wow Blue Tweets: Lore and Level 100 Boosts

1 post in this topic

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.

      Better stats and scaling in PvE, worse scaling in PvP and more changes are live.
      Update 2: Today's hotfixes didn't bring any additional info on the procc rate buff, but did offer some insight from the devs as to why the changes happened in the first place. You can check them out here.

      Update: It seems the procc rate was buffed as well and we'll find out the exact details in the hotfix notes later today.

      After the big announcement about the Artifact Knowledge cap being reduced, today we're getting a bit of an offset (or consolation prize for some) as the "infinity trait" aka Concordance of the Legionfall just got buffed, at least in PvE. The changes are up already on live servers.
      Placeholder for tweet 867444216745439232 It did not get the base buff PvP, however, and the scaling actually got nerfed:
      Placeholder for tweet 867444363655233536 We also got some clarifications on when exactly the PvP tuning comes into effect:
      Placeholder for tweet 867445986959818752 And in the most recent update, we found out the procc rate was buffed as well, but we'll be getting more details later:

      A very short list today, with just 1 item on the agenda: the Concordance changes. Unfortunately we didn't get any more detailed info on the exact proc rate increase, but we did get some insight into the overall changes from the devs.
      May 24 (source)
      Artifacts
      Concordance of the Legionfall Chance to activate slightly increased. Now grants 4,000 Strength, Agility, Intellect, or Versatility at rank 1 (was 2,000). Additional ranks now increase this value by 300 per rank (was 200). Effects are now reduced by 50% in PvP situations. Developers’ Note: While additional ranks of Concordance of Legionfall are intended to have a low impact, the trait was overall weaker than it needed to be. With these changes, it provides a stronger up-front benefit, and very slightly more value for Artifact Power spent past the first rank. These changes also result in an overall nerf in PvP, where we are continuing to monitor its performance. Previous hotfixes (May 22nd).

      Mione is back at it and this time it was the Emerald Nightmare's own Cenarius that went down vs. the lone Vengeance Demon Hunter. Pretty damn impressive since EN is technically still the same tier as the current endgame raid, Nighthold (even though it's waay behind on item levels). The fight itself is pretty exhilarating as well, as the health on the DH keeps flying up and down the whole time!
       
      And here's the armory link for the 918 ilev Demon Hunter.
