Blue Posts: Dungeon Race, Gift Cards and 6.2.4

Recommended Posts

Over on the official forums there have been a number of posts from the blues concerning the Blizzard balance gift cards and the dungeon race occuring between teams from the US and EU. Make sure you're up-to-date!

 

For those of you that were excited to spend your evening watching the teams from Europe and the US battling through a brand new Legion dungeon, it looks like we might have to wait a bit longer. Blizzard have decided to postpone the race due to the re-introduction of the Overwatch Beta today. This will allow players to take part in playing the beta again while also watching the race. You can read all about the event on the official post here.

 

Blizzard Icon Update to Legion Dungeon Race

 

UPDATE: The Overwatch closed beta is returning on February 9. In order to allow our players and Twitch viewers to experience both events, we’ve rescheduled the Legion Alpha Dungeon Race to Thursday, February 11 at 3 p.m. Pacific time. We’ll see you then!

In other news, there has been further discussion of the Battle.net gift card issues in certain countries, such as Greece. Currently, there is no way for some players to pay for character services directly, since they cannot use their banking cards. One would assume that they could use a gift card to pay, but these are also not available in the countries affected. If you are wondering if your country is affected, make sure to check out the list of countries available to purchase the gift card in their last post. Players have long requested for these issues to be fixed and there was recently another update from Aerythlea on the EU forums. 

 

Blizzard Icon Aerythlea on Battle.net Gift Cards

 

As a small update regarding the Battle.net Gift Cards general availability in Europe:
 
We hear and understand your frustrations over not being able to purchase the Battle.net Gift Card in some countries. 
 
The Battle.net Gift Cards use a retail technology that may not be available at some storers. We are continuously working with our partners to identify retailers who use, or plan to use, the retail technology required to activate the Gift Cards.
 
Our current plans include Greece, Poland and Eastern Europe, where we are already working with our partners to bring these cards to retail within the coming months. 
 
Rest assured that our aim is to have the Gift Card available to purchase by everyone, regardless of country. We don’t want anyone to be left out.
 
Please excuse us for the delays, we’re working diligently to resolve them as fast as we can.
 
 
Our last post from the official forums is in regards to the release of the latest patch to the PTR: Patch 6.2.4. While there is currently very little being added with this patch, one would assume that Blizzard are going to be working to bring more content to the patch. You can check out the current notes here.

      Here comes the 4th installment of Sturmbart's mapping of Azeroth! After Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms and Northrend, we head to Pandaria and the parted mists, as the topographic map with estimated population values based on real-world continent sizes gives us a lot of info. The watermark is present once again, after some unfortunate cases of the maps being taken and resold by some shady people.

      And, speaking of Pandaria, here's a recent meme for ya, because why not:

      Redditor BurnInOblivion noticed that you can get from Hated to Exalted with the Sons of Hodir just by completing the quest chain during Wrath Timewalking.
      Wrath Timewalking is here until July 7 and the event comes with the Sign of the Scourge buff that increases Wrath of the Lich King reputation gains from combat and quests by 50%.
      BurnInOblivion pointed out that finishing Mending Fences and A Spark of Hope was enough for him to reach Exalted, as each quest gives 28,600 reputation with the faction, but later added that he achieved the +160% bonus reputation on a Human with Diplomacy which adds another 10%.
      Nevertheless, a total of 84,000 reputation is required to reach Exalted from Hated and quests leading up to that point should still give you ample reputation (85,800) to reach Exalted.
      Thanks to this method, you can completely skip grinding Relic of Ulduar for additional reputation.
      You can start the Sons of Hodir intro quest by going to K3 in Storm Peaks and talking to Gretchen Fizzlespark (They Took Our Men!).
      You can buy Reins of the Ice Mammoth (Alliance) / Reins of the Ice Mammoth (Horde) for 1,000 Gold at Revered and Reins of the Grand Ice Mammoth (Alliance) / Reins of the Grand Ice Mammot (Horde) for 10,000 Gold at Exalted with the Sons of Hodir. Reputation discounts apply.

      Very little is known about the Path of Ascension coming in Shadowlands, so we're looking at what we found in the game files.
      The Bastion Arena that we though was initially designed for PvP is known in the game files as "9.0 Bastion Arena - Path of Ascension". Another field calls it "The Robodrone".
      The loading screen gives us a very a rough idea about the new zone's appearance, but what is the Scenario really about?

      Through datamining we found multiple achievements tied to the Path of Ascension progression that include 39 encounter and defeating each boss unlocks more, so it's safe to assume that this could be the Brawler's Guild of Shadowlands.
      The Path Towards Ascension 1 - Defeat a boss in the Path of Ascension. Reward: Unlock more challenges in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 3  - Defeat three bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 5 - Defeat three bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 7 - Defeat seven bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 12 - Defeat 12 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 16 - Defeat 16 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 20 - Defeat 20 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 24 - Defeat 24 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 39 - Defeat 39 bosses in the Path of Ascension. Some spells reveal additional unlockable opponents, hinting at a Brawler's Guild-style system.
      Trial: Mad Mortimer - Unlocks Mad Mortimer as an opponent in the Path of Ascension. Trial: Athanos - Unlocks Athanos as an opponent in the Path of Ascension. Furthermore, datamining revealed more about Path of Ascension training and your Soulbind will help you during the encounters.
      It seems there will be some sort of Training Dummy implemented to practice for the Path of Ascension and your Soulbind will assist you during the encounter.
      Soul Mirror - Used to capture a memory of a target for training purposes in the Path of Ascension. Extracting Memory - Channel on a Path of Ascension capture target, containing a memory of them within the Soul Mirror to be trained against. [DNT] Start Encounter - Are you ready to face the Path of Ascension with your current selections? Charms
      Buffs that empower your Soulbind in different ways. Charms are crafted through Ascended Crafting. Some of the buffs are still incomplete.
      Charm of Fortitude - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, increasing their Health by 10% for their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Alacrity - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, increasing their Movement Speed by 10% for their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Persistence - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing them to regenerate 1% health every 5 seconds during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 4 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing them to Buff 4 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 5 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing Buff 5 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 6 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing Buff 6 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 7 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing Buff 7 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Path of Ascension is a Scenario which means you can just queue up for it and there is no need to wait for your turn!

      The new Alliance and Horde Intro Experience of Shadowlands is suppose to introduce completely new players to the game and we learned that Area looting is a feature learned at level 8.
      Back in May, we posted about the option to disable AoE Loot in the game, now why would you want that? It turns out this feature is intended for new players that go through Exile's Reach and unlock Area looting at level 8.
      For an odd reason, AoE looting was available on Alpha even before level 8 as depicted in the image below and we did not have to loot all corpses separately.

      Upon reaching level 8, you unlock Area Looting which allows you to loot all nearby corpses.

      Thanks to u/Grayvves for the tip.
