7.1 Legion Patch: Return to Karazhan!

Recommended Posts

BxdKXle.png

The presentation at the Legion Café at Gamescom saw Watcher announce that we will return to Karazhan in Legion Patch 7.1! Check out the details here.

Here's what we learnt from Slootbag's stream with Watcher:

  • Karazhan will be a LARGE 5-man dungeon, almost a 5-player raid with 9+ bosses (due to the opera counting as more than 1)!
  • The old raid will still remain, they do not want to remove that piece of history from the game.
  • They are planning a small raid between Emerald Nightmare and Nighthold that will wrap up the story of Stormheim, since that was left at a loose end. 
  • They are hoping to push more outdoor content.
  • The PTR for the patch 7.1 will launch very shortly after Legion launches.

The trailer is now up on the YouTube of MMOChampion:

I'm really happy to hear that the devs made the choice not to mess with the old Karazhan raid.  I think it would be almost tragic to take that completely out of the game.  I will be looking forward to what they've come up with, especially when they call it almost a 5 man raid!

Wish they would've done that with ZG to.

i'm going to be the downer at this party and i'm not sure how i feel about this. if it is really really plot relevant and fun to do okay but otherwise I don't like rehashed content. WoTLK is heralded as the best expac ever yet the entire first raid tier was recycled, i'm aware that kara 2.0 is a big arse dungeon, but, I just don't care for doing the same thing twice. I've run kara 1.0 , a million times trying to get both gorehowl and the mount, I don't want to do it again >:(  

however i do like that they are adding mini tie in raids and that though, that gets a thumbs up. wod desperately needed anything, ANYTHING, so if they are going to make us wait awhile for content, give us something to chew on, so mini raids are a nice between meal snack.

Its awesome with some new content, but I must keep near to demonardvarks feeling.. I know that I really had my share of Kara, and will not be happy to see them turning that into some important raid again.. I remember the pain just to get attuned and get a key, and never mind the hundreds of times I ran it. Just finding a guild with good enough players to take on the content was hard, and, well it payed of, I became a good shockadin, for just a litle time.. I was glad, butt allso full of it, and actually full of most old raids and dungeons.. The draenor ones HC and that shit was allso no good retro feel, its just a litle to fresh in mind.. Ragnaros event where we all got gorehounds was fun though.. I just think I remember the mobs and bosses hitted, but hey, that was more of a retro feel..

It is not as much of you being downer as much as it is your point of view as a player that has been around since at least BC.  Look at the millions of players that did not play during that time and either did not know about it or have not had the chance to go through it.  Going through an "old school" when you are max level three expansions later has no where near the same feel.  Like you said, if it ties into the storyline it will be entertaining, but you have to also look at everything Bliz is doing.  The movie (and future movies) are tied into this expac, if they did not include Karazhan it would be a let down.

I really looking forward to seeing the bosses and running Karazhan again.

I'm looking forward to seeing what bosses they keep (even relatively) the same, and what's going to be NEW...

and Medivh...  where are you, since your magic has been affecting Khadgar's spells...

Did not consider this ^ . Back when legions formal date wasn't known people speculated it would be after the movie launch to generate hype (which was correct). I imagine you nailed it on the head, they had to make sure new players drawn from the movie had something familiar to dive into.

Had my huge share of karazhan in the past but was still looking forward to see this, until I saw it was mythic only :(
Not because I don't want to do it but imo you can do that better in a guild group instead of a random pug group.

Sad Dao.../cry

I have to kinda agree with demonardvark as well. I mean, the Hearthstone adventure has left me with a bittersweet taste... You have this iconic, super spooky raid and you turn it into a party with a younger, handsome Medivh. While the idea is quite innovative and the execution has been pretty good so far, you can't help but feel weird about it when you have experienced the magic of the original Karazhan.

As far as the 7.1 dungeon is concerned, I am not expecting them to recreate that magic but at least it's not going to be a party. I am really looking forward to the music again, it's my favourite in the entire game. Too bad I haven't stepped foot in there since I got the mount...

This Karazhan logo reminds me of Bayonetta, for some reason... Hahaha.

I hope this new Karazhan has a less complicated design and teleports for the areas; I always get lost in that place.

Since they're bringing Karazhan back, I wonder if Ulduar will get a similar treatment, since the pre-patch questline also featured Ulduar, Brann and Magni. Would be awesome if Ulduar became a major city-like environment, with vendors, inns, and such. Now that the Keepers are free from Yogg-Saron's influence and are rebuilding the place (which is noted by the mechagnomes standing by doors during the quest), I'd love to see Ulduar returning in some way; either a safe zone, a dungeon or raid.

It was one of Sargeras' key points in Azeroth's history.  It HAS to be in Legion, IMO. 

 

Following this path, I wonder if we will FINALLY see some sort of recreation of the battle between Aegwynn and Sargeras in cinematic form. The hype would be unbearable.

      The new season begins tomorrow in the US and Wednesday in the EU, and Blizzard have a survival guide video as well as the scedule ffor the Conquest PvP items to go along with the previously announced season 4 conquest notes!
      Check out everything else that's arrived with the new patch right here and the patch notes here.
      Season 4 (source)
      Battle for Azeroth Season 4 begins, January 21 and includes an all-new Affix—Awakened— for Mythic Keystone Dungeons, Heroic Difficulty Darkshore Warfront, and more.
      Mythic Keystone Dungeons Season 4
      Season 4 has a new affix—Awakened. While the Awakened affix is active, players will discover obelisks throughout the dungeon, which will pull players through the veil to the shadowy world of Ny’alotha. There, players will confront a powerful servant of N’Zoth which they must defeat or the servant will join forces with the final boss in the instance. Once the lieutenant has been taken down, the party will be returned to their regular reality in the location they’re currently standing in.
      Reward Updates
      Item levels of rewards from level 120 Normal, Heroic, and Mythic dungeons have been increased by 30 and can now be corrupted by N’Zoth. Baseline rewards are now item-level 400 from Normal, 415 from Heroic, and 430 from non-Keystone Mythic dungeons. During the first week of Season 4, rewards from end-of-run chests will be capped at item-level 445 for Mythic Keystone at +6 difficulty or PvP Rank 2, and the reward cache will contain a Season 3 reward. With the start of the second week of Season 4, the weekly cache will not be affected by the cap, and will reward Season 4 items at higher item levels.
      Check out the Mythic Keystone Dungeon Leaderboards to see who’s staying on top of the clock.
      PvP Season 4
      Season 4 brings new player-versus-player content including the new Teeming Islands Brawl. This large-scale battle brings together two teams of 10 on an island overflowing with powerful creatures. This Brawl brings an additional challenge to the shores of PvP Island Expeditions by increasing the total amount of players from six to 20 on the biggest Islands (Havenswood and Jorundall). Participants can earn two new mounts—the Vicious White Bonesteed (Horde) and Vicious White Warsaber (Alliance) and the highest-rated players will unlock the new Corrupted Gladiator’s Proto-Drake mount.
      Reward Updates
      Item level rewards in Random Battlegrounds have also been increased by 30. During the first week of Season 4, end-of-match rewards will be capped at item-level 445. This will require Challenger rank to earn. Beginning in week 2, Challenger rank rewards will be item-level 460.

      Blizzard have clarified that the mail issues with the Auction House won't affect players in the long-term, aka you don't have to worry your mails will expire. They're working on fixing the newly found issues and it will probably take them a few days. You can check out all the recently added issues at the bottom.
      AH Clarification (source)
      Hello.
      We’d like to clarify that nothing has been lost as a result of this issue. This is an issue with mail delivery, and we’re working to fix it. We currently expect that the fix is going to take a few days.
      During that time, the mail you can’t see is not subject to 30 days expiry. It will only begin counting down from 30 days once we’ve fixed it so that you can see it and interact with it in your inbox.
       
      AH Issues (source)
      Here are some additional issues that we have identified and are actively investigating:
      When items are returned in the mail from the Auction House, it can incorrectly contain more stacks than the displayed maximum of 16. This makes it look like some items are not being delivered. You will know if you are experiencing this if a mail appears empty but can’t be deleted. To retrieve the missing items in this scenario, take out all 16 of the displayed stacks, then close and reopen the mailbox to see the rest (you may need to repeat this several times). If a character buys commodities in high quantities, they may not be able to access their mail. The favorites list is not saving properly. We have resolved some of the issues causing the “Internal Auction Error” to pop up, but it is still occurring and we are continuing to look into it.

      As some players have already noticed, we got confirmation today that War Mode bonuses for Visions of N'Zoth daily quests have been disabled since Thursday. This was done due to a separate issue that will hopefully be resolved in the coming days, when the bonus will be restored.
      Check out everything that's coming with the new patch right here and the patch notes here.
      War Mode Bonus (source)
      We’d like to confirm that, yes, the expected War Mode bonus for Visions of N’Zoth Daily Quests has been disabled since Thursday.
      This was necessary for our team to work to quickly fix a different issue. Our top priority right now is addressing these concerns, and we expect to restore all intended functionality in the coming days.
      War Mode and the bonuses granted by War Mode in all other content are unaffected.
      Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

      We've seen plenty of fan art imagining new class sets, especially since each class is no longer getting their own unique ones, but today we're going back to basics as redditor Anna_Richter took the first ever WoW raid sets and made them her own.

      With Molten Core still in full swing in Classic, these actual items are still very much relevant (not to mention as transmogs in retail), but Blackwing Lair is coming in under a month so Anna might want to go for Tier 2 next! With so many sets to choose for and it taking a fair amount of time to make these she's actually already mentioned what her next projects related to this will be:
      In any case we're definitely looking forward to seeing more from Anna, whichever her choice of set may be - whether it's tier 6, or the wrong choice.

      A big batch has arrived today with fixes to the Auction House, Azerite Powers and Corruption effects, increases to rare spawns, a nerf to the Defragmentation Punchcard in PvP, Vulpera and Mechagnome issue fixes and the usual large amount of quest tweaks and fixes.
      January 17 (source)
      Achievements
      Fixed an issue where a dead player's Damage Over Time effect could cause the raid to fail The Best of Us . Auction House
      Bids now display properly in the sell tab for caged pets. Fixed a bug causing the quantity field to be empty when selling a non-commodity. The “Uncollected” filter now filters owned battle pets as expected. The “Upgrades Only” filter now correctly applies to wands and shields. The "Usable" filter now filters profession-restricted items and owned toys as intended. Purchasing an entire listing now displays the item count in the seller's auction list. Players can now buyout an auction for which they are already the high bidder. Fixed a bug that caused some mail from the Auction House to exclude expected attached gold. Creatures and NPCs
      The Gaze of N'Zoth can now only be faction tapped while in War Mode. Onyx Warserpent’s Lightning Pool no longer hits players harder than intended. Taijing the Cyclone now resets properly. The spawn frequency of several Rare enemies in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms Assault areas has been increased. Items
      Azerite Essences Fixed an issue that caused Breath of the Dying’s minor damage effect at Rank 1 or 2 to benefit from the Rank 3 increased proc chance against low health targets. Corruption Effects Fixed an issue preventing Twilight Devastation from triggering on ranged attacks. Infinite Stars damage reduced by 25% at all Corruption levels. Player versus Player
      The red punchcard Subroutine: Defragmentation now heals for 50% in PvP situations. Fixed an issue causing Breath of the Dying to have an incorrectly-lowered cooldown when used against player pets in PvP. Races
      The Vulpera Holy Relic Trick now heals for the correct amount. Fixed a bug preventing Mechagnomes and Vulpera from using ghost flying mounts when dead in appropriate areas. Fixed an expected sound effect on the voices of Pandaren Death Knights. Quests
      Vulpera can once again proceed during the Tirisfal Glades quest, "A Scarlet Letter ". Players who are outside of the Vision while their party defeats Ysedra the Darkener now receive quest credit for “Deeper Into the Darkness ”. Fixed a bug that could prevent Magni Bronzebeard from spawning as expected in “The Halls of Origination ”. It is again possible to turn in “Ancient Crypt Key ”. Titan Artifacts should now appear for the quest “Unearthed Artifacts ” regardless of the completion status of the Assault bar-fill objective. Assault daily quests such as “The Sun King's Chosen ” or “The Strongest Among Them ” now require 3 Rare kills (was 4). Rare kills now provide more credit for Assaults. User Interface
      Guild and community setting dropdowns no longer appear when they are grayed out. Visions
      Players should now find their Sanity draining more quickly after an extended period within Vision of the Twisting Sands and Vale of Eternal Twilight. Fixed an issue that was preventing an iLvl 430 item from dropping when you had completed two objectives and the boss in a Horrific Vision. This item will be awarded to players on their next run if they satisfy these conditions.
