Here's the latest recap of blue posts. Expect a PTR Patch with lots of class changes to hit PTRs soon. Aside from that it deals with Mythic+, Karazhan pugs, Havoc Demon Hunters, Warlocks & Paladins.

Blue Posts

This is a summary of the latest blue posts which Blizzard has been answering lately. Some of them go back to the Legion Dev Q/A, where a player considered the Q/A discussion a touch meanspirited and a bit high handed.

Blizzard LogoBlizzard Entertainment

I think the big problem is the balance discussion in the QA came over a bit high handed or even a touch meanspirited.
While it is likely not exactly as it was intended, the whole 'we know yall need buffs but if you become the top spec it will upset the peole who play that spec so no love for you' impression taken from the QA was sort of crappy, especially for people playing Elemental or Frost - who also dedicated a lot of time and AP
in the hopes that they would be buffed not to be better than Unholy or Enhance, but on par.

Dev Q&A and Class Balance

Sorry to hear that it came across that way. 

Just to be clear, I was trying to explain why we sometimes may seem conservative or slow with balance changes. Frost mages were used as an example of a spec that we do feel is currently lagging behind in raid and dungeon gameplay, but not by nearly as much as data from public log sites might suggest. It seems less disruptive to buff a spec incrementally, allowing time for the results of each change to play out and repeating if needed, rather than risking overshooting the mark. (And yes, we definitely have failed in this goal at times - post-launch rogue spec balance comes to mind.)

At the heart of balance concerns is the fact that people just want to be able to feel like they have a place in the endgame as their preferred class/spec, and we entirely share that goal. Class balance is an ongoing process, with new variables coming into play all the time, as item level increases, new trinkets, legendaries, and set bonuses enter the mix, players get deeper into their respective artifact trees, theorycraft evolves, etc.

The Q&A didn't delve into specific details because the exact list of changes is and was still evolving. There will be a new 7.1 build on PTR very shortly, and patch notes to follow. That patch contains some improvements for several of the specs that currently are currently underperforming (including both flavors of Frost). Those changes should in general move things in the right direction, but we'll be continuing to watch and adjust further as needed.

Another post talks about Karazhan pugs, what the required item level would be and why people looking for pugs are setting a minimum required item level to join that is way higher than the actual item level of a raid's Normal difficulty.

Blizzard LogoBlizzard Entertainment

"ilvl 860+ required!!"...... watch people ask for those ilvl demands when 7.1 comes out in 8 days :D
you might even see 865+ only :P

Karazhan Pug Item Level Requirement
That already happens in 5-man heroic and regular mythics runs.

There's nothing inherently wrong with having premade groups with inflated min ilvl requirements. 

The game gives players enough freedom for them to organize themselves in any way they want, it’s part of the social aspect of the game and extremely important for any mmorpg. 

Some geared players might just want to do a few fast runs and thus will use a very high minimum ilvl requirement on their heroic or mythic runs. 
Others (more altruistically) might instead put an even lower ilvl requirement than LFG has, just to help a few friends gear up more quickly than they’d do on their own.

In the end, nothing is stopping anyone from starting their own group with the ilvl requirement they feel is more appropriate for any particular content. It’s all in the hands of the player (save a few hard caps here and there).

GL in Karazhan! Hope you enjoy all the surprises it has in store for you and all the nostalgia moments!

Ninja-leaving of Mythic+ dungeons was already discussed in the latest Q/A and Blizzard can't find a way  to fix this without resulting in a big abuse of the system, which is why you should always play with players you know and communicate (use VoIP) to prevent ninja-leaves.

Blizzard LogoBlizzard Entertainment

Mythic Keystones

This was one of the things touched on in the Q&A last week.

We definitely appreciate it's a frustrating experience having someone dropping mid-run from a keystone group. It's something we've been looking at but haven't yet come up with an alternative that wouldn't invite more serious abuse of the system.

If you can swap in other people, the party leader could theoretically replace people with his friends. If your keystone didn't deplete if someone dropped, it would invite people to ALT+F4 or drop as soon as something went wrong which reduces the associated challenge of a mythic keystone run - particularly at the higher end.

Keystones are plentiful right now, and if one run doesn't work out, then another one might. We like the social aspect of people finding new friends via the Pre-Made Groups finder who then link up later on to tackle higher difficulty keystones.

In an ideal world it's best to go with people you know, but realistically that's not always a possibility. That's why it's always a good idea to make sure everyone is on the same page at the start of the run, before the keystone is even used. If it's intended to be a 3 chest run, communicate it. If you're just going for the clear, communicate it, so you don't have someone drop mid-run because they wanted multiple chests. 

Again, we understand that it's a frustrating experience to be involved in, and it's something we're continually monitoring. There have been some interesting suggestions in this thread, so please keep those coming.

Havoc Demon Hunter

Can Havoc DH Issues be looked at? Pt. 2

Moving to the Demon Hunter forums.

I somehow missed part one of this thread, sorry for letting it cap out. I'll review this in the morning and get some questions out to the development team so we can share some insight on upcoming DH changes. Hopefully I will be able to help explain our thinking/philosophy here.

Thanks for all the patience!

Paladin Crusade & Changes

CrusadeCrusade is the single talents that makes Retributions Paladins viable, don't change it!

What do you mean by "potentially incorrect datamined information"?

Up until the most recent PTR build, every datamined change was reflected on the PTR version. As of right now, Crusade isn't even functioning on the PTR, and the tooltip has reverted to the live version (except all of the numbers are replaced with 0).
I assume this is a PTR bug that you're seeing.


An update on this from the development team: we've reverted the change on PTR that folks were seeing from datamined information. Crusade will be staying the same in 7.1 as it is on live currently.

We may take another look at this skill in the future (design-wise), however, and when and if we do so we will look to the community for feedback.

Thanks for your feedback on this everyone!

Outlaw Rogues

I've sent off another round of questions for developers on the topic of Outlaw and our plans/goals moving into 7.1.

You guys will be the first to know when I hear anything, of course. Hoping to have something to share tomorrow

Warlock Talent Changes
Got some answers from the development team on this.

The aim and ultimate goal of the swap is to create competition in the talent rows, with a secondary intent of adjusting tankiness and mobility overall. With this change (taking tuning into account), there should now be more interesting choices in some rows, instead of the usual feel of "mandatory-ness" that we've seen in this past cycle.

Demon Skin previously dwarfed its competition in nearly ever situation, and its combination with Dark Pact offered too much survivability.

With Demonic Circle, we heard the broad feedback about how it was missed when players had to opt-out of taking it because of better picks in its row. Now that it's lined up against more equally-powered and niche talents, we believe Demonic Circle will see more use overall.

Hope this answers some of your questions - I'm here for feedback and discussion on this.

Funny, when it came to class balance response I was one of the many who interpreted it as "well F you guys" glad to see political back petaling going on XD.

Even as a big fan of both Frost specs I didn't get the "F you" vibe from what Ion said in the live Q and A.  What I got out of it was that while Frost might be 25% behind Fire in logs, it might only be 10% behind of it were being played and theorycrafted at the same level as Fire.  They don't know the exact number though, so they want to take the safe approach and make small adjusrments because changing specs, or Metzen forbid mains, is a miserable experience at this point of the xpac.

I think that's just Ion's communication style.  Doesn't seem malicious, just not PR-oriented (and why would it be?  He's a coder)

      What's coming in Patch 7.3.2? The official patch notes are here!
      The patch is full of bug fixes and tuning in preparation for Antorus, the Burning Throne raid. The new raid won't open immediately, but at a later time after Patch 7.3.2 goes live. The update is available for background download through the Blizzard Battle.net app, so the patch will probably arrive sooner than expected with Antorus opening later after BlizzCon.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Patch 7.3.2 includes:
      General bug fixes and minor class balance changes. Additional currency support in Battle.net. Additional tuning in preparation for Antorus, the Burning Throne raid dungeon’s release.

      Restored the mission-complete button on the map. Updated to support 7.3.2 patch. PLAYER VERSUS PLAYER

      Redditor eke00372 uploaded a video of Argus the Unmaker from PTR. Blizzard opened Antorus for testing and a guild was able to access the raid's final boss, even though testing should have ended with Aggramar. The fight is still very unfinished. The boss can be CCed and isn't even an elite.
      After defeating Aggramar, you talk to Magni and get teleported to the Seat of the Pantheon.
      The fight takes place in an area called Seat of the Pantheon.

      Rewards
      Multiple rewards await after you defeat Legion's final boss.
      Scythe of the Unmaker (Polearm Weapon Transmog).

      Shackled Ur'zul mount drops from Mythic Argus.

      Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal is obtained when you complete Blood of a Titan.

      Insignia of the Grand Army from completing The Death of a Titan.

      Everything you need to know about Legendary items in Patch 7.3.2.
      In Patch 7.3.2, Legendary items can be upgraded to item level 1,000. Blizzard also added Legendary tokens and a ring that empowers traits from the Netherlight Crucible.
      Upgrading Legendary Items
      In Patch 7.3.2 Legendary items can be upgraded to item level 1,000. The Cursed Shard quest is started by looting Cursed Shard. The item has a variety of sources. It can drop in LFR or you can get it by doing the first Random Heroic Dungeon of the day. Once you bring it to Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran, you will get 10 Wakening Essences. Collect 50 Wakening Essences to get Awoken Titan Essence and upgrade a Legendary item to 1,000.
      Sources
      The Kirin Tor emissary bag did not reward any essences on PTR, but this can be random and needs further confirmation. Maybe they can only be collected from Argus faction bags. Antorus bosses drop a random amount of essences. Garothi Worldbreaker dropped 4 in LFR.
      Source Amount Status Mythic Order Hall Cache (Once a week) 20 Wakening Essences Confirmed Antorus Bosses (Each boss) 4 Wakening Essences (LFR 1st Boss) Confirmed Emissary Bag (Complete 5 World Quests) ? Wakening Essences Amount TBA First Random Heroic Dungeon (Once a day) 5 Wakening Essences Confirmed Weekly PvP Quests (2v2, 3v3, 10v10)
      ? Wakening Essences Amount TBA Cursed Shard (The Cursed Shard quest / one-time-only) 10 Wakening Essences Confirmed New Legendary Items
      Two Legendary item will be added in Patch 7.3.2. The legendary ring will be available to players that defeat Argus the Unmaker on Normal difficulty or higher and the trinket is a drop from Argus the Unmakere. The ring's affix increases the effects of Light and Shadow powers from the Netherlight Crucible by 50%. You can find more information in our Netherlight Crucible guide.
      Light Powers: Infusion of Light, Light's Embrace, Light Speed, Refractive Shell, Secure in the Light, Shocklight. Shadow Powers: Chaotic Darkness, Dark Sorrows , Master of Shadows, Murderous Intent, Shadowbind, Torment the Weak. Recently, Blizzard updated one of the Path of the Titans trinkets (Aman'Thul's Vision) to item level 1,000 and now it is a Legendary item that does not count toward the 2 Legendary cap. Path of the Titans trinkets can be upgraded with Pantheon's Blessing up to item level 1,000, so we're not sure yet, if all trinkets will be of Legendary quality after upgrading them to the maximum item level. More information can be found here.
      Item Effect Source Aman'Thul's Vision Approximately 1.4 procs per minute Your spells and abilities have a chance to grant you 6,716 Speed, Avoidance, and Leech for 12 sec.

      Aman'Thul's Grandeur
      When empowered by the Pantheon, your Intellect is increased by 6,700 for 15 sec.
      Drops from Argus the Unmaker. The item is not listed in the standard Legendary loot tables. Insignia of the Grand Army Increase the effects of Light and Shadow powers granted by the Netherlight Crucible by 50%. The Death of a Titan (Quest) - Defeat Argus the Unmaker on Normal difficulty or higher. Legendary Tokens
      Patch 7.3.2 adds new Legendary tokens to help keep gameplay on your main rewarding. Legendary tokens will start dropping when you collect ALL Legendary items on your class, in other words, on your main. Collecting ALL Legendary items designated for a single specialization won't suffice. Legendary tokens are BoA, so they can be sent to your alts (even when they are on a different realm). Use them to discover a random Legendary item.

      You can start collecting Wakening Essences right away. You don't need to loot Cursed Shard or accept any quests first. All Legendary items that drop after Antorus opens will have item level 1,000. All crafted Legendary items will be of item level 1,000 by default when Antorus opens. Awoken Titan Essence is used to upgrade a single Legendary item to item level 1,000. You need to collect more Wakening Essences in order to upgrade additional Legendary items. Legendary tokens won't drop unless you collect ALL legendary items on your class. Blizzard mentioned in the latest Q/A that the team is closely monitoring the drop rate of Legendary items. Two legendaries are a standard for raiding, so they may increase the drop rate of the first few Legendary items on a character. At the moment, Blizzard has no plans to increase the Legendary item cap to 3. If you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments.

      Antorus will open soon and it's time to look at all the trinkets that drop inside the new raid that will go live with Patch 7.3.2.
      An overview of all trinkets from Antorus, sorted by class roles.
      Last week, we previewed all Tier 21 set bonuses and in this overview, we're exploring all trinkets and their various effects. All the data should be up-to-date as of the latest Patch 7.3.2 Build 25326.
      Tank Trinkets
      It's interesting to point out the synergy between Eye of F'harg and Eye of Shatug. Both trinkets have two effects and drop from the Hounds of Sargeras (second boss). Every 30 seconds, you can switch between those two trinkets. I imagine it to work exactly like Anathema / Benediction did back in Vanilla. Obviously, only 1 Eye of the Hounds trinket can be equipped at the same time and if your nearby tank-specialized ally bears the opposite eye, you gain either Versatility or Armor. It will be interesting to see how the switching plays out during progression.
      Name Effect Source Aggramar's Conviction Aggramar's Fortitude - Taking damage has a chance to increase your Versatility by 4,354 for 14 sec. When empowered by the Pantheon, your maximum health is increased by 1,619,543 for 15 sec, and you are healed to full health. Argus the Unmaker Apocalypse Drive Hammer-Forged - Reduce the damage of the next 10 melee attacks against you by up to 981,700 each. Lasts up to 20 sec. Suffering melee attacks reduces the cooldown of this ability by 1 sec. (2 min cooldown) Garothi Demolisher Diima's Glacial Aegis Chilling Nova - Increase your Armor by 8,357 for 12 sec, and inflict 348,257 Frost damage to enemies within 12 yds and reduce their movement speed by 70% for 12 sec. (60 sec cooldown) Asara, Mother of Night Eye of F'harg Eye of the Hounds - Grants 528 Versatility to a nearby tank-specialized ally bearing the opposite Eye.
      Swap Hounds - Transform to Eye of Shatug. (30 sec cooldown)
      F'harg Eye of Shatug Eye of the Hounds - Grants ??? Armor to a nearby tank-specialized ally bearing the opposite Eye.
      Swap Hounds - Transform to Eye of F'harg. (30 sec cooldown)
      F'harg Riftworld Codex Unstable Portals - Taking damage has a chance to open a portal to another world, either healing you, providing an absorption shield, or empowering you with shadowflame magic. Approximately 3 procs per minute. Portal Keeper Hasabel Smoldering Titanguard Bulwark of Flame - Channel a Bulwark of Flame that absorbs 18,405,746 damage for 3 sec. When the Bulwark expires you unleash 4 Waves of Flame, dealing 966,089 Fire damage to all enemies in their path. You cannot move or use abilities during Bulwark of Flame. (2 min cooldown) Aggramar Healer Trinkets
      Name Effect Source Carafe of Searing Light Refreshing Agony - Sear an enemy with holy light, inflicting 588,708 Holy damage over 18 sec. Restores 4,991 mana each time damage is dealt. (60 sec cooldown, 50 yd range)  Varimathras Eonar's Compassion Eonar's Verdant Embrace - Your healing effects have a chance to grow an Emerald Blossom nearby, which heals a random injured ally for 127,273 every 2 sec. Lasts 12 sec. When empowered by the Pantheon, your next 4 direct healing spells grant the target a shield that prevents 250,782 damage for 30 sec. Approximately 1.2 procs per minute. Argus the Unmaker Garothi Feedback Conduit Feedback Loop - Your healing effects have a chance to increase your Haste by 855 for 8 sec, stacking up to 5 times. This is more likely to occur when you heal allies who are at low health. Approximately 10 procs per minute. Garothi Worldbreaker Highfather's Machination Highfather's Timekeeping - Your healing effects have a chance to apply a charge of Highfather's Timekeeping for 60 sec, max 5 charges. When the ally falls below 50% health, Highfather's Timekeeping is consumed to instantly heal them for 216,140 health per charge. Approximately 10 procs per minute. Asara, Mother of Night Ishkar's Felshield Emitter Felshield - Place a Felshield on an ally, absorbing 2,416,492 damage for 9 sec. When the shield is consumed or expires, it explodes dealing 50% of the absorbed damage as Fire split amongst all enemies within 8 yds.

(1.5 min cooldown, 50 yd range) Portal Keeper Hasabel Caster / Ranged DPS Trinkets
      Name Effect Source Acrid Catalyst Injector Cycle of the Legion - Your damaging spells that critically strike have a chance to increase your Haste, Mastery, or Critical Strike by 92 for 45 sec, stacking up to 5 times.

Approximately 9 procs per minute.  Garothi Demolisher Norgannon's Prowess Norgannon's Command - Your damaging spells have a chance to increase your Intellect by 11,483 for 12 sec. When empowered by the Pantheon, you gain 6 charges of Norgannon's Command for 15 sec. Your damaging spells expend a charge to inflict an additional 161,332 damage to the target, from a random school of magic. Argus the Unmaker Sheath of Asara Shadow Blades - Your damaging spells have a chance to conjure 6 Shadow Blades. After 2 sec, the swords begin launching foward, each dealing 56,864 Shadow damage to the first enemy in their path and increasing damage taken from your subsequent Shadow Blades by 10% for 3 sec, up to 50%. Approximately 1.7 procs per minute. Asara, the Mother of Night Terminus Signaling Beacon Legion Bombardment - Call a Legion ship to bombard the target's location for 9 sec, dealing 353,311 Fire damage to all targets within 12 yds, including the ship. (2 min cooldown, 50 yd range) Admiral Svirax Melee DPS Trinkets
      Name Effect Source Forgefiend's Fabricator Fire Mines - Your melee and ranged attacks have a chance to plant Fire Mines at the enemy's feet.

Garothi Demolisher Golganneth's Vitality Golganneth's Thunderous Wrath - Your damaging abilities have a chance to create a Ravaging Storm at your target's location, inflicting 524,262 Nature damage split among all enemies within 6 yds over 6 sec.

      Aggramar Seeping Scourgewing Shadow Strike - Your melee attacks have a chance to deal 329,772 Shadow damage to the target. If there are no other enemies within 8 yds of them, this deals an additional 176,662 damage. Approximately 3 procs per minute. Varimathras Shadow-Singed Fang Flames of F'harg - Your melee and ranged abilities have a chance to increase your Strength or Agility by 4,548 for 12 sec. Approximately 3 procs per minute.
      Corruption of Shatug - Your autoattacks have a chance to increase your Critical Strike by 2,201 for 12 sec. Approximately 3 procs per minute.
      F'harg Hybrid Trinkets
      Aman'Thul's Vision's secondary "When empowered by the Pantheon..." effect increases your primary attribute, not just Intellect as indicated in the tooltip. The item ignores the maximum cap of Legendary items (2) that can equipped at once. In order for the secondary "When empowered by the Pantheon..." effects to proc, your raid members need to have four Path of the Titans trinkets equipped. The proc only works in Antorus the Burning Throne and Aman'Thul's Vision's buff serves as a wild card for the effect to activate. You can learn more about Pantheon trinkets here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      While it won't function in Mythic+ we did change the six requirement so you only need four unique buffs to trigger the Pantheon secondary proc inside Antorus. You can have any possible combination of the unique five to activate this additional proc. Aman'Thul's Vision ignores the rule as a "wildcard" filling any gap that you might be missing from the other five. Trinkets listed in this section can be used and are winnable by multiple class roles.
      Name Winnable by Effect Source Aman'Thul's Vision All class roles Aman'Thul's Grandeur Your spells and abilities have a chance to grant you 3,840 Speed, Avoidance, and Leech for 12 sec.

When empowered by the Pantheon, your Critical Strike, Haste, Mastery, or Versatility is increased by 9,215 for 15 sec. Khaz'goroth always empowers your highest secondary stat. Argus the Unmaker Prototype Personnel Decimator Casters & Melee DPS Prototype Personnel Decimator - Your ranged attacks and spells have a chance to launch a Homing Missile if your target is at least 10 yds away, dealing up to 243,786 Fire damage to all enemies within 20 yds.

Garothi Worldbreaker Vitality Resonator Casters & Healers Reverberating Vitality - Redirect the life force of an enemy, increasing your Intellect by up to 9,705 for 15 sec.

      The upcoming Patch 7.3.2 is now available for background download in the Blizzard Battle.net app.
      Patch 7.3.2 Release Date Speculation
      So far, each Legion patch has been released 77 days apart. If Blizzard keeps to that schedule, Patch 7.3.2 would go live on November 14, 2017 in Americas or November 15, 2017 in Europe.
      Antorus the Burning Throne
      If the patch goes live as expected, Antorus the Burning Throne raid would open on the same day in Normal / Heroic difficulty with LFR's first wing & Mythic difficulty available one week later (November 21).
      The background download has an estimated size of ~850 MB.
