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.

      Players have recently discovered how to get Carpal, a battle pet native to Maldraxxus.
      Here's how the pet looks like in the game.

      “Nobody knows why all of these skeletal hands are from the left hand. Where did the right hands go?”
      You must gather 3 parts to create the pet (Lend Me a Hand).
      Animated Ulna - A rare reward from Maldraxxus Pet Battle World Quests. Animated Radius - Purchased from Nalcorn Talsen (51/53) for 250 Polished Pet Charms. Flexing Phalanges - Looted from Skeletal Hand Fragments at 47/62 in Maldraxxus.  The objects are only visible when you have both Animated Ulna and Animated Radius.  You can find more details about the pet on Warcraft Pets.

      Blizzard clarified how PvP progression will look like when PvP Season Season 1 launches tomorrow.
      (Source)
      We’ve seen several questions recently about how PvP progression will look over the next few weeks, and we have answers.
      First and foremost, Honor is the new currency that was introduced with the Shadowlands Pre-patch. Players can earn Honor from honorable kills, Battlegrounds, Epic Battlegrounds, skirmishes, Arenas, and Rated Battlegrounds. Honor can be spent to purchase gear from Purveryor Zo’kuul in Oribos. This gear can be upgraded by Agressor Zo’dash for Honor. The upper limit of this kind of upgrade is determined by your Renown level, and players can hold a maximum of 15000 Honor.
      Conquest is an additional PvP currency. Players can earn Conquest from Battlegrounds, Epic Battlegrounds, Arenas, and Rated Battlegrounds. Players can spend Conquest to purchase gear from Zo’sorg in Oribos. This gear can be upgraded by Agressor Zo’dash for Honor. The upper limit of this upgrade is determined by your current highest rating bracket in Arenas or Rated Battlegrounds:
      Rating item-level Unranked 200 Combatant 207 Challenger 213 Rival 220 Duelist 226 There is a cap on how much Conquest can be earned during a season. This cap increases by 550 each week. This means that during week 1, the cap is 550. During week 2, the cap is 1100.
      If you earn 550 Conquest during week 1, you will then be able to earn 550 Conquest during week 2. If you earn no Conquest during week 1, you will then be able to earn 1100 Conquest during week 2. If you earn 400 Conquest during week 1, you will then be able to earn 700 Conquest during week 2. Finally, you should not have to wait for Conduit upgrades. Conduits appear at higher rank on the vendor automatically when your rating increases.

      While the Threads of Fate isn't the most popular alt-leveling system ever, it still has some big benefits, and the biggest one, in case you weren't aware, is the fact that there are a couple of ways you can test out all the Covenants while playing.
      In case you didn't know, while in Threads of Fate you can actually swap your Covenant freely by talking to the Covenant NPCs in Oribos, same as you would after level 60, except this time there's no penalty or delay. There's no additional work to be done or anything similar, you can just freely swap your Covenants around as many times as you want while in Threads of Fate.
        
      The second method might be even more handy, as you can simply decide not to choose your Covenant at all, skipping the Choosing Your Purpose quest, at which point you will receive the related Covenant's abilities when you enter a dungeon or world zone! You should be careful to actually pick a Covenant before you finish any of the long-term Threads quests, as you don't want to miss out on the Renown you get from them.
      Both of these methods are extremely handy for testing out all your class Covenant abilities in your various specs under real circumstances, as you can freely swap while leveling and get a feel of how they fit in to each spec.

      Some more class and Covenant tweaks in today's hotfixes as well as a Classic Naxx fix.
      January 20 (source)
      Classes
      Death Knight Blood Service In Stone (General Draven Soulbind) will now correctly trigger when the Death Knight dies due to Purgatory (Talent). Druid Druid Form sounds should now always match the visual when shapeshifting. No more cheetahs with a deep dinosaur voice running around out there. Warlock The Fatal Decimation (Necrolord Conduit) will now properly increase the damage of Decimating Bolt (Necrolord Ability) at Item Levels 213 and above. Warrior Arms War Banner (PvP Talent) will no longer rarely persist on players after the banner has despawned. Fixed an issue causing the second Mortal Strike from Mortal Combo (Conduit) to deal 20% less damage than intended. Covenants
      Kyrian Fixed an issue during the scenario "The Greater Good" where players who disconnected during the flight with Chyrus would not receive aid from Kleia, Pelagos, and Mikanikos, and would be unable to take a new flight to Elysian Hold. Fixed an issue where Athanos could fail to activate during the scenario "The Greater Good." Night Fae Fixed an issue for level 60 Night Fae players who were eligible for the Threads of Fate quest "Return to Oribos" where the quest start location would appear in the wrong area. WoW Classic
      Naxxramas Kel'thuzad will now reset if any creatures walk past the encounter door.

      Here's another "things that should stop working when zoning in/out" glitch, as players can actually bring allied mobs with them into battlegrounds and potentially elsewhere as well!
      Traice2020 was doing the Retaining the Court Revendreth World Quest, where you gather some anima to awaken the Darkwing Rebels when a battleground queue popped. So far so normal, but after entering the battleground the awakened rebel was still there, following the player around and actually doing damage!

      Source.
      Apparently the Stoneborn does "pretty good" damage as well (no details on the exact numbers), and if you'll remember the quest, you can actually get quite a few of them with you (there doesn't actually seem to be a limit, with plenty of players having over a dozen during the quest), which would be very powerful in the battleground. It's unclear if this was a temporary bug and if it's just related to battlegrounds or if it can actually be used in dungeons, raids etc. But what is VERY clear is that it's an exploit and will almost certainly result in suspensions if misused, so don't try this at home. And obviously big thanks to Traice2020 for reporting the issue!
      Hopefully Blizzard can fix this weirdness before BGs get overrun by Stoneborn and it becomes and all-out gargoyle fight with a bunch of spectators on the sidelines. Although having now put that into words, it would be an awesome sight right? Right Rextroy?
