Legion Hotfixes: October 5th

Recommended Posts

Arcway Forgotten Spirits no longer respawn! Best fix ever. Also some other stuff.

 

Among some relatively small fixes and some more poor prot warrior bashing in the form of a bug fix, we find the most glorious hotfix yet. If you are like me and hate the Arcway, well...you're probably still going to hate it, but significantly less! Those pesky giant, torment casting spirits will no longer respawn!

Blizzard LogoOctober 5th

Classes

  • Druid
    • Moonkin Aura can no longer stack on targets.
  • Paladin
    • Steed of Glory now properly makes the Paladin immune to stun effects.
  • Shaman
    • Spirit Link Totem should no longer be damaged by Druids’ Rage of the Sleeper or Brambles.
  • Warrior
    • (Protection) Fixed a bug where Vengeance could cause Ignore Pain to consume less Rage than intended, but absorb for more.

 

Class Halls

  • The cooldown for all Class Hall abilities which allow you to instantly complete a World Quest has been reduced from 3 days to 18 hours, and the time taken to complete the work order for the item used by these abilities has been reduced to 10 minutes.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes hid the barrier blocking the Feralas Portal in the Emerald Dreamway for Druids who have previously sealed it.
  • Priest dungeon quests from missions will now be turned in to Moira Thaurissan, rather than Alonus Faol, who sometimes has other things to do.

 

Dungeons and Raids

  • The Arcway
    • Forgotten Spirits will no longer respawn in The Arcway.
    • Timeless Wraiths will no longer attack players before they've been Banished In Time.
  • Halls of Valor
    • When Olmyr the Enlightened or Solsten are engaged, the door to Hyrja's room will shut while they are in combat.

 

PvP

  • Druid
    • Fury of Elune can no longer be cast during Arena and Battleground preparation.
  • Demon Hunter
    • Demon Hunters now start arenas with 0 Pain and Fury.
  • Rogue
    • Shadowy Duel now prevents you from assaulting bases in Domination battlegrounds such as Arathi Basin.
  • Shaman
    • Fury of Air can no longer be cast during Arena and Battleground preparation.

 

Quests

  • High-level players should now be eligible for the "Trial of Faith" scenario during the Garrison Campaign.
  • In the Withered Army Training scenario, it should be less likely for Leystalker Dro to be hiding somewhere that he wouldn't normally be encountered by clearing the room.
  • Enigmatic puzzles should no longer become non-responsive when a large number of players try to do the same Enigmatic World Quest puzzle.

Previous hotfixes.

once your army gets enough boosts it shouldn't matter, soon as he pops up set em to rampage and he should die in seconds. i usually clear a few rooms first to make sure i have 30+ withered, but just let them go crazy and he should only be up for 5 seconds.

Yes, he also mopped my withered the first few times I encountered him (not me I'm guardian druid).

But now I can just let the withered go at him and they will kill him swiftly...

 

Still think tanks have great advantage in this scenario though, I can basically just pull entire rooms one after the other without much thought...

early on they do indeed, even now that I have every army booster, there is still a slight advantage for tanks because you can pull bosses attention away from army. bosses only last 20 ish seconds but they can still get in some good cleave attacks, especially the one spider lady boss (too lazy to look up name atm). Basically her only attack is a big cleave swipe so i just face her away and boom no damage.... honestly pretty much like that for every boss. Dro you really can't tank but his health is so low you rampage burn him.

      We have another round of US realm connections coming on August 20th, as 30 servers get joined in various configurations! There will be no extended maintenance this time around, as all mergers will be executed within the regular period.

      We've recently covered the growing issue the community is having with these mergers, so you can check that out as well.
      Realm Connections (source)
      During a scheduled maintenance period planned for 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. PDT on Thursday, August 20, the following realm connections will be made:
      The Eldre’Thalas and Korialstrasz realms will join the Akama, Dragonmaw, and Mug’thol realms. The Korgath realm will join the Cenarius, Perenolde, and Cairne realms. The Blood Furnace, Mannoroth, and Nazjatar realms will join the Azgalor, Azshara, and Destromath realms. The Ursin, Andorhal, Scilla, and Zuluhed realms will join the Eonar and Velen realms. The Madoran, and Dawnbringer realms will join the Azuremyst and Staghelm realms. The Garona realm will join the Icecrown and Malygos realms. Hyjal will join Proudmoore. We are planning more realm connections for low-population realms, and we will post further notifications like this one in the coming weeks.
      Thank you!

      There's been a long-running discussion going about the aesthetics (and general nature) of the Forsaken. Some players ask for options for less tattered clothes, fewer protruding bones and generally a more human look. Others, as you'd expect, think the Forsaken's visual identity as actual undead and more monster-like individuals is a core part of their uniqueness and should actually be even more emphasized. Redditor and artist Nez_the_Quiet is squarely in the second group, at least as far as this amazing art piece goes, as he's imagined Derek Proudmoore and Calia Menethil as more forsaken Forsaken!

      While the double eyeless version of Calia may be a bit much, generally they do show off a lot more character than their in-game counterparts, but with Calia at least that's very intentional, as both her character and origins are a lot more on the light side of things. Derek, on the other hand, just looks straight-up awesome as the boniest pirate ever.
      You can see the discussion about the Forsaken's looks and general themes, especially Calia's potential role (which, as we recently found out is NOT to be the leader of the Forsaken - at least not yet) over in the reddit thread.

      The recent realm connections came with a few adverse side effects, it seems, as Blizzard merged realms of different languages, which creates issues on both ends of the spectrum.
      We've got hit up by @Scholer, who says the recent merge of Al'akir, Skullcrusher, Xavius with Burning Legion (EU) had a negative impact on gameplay because Burning Legion is mainly comprised of Polish players that do not talk English in the channels, so with the merge, there are English-speaking folks who do not understand Polish and vice versa.

      Here's how Trade Chat looks like after the recent realm connections.
      The issue has also been brought up on the official forums and Reddit, where the threads accrued hundreds of responses, the main concern being the recent connection of Frostmane and Aggra, a Portuguese realm.
      Currently, there are no other solutions other than buying a Paid Character Transfer off these realms, which can get quite expensive if you're planning on moving more characters from the affected realm to another.
      One Redditor calculated that it would cost a whopping 13,370 Euros to move the entire guild off the server!
      Has your server been affected by the recent realm connections? Let us know in the comments!

      Happy second birthday to Battle for Azeroth! The current expansion has been very controversial and contentious, but it did experiment with quite a few new concepts that didn't make a fair portion of the player base happy, which they made very clear, and hopefully those interactions will make the game as a whole better in the future. The many layers of RNG were the biggest issue with players in BfA, as well as the massive alt-unfriendlyness aspect, and the story to a certain extent, but the many new power systems introduced do show a willingness for experimentation, which can only be a good thing in the long run. WoW Classic is also only 12 days away from it's first birthday.
      As BfA turns two today, it's getting close to being the longest-running expansion since WoW's inception , so let's take a look at just how close it is. Here are all the expansions durations, as well as the base game for comparison:
      0. Vanilla WoW

      2 Years, 1 Month, 24 Days (784 Days Total)
      The one that started it all, and was even remade as WoW Classic.
       
      1. Wrath of the Lich King

      Source.
      2 Years, 25 Days (755 Days Total)
      Many players' favorite period in WoW, WotLK was the first expansion to push a very strong story narrative and focus on the final villain throughout the entire expansion, giving the final confrontation atop Icecrown Citadel a lot more weight.
       
      2. Mists of Pandaria

      Source.
      2 Years, 19 Days (749 Days Total)
      A somewhat controversial expansion, as some players deemed it to be too childish, but it turned out to be one of WoW's best to date.
       
      3. Legion

      1 Year, 11 Months, 15 Days (714 Days Total)
      Standing alongside Wrath of the Lich King, this is most players' favorite WoW expansion, as we saw the culmination of the Burning Legion storyline unfold.
       
      4*. Battle for Azeroth

      2 Years (731 Days Total), Ongoing
       
      5. The Burning Crusade

      1 Year, 9 Months, 29 Days (668 Days Total)
      The first ever expansion, it opened up so many new avenues for the game to go in, and showed us how to fly in World of Warcraft.
       
      6. Cataclysm

      Source.
      1 Year, 9 Months, 19 Days (659 Days Total)
      While revamping the old world was a brilliant move, the expansion itself wasn't that popular, with a rather anticlimactic ending in the Dragon Soul raid.
       
      7. Warlords of Draenor

      Source.
      1 Year, 9 Months, 17 Days (656 Days Total)
      As a large part of WoD was scrapped, we never got to see the expansion as it was intended, but the introduction to player housing through garrisons was very welcome, and is definitely one of the ideas that should be iterated on come future expansions.
       
      WoW Classic is at 354 days, but technically isn't an expansion, so it doesn't get an entry, but it does make an interesting question to see when (if?) Classic TBC might be coming and how long it could last!
       
      So, the expansion winner is clearly WotLK, only 30 days away from beating Vanilla's record, with MoP in second place merely 6 days behind. Meanwhile, BfA is only 25 days away from beating WotLK, 54 from Vanilla, starting today, and will almost certainly become the longest running WoW period in history, unless Shadowlands surprises us and comes out before mid-September.
      And there we have it, we did some timewalking ourselves and took a look at the real numbers behind the expansions, as they most certainly differ from what it felt like while playing those same expansions  - who would have thought WoD was the shortest expansion (despite it only having 2 major content patches, that post 6.2 period felt like an eternity)! As we look forward to Shadowlands we can see the expansions generally do conform to the 2-year period, with some 3-4 month exceptions. Whether that's the correct amount of time, given enough content, or if we'll see some changes in the future, perhaps longer individual expansion times with more patches in them, remains to be seen.
      As BfA turns 2, we take a look at all the expansion and Vanilla durations and compare them!

      Niya, one of the Soulbinds available to members of the Night Fae Covenant, provided an interesting Soulbind trait that mimicked the Shadowmeld Night Elf racial but was removed in the latest Beta Build.
      If you decide to join the Night Fae Covenant in Shadowlands, you will gain access to the Soulshape Signature Ability, which increases your Movement Speed by 50% and teleports you 15 yards forward on a short cooldown.
      Blizzard initially gave Niya the Sylvari Mantle trait that concealed you when Soulshape ended until you moved, so it worked just much like Shadowmeld, the Night Elf racial.
      In the latest Beta Build, they scrapped the ability entirely and replaced it with Run Without Tiring which makes you generate 5% of max health every 3 seconds when in Soulshape.
      Niya's Soulbind Path has been adjusted as follows:
      Row 1: Run Without Tiring (new) // Stay on the Move Row 4: Niya's Tools: Burrs // Niya's Tools: Poison // Niya's Tools: Herbs Row 7: Care Package // Swift Patrol Row 8: Grove Invigoration Note that you can only pick one Soulbind trait per row.
      Here's Niya's full Soulbind Path.
