Item Lets You Avoid Getting De-masqueraded

Recommended Posts

You can buy Shimmerfield Crystals from a vendor in Suramar.

 

Reddit strikes again! Now, I realize this might be another of those things where everyone knew this but me, but on the off-chance there's someone else out there without this I felt I had to mention it. Redditor Argentha shared this proest of tips, possibly the most relevant one I've heard in the entire game ever: in Suramar, next to the Waning Crescent portal exit, there's an NPC called Jacin that sells Shimmerfield Crystals that put you into stealth when your Masquereade is broken:

Now, before you start jumping around in joy like I did, note that it does NOT work when you're mounted, since it cancels the effect. That does reduce it's usability to a degree, but it's till the best item ever for those extremely annoying elite quests where everyone and their mother is a detector. Unfortunately you can't just pop it just as you're about to get caught while mounted since it has a cast time. It lasts 5 mins, has a 3 minute cooldown period and you can buy multiples.

So huge thanks to Argentha, and everyone else that mentioned this even sooner on reddit. You may now tell me how everyone already knew this and how silly I look!

Nice. This'll be a life saver when it comes to the quests when there are mobs that can see through all around

Like I mention in the article, I have started HATING those elite quests in Suramar. Basically you cannot get to your party without bringing with you 50 mobs and then there's that awkward decision of do you stay and let them deal with the shit you just dragged in or do you try to run past them and "lose" the tail, except you never can and just wind up aggroing MORE mobs and dying. This will be a lifesaver.

At this point in time I only do suramar in tank mode and if I pull something by mistake I just go rambo, gorefiends grasp everything, and end up fighting an entire city block at a time. Works fine except for the right side of the city where even the basic adds are basically raid bosses.

Just in case you did not know this aswell:

Throughout suramar you can find plenty of baskets to hide in, whenever your disguise breaks just hop into one and reapply your disguise before exiting. saved my marbles from those 'tails' you're talking about more than once.

I actually did know this and yet have NEVER seen one, let alone been able to use one to hide in.

It can be tough when you have an entire city all running at you, ready to beat the crap out of you in a heartbeat!

Fleeing from mobs in Suramar an hiding in baskets feels like Assassin's Creed.

So does flying around the rooftops double jumping all over the place! Man when I play my alt after my DH main I feel like I'm playing a cheap knok-off game...

Pardon me, Jacin, I need to throw gold at you.

If I'd known about these yesterday (When the hubby and I started the Statecraft chain) I would have hated that run a lot less.

I feel like the Spongebob meme that got thrown at Overwatch fits perfectly in Suramar tbh..

      Blizzard has updated the character creation screen, making newly-created characters wear fancier, better-looking armor, to give players an idea about how their class would look wearing an armor set.
      The Demon Hunter set remains unchanged, so we're listing the remaining classes that have received new armor sets for preview. Note that the sets are there just for preview and they're not actual starter sets!

      Druid

      Hunter

      Mage

      Monk

      Paladin

      Ardenweald Zone Preview (Screenshots) Fire Mage Class Changes: June 3rd Ardenweald and Night Fae Covenant (Official Preview) Oribos Portal Added to Portal Rooms in Main Cities Torghast Development Notes: June 3rd
    • By Starym
      We have one of the biggest Torghast updates since Alpha launched today, as all classes are now available and have anima powers, Torments have been revamped to be additional challenges instead of a timer, and a lot more Anima power tweaks, bug fixes etc.
      June 3 (source)
      All classes now have Anima Powers and can venture into Torghast.
      Many classes have received new Anima Powers that affect their Covenant Class abilities.
      Torment Update!
      Torments no longer scale with time.
      Torments are now additional challenges based on the floor types you have encountered on this run.
      Developers’ notes: We’ve heard your feedback that Torments were adding too much time pressure. The Jailer may still torment you on higher levels of Torghast, but Torments will not scale with time. Breath of Coldheart  now increases the health of enemy monsters by a flat percentage based on the number of Coldheart Interstitia floors climbed.
      Mort'regar's Echoes now increase the Magic damage enemy monsters inflict by a flat percentage based on the number of Mort’regar floors climbed.
      Might of the Upper Reaches now increases the Physical damage enemy monsters inflict by a flat percentage based on the number of Upper Reaches floors climbed.
      Developers’ notes: The changes above were inspired by feedback that Torments that reduce your power feel worse than torments that affect your enemies. As always, we will continue to tune and keep a close eye on difficulty. Rewards and Access
      Legendary materials now only drop from cell block runs, not from the Twisting Corridors.
      Developers’ notes: Looting a Resonating Chest may generate a message that says that you have received “bonus materials” for a “timely completion”. This is an artifact from a previous design that has since been removed, and can be ignored. Chests in the Twisting Corridors now drop Twisted Dust , which will be used for cosmetic rewards.
      Portals to the six cell blocks (not the Twisting Corridors) now take you to fully-randomized 6-block runs, rather than the pre-set quest run. This includes a Wayfinder on floor 1 that allows you to choose your difficulty.
      Two of Torghast’s six cell blocks are open per week. For testing purposes, the available blocks will change daily. They will change weekly in the final version of the game.
      Access to the Twisting Corridors will always be available in addition to the two theme blocks.
      Developers’ notes: Players who seek Legendary materials alone can do so in Torghast’s cell blocks, and can earn more materials by climbing higher. Players who are looking for cosmetics, or who simply want to play without pressure, can do so in the Twisting Corridors. More Notes
      This build includes many bug fixes. Thank you very much for your bug reports! Remember: Alpha is alpha. Things will still change, especially rewards, tuning, and Torghast’s interaction with outside systems. We really appreciate all of your testing and feedback. Many huge Torghast changes have arrived today.

      Blizzard today outlined changes coming to Fire Mages in the near future on Shadowlands Alpha to give players more agency over spreading Ignite.
      The devs want to give Fire Mages more agency over spreading Ignite. At first, they wanted to make Fire Blast spread it, but the spell is used for Hot Streak, so they will make Phoenix's Flames baseline for Fire Mages, giving players more choice over when to spread Ignite. A replacement talent for Phoenix's Flames will be added in future builds.
      (Source)
      We want to make Ignite spread something the player has agency over, and first experimented with the past system of making Fire Blast spread it. However, because of the importance of using Fire Blast for Hot Streak very frequently, we’ve seen feedback that this creates a lot of tension and still makes it difficult to control when you and don’t want Ignite to spread.
      In the next alpha build, we’re going to try letting Phoenix's Flames fill this role, as a baseline spell for Fire Mages. This gives Phoenix's Flames a unique function and identity as a core spell, as well as allowing for more choice over when to spread Ignite. If we continue with the change, we’ll look into a new talent to replace Phoenix's Flames in upcoming builds.
