Unsure of what's going on in April in World of Warcraft? Here's our survival guide for this month!

 

Most of this month's action happened at its very beginning with the various April Fool's jokes by Blizzard. The Legion patch notes was by far the most popular one, while you can vote for your favourite one in this poll until April 11.

 

Since there are no major world events in April (apart from Noblegarden, which ended on Monday), make sure you make the most out of this month by participating in the weekly events. Here they are:

 

6th-11th April: The Pet Battle Bonus Event started today and we will have an article about it very soon! During this event, battle pet experience is increased by 200%.

 

13th-18th April: Arguably, Cataclysm was the expansion with the most challenging dungeons ever. Remember a time when dungeons were actually hard with the Cataclysm Timewalking Event!

 

20th-25th April: As usual, at least one week per month the Apexis Crystal Bonus Event is up.

 

27th April - 2nd May: The last event of this month, which carries on for two days in May, is the Arena Skirmishes Bonus Event.

Darkmoon Faire

 

Darkmoon Faire is currently underway and it will run until the 9th of April. If you haven't grabbed any of the pets, mounts or achievements yet, the time to do it is right now!

 

Don't forget to check out our guide for Darkmoon Faire.

 

Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza

 

Like we've said, April is a quiet month and doesn't feature any major world events. As an alternative, you can try your luck in the weekly Stranglethorn Fishing competition that happens every Sunday.

 

The competition can get pretty hectic, especially if you are in a high population server. However, there are a few tips and tricks that can help you make it through:

  • Bind your inv_misc_rune_01.jpgHearthstone to the Inn in Booty Bay for a quick return.
  • Track fishing nodes in your minimap via inv_misc_fish_02.jpgFind Fish.
  • inv_potion_166.jpgElixir of Water Walking can be useful in some situations.
  • Get your friends to help you. If you have a Warlock in the party, they can summon you back at Booty Bay (although the first tip is still recommended). They can also scout for fishing nodes for you, kill of the opposite faction competition or post fake announcements in the map chat.
  • Everything is allowed! This is war!
  • Make sure you know which reward you want and select it quickly in the end. Don't waste any time deciding.

Speaking of the rewards/prizes, here they are:

 

1st Place: You can choose between inv_fishingpole_01.jpgArcanite Fishing Poletrade_fishing.jpgHook of the Master Anglerinv_boots_cloth_21.jpgBoots of the Bay, inv_fabric_mageweave_02.jpgHigh Test Eternium Fishing Line and inv_jewelry_ring_39.jpgDread Pirate Ring.

 

2nd Place: You can choose between inv_boots_cloth_21.jpgBoots of the Bay or inv_jewelry_ring_39.jpgDread Pirate Ring

 

3rd Place: You will merely get a inv_fabric_mageweave_02.jpgHigh Test Eternium Fishing Line as a reward.

 

Lastly, there are various interesting streaming community events and podcasts this month. If you want to learn more about them, head over to the official site for an overview of everything WoW-related happening in April.

      A set of titan-themed Antorus trinkets seems to have some pretty spectacular ednboss-only secondary procs!
      With 7.3.2 on the PTR there's been a lot of new discoveries, and the trinkets coming with Antorus: The Burning Throne are certainly among the most interesting. They are all titan themed and all have a standard proc and then an additional unique proc. While it's unclear when exactly this "Empowered by the Pantheon" effect occurs, it seems likely it's connected to a particular part of the Argus the Unmaker encounter (as per the Encounter Journal). Since these secondary procs are pretty insane stat wise (at least for now, you never know with PTR numbers) it seems very likely they will only be present during a part of the Argus fight, perhaps acting as a soft nerf over time for guilds, but they could also be present in the rest of the raid, we'll just have to wait and find out.
      But enough fluff, let's take a look at the actual items!
       Aggramar's Conviction
         Aman'Thul's Wisdom
          Eonar's Compassion
        Golganneth's Vitality
        Khaz'goroth's Courage
        Norgannon's Prowess
      So, what do you think about these pretty crazy trinkets and their potential use as tools to make the endboss easier?

      New sound files have been added in Patch 7.3.2 and they are full of heavy spoilers revolving around Illidan and the fate of Azeroth after Argus the Unmaker has been defeated.
      Our friends over at MMO-Champion have uploaded new voicovers for Aggramar, Aman'thul, Eonar the Life-Binder, Illidan, Khadgar, Malfurion and Tyrande that contain major spoilers, proceed with caution!
      From the recently added Dungeon Journal entry of Argus, we learn that the Pantheon will be aiding us in the final battle against Argus. Eonar provides Gift of the Lifebinder, allowing players to resurrect during the encounter. Other perks in the encounter are  Gift of the Sea or Gift of the Sky.
      Aman'thul VO
      Aggramar VO
      Eonar VO
      Illidan VO
      Illidan asks you to put some final matters to rest and deliver Alor'idal Crystal on his behalf. It holds messages for his brother Malfurion, Tyrande and you. After that you're supposed to place it atop Mount Hyjal upon the shores of the Well of Eternity. If you don't know what happens to Illidan after Argus is defeated, you can find more information here. Illidan, Malfurion and Tyrande received young models in Patch 7.3.2 that may be part of a flashback.
      Malfurion VO
      Tyrande VO
      Khadgar VO
      Now comes the real deal. Khadgar's new sound files reveal what's going on with Azeroth.
      "The Legion is defeated, its master imprisoned, but in his final spiteful act, Sargeras may have doomed us all. Our world is wounded champion. Its life essence seeps out into the sands just as Magni foresaw. This mere drop of Argus' blood surges with incredible power, the might of a titan. If the blood of Azeroth also proves to be a source of such strength, those who seek to rule this world will stop at nothing to possess it. The days ahead may be dark indeed. For now, go to Silithus. Gaze upon the wound in the world with your own eyes. We will find a way to save Azeroth, I know it."
      Remember Il'gynoth's quote "The king of diamonds has been made a pawn?" It all started with the Whispers of a Frightened World scenario.  From the transcript it is obvious that the final titan is wounded. There's a new map with a giant wound (hole) in Silithus. 
      Silithus Wound
      Below is a map of the Silithus Wound scenario.

      Public Test Realms have been updated with Patch 7.3.2. The patch contains adjustments in preparation for the release of Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      The development notes are really short. There's no new content or features and Blizzard doesn't plan to post further development notes for future builds.
      It's needless to say that there's a lot going on! Primal Sargerite can now be exchanged for various goods, Argus the Unmaker now has a Dungeon Journal entry, Legendary items can be upgraded to 1,000.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve updated the 7.3 PTR with a new patch, labeled as 7.3.2. This patch is very minor, focused around updating a few of our backend systems as well as making some final adjustments in preparation for the release of the Antorus raid zone. There’s no new content or features in this update, and any other changes will be extremely light (in most cases limited to simply correcting tooltips to reflect hotfixes that are already live).

      As such, we’re not planning to post regular development notes with future builds, but will post updates regarding raid testing as that process continues. Thanks, and happy testing!

      Awoken Titan Essence allows upgrading of Legendary items to item level 1,000 when Antorus opens.
      In July, we spotted Legendary items of item level 1,000. Players have been reporting the bug on live realms, but in Patch 7.3.2 a new item appeared that can upgrade Legendary items to Legion's max cap - ilvl 1,000.
      The upgrade process is similar to how Legendaries have been upgraded throughout Legion (in Patch 7.2.5 with Stabilized Titan Essence, or Distilled Titan Essence in Patch 7.1.5).
      In Patch 7.3.2, you'll need to collect 50 essences to receive Awoken Titan Essence and upgrade a single Legendary item to item level 1,000. Essences will likely drop in Antorus, the weekly Order Hall cache, emissary chests or Mythic Keystone caches. Crafted items should be of item level 1,000 by default when Antorus the Burning Throne opens.

      Similar to the Blood of Sargeras vendor in Dalaran, a new vendor has been added to the Vindicaar in Patch 7.3.2. He offers various items in exchange for Primal Sargerite.
      Maras can be found aboard the Vindicaar on Argus. For 1 Primal Sargerite, you can get one of the following:
      10x Astral Glory 10x Empyrium 10x Fiendish Leather 10x Lightweave Cloth Uncut Argus epic gems cost 10 Primal Sargerite each.
