06 and cycle 8 would be Friday 12.06.
      You can check out how Imfiredup came to these number in the clip below:


      Now, obviously both of these have a lot going against them, and it's all very speculative at this point, but it'll be pretty exciting to see if either of them managed to get it right. Perhaps Blizzard will even see the interest players have in actually knowing when which Corruption will appear and share the correct schedule themselves?

      We're back to tiny batches (probably due to the Ineffable Truth fix being cancelled), as we only get 1 fix today, with a MoP NPC quest giver returning!
      June 1 (source)
      Quests Bowmistress Li should once again be available on Serpent's Spine to offer the quests "Falling Down " and "Nope ".

      In a very vague blue post, Blizzard just announced that the would not be going forward with the Fist of Justice/Ineffable Truth interaction hotfix, but the wording on it makes it somewhat unclear whether the fix is completely cancelled, or if they're just going to look for a different fix for the same issue.
      Fist of Justice (source)
      We’ve reviewed the various interactions at play in this situation and decided against making a change at this time. Thank you for your feedback.
      _________________________
      We think we’ve found a way to fix a bug, and we’re planning to deploy the fix in the next day or two.
      The bug is with the Corruption Effect Ineffable Truth and its interaction with abilities like Fist of Justice causing more than the intended amounts of cooldown reduction.
      The hotfix will make it so the flat cooldown reduction provided by Fist of Justice (and similar abilities) will not be unintentionally increased by effects that increase your cooldown rate (such as Ineffable Truth).
      We’ll confirm that the fix is live in our hotfixes update posts.

      If you ever wanted to see what some wow WoW's most iconic weapons would look like in a newer engine, we have twp cool mods to show off today! Monster Hunter: World, it's focus on huge weapons, makes Sulfuras a natural fit, and FragStriker on Nexus Mods made it happen, and also went one step further and added Varian's swords, Shalla'tor and Ellemayne, in there! The weapons have effects on them as well, which apparently isn't too common in MHW modding, as noted by redditor Prince_Nipples, who also supplied these ingame screenshots:
        
        
      And here are the official shots:
        
        
      Here's the official blurb for the mod:
      You can check out the Sulfuras mod here, and the dual blades here.

      We're previewing Gargan mounts coming in the Shadowlands expansion.
      Shadowlands Alpha game files contain two types of Gargan mounts. The first version is without armor, whereas the second one has armor and looks like an upgrade of the first one. We have no clue where to get these mounts right now, as no mount sources have been added yet on Alpha. The Gargan mounts come in four tints: black, purple, red, and white.
      Black


      Purple


      Red


      White
